Cliché words in the coaching space may leave your potential clients rolling their eyes and disengaged.

This week, we're sharing a lively discussion on breaking free from the 20 most overused and cringe-worthy language. We'll share alternative words to use instead and offer suggestions to make your content more engaging and exciting for your audience.

We promise this conversation is anything but boring!

But why stop at language? It's time to step outside of the box when it comes to marketing your coaching practice too! We recently attended the Mystik Market, and Alanna discovered firsthand the impact of attending live events and showcasing her hidden talent, palm reading. By stepping out of her comfort zone, she introduced her coaching to new people and reignited her passion for the work – and we'll tell you exactly how you can do the same.

Speaker 1:

All right, listeners, go ahead and get your torches, your pitchforks, your implements of outrage, because this week we're going to talk about overused cliches in the coaching space, particularly specific words that people use, that are so commonly used that they've either lost meaning or they just grind people's gears, to put it plainly. And we're going to talk about what those words are And I bet you've been using a lot of them if you are a coach. But before we get into that, there is something else we want to talk about, because last weekend Alana and I crossed paths in Toronto at the Mystic Market.

Speaker 2:

Alana, Yeah, the Mystic Market. It was such a fun market to be part of And I was actually reading poems there. I just sauntered in Yeah, you were just hanging out.

Speaker 1:

I got a latte.

Speaker 2:

You met some people.

Speaker 1:

Yeah.

Speaker 2:

Got your poem read.

Speaker 1:

Got my poem read.

Speaker 2:

I've just been kind of on a bit of a high since Sunday because poem reading is relatively new for me And this opportunity kind of just came out of nowhere. It was such a great opportunity to just get out there and be in public and in person with people, rather than like behind Zoom, and introduce myself and my work to a new audience, a bunch of people who probably would never have come across me had I not been at this market. So I just wanted to let everybody know that's listening. If there's some kind of hidden talent you have or something that you may not think is related to coaching, that you could go out there and do a live event or participate in something, do it, because it's a really great way to meet a different type of person and introduce your work to new people. So think outside the box is basically what I'm saying when it comes to marketing your business, like, yes, social media is amazing, investigating markets or, i don't know, different opportunities in your city is a really great way to gain exposure, and also just like, light you up. I feel like it just gave me sort of this new, renewed energy when it comes to the work that I do and just meeting new people, and I think we've been in this kind of like post COVID hangover of wanting to go out but then being so comfortable on Zoom right. Yeah, it's almost like we forgot about these live events and these fun things that you can go and do.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, either to attend them as an attendee or to just get a table and be part of the event. There's less of a barrier of entry than people might think.

Speaker 2:

Yeah.

Speaker 1:

For a lot of these shows and markets and stuff, and if you got something to market or you got something to share, consider it.

Speaker 2:

Well, even for hypnosis or even coaching, honestly, you could have had, someone could have easily had just a coaching table there too.

Speaker 1:

Yeah.

Speaker 2:

Where you were doing, maybe quick hypnosis, or maybe you're a Reiki person, or maybe you do stuff with crystals, i don't know. Just put it out there. Think inside the box.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, love it. Yeah, it was a good time Cool.

Speaker 2:

Especially with summer coming. I'm thinking about starting to read poems just at Trinity Bellwood's Park on the weekends. It's so busy there.

Speaker 1:

I just could go Put in a little plaque.

Speaker 2:

Put in a big carpet.

Speaker 1:

You know, sit there Big blanket. Yeah, that'd be cool. Yeah, yeah, all right Cool. So shall we talk about these controversial words.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, i'm super excited about this, yeah.

Speaker 1:

Some of them are coaching specific and some of them are general online business and entrepreneurship. It's a good list.

Speaker 2:

It is. I'm calling this the thesaurus episode.

Speaker 1:

Yeah.

Speaker 2:

Because, as we go through these words and talk about them, i think we should also give suggestions of words you could use to replace these words, because, really, you know, it's easy to get into the trap of using these cliche words which we're going to talk about.

Speaker 1:

Yeah.

Speaker 2:

Because it's just sort of like you know you're in the mode of creating your content and it's just. Those are the easy words to grasp. But one thing that's going to really help you stand out and is going to help you look different or maybe make people stop and think, because a lot of our reading, when it comes to like reading the stuff on social media, is subconscious, right. So we're just like reading and like we're expecting to see these words from the coaches that we're following or healers that we're following. But when you read something and there's different language, that's almost like a pattern interrupt, right, like it's sort of like oh, that's an interesting word. I've never, you know, you're not used to seeing it, so then you pay attention.

Speaker 1:

Yeah.

Speaker 2:

So that's also why I think it's important that we talk about this today, because it's not just about cliche words and, you know, using those things, but it's about, like, how can you create content that is more engaging and more interesting for people to listen to or watch, and this is actually really would probably be really effective for video.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, absolutely.

Speaker 2:

Right.

Speaker 1:

Cool, okay, all right, good points. Okay. Word number one Transformation.

Speaker 2:

Yeah.

Speaker 1:

Transformation used very frequently, very frequently. And, by the way, i mean, as you hear these words, take it with a grain of salt. If you like these words and you want to use them, you do whatever you want.

Speaker 2:

You can do whatever you want.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, Just be mindful that you know a lot of them have become cliches at this point. But transformation is one we see a lot And a lot of the words on this list are going to be what's called nominalizations, which means it's a noun, but it's something that's more of a theory than a regular noun, which would be an object Like. Transformation is an intangible thing, It is a concept.

Speaker 2:

Right Yeah.

Speaker 1:

So something to be mindful of.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, And honestly, I think the word transformation can sort of feel a little bit confronting for some people, especially if they're just getting into the coaching space, Like do I want to be transformed? Like yeah, that's true.

Speaker 1:

Like is this word going to even resonate with a regular person who is not, you know, a coach if that's who you're serving, which most coaches don't serve other coaches? Most coaches serve people who are looking for specific results, right? So, a lot of these words are understood and appeal to people who are in the coaching industry, And if that's you but not your clients, that's another sign that you may want to be mindful of how often you're using this language.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, like it's almost like, as the coach, we're projecting our experience of being coached because most likely, you have been through a transformation. But is that actually what you wanted when you started? Probably not.

Speaker 1:

Yeah.

Speaker 2:

Exactly.

Speaker 1:

Cool, love it. We got 19 more on this list, so we got to move quick. Number two authenticity. All right, it's probably a really good idea to have authenticity and to be authentic, but not to call out your authenticity by telling people here's why I'm authentic, or this, that or the other. Keep harping on the word authenticity, which is also a nominalization. Right, and it's okay to use nominalizations, by the way, but it's a concept, right, And it's abstract, and the thing about nominalizations is that different people will interpret them in different ways always.

Speaker 2:

Yeah.

Speaker 1:

Right, there's no. You know, when we talk about a noun like a car, there's a pretty standard definition of what is a car, right, people might have slightly different you know imagery in their mind when you say that word, but we're all thinking of the same thing. When you say authenticity, everybody's going to have a different concept internally of what you're, what you're meaning, right. So it creates ambiguity as well, in addition to being a cliche.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, So I mean what I take from that is really, if you're going to use that word, for example, or you're going to use any of these nominalizations, you should really define what that means to you so that your audience understands what you mean when you're using that word or those words.

Speaker 1:

Yeah.

Speaker 2:

Mindset, mindset.

Speaker 1:

Mindset matters everybody. It really does. But this word mindset, yeah, definitely used very frequently And again, you know it's going to appeal maybe to people who already understand why their mindset is so important in getting results. And you got to determine if that's your client, if that's your niche or not. Like this, yeah, mindset this one's an interesting one because it's not a bad word and it is something that we do need to be mindful of. But maybe get a little bit more specific if you're going to be talking about mindset. This one I don't really have too much of an objection to The next word on the list empowerment. This one really is the danger zone if you're selling empowerment Because a lot of coaches are selling empowerment and not a lot of clients are looking to buy empowerment. This is where we see a real mismatch here, because ultimately, what people want from coaching is a specific result, and rarely is that specific result, even if you know it's empowerment. Rarely is the potential client thinking in their mind I wish I were more empowered. What they're thinking in their mind is I wish I had more money, i wish I was healthier or I wish I had more love or better relationships in my life. Those specific things or variations thereof, yeah, those things will be the byproduct of empowerment, but a lot of clients aren't going to get that, and this is so abstract of a concept that if that's what you're selling or there's this little cliche, i help people step into their power. Which is obviously attached to empowerment. A lot of people have that messaging and it doesn't appeal very much to a very wide audience.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, because what does that mean? Step into your power? I mean I'm guilty right here Because I've said it before. I've probably got tons of content if you scroll back far enough in my Instagram feed where I've talked about stepping into your power. Yeah, it's like jumping from your head into your heart and getting grounded in your knowing.

Speaker 1:

You're knowing. Yeah, of course. Again, we're not saying don't use these words. We're just saying remember that they may not resonate with people the way you might be imagining, or you might be so used to using them in the company of other coaches that you forget that you sound weird when you say this stuff to regular people.

Speaker 2:

Yeah Well, the conversation I've been having a lot lately with people is, rather than using these big abstract words, really think about the tangible. What can you teach that's very tangible? What can you communicate that's very tangible for a regular person who's not a coach, who's not been having a journey of self-improvement and self-empowerment? What would you have wanted to learn specifically before you went down this journey or before you started making change to your mindset or whatever you're doing? I think that's really important.

Speaker 1:

Yeah.

Speaker 2:

Being really granular about what you're teaching people and keeping it really simple Like you're really good at that, Ryan in terms of what you teach and how you teach. You get very granular and very simple and can create an hour presentation on something that's just easy. So approach your content from that perspective. Sometimes, too, Yeah Yeah.

Speaker 1:

Let's look at the next two as a pair Clarity and alignment. Clarity and alignment A lot of people talking about clarity and alignment. Again, these are abstract concepts that are at the forefront of the mind of the coach and not necessarily a regular person. This really falls into that empowerment category where it's like nobody's like I really need to find clarity and alignment, coach, so that I can find the job of my dreams. They're thinking I need to find the job of my dreams because I hate my job. Yeah Yeah, That involves getting into alignment and involves finding clarity. But if we're using this language, are we meeting the client where they are?

Speaker 2:

yet, which is something we need to do Yeah, what just popped into my mind is maybe challenge yourself this week to not using any of these words in your content.

Speaker 1:

Yeah.

Speaker 2:

You know and see if you can be a lot, have more clarity in your message by like, just being like I'm not allowed to use these words, and you can have the list in front of you And then once you, and then I think you're gonna notice like how much you're actually using these words. And then maybe think of like, okay, what am I really trying to say here? What's another word I could use to describe this word?

Speaker 1:

That would actually be fun, i'm gonna do that this week We can call it the talk like a normal human challenge. Yeah, yeah, cool, okay, next one.

Speaker 2:

Self-care, self-care, self-care.

Speaker 1:

Self-care. Yeah, so much talk about self-care, where it's like somebody puts a picture of a person sitting on the sofa eating a slice of pizza and it's like self-care And it's like okay, we get it. Yeah, so like does anybody not know that you're allowed to relax Sometimes, Yeah it's okay. It's okay Does anybody in the world not aware that you can sit on the sofa and eat a slice of pizza and drink sparkling wine, cause you can. We don't need to necessarily educate everyone that that's a form of self-care. So much talk about self-care, but I mean it is a good message. So the thing is like when people do those posts, it comes from a place of love? obviously It does, and I can't fault that. But yeah, self-care is a term that gets thrown around quite a bit. Again, it's not wrong or bad, it's just it's thrown around quite a bit.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, too much. Actually, it's really interesting this week. I don't know if someone prominent said this week or not, but it's all about the message, is all about how, if, once you're feeling safe and once you have got to this place in your healing journey and you're feeling safe, then your body is going to be really tired and it's going to want to sleep and rest because it finally feels like it's allowed right. Anyway, every time I open Instagram this week, that is the first message that's popping up and it's coming from like a different coach. So someone at the top of the chain put that message out there, like on Monday morning, and every time I've opened Instagram this well, it's only Tuesday. No, it's to Wednesday.

Speaker 1:

Wednesday.

Speaker 2:

That message keeps popping up and I'm like who set this? Where is everybody copying this content from? So get a different message. I think is the pick your own messages. It's important, obviously, that you can use other people's content as inspiration, but it does get really boring when you're just like reiterating it. You're just like reiterating other people's messages.

Speaker 1:

Yeah.

Speaker 2:

You're original, use your own words, abandon this list of cliches. And then you're going to stand out because people are going to be like oh, i haven't seen that message.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, agreed. Next to journey and breakthrough, and breakthrough.

Speaker 2:

I think I've already said journey a few times. Yeah, this episode.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, i mean, again, they're not bad words. Breakthrough is a common term in NLP because there's a thing, there's a specific process called an NLP breakthrough, and so one of the things that I see some NLP practitioners, particularly some of the more successful ones, doing is they rename that process for their niche to something else. You know, yeah, breakthrough Journey. I mean, yeah, journey's not necessarily a bad word, but yeah, i use it sparingly these days because we're seeing it a lot.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, it's out there.

Speaker 1:

Yeah.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, I renamed. Breakthrough to life amplifier.

Speaker 1:

Yeah. Yeah, for example, which is nice. Yeah, amplifier later on this list of overused words.

Speaker 2:

Is it No? it's not No, it's not Yeah amplifier's not overused yet. It's getting there though.

Speaker 1:

Because of Alana Banks. yeah, It's getting there, okay, sweet.

Speaker 2:

This word I love. I love the word pivot.

Speaker 1:

Pivot yeah, pivot's on the list, but yeah, pivot's not so bad Pivot's a good word? I don't think pivot's necessarily too overused.

Speaker 2:

I don't think so. either I would replace pivot with potency or potent. I think, that's too overused.

Speaker 1:

Pivot, i think, is really highly used in the startup space, like in the tech startup space, like we need to pivot. the investors are putting on the print, but in coaching I don't know if pivot's really overused just yet. And then growth, yeah, growth, growth mindset. There hasn't been a word on this list so far, as I was hoping where it would be like yes, we all need to stop using this word right now. That hasn't been on the list just yet.

Speaker 2:

No, I don't think so either. I mean, I like the word growth.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, growth is good, we want to grow.

Speaker 2:

Evolve. I mean I've been using the word evolve a lot.

Speaker 1:

Yeah.

Speaker 2:

Instead of growth.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, the next on the list. manifestation Manifestation.

Speaker 2:

That's one word I would say Let's just get rid of it.

Speaker 1:

Well, you overused. It's very commonly used these days, but it's actually the word manifestation. I think it's a good polarizer, depending on what you offer and who your niche is, because a lot of people will be immediately turned off by the word manifestation, and that might be a good thing, because if what you sell is law of attraction coaching or spiritual coaching, you might want to use a term like manifestation to repel the people who are not in your niche anyways or not your potential clients anyways, and to as a signal to those who are In your niche. So yeah, manifestation. And then, likewise, you might want to be mindful if what you're offering is not exclusively for people who are of that persuasion. You may want to avoid a word like that, because it will turn off some people, right.

Speaker 2:

Yeah.

Speaker 1:

Yeah.

Speaker 2:

I hear that Oh, abundance.

Speaker 1:

Number 13, abundance. Abundance Is nothing wrong with the word abundance. The reason that this one is in murky waters these days is because of the number of people who have hired abundance coaches and not been led to abundance Yeah. So there's a lot of people out there offering abundance and their clients don't necessarily always receive it. So I think there's a bit of a negative connotation not for everybody, but for some people. I think there's a negative connotation attached to the word abundance or abundance coaching.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, I agree.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, again, it's a poll. That one's a polarizer too. It might work for or it might work against you.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, i would probably lump manifestation and abundance together, because I feel like they kind of go hand in hand.

Speaker 1:

They often will go hand in hand Yeah.

Speaker 2:

Yeah.

Speaker 1:

Okay, next is intention.

Speaker 2:

I mean you could take the good and the bad with equanimity, You could? That comes to those two words. You, could You could do that Yeah.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, If you were so inclined, if you were keen. Yeah, Number next. What was it Intention?

Speaker 2:

I don't think intention is overused. I love intention.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, it's good to have.

Speaker 2:

I think it's a power word, to be honest.

Speaker 1:

It's a power word We like power words Yeah. Yeah, intention, we're going to give that one a pass. I think Gratitude, gratitude has such a positive connotation that I think it would be hard to really overuse it. It's hard to fault gratitude or talking about gratitude. I don't know. Listeners, you let me know if you think gratitude is overused.

Speaker 2:

I think if it's used with intention it's also important.

Speaker 1:

If it's used with an appropriate intention, because if you're using gratitude as manipulation. Okay Yeah, gratitude as manipulation.

Speaker 2:

Well, if you're over overtly grateful for something, I think sometimes that can come off as Oh yeah, If you're lying If you're pretending to be grateful and you're not.

Speaker 1:

Years ago I had a job where, at the end of the day, regardless of what had happened that day, I had a boss who would shake our hands as we were leaving and be like thanks for all your help. Today And the first few days that was great. And then, inevitably, there were days where things went wrong and people showed up late and everything was bad, And he would still say the exact same thing. And then one day I just realized he just says this regardless of how he feels about how the day went. Then it has no meaning. So that was like fake gratitude Or he was just in the habit of whatever. No judgment against that person. He was a good man. Yeah, Yeah, that was Anyways, oh, number 16. I love it Inner work This one definitely deserves to be on the list Inner work. You got to do the inner work, folks. The reason you're not getting results is because you're not doing the inner work. Yeah, this one, i know, will rub a lot of people the wrong way, especially people who are trying to better themselves and are feeling frustrated. You come along and imply that they're facing failure because of the inner work that they're not doing or that they need to do. It's kind of like. I think the tricky thing with talking about inner work is that it's really easy to accidentally attach shame to a person when we talk about it.

Speaker 2:

Actually, that's a really important point when it comes to creating content is the tone Right? When you bring up that word shame, it's like you can have it a shameful tone or like a disempowering tone, or you can have a positive, empowering tone. I find, actually, grammarly is really helpful with this, because you can write something and It's almost like you want to reread it from the perspective of maybe somebody who hasn't done a lot of inner work, right, or you know, like you don't want to be putting out content that is shaming people for not having the awareness around, whatever it is that you're talking about, because they might be new to the quote unquote journey, right. So That's something that I learned from Emma Burgess. Actually, she did like a content thing a while back that I attended and she talked a lot about the tone and I thought that was really important. And if you're NLP trained, you know you kind of. You know this already, but it's just an important reminder.

Speaker 1:

Yeah Yeah. The meaning of the communication is the message that's received, not necessarily the message that is sent folks Straight out of NLP.

Speaker 2:

Yeah.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, so be careful with that one. Be careful with inner work.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, or even the work. You know how? people are always talking about doing the work, yeah.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, don't accidentally shame your audience. Yeah, yeah, it's a little bit more of a break. We got four more Purpose. Number 17 is purpose.

Speaker 2:

Also kind of vague.

Speaker 1:

Right, it is vague, it is a nominalization and I think a lot of coaches use this word purpose and tell people you need to find your purpose with the greatest of intention, not realizing how frustrating it can be as a regular person or a potential client to be like find my purpose like so abstract to many people that it's just like overwhelming. I think.

Speaker 2:

It's stressful because what if you're like, at the same time, i think, like I don't think your purpose is something that can be found, and this might this could be like a topic for another day, but I think your purpose is almost presented to you.

Speaker 1:

Yeah Well, I think that's like that's the way to do it to allow your purpose, your why, your niche, etc. allow these things to present themselves to you like go out there and have fun and you know, create what you feel like creating and see how, see where it leads.

Speaker 2:

Exactly. Rather than it's not really something you've lost and you're having to find it.

Speaker 1:

Yeah.

Speaker 2:

Right, like it just hasn't been presented to you yet. So that takes the stress away, whether you look at it from that perspective because you're just like oh well it, it will appear when it's meant to appear.

Speaker 1:

Yeah.

Speaker 2:

Right.

Speaker 1:

Boom, mindfulness is number 18. Depends how you're using it Depends how you're using it. I mean, if you're talking about meditation, it's going to be hard not to talk about mindfulness. Mindfulness is a word. again. this is a word that's going to appeal to people who are initiated in mindfulness already, to people who are, who are, you know, looking for specific results. They may not respond readily to a word like mindfulness. It's very abstract to a lot of people.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, I'm guilty of that. I always say that to my kids. Be mindful about how you blah, blah, blah.

Speaker 1:

Well, i mean, there's a difference between saying be mindful about mindfulness, like be mindful about to me just means think about whatever you're doing Yeah, like be mindful of cars when you're crossing the road, like, which just means it's a nice way of saying remember there's traffic, don't get hit. Yeah, versus mindfulness will keep you safe as you journey through the streets searching for your purpose. Right Now, we're like they're going to be like mom, what the heck are you talking about? Um, which is a question, perhaps, elena, thanks, you're pretty good for anyways. Um, last we're last two. We got balance. Find your balance. Everyone.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, i mean, there is no balance in my opinion.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, there's new balance. There is quality running shoes.

Speaker 2:

But there's really no balance, is there not?

Speaker 1:

See, this is the thing The balance is. It means a different thing to every person. Yeah, Okay. And it's over there like there's no balance and I'm over here like I'm swimming in balance, you know.

Speaker 2:

Yeah. Um I feel like there's priorities. When I think of the word balance, I think of priorities.

Speaker 1:

That's a quote right there, everybody. There is no balance.

Speaker 2:

There are no priorities ElanaBanksCoachingcom. Is that a new mug?

Speaker 1:

Maybe it's a travel mug.

Speaker 2:

Oh, I like it.

Speaker 1:

Maybe it's a beer stein.

Speaker 2:

There we go.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, yeah.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, i. when I see the word balance, i think priorities.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, there you go, i like that. Okay, last one on the list. Yeah, this one's a hot button phrase. Yeah, self discovery, self discovery. That's another one, that that's a polarizer. Some people will like that, some people will not like that or not understand it and be turned off. Self discovery.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, that one is another confronting word similar to transformation, because some people are like I don't want to go inside and discover myself.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, Like that can be threatening. It depends on you know what's your vibe right Like. if something's like looking for coaching because they want to like add another zero to their you know laundromat business, you're like well, we just need to work on your self discovery, It might not like, it might not jive.

Speaker 2:

That's not going to land, yeah, yeah.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, but in some contexts it will. It will appeal to people. So I think that's the answer for all of these words Like consider the context and just consider your audience too Right. The context in your audience and how these are going to be interpreted by the people who want to serve. Yeah Right.

Speaker 2:

Yeah.

Speaker 1:

Yeah.

Speaker 2:

Like, if your clients are, you know, really into like shamanic journeys and you know going deep into the subconscious mind and all that stuff, then some of these words are perfect for that type of audience. But if you're promoting your business to like a bunch of newbies who are just getting started with their personal development, then you want to be gentle with the words. I think.

Speaker 1:

Or Yeah, unless you know there's exceptions too, unless you're appealing to newbies who are, like, really into the jargon and are excited for all these weird new words. Right, so there's no rules. Figure it out, you know. See what the test, see what works, see what people respond to see what they don't.

Speaker 2:

Yeah.

Speaker 1:

And go from there.
