Have you wondered what it takes to become a great coach?

As we work to improve mental health and wellness in society, more Leaders will be required to offer coaching support to their employees.

We now know that coaching is a vehicle that will help drive the future of work and a fulfilling career, thus many organizations are requiring their leaders to use a coaching approach to address interpersonal and performance issues at work.

Also, more of us will need a Life Coach to help manage life stresses and challenges, so we can maintain focus and balance.

We have been training and certifying coaches for the past 17 years there are several things I have observed. In this article, I will share four keys steps that makes it easier to become an exceptional coach.

The four steps are:

1. Secure High Quality Coach Training

Learn a variety of coaching applications. Search out a high touch training program built on the philosophy of active hands-on learning. We offer maximum one-on-one instructor time with small classes and a range coaching of applications.

2. Get Great Mentor Coaching

Mentor coaching helps you excel and expand your coaching toolbox. Mentor coaching and supervision should be built into the training program. We offer supervision and mentoring in each instructor learner interaction, throughout the training program, at no additional cost.

3. Practice the Art of Coaching

The more you practice coaching, the better coach you become. Get supervised practicum that lets you practice the competencies you have learned. Take the time given to practice your coaching skills, you will never regret it. Our program offers a supervised practicum with regular feedback.

4. Prepare to Support Your Clients' Mental Health and Wellness

Everyone you coach will need to improve some aspect of their wellness. Clients are facing myriads of challenges and coaching can help functional clients to implement strategies to stay well. Our program prepares you to provide transformational results in the mental, physical, social, and emotional wellness areas to support your clients' needs.

I hope these tips help you in your search for a great coach training program. The strength of our program is that we teach because we love doing it. Our instructors truly love the field of coaching and to prepare the next generation of coaches.
