Personal Growth Fundamentals

gold seal label satisfaction guaranteed

Getting the basics right in our lives is a lot like building strong foundations for a house.

When we have strong foundations for a house, the house we build becomes a home.

When we have strong foundations for our lives, the life we create becomes a legacy.

In this program, we take you step-by-step though the process of building strong foundations on which to create your kind of life – a life that is authentically YOU, a life that brings happiness, not only to you, but to those around you. And a life that you never want to change.

This personal development program is designed to assist you in becoming the best possible version of YOU. It’s like building a home in which you can thrive.

The program is structured I the following way: each module starts off with a short introductory video. Once you have watched that, you will be guided through the module with a series of questions that must be answered. This is all done online, so that your progress through the program can be referred to at any stage. Once you have completed a module, you can print the whole module, including your answers.

There are 9 modules in total, starting with discovering more about yourself, then reviving your ability to dream and imagine, unearthing your guiding values (this helps you to live an authentic life) and creating a vision for your perfect life. Next you assess where you are now and work out where you want to be. To wrap it all up, you’ll create a plan of action and decide how to keep on track – which includes taming that self-sabotaging behavior! After a self-assessment you will receive a certificate of completion.

This program was created by experienced coaches Kirsten Long and Michael Coyle. The product was developed in 2015 and tested with a pilot group – made up of people from various walks of life – professionals, entrepreneurs and Motivational Speakers. During 2016 and 2017, clubs were created – and in these clubs, people worked through the programs – some of them made the most astounding changes. In order to give more people the opportunity of doing this work, we are now creating an online portal including Personal Growth Fundamentals and many other programs.

You will also get access to a closed Facebook group. Here, people who are working through Personal Growth Fundamentals, interact with each other – they share their experiences of working through the program and about what they learnt about themselves. They ask questions and they support each other. This Coaching Culture Community forms an integral part of the program. At the end of every module, you will be encouraged to interact with this closed group.

An unexpected benefit was learning to really listen and to see another perspective and options from someone else’s point of view. It made me think deeper about my life-about the messages that I want to leave behind. It made me to be more clear on my values the things I stand for in life. What also helped a lot was verbalizing it, and hearing myself speak those messages out loud. It made it much more real for me. Sometimes you need to speak aloud what you want in life-and you will easily allow the plans to fall into place. The coaching club was a safe environment where I was challenged to grow, inspired and educated in ways on reaching my goals. I have not only benefitted personally in the course but also professionally

Basic Coaching Skills

Imagine having a conversation with somebody. When you’re finished, that somebody thinks you are amazing. Why do they feel this way? Because of how you made them feel: They feel heard, they feel listened to, and they feel understood.

What we want most in this world is to feel understood. You can do this for others.

Imagine the powerful effect on your relationships if the people around you, from work colleagues, to employees, to family and friends, feel understood by you.

This is what Basic Coaching Skills is all about. You will learn some basic communication skills that enable you to build strong relationships.

The ability to build strong relationships is the secret to greater success in life. Think about it – your life is, in effect, your relationships.

The first skill you will learn is how to listen properly. This skill is all but lost in our modern world. You will discover that there are different ways to listen. You will practice and observe yourself in different listening situations.

If you are only going to learn one skill, choose listening.

Next you will discover how to deepen understanding through asking questions – the right questions. Powerful questions. Not only will you deepen your own understanding of the other person, asking the right questions helps them to deepen their own understanding about themselves. This is where the magic happens!

You are already able to connect with certain people, probably naturally and unconsciously. We call this being in rapport with another. Now you will learn to do this with awareness and choice. The ability to do this brings the other person into a position comfortable enough for them to share with you.

Now you will broaden your skills to “listen” to more than the words. This gives you deeper insight into the inner world of the other person. The important skill here is learning HOW to deal with the information you are getting in an ethical and effective way.

Lastly, you will learn a basic Coaching Model for setting goals and assisting people who need some guidance. This is useful if you are in a position where you work with people, or even as a parent to motivate and guide your kids.

Getting these skills entrenched as part of your communication strengths empowers you to motivate and inspire others, to be a leader in your own right. In the process of learning how to communicate with others you will learn valuable lessons about yourself and this will aid you in your personal and professional development.

The program is created in such a way that you learn some content, then go and practice. It’s the practice and self-reflection and bringing the skills together in a purposeful way that enhances your ability to deepen your relationships.

There is a closed Facebook group for this course as well. Here you can ask questions, share insights, and talk about your experiences as you learn each skill. This community is your ‘go to’ place for further growing your skills.
