Company Background

The purpose of the Coaching Training is to prepare you to work with clients on an individual basis, using the Shadow Work® tools.

At this training, you will learn the transformative model we use in the coaching container, which recognizes six stages of growth:

  1. We help the client determine what he/she really wants. In a three-day intensive coaching session, we might spend a few hours on this. In an hour-long phone call, this might take three minutes. Once the client has defined a goal, we can navigate by this star, to be sure the session remains on course. This also ensures that the client sets the agenda, and not us.

  2. We help the client list what might be at risk in getting these wants, and we determine which risks the client is willing to take at this time. This may clarify the client's wants still further, and it may happen that new wants appear. We will help identify the client's Risk Manager and establish a role for this vital part in the process. Honoring the client's Risk Manager will create a sense of safety that will enable the client to take more significant risks easily.

  3. We will help the client construct a "practice run", enabling the client to have the internal experience of the desired change without suffering undue external consequences. This most often takes the form of a standard Shadow Work® process, though we often get very creative at this point. For example, in a three-day coaching intensive, we may spend two days moving slowly through several Shadow Work® processes, each one building on the one before. Or we may modify a process to create a custom fit for this client.

  4. The client then has the experience of stepping into the desired identity, in an atmosphere free from judgment or consequences. This is an initiation into the feeling level of the new identity. The client will feel like a new person in some way. This is a joyful place. The client will feel bigger and more motivated to create changes in his/her life.

  5. The client will see a new way to organize a life around this new-found identity. From this fresh point of view, the client will see all other issues differently, with more self-acceptance.

  6. We will help the client identify strategies for a fresh approach, based on the client's experience of having achieved a new identity. We will support the client as these changes come about in his/her life over a period of time.
