Insurance Is Important

It is very easy when working as a #life-coach or #business-coach to underestimate the level of insurance cover you need. There are many reasons for this under estimation which might include that you do not understand your legal liabilities or that you do not have an up-to-date valuation of your assets.

During our life coach training diploma we discuss the main types of insurance that life coaches and business #coaches should consider. We recommend that you take out a policy which includes professional indemnity and public liability even if you do not meet your clients face to face. Let me explain, public liability covers you in the event that you have claims made by members of the public for incidents which happen in relation to your business activities by covering the cost of compensation for: personal injuries, losses of or damage to property. You may feel that you are never going to have a client to your premises but there may be a time in the future when a wealthy or prestigious person wants to meet you before hiring your services and you decided to meet in a hotel. Anything can happen which may or may not be under your control.

Professional indemnity insurance (PI) covers your legal costs and any expenses incurred in your defence, including any costs or damages awarded, if you are alleged to have provided inadequate advice or services that caused your client to lose money. I realise that as life coaches we do not give advice but you cannot control the way the client interprets your questioning guidance. As business coaches there may be times where advice is asked for.

We recommend that you take out a policy which includes professional indemnity and public liability and if you go to our website http://www.achievementspecialists.co.uk/Life_Coaching/Insurance

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has been headlining the news. It was announced that it is being adopted by the UK ahead of Europe.
Since 16th February 2017, I have been posting some interesting and important details about the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which is expected to come into force around the middle of 2018 because I wanted my coaches to be prepared well in advance.
In my blogs on the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) I have looked at what was being proposed from a coach point of view. In the initial entry I explained the importance of coaches in knowing about the rules which will be coming in with the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and although all of my coaches will have a full understanding of the need to register and abide by the current rules I am sadly aware that many life coaching and business coaching courses are lacking in detail and especially within the business set up area. This a a critical area for coaches and it is my belief that they should be fully aware of their legal responsibilities before they leave the workshop part of the course.
My General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) post on the 22nd February covers the information you, as a coach, hold on your clients and suppliers.
Following up on the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) the posting on the 3rd March deals with privacy notices which will need to be changed in time for the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) implementation.
On 4th April I covered the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) again with an article on Rights of the Individual. Procedures coaches need to ensure all the rights of individuals include how you delete personal data or provide data electronically in a commonly used format.
The main rights for individuals under the GDPR will be:
• subject access,
• inaccuracies corrected,
• information erased,
• direct marketing,
• prevent automated decision-making and profiling, and
• data portability (updated one)
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has references to both ‘consent’ and ‘explicit consent’. Do you know the difference? I looked at this aspect in my post on the 8th June 2017.
I am concerned about the lack of information for the micro business which most coaches fall into. Please be aware of your responsibilities, as I know the coaches who have been on my workshops will be fully aware of.
Make sure you have registered and if not, here is the link www.ico.org.uk/for-organisations/data-protection-reform/

Spring and Life Coaching

Spring
I love spring as for me it represents all the aspects of Life Coaching at its best. Spring delivers sunshine and showers, the yin and yang of life. It is the sunshine combined with the showers which create the environment for new growth and because of all this new growth the animals start reproducing to maximise the opportunities of great abundance of food.

This has for me, huge resemblance to life coaching; Spring and Life Coaching are full of energy, opportunities and new growth. Most people are excited when Spring arrives as it brings with it new life in all its forms and I always feel the same excitement when I am coaching my clients. Usually when a client comes to me for coaching they are stuck and lacking in energy or direction. Just like being at the end of winter, the joys and excitement of Christmas and New Year are long gone and the days are still short, grey and cold.

Spring sunshine brings out the best in people, it invigorates, it warms, it lifts human spirits and provides the energy and impetus to take action. Life coaching does the same, it brings out the best in people, it energises clients, it lifts their spirits and confidence and it gives them the impetus to take action. It warms both he client’s and the coach’s hearts.

Spring also brings Read More

Cartesian Questions For Confusion

On my Life Coaching diploma level 7 course I demonstrate and the delegates practice many useful tools and techniques. These tools and techniques range from how to convert an inquiry into a paying client to how to use NLP when coaching. One of the easiest to use and most effective tools covered on the life coaching course, Cartesian Questions, can be used when a client is unsure or shows hesitancy in describing a goal or course of action.
When a client is confused or unsure of the next step, an average coach will run roughshod or skim over any doubts and go straight for actions. This is a natural response for non-trained coaches and sometimes

Client Data on your mobile – is it safe?

Tags: , , , , , , , , Business, Coaching

Padlock
We often forget that our mobile devices hold client information because we overlook the odd text or email which has been received on our mobile device.

Recent surveys have shown that 75% of mobile devices have information which is work based/sensitive stored on them and that nearly 50% of these devices are not encrypted with around 30+% not password protected.

Ask yourself this question,

‘Do I hold any information on my mobile devices which relates to my coaching business?’

If the answer to the above question is ‘yes’, the next and very important question is, Read More

The Law of Three

The Law of Three

Colin Edwards and the Law of Three

Although is around ten years since I was last involved with magazine editing – or any other proper job for that matter – I still take an interest in the whole editing and publishing scene. This is how I learned about Trinity Mirror Digital research about readers’ attitudes.

Your awareness of their key findings could have a profound impact on improving the effectiveness of your print and on-line publicity material, whether you are a life coach, some other professional in independent practice or otherwise involved in business development. So, Ladies and Gentlemen, I offer you ‘The Magic of 300’!

People will only read an on-line item if it is around 300 words long. On most screens this allows them to see the beginning, middle and end of the piece in a single glance and then they can judge how long it will take to read it. There are exceptions, for instance, when readers have a keen interest in the subject matter. There is no need to do a word count if you keep in mind that a screen-full is about 300.

It takes around two minutes to Read More

You Choose To Believe Your Own Beliefs. Therefore You Can Choose To Change Them.  Extract From The Life Coaching Handbook. Everything You Need To Be An Effective Life Coach, Chapter 4 Essential Coaching Beliefs.

Anthony Robbins says,

‘It is in your moments of decision that your destiny is shaped’.

One of your key moments of decision is when you decide not to believe in limiting beliefs and then help your clients to do the same.
Here is a very powerful and easy way to change old habits and beliefs. Think of a person who you consider to be very skilful in what it is that you want to be able to do. Now model that person. Stand in front of a mirror (in private) and mimic the ways they hold their body, talk, laugh, breathe, move and anything else you can think of.
Consider how they get what they want, how they stand, sit, walk, gesticulate. Think about what they do that you currently do not do. Then ask this question, ‘What would you need to believe Read More
