STAR Advanced Coach Training Programme
We see coaching as one of the most sophisticated skills a person could ever learn.
In the truest sense of the word, coaching is not just about learning the skills to coach and facilitate a person through a conversation. It is as much about learning to implement and embed into your life all the key aspects found in individuals with a heightened sense of consciousness, awareness, and self-mastery.
Higher consciousness conveys the consciousness of an individual who has reached a higher level of development and who has come to know reality as it is. It is usually associated with exceptional control over one’s mind and will, intellectual and moral enlightenment, and profound personal growth
Enlightenment in the context we hold it is nothing but the nature of one’s own self being fully realized. It is about living in a state of wholeness – a state in which consciousness and the unconscious work together in harmony. In a sense, enlightenment can also be a destructive process. It has nothing to do with becoming better or being happier. It is the crumbling away of untruth. It’s seeing through the façade of pretence. It’s the complete disillusionment of everything we imaged to be true
Self-mastery reflects a special level of proficiency. People with a high level of personal mastery can consistently realize the results that matter most deeply to them in their lives. They approach life as an artist would approach a work of art, by becoming committed to their own lifelong learning. They approach one’s life as a creative work, living life from a creative as opposed to a reactive viewpoint.
They embody a series of practices and principles such as purpose and vision, holding creative tension, structural conflict, commitment to truth and using the subconscious.
The art of coaching is about coming from a place of unconditional acceptance of what is, unconditional positive regard, and genuineness (Carl Rogers). In our world-view this is only really possible if you can come from that place with yourself.
To get here you must unlearn what you have been programmed to believe since birth which requires you to be able to see on a very real level the invisible instructions running your life and from here being able to create and live into commitments that deeply inspire you.
True transcendence is not about letting go of who you are, but about embracing all that you are. Once you awaken, you will have no interest in judging those who sleep (James Blanchard) To be happy, you must be your own sunshine (C.E. Jerningham)
In latest surveys on coaching at large, big organisations now recognize that to gain the ROI from coaching, the main requirement is for coaches to be able to work with the ingrained patterns of behaviour of their clients (Ridler Report 2013). Again, for this to be possible the coach must be able to work with their own ingrained patterns of behaviour.
- Empower coaches to embed all the core competencies of the ICF into their life.
- The intended outcome is to empower coaches to coach at an MCC level enabling them to apply for this credential (if they meet the full requirements required).
- The intended outcome is for every participant to have created profound shifts in their life, their relationships and with themselves, with the clarity and insight on how to consistently come from a place of unconditional acceptance of what is, unconditional positive regard and genuineness in all aspects of one’s life.
In going through a transformational coach training programme, as coaches you come so far in making the shifts in your life you wanted to.
If you leave the personal transformation part too long, things can easily go back to the way they were.
Through our research on what makes an exceptional coach, what makes you exceptional is not so much the doing – it’s your being. Your being is developed through the personal development in yourself.
In our world to the degree you have made sustainable shifts in your life and really shifted the core reoccurring patterns, then when clients are with you, you provide that as a possibility for them to make those same sustainable shifts as well. Your client can only get what you have gotten. As long as you are transforming, your clients can transform.
