    Description of Webinar

    Many people dream of writing a book to promote their business and expand personal recognition. A book is a great way to increase both the bottom line and enhance one’s clout, however without a well-developed strategy and specific plan of action, a book can be a huge disappointment. Increasing revenue streams, passive income and expanding recognition is favorable for any business. A book can do all these. My program helps business owners, entrepreneurs and professional coaches understand the opportunities for revenue growth and the importance of successfully broadcasting their message. 

    What you will learn:

    1. How to use a book to increase profits 
    2. Learn the elements of a book that sells
    3. Why it’s smart and savvy to promote a book you haven’t written

          Hosted by ICF Washington State

          Description of Webinar

          Are you ready to discover your natural approach to marketing to create more ease, joy and profits in your coaching business?

          In this insightful presentation, Beth A. Grant will share exactly why the marketing methods you’ve tried – such as free session methods, “launches” and webinar pitches, brown bag lunches, and many others – have left you feeling disappointed or bewildered, and what you can begin to do to create more ease, joy, and profits right away. The answers can be found in the Archetype Alignment™ Grid, a simple matrix that’s revolutionizing the coaching industry and how coaches approach marketing and sales, and will be shared in the presentation. There is a better way to create a thriving coaching business, and it all starts with understanding who you are as a marketer on the inside.

          What you will learn:

          • Gain clarity on exactly why the marketing strategies and tools you’ve used has fallen short (or how to avoid it, if you’re just starting out).
          • Discover why you may have an aversion to sales or marketing in general.
          • Learn how to discover your unique Marketing Archetype through a clear explanation of what your Natural Style and Personal Persuasion Power is.
          • Get an understanding of which marketing methods and strategies will work better for you and which of them to stop using because they were built for someone else.

              About Beth

              In February 2011, Beth A. Grant had an epiphany that would change her life forever, as well as the lives of hundreds of thousands of coaches and entrepreneurs around the world. What she discovered was a set of archetypes that answered the question, “Why do some coaches make 6- or 7-figures using a particular marketing approach, while others get no sales at all?” She called the resulting body of work The

              Archetype Alignment™ Grid. Beth is also the author of the prolific e-book The Four States of Being and is an artist, performer, songwriter, vocalist and enjoys writing about the human experience.

                Description of Webinar

                As coaches, we always hope that our clients will greet our coaching with a sigh of relief, enthusiasm, or acknowledgement that we’re on the right track together.

                However, what happens in the coaching situation when clients become irritated or confused? Or even angry that the session(s) are not going the way they would like them to go?

                In working with coaches over the last 38 years, I have seen that there are phrases that we hate to hear: “I’m not getting much value from this coaching with you,” or “I don’t think I can go any further with this coaching.”

                Is this really true? Is our coaching of no value to this person? Or, is our client experiencing the Negativity Bias, a naturally-occurring point where they have always stopped themselves in going for a goal?

                What is the Negativity Bias? What’s the relevant research about it? How can we work with clients to go past this difficult point, with ease? And by ease, I mean for the coach as well as the client!

                Recent research says that our brains haven’t changed in their structure for about a hundred thousand years. This means that we have essentially the same brains that our prehistoric ancestors did, including the instinct to check out danger before anything else.

                When you, as coach, understand and can anticipate the Negativity Bias, you can turn a difficult situation from a possible breakdown into a powerful breakthrough for your client.

                What you will learn:

                • What the Negativity Bias is and where it comes from.
                • Some strategies for interacting with clients in the moment when they are experiencing the Negativity Bias to help bring their creative thinking back on line.
                • A simple tool Coaches can use immediately (for themselves and their clients) to go past the Negativity Bias with ease.
