Jan Elfline Presents:

Reconnecting With Why You Became A Coach


This webinar is approved for 1 Core Competency and .25 Resource Development CCEU

The session starts with a bit of background

  • Why I became a coach
  • How I became a coach
  • Why I’ve stayed interested in coaching for 27 years


After that intro, we get to the important stuff: YOU

We’ll do two exercises

1- a brief question and answer discovery exercise 

2- a visual exercise about designing your work.

Both exercises will be written up and available to print in the week prior to the session.
