About Coaching Tools

What is a Coaching Tool?

A Coaching Tool is an inspiring worksheet or coaching exercise that helps people understand new concepts, learn about themselves and make positive change in their lives.

Coaching Tools are like power tools for your coaching toolbox: they boost your confidence and also help your clients grow—faster.

And they're a powerful supplement to your coaching conversations. Use them in one-on-one coaching sessions, in your client welcome packet, as homework, in workshops and webinars, with teams and groups and more.

What are Some Coaching Tools You Can Use Right Away?

There are so many different tools for coaches! And many are commonly used with clients.

The Best Known Coaching Tool is:

  1. The Wheel of Life. What coach hasn't heard of this coaching tool? I love the coaching wheel because it's endlessly customisable! Commonly used in coaching for life balance, you can also edit a blank coaching wheel and use it for anything! Learn more about How to Use the Wheel of Life here >>

And here are 5 Popular Tools for Coaches:

  1. A Values Workbook to help your clients identify their values. This is a powerful tool for coaches to help clients understand themselves more deeply, and align their lives with what is most important.
  2. The Tolerations Tool. What are your clients "tolerating" in their lives? Help them let go of things they don't want or need, and stop procrastinating. Free up precious energy so your clients feel lighter and happier.
  3. The Spheres of Influence Tool. People worry far too much these days! Especially about things they have little or no control over. Instead, help your clients let go of things they can't influence, and focus on where they can make a difference with this powerful tool for coaches (based on Stephen Covey's work).
  4. Big Rocks and Little Rocks. This visual tool for coaches helps our clients prioritise what's most important in their lives. Once they know what matters most, they then fill in the spaces left with their little rocks...
  5. Daily Success Habits. Our habits are what we do—every day! Use this popular coaching tool to help your clients identify purposeful new habits to make them happier and more successful.

Coaching is important

Grow your Confidence, Grow your Clients and Grow your Business.

We know that many coaches struggle to grow their coaching practice. I did too when I started out.

And that's why I developed professional tools for coaching; worksheets and forms that boosted my confidence and offered instant and concrete value to both clients and prospects.

Coaching is needed in the world today.

So if you're reading this, YOU'RE needed.

From a young age people are told what to do and when, what to learn, what to think and what matters. The rules are set by others. People internalize and follow these rules, forming beliefs around them, falsely believing it's who they are.

It's no wonder so many people feel disconnected from themselves. And the skills and techniques we learn as coaches help our clients develop new ways of being. We coaches help our clients challenge their limiting beliefs—to live a life they love, and be who they truly are.

So, the world needs coaching, but more importantly the world needs YOU!

Patrina Clark loves The Coaching Tools Company Headshot

"I absolutely love, love, love the tools! I've purchased two toolkits, and I love every single tool. They are all very high-quality (both in content and appearance) and easily customizable. They have saved me HOURS of work by having easy-to-access and easy-to-use tools that are very specific to my clients' needs. Truly an invaluable resource that I am thankful and happy to have found."

- Patrina M. Clark, HCS, SPHR, President Pivotal Practices Consulting LLC

Coaching Can be Challenging, Coaching Tools Help!

Coaching as a career is both rewarding and challenging. You get to do meaningful work and help people grow, but you also become a small business owner - an entrepreneur. Moreover, running your own coaching business is extremely hard work. There is so much to do, to learn, and time disappears - fast.

Crucially, done-for-you Coaching Tools, Forms and Exercises save you tons of time and energy, because you don't have to create them yourself.

Most importantly, the ultimate purpose of Coaching Tools is to help clients move forwards, get motivated and commit to action. In addition, when you use tools in coaching they concretize the coaching experience, helping clients (and prospects) see the value of coaching right away.

So, done-for-you coaching exercises save you time, energy and weeks of work. Furthermore, they boost your confidence, allowing you to offer professional pre-prepared forms and exercises to use in coaching sessions, as homework, in workshops and more.

We offer *Brandable*, Professional Coaching Tools, Forms & Exercises for Coaches!

We offer a wide range of professional brandable Coaching Tools and Exercises for coaches who want to build a thriving practice full of engaged clients.

  • Add power tools to your toolbox! Work your coaching magic - and use exercises and tools as appropriate to boost your clients' learning and growth.
  • Don't spend weeks creating Coaching Tools, Forms and Exercises when we've already done the work for you!
  • Pssst! Clients love coaching tools too - they love completing them, and they love delving for deeper learnings with you, their coach. It's why we keep creating more...

Our most popular coaching tool - ever - is our Free Wheel of Life. See The Complete Guide to The Wheel of Life (everything you need to know!) to learn more, and get your free wheel!


Client Testimonial - about Coaching Tools!

"Her tools are simple, easy to use, and highly effective. What I like most about her coaching and her tools, is that I always walk away with an 'action plan' I can implement right away, from which I start seeing results almost immediately."

- Rishel Tomlinson, Former Client, Mortgage Broker & Owner of Custom Mortgages

Get the benefits of all my hard work without lifting a finger:

I've been coaching since 2003 and I built Simplicity Life Coaching Ltd. from scratch into a successful life coaching business!

Initially I developed Coaching Tools to save time and feel more confident. But then I found there were many extra benefits I didn't expect:

  • They make coaching more tangible - something a client can literally grab hold of!
  • Coaching Worksheets help you appear professional and organized.
  • They make great homework to keep clients engaged between sessions.
  • And they make fantastic handouts (walking brochures!) for your workshops and seminars.

It took me years to develop, test and accumulate all these Coaching Worksheets and Toolkits and you get to bypass it all - receiving all the benefits without the hard slog!

But don't believe me - check out our testimonials here and in the boxes below.

Doc Richard Eley"Thanks for all the TOOLS!!! They are fantastic... My clients LOVE the tools and many become serious about their life/business as they work through each of the different TOOLS that I have sent them. Again...thanks!!!"

Coaching Tools Boost Confidence—especially when you're starting out.

If you're already successful it's a full-time job to keep your clients engaged and quality referrals pouring in. Meanwhile, when you're starting out as a coach, it can be challenging to describe what you do, and demonstrate value to your potential clients. Our tools for coaching are intended to help both new and established coaches.

Tools for Coaches help:

  • Save time and energy developing and testing your own coaching worksheets so you can focus on important things like expanding your business and coaching clients!
  • Keep your coaching fresh - with a constant stream of new ideas and exciting resources.
  • Provide continuity and a bridge between sessions - your clients achieve more because they stay longer in a coaching frame of mind.
  • Create inspiring and fun workshops with helpful handouts.
  • Always have something ready to do with prospects or clients when they come to a session with vague requests or unclear objectives.

Collette-Gee-smaller"I love The Coaching Tools Company! I began using some of the free resources in my workshops, and after I received such rave reviews on the exercises and activities I downloaded, I went ahead and made my first of many purchases from The Coaching Tools Company. The participants in my workshop love the activity and exercises, and what's even better is that many of the attendees actually signed up for individual sessions with me! How exciting, and it's thanks to your amazing tools."

- Collette Gee - Certified Neuro-Lingustic Practitioner and Holistic Coach Finding Happily

Coaching Tools and Exercises are underused in the coaching world...

Our Coaching Tools are not intended to replace coaching, instead they are a supplement. They provide a valuable foundation that helps you:

  • Stand out! Add a polished, tangible framework to your coaching sessions and practice.
  • Have super-productive coaching sessions and workshops. Clients write out their learnings, discoveries and actions.
  • Help your clients identify blocks and come up with new ideas—faster—which they then bring to you to delve deeper and work your coaching magic!
  • Concretize coaching. Tools and forms make it easier to attract more new clients, increase prospect conversion rates and inspire your existing clients to rave about you.

Christina Sestan Headshot"When I first saw your collection of career coaching tools I said, 'TERRIFIC JOB!! Bottom line - I LOVE it and want it!'... it’s great to have something lighthearted and appropriate to coaching ready to hand out. Emma-Louise’s coaching tools create a context around the work I do with my clients – a structure and foundation that pulls everything together and helps to anchor results. Thanks so much for sharing your career coaching tools!"

- Christina Sestan, Citrus Coaching Solutions

Coaching Tools also add a lighthearted and fun element to the often challenging coaching process.

Let's face it, to get real results our clients have to work hard! They have to put effort into overcoming self-sabotaging behaviours, and take additional action when they're already busy!

Yet we all know that when things are fun people are more engaged, they achieve more, learn faster and the learning is stickier! And, of course, engaged clients refer to us more and stay with us longer...

These Powerful Coaching Tools do Quadruple duty:

  1. Supercharge your coaching sessions
  2. Inspiring client homework
  3. Use for a professional welcome packet
  4. Handout in your webinars, seminars or workshops.

Coaching Tools also help you shine in prospect and corporate meetings - by demonstrating what coaching is in a clearly tangible way.

Victor Granville"When I discovered The Coaching Tools Company website I knew I had found a gold mine. I think Emma-Louise's Toolkits are professional, creative and a great time saver. Using these sheets I've been able to add immense value to the people I work with by providing fun and meaningful "in-between session" work and also using her sheets as a guide during sessions to go deeper. Because these forms are specific to coaching and 'ready to go' I can focus on what I love to do and that's Coach - without needing to use creative energy and time elsewhere. Thanks Emma-Louise!"

- Victor Granville - Communication Skills Coach and Behavioural Specialist

I want your clients to love coaching and rave about you the same way mine do!

And once you start using them in your practice you'll be smitten with the possibilities - just like I was.

"I was recently in a meeting with a prospective client and showed them one of Emma-Louise's coaching tools. She loved it! These coaching tools are such a great addition to my practice. Now I just have to add a couple of points to tailor it to my youth coaching niche and it's saved me hours and hours of work! Thanks Emma-Louise."
