10+ Great LinkedIn Groups to Consider Joining if you're a Coach!

Group of People Connecting online

I initially wrote this post after having some great discussions on LinkedIn.

LinkedIn really does seem to be a great place for networking with other coaches, meeting potential clients in a professional context, sharing experiences, lessons learned, great resources and articles and having discussions. So many of us work alone in a home office so these groups are a great place to 'meet' like-minded people, ask questions, share ideas and/or best practices and stay inspired about our coaching community!

Here are 10 Great LinkedIn Groups for Coaches:

  1. International Coach Federation This Group has been around for 10 years with almost 100,000 members! Why are you NOT in this group?
  2. International Coaching Network  Lots of activity, lots of great coaches, questions and more. "This group is a risk-free zone to ask questions, share ideas and consult with other coaches."
  3. Professional Life Coaches Network  A group dedicated to and supporting life coaches in growing their business. "This group is a gathering of life coaches who want to actively network with each other and provide life coaching resources, support, and services to empower each other to get more life coaching clients and make more money in their coaching businesses."
  4. Coaching Zone For all kinds of coaches and people interested in coaching. "Whether you are a seasoned professional with a full practice or a new coach trying to break into the business, the Coaching Zone is the resource for coaching mastery and business success."
  5. www.thecoachingforums.com "An online independent community for coaches. Contributing to advancing and strengthening coaching; playing a role in helping a strong, young industry become something superb, significant and trusted."
  6. Coaches (Life, Business, Relationship, etc.) Support Group This is a members-only group, so you need to ask to join. This group is for you if you are a personal coach and/or speaker. "Join us to discuss client-attraction strategies, website building strategies, and specific coaching-related issues."
  7. Formerly Business Coaching 2.0, now called ManageHub Business Accelerator  A members-only group so you'll need to request to join, but you'll get lots of great tips to build your coaching business... "Join our group if you want to share the latest management, strategy, and technology ideas, that can help accelerate your business to breakthrough speed. Our members include business owners, accountants, managers, consultants, strategists, coaches, advisers, and mentors."
  8. CoachingCloud A small, but growing professional LinkedIn group. "provides support and information to help you improve the results of your coaching and mentoring partnerships. We encourage open discussions and sharing ideas to help improve the results of coaching and mentoring."
  9. Find A Coach  A members only group. With a slightly different angle, "If you are a coach, let us know what you do and how you can assist us in our lives or businesses. If you just want to know more about what life and business coaches do, then this might be the group for you."
  10. Choice Magazine  The LinkedIn Group behind Choice coaching magazine. A friendly and fun group.

2 Bonus LinkedIn Groups:

  1. E-Coaching: A dialogue between researchers and practitioners If you're interested in e-coaching. And what is e-coaching anyway? I joined this group recently and am curious to see where it goes.
  2. The Power of Positive Thinking & The Law of Attraction? If you like hearts, stars, hugs and lots of love, check out this group dedicated to the law of attraction and positive thinking.

    With havin so much written content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright
    violation? My blog has a lot of unique content I've either created myself or outsourced but it appears a
    lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my authorization. Do you know
    any ways to help protect against content from being
    stolen? I'd really appreciate it.

    Great article! As a new life coach I'm looking for some great resources and communities to connect with. I just recently completed a 30 day brand intensive course that really helped me narrow my niche and become clear on my messaging as a life coach, so I'm feeling excited for what's to come!
