ABOUT THIS COURSE
On an average day in America, 121 people end their lives by suicide. That means that we will lose over 44,000 people this calendar year and create approximately 265,000 immediate family members with questions, confusion, and grief.
There are coaching skills and techniques that work across broad cross-sections of humanity, and then there are methods and techniques that are very demographically specific. No matter how you design your coaching practice, or what community you have decided to coach, within that group certain human experiences will appear. Your clients will lose an aging family member, they will lose their jobs, get diagnosed, and…be touched by suicide.
As coaches, we have an opportunity to help change the current trend around suicide. Not because we attract, or even work with, overtly suicidal people, but because our coach training has already positioned us to be very good at noticing the signs, and having the critical conversations. This is especially true if we’ve learned what to look for.
Not only can you potentially save a life, but you can bring much-needed support to grieving families, (some of whom might be your clients), and establish deep connections within your community up to, and including, making it a safer place for those struggling with suicidal thoughts. If you carry flares, have a first-aid kit, or learn CPR, you should learn more about saving lives from suicide as well.
