Based on the success of the two recent Steve Chandler Coaching Prosperity Schools held in Phoenix I am opening a new school that begins June 26. Like the last schools, this school will admit only nine coaches. And like the other two, it will fill quickly. (And you can also be a consultant, public speaker or counselor to apply....)
This is a school for building a prosperous practice. How to get more clients, how to get bigger and better clients, how to expand services for existing clients, how to increase fees without losing business, how to manage time and resources so your practice can be stress-free with plenty of time off....etc.
We have had coaches and consultants from England, North Carolina, California, Minnesota, Colorado, Ohio, Washington DC and all over the globe in the first schools....and they all participated in the rigorous six month accountability portion of the school.
Coaches are thriving in this recession because they are needed more than ever. Clients are finally serious about getting a coach and making their lives and their careers WORK. Our vacation from history is over. People know it's time to get back in the game.
In the past, people had a harder time committing to getting a coach. Not now. Now people see that this global competition is for real. Their only true financial security is inside themselves...their own skills and effectiveness. No more bubbles to ride or debt to run up. Get good or get out. Step up and play. People want coaching more than ever.
This school will fill up very quickly....the total fee is $9,000, but a $3,000 deposit will hold your place with the rest paid out over time. You get two very intense LIVE full day practice-building sessions June 26 and 27 and two more at the end of the six months. We focus, in the weekly accountability program for the six months between, on maximizing your coaching income, client acquisition and prosperity.
COACHES LEARN TO BUILD GREAT PRACTICES........
A word on the Coaches Prosperity School:
As a coach, it has been difficult to find a truly genuine and predictable approach to selling my services. I’ve maintained a 6-figure practice the past few years, but, until Steve’s course in Coaching Prosperity, the genuine arrival of new clients has been a mystery to me.
I spent hours of time and thousands of dollars to “GET CLIENTS NOW,” and learn the latest and greatest from all the books, marketing boot camps, and seminars only to find more spins on that ancient and inauthentic practice of Guerilla Marketing. I’m not against these techniques, they have produced great results for my own companies and my clients, but, coaching is a bit different.
Great coaches lose power when they fake it or try to “play the odds” with all the flyers, brochures, advertisements, and tricks. It’s not carpet cleaning we are selling. We’re not selling a piece of furniture, or changing appearances; we are changing lives.
THANK YOU for your training and your guidance during the first 2 days of the school. You have helped me establish a truly authentic and predictable approach to filling my practice. When I applied just two things you shared on the FIRST DAY of the Coaching School - it brought in $9,000 in new business in less than 5 days…and the referrals continue to show up.

I'm a successful coach, so I've been busy with lots of clients for years. Yet I've never felt like I was close to declaring a BINGO...hold your cards...this business is full!!!
I attended Steve's Coaching Prosperity School about five weeks ago. In that time, I've added six new clients and have four others likely to start soon.
The thing is, I don't have room for all four. I have room for two. By the end of this week I'll probably be full. It's crazy. I did it. Thanks Steve!"

"Steve Chandler's coaching school is the most powerful thing I have done for my business in over 10 years. My prior mid six figure income is now skyrocketing and at the same time I am enjoying more peace and calm in my daily business. I actually took off two days last week. This is how I imagined my consulting and coaching practice could be. Chandler’s six month school is both practical and magical. If you are fortunate enough to attend this class…just do it. Don’t let your reasons stop you. It would be like having a winning lottery ticket in your hand and then not scratching off the winning numbers to cash it in. I highly recommend you enroll in this class and move your business to 7 figures."

"When I heard about this weekend, I was both excited and a bit skeptical. I hold Steve in the highest regard, and at the same time I was silently like "$9K for 4 days - are you kidding?" I wasn't sure he'd even fill the class. Oops. My bad. :-) The class filled quickly, and he had to turn a lot of people away. And everyone I talked to felt it was an absolute home run.
For me, it was life changing. I very well may have received $100K in value in just two days, and everyone I talked to felt it was a home run. We'll see what happens over the next six months...I set the commitment to double my income, and the intention to increasing it by even more."
Steve holds a beautiful presence, and he is hilarious. Laughter and joy are very high vibrations, and it was a very joyful weekend. Plus, by enrolling some exceptional people in the group, the group energy fed on itself. If you do teach classes, please note that you don't have to hold all the energy yourself! For example, I love the energy of this group, and your commitment to yourselves and to each other. Much of the value of our class - and of Steve's class - comes from the energy field we create together. Then to top it off, Steve Hardison (Chandler's coach, who charges $150K/year and is one of the top coaches in the world) made a surprise appearance on Saturday afternoon, and took things up another 3-4 octaves. We went into the weekend as strangers and competitors, and we came out as spiritual family."

"The power of being in a Coaching School is truly dynamic, for all those participating. Being in one led by Steve Chandler, is priceless. Not only that, I've gained MORE in the ongoing, weekly accountability process than pretty much all the books on my shelf... COMBINED. Oh, and don't be at all surprised if you make fabulous new friendships and strike up creative new business relationships with your fellow attendees... I have!"

"Steve's impact on my life has been nothing short of life changing. He embodies empowerment, forward momentum and absolute ownership of your life and the results you are seeing. After reading everything he has published, I spent three days with him -face to face- in January of 2008. By May of the same year, I had already increased my income 10X. I am now thrilled to be a part of his Coaching Prosperity School and have, after just three weeks had (again) tremendous breakthroughs in my coaching and speaking practice. The first two days with the Coaching Prosperity Mastermind group were phenomenal, but when combined with the weekly accountability to the group and Steve's gentle leadership, I am reminded daily that all things are possible!"

"The curriculum is condensed, powerful and effective as a learning curve. The Coaches Prosperity School is exactly that, coaching for mastery and bringing each coach who enrolled to their true mastery. In the coaches school, Steve brought all the other coaches to their true compass heading. The brilliance, intimacy, energy, and life passion which were created during those two days was an awesome phenomenon to behold. The good part is that each coach has now set intentions and goals, and is taking full responsibility to double their income.
"Steve didn't just hit one out of the ballpark this time; he knocked the stadium over with this teaching! Don't hesitate or worry about finding the money - enroll in this powerful learning experience"

"Steve Chandler's Coaching School is all at once remarkable and revealing, ambitious and provocative. In the first two days of live coaching I experienced and received more useful knowledge and guidance than I have (ever) received in YEARS of attending other success and practice-building seminars -- YES! It is that profound.
The interaction among students and teacher was absolutely astonishing. Two weeks after returning from the opening workshop I created an additional $3,200 in income as a direct result of a technique I learned from Steve."

Most coaches don't know their value. They vastly underrate the impact they have on their clients' lives and businesses. And they undercharge for their services.
RAISE YOUR FEES AND WHAT HAPPENS?
What happens, then, when they raise their fees? My experience has proven that some very good, counter-intuitive things happen:
1. More clients are drawn to your practice. Paradox!
2. The quality of your clients improves. (Heaven.)
3. Your own work improves. (You wake up and rise up.)
4. Clients are more committed to getting results so they
a. Listen better.
b. Follow recommendations more enthusiastically.
c. Show up on time for sessions and rarely cancel.
d. Produce results faster.
e. Are more likely to spontaneously refer other clients.
f. Will refer people to you who are more suitable for your stronger
In my six month school for coaches we address the only thing standing in the way of stronger fees...fear of what people would think. That fear can be eliminated by learning communication skills for fee discussions. Learning and practicing.
Most coaches don't understand what they are truly worth to their clients. Even when the client reports a major financial breakthrough because of the coaching, the coach doesn't get what happened. Can you relate to that? I can!
Many coaches I know get better and better at coaching as they go along. Most would say they are twice as effective as they were two years ago. But do their fees reflect that? No. Usually their fees are the same!
Most time management challenges faced by coaches and speakers today are caused by fees that are too low. Their schedules are jammed up with small fee clients demanding their time. They can't see that larger fees would simplify their lives and sort out their schedules quickly. Their own money fears creep in and sabotage their practices.
Why REPORTING PROGRESS Works:
When you are accountable each week to report your financial progress to me (and the other eight coaches), you tend to think all that week in terms of progress and creating results. You know you're going to be reporting it, so you think more about it and how to achieve it. It becomes your creative theme.
When you have no such path of accountability you slide back into past habits. I know I do! We repeat the past. The bold and innovative part of you goes to sleep. Or rather it doesn't. Not entirely. What usually happens is that it emerges for others but not for you. You reveal it when you are coaching your clients. That's you at your best! Your most spontaneously resourceful!
Yet when it comes to your own practice, you are not accountable to anyone. So you lose energy and get repetitive. The past simply repeats itself from its own momentum.
We will change that with six months of accountability. You will enjoy being held accountable to your own potential.
I could stage a big event with a few hundred coaches in it and deliver this "information" as information. There are now hundreds of thousands of coaches ready to benefit from such a seminar. But to me it is more important that nine coaches actually get it. I choose to have nine coaches get these transformations deep down. At the cellular level. At the DNA level. Or, as jazz great Charles Mingus used to say, "Better get it in your soul."
Nine coaches will be selected (some of whom also do public speaking) to join me at this retreat where the focus will be on practice-building.
Most coaches never think beyond incremental improvement. Therefore they never get out of Groundhog Day increments, merely reliving the past each year. Rather than a fresh prosperous future, their year will always be the past revisited. There is no created future. . . just another "newer, better past." But it's still the past. This is why most incomes of good companies and private practices improve by only 10% over the previous year.
When we expand the mind to the concept of doubling our business or more, fresh ideas for breakthroughs emerge, because they have to.
Because I am limiting this to nine coaches, please move quickly to secure your place at the table. Apply for the school by sending me an email. Be ready and willing to share your total practice with us (including psychological details) and to work VERY hard toward total reinvention of how you do business.
Looking forward to hearing from you.

“Steve is a master. He’s way more than a coach and what he does is much more than coaching. He can dial in to what you are working on and provide strategic, highly leveraged next actions and support almost instantly. 10 minutes on the phone with Steve Chandler is more effective, more valuable, AND more fun than two hours with most people face-to-face.”
