Education and Training to Become Certified

+ The Coaching Process
4 lectures 37:58

The coaching process typically begins with a pre-coaching session to assess the client’s readiness for coaching and to make personal changes and move forward. This session also helps determine if coaching is the right intervention for the client or if they need any other kind of help such as psychotherapy, in which case they must be referred to an appropriate practitioner or be advised to seek help wherever they feel appropriate. During the pre coaching session it is important to build rapport and trust with the potential client, and show them how you may be able to help them. It is a nice touch to have a client welcome package, I have taken the liberty of attaching a few downloadable documents to get you started.

Pre-coaching Session

Together, the coach and the client set an agenda discussing the strategies and timelines, and accordingly decide upon a coaching package that is most suitable for the client. This is the right time for the coach and the client to sign the coaching agreement. Instead of a dedicated pre-coaching session with their clients, many coaches incorporate the elements of the pre-coaching session into the Intake Session. During the intake/first session I introduce clients to the life wheel and assign them homework to write a rough draft life vision.

Intake Session/Discovery Session

No session is ever standard because each client's goals are completely unique. This lecture will go through the process of a typical life coaching session. We will go over what happens in the hour or so you are with your client as well as pricing and long term potential for client retention.

"Standard" Coaching session

You and your client have worked together and hopefully made some amazing progress and memories together. You have become quite close, but it is time for the coaching process to end. How do you handle the final session, and how can you still maintain in your client's life?

+ Popular Coaching Models and How to Make Them Your Own
9 lectures 20:29

Why do so many life coaches use these coaching models, and do I have to use them?

What are coaching models, and are they necessary

One of the most popular models around, the GROW model was designed by Sir John Whitmore in his book: Coaching for Performance. 


Peter Hawking's model solicits feedback from the client on how coaching benefitted them, what they found difficult and what changes they would like to see in the future coaching sessions.


Angus McLeod'S popular model is grounded in the belief is that behavior is driven by emotion, and therefore any action a client takes to achieve a goal depends on the emotional commitment they have to achieve that goal.

Preview 02:26

This model has its origin in the Solutions Focused Approach and it focuses on solutions rather than problems. 


The Solution Focused Approach is a highly action, goal and future-oriented technique of coaching.

Solution Focused Approach

Neuro-Linguistic Programming or NLP owes its existence to Richard Bandler and John Grinder. NLP explores how mind, body and language interact with one another giving rise to an individual’s perceptions of the world. These perceptions and the consequent behaviors linked to those perceptions can be changed by the use of different techniques.

Neuro-Linguistic Programming

The Cognitive Behavioral Therapy or CBT is a group of therapies that focus on helping the client change their thinking patterns (negative, unrealistic thoughts; also known as cognitive distortions. 

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Take all of the existing methods of coaching and put your own unique twist on them. From coaching clients you will learn what works and what does not. You can take bits of one style, and splice it with that of another coaching model. As long as you and the client are happy, that's all that matters.
