    Program Description:

    Professional coaches know that coaching works but are often hard pressed to explain what makes it work. What is it that shifts in a coaching session from an awareness raising conversation to a behavior shift with long lasting results? Is our client really ready to make a change? And what role do we as coaches play in the integration and expansion of new client learning?

    Core Competencies:

    In this session we will take a deep dive into Core Competency 8 – Facilitates Client Growth. We will take a closer look and learn more about the conditions necessary for client growth, as well explore how we as coaches may help or hinder the process. You will receive 1.5 Core Competency CCEUs for attending this session.

    Program Description:

    The intention we have can make all the difference in our experience of nature. Intention on establishing a meaningful connection with a more-than-human world can be transformational for a person in times of uncertainty or individual crisis. It's a simple and powerful way to become grounded, centered and connect to your higher self for guidance.

    The science behind nature’s influence on human cognition and performance is fascinating! Everyone has heard about the Food Pyramid but who knows about the Nature Pyramid? The Nature Pyramid describes how much natural experience, what kind of experience and how often we need the experience for optimal brain function.

    The session will be interactive by adding sensory experience with nature-related objects. This workshop also includes break out rooms where participants will share their experience. Participants will learn simple practical steps to practice while in nature and how to apply them for problem solving in their life and business.

    Core Competencies:

    You will receive 1.5 Resource Development CCEUs for attending this session.

    Synopsis:

    You have a great service. You KNOW you are a great coach. And yet you just aren’t closing the sales you want (or at the price point you want). 

    If:

    • You have ever reached the end of a sales conversation and heard “I can’t afford it!”
    • You have ever lowered your prices to ‘fit in’ to what you THINK the market will pay.
    • You’re tired of constantly over-delivering and spending long hours working for a low price point.
    • You want to raise your fee, but think “people won’t pay that!”

    Then join Chris for this in-depth sales mastery training. During this training -designed specifically for coaches- you will learn:

    • How to close the sales you want at the price point you want
    • How to position your services to create maximum impact during the sales conversation
    • (and have your clients excited to say yes to working with you!)
    • The Business Model for building a successful coaching practice (and why most people have this completely upside down!)
    • Chris’s EXACT step-by-step Signature Sales System – used to close over 4 million dollars in coaching services. (You will leave the training with the exact system in place, ready to use on your very next sales call!)


    Speaker Bio:

    Sales and Mindset Expert, Chris Kenney firmly believes building a successful coaching business doesn't have to be difficult OR take a long time. Having built several businesses to multi-six figures, he took his current coaching practice to over $300K in it's very first year - without a website, blog or social media presence.

    Yes, you read that right!

    Chris knows the key to building a successful business is to focus on one thing – sales. He specializes in teaching his clients how to sell in an authentic, non-pushy, genuine way while charging more than they ever thought possible. 

    He knows when you master enrollment and have a simple step-by-step process to follow, doors open and opportunities get created beyond those you have previously dreamed of. As a Coach, you not only create more income – you also dramatically increase the results you have for your clients and your impact on the world.
