The Power of Coaching

The Power of Coaching

Image source:

Forbes cited it as the second fastest growing profession in the country, Fortune 1000 companies have used it to transform their organizations, and testimonials from around the world keep pouring in about the power of professional coaching. Yet with all this, relatively few people even know what coaching really is. In fact, it is estimated that only about 15% of the general population has heard about professional coaching, and less even is aware of its true identity and power.

This article will help you understand what professional coaching is, what it isnt, who does it, and more. First lets clear up a myth. Coaching, as we think of it today, is not that new. People have been doing variations of it for decades. It is, however, only recently that coaching has turned into a profession that is governed by a board; with guidelines, standards of conduct, and a code of ethics and that is why the profession is taking off as it is.

What is coaching?

Coaching is a very unique profession. It utilizes the best of therapy, consulting, mentoring, and even friendship, to create a unique client-helper relationship. This relationship is a powerful alliancea partnership of sortsto help clients manage their lives, create more fulfillment, and live their dreams.

This is very different from traditional helping modes, where people want to get themselves or their businesses fixed. Coaching focuses on solutions, not problems, to help move people and organizations from good to great.

IPEC (The Institute for Professional Empowerment Coaching) defines coaching as a process that helps people tap into their inner purpose and passion and connect that with outer goals and tasks, to achieve extraordinary results. These results range from improved self-esteem and relationships to the successful running of a fortune 500 company. It is almost impossible to describe the remarkable, and sometimes miraculous results that come from the coaching relationship. Maybe the old Mikey adage is best, Try it, youll like it!

What isnt coaching?

Most people who call themselves coaches are usually consultants or therapists, and although coaching has its basis in both, it is very, very different. The main difference between consultants and coaches is that a consultant promotes himself or herself as the expert in certain aspects of life, and the coach accepts that the client is the expert and has within him/her the answer to any situation he/she may face. Also coaches stick with clients to implement plans of action, while consultants usually do not participate in this type of relationship and leave clients to implement the plan of action on his/her own.

The therapists typical functions are to help clients fix problems, overcome issues, and sometimes manage mental illness. Coaches do not work with mental illness nor spend much time on client issues or problems. In fact, Certified Empowerment Coaches (the designation received from training with IPEC) do not see anything as a problem, only a situation or opportunity. Coaches focus on solutions. They do not dwell on the clients past nor try to analyze behavior. Coachings focus isnt so much on why, but how, to achieve powerful results.

Who does professional coaching?

Worldwide, there are an estimated 50,000 people calling themselves coaches, while the International Coach Federation (coachings one and only governing board) reports only 6,000 members. This is important to know because most so-called coaches are not trained professionals. Below are the most important points in determining a professional coach.

1) Certification: Certification is very important, because true coaching is a profession that requires very specific skills, conduct standards, and a foundation of training, which is only taught in qualified schools. Regardless of what some may try to tell you, life experience and other types of experience or training are not enough. Would you hire a surgeon who didn't have formal training?

2) References: An effective coach will have happy and satisfied clients who, after contracting the services of the coach, have made significant changes in their lives. Note: when asking for references make sure the people have actually been coached by the coach. Some people give references of friends or people that they have worked with in some unrelated manner.

3) A good match: An effective coach for one person, may not be a good match for another. To find a good match, it's best to speak directly with your potential coach and ask for a sample session. You'll want to be sure you feel comfortable enough to work with your coach on a regular basis.

What will coaching training do for me?

Besides receiving an accredited certification and the backbone for a fulfilling career, IPECs coaching training is life transformational. As you become a professional coach, you gain self-awareness and realization, improve all your relationships, become more conscious, and develop a life-long support team and family.

To summarize, coaching is a very unique profession that takes the best from many other professions to create a powerful alliance that transforms lives.

Author's Bio: 

Bruce D Schneider was virtually dead at age 18. In 1978, a late-evening highway encounter with a drunk driver left him on his deathbed. Miraculously, he not only survived this horrific accident, but against all odds, went on to a complete recovery. Why?

This is the question that has motivated him for more than twenty years through the study of psychology, hypnotherapy, metaphysical research, spiritual teachings, and countless hours of personal meditation. Bruce found his answers, and his purpose to empower others to get their answers.

No longer the object of wonder to the medical community, Dr. Schneider is again the focus of attention this time with his acclaimed book, Relax, Youre Already Perfect: 10 Spiritual Lessons to Remember (Hampton Roads Publishing), and his powerful and inspiring workshops, seminars, coaching sessions, and professional coaching training.

Dr. Schneiders message is profoundly simple: Open your eyes to your magnificence and limitless possibilities appear. His renowned book details this principle through ten empowering, and sometimes eye-opening, lessons. Filled with practical applications for an everyday spiritual experience, his book is being recognized by leaders in the New Consciousness movement and Self-help genre, such as James Redfield (author of The Celestine Prophecy) Stephen Rechtschaffen, Ph.D. (author of TimeShifting and co-founder of the Omega Institute) and Carolyn Myss, Ph.D., (author of Anatomy of the Spirit). Myss calls it Some of the best practical advice on spiritual self-help that I have ever read!

Testimonials about the impact of Bruces work are mounting. His lecture and workshop attendees have reported life-changing results from powerful and practical information and exercises. Participants are surprised to learn that enhanced happiness, health, wisdom, and wealth are within their reach not by driving themselves to make things happen but by breaking though their own self-created limitations and finding their own power and gifts to share with everyone around them.

Bruce was awarded undergraduate and graduate degrees from William Paterson College and Rutgers University, respectively. A successful entrepreneur, business executive, and former semi-professional athlete, he is the founder and director of the Institute for Professional Empowerment Coaching in New Jersey and California,.

The Parable of the Frog A Story of Change

The Parable of the Frog A Story of Change

Image source:

"Do not consider painful what is good for you."
-- Euripides

A few years ago some scientists conducted an experiment involving a little frog. In their lab was a vat of steaming, boiling hot water. They wanted to determine how the frog would react when dropped into the vat.

Armed in their white aprons, clipboards, pencils, goggles, and rubber gloves, they held the squirming little frog over vat. Focusing intently on what they were about to do they dropped the frog


Faster than a bolt of blazed lightning that little guy burst into the air, careening off the ceiling!

"Hmmmmm," the scientists murmured amongst themselves.

They did it again. Same frog, same vat of steaming water and


It blasted from that vat like a bat out of Hades!

The scientists murmured amongst themselves again, recorded their notes, and decided to take the experiment a step further. They took the same frog, and held it over a different vat of water. Only this time the water was lukewarm, not too cold, not too hot just right. They dropped the frog and


The little guy just laid there, floating lazily; arms and legs splayed gently on the water's surface. You can just imagine the frog's thoughts: Man, this is all right! This is perfect.

The frog laid in the water contented, happy, and relaxed. But - What the frog didn't know was that underneath the vat was a raging fire. It was slowly, but surely, heating the vat of water. The contented frog, oblivious to the changing temperature, boiled to death. End of story.

You're probably thinking to yourself: what a terrible story.

Think again. Apply this story of the frog to that of your own life right now. If any of you are like me, then you've probably come to a startling revelation. If you are really serious about being successful in achieving your goals in life, you need to make some changes.

If you're not moving in the direction you need to go in order to realize your visions, your dreams, your aspirations in life guess what? You'll end up like our little frog. You'll die in your own complacency, mediocrity and contentment; a part of the 95% of folks who don't quite make it in life.

Read the quote at the beginning of this article. For me the quote is quite profound. And if you take it to heart, if you follow a solid game plan, if you study hard, work hard, put in the time and effort success requires you'll make it. You'll win.

Get started. Model yourselves after those who are succeeding. Two things I've learned about folks who succeed in their endeavors:

1. They work extraordinarily hard: 12-14 hour days are the norm. In fact, I catch these people up at 3 or 4 in the mornings working towards their dreams.

2. The other quality that really separates them is integrity! Reliable, trustworthy, dependable. They adhere to the KISS principle: Keep It Simple Stupid! Their daily plan is simple, consistent, persistent and real.

So, where are you? Where are you going? What are your goals? How are you going to get there? Are you making any progress?

It's been said that there are two things in life that are certain: death and taxes. Now we know there's a third: change. It you're not going anywhere, you may be like our little frog friend. Be wary of contentment and complacency; never accept mediocrity. Follow the winners! You CAN do it!

The Obituary Exercise

The Obituary Exercise

Image source:

Today, let's talk about what I call the obituary exercise. And by the way, I want you to know that I teach this and actually guide people through it at my $50,000 Destiny Creator intensive seminars and eventsso it's like major technology.

The idea is this. Whatever age you're at, project yourself forward on one strand down the negative path, the way you are now, down the status quoand on one strand down the path of discipline, the path of the resources, time, work, and effort that you know you need to invest to make things happen.

And write your obituary two different ways; write it as a failure, as a life of mediocrity, a life that you're continuing and that you're right now on the path of. Where will the eventual end of the path that you are living right now lead to?

Write another obituary that leads to the place where you are fulfilled, where you have lived a life that made a difference to others, where you have love in your life, where you have lived a life of economic freedom, and the trips, and the journeys and all the contributions you wanted to make.

I bet you'll see some amazing things that will help you make the right choices. I know that when I did it you know what? I've already outlived my negative motivation date of death.

When I did it as the life of underachievement, the life of permanent potential, the life of always intending to but always having a job and not finding the time because I was tired when I got home from work, and it cost money to attend the seminar that I suspected wouldand of course eventually did turn things around for me
I died at 57 in a godforsaken place, under public care, alone.

And when they wrote the obituary, it was basically two paragraphs because there wasn't much more to say than to identify who I was, and to identify that I had a son and a daughterand I died alone, remember. And they identified that I had three language degrees, and that I'd always said I was going to be a great writer and I had a lot of potential.

On the other side, I died at 102, surrounded by over 80 peoplemy family, my kids, their husbands and wives, their kids and their kids' kidsin a private hospital in a place where it was like paradise.

And I had a string of 42 different books and works, and I had been speaking, and I had circled the globe. And I had an influence that had personally helped countless thousands, and the books had sold into the millions. And that influence had really revolutionized the world, through a positive benefit.

And folks, the difference between those two obituaries remains with me today.

The difference between those two obituarieswhen you write your own story of the eventual outcome of your life, living the life of mediocrity or living the life that takes more, the life of achievement, the life of strenuous liberty versus the life of slavery and bondage with easewill motivate you to do what you know you ought to do these present days.

The Necessity of Good Work Ethics

The Necessity of Good Work Ethics

Image source:

A good work ethic is a skill that needs to be acquired, although some people believe that it is a natural attitude or behaviour of an individual. It is often said that, with a changing workplace environment, it is necessary to change workplace ethics too!

Good work ethics includes a positive attitude with all work projects and having a good relationship with other people inside the workplace. Hence, work ethics are probably the most important asset that every individual should have in the workplace. But, what is the significance of work or business ethics to the people?

Running a business requires adequate consideration given to a number of issues outside the traditional scope of making money, of which ethics is most certainly one. Does it mean that business managers or executives should not only understand finance and marketing but also should study the business ethics? What is the impact of studying business ethics to the company?

As a business grows and becomes more significant, any individuals that work under the name of a certain company make an impact on the lives and circumstances of people in different ways. Thus, business ethics is especially important in dealing with customers.

Impacts of Business Ethics on the Company

It is perfectly reasonable to ask why it is necessary to be good. The question itself implies a positive answer. Most often, good behaviour brings its own reward; although ethics is not the same as self interest, business executives often believe that these things are the same. An ethical company is more likely to build a good reputation, which will most likely bring financial rewards over the long term. However, not all people can perform the right ethics in the workplace, only those people who are interested and ethically understand their functions and value to the company.

Cultural Ethics Increasing Trust and Driving Down Risks

An organization with strong ethical values, from top executives to managers to workers, tends to experience less misconduct, and thus less retaliation on the job. Many people ask why ethics is such a vital component of management practice and business leadership. It has been said that companies cannot be competitive at either national or international levels, without the practice and application of business ethics; with ethics both the company and workers feel an obligation to consider not only their own personal well-being but also the welfare of the entire group as a whole.

Creating an Ethical Workplace

Business managers in organization commonly strive to encourage ethical practices in order to ensure moral conduct and to gain a business advantage. One of the effective ways to promote ethics in the workplace is to provide the work force with appropriate training.

Business ethics is an important responsibility of everybody in the workplace; it is not just the responsibility of business executives and business managers in the company, but also it is a social responsibility of the workers. Thus, it is necessary not to wait to let other people tell you about your behaviour but, you need to work out your values in order to fit in a particular harmonized and ethical group.
