Bringing My Coaching Business To The Next Level

CPC Life CoachAs you well know, if you’re a regular visitor of this blog, my posts are all about helping you with topics dealing with personal development.

So, forgive me today, If I gear this post a little be about what’s going on with me and my coaching, but in the end, really, you’ll be the ones who will benefit even more on this blog in the coming months and years.

So, here is what I wanted to tell you today!

Announcing…

I’m very excited to announce that I will be a CPC Coach in about 2 weeks from now. While I’ve helped some people  for about 5 years, it was time for me to bring my coaching business to a new level, and for that, I think that being a Certified Professional Coach was the best next natural step to take.

Because of this incredible knock out training I’m going through right now, I’m getting much more confidence in my own craft, as well as more credibility for my future clients. What’s not to love!

Besides that, I’m learning some cool techniques that will help me to work as a true professional knowing exactly what to do with new clients and how to handle the whole situation step by step from beginning to finish.

This is a wonderful time for me, because it’s doing what I truly love and know I’m good at. I know this is going to be a significant year that’s so well over due.

On this post, I also wanted to report something very apropos that has a direct relation with my coaching as well.

A very dear client of mine, which I have been helping for about a year now, has just got the job he wanted, for quite some time now. And because not only he applied changes in his own life, his wife is changing hers for the best as well. She just got promoted after she’s been practicing positive thinking in a place she originally hated.

I was truly honored with the fact that my client told me that my coaching was the cause of those positive changes for him and his wife.

WooHoo! There isn’t anything better than that for me right now!

Here is a testimonial he had written a couple of months or so ago, before he got that job. I’m expecting many more like that in the near future (smile).

Sylviane Nuccio is an effective coach. She is a good listener. She developed my trust in her by encouraging open conversation where we can both share our personal experiences or difficult times we went through. She is full of resources and insight.

She often talks about her own experiences and what she learned from them. She is reliable and not distant. She is very patient. She asks open-ended questions to get me to open up as much as possible. We even explored events that happened in my childhood to uncover the realities of my present struggles. We discussed my family structure, how I grew up, and the influential figures in my early life.

She asks good follow-up questions to demonstrate genuine interest. She provided me with constructive feedback. She considered and discussed additional ways for me to get advice and information I need to make improvements and reach new heights.

She constantly gives me tools and information that can help me change for the better.

Sylviane believes in understanding the root cause of the problem before taking action. She is relentless in her search for the truth about why I am not reaching my goals and fulfilling my dreams.

She taught me so much about personal development and how the subconscious mind works. She gave me some valuable materials to read and was always there to explain difficult topics so I can have a better understanding of them. She calls me to action and encourages me to do something concrete and tangible that can lead to a better life for me and for those around me.

Sylviane cares and this to me is her most valuable quality.

I’m not showing you this to boast, though.  I ‘m showing  you this, because I want you to know that with the right mind set good things will start happening to you. Since I kind of apply my own medicine it’s also happening for me too.

Frankly, all in all, I’ve been a failure myself for the better part of life, even though if I’d tell you all the things I’ve done you would believe otherwise. But I know better. That’s why I’m saying that I’m well over due. And that why I know that a change of mind and heart can and will be life changing.

A Personal Development Book for 2015

Another project that will most likely see the light of day next year (don’t want to kid myself in thinking it’s going to happen this year,with all that’s going on) is my personal development book. This is going to be a book that will go deep at the roots of people’s issues and hopefully help them learn how they can change their mind over and transform their life.

Other Good News on the Horizon

I’m not even quite done with my professional coaching course, yet, that already I’m getting contacted by both potential clients  and even companies that are in the business of helping coaches to get more clients. I’m so happy and excited that I can hardly contain myself.

I’ve decided to join a toastmaster club in my area to practice public speaking, because I have a huge specific goal that I’ve been visualizing for a little while, which involves public speaking. Now, don’t worry when that happens, you’ll know it!

While I’ve done acting on stage, which thank goodness is going to help tremendously, I’ve never done what we call public speaking, so joining a toastmaster group is the best thing I can do at this point.

Fulfilling my BIG WHY

Do you have a WHY? If you don’t, you should.

No.  You MUST.

But what is a WHY? You might ask.

What life coaches call “your why” is THE very reason, the strongest of all reasons,why you want to succeed.

I won’t tell you what my why is, I’ll keep that for my book, because it’s a bit too personal for a blog post, but it’s what has been pushing me to do what I’m doing and helped me persist with my own personal development for so long.

If you don’t have a strong WHY, it will take you much longer to start living a life by design, if this is what you want. I know this is what I want. I want to live the life that I want, and not just let life happen to me.

Life doesn’t have to happen to you. Life can be wonderful.

A Question for You

So, now that we are about to start a new era on this blog (so to speak), my question to you is what topics would you like me to write about in the coming weeks and months?

Of course it needs to stay within the topic of personal development, but I’d like to know what you’d like to learn more about.

I will also try to have more guest posts from personal development bloggers on this blog as well, to give you some fresh air.

Please, help me know what you would want to read more about by participating in this little survey. Please, add any other option that may not be there in your comment below.

To your success!

    Congratulations Sylviane and I know you’re so excited about this new chapter in your life. I know that helping people is so rewarding and getting testimonials like that just makes you really know that you have that gift.

    I have no doubt that we’re going to see bigger things for you as the year progresses and goes over into 2015.

    As you know I worked with a spiritual life coach several years ago and it really helped me at that time with my confidence level. I was brand new to this industry and I was so overwhelmed and immediately started doubting myself that I could do any of this. It was just so foreign to me and so over my head. Look at me now! She really helped me in that respect so I have no doubt you’ll have a lot more great testimonials coming your way soon.

    As far as what to write about in the future! Gosh I don’t know, I just enjoy what you put out there. I’m sure as you continue with this journey of yours there will be plenty more topics that will pop into your head too. Hope others are able to give you more suggestions.

    I’m so happy for you and hope you’re enjoying your week. See you soon.

      Hi Adrienne,

      You are a confirmation that coaching does work, as my teacher was telling me just last night. He was saying, “why is the coaching business is a growing business? Because coaching works.” Indeed it does. It’s because someone coached me for the better part of 2006 that my life took a 180° turn. If I look at myself then and now, it’s not the same person, really.

      I’m glad your coach helped you discover that you could do it, Adrienne. She was right, wasn’t she?

      I did this little survey to see what people what to see on this blog, but maybe what I’ve been doing so far wasn’t that bad. Yes, more and more delicious topics will most probably appear.

      Thanks for coming by and have an excellent and productive day!

    Hey Sylviane!!

    Just wanted to say congratulations on everything!! It’s so wonderful to hear your story of what you’ve been up to to improve your coaching practice. I really love to hear stories of personal growth and learning! Woohoo!

    I’m also a member of Toastmasters — been with them since March of 2011 — and it has made the world of difference!

    Personally, I love reading about how to get over fear and the mental blocks that hold you back from pursuing your dreams!

    I’m really looking forward to reading your posts!

    • Sylviane Nuccio says:

      Hi Jennifer,

      Thank you so much and so nice to see you here again.

      I’m so happy to learn that you love toastmasters. I should have started this years ago, but that never happened. I guess now it’s the time.

      Thank you for letting me know what you want to read about. We’ll do.

      Have a wonderful day!

    Hi Sylviane,

    Congratulations and celebrations 🙂

    Yes, you surely must be so excited with the new achievements in your life, and you certainly deserve it for the efforts you put into your work. I liked that little write up, which goes to show your coach is very happy with you, and all of us can’t wait for you to make it now – you actually already are for us, just the certification as they call it.

    New book – my goodness! So that would be something more you’d be working for, great going! Just makes me wonder how you manage to accomplish so much, especially with so many blogs and all that goes with it. Wishing you all the very best, and I took the little survey too 🙂

    Thanks for sharing. Have a nice week ahead 🙂

      Hi Harleena,

      Thank you an thanks for taking the survey. Actually, that idea I got it from you, my dear 🙂 I though, how in the world didn’t I think of it before?

      Indeed, I’m busy, but somehow I managed to squeeze it all. Like I said, the book won’t be ready before sometime next year, because I wouldn’t be able to complete this that fast. No way 🙂

      Thank you for coming and for you wishes.

    Hello Ms. Sylviane

    Wow Congratulations are in order.
    This is definitely another chapter of your life.

    I can tell you, that I have been a Certified Life Coach and a Master Spirit Life Coach for about 5 and a half years. It is so rewarding when you can help a client success, by using coaching techniques.

    I, too am a member of Toastermaster for 4 years. My Coaching Professor recommended all the students to join. I am currently at the bronze level and loving it.

    Wow, so proud of you

    Congratulations Sylviane!

    I would be on cloud nine too especially after kind words like that from a client. I’m so excited for you and this journey you’re on. It sounds like you have some great things in store and I can’t wait to read your book!

    I have to say the advice you give about changing our mindset is so true. I’ve been experimenting myself and I’ve been seeing some changes too and it’s a great feeling!

    I wish you all the best and many many more blessings! It sounds like you’re going to have an awesome 2014!

    Happy Wednesday Sylviane! Have a great night.

      Hi Corina,

      Thank you so much for your visit and wishing me well. Very much appreciated.

      I know I have to get back to this book very soon and make it happen for next years. The book is already started, but I had stopped because of time issues, but now it’s time. Maybe it wasn’t the right time until now.

  • Carolyn Nicander MohrTwitter: wonderoftech says:

    Hi Sylviane, Woo Hoo! Congratulations on your success!!! I’m not surprised, my friend, it was only a matter of time before you were going to soar. Thank you very much for sharing your story of successes with us. It’s not boasting at all, you’re keeping us posted on what’s going on in your life.

    I strongly disagree with one thing you said, Sylviane. You said you were a failure for most of your life. I disagree. You were not a failure, you experienced failure. Really, failure is the best teacher. We don’t forget the lessons of failure, they are ingrained in us. Not only that failure guides us to success.

    So I have a very strong suspicion that your experiencing failure is a direct cause of your wonderful success.

    Congratulations on both your successes and your failures, Sylviane!

    • Sylviane Nuccio says:

      Hi Carolyn,

      Thank you so much for saying that I wasn’t a failure 🙂 Yes, I know you’re right, we’re not failure, we experience failures, but the feelings and the way society likes to put us in compartments makes us believe that we are failures.

      On top of that you have the “well intentioned” people, who emphasis that about you, if you know what I mean 🙂

      Thank you so much for coming by and for very valuable input.

    Hi Sylviane,

    Congratulations on all the success and all the best for your upcoming projects as well. I would love to see some posts around self-talk and preferably some ready to do, well designed self-talks that people can just print and start using (as a resource) if that is within scope of your blog.

    Also, speaking of Toastmasters, you know I’ve written many times in multiple posts about that. I am a Toastmaster and I highly encourage you to be one! It will definitely help 🙂

    Have a terrific Thursday!

    Kumar

      Thank you so much for your suggestion. It really helps and gives me ideas. We’ll do!

    Hi Sylviane,
    Its an interesting take you have shared on your coaching business. I am new to your blog but since it talks about personal development, I would not like to miss a bit of inspiration.

    If you ask me, I would love to see more of topics that would center around setting goals and achieving them 😀

    Hats off to you Sylviane! 🙂
    You’ve been working hard to improve yourself and to add value to others. In all your excitement, remember to schedule your time, as you can easily become overwhelmed with commitments.

    You’ve never been a failure! You’ve continued to become who you are today.
    Your perception of yourself is so important. Rephrase those words to “I’ve been learning for so long…” Try these words on for size and let me know how they fit. 🙂

    Yours in Success,

    • Sylviane Nuccio says:

      Hi Bill,

      Well, what about I’ve been learning for too long? 🙂

      I know what you mean and I don’t feel a failure anymore, but for the longest time I’ve not been at the level I should have for my age. I know that’s all dictated by society such as what degree you have, what position you have and how much money you have. We live in a society that measures success by such criteria a whole lot, don’t we?

      My higher self, so to speak, knows better though, but we can’t really get ourselves out of the society we live in except by becoming a recluse somewhere. However, we can’t still think of ourselves our own way. But as a matter of fact, those low times will serve me greatly in my coaching though.

      Thank you for this. And have an excellent weekend.

    Hey Sylviane,

    Congratulations on getting the opportunity to be a CPC coach.. I know it’s been a long time waiting, but you worked hard to get to this level.

    Having a client that you helped is definitely a plus. It says a lot about you and it’s great that he wrote a testimonial on how much he appreciated your coaching and how much you helped him to achieve his goals.

    I definitely have to agree that knowing your way and being aligned with it will help you keep going when the going gets tough. Two reason why I see people quit is because they’re not aligned with their why and also they don’t know their core reason why they want to achieve something. The is the reason that’s going to fuel you when you run out of gas!

    Thanks for sharing!

    Hi Sylviane,

    Congratulations on achieving your certification. I know you’ve talked about if for a long time and it’s finally here! That’s a big accomplishment in life.

    I’ve never used a life coach but many of my friends have and always seem satisfied and my very dear friend is a coach and raves about how it helps people.

    Best of luck to you in this venture. I’m sure you’ll be very successful at it as you have a kind, loving heart and that is the first step in helping others.

    Good luck,

      Yes, coaches do help quite a bit, that’s why all successful people have one. Actually, at times, the ones who need a coach the most are the ones not having one. That’s the sad truth of statistics, but hopefully it will change as the awareness in this area is changing.

    Hi Sylviane,

    Sorry I’m late but this is the most fantastic news! I am so happy for you. You already helped so many people and getting your certification is so exciting. I know there are many coaches out there, but you are a born coach. You have shown that you have a great deal of knowledge with the subconscious mind, law of attraction and so on.

    As in any profession, some people are just naturals like you. Having this certification will boost your business to your wildest dreams. Or maybe surprise you to be even more wilder he he.

    I have absolute confidence that you will succeed in this because it is your passion. You know your “why” and you have a compassionate heart. You also know how to listen to people effectively. Put it all together and slap on a certification…and away you will go girl.

    As you know I work with many people, and when they need coaching I’ll be sending them to you. I used to have contacts long ago but lost touch. Now, when my clients need a Coach, I can fully trust that they will be in good hands with you.

    Congratulations,

    Hi Sylviane

    Sorry I am late here – but wow and well done.

    I think it is great to get some qualifications as it does help in business. I must say though after years at University and studying to be a CPA I learned more “on the job” than at school. But that bit of paper helped me market myself 🙂

    I am sure you will do very well. Also great you are going to do toastmasters. I have never been to it but know it is good. I did some presentation courses from a few different people and they helped a lot.

    I did the survey – very cool.

    All the very best wishes for your success.

      Hi Sue,

      I know, I’m like you, I personally don’t put great importance on certification and other diploma, because I know that the real qualification is experience. But, unfortunately, we live in a world that measures us based on such certification and other degrees, so we need to play the game to grow our business and the confidence that people put on us.

      I can’t wait to start joining toastmasters, I’ve heard only good things about it too.
