Coaching others to play better…Coach Dave Buck Master Certified Coach

Will change the world.”

Hello there!

Coach Dave here with you!

TEAM CoachVille is a global community of Professional Coaches,
Coach Approach Leaders and people who aim to play BIG in life.

As a member of TEAM CoachVille…
You will enjoy the rich history of Life Coaching from our archive
including the genius of Thomas Leonard – the founding father of Life Coaching.
And you will participate in creating our BRIGHT FUTURE.

TEAM CoachVille is basically a gamified, crowd sourced, resource center, podcast and community of awesomeness for Coaches.

If you are fast decision maker and you already know you want to do this…

Here is my 4 minute invitation
for YOU to join TEAM CoachVille.

Coaching, YOU and Love!

If you have a BIG DREAM to become a great coach
If you just had a spark of curiosity about it
If you have already had some coach training
If you have been a coach for 20+ years (like me),
you will LOVE TEAM CoachVille.

If you are into Life Coaching in any of its forms…
business, leadership, health, personal growth etc.
or if you are a performing arts coach or an athletic coach
you will LOVE TEAM CoachVille.

If you are a TEAM player… a contributor
and if you have the “Rebel with a cause” spirit
because you hate the status quo or dumb rules
or ANYTHING that holds a human back from playing BIG and loving life
you will LOVE TEAM CoachVille

and we will LOVE to have YOU on our TEAM.

Together we are in the Pursuit of Humanity Playing Better.
Because that is what Coaching is all about.

Humanity, Coaching and CoachVille

Humanity is playing again
The Industrial Age of Work and Consumption was DE-Humanizing
The Connected Age of Purpose and Play is RE-Humanizing

Human evolution is accelerating; human consciousness is expanding… FAST
there is a LOT of turbulence in the world and a lot of possibilities!

When people PLAY they are creative, resourceful, resilient and JOYFUL
They CARE about each other – even in competition –
AND they care about the Earth (our playing field)
PLAY brings out the best in people.

Coaching hits the BIG time
The field of Life Coaching came into existence 20 years ago.
Coaching is both a catalyst of this global transformation of Purpose and Play
AND a massive beneficiary at the same time.

Forbes is calling Professional Coaching a $1+ Billion / year field.
That is 10,000 Professional Coaches earning $100,000 / year (in that ball park)
We have finally hit the BIG TIME!

CoachVille plays a significant role
This remarkable growth is happening in part due to the thought leadership provided by the CoachVille Community.
We were the first online community for coaches when we started in the year 2000
with the purpose to improve the quality of coaching world wide.
Thomas Leonard – the founder of Professional Life Coaching AND the founder of CoachVille –
called the CoachVille Community an “Open Source R&D Team”.
We gather, co-create and share advanced coaching, life and business concepts.

We now have 38,000+ members world wide. WOW!

We also have one of the first Coach Training programs in the world:
(and still the most innovative)
The Center for Coaching Mastery.
We now have 4,000 students and alumni.
Imagine all the people our students have coached!
That is a LOT of transformation.

TEAM CoachVille is the next generation

It is an online, connected and collaborative community for coaches.

Through the power of our multi-media game platform
Together we explore AND CO-CREATE
leading edge concepts of coaching, business and Human Possibility.
We have 18 years worth of resources to share with you
AND you can be a part of creating our next game-changing resource!

As a TEAM CoachVille Member YOU have the opportunity to
share insights from your life, business and coaching experiences
that contribute to the evolution of the field of Coaching, our TEAM
and our pursuit of Humanity Playing Better.

You know something is happening and you want to be a part of it…
that is why you clicked through to this web page in the first place.

NOW is the time to jump in… ALL IN!

Have another 4 minutes?
This next part is really juicy…

Coaching is...

  1. A profound personal relationship
  2. Wherein the coach guides the player
  3. In pursuit of playing better
  4. Through perceptive observation
  5. And life-changing conversation.

5 things. Simple. Clear. Compelling. Profound.

Why coaching matters…

The global transformation:

From the Industrial Age of Work and Consumption
TO the Connected Age of Purpose and Play

To understand why the field of coaching is so vibrant right now…

A quick look at 4 P’s: Purpose – Play – Personhood – Performance
And 1 BIG F: FREEDOM

PURPOSE
There has to be more to life than this!
 Yes, there is.

You have a BIG DREAM in your heart. WE all do. There is something that you are here to do BUT you are not supposed to do it alone. Life is NOT a game of solitaire. Life is a TEAM game.

Coaching always begins with shared purpose. Always.

To go out in the world in pursuit of your DREAM you must venture beyond the safe, beyond mere survival. You need a great coach – who shares your DREAM – by your side.

And if you have something to share or the desire to lead others then you need to learn how to coach.

PLAY
There has to be a better way to live! Yes, there is.

The Spirit of play brings forth the very best of our humanity. When we play we are creative, resourceful, resilient, collaborative and connected. When we play we enjoy life more and contribute better value to others.

There are 3 frameworks for life that evoke the spirit of play every day:
Life is a performance art.
Life is a game/sport
Life is an epic quest

Coaching and play go together like hand in glove.
You can only coach someone who is playing AND has the desire to play better.

PERSONHOOD
I know that I have more to give to life! Yes, you do.

The Industrial Age was dehumanizing. You know… just do your job; fit in, don’t make any mistakes
We were all a replaceable cog in the wheel of production.
(DON’T get me started on this or it will take WAY more than 4 minutes!)

Now we are all beautifully YOUnique players… playing life.
We each have a set of Super Powers to unleash and a life story that fuels us to play better… to create and contribute more.

Coaching is a personal and profound relationship between the coach and the player in pursuit of playing better.
It is not “one-size-fits-all” information.

As a Coach you transform your personal life experiences into a powerful contribution to the life of another person.

PERFORMANCE
I want to get really good at this! Yes, you can.

Every day is an opportunity to change the world for the better. Performance is where it all comes together. This is your Younique contribution to life.

As a coach you guide the players daily pursuit of mastery and results through perceptive observations and life-changing conversations. And by serving as the guide, you make your Younique contribution to life.

FREEDOM!
I want to live and contribute on my own terms! Yes, you can.

Play is only possible when we are free! Free to express, to explore, to fail and to free to learn.

Creative freedom,
Lifestyle freedom, and
Financial freedom
are all possible now more than ever.

The economy is opening up every day for those who find a YOUnique way to contribute to others.

If you can embrace the responsibility of financial freedom you can enjoy the benefits of lifestyle and creative freedom.

Coaching can open up these pathways for you…
AND as a coach you will guide others to create their own pathway to success in the Connected Age.

When you join TEAM CoachVille (which is free)

You will have immediate access to the core concepts of our curriculum
(much that has been co-created by our amazing member community)
All within the CoachVille game platform (more about that later)
You will be invited to monthly DEEP DIVE conversations where we connect and learn.

Here are just a few of the concepts you will learn right away…

  • 7 Reasons why coaching is in demand.
  • A collection of stories from real coaches and how they got their coaching spark
  • How to see life as a game: From your Comfort Zone into your Super Power Zone
  • Recordings of Thomas Leonard: the founder of Professional Life Coaching and CoachVille
  • The 10 Essential elements of REAL Coaching
  • There is so much more… but if I tried to explain it all it would create “instant overwhelm”.
    So instead…
  • NEW insights, resources and concepts will be added every week!

Becoming a great coach Is WAY harder than it looks!

You may be a “natural coach” which is great;
you may have done some coach training with another program (also great).

You probably know how incredibly difficult it is to make a significant upgrade in your own life.
You have experienced the failure, the frustration, the sleepless nights. I hope you have.
If everything in your life has been smooth sailing, then you will be a terrible coach and you should dismiss the idea straight away.

But if you have experienced the trauma and the overwhelm of every day life, then you know just how profoundly difficult it is AND how enormously rewarding it can be when you can be a positive influence in the life of another person.

Becoming a great coach is an art… it is a quest in pursuit of mastery.

At CoachVille we have been gathering and guiding amazing folks like you – true leaders in life – for 18 years and counting.

Together we are in pursuit of humanity playing better!

If you want to be a part of the most energizing coaching community in the world…

If you are ready to contribute AND benefit from this incredible collaborative environment…

Then we want you on our TEAM!
