Do you ever get frustrated as a coach when your clients pay you for a result and are talking to you about how much they want that result, and yet they don’t follow through on what you’re asking them to do?
They pay you the money, they get strategies, they say that they want the thing, they want to make a change in their life and they want a particular outcome… but then the minute that they’re not with you, they go back to their old habits. They don’t actually follow through on the coaching, the course, the programs, the strategies that you’re giving them.
It can be super frustrating as a new coach or a strategic coach when you have clients that don’t follow through.
Have you ever experienced that?
It can be really frustrating. And you can almost tear your hair out and feel like you want to kind of helicopter parent them to get them to follow through to get the results.
Yes, your client is responsible for their results… but if they’re not following through on the strategies that you’re teaching them, they’re not going to get the results. And then they’re probably going to blame you for not coaching them better, for not helping them to get those results.
You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make it drink.
Or can you?
Sometimes you feel to blame because you’re giving them the strategies, but if they’re not following through then you feel awful about yourself, because you don’t want to take money and not give them the results.
When that happens, what can be going on is that they consciously want to get that result, but they have unconscious resistance. It’s like they’re trying to accelerate with the handbrake on.
What we need to do as coaches is first of all discover that they have some kind of unconscious resistance, they have some kind of internal handbrake that’s stopping them, and to be able to then help the client find that out. Because often they don’t know why they aren’t following through either. They’re just as frustrated with themselves as you might be.
And so, as a coach, as a supercoach that knows not just the strategies to get the results but also is skilled in mindset and inner world work, then you can ask some specific questions to start to get to the heart of what is causing that handbrake to be on, what are they afraid of if they get that result that’s causing to kind of backpedal.
Consciously they want it but somewhere inside there’s something that’s holding them back.
As a supercoach, we have the opportunity to raise up our skills, to raise up our awareness, to be able to coach our clients through those inner world blocks.
Some coaches say that clients are just uncoachable. They go, “Oh, I’ve got an uncoachable client. Yup, get rid of them, get a new one.”
But a supercoach knows that there are no uncoachable clients, there’s only unconscious resistance. There’s unconscious resistance inside that client.
So if they want to get that result and they’re putting the handbrake on internally, and they don’t even know why, then it’s your job as their coach to help them find out what’s going on and shift that resistance.
And that’s exactly some of the skills that I’m going to teach you how to do inside the SuperCoach Academy course.
If you want to find out more and go deeper into uncovering why clients don’t follow through and why some clients feel uncoachable, then jump on into the SuperCoach Society right now. I’m about to do an impromptu little masterclass on why clients don’t follow through and how to actually uncover what is that handbrake and help your client to see that as well.
Jump on into the SuperCoach Society. It’s where we marry the deep inner world mindset work and emotional work that helps them to actually follow through on the strategies that are going to get them the results.
If you want to be a supercoach and raise up your coaching skill to be able to deal with any client, then come join me in the SuperCoach Society.
See you soon.
“Having ongoing training is essential for our team and our business. It’s important to look after the people that look after others. Kylie has the experience, professionalism and knowledge to engage with our team and help them understand about human behaviour and why people do what they do. In the wellness and health industry it’s a different sales and service delivery and it’s imperative to keep on top of these understandings to perform at our best to help others. We couldn’t recommend Kylie high enough.”
“I have worked with Kylie over many years. She has helped me as a Business Mindset Coach, as a motivational speaker for my gym clients at both Vision Personal Training & now at Flow Athletic. I bring her in to train my Personal Training teams in mindset, communication and how to coach our clients better and excel in our own personal mastery as fitness leaders. At my recent Fitness Business event, my gym owner colleagues were blown away by her talk, saying she is the best speaker they have ever seen. After every event we always get rave reviews about her talks and training. I highly recommend Kylie’s work as a coach & speaker.”
“I finished the Spiritual Awakening Course yesterday and I found it truly amazing. An incredible next step after our coach training. I feel so much more enlightened and “opened-up”. It has really opened my eyes to the power of the universe and the energy flowing in each of us. I loved it – thank you.
I am feeling so lucky at the moment. So many things are just falling into my lap. I visualise it and set my intention to manifest it and it comes. Things such as getting more clients, needing help to put my business online, not knowing how to get known in my local community etc. Courses / insights / clients have just fallen into my lap at the right time.”
Of course I am still learning and growing, but the course has really helped. Thank you”
“Before I signed up with Kylie I had a busy PT business… I was exhausted and on the brink of burnout and no matter how hard I tried, I had reached a ceiling in my income that I just couldn’t break through. After completing my NLP Coaching certification, I found my true voice and the energy of my business has been completely transformed. I’ve created an online program, up-levelled my entire business and totally smashed my previous income goals. I make decisions more confidently and I can help my clients create change in their life even faster. On a personal level, NLP gave me the inner strength to leave a toxic situation and rebuild myself which lead to me discovering the love of my life! Today I am living the life that I’ve always wanted – but just hadn’t been able to put into words. I have never been this happy or this powerful. If you want to manifest the life of your dreams I would not hesitate to reach out for help from Kylie.”
I signed up with Kylie because I knew that to have a bigger effect as a PT I needed to improve my understanding of how the mind works. Through NLP Coach training I now have great coaching techniques that break through all sorts of negative behaviour patterns. I’ve noticed big improvements in all areas of my life including my own personal finances and my client retention. This has allowed me new freedom to work on scaling my business and helping even more people with less one on one time from myself. The coach training has given me the ability to fully unlock the power of your mindset and those that don’t have this skill are only tapping into a small amount of their potential.
This morning I had a kick-ass coaching session with Kylie Ryan. We’ve been working together for a couple of months, and she’s the perfect person to help me integrate the rapid transformations I go through regularly. I’d been getting this vision of my fully mature creative and entrepreneurial self. His discipline, commitment, and command of wealth was 10x what mine is now, but it wasn’t really about money for him. Our coaching sessions usually roll with me saying, “Kylie, I want to be, do, and have EVERYTHING” and Kylie helping me find the archetypes and parts that aren’t integrated and bringing them together. MAGICK HAPPENS EVERY TIME.
