Training for life coaches who want to grow their business through offering life coaching groups. | taught by Joeel & Natalie Rivera

Become a Certified Group Life Coach!

This course provides training for life coaches who want to grow their business through offering life coaching groups.

Unfortunately, most life coaches end up leaving the field. Not because they’re not talented, but because they’re not making enough money. They burn out constantly stressing over how to get enough paying clients and how to juggle their schedule.

Adding group coaching to our coaching business is hands down one of the most important things we’ve done to create success.

We designed this program to teach you everything you need to know to create your very own group coaching program.

  • How to use the same process you use with your individual clients to coach an entire group of your ideal clients.
  • How to effectively manage your group, including all of the administrative details, logistics, and technology.
  • How to structure your group, what content to include, what to charge, and how to prosper as a group coach.
  • How to create marketing campaigns THAT FILL YOUR GROUPS using email autoresponder sequences, webinars, opt-in pages and sales pages.
  • How to feel confident facilitating a group by learning advanced group facilitation techniques and communication strategies.

Lead Instructors & Coaches

Joeel & Natalie Rivera

Joeel and Natalie Rivera are professional speakers, trainers, and coaches. Their mission is to provide tools that empower people to ignite their dreams,  unleash their potential and fulfill their purpose. Through their  company, Transformation Services, Inc., they provide digital content  publishing, online courses, and life coach training programs that act as  a catalyst for personal empowerment. Joeel  is a former psychology professor with a Master’s Degree in Counseling  and Education and is currently completing his dissertation for his Ph.D.  in Psychology, with an emphasis on happiness. Using the science of  psychology and human potential, they train leading edge entrepreneurs,  leaders, life coaches, and individuals how to master the power of their  mind and create their destiny.They  are serial entrepreneurs who challenge and inspire others to take their  power back through self-employment as INDIEpreneurs, (self-employed  freedom junkies). Between the two of them, they’ve started over a dozen  businesses, from photography to a non-profit teen coaching center, and  from an import business to a holistic virtual office. They  became INFOpreneurs in 2014 when they fully transitioned their print  magazine into digital format because they found they could reach an  exponential, worldwide market at a fraction of the time and cost. They  closed their physical offices and began converting their in-person  workshops and speeches into information products and online courses. Then, in 2015 they received a proverbial “kick in the pants” to go  “all-in” when Joeel fell ill after traveling overseas. Unable to leave  the house, they continued reach and inspire their market by creating 50  online courses in only 2 years, including digitizing their popular life  coach training programs and certifications. Today, they have served 300,000+ students from 195 countries.
