In this coaching program I have obtained skills to help others achieve their goals through specific proven successful coaching models. We have participated in 12 weekly webinars and live practice sessions allowing each of us to ask questions, work in small groups and get feedback every.step.of.the.way. We have learned about the intake process, how to delve deeper with clients to get to their motivations, to work with the inevitable challenges that come up, to stress proof the big changes and then to put it all together. Essentially we have learned that coaching entails a reliable process where we can help clients achieve huge health goals. Through effective tools and knowing where and when to use them, we can empower others to thrive. I hope to use what I've learned to either coach people on my own or to work as part of a larger organization. There is a great need for coaches out there. Thank you.
I came into this coaching program with a clear idea of what the healthiest diet is for human beings and have been following that in my own life successfully for a few years. What I wanted to learn was how to help other people get there too, and to start to make my passion for a plant-based world something that could become a livelihood I loved. And while my diet was handled, there were other areas like exercise and mindset that I still struggled with. To be honest, I probably wanted some coaching on a few things myself. This program has given me a set of simple frameworks, models and understandings that I have confidence I can apply both for myself and for others to make positive progress on all those issues. While I am finding that coaching definitely requires practice to gain competence (and perhaps many years to master), I am finding this course the perfect jumping off point for having the competence and confidence to take my passion into the world as a health coach. And I've been making progress on my own health and happiness goals along the way. While there was some stress about finding the time and the money to participate, I can't imagine anything else that I could have done in the last 12 weeks that would have brought more value to my life.
This course has been amazing! The webinars are educational, entertaining, and fact based. Howard and Kevin are always recommending books and resources to further our knowledge on the subject we are learning. The practice assignments are well thought out and meaningful. Working through this program has helped me become a better person, more aware of others around me and how to help them on their journey to health. This program has helped to equip me with the tools I need to guide others through making difficult life changes. We spent time talking about how to deal with stress and trauma, a subject which is not usually covered in courses like this. That training has changed the way I view and respond to my own stress and how I help others through their stressful situations. I appreciated that this program was more than a promoter of a WFPB diet, it actually teaches how to coach and guide others along to pathway to health and a better life. I am so glad I took the time to go through this program! It has truly changed my life for the better.
Before signing up for this course, I was on the fence, but I am SO glad I did it. It's a wonderful supportive atmosphere, and Howard and Kevin do an awesome job of gentle guidance. I met wonderful like-minded people, and I learned not only how to help other people but also how to help myself! Being able to guide people through successful behavior change is really rewarding. I have also greatly improved my communication skills, getting my point across in a gentler way. I can not recommend this course strongly enough. It is not just a course in coaching, but also in how to be a successful human being. Loved it!
