2021: January Reset, Refresh, Reboot: Kick-start 2021 with a 90 day plan!

January’s meeting (during lockdown) was a great time of the year to press pause and focus some quality time on our businesses.  With everything else we have going on, we often get caught up in working in our businesses and struggle to see the wood for the trees. 

Our speaker Louise Gordon helped us look back at some of our resourceful discoveries from 2020 (amazing since we spent it mainly in lockdown!) as well as looking forward to where we want to be by the end of 2021. This was a really interactive session with triads in zoom break-out rooms where we had time to chat about our own businesses and identify our priorities for the next 90 days. Louise gave us some great ways in which we can hold ourselves accountable and track our progress. What a great session to start the year!

October’s Meeting: Systems in your Business

How efficient is your coaching business?

October’s session was content-rich in terms of tools and systems you can use in your coaching business to make things work more efficiently. Led by our guest speaker, Natalie-Claire Luwisha, we looked at our calendars, social media, client management and time management.

Natalie-Claire had loads of hints and tips about how to create systems that really work. She also helped us to understand how to create frameworks for your own systems: 1) plan the process 2) schedule the steps into your calendar 3) track how long it takes to complete. If you track an activity, it helps you to schedule the right amount of time for it next time – rather than assuming you might need an hour or two (which often leads to procrastination!)
