    ICF RAC is launching its first cohort of a new Business SIG: “Grow Your Best Coaching Business” Mastermind Group

    10.5 RD CEUs

    The “Grow Your Best Coaching Business” Mastermind Group is a six-month program (starting with our first Kickoff Session on June 3 at Noon ET) designed to assist you, the evolving and experienced coach, in obtaining specific content for growing one of six different aspects of your coaching business within a collaborative community.

    This group is for you if you’ve been stuck in the same place, knocking your head against the wall, and are ready to get focused and get help with elevating your business.

    You will begin your six-month journey by identifying the FIRST growth area of your business on which to focus over the next few months. You can always change your growth area or choose to work on another one at any time.

    You'll attend monthly workshops facilitated by subject matter heroes, who will share their business experience with you and provide Q&A sessions around your specific growth area.

    The growth areas you'll pick from are the same business areas covered in Annie Franceschi’s new book, “Establish Yourself”:

    • Branding
    • Operations
    • Sales
    • Client Experience
    • Referral Relationships
    • Marketing

    Using techniques found in “Establish Yourself” and the exercises in the Activity Guide, you will learn how to expand and/or strengthen a specific area of your business, overcome the anxiety you may have wondering why things aren't working in your business, and even put the right things in place so you can effectively operate your business! (In order to participate, you will need a copy of “Establish Yourself”, plus the downloadable activity guide)

    There will be laser coaching and opportunities for peer-to-peer brainstorming and accountability. In addition, you will learn the right strategies for creating your best coaching business foundation and model.

    Each month, we’ll get together in our Remo Conference area where you can:

    • Meet and mingle with your growth peers in small groups
    • Celebrate as you reach measurable milestones through your growth exercises
    • Participate in peer coaching with your pod about what has or hasn’t worked as it relates to your business
    • Attend facilitated discussions on building out your growth areas

    In fact, here's just a sample of what we'll cover during this incredible 6-month “Grow Your Best Coaching Business” Mastermind Group:

    • Uncover your ideal client and what they want to achieve (create the right solutions that they are willing to pay to receive).
    • Convert 'tire kickers' into paying clients in two simple steps (increase your conversion rates into ka-ching on a regular basis).
    • Start ‘selling’ using your sleaze-free S.A.L.E.S. process (walk into any sales conversation with confidence whether the end result is a YES or NO).
    • Create a referral statement for clients and potential partners to use (so they can send the right people to you).

    ... and much, MUCH More!

    You don't want to miss this breakthrough Mastermind Group in which you will finally learn the exact steps you need to take to strengthen and/or expand your Branding, Operations, Sales, Client Experience, Referral Relationships, or Marketing in order to grow your business.

    Your Business SIG Mastermind Co-Facilitators

    Kim Gray, ACC, CMAC | Marketing Monsters Coach

    When I opened the doors to my online business, I was confident that I could make it work. Only I found out that I had no clue how to build relationships online. I also discovered that I was scared to death of networking locally. That’s when the Introvert showed up. It took a few years for me to build up my confidence and credibility to stand out online. Local networking was another monster, but with more time and a few trial-and-error strategies, things changed.

    Marketing and networking strategies differ for marketing-shy coaches. Finding the right balance based on your needs and personality style is key. Then by creating a consistent schedule you can live with will enhance your online credibility and reach over time.

    Kelli Hendrickson, ScD, ACC | Pathmakers Coaching

    Kelli is a Career and Leadership Coach helping women with STEM PhDs create more Success, Time, Energy and Meaning in their careers.  Kelli’s path to coaching began as a Research Engineer at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. It was in her role as a mentor and advisor that she noticed a need and desire for coaching for professional growth in her colleagues and students and began her coaching journey in 2019. 

    She earned her Certified Professional Coach designation from the Transformation Edge Business Coach Institute.   She currently holds dual positions as Research Engineer at MIT in the Department of Mechanical Engineering and Associate Research Professor at UNC-Chapel Hill in the Carolina Center for Interdisciplinary Applied Mathematics. 

    Alessia Nizzola, CPC

    I have recently relocated in the area from Italy, where I studied Business Administration and Foreign Languages. I worked in an international banking group for more than 20 years, as a Relationship Manager for individuals and companies, where I learned the importance of trust in connections, direct communication and thought-provoking questions while deeply listening to my customer’s dreams for their future. 

    Coaching was love at first sight, in 2018. I started my training and became Certified Professional Coach with International Coach Academy, loving every step of my learning. Now I’m giving birth to my own business, full of wonder for what the life will bring to me, now and here.

    Our next 5-Step Challenge opens in December 2022; our next Business SIG cohort starts January 2023.

    Cutting Edge Conversation: What Do You Do When Your Client Triggers You? with Mindy Schrager

    December 9, 2022 |
    4:30pm ET


    To be in integrity and demonstrate excellence in collaboration with our clients, we need to hold a clear space during our coaching sessions.

    Clients who trigger us can impact our ability to be present. The same is true if we can't understand their perspective or have advice running through our minds.

    Join this discussion and share ways that you hold a clean coaching space even when triggered by your clients.


    Mindy is an ICF PCC credentialed coach and systemic facilitator whose passion for transformational work grew out of her career success in building strong, well balanced teams, combined with a very powerful personal discovery journey. During her journey, she attended Debbie Ford’s life-changing Shadow Process workshop, as a first step in becoming an Integrative Coach. At the same time, she was introduced to the work of Systemic Family and Organizational Constellations as well as Voice Dialogue. All are focused on uncovering hidden patterns in the life and business experiences and the family lineage of her clients. Mindy loves to shine the light on hidden patterns and the root cause of dysfunction and help her clients create new pathways for growth. Connect with Mindy at info@systemsofchange.com.
