Hi - some more snippets for
you about what's happening at uklifecoaching.org.
Want to Join My Insights Panel?
I'm primarily a coach, here to help people, but that inevitably means I'm
also a business owner with a need to market my services. I'd like to do
that more effectively, and my new focus panel will be invaluable.
The need to understand the disparate
views of people was brought home to me a while ago when a website
visitor told me my photo made me look like an estate agent, and
she'd never accept coaching from someone who looked like that! Hmmm.
Brutal, but useful. Well, that photo's no longer around, and that
incident prompted me to add the "thumbs up/down" feedback
system in my newsletters. They're helpful, but limited. In addition,
every newsletter and service has survey feedback opportunities in
it, and I get quite a bit, but it's generally very positive, which
- though comforting, and great for my testimonials
page - is not an instrument for finding powerful change opportunities.
So the Focus Panel will meet that need. Here is the kind
of feedback I'm interested in:
- "That article doesn't work at all for me, because ..."
- "Why don't you ever write about ..."
- "I seldom read your newsletters because .."
- "| wouldn't refer friends to you because ..."
- "Hey - I just had a great idea - why don't you ..."
- "I saw this and thought of you. I really liked it and wondered
if you could do something similar"
- "You know, if you could make one of these, I'd buy it in
- "I have (or found) a relevant website which you could work
Get the idea? In exchange for your valuable insights,
I'll give you vouchers which you can exchange for my coaching products
and services. I'll decide what an idea's worth, but I'm a generous bloke,
and I want to keep your ideas coming, so you
can expect between £5 and £50 of vouchers
per insight, depending on its merit.
You can submit your insights whenever you have them,
or in response to the consulting emails and surveys I'll send out from
time to time. Of course, you can leave at any time, and there is no obligation
to contribute if you're too busy or have nothing much to say on a given
I'll allocate panel members on a first-come, first-served
basis. If you'd like to become a member, please reply to this email expressing
New E-Book for People with Staff at Work
If you manage staff, then chances are you have
issues. It's not easy, and it's seldom properly-taught, and the
pressures just keep coming, and you have the added joy of succeeding
through others; a role which often amounts to responsibility without
effective authority. If you harbour resentments towards your staff,
or you're run ragged because it's "quicker and easier to just
do it yourself" then you're one of the millions who could benefit
from my new E-Book.
