Thomas Leonard & Dave Buck – Full Practice For Coaches
100 Time-Tested Lessons From Coaching’s Founding Father
My name is Andrea J. Lee and as General Manager of CoachVille.com for Thomas Leonard from 2001 to 2003, it was very exciting to help deliver the Full Practice 100 Ecourse for coaches. Thomas wrote them with a fierce kind of energy, near-incandescent as he poured his decades of knowledge into the lessons with the hope and intention that coaches everywhere would benefit.
Over 3000 Students Have Built Their Coaching Practices Using These Original Lessons
Even he was surprised, he said, at the fact that more than 3000 coaches took the course, and so many hundreds reported great results. Not only in the size of their practices, but in the confidence they had in their identity as a coach, in their impact on the world, and in their ability to deliver clients outstanding value, in every coaching session.
Over time, a few of the lessons have needed updating, and I’m genuinely delighted that after weeks of work, all updates, indexing, formatting and packaging are now complete. The 100 original Thomas Leonard lessons are now available in beautiful print format for easy referencing.
All 100 Lessons Are Updated And Indexed In Two Volumes For QuickReference
It’s my hope this will make Thomas’ wisdom and pioneering spirit available to a whole new generation of coaches. And for veteran coaches, that you will choose to own a copy of the collection for the inspiration it will provide you.
In fact, if there’s anything this collection demonstrates in my opinion, it’s that there are many ways to fill a coaching practice. No one could ever apply ALL 100. But that was the point. Some practice-building methods will be better suited to your particular strengths than others. The way Thomas wrote these lessons, you’ll find it simple to choose the right ones, and somehow, lightly and easily, the way the lessons were written, apply them.
The Vision, Energy And Care Thomas Had For Coaching Lives On Through His Writing
Coaches who’ve tested the lessons in their new format and presentation agree – there is something very special that shines through the writing in this collection. There is no other voice like Thomas’ after all; he was the first to talk about coaching on Donahue. In Newsweek and Time Magazines. He founded the first coach training company and BOTH professional coach associations. This vantage point can be claimed by absolutely no one else, and vaunted as it may be, his energy is accessible – affordably even – through lessons like these.
I hope you’ll give yourself the gift of enjoying it. Perhaps almost as much as I’ve enjoyed helping make the collection available!
As I hope you’ll discover for yourself soon enough, the collection deftly and deeply covers topics and themes that start with developing a national reputation, resolving psycho blocks, avoiding client turn-offs, bonding with your network, doubling value for clients and continues all the way to…
… using assessments as marketing giveaways (including four actual assessments), exciting new formats in coaching, winning websites, program packaging, and of course, the all-important increasing of current client retention rates.
Of All 100 Proven Lessons, Which Inexpensive And Most Enjoyable Methods (For You) Will You Select To Implement First?
As you may know, one of Thomas’ central pieces of work is around the idea of attraction…instead of pushing for what you want, attracting it to you. True to form, the 100 lessons here provide a broad range of practice-building strategy and how-to that will allow you to be yourself. No forcing, striving, struggling or trying here. In his inimitable, direct, often entertaining way, I hope Thomas’ writings help you integrate that particular piece of learning most of all.
