Resource Library General Meeting Information Contact UsMessage from Kim ClausenPresident, Denver Coach FederationTHE ROADMAP TO MANIFESTING YOUR VISIONIn the last couple of months, we have been on a journey of building our belief inourselves as coaches and creating a vision of how that would manifest itself in ourbusinesses and careers. In order to feel confident in our ability to serve others, we haveto have belief in ourselves and support that belief with a vision of success.The next step on the road map of manifesting your vision is to create a plan thatallocates your time, energy and resources purposefully toward those goals. When wehave a plan, we know what actions to take, and we feel more focused and intentional aswe move forward. This fuels our belief and propels us into action. Without a plan, we toooften spend time on activities that may feel productive but ultimately do not bringprogress. This leads to frustration and then failure.Listed below are some questions to ask yourself to determine what activities toincorporate into your plan, what your purpose is for those activities, and which will bethe best to help you achieve your goals.After you have created a plan to reach your goals, you will then prioritize youractivities. While we’d like to do them all, too often we have more ideas than hours in
  2. 2. the day. Prioritizing, planning and spending your time to get the best ROI (Return OnInvestment) is most important. This may take time to iron out. You may change,eliminate or add to your plan; however, the key is to always stay in action toward yourvision.Questions for developing your plan: What activities will I engage in to reach my business and career goals? What continuing education do I need to pursue? What is the goal for this training? How will this advance my career/business? What organizations, clubs and memberships do I want to be a part of? How do I want to participate? What is my goal for these affiliations? How can I use social networking like Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn to reach my goals? What is my purpose for social networking? How can I use blogging? What is my purpose for blogging? Am I going to send a newsletter? What will be my goal for sending a newsletter? What topics will I address? Will I host teleseminars? What is their purpose? On what topics will I teach? Which ones will be free, and which will be for a fee? Am I going to do public speaking engagements? To whom? On what topics? What will be my goal for speaking? Am I going to do workshops? On what topics? Will they be for free or for a fee? What will be the purpose? Am I going to do longer term tele-traininings or in-person seminar programs? On what topics? Am I going to create products? What products do I want to create? Will I do complimentary sessions to get new clients? When and how will I offer these sessions? What product, services or programs will I provide? Do I want to create Joint Venture and Alliance Partnerships? If so, who are some of my more strategic potential partners? What sorts of activities can we engage in together?Too often people are unclear of their vision, and how they will make that vision areality. But when they take the time to create a plan, they are pleasantly surprised athow realistic and obtainable their vision really is.Give yourself the gift of a vision for your coaching career and the plan to make ithappen. I think you too will be surprised to learn that you can indeed make your dreamsa reality.Blessings,Kim Clausenkeclausen@netzero.netDCF September Meeting: Sept 8thDate: September 8, 2011Time: 7:00PM to 9:00PM(SIGs: 6:00-7:00 PM)Location: PPA Event Center, 2105 Decautur St, Denver, CO 80211Speaker: Therese Kienast, MCC, CPCC
