How to Get Started Setting Up a Management System for Your Coaching or Consulting Business
Getting started with setting up a management system for your coaching or consulting business can seem daunting, but it doesn't have to be. Here are a few steps to consider:
- Assess Your Needs: Take some time to identify the types of information and work that you need to manage in your business. This might include things like projects and tasks, sales leads, client information, coaching notes, or standard operating procedures.
- Choose the Right Tools: There are many management tools available, but a simple work management tool like Notion, ClickUp, or Trello can go a long way in organizing all work and information in one place.
- Set Up Your System: Once you've chosen your tools, it's time to start setting up your system. This might include designing an overall structure, creating templates and databases for different kinds of information, and setting up workflows.
- Train Your Team: If you have a team, it's important to make sure everyone is on the same page and knows how to use the management system effectively.
- Review and Refine: As you start using your management system, take note of what's working well and what could be improved. Continuously review and refine your system to ensure it's meeting your needs.

Too Busy to Do it All Alone?
Many coaches and consultants find it challenging to set up a management system due to their busy schedules. That's why I have designed my Premium Suite Program to make setting up a personalized management system on Notion as easy as possible.
The program starts with an audit to understand your needs and prioritize the areas to systemize. Once the audit is complete, I will do the system setup for you so that you don't need to spend countless hours figuring it all out yourself.
Additionally, the program includes comprehensive support to answer any questions you may have about the system or make any necessary adjustments.
Here you can read what my clients have to say about the program.
