Coaching Communities
Martyn Carruthers

Online Life Coaching & Community Training

Communities and community leaders have huge learning opportunities, as the values of community members can be so different. Depression is common in communities with little sense of purpose or mutual commitment, while communities with shared values usually attract healthy people.

Do you want to contribute to your community?
Do you want to accelerate personal and community development?
Do you want to make a difference in people's lives?

Unhealthy behavior is both normal and expected in dysfunctional communities!

The World is Changing

Does your community try to maintain older systems or does it adapt to change? Does your community enjoy a vibrant or stagnant economy? Do enthusiastic people enjoy happy families and meaningful work? Or does your community suffer:

  • Social problems?
  • Apathy and stagnation?
  • Depression and unemployment?
  • Missed opportunities from lack of life skills and low self-respect?

Community leadership entails complex, cooperative learned behavior. And in a rapidly changing world, the consequences of delay or error can be severe. Community coaching is a needed set of skills.

Consider offering your community a systemic coaching service, through which you can make a real difference, a positive contribution and an income. You can do a quick feasibility study at little cost. We can help you with coach training and mentor coaching.

Consider founding programs that offer behavioral, skill development, transitioning and skill generalization in real life environments for people. You can offer structure, support and strategies for relationship and daily tasks. You can coach social interactions while cultivating leaders and nurturing community relationships.

Consider offering community leadership, and offer people the skills they need to be confident leader s and organizers; such as communication, organization, teamwork and leadership skills.

Expenses and Rewards

Your expenses, if you start from your own home, can be minimal. A quiet room, appropriately decorated with comfortable chairs is enough. Later, as you build your business, you may prefer an office downtown. You will also need basic promotional aids such as business cards, a website and office stationary.

If you want coaching to become a part-time career, you can provide an evening or weekend service, or incorporate coaching into your regular employment. If you want coaching to become a full-time career, you can start small and build your business until your income justifies becoming fully self-employed.

These questions can indicate the potential success of a coaching business in your area. Consider how many people you would like to coach and for what rate. For example, if you provide coaching for 30 clients for two hours each month for $100 per hour, your gross monthly income would be around $6000.

Community Recognition

Do you want to fulfill a useful and positive role in your community? Coaching is an enjoyable career as well as a business you can take pride in. Consider how your clients will feel as they better support their families, enjoy the benefits of emerging job opportunities and to work at meaningful, well paying jobs.

If you want to go the next step to building a successful coaching practice, consider getting our Systemic Coach Training.

We do not solve social problems - that's for social workers. We are not authorities about why people have problems - that's for psychologists. Nor do we manage emotions with medication - that's medicine.
We help people manage whatever stops them solving their problems.

Do you want to enjoy emotional success and good relationships?
Do you want to help people build success and healthy relationships?
