During International Coaching Week, February 7-11, I thoroughly enjoyed meeting with prospective and new Christian coaches. I offered complimentary coaching or consulting sessions to those here in the Christian Coaching Resources community. Some shared their interest in becoming coaches had questions about establishing new careers and ministries.  Others were newly trained coaches with questions about starting a business or ministry. Still others were established coaches who were thinking through new directions for their coaching.  With these and other International Coaching Week events, it was a busy time!

Twelve complimentary appointments were offered on a first-come first-served basis.  How were the appointments scheduled?  I used an online scheduling tool that I enthusiastically recommend.

The scheduler at TimeTrade is the best scheduling tool I’ve come across. It’s easy for me to use and easy for those scheduling appointments with me.  Once I set up an event, I get a link to post online or include in emails.  Those that want to schedule with me can click on the link, follow the instructions and choose from the times available.  The system confirms the appointment, notifies me, and sends a timely reminder to the person scheduled.  To check it out, sign up for a free 30-day trial account.  If you decide you like it, it’s an excellent value at $29.95 per year.

If you’re wondering – I’m not receiving anything from TimeTrade for posting about this. I am just sharing what has worked for me in hopes it might be helpful to you.

Let me know if you have recommendations for other scheduling tools that work well.
