tools and resources for the inner circle

Accountability Buddies

This may very well be one of the strongest elements of the Inner Circle!

Every Inner Circle coach gets a complete Accountability Buddy training – which means that when you begin working with your buddy, you will both have clear boundaries, guidelines and schedules to give and receive the highest level of coaching, support and success.

QMWD tools

Your focus and your habits are two keys to your success and growth this year.

So, you'll be getting consistent support and accountability on a quarterly, monthly, weekly, and daily basis. 

The vault gives you easy access to these tools to help you stay focused and adopt the healthy habits that will support the goals and intentions you've set for yourself this year.


Ever feel like you’ve got so much to do that you’re scattered, distracted, and don't even know where to start?

Yeah. It’s called Overwhelm. And truthfully, it’s one of the THE greatest challenges of being a coach.

I want to address this issue head-on and share the tool that has literally changed my life. I believe it’s going to be a game-changer for you, too.

This is where you begin to manage your power, coach yourself, and filter your experiences with wisdom. This is huge.

Let’s get to it…


Here's a tool you can use to plan out each month

1. Schedule 30 minutes within the next week to sketch out your month.
2. Show up for some accountability each month in our private Facebook group.
3. Let us know your biggest priority or one thing you've got planned for the month ahead.

How did your month go?

It's important to reflect on how things went so you can make the adjustments you need to make to stay on course with the goals and intentions you've set.

1. Schedule 30 minutes to build awareness and tap into the power of your focus and reflection.
2. Share the biggest highlight or accomplishment from your month with everyone in the Inner Circle Facebook group.


Every 90-days is a great time to pause long enough to reflect on what's gone well, what hasn't gone well, and get clear on what you want to focus in on over the next 90 days.

Listen to this recording I made to walk you through each step of the way.

Stay tuned...we'll do this together at the summit in 2018.

general tools 

Clean conversations tool 

Do you ever walk into conversations already assuming what the outcome will be? Do you ever make up stories about people and what they might be thinking and feeling about you? Sure, we all do this from time to time.

What would happen if you took a few minutes to get clear on how you'd like the conversation to go?

Use this tool to gain clarity before you have a conversation with someone. Figure out what you'd like the ideal outcome of the conversation to be - so you can work towards that. Tease out any assumptions you're taking into the conversation that might actually get in the way. Set an intention for who you want to be and how you'd like to feel.

Leadership Scorecard

There are plenty of coaches who place all of their focus on the x's and o's of their sport. There are plenty of people out there who think if you can provide the perfect training plan, warmup, and game plan for your athletes then everything should fall into place.

That strategy might look good on paper...and it never actually pencils out.

I believe it's crucial for coaches to focus on what some people call the 'soft skills'. I really think it's the 'soft skills' that are going to get you those 'hard results' you and you're athletes looking in sport.

Utilize this tool from time to time as a self-assessment for yourself as a leader. What are your strengths and where can you grow? Do you have any questions about this? Bring to one of our coaching calls.
