Questions about Coach with Clarity
What if I’m new to coaching? Will this help me?
Absolutely! In Coach with Clarity, you’ll learn fundamental coaching skills that you can use to confidently serve your clients. You’ll also have access to business-building strategies to help you take those first steps, with a supportive community behind you.
What if I’ve been a coach for a while? Will this help me?
Yes, it will! The beauty of Coach with Clarity is that it’s comprehensive and multi-layered. Experienced coaches will benefit from observing and participating in the live calls. Monthly guest experts bring new, inspired approaches to the art and business of coaching. Plus, you’ll get targeted feedback directly from Lee and her team in the Facebook community.
I’m already so busy. How much time will I need to invest in this training?
Coach with Clarity is completely self paced, so you can make it fit into your schedule.
To get the most out of the membership, plan to set aside at least 2-3 hours per week to attend training calls, participate in the Facebook group, and implement what you’re learning in your own business. Since Coach with Clarity® focuses on improving your skills as a coach, you’ll be able to quickly put what you’re learning to work in your own business.
I have my ACC/PCC/MCC through ICF. Can I get CCEs through Coach with Clarity?
Yes, you can! As of January 2020, Coach with Clarity is an ICF-accredited continuing coach education provider. You can earn up to 27 Core Competency and 12 Resource Development CCEs each year.
Hot Seat Coaching Calls and Q&A Sessions are approved for Core Competency credit. You must attend the session live and submit a CCE Request Form in order to receive CCE credit.
The Guest Expert Training Sessions are approved for Resource Development credit. You may attend live or watch the replay, and submit the CCE Request Form in order to receive CCE credit.

I have my BCC through CCE. Can I get CCEs through Coach with Clarity?
Yes, you likely can. CCE no longer accredits continuing coach education programs. Instead, they require the credential holder to ensure that the training is in line with one of the six BCC competency areas. The six areas are:
- Screening and orientation in coaching
- Fundamental coaching skills
- Assessments in coaching
- Coaching approaches for individuals
- Coaching approaches for businesses and organizations
- Ethical and professional practice in coaching
Hot Seat Coaching Sessions and Q&A Calls address Fundamental Coaching Skills and Coaching Approaches for Individuals, and are likely eligible as training hours.
The topics of the Guest Expert Training Sessions vary, and may or may not meet one of the six competency areas based on that month's content.

How is the Coach with Clarity content delivered?
Coach with Clarity provides a hybrid approach to content delivery with a mix of live, recorded, and downloadable content.
The hot seat coaching calls and the business Q&A sessions will always be conducted live, with recordings for members who can’t attend live. The co-working sessions are also conducted live, but will not be recorded as there is no content being delivered. Most trainings will be live, though there may be some that are pre-recorded.
All members will access content through the Coach with Clarity membership portal. In this private portal, you’ll be able to access all session recordings and downloadable materials (the Coach with Clarity Tool Kit®, training handouts, etc.).
You’ll also get access to the private Coach with Clarity Facebook group for community interaction.
How do the hot seats work?
Every month, members will have the opportunity to apply for hot seat coaching. Lee will choose at least two members to receive coaching during each hot seat call, and they will be selected based on their desired coaching topic and its relevance for the entire membership.
Members who are not on the hot seat are encouraged to attend and observe the hot seat calls, as Lee will also review the techniques she uses in her coaching.
How do I access the live calls?
You will receive a Zoom link to access the calls, which will be emailed to you and posted in the Facebook group. If you’ve never used Zoom before, it’s incredibly easy, but you’ll need to download the software in advance.
What if I can’t make the live calls?
Not a problem! Every call is recorded, and you’ll be able to access the replays in your membership portal..
What types of results can I expect?
Your success is highly dependent upon your level of involvement and how you apply the skills and strategies in your business and your life. You have to do the work. Quite simply… you get out of it what you put into it.
Lee and her team commit to showing up for you fully at every session and in the Facebook group. We are here for you every step of the way.
There are several success stories… one founding member landed a regular client within the first six weeks of the membership. Another was featured in a nationally-recognized blog post that gets millions of views a year.
Can I still access the content if I cancel my membership?
After the last day of your membership, you will not be able to access the Coach with Clarity content in your membership portal and you will be removed from the private Facebook group.
You’ll still have access to any materials you’ve already downloaded from the portal (for example, the Coach with Clarity Tool Kit).
Is there a refund policy?
Due to the nature of digital products and the value of the downloadable content you have access to when you join, there are no refunds. If you have questions about the membership, please reach out at firstname.lastname@example.org before you join.
Why is there a three month minimum for the monthly membership rate?
Becoming a successful, transformational coach does not happen overnight. It requires a consistent investment of time and energy to develop your skills, to build your business, and to embrace your identity as a coach.
Lee and her team want you to succeed, and they commit to showing up fully and giving you the tools and support you need to be a success. But you have to commit to yourself too – which is why there’s a three month minimum.
Questions about Coaching
What is coaching?
My coaching is informed by years of experience as a clinical social worker and mindfulness-oriented therapist with a specialization in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). I also utilize my training in CORE Energy Coaching, my certification from the International Coach Federation, and my personal experience in both creating and recreating businesses, as the founder of my own business and as a board member in my husband’s periodontal practice.
Long story short: I have both the professional training and the practical experience to meet you where you’re at and get you where you want to go.
Why do I need a coach?
But do you want a coach? Yes you do.
Because while you can make it happen on your own, working with a coach can massively accelerate your progress, drawing out your expertise so you’re in a better position to make decisions and take action in your business. Working with a coach means that you’re going to get where you want to go faster, with less wasted time and energy, and more meaning and fulfillment.
Simply put: a coach is a catalyst for success.
What’s the difference between coaching and therapy?
Therapists are uniquely trained to guide people from a place of distress and dysfunction back to normal functioning. Coaches generally start with people who are already at their baseline and help them reach optimal function.
How much does coaching cost?

I accept a limited number of private clients for a six-month coaching engagement. Private coaching starts at $8,500 and includes a launch session, the Energy Leadership Index (ELI) assessment and debrief session, 11 90-minute sessions, spot coaching (getting on the phone for 15-20 minutes to hash out a pressing issue), and access between sessions via email, text, and Voxer.
For clients with a targeted need not requiring extended coaching, I offer a half-day client intensive with two weeks of email/text/Voxer support for $1,897. This is perfect if you’re looking to kickstart a specific program or develop a marketing strategy.
