Where can I get help?
Tell us what you think
Where should I start first?
Every time you login, you will arrive at your personal ‘My Home’ page. It updates in real-time with group posts or posts by coaches you follow.
You can post whatever is on your mind on your personal space. However, only ‘your friends’ will receive notification of this.
Specialist interest groups are the centre of activity of ConnectedCoaches. Groups will continue to spring up as members reveal the challenges they face.
Videos are a key part of every group.
There are five video types:
You can also browse forums, blogs, pictures and posts in each group. And as a group member, you can participate in conversations; add your thoughts, photos and videos on the topic.
So join groups that interest you straight away so you don’t miss out. New posts in groups you have joined will appear on your personal ‘My Home’ page next time you log-in.
Use the search box to find coaches you know. Or to view a list of all members, go to people in the Welcome and General Group.
You can send other members a private message or you can request them as a ‘Friend’. Your Friends’ activity will appear on your personal ‘My Home’ page and vice versa.
This is a coach-to-coach site. Indeed, the future of ConnectedCoaches will depend upon on members’ levels of activity. So we want you to contribute.
Remember, we do not review your contributions before they are published. So please don't break the Participation Guidelines when you post.
Here are some ideas on how to get started.
Discuss - ask or respond to questions in group forums.
Please note, when you participate in a conversation you will be presented with editing functions which are usually reserved for website managers. We choose to make them available to give you the option to format fonts or include photos, links etc But please don’t be put off by them. You don’t need to use them. You can simply type in the box and submit.
Share a video: Videos are a great learning aid for coaches. Coaches learn most by watching others in action but they don’t often get the opportunity.
So why not be the bold one and take the first step? Ask someone to video you in action using a particular coaching technique. Or video yourself talking about your coaching story and post it to your personal space so other members can get to know you.
Photos: take a snap of your coaching plan or your flipchart doodlings and share it with the community.
Blogs: if you are interested in contributing a regular blog, please get in touch.
We award you points every time you contribute. You earn more for contributing in forums and adding content rather than posting comments. Earning points bring you closer to achieving the next ranking category.The five categories are:
All other members will be able to view your points and ranking.
We plan to award the annual ConnectedCoaches prize to the coach who supports other coaches and makes the greatest contributions. Our aspiration is that the prize be used to fund an innovative and bold coaching project that will make a real difference.
We take the privacy of your data very seriously. We won’t ever display your email address and we don’t ask you to enter your address or telephone number.
We won’t ever sell your details to a third party.
We send four types of emails:
If you encounter any problems with the site, do report bugs and issues in our forum so our team can fix them. Or if you can’t work out how to do something take a look at the FAQs on the site help page.
Your views are important to us. It is your views and experiences that will help shape the community.
Firstly, we urge you vote in our survey on: what are the most important challenges facing you as a coach right now?
Once you have used the site, we would warmly welcome your views in our feedback and suggestions forum.
Follow our four easy steps on the Getting Started page.
We hope you enjoy ConnectedCoaches. We hope you learn, get support and have fun here.
