Episode 39: Five Lessons I’ve Learned From Running Group Programs

I learned some of these lessons the hard way, but you don't have to! I'm going to walk you through the five things that I learned, or better yet, the five things I wish I had known before I started running group programs in this week's episode.

This is the third episode of our four-part series exploring group coaching. In the past two episodes, we've looked at how you can figure out whether group coaching is the right choice for your business and what you need to consider when designing your group coaching program.

Now it's time to get personal.

I'm sharing the five lessons I've learned (some of them the hard way!) from running group programs. I hope that by sharing these honestly with you, you'll be able to skip over some of them yourself so you can start running group programs effectively from the beginning.

I'd love to know which of these lessons resonate the most with you. Find me over on Instagram (@CoachWithClarity) and let me know!

Topics covered

  • Why you shouldn't approach your group program like a course
  • The huge value you create by giving yourself and your students enough time
  • Five stages of group development you'll see in your group programs
  • How you can strategically incorporate one-on-one calls into a group program
  • The way I implemented one-on-one calls in my first group program

TRANSCRIPT

 

Well, hi there, my friend. Welcome to the Coach with Clarity podcast. My name is Lee Chaix McDonough and I am so grateful to have you joining me today for today's episode. And this is the third episode in a series of four, where we are exploring group coaching. 

So in Episode 37, we looked at whether or not a group coaching program was the right choice for you and your business. And last week in Episode 38, I welcomed learning design expert Emily Walker, who shared with us the things that we need to be considering from a learning design perspective to make sure that our group program serves our clients powerfully and helps them achieve the results that they want.
