Here's a sample of some of the focus areas coaches have been identifying for group coaching:
- work-life balance issues,
- new entrepreneurs,
- new managers in the onboarding process,
- professionals at different stages of career transition,
- group coaching for new dads, new moms, college students, financial professionals, nursing and health care professionals, retirees...
The list does go on and on.
In identifying your group coaching area, or possibilities, consider the following questions:
- Who would I like to be offering this program to?
- What topics/themes/questions are really important for them?
- The biggest question they want answered is?
- The resources they are looking for are?
- The type of support they want is....
- What do I know aout the needs of this group already?
- How can I find out more?
- What other programs exist to support them (group coaching, individual coaching, other training programs etc)?
- Who else is doing work in this area? How is what I want to offer similiar? Different?
- To move my ideas into action this week, I will....
I hope that these questions will provoke some of your thoughts.
What are you going to focus on?
Have a terrific week!
