How To Launch (or Re-Launch) Your Coaching Business In 13 Hours And Earn Over £100k p/year working part-time

Watch the webinar hereWant to LAUNCH YOUR OWN COACHING BUSINESS IN 13 HOURS? Book a call with Dr. Jon Finn hereWHAT YOU WILL LEARN:Many senior leaders are working longer hours than ever before. They find that they are still sending emails at 10pm on a Friday night and working over the weekend. This is increasing stress levels and leaving many on the verge of burnout.These working practices, and the associated stress, are destructive for brain health both in the short and long-term. They increase your chances of developing dementia, depression and cancer. That’s why so many business leaders are turning to coaches and also considering setting up their own coaching businesses - so they can get more control over their working hours and their lives. However, leaders are experiencing first-hand that traditional coaching is not very effective at helping them to overcome the destructive behaviours they are developing. This experience is also making them realise that the training coaches receive is not very effective. In this webinar you will learn:- Why traditional coaching is outdated and ineffective.- About a new “3-Step Habit Mechanic Coaching System” that reprogram people’s brains and helps them to actually be healthier, happier, and supercharges their performance at work.- How you can launch your very own coaching business in 13 HOURS and begin your journey to becoming a World-Class coach

Why Traditional Coaching is Broken and How to Fix It (Using a New Science-Based Approach)

There’s no getting around it: we live in a challenging and constantly changing world. The distractions, pressures, and stresses we face—especially in the business world—are unprecedented. It’s harder than ever to feel well, be resilient, and perform to our potential.That’s why so many business leaders are turning to executive coaches. They want help figuring out how to improve their own, their teams and their businesses performance (so they can beat the competition). As a result of this demand, the field of executive coaching is rapidly expanding. Indeed, there are over 60,000 business coaching businesses in the United States alone, and that number is growing every year. The Bad News: Traditional coaching is based on a flawed model! In the episode I explain why and what we can do differently to make it easier for people to consistently be their best.

Creating “Super Habits” with Dr. Jon Finn

Dr. Jon Finn wrote his best-selling book ‘The Habit Mechanic’ (which took him over 20 years) because his life’s mission is to help people to be their best in the challenging modern world. This book is proven to change lives. People have said it is a ‘MANUAL FOR LIFE’, and a ‘TOOL KIT FOR SUCCESS’. It contains over 30 self-improvement tools.Dr. Jon Finn founded the award-winning Tougher Minds consultancy and has three psychology-related degrees, including a Ph.D. He has worked in performance psychology, resilience, and leadership science for over 20 years.Tougher Minds uses cutting-edge insights from psychology, behavioral science, neuroscience, and world champions to help organizations develop “Habit Mechanics” and “Chief Habit Mechanics”—resilient people, outstanding leaders, and world-class teams.Having trained and coached over 10,000 people, Dr. Finn, and his colleagues, work with global businesses, high-growth startups, individuals, elite athletes, coaches and teams, leading educational institutes, families, the UK government, and think tanks.Key QuestionsHow do you Manage your Happiness?QUOTE: (8:50) There are three core ingredients. One is you’ve got to get your brain working properly. So that means you’ve got to get good sleep, a good diet, good exercise, and also have really good, positive, personal relationships. That’s going to help your brain work really well. The next ingredient is you’ve got to have, in scientific language, some spend some time doing hedonic things. So getting pleasure is giving in to short-term gratification, but the third ingredient, which is harder than ever to attend is eudaimonia which is working towards doing and achieving meaningful goals.Now we call this habit mechanic development. So we’ve got to balance those three things outWhat is your favorite coaching question?A: “How can you make big improvements in your life quickly?”QUOTE: (19:56)  The surprising truth is you are getting better at the things that you don’t want to get better. When you worry, you develop more wires in your brain for worrying. When you beat yourself up, you develop more wires in your brain for beating yourself up.So the realization, that we are actually on autopilot the vast, vast majority of the time is a huge insight for most people because we are not designed to think of ourselves in that way. We are designed to think about the external world, not what is going on inside our own brains. And when we just start to get a little bit of insight just by turning on our prefrontal cortex a little bit more and doing a little bit more intelligent self watching, then we can start to make some big improvements very quickly. If we start to consistently do things a little bit differently and then build on this idea that we’re going to get good at what we practice, we’ve got to recognize what are the things that influence and  make it easier for us to practice the things that we’d like to practice

They have worked extensively in the highest levels of elite sport, advised the Government and think tanks, had their work featured in The Sunday Times, The Sunday Telegraph, People Management and T.E.S, published peer-reviewed papers and popular books within the area of performance psychology, and helped 10,000s of people be their best more often.
