I am involved in something bigger than myself! | The Coaching Institute

I am involved in something bigger than myself!

I’ve been involved with the Coaching Institute for approx. 8 months. I commenced my journey enrolled in the Credentialed Advanced Practitioner course and quickly upgraded at my FOCS weekend to the Master Practitioner course simply because of my desire to know more about the amazing human mind. My background as a Registered Nurse and Midwife spans 20 years and the human body and mind never ceases to amaze me.

My decision to invest in a course at The Coaching Institute was professional and personal for me. As a Christian, years earlier I was told I would learn things that would give me an ‘understanding of the mechanics of what make people work, and do the things they do’, so after I saw the advertising for Life Coaching and learned more from TCI I had no hesitation to enrol.

From 2013 my husband Michael and I found ourselves assisting couples with communication challenges. I had designed a simple tool which we used for our monthly family meetings and sheepishly offered it to friends who were clearly having communication challenges. We saw amazing results; we were able to bring couples to a state of BEing by DOing. We simply added an adjunct to the BE DO HAVE model, we were now working with the DO BE DO HAVE model. Simply, we got some details out of the way for the BEing to start, but we had a heart to serve them so much more.

Our desire is to see people in the state of resilience, in a purpose driven life.  A state of being proactive rather than reactive, a state of being ‘prepared for that rainy day’ and prepared for end times. So with Michael, a Biosecurity expert qualified in Public Safety and Emergency Management, and my knowledge and skills for Preventative Nursing and Coaching – we knew we could assist people to be more prepared in different areas of their lives. As a result we are finalising 4 resilience packages.

The 4 resilience packages we offer are Spiritual Resilience, Health Resilience, Financial Resilience and Property Resilience. Our Health and Property Resilience packages are an amalgamation of all current community awareness programs. We specialise in delivering government campaigns ‘one on one’ as opposed to the current community engagement of ‘one to many’. My question to you is: Do you have your Emergency Kit in place, Fire plan etc? Do you have all your free preventative health screening for your age up to date? Do you know what’s available to you? Here at Team Lifesong we answer those questions and complete tasks with you, plus more.

We formed our business ‘Team Lifesong’ in Sept 2014. We are a team working with individuals and families to ‘Let their lifesong sing’. Team Lifesong is in its infancy and is being built as a prototype so that when and if, the time comes the business can be franchised to further prepare people for natural disasters, financial difficulty, any health malady that can be prevented and eternity.

Within Team Lifesong exists ‘Lifesong Coaching’ the heart of the business, the platform from which we deliver and the income producing activity. My coaching skills are being enhanced by my studies and acts like glue bringing everything we offer together for individuals and families.

But who could fully know the support, structure and accountability offered through TCI when enrolling in the course? The TCI support and structure prompted me to take the necessary steps to realise my own success more quickly. My journey so far includes amazing people and experiences.

I visited TCI Headquarters for 2 days as a prospective Sales Consultant meeting the Marvels Team. Immersed in the TCI culture I could see the passion and priorities that TCI possess. Thank you Sharon Pearson, Fiona Ellis and all the Team for helping me decide what I do want my purpose driven life to look like.

I achieved my First Paying Client by Week 5 of the TCI 90 Day Challenge. Thank you Mr Matt Lavars for the know-how and support, Mr Roger McDonald – for your Fortnight of Fortitude program and my Challenge buddy Debbie Schreurs. Following these steps and modelling success reaped results.

My success stems from the knowledge that I am involved in something bigger than myself. Aligning with The Coaching Institute has given me structure and know-how to move forward. So with my eye on the prize and consistent fruitful actions that model those who have gone before me, I thank God for the opportunity to serve Him and others in this way.

Thanks TCI, blessings to you!
