The exclusive FLOW Coach Method is comprised of five Modules and a final supervised practicum that show you how to integrate the lessons from the Modules into your coaching practice. The Modules provide step-by-step teachings to help you learn the skills required to become a successful coach, develop your ability to problem solve, and come up with creative solutions.
The Awareness Module is the foundation of FLOW Coaching. This training Module will train you in the foundational theory and practice of coaching. You will learn the critical elements of 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, you will be able to competently conduct a basic coaching session.
The Motivation Module will provide you with a deeper understanding how you can motivate and inspire your clients to realise their goals. During this Module, you will learn to recognize your clients’ internal blocks so you can encourage them to overcome these blocks to achieve success. Finding and dissolving these barriers will help your clients move towards the planning phase and ultimate achievement of their goals. The Module will show you how to teach your clients to internally integrate and externally apply the skills and tools they need to overcome the internalized beliefs and fears that prevent them from growing.
Module 3Creative Planning
The Creative Planning Module will provide you with the tools to go deeper into the FLOW Coach Methodology. You will learn how to help your clients design solutions to achieve their personal and professional goals. In this Module, theory and practice are integrated using advanced creative tools and strategies. You will graduate this Module with 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 Module will enhance your coaching skills to help you support your clients as they move towards achieving sustainable results. You will learn how to help your clients refine their visions and goals, and project their achievements. This Module will give you the wisdom to empower and help your clients realise their visions and goals.
The Focus Module is about focus and resilience. Many people have problems focusing on what is truly important to them, and procrastination is a common challenge to overcome. In this Module, you will learn how to help 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’. As a coach, you will learn to create a strong and supportive coaching presence that will keep your clients on track.
Module 6Practicum and Supervision
The Practicum and Supervision Module will help you apply what you’ve learned in real-life situations and build the confidence you need to become a professional coach. The practicum contains four components:
- Practicum classes.
- Supervised coaching sessions and feedback.
- Mentor coaching sessions that will allow you to confidently move towards your ICF credentialing.
- Oral coaching assessment completed following the classes and mentor coaching sessions.
Supervised coaching sessions are an important part of the practicum classes. We encourage our students to build their own coaching practice using a variety of strategies. As part of your classroom teaching, there will be peer-coaching. Mentor coaching sessions allow student coaches to align their coaching skills with ICF competencies. Through mentor coaching sessions, students get detailed feedback on their coaching skills based on each ICF competency. All components of the Practicum and Supervision Module must be completed within one year of starting the Module.
