Using your 10 x 10 matrix as a guide, plan your coaching program, using the following steps:
1) Determine an optimal length for your program. The rule of thumb for this is: how many hours would it take to teach someone your system at the rate of one hour per week, with home work or action steps to help them implement, plus a few hours.
So..if you could see teaching someone your system or method in 10 hours – add a couple, and then convert that to weeks –
So..10 hours = a 12 or 13 week coaching program.
I highly recommend keeping your first coaching program less than 6 months long – 3 months (12 – 12 weeks) is great, 6 weeks works well if you don’t have a lot to teach yet.
2) Once you have determined the length, then use your 10 x 10 matrix to create a 10 week outline of what you would teach each week.
Once that is completed, add an introductory week, plus a summary week, and that will give you 12 weeks.
3) Decide which supplemental materials or methods you will use in the delivery of your coaching program – for example, supplementary books, mp3s, blog posts, forum involvement, etc.
4) Put all of this into one document – so that at a glance you can see the different parts of your coaching program.
This is your coaching program master plan –
As you know, I’m keeping these coaching lessons concise – and frankly on this topic – creating your coaching program – I could probably teach the entire 60 days on just this topic! But it’s just one part of building your business, so I’m keeping these lessons concise. But if you want more depth on creating your coaching programthan you are getting here . . . I recommend my coaching program home study course – it’s over 17 hours of in – depth coaching program, and of course I’m partial – but it’s worth every penny:
