The World Needs to Hear You: how to leverage writing to advance your coaching practice

Charisse M. Williams began coaching full-time in January, 2020, just seven weeks before the pandemic began. She started writing her first book, The Joy of Thriving While Black in June of 2020 and published it in April, 2021. In this session she will share what inspired the book, her writing process and how becoming an author has catapulted her coaching practice and business to the next level.

Participants will explore the question, “What issue or topic is tugging at your heart?” In small groups, you will identify what mediums you want to use to get that message into the world from blogs, and e-newsletters to writing a book. You will give and receive peer coaching on the next steps you can take to move yourselves forward.

This session will be engaging, interactive and leave participants inspired and motivated to take action!

Learning Objectives:

Learn about how to leverage your writing to generate business opportunities.
Learn how writing a book can reinforce coach expertise and maybe uncover a new niche or sub-niche.
Learn about the Creator Institute, a program that coaches participants in writing their books from inception through publishing.
Commit to a next step in doing more writing.

Participants will earn .5 Core Competency and 1 Resource Development CCEs for attending this program.
