Why Train With The Coaching Academy

Professional training can never be replaced by the trial and error approach. The Coaching Academy has distilled the best practice from hundreds of professional coaches and created a coaching system that works wherever you live in the world with whoever you coach. All you do is combine the system with your own personality, skills and experience and you create a winning formula.

When you are trained by professionals you become a professional. If you are trained by amateurs, that is where you will remain!

All of The Coaching Academy’s trainers practice what they teach – they are all professional coaches with years of experience, successful businesses and clients who come back again and again. If you want to be in the same position, why not join us on The Certificate in Personal Coaching and begin to change your life!

Take a look through why we think you should choose The Coaching Academy above any other coach training company.

Limiting beliefs are those things you believe about yourself that place limitations on your abilities. Limiting beliefs are simply assumptions about reality that are not true.

GROW Model

02/11/2012

The GROW (Goal, Reality, Options, Will) model is the most common and widely used coaching tool. It empowers the coach to structure a coaching conversation and deliver a meaningful result.
