Whatever specialty we choose; business owners, executives, parents or other audiences, we will always be dealing with human potential. Therefore, we should build a coaching presence supported by well-refined professional competencies to coach the whole person with confidence. Whether you become an executive coach, corporate or career coach, the set of comprehensive techniques will equip you with confidence to build a transformative professional coaching relationship with your clients from the chemistry meeting till closure of the whole process.
The Awareness Step
The Awareness Step is the foundation of the FLOW Coaching Institute: Unleash Your Creative Potential Towards Positive Shift professional coach certification program. This is where you start to gain a deep understanding of what professional coaching really is and what it is not. On this module, you will deepen your existing paradigm and awareness of who you are as a coach and who you can become. We will walk through the steps of “the Architecture of FLOW Coaching Session” and right on start practice building as of the firs morning. From there on, we will move forward with the core competencies of certified coaching, as noted by the International Coaching Federation (ICF): ethics and principles, building trust and intimacy, establishing agreement, effective goal setting, creating compelling futures, creative questions, and more. By the end of this module, we promise you that, you will be able to competently structure a FLOW professional coaching session.
The Motivation Step
The Motivation Step will deepen your awareness of how you can motivate and inspire your clients to coach them to move beyond their inner resistance. From experience, we know that each individual has different motivational habits and flow states. Therefore, it is very crucial that we help you to build the ability to match these different motivational styles and gain the confidence to stretch their habits when you think necessary. This is where we start to introduce Positive Psychology and learn about the conditions that create flow experience in people’s lives. We will share with you the conditions for flow. We will demonstrate how to coach people to own their own flow experience by using the Flow Mastery Model.
The Creative Planning Step
The Creative Planning Step will show you FLOW’s creative tools and strategies to coach the conscious and subconscious states of a whole person. Humans are multidimensional beings with complexity and this module will give you a broad set of tools, methods and strategies to bring the full potential of the person forward and help you coach them to imagine, design and refine their plans towards managing progress and achievement. Each person has different abilities, perspectives, beliefs, habits, values, resources, cultural background and identity. The methodologies that you will learn in this module will allow you to acknowledge these differences and will give you diverse set of proven tools that you won’t find in any other professional coach training program. Coaching is about creating positive change in people’s lives and stretching their existing reality. To be able to do so, you should learn how to shake your client’s dysfunctional old paradigms by creating a safe space for an authentic dialogue with their mind, body and heart. In this Module, we will show you how to do it. This step gives you a deeper knowledge of Flow Coaching’s practices, and the ability to empower your clients to move towards meaningful and sustainable life changes.
The Achievement Step
The Achievement Step will give you the opportunity to work on your relationship with success. What is success for you? What are your core values that inspire you towards success? Which of your values can fuel your goals? What happens to a person when they are in stress response?
Confident coaches learnt to build a healthy relationship to both success with rituals and strategies to manage their stress responses. Unless you build a healthy awareness about your own relationship to success, you won’t be able to help diverse clients who have issues with success. In this module, we will practice how to coach your clients and help them move beyond their fears and move towards achieving what is truly important to them. We will show you how to support your clients to build a sustainable achievement plan that embraces their core values and strengths. You will learn to recognize your clients’ internal blocks, dysfunctional beliefs and outdated values so you can encourage them to overcome these blocks as well as developing a sense of accountability to own and evaluate their own progress. Finding and dissolving these barriers and gaining the ability to build inner allies will help your clients move forward towards the planning phase and have the energy to take action every single day.
The Focus Step
The Focus Step is the last module of the “FLOW Coaching Institute: Unleash Your Creative Potential Towards Positive Shift” Professional Certificate program. Upon successful completion of this module, student coaches will graduate as FCPC: FLOW Certified Professional Coach and they might to choose move towards completing the ACTP components for obtaining their ICF PCC (Professional Certified Coach) certification.
This module is about focus and resilience. Today, most people have problems focusing on what is truly important to them, and procrastination as well as daily distractions is a common challenge to overcome. In this module, we will demonstrate how to coach your clients stay focused on what is truly meaningful to them. You will also learn how to support them to overcome procrastination and negativity, and support their progress through daily actions and ‘small wins’. We will encourage you to commit your focus on your coaching practice and work with real life coaching case studies donated by the FLOW PCC and MCC coaches for education purposes and discuss the right approach for each case in consideration with the ICF Code of Ethics and 11 competencies that we are responsible as certified coaches. As you become a FLOW Professional Certified Coach, you will learn strategies to focus on your strong and supportive coaching presence that will keep your clients on track.
