International Accreditation Body Gets New Name

 

 The IIC&M are going through a comprehensive re-branding campaign that includes a positive change of name toThis welcome name change accurately reflects why they exist, how they deliver an inclusive accreditation service, and what the benefits are – for everyone.

 

   David Monro-Jones, COO said ‘As an independent not-for-profit organisation, run by coaches and mentors, with over 15 year’s accreditation expertise, we are an authority on accrediting professionals in our industry.  We don’t have our own training course to promote, and we are not driven by shareholders.  Therefore, our sole focus is to make sure every single step of the accreditation process directly benefits our members, including the hiring public’. 

 

David goes on to say ‘These changes are long over-due and are in direct response to demands for a website that represents our international members, an accreditation process that is more inclusive, vigorous and representative of high-impact practice and last but not least, we’re addressing the number one reason why more than 50% of businesses fail in the first year – we are launching a practical business programme called The Business of Coaching; a free monthly educational module which is linked to a member’s CPD, which  means when practitioner’s up-grade their accreditation status, they’ll also have the opportunity to further develop relevant business skills to support their clients.  This level of value added support is unprecedented, and will go a long way to plugging the much needed gap between skills and business acumen’.  

 

  The difference between certification and accreditation is often misunderstood:

ü  Certification is verification related to products, processes, systems or persons

ü  Accreditation is verification related to demonstration of competence to carry out specific tasks.

So accreditation is higher than certification, for example, students receive degrees, a type of certification, but it’s the university that has their courses accredited – often the reason why a student will select one university over another that does not have an accredited programme.

Increasingly, the public are demanding to work with accredited professionals, it’s a key differentiator in choosing an expert, so make sure you stand out in the sea of sameness by becoming accredited now by visiting www.coach-accreditation.services

Cartesian Questions For Confusion

On my Life Coaching diploma level 7 course I demonstrate and the delegates practice many useful tools and techniques. These tools and techniques range from how to convert an inquiry into a paying client to how to use NLP when coaching. One of the easiest to use and most effective tools covered on the life coaching course, Cartesian Questions, can be used when a client is unsure or shows hesitancy in describing a goal or course of action.
When a client is confused or unsure of the next step, an average coach will run roughshod or skim over any doubts and go straight for actions. This is a natural response for non-trained coaches and sometimes

Client Data on your mobile – is it safe?

Tags: , , , , , , , , Business, Coaching

Padlock
We often forget that our mobile devices hold client information because we overlook the odd text or email which has been received on our mobile device.

Recent surveys have shown that 75% of mobile devices have information which is work based/sensitive stored on them and that nearly 50% of these devices are not encrypted with around 30+% not password protected.

Ask yourself this question,

‘Do I hold any information on my mobile devices which relates to my coaching business?’

If the answer to the above question is ‘yes’, the next and very important question is, Read More

The Law Of Three

The Law of Three

Colin Edwards and the Law of Three

Although is around ten years since I was last involved with magazine editing – or any other proper job for that matter – I still take an interest in the whole editing and publishing scene. This is how I learned about Trinity Mirror Digital research about readers’ attitudes.

Your awareness of their key findings could have a profound impact on improving the effectiveness of your print and on-line publicity material, whether you are a life coach, some other professional in independent practice or otherwise involved in business development. So, Ladies and Gentlemen, I offer you ‘The Magic of 300’!

People will only read an on-line item if it is around 300 words long. On most screens this allows them to see the beginning, middle and end of the piece in a single glance and then they can judge how long it will take to read it. There are exceptions, for instance, when readers have a keen interest in the subject matter. There is no need to do a word count if you keep in mind that a screen-full is about 300.

It takes around two minutes to Read More

You Choose To Believe Your Own Beliefs. Therefore You Can Choose To Change Them.  Extract From The Life Coaching Handbook. Everything You Need To Be An Effective Life Coach, Chapter 4 Essential Coaching Beliefs.

Anthony Robbins says,

‘It is in your moments of decision that your destiny is shaped’.

One of your key moments of decision is when you decide not to believe in limiting beliefs and then help your clients to do the same.
Here is a very powerful and easy way to change old habits and beliefs. Think of a person who you consider to be very skilful in what it is that you want to be able to do. Now model that person. Stand in front of a mirror (in private) and mimic the ways they hold their body, talk, laugh, breathe, move and anything else you can think of.
Consider how they get what they want, how they stand, sit, walk, gesticulate. Think about what they do that you currently do not do. Then ask this question, ‘What would you need to believe Read More

Which Direction?

Tarka-Trail-Sign-PostNon-Directional Coaching versus Directional Coaching within a Niche Market

I was asked recently (not by one of my trainees as they are told the answer on the course) how does non-directional coaching and directional coaching work when I have a niche market based on my expertise in running a successful small retail business?

My belief is that to be an outstanding coach you need the skills in both non-directional coaching and directional coaching. The challenge is that it is almost as easy as falling off a log to tell other people what to do. Stop now. (There you are I have just done it!) Really, stop for a minute and ask yourself

‘who recently have I told how to do something, or what they should do?’

Was it your ageing mother, your teenage children, your best friend who found herself in a dilemma? The list is endless. So you see, it is easy to tell people what to do and we are experts in doing it, and we do it all the time. Notice I did not say we are experts in what we tell them to do; only we are experts in telling people what to do.

It would follow then, that to be a niche coach who is  Read More

Coaching Steps and Core Values

Coaching steps

When I saw these steps to nowhere it started me on a journey of thoughts about life coaching. I thought about the many coaches (not trained by me) who are working with their clients, in all good faith, setting goals with action plans. Only they have not been taught about the importance of discovering each client’s core values before embarking on change work.

Like these beautiful rock steps, all full of promise and leading nowhere, the non-enlightened coach, who does not know his/her client’s core values, will be taking steps to nowhere. As will the coach who has taken the time to Read More
