Increase Your Value & Your Personal Coach Salary

Do you want more control over your personal coach salary? By understanding and increasing the value you provide to your clients, you have the ability to increase the amount of money you can earn.

Although money shouldn’t be the most important factor in coaching career decisions, it has a big impact on our lives. How much money we earn will dictate the lifestyle we enjoy, and how and when we will retire.

Increase Your Personal Coach Salary by Giving Value

Here are five ways to start increasing the value you provide to your clients and ultimately, the personal coach salary that you earn.

Specialize in a new coaching area. Research upcoming trends in the coaching industry or find an area of weakness in the industry and establish yourself as an expert. It may require additional education, training, or certifications, but if you are the go-to coach for all related matters, you become a valuable personal coach.

Make a direct impact on your clients’ lives. The sole purpose of every coach is to make life better for others. Come up with a new way to service your existing client base to create a new income stream. You can also implement new practices that will allow your clients to get the results they desire. Calculate the impact you have on their lives and your value will be evident.

Be professional at all times. Although it sounds like a no-brainer, it can be easy to get caught up in office politics. Rise above the pettiness that can occur when a group of coworkers indulge in office politics. Negative attitudes can significantly lower the production of an organization. Participating in trivial activities can impact your performance as a personal coach and limits your opportunities for advancement.

Do something different. The danger of having a routine is that you do not leave your comfort zone. Playing it safe doesn’t produce the WOW effect. Expand your focus and start taking calculated risks to drastically increase your coaching results. Don’t be afraid to speak up in meetings with your clients and come up with new and different ideas that will bring a fresh approach to achieving their goals.

Know your market value. It’s important to keep abreast of changes in the coaching market. Become familiar with reports and websites that provide updated salary data, know what the competition is getting, and evaluate your company’s coaching fee policies. Armed with this information, you will be better equipped to offer a better coaching package for your clients.

A personal coach’s salary is a complicated subject. Getting paid more money isn’t something that can be accomplished overnight. Most organizations or individuals have a budget for training and development. Put yourself in their shoes for a minute. Is the value you provide to the client worth more or less than other personal coaches in the market? Once you take your emotion out of the salary equation, you can objectively create a plan to start getting paid what you are truly worth.
