Module 1

Life & Leadership Potentials

The first 3-day intensive, face-to-face weekend of iPEC's Coach Training Program is invigorating and inspiring. It gives you the opportunity to experience the power of Core Energy Coaching™ firsthand and provides practical knowledge about how to utilize its potential in many aspects of your life.

You'll learn transformational coaching skills that help you get to the core of clients' belief systems, challenge their paradigms, shift their energy, and open up infinite new possibilities. You'll also learn foundational theory and application to move your clients forward with clear next steps to form well-thought plans and hold them accountable to the progress that they want to make. Most importantly, in all live modules, you'll coach and receive feedback.

You'll quickly realize that you won't be learning through a boring lecture or academic format. Instead, you'll live the process and by doing so, have the experience of a lifetime.

Between Module Work

Application, Integration, and Enhancement - 12 weeks

Following Module 1, you'll integrate what you've learned through a combination of peer work, mentor coaching, teleclasses, required reading, and self-study assignments.

The assignments, mentoring, and teleclasses will specifically challenge you to apply what you learned in the first module and expand your knowledge on key coaching topics.

Module 2

Core Transformation

By exploring and challenging current thinking and emotional patterns, you'll learn to assist your clients in each area of life, then create powerful action plans that lead to significant change.

This module builds upon everything you learned in Module 1 and applies this information and experience to eight of the main areas of focus in a client's life. It covers many of the most common client concerns, questions, and issues that you might encounter during your coaching experiences. Through a variety of means, you'll develop and refine new and advanced coaching skills. By the end of this module, you'll be ready to select, develop, and practice your area of coaching specialization.

Between Module Work

Application, Integration, and Coaching Specialization - 12 weeks

In addition to the integration work you've already begun, you'll now select a coaching specialization or "major" from one of eight primary coaching fields. You'll select a focus in corporate, executive, life purpose, transition, health and wellness, professionals, business, or relationship coaching in order to develop your expertise in that area.

Module 3

Breakthrough Coaching

You'll understand and explore core (near-causal) thinking and break through deep physical, emotional, psychological, and spiritual blocks to success. You'll also gain the knowledge and skills you need to create sustainable, long-term change.

In this module, you'll continue to develop your area of specialization and have ample opportunity to practice coaching situations within that area. New and deeper opportunities are provided for you to demonstrate and apply life-changing empowerment and engagement skills within a wide variety of coaching settings. 

You will also learn how to administer and debrief the Energy Leadership Index™ Assessment. This groundbreaking assessment, taken by over 25,000 people to date, identifies the filters through which your clients approach life—providing deep insights into their beliefs and blocks. This knowledge facilitates rapid and enduring change.

You'll also be introduced to iPEC's client systems: the Energy Leadership Development System™ and the Law of Being™. These two professionally written, ready-made programs will help you jumpstart your coaching business and give your clients and prospects tangible feedback and long-lasting results.
