This Episode: Deciding To Coach – with The Coaching Crowd

This week, Lucinda talks to Zoe Hawkins and Jo Wheatley of The Coaching Crowd Podcast, who are in the process of launching an exciting new book, ‘Deciding To Coach’. Jo and Zoe discuss their fascinating work, and how it may help you to decide upon your own coaching ambitions.

Key Takeaways

  • The first half of the book is dedicated to equipping you with the tools you may need in order to coach. The second half contains the business strategies that Zoe and Jo have used to build a successful coaching business.
