Update 12/22/14: We’re hiring coaches. Click here for the most recent information about how to become a Lift coach.
Do you have a skill or expertise that you’d like to share with the Lift community?
Starting today, you can create a Plan on Lift to help others achieve goals that you’ve already mastered. Plans are guides that tell you the daily steps to take to reach a goal. Writing one takes about as long as writing a good blog post. Let me walk you through it.
What’s a coaching plan?
In Lift, a coaching plans give you daily instructions to help you reach your goals. Followers of a plan will see the first instruction on Day 1 and unlock the next instruction each time that they check-in. Here are some examples:
- Six Weeks to a Half Marathon for runners in training
- Stop Saying Um for people who want to be better at public speaking
- Build a Meditation Practice in 21 days for folks new to meditation
What are you great at? What change have you made that you’re proud of? What skill do you have that you could teach someone else?
You can share your plan with your friends whenever you want. But we’re also looking to feature high quality plans with the entire Lift community. After you create your first draft, you may hear from us with suggestions. This is what we’re looking for:
- A specific goal with clear instructions to get you there. Be sure to explain terms that the average person wouldn’t know.
- Coaches who can be active and responsive to feedback from people taking the plan.
- Small actionable steps. Lift is based on momentum. Write your plan in a way that builds from something small to something large.
