Of course we are delighted that we have contact with our sensational students every day we spend at The Coaching Institute. Part of that connection is checking in on how are students are progressing, and celebrating their success. And a consistent pattern that we notice is when a student is persistent, just keeps turning up and takes action is based on the fact that they have clear goals. And most often, those students that experience far more challenge around completing their studies, obtaining clients and creating success haven’t built the foundations of success through clear goal setting. Having a sense of purpose of why you do what you do is the difference between being successful and being fragmented. If you are clear on what you want to achieve, learn and develop strength in your coaching and business skills will be what links you to the purpose for which you have taken on this journey in the first place. The power of setting goals creates purpose and vision…..take action today. “I believe life is constantly testing us for our level of commitment, and life’s greatest rewards are reserved for those who demonstrate a never-ending commitment to act until they achieve. This level of resolve can move mountains, but it must be constant and consistent. As simplistic as this may sound, it is still the common denominator separating those who live their dreams from those who live in regret.” Anthony Robbins.

You know how we love to share at The Coaching Institute. Well, here are some of the glowing testimonials from our most brilliant and successful students who have just completed NLP Trainers Training! Congratulations to you all on your achievements. And so….what did they love about the training?
“It was a priviledge to share the space with mastery and those on a quest for mastery – the true breeding ground of creativity, growth and contribution”
“What an amazing opportunity to have two legendary NLP Trainers to impart not just their knowledge, also their wisdom and learnings to assist us to be the best trainers we can be”
“The training was at a level higher than I have ever experienced and really did prepare me to serve others and my room to the level that will serve them best”
Phenomenal results…..how great is it to be part of this journey!
For avid readers of Robert Cialdini’s national bestseller Influence, The Psychology of Persuasion, they will certainly reinforce that this book contains absolute gold in terms of understanding marketing and how you can apply these principles in your own business. If you are a student who has recently joined The Coaching Institute, you will no doubt be exposed to the wisdom that Cialdini shares with his readers on the secrets to persuasion such as Automatic Influence and the Law of Reciprocity ( a law so overpowering as it is old and embedded in our society since we first began to use it). In fact, Cialdini states that “The reciprocity rule that empowers…….is too strong and socially beneficial…for us to want to violate it”. It is an excellent read that says much of how we are influenced to buy or not to buy, to trust or not to trust and in fact, this book will assist each student to better understand why people say yes, and how they can apply what they learn to their own market niche. Take the time to read and understand how you can utilise the learning. Share it and discuss it with your coaching colleagues. It is well worth the time it will take to pick it up and make it happen!!!!!!
Recently we had the fantastic opportunity to listen to Queen Alice on the simple yet powerful concept of coming from a heart space. There is no secret to this…..(however maybe we tend to complicate it for whatever purpose serves us?) Basically unless you genuinely believe that someone has everything within them to be successful beyond what even they believe they can achieve, you are not genuinely coming from a heart space. And as humans we are motivated by two types of goals. We either want to move away from pain or move towards more pleasure. As coaches, it is soooooooooooo essential that our heart space is one of giving and sharing generously ….so we can truly be there 100% for those who we come into contact. You will never know just how powerful your own mindset is when you connect with others from a heart space of generosity. If you see your client as successful then they will succeed. It is known as the ripple effect, and has far more power than what you will ever be aware of. Imagine how much difference this can make in this world….if we all operated from that space??????
“Our subconscious minds have no sense of humor, play no jokes and cannot tell the difference between reality and an imagined thought or image. What we continually think about eventually will manifest in our lives” Sidney Madwed.
Just like life, there are beginings and endings in everything. And today we saw the final day of the absolutely sensational Mastermind bonus three day training ‘Your Personal Success’….truly brilliant responses by the participants will be shared with you more over time. And…..drum roll…..we say hello to the participants of our training program ‘How to Put Together Your Workshop’ being held at The Coaching Institute from Thursday 24th March to Sunday 27th March. This program allows our participants to truly step up to a totally new level of expertise and it is always a popular program due to the exceptional level of content and learning…and all in four days! Now….we’re going to leave you with this to ponder……What is one aspect of a gathering of the coaching community that we truly value, as we work through our training programs and maintain connection with like minded people? The answer? It’s the chance to contribute, share and learn from each other that makes these events truly worthwhile. And for each time you connect with other talented people one thing is certain….you will always learn. We’ll leave you with this quote…”Where all think alike, no one thinks very much“….and we are so proud that this is definitely NOT the case with our coaching community.
Congratulations!!! to our sensational students from The Coaching Institute who successfully completed their Neuro Linguistic Programming Practitioner Training Program in Sydney (first one of these programs to be held in Sydney) yesterday, 21st March 2011. An event packed full of learning and growth resulted in brilliant feedback and we want to share what one of the participants provided. Susan from SA said “…..The NLP training was absolutely amazing – Alice is a phenomenal trainer who made the 7 days come alive with excitement. Alice chose a wonderful Crew who were so helpful, friendly, knowledgeable and very professional. Of course the participants are really what made the training what it was. Everyone was there to play at 100% and everyone did! I caught up with amazing coaches from my intake weekend, some from the Successful Workshop training, some from the Extended Disc training and others I had not met before. Everyone was so full of energy and vitality. I don’t think I could have imagined in my wildest dreams how fantastic the training was going to be. I now have some terrific coaches and NLP Practitioners to model! ………I now feel totally rejuvenated and ready to throw myself wholeheartedly into my coaching practice. I have also signed up for the Advanced Practitioner training in November which I know will take my expertise and knowledge to a whole other level. I feel truly honoured to be part of such a wonderful coaching community.”……Thank you Susan for sharing such sensational feedback – continue to strive for your goals and dreams and celebrate your successes along the way with those around you….!!
Something special was in the air at The Coaching Institute today. Now you know that Mastermind is truly an aspirational program for those wanting to step their business up to an even higher level. Well….today Masterminders were treated to the first day of a special bonus event……However we’ve been sworn to secrecy and the only thing that we can share was some feedback from one of the participants…”it was rockin….the value that was given during our session today will be used by the participants as a powerful addition to their coaching resources….”. Intrigued? So are we! ………Hopefully we can share more using our sensational persuasive powers however we’re not sure if we’re any match for the Masterminders!
The bad news is we’re coming to the end of another week – and what a week it was…..packed with sensational training programs such as NLP Practitioner training and Foundations of Coaching Success, the privilege of sharing the moment with students achieving great success through taking action and celebrating special events such as the birth of gorgeous Aidan James Murdoch and a number of birthday milestones within The Coaching Institute family. THE GOOD NEWS IS…..we’re heading into another week that is packed with activity….our first ever NLP Practitioner training in Sydney is drawing to an end, a secret and sensational bonus Mastermind event – Your Personal Success, other training programs such as How to Put Together Your Workshop, and Advanced Skills….phew! all this in one week!

When Julio De Lafitte offered to join the newest Mastermind Members in the 5-Day Closed Door Training at The Coaching Institute, he reflected on his own journey – “It’s like going into a Space Ship…..you know you are going into space, but you have no idea how cool the Supernova is going to be”.
Julio is Australia’s Master Wealth Propulsion Communicator, Owner of the fastest growing Wealth Propulsion business in the country…..”and then he became a Mastermind Member”. His businesses propelled to a greater level, the quality of his enquiries increased.
It’s a true reflection of a master, when he asks his audience – “How Can I serve You?”. To be a member of a community that gives support, especially when it all becomes overwhelming, is a MUST. At that moment, “overwhelm is the indication that you’re about to become a better YOU”….In this moment, who do you chose to be with? Is it with the group that will hold you accountable, are willing to share their knowledge with you and that you love hanging out with? That’s what JD loves about being a part of the Mastermind community, at The Coaching Institute. And….you know we totally understand how truly amazing this is……and how lucky those of us still early in our own coaching journey have the opportunity to learn and develop from such generous people. Thank you JD!
Breaking news from our first ever Neuro Linguistic Practitioner training in Sydney, is that our students are loving every minute and then some! Here is some feedback so far………………
“NLP has opened my eyes to a new, bright and happy world. I had the feeling that my map was so rigid that if a volcano or earth quake happened it would not change.
Thanks Alice for changing it in the first 2 hours of this wonderful course…”
You know, sometimes there are celebrations and then sometimes there are CELBRATIONS! And…..do we have we some celebrations to share with our coaching community today!…………
Firstly a huge welcome to our first group of students who are participating in the first ever NLP Practitioner training being run in Sydney from Tuesday 15th March until Monday 21st March. It is truly sensational for us to be able to offer this exceptional and ever popular training program not only in Melbourne – now also in Sydney! Enjoy the ride guys with our queen Alice at the helm!
And closer to our mother ship here in Melbourne (aka The Coaching Institute) we have had some massive reasons for celebration. Our professional language went out the window today when we ‘oohed and ahhed’ as Doc showed us photos of his new baby boy. Yes – Doc is a Dad!!!! Congratulations to Doc and his beautiful wife Beth on the birth of Aidan James Murdoch born Sunday 13th March weighing in at a healthy 8lbs 20ozs. We send lots of love to Aidan and cannot wait to get the chance to see him when he visits us here at The Coaching Institute.
And last but definitely not least, a huge Happy Birthday! to our gorgeous Course Consultant Annie T! We managed to help Annie celebrate in style by assisting her to eat a massive chocolate cake (with cherries galore!) and came back for seconds just to make sure Annie didn’t have to carry it home! We know that many of our students have started their journey with Annie so make sure you drop her a line and wish her many happy returns!
All in all it’s been a great start to the week and we look forward to sharing more with you as the week progresses. Don’t forget to check out Aidan James on facebook!
