CERTIFIED PROFESSIONAL COACHING
GROW Training Institute has developed a complete CPC Certificate Program for individuals
and professionals who desire to become Certified Professional Coaches.
CERTIFIED PROFESSIONAL COACH PROGRAM
Part of the reason coaching offers such a huge potential for therapists is that there
is a large segment of the population who might never hire the services of a therapist,
but who would access the services of a personal or career coach, because of the
absence of “negative stigma.”
In fact, there is a positive stigma associated with coaching due to the fact that
it has been widely accepted in the athletic and business worlds. Coaching is now
the foremost method of training in the corporate arena.
The following are definitions of coaching by various professional associations:
GROW Training Institute: Assisting clients in goal achievement.
Coaching can be called “consulting,” however, traditional consulting is more focused
on organizational change and re-structure. Typically consulting is done in the
business setting, and is time limited. Coaching is more humanistic in nature,
more with the individual and his/her personal growth.
IAC: Empowering clients in ways which create structures for sustainable personal growth and professional improvements.
ICF: An ongoing professional relationship that helps people produce extraordinary results in their lives, careers, businesses or organizations. Throughout the process of coaching, clients deepen their learning, improve their performance, and enhance their quality of life.
Coachville: Coaches help players win, inspire an individual or team to achieve
a desired result, and unleash the greatness in people.
What People Are Saying About GROW's CPC Program!
I just wanted to let you know that I very much appreciated the workshop Friday and loved your spirit. Hopefully, becoming a CPC will allow me to see clients who want my strengths perspective and to fly above the radar as opposed to under it as I have during the past three and a half years. Thanks again for your generosity in what you promote. You clearly have found your niche and bravo to you for willingness to share it so magnanimously with others.

Your seminar lit a fire under me, or should I say a bonfire. I am making multiple changes, and almost feel overwhelmed that I can’t make them fast enough. One item on the list is to do your coaching training and become a CPC. I have had about 75-100 hours in the Corporate Coach U program, which I abandoned, realizing I was more of a therapist and didn’t want to work with the corporate world. Your exercise at the end of our seminar made me realize I had made coaching too complicated. Thanks for your motivation – your seminar more than paid for itself already.

In my years of training to be a coach, the best, most efficient and economical training I have found is yours, Lyn. That’s because your courses are designed by therapists for therapists. Your seminars are packed full of practical information that can be used to start a lucrative private coaching practice now. I have taken tons of coaching courses. Yours are the best.

I just went to a 3 day coach training through another coach organization and I must tell you, I don’t think that anybody that’s not a trained therapist should be allowed to coach. I want to commend you on the work you’re doing, because you are a therapist and already have an understanding of what we’re doing. You are doing really, really good work. And I am more behind you, beside you, in front of you, and around you than ever before because of what you’re doing. The quality that you are giving to professionals is invaluable. I just wanted to tell you that!
