How do you move from time consuming, tiring, unscalable one on one coaching to group coaching? Let me take you through this step by step.
What Is Group Coaching?
Group coaching is bringing a number of your prospects together to work on their challenges in their business or life to make changes for the better.
In a life coaching scenario, this could revolve around losing weight (weight watchers is effectively group coaching), building confidence or reducing anxiety.
In a business scenario, this can revolve around business growth (my offering), increasing sales or increasing profitability.
Why Does Group Coaching Work Better For Your Coaching Clients?
Group coaching works so much better for your clients for these reasons:
- Instead of just being accountable to you, their coach, they are now also responsible to everyone else in the group too. This increases the chances of your clients seeing the changes that they would like to see.
- Whilst they might have many mental blocks around what they are trying to achieve, when they hear other people in the group explaining how they have overcome the same challenges, it enables them to see a way forward, learning from the others experiences.
- They usually pay more to be a part of a group coaching programme. Because they are so financially involved in the process, they are more likely to follow through on their agreed actions.
Why Does It Work Better For You?
Ultimately, you started your coaching business to make a difference to people’s lives or their business.
Whilst you can do this one client at a time, you can dramatically increase the results you obtain for your clients if you put them into a group coaching scenario.
Instead of, for example, working with 10 to 15 people a month on an ongoing basis, you could run one different group coaching programme a week, with 8 people in each group, and suddenly you are able to help 32 people every month.
You amplify your results but also, perhaps most importantly for you as a coach, you increase your turnover and profit whilst working a fraction of the time it takes to coach clients one on one.
Imagine if instead of every day your diary being full of client appointments, it only has one day where you do your Group Coaching call, with the rest of the week allowing you to focus on becoming an even better coach for all of your group coaching clients?
How To Launch A Group Coaching Programme
Ultimately, group coaching is effectively a mastermind group – putting together like minded people who want to achieve the same ultimate aims (business growth/weight loss etc).

When a group of individual minds are coordinated and function in harmony, the increased energy created through that alliance becomes available to every individual in the group.
How Much To Charge?
For the reasons stated above, you can charge significantly more for your group coaching than one on one, as the results will be so much better for your clients.
Whereas you might charge £100 to £250 for single coaching sessions, you can easily charge £500 – £1,000 a month per attendee for group coaching.
What would that do for your income?
