The biggest learning is that you don’t need the “why” to start moving toward a solution. I know have a framework that I can always go back on with solution focused coaching. I feel a lot calmer now when I enter into session. I really enjoyed the time together! My main learning is that we all need feedback: in the session, in the peer-groups and in the mentoring. I am going to miss Monday mornings!
I could take this class because it fit with my family life. I gained a lot of coaching experience, and a lot of knowledge. I did not think I could take an online course and take it to the end, but the course was so exciting that I am not sure that there is much else to gain from a face to face course. I totally loved the sessions and I would highly recommend it!
I have really enjoyed this class! What I enjoyed most is the diverse and inclusive environment that you have created. You grow and gain an international network which allows you to increase your business potential. It’s also increased my awareness as to why you need PROFESSIONAL coaching skills and it has given me those skills!
I was really amazed by the level of relationships that were built by this group. I feel totally connected to everybody out there. I enrolled because I wanted an ICF certification and I certainly got all I need for that, but I got so much more: honing my 1 to 1 coaching practice, developing my skills in coaching teams and organizations. I always was a bit scared of conflict situations: now I look forward to them!
I travel around the world and all I need now is internet access or a phone line to join in and participate. If I want to review and study, I can go to the backend and review the sessions. What I truly love is the field of international peers that I meet!
It has been very valuable having the coaching toolset also for teaching. Using Solution Focused Coaching really helps get to a result with the children because it is really driven by “what are we going to do next”. I am now combining it with yoga — there are a lot of synergies.
I work with a solution focused approach now. In order to be effective in my job, working with disabled people, I took the course to learn the subtle nuances of the approach. I understood that it is best for the coach to use simple 5$ words and not use words that are hard to understand.
I joined Kirsten’s program especially because I wanted to improve my coaching. I would really recommend her program because it gives you insights and new ideas on how to approach work with teams and also organizations.
