The Starting Place: Coaching Essentials
Coaching Essentials is an 8-week course, offered two or three times a year. It provides an in-depth introduction to coaching skills, process and ethics. The required starting place for the five-course foundation program, CE is designed to stand on its own. For many organizing and productivity specialists, CE provides all the coach training they want to deepen their client communication. Coaching Essentials. has its own page on this website (as do all the courses).
What Our Students Say
Coaching has completely transformed the way I work with my organizing and productivity clients. I used to return to my office exhausted because I was doing all of the “heavy lifting” for my clients both figuratively and literally. I felt responsible for their success and it was wearing me out. Coaching has allowed me to view my clients as creative and resourceful individuals and let go of my need to control, which was so draining.
