Our education on personal evolution as a coach is based on integrative philosophies of living healthily and successfully as a human. We draw from a wide range of schools of thought to support coaches in having a foundation of working with not only clients, but with themselves in the partnership. Some influences include: Humanistic & Developmental psychologies (Maslow, Rogers, Kegan, etc), Ontology (mind/body/spirit) NLP, Neuroscience and more. We are holistic in our approach to educating coaches so that they can be aware of who a client is on many levels, inside and out. This to create a strong platform for sustainable, Transformational Coaching and change (versus transactional, problem/solution work).
Our students work individually and collaboratively, honing the essential communication skills that will enable them to effectively engage in a coach approach to relating in all that they do. We do this by providing a strong curriculum and:
- Safe and curious classroom environs
- Critical thinking and experiential exercises
- Individual fulfillment and self-reflective assignments
- Self-directed and experiential learning
- Our 9 Guiding Principles and Personal / Professional Foundation Philosophies
Our standards include adherence to the International Coaching Federations Core Coaching Competencies, Code of Conduct, Ethics and stance on diversity, inclusion, belonging and justice. These filters align with our values of integrity, quality, compassion, wisdom and inspiration.
