Offered by Gina Halsted – ALC coach and women’s business coach
What: A four month tele-class program designed to help you launch your Academic Life Coaching practice. This class is for the person who wants to start their own coaching business but isn’t sure how to start or doesn’t want to do it alone. In the first five weeks you’ll develop a simple, but effective success plan that clarifies the path between where you are now and where you’d like to be in a couple of years. You’ll move into action for the next two-three months, with group check-ins and one-on-one coaching sessions strategically sprinkled to provide accountability and support, helping you keep the momentum going!
Why: For 24 weeks you’ve had the support and structure of the ALC training classes. Once the classes have ended – now what? This program will give you the tools, tips, support and accountability you’ll need to start your own ALC business. You will create a blueprint for your coaching practice and get clear on your vision, strategies and next steps to start your business. You’ll work with a coach who has helped other entrepreneurs launch their successful businesses. You’ll benefit from the community of other ALC coaches, share ideas, collaborate and know you’re not alone! You’ll get valuable new perspectives, ideas and support. And you’ll get accountability structures to help you move forward!
Here’s How we’ll do it:
Here’s the breakdown of what you’ll learn and do:

Before we begin the class you’ll have a 15 minute call with Gina to allow both of us to get clear on what you want to achieve from the class.
Week 1 – Class 1 – Set the Stage – Vision, Mission and Values
We’ll invest the time to get to know each other, design our alliance as a group, and understand the program. You’ll learn about group and laser coaching, two coaching techniques we’ll use in the program. And you’ll learn about the value of having a simple business plan and the importance of having Vision, Mission and Value statements for your business. At the end of the class we’ll have time for open Q&A about anything to do with Academic Life Coaching.
Week 2 – Class 2 – How will you measure your business?
We’ll share learning/questions/ideas about your Vision, Mission and Value statements. And you’ll learn about setting objectives for your business. We’ll have time for Q&A about any aspect of Academic Life Coaching.
Week 3 – Class 3 – How will you grow your business?
We’ll take time to review insights and learning from the development of your objectives. Then we’ll shift our sights to Strategies – which is the discussion of how you will grow your coaching business. We’ll brainstorm on various marketing ideas and techniques to stimulate your thinking about the possibilities. We’ll take any questions you might have about ALC or your plan.
Week 4 – Class 4 – What actions need to be done?

We’ll explore what’s working and what’s not and why. You’ll learn from each other and yourself. We’ll regroup, redesign actions as appropriate and celebrate, all in the interest of keeping you moving ahead!
