I really had no idea what life coaching was, so I decided to sign up to The Coaching Institute.
I began my journey at The Coaching Institute when my husband had tickets to an event with Joe Pane.
When he arrived home that Friday evening, he was on a high. He started raving about what he had learned and thought I would also love what this was about.
He invited me to attend with him on the Saturday. After the first session, I was already liking what I was hearing.
We attended the rest of the weekend together. And, although he got a lot out of it, I was hooked! Everything Joe was talking about was what I was passionate about.
From Teacher to Life Coach: Changing Careers
I left with all these possibilities buzzing around in my head, as I had been searching for a change of direction in my career for some time.
That said, I certainly had no intention of leaving my teaching career just yet. I went away and pondered for a month or so.
Before that weekend, I really had no idea what life coaching even was.
I knew The Coaching Institute was a 'values match' for me, though. So I found out when the next Foundation of Coaching Success weekend was being held.
I decided to sign up to The Coaching Institute the night before. I signed up to Credential Practitioner of Coaching. Then, by the end of the first morning session of Foundation of Coaching Success, I had switched to become an Accredited Professional Coach.
