Coaches who invite their clients to journal with JournalEngine™ are dramatically more equipped to help those clients achieve their greatest goals and live their deepest desires.
Don't Lose Momentum Between Calls
When you ask your clients to journal regularly, you maintain contact and are consistently focussed on their personal development in between coaching calls.
This means that there is no sliding backwards – just forward movement. The real magic of coaching, or the growth, happens in between calls. When your clients journal in between calls, you get to experience the magic right by their side.
Build Trust and Rapport Quickly
Journaling in a safe and secure online environment enables clients to share their fears, their insecurities, and their past experiences with greater ease.
Trust is built more rapidly, enabling you to move quicker and take greater strides with your clients.
Receive Access to Valuable Insight
Reading your clients’ journals gives you critical insight into their values, beliefs, behaviors, and thinking patterns.
This information is a game-changer for effective coaching and for helping your clients overcome the barriers that stand in the way of their success. This source of information is vital for deep, poignant coaching that has long-term impact.
Encourage Continuous Self-Reflection
Asking clients to journal daily encourages them to reflect on themselves and their actions regularly. The effect is an increase in attention to the role they play in their own lives and a greater sense of ownership and responsibility for their relationships, accomplishments and personal circumstances. They feel a greater sense of empowerment with every passing week.
With JournalEngine™for Coaches, you can invite your clients to write down their goals and milestones along the way, providing reminders to help them make progress towards achieving their objectives. As the Coach, you may find it surprising that recording your own journals, goals and milestones will get *you* to where you want to be too!
Deliver Faster Results
Providing your clients with a place where they can express themselves enables you to accomplish more with them in a shorter period of time.
You are covering greater ground and getting to the meat of your coaching with greater speed.
Eliminate Wasted Time
Reading your clients’ journals in between your calls with them keeps you up-to-date with their personal and professional lives on an ongoing basis.
This means that when you meet on the phone or in person for your next coaching session, you are already caught up and can jump into coaching immediately, delivering high value with each interaction, and eliminating the need to spend much of your time learning about the what’s happened since your last phone call or ‘in person’ meeting.
Realize the Extent of Your Impact and Influence
As clients document their experiences in their journals, they are also creating evidence of their evolution and growth. This is an extraordinarily powerful testimony to your impact on their success. Your comments are available for their review, and the value of your time together is tangible.
Document Their Progress
When clients journal every day for the duration of their coaching period, they are literally documenting their progress and tracking their change over time.
They can look back to the beginning of their journey and see how far they have travelled with you. Record and upload your calls with them to their courses so that they can listen back to their conversations, paying attention to their own tone, language and issues. Encourage them to read their past journals and your responses as well.
Create a Long-term Bond
Your clients’ journals live long after their coaching with you has concluded. This creates a long-term bond between you that draws them back over and over again.
They have a need to return to the story they created, and you are the holder of that story.
Support Powerful Group Coaching
When you coach a group of people at one time, you can ask all of the participants to share their journals with one another and have them spend some time reading and responding to each other’s journals.
This adds infinite value to the coaching experience and establishes an online journaling community that stays together in between each call and long after coaching is complete.
