“Coaching the x-Preneur” is for coaches who wish to expand their knowledge and skills in the Core Competency area of Facilitating Learning and Results, focusing on 9) Designing Actions, 10) Planning and Goal Setting, and 11) Managing Progress and Accountability. The course will be of particular interest to coaches who specialize in working with clients who are aspiring, new, or established entrepreneurs, intrapreneurs, solo-preneurs, mumpreneurs – you fill in the “x”! These aspiring and new entrepreneurs include Baby Boomers who are retiring and starting their own “encore career” businesses. According to a Gallup poll, as high as 83% of baby boomers are starting “encore careers.” (Business Journal, 2015) Additional research reveals that many new businesses fail because the new entrepreneur attempts to do everything himself, without help or support. The areas of goal setting, designing actions, monitoring, and accountability are of particular vulnerability for aspiring and new x-Preneurs. Having a knowledgeable coach may be the best source of professional development to avoid failure rates of nearly half of businesses within five years and 66% within ten years. Cohort limited to 12 participants.
