Tools for Coaches: Courses
Who couldn’t use more joy and less stress? This program has given me a real lift when I’ve needed a little kick in the pants. Yes, things could always be better! But, they’re pretty dang good as they are too. If you find yourself mired in a bit of a stress rut, Gratitude Daily will help you refocus. It helped me!
Living From a Place of Surrender
This is a wonderful course for understanding the value of letting go and being with what is. Michael Singer’s lectures are the perfect blend of tried and true wisdom mixed with actionable strategies. If you have followed the work of Eckhart Tolle in The Power of Now, or you have read Mark Nepo’s Book of Awakening, you will love this course. It will change you.
The Freedom to Choose Something Different
I first encountered the work of Pema Chodron in 1995 when I read her book When Things Fall Apart – Wisdom for Difficult Times. I’ve returned to my dog-eared and well-worn copy many times over the years. I’ve since read almost all of what she has written. This course is a favourite. If you ever find yourself stuck in a tail-spin of reactive emotion, this program will help you choose a different path. It works.
Your True Calling
What is my path? Why am I here? How can I follow my bliss and find my passion? These are questions I hear often in coaching (I bet you do too). They are questions I have wrestled with myself. Using the ancient teaching of yoga as a guide, this course by Stephen Cope will help you consider your path forward. I learned a lot in this course and have integrated much of it in my life and in my work. If you are ready to find clarity on life questions you have been pondering, this course is for you.
The Untethered Soul at Work
I have coached many clients over the years who have been experiencing stress and burnout at work. They often feel that the only way to cope is to leave the organization, or the boss, or the team, in search of a better fit. What I love about Michael Singer’s program is that it explores other solutions. He shares practical wisdom on ten common business challenges including finding fulfillment at work, the art of conscious communication, creativity and problem-solving, and much more.
World Business and Executive Coach Summit
This is the best, most cost-effective learning around for coaches who have already acquired coach-specific training and are looking to ramp up their skills and knowledge. It’s an online summit that runs year-round. Coaches who are interested in earning continuing coach education units can earn up to 200 CCE’s this year.
Non-violent Communication Online Training Course
I’ve long been interested in the topic of empathy, particularly as it relates to understanding how best to listen deeply in coaching. This program taught me the importance of communicating with respectful empathic attention and to use the language of compassion, particularly in difficult conversations.
