Prospering as a New Coach: A Discussion With Steve Chandler

19th May 2021

In this fascinating episode of Coaching Uncaged, Animas Centre Director Robert Stephenson is joined by business and life coach, author of more than 30 books including The Prosperous Coach and founder of the Coaching Prosperity School, Steve Chandler.

Steve shares how he came to write The Prosperous Coach with fellow coach Rich Litvin, as well as touching on the thinking and processes behind some of his other popular literature, sharing that the majority of his books were created through a desire to serve others, and the permission to play, experiment and be creative.

Steve details the personal journey, including the challenges, that led him to coaching, following careers in the music industry, journalism and corporate training, before setting up the Coaching Prosperity School 14 years ago.

Robert and Steve touch on some of the anxieties and challenges around starting out as a new coach, including a tendency to personalise common occurrences such as potential clients not wanting to work with us, and offers takeaways from his own experience around these challenges to help coaches to reframe limiting beliefs touching on what he calls a ‘not yet list’.

Steve also speaks on not needing to have a North Star goal – and if you do that it’s OK if it changes, the place for social media and marketing within coaching, and the importance of building relationships and real connection among those that we work with, as well as sharing what’s next for him around coaching, writing and speaking on the topics that really interest him.

Find out more about Steve and his work.

We hope that you enjoy this discussion!
