The environment of support is the reason why our community of iPEC coaches remains so strong.
Bruce D Schneider is iPEC's founder and the author of Relax, You're Already Perfect and the blockbuster book, Energy Leadership. His groundbreaking theory of consciousness levels led him to create the transformational Core Energy Coaching™ process, as well as iPEC's proprietary Energy Leadership Index™ Assessment.
Those are just a few of Bruce D Schneider's accomplishments. This is how he got there:
Bruce's life was virtually over 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?
The drunk driver died instantly, and Bruce's survival was described as a near mathematical impossibility - recognized as a miracle by most. He could have viewed that experience in several ways. Perhaps he could have felt like a victim, or guilty for living while the other person died. Bruce's viewpoint was much different. Bruce saw this "horrific accident" for what it really was... an exceptional gift and opportunity. He was, at 18, given a second chance at life, and decided to make it a life worth living.
This "second chance" has motivated Bruce for more than 25 years through the study of psychology, coaching, hypnotherapy, metaphysical research, quantum physics, spiritual teachings, and decades of deep meditation. Through this journey, he found many answers, including his purpose:
"My role and gift in life is not to teach, preach, or convince anyone of anything. I am here to empower others to get their own answers, access their true dreams, and overcome anything that gets in the way of making those dreams a reality."
The impact of iPEC and its unique methods demonstrates the expression of Bruce's calling. Through iPEC he has touched the lives of hundreds of thousands of coaches and their clients.
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 a Master Certified Coach, licensed psychotherapist, Reiki master, hypnotherapist, metaphysician, philosopher, renowned speaker, and Founder and Chairman of the Board for the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching (iPEC).
