I have always known that I had a passion for helping people and a love for leadership. I spent over 15 years of my life working for someone else in Corporate America or employed in a small business environment. I enjoyed taking the lead and helping companies grow in human potential and profits but I always felt something was missing. Drained from the constant turmoil of the rat race, one day I finally made a huge decision to change the path of my career, and that was when I found iPEC. Through taking the course with iPEC, I discovered the power of the Core Energy Coaching process, which not only helped me break through in all areas of life, but allowed me to help others do the same. Through the powerful Energy Leadership Certification program, I discovered what true leadership is all about, and now I am my own boss who gets to go out into the world to help others develop into strong, passionate leaders. iPEC has equipped me with strong interpersonal skills and the most advanced coaching tools. I have access to constant support that allows me to constantly expand my business. People often ask me where I got my certifications from, and each and every time I am enthused to tell them all about iPEC. This course completely changed my life, my career, and my future. Kerri Myers, CPC, ELI-MP
The journey of becoming a certified coach has been a deep and very rewarding one. Personally, it allowed me to understand who I am and what I care about. It gave me the time to reflect on my life, to explore what was important to me, and what happiness meant to me. I have recently had a number of family members and friends pass away unexpectedly and at a young age, and I wondered what dreams were unfilled for them. I love the Latin term Carpe Diem, which means “seize the day.” That’s how I aim to live my life. It’s easy to get set in your ways, to coast along and to be afraid of change. However, there can be no better feeling than to live the life you want, to pursue the dreams you have, and to be happy in what you do every day.
On a professional front, I use my coaching skills to help individuals in the corporate world become better managers and leaders. Nobody comes to work to do a bad job. Most people seek to improve and be happy but get stuck in situations in a pressurized work environment. Providing them a confidential avenue for downloading their concerns, stresses, and issues is invaluable. They really appreciate what you have done for them, and how you have sincerely cared about them and worked with them. It’s a fantastic feeling for them and me. Helping others live a better life is valuable to me. I can’t think of many things better. Vijay Aluwalia, CPC
"The iPEC coach training program was a very valuable experience. I learned more than I expected. I thought I was already a coach, and after the training I realized I was just scratching the surface." Peggy Alvarado Manager, Applications Development, Princeton Financial Systems, Inc. iPEC Student.
When I decided to become a coach, I researched many programs but none of them provided the guidance and on-going support and tools to be a successful coach and have a successful coaching practice. From Mod I to Mod IV, this has been the best experience of my life and has truly inspired and motivated me to go full throttle with my coaching practice and to fully embrace my gifts talents and abilities, who I am, and what I bring to the world. I cannot tell you the consciousness and value that this program has created in my life and what it has allowed me to offer to others. Tracy D. Holloman
I am a big believer of Pilates because they teach and prove that in order for your body to get balanced and strong you need to strengthen the core of your stomach first. I chose iPEC because the philosophy and teaching is the same for the mind, and I already know this to be the Truth. I have been in therapy and although I love the woman I go to, I learned more about myself and my blocks in one weekend than I have in 5 years. It is really amazing and I am so thankful to have joined this certificate program through iPEC.
I have not been thrilled with my career for about 10 years. I have done well but I'm not proud of it nor do I feel energized by it. This is the first time I KNOW what I want to do and I KNOW I'll be good at it. At the same time, I know it is a process to get there and I am allowing myself the time to do so. Honestly, this weekend and this program is taking me on a wonderful, new and exciting path and I thank you so so so much!! Vanessa, iPEC Student
Corporate Woman, Entrepreneur, and Mother, what a great accomplishment! Or, so I thought. But, then I was introduced to iPEC at a conference I attended. I was so intrigued that I kept listening to the “Become a Coach” CD and thought to myself, this is “ME.” About a year later, I experienced burnout and knew it was time for me to make changes in my life. So the journey started and the iPEC program became a reality. It was the best thing to happen to me from a personal perspective, and was an amazing opportunity to start a new career path. Now, I can offer group coaching in my family-run business and use my life experiences to help others. And, I feel like I can do whatever I put my mind to because I am energized, positive, and able to view life with a new set of eyes. Dana Pollock, iPEC Student.
"iPEC training has no equal. It is conducted with the utmost commitment to excellence. It is the only choice for anyone who is truly interested in coaching as a profession." Carol Walker, MSW, Senior Social Worker, Monmouth Medical Center, iPEC Student.
The iPEC coach training program has been a life changing experience. If I were to have a choice between every self-help book, seminar, course or tape I own I would have to say this course has been the biggest influence for positive change, multiplied by 100, compared to anything I have tried personally and/or professionally. LuAnne Morrow, iPEC Student
Dear iPEC Leadership and Staff,
The purpose of this letter is to express my sincere thanks and deep gratitude for what the iPEC Coach Training Program has provided to me in terms of my personal and professional growth and development.
I got everything out of the program that I expected and more:
- I’ve learned vital skills that allow me to coach people in need of my services.
- I’ve proven myself as worthy of being a coach in order to provide my audience with guidance and advice.
- I’ve developed an extensive network of peer coaches, mentors, friends and business associates.
- I’ve kept myself inspired and motivated to achieve my visions and desires.
- The information and frameworks that I learned helped me build the content and core offerings in my business.
- I’ve received certification and credentials, which support my personal empowerment to coach, as well as to attract contributors, sponsors and clients.
I am different in the following ways:
- By keeping myself surrounded with positive, like minded individuals I have maintained momentum in my business.
- I have overcome my fears and doubts because I felt fears and challenges, but I kept moving forward. My innermost being is now synonymous with FEAR of NOTHING
- I am continuously inspired to be the human that I have always been inside, personally, professionally, and in the community.
Thank you iPEC for helping me to be as effective and fulfilled as I could possibly be across all aspects of life, and for empowering me to help others to do the same.
All the best,
Shari Ciapka, iPEC Student
