50 Trials in 50 Days
The following is an exercise from FirstFiftyClients.com.
When you’re ready to do LOTS of trial sessions, to share the value of coaching with people, you’ll need people! This [exercise] will help you develop your lists of people to approach. And, it will help you decide which approach to use for different groups of people. When calling, it helps to do at least 10 in a row so you generate momentum.
Now, write down anyone you can think of who even comes close to the following criteria.
Write down how you will invite each list of people to do a session. For example, with people you feel very connected to, you might be excited to call them straight away, and chat on the phone or arrange lunch.
List A: Anyone who might really enjoy having a coach for 1-6 months (e.g. they read self-help books, attend courses, or are generally willing to take input).
List B: Anyone who might enjoy a quick one off session to see what coaching is all about.
List C: Anyone who you know has a challenge, and you feel you would like to contribute to.
List D: Anyone you would simply love to work with/coach.
List E: Anyone who might know of someone who might be interested in a coaching session.
OK – I think you get the picture. If everyone you know is not on one of these lists, then go back and put them on one of these lists.
