Be a Professional Life Coach | The Coaching Institute

What Is Life Coaching?

Life Coaching is now the fastest growing field of personal development in the world...

Have you ever felt ‘stuck’ or confused about what you should do?

Have you ever wanted to achieve a new level of success in an area of your life that is already working for you?

Professional life coaching is about assisting a client in closing the gap between where they are and where they want to be. It’s about working with someone who wants to achieve more in their life. An effective coach will assist their client in discovering what is important to them, what is missing from their life or their business and what outcomes they are looking for. They will then ask questions, listen, and reflect back what they hear, challenging their client’s thinking in such a way that the client will consider new ways of creating the transformation they are seeking.

Through working with a professional life coach, clients achieve the outcomes they are looking for faster and more effortlessly. Coaching clients report greater levels of confidence, self esteem, passion for life, enhanced relationships and a far more focused approach to their life and to their business.

What Do Your Accreditations Mean To Me?

Accreditation is one of the few ways of assessing competence in an unregulated industry. Until the government limits who can call themselves life coaches, this is the best way to ensure you have the level of training and expertise you require.

Ever since growing up in Soviet Union I wanted to learn and contribute to success and excellence of human kind. My first personal encounter with coaching came from professional sports industry. The coaching system 25 years ago was specifically oriented towards development of physical strength and resilience required to excel in sports competition. There was not much attention directed towards building personal mental strength.

I started my adventure with TCI back in mid-February 2014 and I haven’t looked back since. My journey really started in August 2013 when I decided to resign from my position of Chief Financial Officer at a firm in Melbourne. I had been a charted management accountant and held various accounting and leadership roles in the corporate sector for 20 years but something had not felt right for me for a while. On hindsight, I was lucky enough to have a boss who was not the kindest of men and that hurtled me into what some might see as drastic action; to resign without another job lined up in a down turning job market.

Before I started with TCI and more time than I care to admit, I was a real pain in the butt! Seriously – I even pained my own butt! The thing is, I couldn’t even see it! I was too busy blaming the ex, the money, the boss, the past, the old friend, the postie that smiled so much, the neighbours, blah blah blah! I was living my own Groundhog Day. My life getting smaller and smaller, in a career as an accountant where each day I would see the front office door and feel like I needed to squish myself into this little box just to get me through the front door. By the end of the day I would leave and be flat, uninspired and miserable. The security of a consistent paycheck was the only thing that I felt kept me turning up each day, year after year. The thought of having just turned 42 and seeing my future as this just made me cringe. I knew something had to change……..and change it did.

I joined TCI in November 2013, and did my intake weekend just 3 days after I signed up. Talk about a fast start! The training was an experience like no other. What was special for me was I attended the training with my lovely wife Manasee. There was lots that we both learnt from the training, and I still implement those learnings in my coaching today.

SO there I was, with my dream job! I didn’t even know when I began my career 11years ago that coaching was a “thing”. Nonetheless, after 9 years working with a leading travel company, I landed what would become, the best job I had ever had...until....I was made redundant. Faced with less appealing choices (once you’ve found your dream job it’s difficult to un-know that pleasure!), I decided that if there was not an opportunity at my dream employer, then...I would just go out and create my own!

I signed up with The Coaching Institute in February 2015 and did my intake weekend in April 2015, and this is where everything in my life started making sense. I had been on a personal development journey the two years prior to signing up, and in this time since 2013 I was really focused on finding my passion and purpose in life. I had my own coach and mentor for 2 years, and it turned out that coaching was the fuel that gives my life so much joy and purpose. So when I came to the intake weekend it was the confirmation that I had been waiting for, that this was definitely the path for me.

I did my first intake weekend on the 10-12 December 2014. I initially joined the Coaching Institute to learn how to ask the questions that led people to think about how they think as an ongoing desire to learn and to help others to change the way they thought which I had been blogging about for about a year. It took me a good day and a half to settle into the course, part of my feeling was that I was hearing a lot of things that I had already done in the last 5 years, and the other part is that I am a very quiet introvert, expressing emotions in terms of wow, great and amazing is not part of being me. The training did help to expand my thinking on the possibilities. It finally came together for me on the last day, watching some-one being coached.

Wow. I enrolled with TCI in December 2014, and attended the FOCS intake in January 2015. That weekend was the beginning of the rest of my life. I thought I knew who I was; I was successful in my career creating and being a part of many memorable moments as a jewellery designer and knew the path I wanted to take, until after my experience with Joe Pane and all of the wonderful people I met that weekend.

I had enrolled in November 2014 attended the December FOCS weekend. What an amazing weekend. My journey started a while before. I had been working as an electronic service technician for a local company for about 4 years, and 30+ years in electronics and IT. I had been struggling a bit as I needed to find or start a business for my financial and lifestyle future, my pensions just would not cut it!

My Name is Tony Nassar from Cooma NSW. I first enrolled at The Coaching Institute in 2012 as an Advanced Practitioner in order to further my professional development for my then running business and practice, ‘Alpine Therapy Centre’. I have been practicing as a Subconscious-mind Therapist for approximately twelve years, and through my practice found a great enlightenment in helping others. I also found that through my Therapeutic work, my clients would return asking me a similar questions...’now what else can I do’. It was that question that led me to gain further knowledge about coaching.

I first attended TCI in May 2014 after a few months of researching coaching courses online. I was fairly confident TCI was for me based on what I had seen on the website, and as I stepped into the foyer I knew it was absolutely where I needed to be. Listening to Joe Pane talk for a full day (it felt like 10 minutes) reaffirmed the learning I was going to receive was going to be of great quality, and taught by exceptional trainers. I waited very patiently and with great anticipation for my intake weekend, which happened a few months later in early September.

It took me a while to write this success story, it has been sitting on my to do list since October! As I re-read the belief I have on my wall it says “Success to me is measured by the fun I am having, the lessons I learn and the people I connect with. I am already succeeding.” There has been a ton of success already and it is now time to write this based on my awesome empowering belief above. I have soooooo much fun, I learn something new everyday and the people I meet are AMAZING!

In December 2014 I attended some awesome Extended DISC training at TCI. At the time I had no idea how much I would get from this training both in my personal and work life. In January after one month off I returned to my full time employment and decided to share my EDISC profile with my Boss. Our relationship had been challenging to say the least in a covert kind of way. This equates to; we didn’t have outward contempt for each other but we ‘annoyed’ each other. Probably more to the point he absolutely frustrated the ‘crap’ out of me because he wouldn’t make a decision; or so I thought.
