I started this journey as the biggest procrastinator. Believe it or not, I spent five years looking at The Coaching Institute’s website, without ever taking action. I went through a succession of jobs.
I had a fascination with human behaviour. I loved working with people – and then I found TCI. The turning point in my coaching journey was moving to Melbourne and studying neuro-linguistic programing (now Meta Dynamics). This program truly took my coaching to the next level. I also attended How to Run a Successful Workshop training – which, while a stretch, totally changed the course of my life.
Now, thanks to the TCI path, I have been able to break into an industry I have spent years trying to enter, and I have a job which I love and am passionate about. I get to spend every day doing the thing I love: working with people to maximise their success. I’m gaining valuable experience that I can translate directly into my coaching.
My number one piece of advice is to apply the knowledge. Allow yourself to be flexible in what you learn. Listen to your gut: your instincts are always right. This whole journey is a learning curve. Embrace it.
The Coaching Institute nurtures and supports me in a judgement-free environment. They’re going to hold you accountable and responsible for my learning – I always know it. Their willingness to point me in the right direction, and their openness in their knowledge is incredible.
From here, I can only grow. I’m innovating. I’m building new products and services for my clients. It’s just awesome.
