Hello! I am excited to announce a year-long series (52 weeks!) which I'll be hosting here at the PlanDoTrack Blog each Friday throughout 2019. It's geared for virtual professionals (leaders, entrepeneurs and team members) as well as coaches, along with any other readers who are enjoying the Coaching Business Builder and PlanDoTrack Workbooks and Planners.
Welcome to the Annual Compendium to the Coaching Business Builder (CBB) and the PlanDoTrack (PDT) Workbook and Planners. When I launched the Coaching Business Builder Workbook and Planner in the summer of 2018, it was in response to the growing needs of coaches for a resource to focus in on their business development, AND also have a place for planning and tracking of their business results.
Since that time I have launched the PlanDoTrack Workbook and Planner – Virtual and Remote Edition, adapting it for the virtual and remote world where I have spent the better part of the last three decades, either as a remote and virtual team leader, program manager or business owner.
The Annual Compendium is a supplement to both these resources. Many professionals may opt to have an annual 52-week resource they can refer to and work through on a regular basis, rather than try to read the books cover to cover. This resource does that.
Over the next 52 weeks (one year) each Friday, I will be sharing a different theme from the CBB and PDT Workbook and Planners. The blog post will include a Focus Question for the Week, a brief description, story or research component, an activity for you to undertake AND a quote.
I’ve chosen to share this with you on Friday, knowing that for many coaches and other virtual professionals, Friday marks a brief pause in the week, and the start of the planning cycle for the next week. You will also be able to download a one or two pager each week.
The Story Behind the Story
Like most professionals and business owners, we find ourselves working around the margins of life, One.Step.At.A.Time.
In today’s creative entrepreneurial space, client work has its own ebbs and flows throughout the year. After fifteen years of being in business, I have also seen how important it is to also be creating something on the side in response to the needs of those we serve.
For many years I have run a series of group coaching initiatives, bringing together small groups or leaders or leaders for three, six- or twelve-month periods. These conversations are geared to support these professionals around their goals, by taking action on a regular basis, and gaining awareness around the belief systems and mindsets they embrace. The coaching conversation provides an important framework for accountability around the steps they want to commit to undertaking.
In today’s compressed digital world, it may seem easier to DIY - “do it yourself”. That’s where this weekly guidebook comes in. Each week has a different focus for business development, and includes a Question, a short story and, and activity suggestion and a link to the Coaching Business Builder Workbook and Planner.
The logo for the book is a multi-colored puzzle piece, with the tagline of “Putting the Pieces Together”. These pieces often emerge on an iterative basis, getting shaped as we PLAN, then DO by taking action, and finally TRACK – noticing what’s working and what’s not. With this in mind, each tip has its own icon for Plan.Do.Track.
While you can engage in the materials one week at a time, you can also undertake these prompts more quickly by following them a more frequent basis like daily.
Businesses rarely grow by themselves. Rather they are forged through experimentation, and conversation.
I hope you will consider joining me for the Coaching Business Growth Lab and/or Plan.Do.Track series of programming. More information at www.CoachingBusinessBuilder.com and www.PlanDoTrack.com.
