There seems to be a coach for everything. This post will help you to determine if coaching is the right type of support for you and your goals.

Not everyone needs a coach. It’s not always the right time to join a coaching program. If you’ve never worked with a coach, you have probably wondered who a good candidate for coaching is and when the best time to start coaching is. If you identify with these three statements, the answers to those questions are “you” and “now!”

You’re going through a transition.

New beginnings are exciting, but they often throw a wrench in the routines we’ve worked so hard to develop. Something I hear all the time is, “I used to be super productive before [XYZ], and now I’m struggling to figure out how to get back on track with my goals.”

All of these things are a blessing and a productivity curse simultaneously…

  • Getting a promotion
  • Moving to a new town
  • Having a baby
  • Graduating college
  • Starting a business

I recently surveyed current members and recent graduates of the D20 Theory coaching program to learn more about the transitions they have experienced in the last six months. These women are making big moves, so it’s no wonder they’ve sought the help of a coach to improve and maintain their productivity and mindset as they adjust.

You’re craving one-on-one support.

The D20 Theory coaching program includes a lot of fun bells and whistles, if I do say so myself. When it’s stripped down to basics, the specialized one-on-one support is something you can only receive from a coach. Everything else is just the icing on the cake.

Events are great for connecting with others; videos and worksheets are ideal for learning on your own time; and tangible products help put your goals into practice.

You can find versions of these things anywhere—although I hope you’ll attend D20 Theory’s events, try our free productivity worksheets, and check out our subscription boxes. What you can’t just click to join, download, or order is the individualized support you receive during the one-on-one coaching calls.

one-on-one productivity and mindset coaching

You’re comfortable investing in your success.

Real progress often requires a commitment of your time and money. How are you going to achieve your fitness goals, for example, if you don’t make time to exercise or purchase healthy foods?

If you checked the previous two boxes—transition and one-on-one support—and can dedicate at least 30-90 minutes per week to moving the meter forward with your goals, it’s time for you to consider coaching.

You’re hyped about the idea of working with a coach…except for the financial investment, right? You’re not alone. Time and financial investments are the top two reasons clients delay starting a coaching program. They are both totally valid reasons!

My goal as a coach is to decrease your stress and uncertainty so you can focus on your goals. This is how:

  1. Take a test drive. New clients can try out the program risk-free with a 30-day trial. Your investment is 100% refundable if you’re not satisfied with your experience.
  2. Opt into flexible billing. Month-to-month options are simple and flexible, especially if you’re new to coaching.
  3. Commit to your long-term success and save. Commit to a 3-month membership and save 15%. Commit to a 6-month membership and save 20%.

When you decide you’re ready for coaching, the first step is to learn about the program and book a discovery call to determine whether it’s a good fit before you invest any time and money. Your coach will guide you through the next steps.

If you didn’t check all the boxes, you’re not doomed to fail! There are many alternatives to coaching that may be a better fit for you right now. If you’re struggling to find the right fit, don’t hesitate to slide into my DM’s. I’m happy to talk through your options!
