Why Coaching Will Transform Your Speaking Career

With The Speaker Lab Coaches

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to sit down with some of our coaches and take a deep dive into some of the hottest topics for speakers? Wonder no more! Our Coaches Corner series gives you actionable advice and practical insights from our coaches that you can use right now to grow your speaking business.

For Episode 416 of The Speaker Lab Podcast our Director of Student Success, Maryalice Goldsmith, and our Elite Concierge, Katie Campbell, are continuing the conversation from Episode 414 (Check it out!) and taking a closer look at how to maximize coaching and get out of your own way! During their first episode together, they reviewed marketable assets that every speaker needs, and intertwined into each of those was the support that a coach can provide through the process. This week, Maryalice and Katie are back with a closer look at the benefit of coaching and how it can help you take things to the next level.

Maryalice and Katie highlight the grit and courage it takes to take on speaking full-time and how to intentionally prioritize each step on the journey to making an impact with your message. Katie shares some of her personal journey to the stage, and what she’s learned about focusing on her passion and serving her specific audience. There’s something here for every speaker in any season!

Here’s what you’ll learn from this episode:

  • Why your message can’t help everyone
  • Why narrowing your focus creates more opportunity
  • How do you define expert?
  • Why clarity in your language matters so much
  • Talking about what lights you up
  • Combining strategy and storytelling
  • And much more!
