TCI is without a doubt the most successful coaching school within Australia. Growing demands for our methodologies from overseas has meant that in late 2013 we made our programs available to people from all over the world. This has been hugely successful, particularly the 'live streaming' of the training to students into their homes. With the recognition and high standards of the ICG, you're assured of a phenomenal training experience and the opportunity to be aligned with the best coaching training available.

There are so many things I would love to list that TCI has taught me in which I attribute our success too but I would keep you here all day. But a few things that really stick out for me are the teachings in how to deal with fear because there is a lot of it in business, know who you are and what you stand for and beliefs. We dared to dream and we still dare to believe we will become greater then what we already are. Thank you TCI my investment in you is worth more then the weight in gold.

Previously I worked in Marketing & Sales and loved the creativity in my role as a Marketing Manager but something was lacking. I always had a dream within to help others and knew there was more to life. That is when I set up my business Spiritual Discovery part time offering readings, psychic pamper parties & workshops. After 4 months I wanted to help my clients even more, I knew they had the answers within and wanted them to see their full potential and take control of their life. This is when I enrolled into TCI to become an accredited Life Coach.

Life coaching never seemed to me like a legitimate career. I always liked the idea but didn’t think it was a way to make decent money. Even though I knew life coaches help people and provide amazing service, I couldn’t see how I could make a living from it. Until I stumbled across TCI. I got to the point with my current job where I started thinking ‘life’s to short to be stuck doing something you aren’t crazy passionate about’. I investigated a few different things and life coaching seemed to stick. So after looking at the various different coaching courses, I rang TCI.

Just before my 50th birthday last year, the TCI page popped up on my facebook. I phoned straight away, more out of curiosity. Within a month I had signed up to "go the whole way" to the Master Practitioner: 2 years of study. I believed that then I could DO life coaching and BE the person my patients thought I was! Little did I know that this learning would be like no other.

What I dig so much about the TCI community is that we hold a principle that says, ‘its ok to not know how’ and, ‘it is ok to suck at something.’ Failure is ok. I have learnt how set-backs, rejection, not having a great day or things not going to plan can leverage me into a successful outcome rather than the opposite. I have learnt how to strategize, to create steps and follow daily systems that direct me on the course. I have learnt that high personal standards are my most valuable asset. When I’m lagging I ask myself if this standard is one I uphold. My response dictates the action to follow. I have learnt to love where I’m at, no matter where I am. I have learnt that momentum is created by action. The ducks don’t line up unless one moves. TCI is a community based around this. Nothing happens unless I do something.

This coming year will see my business expand as I attract clients eager to experience a little ‘Modern Etiquette’. I will be doing more presenting, group work and joint ventures – and I am working on raising my profile within the niche of personal branding. Having worked with a blog coach recently – my blog launches in January and maybe I’ll finish my book. I have a voice and TCI has helped me find it.

This has been one of the most rewarding experiences I have had, to see these two young people grow the way they did was amazing. I truly stepped out into the coaching world on Tuesday 29th April 2014 launching my business with a 2 hour workshop presenting the 10 Success Principles. I listened to this CD collection constantly for 2 weeks prior to the event, at the gym, in the car and I was reading the book at the same time. I transcribed every CD and I live with these principles everyday. I signed my first business client in May 2014 on a 6 month retainer and have been coaching the business owners and their managers. This client has seen me grow as a coach, after completing EDisc, Advanced Skills, Meta 1 & Meta II and How to Run a Workshop. I have been grateful for the opportunity to use all of these skills with this business client.

Before TCI I was working as a Town Planning Consultant in London. A demanding and stressful job I found myself in conflict with a Director and I ended up hating my job. I would spend my daytimes working as hard as possible so I didn’t have to work with him and my night times writing out new business ideas. Anything to get me out of where I was at. After 2 years of searching for something different my Dad said to me ‘Jade stop searching. You are going to Australia and you never know what Australia holds for you’. 12 months into a new town planning role in Australia and life was much sweeter. Sunshine, a 10 minute walk to work and no conflict, yet I still found myself searching for something more meaningful. Then I found The Coaching Institute and wow what a journey it has been. At my intake weekend I felt like I was in a parallel universe and I just couldn’t believe something like this existed. Finding The Coaching Institute has been one of the best things about moving to Australia.

When I wake up some mornings and find myself in an unresourceful state of mind, I remember an anecdote relayed to me by Joe Pane at my FOCS training. He told us that in nature, ducks do not stand around and organise how they are going to walk. The mother just starts moving and soon all the ducks are in a row. So I stop listening to my inner voice, put one foot in front of the other and by simply acting, I achieve more in my day than I could ever have imagined laying in bed.

With a strong appetite for the classroom component of the course, I booked in and completed all of those days with Joe Pane, Sharon Pearson and Johnnie Cass as quickly as possible. And with a real need to earn money, I got out there, joined business networking groups and started coaching as soon as I could. I needed to earn 100k in my first financial year, just to keep the wolves at bay, so I set the goal, focussed on where I could add value and make a difference, and I achieved my goal. This was working as a generalist, coaching and training anyone and everyone!

The part of it all is…. making your own rules. Whilst there are MANY different paths to take, this is a path that rewards taking your own path consistently. Most people are too concerned with thinking it needs to be such a certain way, but doing this is about finding your own way and inspiring others to the do the same is what this is about. TCI gives you the canvas, brushes and paints, and then it’s up to create a master piece of your own design. Don’t concern yourself so much with the 10,000th step, you’ll figure that out when you get to the 9,999th.

I came to TCI in September 2012. Both my wife Janelle and I decided to take the journey together, figuring that if all we got out of it was a better marriage, then that’d be a pretty damn good deal! Yes, it’s been so much more than that! Life before TCI? A bit different…! I was an actor, producer and director of my own theatre company, whilst holding down a day job at a transport company. Yup, I told you it was a bit different! Needless to say I was very busy. So busy that I burnt out while doing the very thing that I loved and eventually gave my theatre company away. All I was left with was my bills paid from keeping my transport job, and an empty feeling for giving up my passion. There’s only so long that one can stay with that empty feeling before finally taking action. And after many conversations with a great friend who was then a WOW team member, I started to see options.
