Being certified (even at the highest level) and masterful with all the competencies isn't the full story of being an amazing, results-producing coach.
Why is that? Two reasons:
"We have amazing calls and my clients are lit up and super thankful, but they don't do the work, then think it was ME who failed them!"
If you’ve ever thought this, you’re not alone. Coaching that matters is coaching that challenges. You don’t want to babysit clients, but you don’t have to leave their follow-through to chance. There’s a better way to support your clients while keeping them on track, focused, and motivated.
You want your clients raving because they got big results by actually doing the work.
You want clients to fully value you, because the results they got are both documented and obvious.
"I don't want my website to have just the same rosy platitudes—what do I say to be different and have people get it?"
"I have all this great coach training, but now what? How do I attract real, paying clients?"
It’s hard to package the intangible. But coaching, made up of conversations that make a difference, is largely that: intangible. You know your coaching ability is the real deal, but how do you convince someone new to coaching that it’s more than a notebook and a phone call? Coaching doesn’t have to look “woo woo” from the outside; there’s a better way to show off what your clients get when they hire you.
You want even the most right-brained and ROI-focused to look at your offering and say, "Well that just makes sense."
You want a system that puts your coaching in a class unto itself: tidy, professional, and immaculately well-organized.
You see where we're going with this?
It makes your coaching more approachable and more effective.
If you are a successful coach or mentor and you’re looking for a best practices, leading edge platform to work with, look no further.
As a discriminating and hard to please technology industry veteran of 20 years, I spent YEARS trying to find a robust, fully functional solution for my mentoring practice that integrated appointment management AND client/practice management tools, AND that also offered excellent, responsive support.
The winner hands down is CoachAccountable.
I got into coaching to coach people, not to merge files, sort through emails, or test my memory. The paper chase was easy with five clients. It buried me at ten. With sixteen new clients on the horizon I had no idea how I'd manage it all. The thought of new business was overwhelming!
CoachAccountable changed that in a weekend. The ease of the site, the brilliance of the tutorials, and the personal touch of John helped me to put everything is its place. Now my data has a destination, my conversations have a record, and my follow up is flawless.
CA allows me to focus on what I'm called to do. Coach people!
You've no idea how much I'm appreciating your software. I've always struggled with having something that works as visual representation of what the client has accomplished and a central place for file storage etc.
I know my clients appreciate it, because my strength isn't to be organized, and I know it because they've said it already more than once from many different clients.
I just set up my first offering for a free intake call.
You NAILED THIS! Not only is the functionality awesome, the branding plus simple and clean design are incredible. Essentially you’ve given me the ability to create a landing page AFTER they schedule the initial appointment (free).
I couldn’t be happier. This completely eliminates the need for systems I'd stitched together, my scheduling software and Zapier. Also considering eliminating my forms software. If I were starting over I would start with only CA and reconsider if I needed any of these.
Just back from a relaxing, second holiday this year. As a professional leadership coach and business mentor, I took an extra hour before my vacation, set up all my current clients with their actions, worksheets, follow-ups, and reminders (aka auto-nag).
Now back again, everyone is on track, progressing well and I am refreshed.
Time saving is a huge benefit. Less time on admin, more time helping clients make that change they desire, and, of course, relaxing holidays!
I work with people who have Attention Deficit (ADD / ADHD). Part of the focus in our coaching is... well... developing "focus" and "structure".
I had always assisted my clients in creating goals with metrics (I was using Excel)... but to have it web accessible and web updateable was one of my dreams fulfilled.
Setting automated reminders tied into session times, actions, metrics, notes, etc is unbelievably easy and VERY good for my clientele.
I was looking for a system to help me manage and streamline my coaching practice. I wanted a solution that didn't require my clients or myself to be a rocket scientist to use it.
I was able integrate CoachAccountable into my practice easily and seamlessly. Perhaps the best part is that my clients have a living, breathing record of the whole of our coaching relationship, all in one place.
It takes my practice to a whole new level of professionalism and I can't imagine coaching without it now.

A rich body of documented coaching work which accumulates over time.
It's all there, and all available online.
Including what clients regularly report in.
Just by popping in about 10 minutes before a session, coach can get fully up to speed on what's happening with a client, INCLUDING what's new since the last time they spoke.
Coaching is generally an abstract process, but the organized records of what happens within a coaching relationship makes it much more tangible.
A great way to save time on the usual coaching process.
A coach can effectively coach a lot of clients when they can quickly get up to speed on the whole picture for a single client as needed.
With a lower time overhead per client, it's possible to fit more clients into the same number of hours without sacrificing quality.
Efficiency, organization, and streamlined communication all come together make coaching simply take less time.
Coach can either serve more clients or enjoy the freed-up hours some other way.
Whether taking on more paying clients or enjoying a the benefits of a lighter schedule, the result is happy for the overall state of the coaching practice.
Records of coaching accumulate across many months and engagements.
The coaching style itself can be improved upon using the insights contained within these records.
That which is tangible can be shown off, AND is better understood.
Coach can put the results of his or her coaching on public display.
This is nice, because only that which is understood can be fully appreciated.
When people see and appreciate the value of coaching, they are more likely to want it for themselves.
There's no better way to make the most of a coaching program and expertise than to have more people wanting to take it on.

Clients are getting what they came for, enjoying real results and eager to continue.
Prospective clients find the coaching compelling.

Cause great results for a lot of people, ultimately making lives and the world a better place?
People have gotten on for less.
Providing substantial value to a substantial number of people probably enables coach to command a nice fee for their fine work.
Who doesn't wanna be a baller?
At very least it's nice to make a good living.
Because successfully coaching people into their delighted potential can't help but make one feel good.
It's the stuff of deep purpose, satisfaction, and making a dent in the universe which one can be proud of.
Between in-system messaging, posting comments on specific happenings, text and email, communication between coach and client is made efficient, inviting, and always on-topic.
Barriers to communication are lowered and reaching out is made super fast, so coach can offer clients support between sessions.
Coach is informed in realtime about key events, like actions going late and worksheets being completed.
Coach can see what's done, what's not, how progress is unfolding. All without needing to wait for client to give a progress report.
Say the week's performance is way off and it's only Tuesday.
Knowing as much allows coach to check in and intervene sooner than later.
Skip the progress report on a coaching call, both coach and client are crystal clear about the score going in.
Dive right in with focused coaching based on the state of things.
Rather than wait until the next session, coach can provide timely support to clients to get them unstuck.
A client kept in motion can continue on progressing in the desired direction.
Delivered via text or email, reminders ensure clients stay aware of their intentions, and make it super easy to report back their progress.
A reminder can mean the difference between "I forgot" and "I got that done".
A simple reply of "done" marks an Action complete, and a simple number tracks the day's progress for a Metric.
No login required.
By regularly recording the progress over time trends emerge.
Regular reminders make it a cinch for clients to report simply by replying to email or text prompts.
Coaching either withers away as just a bunch of good ideas, or is acted upon for the sake of real results.
Follow through is vital to clients getting real value out of the coaching work they do.
Without action, there are no results.
With more consistent action, there are more results.
With strong & regular follow through, regular tracking of outcomes, and timely support from coach, client gets the results they seek.
Success is less of a meandering path, and more of a focused and supported pursuit.
Because what's not to love about achieving wins?
When the (plentiful, important, substantial) results are evident, a client naturally values the process which caused them.
Clients who are getting what they came for AND KNOW IT tend to stick around.
Because it's working.
Rather than peter off when the engagement ends, a satisfied client is more commonly eager to continue with the coaching relationship, so to reap more results.
If they're clearly getting benefit and are aware of it, who could blame them?
When clients are thriving under the coaching programs they have undertaken, well, they're thriving.
A client that stays around longer allows you to do deeper and more thorough work with them.
When it comes to having a full coaching roster, it's far easier to keep the clients you have than to find new ones.
Clients willing to work with a coach for longer means clients who are working further at growing themselves.
More individuals succeeding at growing themselves into their full potential means a generally more awesome world for everyone involved.
Because everyone feels good about people becoming more awesome.
