Do you need a framework for coaching your clients?

Discover the powerful life coaching secrets that professional coaches use...

Just imagine for a moment you had a framework for your coaching practice? A new client comes through the door and you have a step-by-step coaching plan in place that unlocks your client's deepest wants, needs, problems and concerns.

Before reading on I just wanted to introduce myself…

Adam Sicinski

Hi, my name is Adam.

Before you read on, I think it’s important that I introduced myself. My name is Adam Sicinski. I’m a qualified life coach residing in Australia. I guess in some people’s eyes I’m also somewhat of a “professional” mind mapper; but the jury’s still out as to whether or not mind mapping is an actual profession. :)

I’ve personally created each mind map that is part of the Life Coaching bundle. Each mind map has been built upon my life coaching work with many clients over the years. In fact, every map has been meticulously pieced together in the hope that it provides you with the small nuggets of gold you need to help enhance your work as a life coach. There’s no need to read an endless amount of books when a simple reference poster provides you with a quick overview of the key areas that are of utmost importance to help move you in the right direction.

Before you invest in anything I think it’s important you have the necessary support you need. I want to let you know that I’m here to help guide along this journey. I’m just an email away and I will do my very best to provide you with the support you need to work through each self-growth map most effectively.

But before we even get that far you probably want to know what’s included in the Life Coaching bundle. Well, I guess I won’t stop you. Read on, and I hope to connect with you on the other side.

Why you won't succeed as a life coach...

So you have successfully obtained your life coaching qualifications, or maybe you simply want to begin a new career as a life coach in order to help other people achieve their goals. Either way you are in for a very rude awakening. The truth is that not many coaches succeed within this industry; and it’s not so much marketing that lets them down but rather they simply have no framework for coaching their clients. Consider for a moment:

Do you have a framework for your coaching business? A framework that helps you guide your clients through at least the first five coaching sessions? A framework that thoroughly clarifies your client's needs and unlocks their innate abilities? A framework that is structured yet flexible enough to adapt to your client's circumstances?

If the answer is "no", then please keep reading...

Your greatest coaching challenge begins...

Within the life coaching industry it's expected that a life coach will offer all clients a complimentary coaching session that helps them identify their client’s needs, while paving the way forward for future growth and development.

This is of course fantastic because the value you provide your client during this first coaching session will hopefully lay down the seeds for future coaching sessions and a fruitful professional relationship. However what many new life coaches probably don’t yet realize is that the complimentary first session can very quickly destroy their morale as-well-as their business.

My personal struggles as a life coach

I obtained my life coaching qualifications in 2005 from the Life Coaching Institute of Australia. The course was wonderful and I learned a great deal about myself, the coaching business and how to work with clients. However, the moment I stepped into the industry and started coaching clients I quickly realized that I was missing something.

I was missing a framework for coaching my clients through the first five coaching sessions. In other words, I had very little idea of what I needed to do and how I needed to conduct these first five coaching sessions most effectively. And for obvious reasons, this became a major problem.

The first few coaching sessions are of paramount importance because they help a coach form a strong working relationship with their coaching clients. However, if a coach approaches these sessions in a less than optimal way, then it's very easy to see how one can quickly lose clients prematurely.

No Coaching Framework = Poor Results

I often spent a great deal of my time networking in an attempt to find quality life coaching clients, however after their first complimentary session many of them were very reluctant to come back for a paid follow-up session. I often wondered what I was doing wrong. Was I not asking the right kinds of questions? Was I not responding to their deepest wants and needs? What was I doing specifically that was scaring these people away?

Over time, what I realized was that it wasn’t so much something I was doing, but rather something I wasn’t doing.

My life coaching sessions had no structure or framework I could use for guidance. As a result I felt as though I was "drawing at straws". Every life coaching session I would try to meet my client’s needs, however because I was so new to the coaching industry I simply didn’t yet have the necessary experience to adapt to the changing conditions and circumstances that all my client’s faced. And this is what ultimately let me down.

Developing an effective coaching framework

As a result of my frustrations I took a break from life coaching for about 18 months and dabbled in another business, which thankfully didn’t quite work out.  However, over this period of time I had a chance to reflect on my coaching business and the mistakes I had made.

What I realized was that I needed more structure and maybe even a framework for coaching that would help guide me during each one of my coaching sessions more effectively.

At the time I also began incorporating mind mapping into my work. As a result I decided to start piecing together a coaching framework that I could begin to work with during each coaching session.

At first I found it extremely difficult to piece everything together. I had good knowledge, however everything was just jumbled up and completely disorganized in my head. However, over time as I coached more clients and picked the brains of other life coaches who had been in the industry for many years, all the pieces started to fall into place. Then eventually the time and effort I put into the framework started paying off as I began to incorporate this coaching framework into my coaching practice.

Today I use this coaching framework as the basis for about 80 percent of my coaching work. Furthermore, roughly 9 out of 10 clients invest in additional sessions after receiving their initial complimentary session.

This framework like many others is of course not all-encompassing, but what it does do is it gives you enough of a structure and possible pathways that will help you guide your client in the most optimal way. I would literally feel lost without it.

Why is this framework in mind map format?

This life coaching framework is presented within a mind map format because of its simplicity and ease of use.

Each mind map is built upon a specific topic that walks you through step-by-step how to unlock a client's deepest wants, needs and concerns moving through the first three to five coaching sessions. You can use these maps as effective reference tools to structure your coaching sessions.

Here are the key advantages that result from using a mind map as a reference tool on a particular topic area:

  • Provides you with a clear “big picture” overview of the topic.
  • Outlines key subject areas, allowing for an analysis of detailed information.
  • Provides a learning platform that is easy to reference, use and recall.
  • Improves your capacity to remember related chunks of information.
  • Helps unlock hidden understandings within information chunks, encouraging greater insights.
  • Helps improve imagination and the capacity for creative association.
  • Enhances levels of concentration while also stimulating comparison thinking.

Below, Tony Buzan (the inventor of mind maps) discusses the value of using mind maps to help maximize the power of your brain.

    Of all the resources I have invested in during my journey, this is absolutely the best investment of all, and the maps are so affordable. I print them out, study them and work on them with clients.

    In addition Adam writes great articles on various topics connected to the maps. Adam is all about service all the time. And he is so present to all his customers. I can recommend his resources with all my heart.

    I bought those mind maps from IQmatrix and what a blessing. I used this incredible resource to create content for my trainings, and shared some good ideas with some friends. As a NLP Trainer, sometimes I need some topics to fill my trainings, and I found with these incredible maps all the knowledge available in any topics (especially in the field of personal development).

    What you have created is of tremendous value to me and the clients I serve. Both youth and adults can easily grasp the empowering insights that your maps provide.

    It is a joy to hear clients express that what you’ve captured on your maps is either exactly what they are seeking to accomplish or provides a specific action path for their next steps.

    I recently worked with our 8 year old granddaughter in Madison, WI and discovered how very usable and productive your maps are with her age group. Just as useful with a set of 17 year old twin sisters with whom I’m also using your work. I appreciate the amount of value you continuously provide us with as a lifetime member. May you experience the joyous energies you are sending out into the world in spades.
