The Best of 2016 Leadership and Coaching Articles

Another year of articles on improving your leadership, your coaching, and marketing your services. Four topics emerge as I review 2016 articles with the most number of views. Here is the best of 2016 leadership and coaching articles. 

The first 2 topics concerned coaching. Many coaches are looking for more clients. How to find them and what to charge was at the top of the list of most viewed articles. The second coaching topic answers the question, What is coaching?

Being a great leader means more than employing a few leadership techniques, it’s adopting internal shifts in your mindset that frees you up to behave differently. That’s the third topic. Finally, tips on leadership skills are always popular, and a few of these articles did well too.

When you get the end, let me know what was the most memorable or meaningful article from 2016 for you.

1. How To Market Your Coaching Services

Many coaches are looking for more coaching clients, paid or unpaid. The most viewed articles on in 2016 were about finding more people to coach. The results of October’s customer survey highlighted this need as well. We will be launching an online course on this topic soon. In the meantime, here’s what I’ve written about finding clients.

2. What It Means To Be A Coach

There’s a lot of talk, and confusion, out there about what it means to be a coach. Coaching is an unregulated field, but there are plenty of standards and best-practices that have been developed. Three articles highlight these.
