Me To Coaching
Give The Gift Of Coaching
Called Me To Coaching?
people ask me how I found out about coaching and what started me on
this path. Iím going to try to give you a simple response to this transition.
came upon coaching at the National Wellness Conference in July, 2001,
at a day long session presented by Dr.
Within minutes of hearing what coaching was about, I knew without a
doubt that this was the concept I had been searching for. I couldnít
think of anything that would fit better with my personality and background
in health promotion/wellness. It would allow me to positively impact
people and to have the type of lifestyle I had hoped for.
soon discovered that coaching is one of the fastest growing professions.
You can find out more about coaching on my website www.WholeLifeVisions.com
I decided that coaching was the direction I wanted to pursue, I began
taking the steps to get me there. Most of my spare time outside of my
full-time job was spent developing my own business and gathering information
about coaching programs. I linked with other coaches and people who
could support me on this adventure.
Whole Life Visions became official. What a coincidence that my P.O.
Box is 1101! In December, I attended Coaching for Excellence through
CorePath (A New Ventures West introductory course). Shortly after this
training I began The Newfield Networkís Coaching for Professional and
Personal Mastery Program.
9 month program is accredited by the International Coach Federation
and is designed with the high standards necessary to establish coaching
as a profession. I attended three national conferences in Washington,
and one regional conference in Chicago,
between, I worked in small groups by e-mail and teleconferences and
completed monthly learning guides. In addition, I was guided by
a Master Certified
Network Mentor Coach . Now
that the course is complete, I will be seeking certification from The
Newfield Network and from The International Coach Federation (ICF).
This has been one of the most amazing, indescribable life changing
is the professional
association of personal and business coaches that seeks to preserve
the integrity of coaching around the globe. They are the largest non-profit
professional association worldwide of personal and business coaches
with more than 5000 members and 179 chapters in 30 countries.
September, 2002, I moved on from my job and now dedicate my days to
coaching with wonderful people, doing workshops and consulting. To say
the least, the past year and a half have brought many changes and a
new life that is rewarding and challenging. It hasnít been easy but
itís definitely one of the best things Iíve ever done. Thanks again
to everyone for their support, encouragement and understanding! I love
coaching and believe itís one of the best avenues toward personal growth
and development. ††
you have a life Ė you can benefit from a coach. If you donít have a
life Ė then you really need a coach! As a coach, I offer people one
of the most sincere relationships they will ever have. In this partnership
they can create the life they love and live the life they create. At
times, I show them a perspective they havenít seen or donít want to
see. This helps people design their life so that they can achieve what
would be honored to share this information with you and others.
So, donít hesitate to invite me to come to your next staff meeting or
one of my requirements for certification is that I submit 2 taped coaching
sessions to be reviewed by their board. Are you interested? All I ask
is that you be open to the possibilities to take advantage of this opportunity
to learn about yourself, others and coaching. If itís not something
you would consider for yourself please pass this onto at least one other
person that you feel it could benefit. You have nothing to lose.
request is that you will be an advocate for me and the profession of
coaching. Iím a pioneer for coaching locally. One of my goals is to
spread the word so that others can benefit. I value your assistance
and would appreciate your support. Iím very grateful to those of
you who have referred coaching clients, workshops and consulting opportunities
my way. †† †
