In this fascinating episode of Coaching Uncaged, Animas Centre Director Robert Stephenson is joined by business and life coach, author of more than 30 books including The Prosperous Coach and founder of the Coaching Prosperity School, Steve Chandler.
Steve shares how he came to write The Prosperous Coach with fellow coach Rich Litvin, as well as touching on the thinking and processes behind some of his other popular literature, sharing that the majority of his books were created through a desire to serve others, and the permission to play, experiment and be creative.
Steve details the personal journey, including the challenges, that led him to coaching, following careers in the music industry, journalism and corporate training, before setting up the Coaching Prosperity School 14 years ago.
Robert and Steve touch on some of the anxieties and challenges around starting out as a new coach, including a tendency to personalise common occurrences such as potential clients not wanting to work with us, and offers takeaways from his own experience around these challenges to help coaches to reframe limiting beliefs touching on what he calls a ‘not yet list’.
Steve also speaks on not needing to have a North Star goal - and if you do that it’s OK if it changes, the place for social media and marketing within coaching, and the importance of building relationships and real connection among those that we work with, as well as sharing what’s next for him around coaching, writing and speaking on the topics that really interest him.

The Coaching Supervision Podcast - Theory and Practice Brought to Life
If you're a coach or coaching supervisor, this podcast is for you.
Combining short reflections on practice issues facing coaches and interviews with leading coaching supervisors, the podcast takes you on a journey in to the practice of coaching supervision.
As a coach, the podcast serves to develop your "internal supervisor" - that quiet voice that helps you make sense of your practice, notice in the moment and deepen your practice through positive self-questioning.
As a supervisor, the podcast will explore a wide range of supervision concepts and contexts that might enable new ways to work, point to resources and books to explore and examine how supervision shows up in different ways.
This is the world's first podcast dedicated to coaching supervision and the art of becoming a truly reflective coach.
We hope you enjoy the episodes.
