How to Get Paying Clients
This is one of the most essential aspects of starting a coaching practice. Unique training techniques are initiated in the first week that ease you into a remarkably genuine offering of your services. Integration continues during the weekly webinar sessions strengthening the number one way of enrolling clients and expanding the numerous paths you may choose to a successful practice.
The cornerstone of Coach For Life’s unique coaching skills and processes is the Fulfillment Coaching Model™ that operates on the principle that we are always both seeking and being drawn to greater levels of fulfillment. One of the concepts offered within the Fulfillment Coaching Model™ is that we are all being called to our highest level of fulfillment through an innate knowingness of our own truth and gifts that we are here to share. This concept is the foundation that attracts the clients that are perfectly suited for you and your successful coaching practice.
Have Your Own Coach
Having your own personal peer-coach supports new coaches to create a successful coaching practice. So, Coach For Life provides you with your own peer-coach.
During the four-day seminar you receive over a month's worth of one-on-one coaching. And during the integration phase, Part II, of your training you have your own personal peer-coach to support you each week towards your own personalized creation of your coaching practice.
Having your own coach is an essential aspect of being able to present yourself to the world as a coach. The number-one way to enroll people into being coached is to be able to share the passion of your own personal insights and forward movement as facilitated by your coach. Without your personal experience, conviction and passion for what you have gained from having a professionally trained coach, there is very limited energy to share the benefits of hiring a coach.
The PCLC Part I & II program gives you the opportunity to get your own personal experience of being coached for three months. And there is no additional cost to you for this coaching. It is included in the price of the program.
Clients to Coach
Finding clients can be one of the most challenging aspects of becoming a coach. So, the three-month Certified Life & Leadership Coach Program is structured to provide a peer-client for you to coach during the first three months.
This can make a huge difference in new coaches' ability and willingness to put them self out to the world to serve as a coach. You see firsthand how much value there is to be received as a client from a coaching relationship and you get to experience the value YOUR coaching can deliver to someone else.
It is so important for a new coach to experience that they can provide that type of value to another by serving as their coach. You will be able to hear from your client what they are gaining from having you as their coach. Based on this feedback and fired up with that confidence, you can tell other people interested in hiring you as their coach what value they could find in working with you.
Coach For Life provides you with tremendous support in honing your coaching skills as well as developing your confidence to market yourself as a professional coach.

During MCLC one year program with my mentor Peter J. Reding I really went “Beyond” my expectations in building my coaching practice and fine tuning my coaching style. The 3 levels of coaching CFL Institute offers in terms of Self-Mastery, Coaching Mastery and Business Mastery are forming the perfect Tri-Angle for someone who is ready to extensively deep dive into personal and professional transformation. Peter’s brilliance, his natural humility added to the sacred space he is uniquely able to create, offer an alchemical mixture which opens the door for his client to create a great master piece. In 2018, my complete dedication into the art of coaching is crystallized into the Beyond Borders Career Coaching Model™ I gave birth to. I feel infinitely and deeply grateful to him for this unvaluable gift I was endowed to create. On my personal path toward excellence, I found with him the root and the daily nutrients to serve and honor others as a Beyond Borders Career Coach™".

My journey has culminated into the completion of my MCLC in November 2019, my experience has been a Divine one. I will always be grateful for the sacred space held, the freedom to explore and create my own model, while generously being supported by the wisdom, knowledge and honoring teaching style adopted by Peter and the design of the program.
The MCLC program has enabled and empowered me to share my spiritual understanding as a Back to Source Coach™ The MCLC program has also given me the direct experience of Oneness.

I felt it coming through the phone when I was searching, and I experienced it when at this week. They are complete as separate beings and complete and amazing as a team. Wonderful tips on how to speak about coaching. I went from “closed” to “open.” If you want to learn coach guidelines and skills, there will be many great places for you to do that. BUT if you want to TRANSFORM your life AND be a great coach AND transform the lives of OTHERS then Coach For Life is aligned with you.

Peter as an Instructor – the best I could hope for! So happy I found him. This course was life changing for me personally and for being able to be an effective coach. I truly wish everyone in the world could take this program. It is life changing! It includes a tool box of tools to handle relationships, transitions, life and coaching.
There are a lot of programs out there. Check them out and see what is right for you. My experience led me to CFL (Coach For Life) and I am so grateful that I made that choice for my-self. Coach For Life is beyond a training program. It is an invitation for complete and truthful transformation. No part of my life remains untouched by what I have learned, integrated, and now (and forevermore) will practice.
