I’ve been AWOL, I know. The past few months have been a flurry of activity as I completed my assessments for coaching certification through International Coach Academy. ICA has several requirements for certification, which is one of the reasons I chose to attend classes there. Anyone can say they are a life coach, but I wanted the skills, understanding and experience to be confident in my ability to provide value for my clients. (PLEASE READ TO THE BOTTOM OF THIS POST FOR A TERRIFIC OPPORTUNITY!)
The Certified Professional Coach Program for ICA has the following requirements:
90 hours teleclass time (Module Levels 1-5)
24 hours Coaching Practicums
60 hours Peer Coaching (2 of the clients must be peer clients (fellow students))
24 hours of me being coached
18 hours Supervised Coaching
Personal Coaching Model
Record of Participation.
ICA has trained coaches in over 90 countries in the world; and has created professional coaching programs that demand personal reflection, an appreciation of the ethical aspects of coaching, and thorough training of the core competencies of coaching set out by the International Coach Federation. Further information about ICF ethics at: ICF Code of Ethics.
My ICA experience has been outstanding. Fellow ICA peers agree that it has been a life-altering experience that takes you on a journey of personal growth similar to the one our clients will take. What better way for the coach to know how to dig deep, face your fears, shift perspectives and take action toward our goals?
I am thrilled to now have my professional coaching certification and commit to being an excellent representative of the coaching profession.

IN CELEBRATION of the completion of my studies and receiving my professional certification, I’d like to extend the opportunity for you to receive an

This will be a combination Discovery Session (where we get to know each other and discuss what coaching is) and Laser Session (a 15-20 minute focused session on one issue). You will receive a Session Summary Report within 48 hours of your Introductory Session, and a follow-up email or phone call from me one week later.
I am giving away five (5) free Introductory Sessions total, one per person. If you are interested, please let me know in the comments or contact me through my Connect page. I can’t wait to hear from you!!
