How These Former Teachers Went from the Classroom to Six-Figure Coaching Businesses

ON COACHING | Where do teaching and coaching overlap and how do they differ? Which skills transfer? Many of our team members were educators for years before they decided to become executive coaches. Former teachers/current Novus Global coaches Amanda Jaggard, Laura Leffelaar, Randy Poon, and Joseph Thompson discuss the venn diagram of teaching students and coaching adults. While the disposition required of great coaches and teachers is similar–an unconditional belief in their clients or students–the approach is not the same. The group discusses artificial limits, inquiry-based coaching, and how the ability to impart knowledge effectively in a classroom is a different art than the ability to ask the right open-ended questions to “unleash the genius” in a client.
Novus Global is a tribe of elite executive coaches who work with Fortune 500 Companies, Professional Athletes, World Renowned Artists and Business Leaders to create lives, teams and companies that go beyond high-performance.
