ABOUT THIS COURSE
What do you need to be an effective, skilled, knowledgeable Life Coach? Truth is, a lot. That’s why you’ll find that the vast majority of coaches are also life-long learners!
Getting the basics under your belt is essential, of course, but it’s not even close to ‘everything’ you’ll want to include in your own professional tool-box. But, like building the most impressive structures in the world, every great tower depends on its stable foundation to make it all possible.
It’s that solid foundation that you’ll get with Impact’s Core Coaching Skills training course.
The core coaching skills you’ll learn in this course will support every method, every technique, and every specialty training you’ll ever use during your professional coaching career. Your coaching mastery starts here!
From the basic understanding of professional skills, through the developing expertise to know exactly when to use them and how. You will be guaranteed to deliver value and results for your clients, all while avoiding the pitfalls so many new coaches encounter.
There’s more too, it’s also about the way you show up in the coaching relationship, and sustain momentum between sessions, how you maintain your coaching presence in the face of deep emotions, listen between the lines, and know what to do with what you hear….and MUCH more.

These are the basic requirements for this course:
To maximize the learning and practice benefits of this course, you will be paired with a class colleague for some of the out-of-class assignments and paired with one or more classmates for several in-class assignments. You will be working with people from all over the world and you are expected to be a respectful and interactive participant in these exercise opportunities. Homework is required, and rest assured, it’s designed with your busy lifestyle in mind.
During class you will be called upon for your thoughts, experiences, questions, opinions, and to engage in the class discussion. This is essential to everyone’s learning, and the value you bring benefits us all. You will NEVER be ‘called out’, but there will be times you will be appropriately ‘called upon’. Please be prepared to engage and participate.
