Does anyone do group coaching?

Started by Will Ratliff. Last reply by Susie Albert Miller, MA, MDiv yesterday. 10 Replies

This question isn't about speaking, but I know many of you do coaching as well so I thought I would ask. I've been approached by a former boss of the college I work for to do some group coaching for some of her current staff. She's used me before…Continue

Congrats Jared!!

Comment by Don Roulo on May 20, 2013 at 6:19pm

This Wednesday night I will be speaking at our church service.  Always fun to do that.  Church is family and it is very personal and relaxed.

I believe the title of the message will be, "Work Is Not A Four Letter Word."  I will be hitting on work is a gift, not a curse...and work is our way of worshipping God - spirit, soul and body.

It is streamed live if anyone is interested at www.ihavenewlife.com. I will get a link of the recorded version.  I am up for any input.  It is a church service, so it is not quite the same as speaking to a secular group.  Many similarities, but just enough different.

Almost forgot...I was informed today as a confirmation I will be speaking in January of 2014 as the keynote speaker for the Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration in our county.  Usually about 300-350 people at this luncheon.  Many community leaders and a few local 'dignitaries.'  I already know what I am speaking on.  It will be fun and I am looking for some great exposure to open up doors to other events.

Jared...congrats on the first speaking gig today!  Sometimes lurking behind the scene and gaining knowledge is a great thing to do...for a while.  Then its time to put things out like you just did.

Speaking is one of those things that can always be tweaked.  Not picked apart, but always room to improve.

Again, congrats!

So stoked! I didn't mention on here before but I had my first speaking event today! I personally think it went pretty we, but I still have a long ways to go of course. 

Going to be editing the video and I'll post a link here for discussion soon. Thanks for all the tips you guys give constantly. I haven't been very vocal on here as of late, but I do read the emails that come in and wanted to thank you all for your discussions.

Connie, this weekend was the first time I used it and I had none of those issue's. Having it made a huge difference. I sold $60 in cash and the rest were credit cards. 

Karen, my iPad is connected to my cell phone plan, so no need for wifi. I haven't experienced bad reception yet, I'll report back if I do.

Square works well for me even when there is no WiFi...it's just a little slower depending on the speed of your cell phone network.

Comment by Dr. David W. Powers on May 20, 2013 at 9:29am

Me too. And some of the convention centers where I go don't have wi-fi and I also can't get a good signal on my cell there. 21st century anyone?

Comment by Karen Putz on May 20, 2013 at 8:54am

I've starting using Square as well-- my only frustration so far is in places without wifi. Are there other options for this?

Comment by Connie Pheiff on May 20, 2013 at 6:59am

Let me know how you like the square. I have been hearing some negatives such as it is not completely secure and the square does not provide you with the users contact information to follow up with. Something that is important to all of us.

Kimanzi, VERY cool that you were speaking in DC - it was fun to follow your pictures on social media! Thanks for the tip on the Square (free if you go to square.com and order one off their site).
