Just as great musicians surround
themselves with the sound of great music, so too must any masterful coach
surround themselves with the sounds of expert coaching.
In fact, I'm sure you agree that great
coaching, like great music, has a special resonance one can only begin to
recognize with practice. Hearing it, holding the energy of that
resonance, and bringing that energy to your coaching sessions is a habit
that comes with time.
Internationally-Respected Mentor Coach Barbra Sundquist Hinted About
Her to Record As Many Coaching Sessions As She'd Be Willing
The truth is, I was willing to be
as absolutely convincing as I needed to be to hear her say
'yes.' Plead, tease, offer my own time and energy, appeal to
emotion, intellect, whatever it took to entice Barbra to put herself and
her deep well of coaching experience 'on the record' for the rest of us.
What was all this die-hard
conviction? As author of Multiple Streams of Coaching Income
and Business Mentor in the coaching community since 2003, let me just say
that the thought of Barbra 'retiring' and never being able to hear her
coaching again - I couldn't swallow it, so I decided to do something about
Young Profession, It's Critical For Us To Treasure Our Mentors and Seize
Every Opportunity to Learn Fully From Them, Wouldn't You
The musicality of the coaching essence
is undeniable, and evident in every minute of coaching Barbra has
personally selected for The Coaching By Example Series. As
veteran coaches scale back their coaching, it's my hope - if I have
anything to do with it - each one will invest as much time and care as
Barbra has into preserving a slice of their unique coaching sound.
Without this investment of effort, we
will lose an enormous cache of wisdom...wisdom that's truly irreplaceable
to the coach who seeks to master coaching by listening to great coaching
Suffice to say, it's been a privilege
to play a role in making The 'Coaching By Example' Series of recordings
available so no-one need miss out.
Regardless of your ultimate retirement
plans, Barbra, a heartfelt thank you for your extended work to
bring your coaching 'in from the wild' into this permanent home.
So what's the result of all this work,
you might ask? In the final count...
Is Mentor Coach Barbra Sundquist Retiring
Answer: We hope
Coaching By Example 9-CD Series consists of *not* 10,
*not* 20, *not even* 30, but...
Of Coaching & Commentary
51 tracks on 9
CDs in an enviro-friendly 9' by 12' package, shown above.
Ideal for keeping safe in the car or shelving with dictionaries
and other reference texts.
The Coaching By Example Series
has been created with one overriding goal -
To showcase a wide
range of coaching clients meeting a full spectrum of life challenges
head-on, in a format you can play, enjoy, repeat and emphasize an
unlimited number of times.
In addition to her own coaching
samples, Barbra has carefully selected mini-demonstrations of 8 Guest
Coaches from within her personal network. Her commentary for
each demo - including her own - allows you to understand how and why the
sample was selected.
In this way, you become infused in the
timbre, energy and pacing of a variety of stellar coaching while
simultaneously remaining grounded through Barbra's consistent and
Whether you've been coaching for many
years or just a few months, you may at first be surprised - and then
delighted - at how masterful coaching sounds in this many
You'll learn from the types of
clients you hear as well, much more than you could by trial and error,
trying to stay one step ahead of new clients under pressure. By
'trying on' each Coaching by Example demo client as one of your own, your
coaching 'ear' becomes seasoned very quickly.
This is the kind of seasoning that can
come only with practice. The Coaching By Example Series of 9
CDs is your opportunity to practice, practice, practice.
Each Live Coaching Track, Barbra Explains 'Why' So You Aren't Left
I believe you'll agree it's a real coup
for us to have Barbra coaching extensively in real-time on this series of
CDs. The only thing that would have made things better was to have her
explain 'why' she coached as she did so we wouldn't be left hanging.
So that's what she did!
As a result, The Coaching By Example
Series gives us both raw material for the intuitive right-brain
in the form of coaching clips, and follows through with analytical
left-brain explanation in the form of commentary and critique.
Here's just one quick example of the
kind of support you'll hear from Barbra every step of the way...
As easy as pressing 'Play.'
Slip a CD into your player and 'voila!' your mentoring begins.
You Want to Become Certified as a Coach Or *Not*
You'll Hear a Rigorous Professional Standard Upheld on each CD
In case you don't already know, Barbra
has a long list of pioneering contributions she's made in the coaching
world. But the one you might care about most is her previous role as
for the International Association of Coaching (IAC.)
Now, you may be interested in getting
certified as a coach, or, you may be completely uninterested. Either
way, you benefit from the part Barbra played in
creating the examination standards for this major certifying body.
The explanations of 'why exactly' she
coaches as she does on each CD are rooted in real-life international
certification standards. A great thing for any coach seeking a
robust 'coaching immersion' experience, and priceless if your goal is
In fact...if you're actively
considering certification, or feel you may in the near future, you'll
be glad to know --

Working From Her Home Recording Studio, Barbra Has Customized the
CD-Series With 200 Hours of Her Personal Care and Attention
200 hours is a lot of time to spend
completing just one project, if you think about it for a moment - even in
Barbra's dream office overlooking the trees.
In fact, that's five full weeks of
full-time hours - 40 hours a week! Not your 'average' set of CDs,
So why would Barbra spend more
than 20 hours on each and every CD in this series?
The answer's pretty simple - she wanted
it to be the very best finished product if could be, end of story.
What this actually entailed, however, takes a little more telling, but in
|Everything on The Coaching By Example CDs was personally selected by Barbra
in her home office, above.
Suffice to say that in addition to
conducting the actual coaching sessions, painstakingly selecting
the perfect clip down to the second, and drafting and recording the
commentary as many times as needed to get it 'just right', Barbra
also took on the task of editing the audio herself, and
double checking each track so she could be 100% sure of the end
Though I don't envy her the standards
she set, I can tell you that each time I spoke to Barbra during the
creative process, she was positive and upbeat, excited at the prospect of
coaches the world over improving the quality of their coaching, and
thereby helping make the world a better place.
