Emotional Freedom Techniques

Are you hearing the buzz about EFT/tapping (Emotional Freedom Techniques)? It’s an evidence-based technique from the newly emerging field of Energy Psychology, integrating various coaching/therapy modalities from talking, cognitive behavioural strategies, NLP through to positive psychology. EFT gives you and your clients an ‘in the moment’ way to interrupt stress, overwhelm, fear, anger, sadness and other forms of resistance that stop your clients from getting the most out of your coaching wisdom, regardless of whether you’re helping them with health, wealth, relationships, peak performance or career issues. They get faster deeper results and you get a deep sense of satisfaction! Next class is Feb 25-27, 2017. Space fills quickly.

If you’d like to learn more visit my upcoming events page to attend an event or let’s chat.

Is it time for you to gain the Business Coaching Advantage?

Do you…

  • Aspire to be a coach in the leadership/organizational context?
  • Coach formally or informally as part of your role?
  • Want to enhance your confidence, competence, credibility and impact with those you coach?

March 22-24! Coaching Essentials – Part 1 of the BCA Certification Program! ICF Accredited!

Why a dedicated leadership/business coaching program? Because being a great business coach isn't easy.

To cultivate leadership capability coaches need a sophisticated blend of knowledge, specialized coaching skills and business experience.

Business Coaching Advantage Certification Program™ is a fresh, robust and tightly focused program. Essentials Coursework is 3 days and can stand alone as a solid foundation. Add the Essentials Virtual Practicum and you have a compact 4 month program and intense learning and gain a WABC credential. Follow on with Part 2 and 3 and you complete our full ICF ACTP.

Essentials is for newer coaches, and for people who support leaders in HR, OD, Training, Consulting and leadership roles who want to deepen learning & further develop their competence, credibility & confidence as a coach in a business context.

Dorothy Greenaway, MCC and Melinda Sinclair, Chartered Business Coach™ are internationally recognized trailblazers in professional coaching & coach education, blending decades of leadership development & coaching with expertise in facilitating exceptional adult learning experiences.

moSpeaker Training… ideal for coaches to build business and use as a coaching tool!

Over the years, we have studied, dissected and figured out the difference between the good speakers and those who are truly awesome. What we learned made us realize why it’s so hard to find any one speaker coach or training program that really accelerates your effectiveness and success... because it isn’t just one key skill or competency that makes the difference -- it's a lot of things that only work when they work together.

Limited to just 12 participants, and facilitated by Michel Neray, founder of momondays, a major portion of each Purposeful Storytelling Workshop is devoted to working with each individual in order to help you go from a good speaker to a great speaker. It’s a unique approach that incorporates elements of the crafts of storytelling, Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), scriptwriting, classic speaker training, stand-up comedy, improv and acting.

Create YOUR Coaching Practice

A program designed with YOU in mind.

Facilitated by Bruce McLeod and Diane Lloyd

This program is for you if:

  • You’re a coaching graduate new to the world of entrepreneurship.
  • You have already launched a practice but aren’t getting the results you want.
  • You have been coaching internally and are ready to “take the leap” to launch your business.
  • You want help mapping out your business strategy AND getting clients.
  • You feel a bit overwhelmed and aren’t sure where to start.
  • You want to connect with coaching business mentors and a supportive group of like-minded entrepreneurs.

Sound familiar? We can help.

We designed this program to help you thrive in your coaching business. The content has been road tested—it’s based on our experiences, failures, successes and experiments.

Why Invest?
Many coaching businesses fail in the first two years and there are many good reasons for this. One reason is that new coaches haven't invested the time and energy to learn about what it takes to build and sustain a business. This path you have chosen is about more than coaching; it is about becoming a business owner, a marketer, a salesperson, a strategist, and oh yes, a coach.

The Details
Start Date: Friday, Sept 30 to Friday, Nov 18, 2016
One-hour webinars using ADOBE Connect, on Fridays for 8 consecutive weeks. (Webinars are recorded if you are unable to attend)
8:30am PST, 11:30am EST.
