Have you ever wondered what your clients really want from you? It is something I have been reflecting on for a very long time, because when we know what they are we have the secret sauce to helping them even better than we already do. So welcome to “4 Secret Things Your Coaching Clients Really Want”
What I am about to share will probably change in the future, but after a lot of thought and implementation into my coaching business here are my top 4 secret things clients really want from you.
4 Secret Things Your Coaching Clients Really Want
- RESULTS. Now this shouldn’t be a secret, yet sadly it seems to be. Clients want real results by their definition of what results are! Every week I meet at least one potential new client who has had a coach, spent their money but not got their results! Yes, they need to ‘do the work’, however they also need our support with this. Ultimately the excuse of the client is not ready yet, is simply a marker of low quality coaching. Take the attitude that ‘I (the coach) will move heaven and earth to get my client the results they desire no matter what it takes’ and you are one step closer to a super successful coaching business.
- HOPE. Hope is one of the most powerful drivers on planet earth, when people have a deep level of hope they can do almost anything and usually find a new level of determination to conquer their mountains. As coaches we need to be hope givers, and have multiple different things we do consistently to give our clients real hope.
- BELIEF. Similar to hope, we need to enable people to believe deeply in themselves and our ability to get them to the results they desire. This can be achieved in many ways, however for most it is that they can see other people ahead of them getting the tangible results they most desire. Belief has to be way more than ‘you can do it’, and for it to be real needs to be experienced as ‘you are doing it’ or even better still ‘ I am doing it’. How are you integrating this into your coaching?
- COMMUNITY. Growth and change can often be lonely. For many they will end up leaving the place they started in and moving to another. This can be both mental and/or physical for clients who are getting results. Having a new community for clients to fit into as they grow makes the likelihood of results significantly higher and also gives them a new home to move to.
