The Coaching Institute testimonials mean so much to us -- they are proof that we are developing great coaches and, more importantly, positively impacting peoples’ lives. Check out a few of our student testimonials below.
1. Yaja Nowakowski - ICG International Accredited Professional Master Coach
I wasn’t consciously looking for coaching training. Nope, nada.
I’d completed numerous professional development courses over time, but did they help me further my career? Did they really make a difference? Some. A little. I was tired of doing stuff I believed was expected of me in order to keep a ‘good’ job, progress in a job, get a salary increase. I felt I was selling my soul, selling myself short, compromising my principles, my values. And this was why I opted to get out of the corporate world.
In the interim I started drive-sharing. My elusive business would be one I’d be passionate about and the product would be of intrinsic value to others. What the business would be, I had no idea.
Then, one Saturday morning at the end of a long night of driving, I picked up my last ride, a young guy. We chatted, connected and he got out at The Coaching Institute. Within a half hour I joined in the free 2-day event, my introduction to what coaching is really about. My ride, was (and is) one of the many The Coaching Institute senior coaches, mentors and presenters.
That day was a revelation, that this was it, my new business. I connected the dots, I saw the pattern of how I got to be there and it made sense. Decades of personal development stuff, lots of jobs doing and giving, my moves interstate and overseas—were part of the pattern. As was that I generally found myself giving more, because that’s what I believed was how you work. This left me exhausted, depleted, empty.
Now it made sense. The pattern was complete to that point. DOING and GIVING. Little was about BEING and HAVING. And that’s the perspective this school works from first. It's the core strength of the soul. The rest comes naturally, once we integrate being and having first. I signed up for the full 3-year Pro Coach course.
I’m now in my training where I’m already coaching and have access to an incredible coaching/coaching business education. Supportive coaches are now available to me so I can continue to value myself first, reflecting to my clients who they can be. The school's mentors guide me with the growth of my business. My vision is to present to large groups personally and online as well as coaching one-to-one. How good is that!
Thanks so much to everyone at The Coaching Institute and the The Coaching Institute student community.
2. Peta Lazarides - ICG International Accredited Professional Master Coach
I found The Coaching Institute when I was looking for missing pieces of the jigsaw in my personal and professional life. I found so much more! I found a community of like-minded people who want to contribute, who champion each other on, who have the same vision of helping others, all in their own unique way. It has been like peeling off the layers and awakening once again. The things I am learning and the growth I am experiencing as a person is so exciting for me, Im so looking forward to sharing my new found knowledge with the world and changing lives. Thankyou The Coaching Institute !
3. Jennie Tran - ICG International Credentialed Master Practitioner of Coaching
Love and Gratitude - August 2014 I began my coaching study and training at The Coaching Institute and wow, my mind and my life just opened up. There were so much to take it, and I was loving it. I gain insights and information that are so compelling and useful to help me move up and move forward in my life and work. Before The Coaching Institute I was searching for a new path to tread on, one that will allow me to make a huge difference in the world and in my own life (that empower, inspire, grow and of excellence).
I had no idea what that was, only just this criteria for my search. Once I got to The Coaching Institute, the answer was loud and clear (like The Coaching Institute) - coaching and training was my vehicle and my way of doing that - making a positive difference to people's lives. I am so grateful that Sharon Pearson created The Coaching Institute, Joe Pane, all the The Coaching Institute team including mentors and facilitators and awesome community for their support, encouragement and input.
Whenever I am stuck and unsure about something, I would just call the WOW team and be guided and helped. I feel very confident that I can make a huge difference in helping so many people lives with the course and training offered at The Coaching Institute. Thank you Sharon and Joe for inspiring and training me to be all that I can be, so that I can be of service to so many people's growth and development, and allowing me to add my little touch of love and sunshine to this amazing world we all share regardless who we are and where we are from.
4. Nicole Robinson - ICG International Credentialed Master Practitioner of Coaching
When I joined The Coaching Institute it I chose diploma because of the NLP training which I had experienced 10 years ago. Fast forward and Meta Dynamics is NLP on steroids. Sharon Pearson the presenter is a rockstar constantly challenging you to think, feel and live the experience . this is not for the faint hearted if you want to take your coaching, business and life to the next level get in the room.
5. Craig W Birse - ICG International Accredited Professional Master Coach
Joining The Coaching Institute has been an experience like no other. The value that The Coaching Institute gives cannot be compared to anything I have been exposed to previously. The Coaching Institute keeps on giving at every turn and stretch of the journey.
After recently completing META 1 I was again blown away by the professionalism of the organisation and the depth of the knowledge available to tap into should you decide to. The transformations occurring before your eyes in the room are outstanding on so many levels.
Anyone looking for a change and seeking the best training available and a supportive community which is second to none you have to make The Coaching Institute your last stop.
6. John Grant Harvey - ICG International Accredited Professional Master Coach
The Coaching Institute have exceeded my expectations. I have done a lot of personal development training in my days and worked with a number of top schools but for me The Coaching Institute really over deliver. Each of the training's have provided me with insights that were both timely and relevant to my life. The highlight so far for me was Meta 1. Beyond words.
I personally recommend The Coaching Institute to anyone wanting the best of training guided by a team that truly care. Thank you The Coaching Institute love you guys and all that you do. xx
7. Jodie Hunter - ICG International Accredited Professional Master Coach
Since joining the The Coaching Institute community and taking that step to becoming a life coach, my life has never looked the same. Prior to enrolling I used to get up every day to my own private Groundhog Day where everything felt pretty lifeless and looked 'beige'. Now my life is pumping with variety and is vivid technicolor! I have a whole new skill-set that grows everyday as I grow.
I have an incredible new group of friends who get me! I always have many people I can look to for support on the journey, and I have been making a difference to all of those I serve through my coaching. In terms of my vocation - this is the single most valuable decision I have made in my life and I now have The Coaching Institute and the community forever. GOLD!!!
8. Nicky Thomas - ICG International Accredited Professional Master Coach
After experiencing other membership groups, there was a chance I was in for the same this with The Coaching Institute - a lot of upfront promise and poor delivery- I couldn't have been more pleasantly surprised! The culture that has been created by Sharon and the team is upheld by every member of the community through the assumption that we will all conduct ourselves in this manner. In joining the The Coaching Institute community, I have been given access to a 1 stop shop for everything I need to build a coaching practice: business skills, coaching skills, mentoring and most of all an amazingly supportive community with integrity to match. In my experience - this is rare. To say this decision has changed my life is a massive understatement! Rock On The Coaching Institute
9. Grace Sharon – ICG International Credentialed Master Practitioner of Coaching
I have never felt like I belong anywhere before but I do belong at The Coaching Institute. The Coaching Institute, for me, brings awareness of self and the other in a way that stops the revolving door for repeat behaviour patterns that does nothing to serve our humanity How - by techniques that actually work, that actually give life and not take it away. Why is this important? It is important because unconditional, non-judgmental love is very hard to find these days but at The Coaching Institute, our thoughts matter, matter enough to be challenged, broken through, ripped up and thrown away if they do not serve, support, nurture or challenge us as human beings. It is important at The Coaching Institute, that someone in the world loves us enough to do the hard roads themselves and then is there for us to challenge us to do the hard roads ourselves.
They don't pump our weights, we do, that is why we are transformed human beings. We replace the old belief system about ourselves with new ones, so that we can be the best that we can be. No one is usually prepared to take the risk of truth, telling it as it is so that we can grow as human beings, as friends, as family, and active citizens in society. The Coaching Institute Coaches take that risk.
The Coaching Institute is excellent. The Coaching Institute is worth five stars. The Coaching Institute is waiting for you to join us. Just say yes, and let the universe work how you're going to do it. Look forward to seeing you and hearing all the great things that you are going to do on your journey with us. Welcome and belong. We love all our community members and will be there when the road gets tough, and to celebrate with you through all your wins. Rise higher than you have ever risen before, or believed that you could. You are an eagle about to fly. Take off and enjoy the ride.
