Coach Lab: November 20, 2019

November 20, 2019      

by Lauren Travis Lambrecht

Zoom Monthly Event (Virtual)

Wednesdays 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm (EST)  

December 4, 2019

As coaches, we often work 1:1 with clients, but otherwise spend a lot of time alone, in our heads, noodling possibilities, challenges, or dreams, with no dedicated outlet to process, take action or have accountability.

The Coaching Lab is a space for coaches to come together to share our ideas in a safe, non-judgmental forum. It’s a place to get feedback, input and support.  It’s a built in focus group for whatever is on your mind.

Sample topics:

  • Talk through branding or design
  • Get feedback on an article or post
  • Talk through a challenging client situation
  • Voice a fear or concern and receive peer coaching
  • Ask for recommendations on products, services or resources
  • Proof concepts for webinars, workshops or events
