Master CoachAccountable and become the best dang coach you can be. Also, news.

The Guide

The yellow sticker ain’t lying, folks.

Just released, hot-off-the-press and ripe for consumption: “CoachAccountable’s Poignant Guide to coaching with CoachAccountable”.

CoachAccountable does wonders for structuring coaching relationships, but it takes a bit of experimentation to get into a style that has the tools really work for you.

Until now.

This guide takes the guesswork out of how to set things up for you and the people you coach.  It is designed to be a light but super-useful read, a bit cheeky at times but serious about the subject.  It is not comprehensive documentation of the software and its features, as that would be boring.  Rather it a series of discussions focused on the various benefits that CoachAccountable provides, centered around structural topics that arise over the course of coaching relationships.  Readers are invited to jump around to only those topics that are of interest.

Even if you don’t ever end up using CoachAccountable, the guide holds a lot of ideas and practices that you can apply immediately to your own coaching practice.

  1. Excellent guide John with some great tips to encourage my clients to take action.
    I like the idea of making 5 minute slots available (and encouraging clients to book rather than interrupt) for ad hoc support.

    I have a couple of clients who are not following through on their actions (and metrics), but the pressure builds with each successive ‘reminder’ – I call it my ‘auto-nag’ system (even using it for myself as a client of my own to get things done) and because it’s visible with the metrics far better than the old todo list I was using.

    Happy Thanksgiving.

    I’ve found both the Coach and Client Guides to be a quick and fun go to resource that adds to the overall CA experience!
