New Lunch and Learn webinar course begins September 14, 2010!


Personal Groundwork for Coaching™

An eight week personal exploration program delivered on Elluminate®, a state-of-the-art, interactive webinar system designed specifically for learning and collaboration.

Are you ready to create change for yourself? If your answer is “yes” then you are ready for an eight week personal exploration that will catalyze positive change in several key areas. Personal Groundwork for Coaching™ is a structured pathway towards examining and defining key areas for greater clarity and understanding of your life. As you work through the program you will begin to see how and if your goals align with what is most important to you and how you can attain them faster and with greater confidence. For many, new goals will be identified and created. The program will take you through three key areas:


Building resiliency

Breaking through obstacles

Align with your personal integrity

Each key area has several sub-concepts that are anecdotally explained in the workbook with corresponding worksheets and exercises to be done between classes each week which will help you apply them to your own situations. In addition, you will be able to pinpoint gaps that are present which could impede or completely block your progress towards attaining your goals and you will also discover new information for creating decision making filters and motivation points for you to focus on as you work towards your goals.

Participants of the Personal Groundwork for Coaching™ program will be asked to examine their beliefs and attitudes towards things like:


Adapting to change

The people in their personal and professional orbit

The roles they play in various settings


What they stand for personally and professionally


And much more…

Participants will also be asked to identify efficiency/deficiency points such as where they may use ineffective energy sources to get through their day, how they manage and use the energy they do have and how they can streamline the processes and systems they use in both their personal and professional lives.


Each participant will receive a Personal Groundwork for Coaching™ workbook prior to the class. Class size is limited to twenty people. In the event you miss a class, each class will be recorded (audio and visuals) on Elluminate® and can easily be accessed from your computer at your leisure. Only registered participants will be able to access the recordings. When you sign up for the class you will be given instructions to access and use Elluminate®. The program is simple and easy to use, even for computer novices.
