Wellness Coach Training Programs: Pillar 2 - Core Coaching Method ™
See How Our Proprietary Coaching Methodology Will Help You Change Lives
The CORE Coaching Method™ (CCM) is the second pillar of the IAWP Wellness Coach Certification and is our proprietary coaching method. During your CORE Coach Training, you’ll learn how to coach clients to get to the core of their challenges and finally breakthrough to reach their goals.
The CORE Coaching Method™ combines the art of coaching with proven, cutting-edge psychology techniques that address how the brain works in order to help your client make lasting changes.
But CCM is not just about “changing our habits” for the short-term, instead it’s about creating lasting transformations for life by helping clients get to the root of their patterns.
Our CORE Coaching Method™ is a powerful nine step process that our students, graduates and their clients have said is like no other self-growth process they have ever experienced before. Why is that? Let’s take a closer look…
Why are coaches using the CORE Coaching Method™ so effective at changing lives?
First, the The CORE Coaching Method™ is client centered.
As a coach, your client has the power to change their life, but they need some one who can guide them and show them the way. Unfortunately in many coaching processes, the coach positions him or herself as an expert and believes that they have the power to change their client rather than the other way around.
While the coach may have a lot of experience and knowledge to impart, this positioning does not work to motivate clients. It relies on an old health model where the “guru” knows all and the patient should just “do what they are told”.
Unfortunately this is disempowering not only for the client, but also for the coach, who feels they must know everything and ensure their client listens to their advice. If a client does not listen to you, then you have failed.
CCM is not about motivating people to change with unsolicited advice, cheerleading or even fear, rather it’s about helping them to find their own inner motivation. It’s a new, transformative way of empowering people to make changes in their life. When a coaching client is empowered to solve their own challenge with the guidance of an effective coach, goals can be achieved quickly and maintained for the long-term.
The second reason CCM is so powerful is because it gets to the root cause of a client’s issue.
Rather than telling someone what they should do, IAWP Wellness Coaches go deeper and use CCM to discover what is truly holding a person back from getting what they say they desire. Most people inherently know what they should be doing, but aren’t doing it for some reason. A reason that is not on the surface, but can be discovered with the support of a CCM trained coach.
Let’s take an example to see how CCM supports a client to get to the root cause of their challenge. If you had a coaching client that wanted to lose weight, you might share with them your advice on exactly what to do and when to exercise to ensure they reach their goal. Your client may follow your advice… for awhile. But in many cases, they will “fall off the bandwagon” after a few short weeks or months because they did not discover the underlying causes of why they overeat or why they are overweight.
Perhaps it’s due to a belief they took on when they were younger about themselves. Or perhaps it’s because they are subconsciously holding themselves back from another present goal.
Using the CORE Coaching Method, IAWP Wellness Coaches go beyond advice-giving and follow a proven method to support a client to discover what the hidden obstacle is so they can finally address it and overcome it. This supports the client to then be able to receive the coach’s advice once they are free and clear of the inner block that was preventing them from moving forward.
The third reason CCM is unique is that it was developed from real experience with real clients.
Some coaching methods have been created in a box using coaching theories but are never tested in a real-life setting with real clients.
CCM was developed in a real coaching practice where actual clients experienced it and helped it take shape to become the method it is today.
IAWP’s Founder Suzanne Monroe developed the CORE Coaching Method in her own holistic wellness coaching practice. She was frustrated after her own coach training that she was not able to help people reach their goals. This led her to work directly with her own clients and tweak and test her findings. When she saw the amazing results they were achieving, she knew she could not keep the method to herself.
Suzanne then went on to teach this method to IAWP Wellness Coaches and saw how it impacted their personal lives directly – not only were they able to help their own clients with great results, they were more confident, empowered as coaches themselves.
