Coaching for Personal Resilience

This course is designed for new and experienced coaches who want to develop the expertise needed to provide personal resilience coaching to individual clients.

Personal resilience coaching with individual clients is experiencing exponential growth.  This course can help you open new doors, access new opportunities for ongoing work, and secure new clients and contracts.  People and organizations alike are looking for ways to face increased demands and challenges, a fast-paced life and work; to reduce the impacts of stress on mental and physical health, and to improve fulfillment, motivation, productivity and life satisfaction – in a nutshell, to improve personal resilience capacity to face life’s challenges.

Personal resilience coaching is becoming one of the fastest growing types of workplace-sponsored coaching.  There is growing need for a big picture approach that includes a multi-focus personal resilience practice, because it saves organizations time, money and valuable people: it’s key to productivity, motivation, low turnover and absenteeism, sustained growth – and a healthy bottom line. 

Join us and be part of this exciting new opportunity to build a steady business with reliable coaching opportunities. Here is what one student said about the last course: “There are very few courses I’ve taken that were as transformative and life changing.  This is one of them: wonderful course and excellent instructor.  Thank you”. 

Personal resilience is about thriving in life instead of coping.  Get your clients ready to deal successfully with multiple life challenges instead of dealing with the aftermath. Empower them to take the lead on their life, sharing with them what makes a resilient life: a clear destination, a good map, adequate discernment, great driving skills, and enough fuel to last the whole trip.  Help your clients acquire this multi-functional life skillset and build resilience, one day and one step at a time, instead of expecting life to improve some time, some day.  Resilience is not about bouncing back to where you were, or to undoing what’s done… it’s about moving forward, one day at a time, and to keep going.  

Personal resilience is about moving forward with a new skillset: to envision what matters most and to de-clutter it from what matters less; to refuel the resources that keep you not only alive, but whole and fully functional, productive and motivated; it’s about learning what will keep you going… and going, with enough resources to deal with life and work challenges.

This course will provide concrete, motivating practical knowledge for new and experienced coaches who want to build their expertise in an area that offers exciting growth opportunities.  If you already provide coaching to individual clients or within an organization, you’ll broaden your knowledge, gain new insights and a new framework individual, team and cultural resilience.  If you are a new coach, this course will offer practical opportunities not only to learn how to coach resilience, but also to implement a resilience skillset to your own coaching business and personal life.
