Life Coach Training Certification

Are you a natural coach looking for professional certification?

Do you want to turn your natural skills and love for guiding others into a potential career as a Life Coach, Business Coach, Wellness Coach... or even your own unique coaching brand?

Or are you a leader, consultant or therapist looking to add professional ICF accredited coaching competencies to your skill sets?

Or maybe you're starting your journey to becoming a Certified Master Coach, but instead of committing to a full coaching program, you want to start with foundation skills, also to check if this career path is really for you.

Then this ICF accredited short foundation life coach training certification online course may just what you need.

There are tens of thousands of people looking for life coaches to guide them, and to be accountability partners.

Did you know that 49,500 people a month search the word "Life Coach" and 12,000 a month search for "Life Coach near me" on Google in the USA (according to Semrush)? What does this mean for you?

It means people are searching to hire life coaches (business coaches are also in demand).

This doesn't mean you have to call yourself a Life Coach, in fact, we recommend that you don't and that instead you create your own unique coaching niche and brand, but it does show you that this is the age of the Life Coach.

Picture this...

  • Being able to work from home or your office, as an online Life or Business Coach.
  • Helping clients to help themselves, to find their own best solutions and insights.
  • Guiding individuals and groups through empowering thinking processes, to visualize and achieve their success.
  • Using our 3 critical skill sets to build natural trust, creating a safe space for clients to do their inner work.
  • Coaching clients to shift from "I don't know" to AHA solutions and breakthrough ideas.
  • Going to sleep at night happy because you are making a difference and making a living.

Would you like to have:

  • An ILS Coach 101 Certificate with 11 ICF certification hours, both ACSTH (Approved Coach Specific Training Hours) and CCE (Continued Coach Education Hours) - highly sought after and internationally recognized?
  • Coaching worksheets and scripts that are ready to use?
  • Credits towards an ILS Master Coach ACTP Certification? This short course counts as credits.
  • 4 coaching processes to use with your clients?

We recommend that you only consider ICF accredited Life Coach Training Certification.

But ICF competencies are not always enough.

According to our research, traditional ICF Life Coaches & Business Coach foundation courses often hold back, and although ICF ACSTH foundation courses are among the best in the world, we suggest that you consider the following:

Traditional ICF ONLY Foundation Coaching Courses.

  1. HOLDING BACK - These courses often hold back, giving you minimal skills, so that you cannot really start coaching.
  2. SCRIPTS AND STRUCTURE - Either offer you no structure OR give you a structure that is very limiting, risking making you a 1 dimensional coach.
  3. PURE NO ADVICE COACHING - ICF courses tend to support only PURE coaching, which is a shock to many students because pure coaching (coaching as defined by the ICF) means you cannot offer ANY advice. Don't get me wrong, pure coaching is very empowering and we do support this approach, but we know that you might have expertise and want to offer guidance to your clients.

The InnerLifeSkills Foundation Life Coach Skills Approach...

  1. CERTIFICATION SKILLS FROM DAY 1 - From class 1, we teach you the exact 3 Skills and 3 Step Method that you would need to certify as an ILS Master Coach and even to apply to the ICF for coaching credentialing. Yes, we offer you much more content on our full Master Coach ACTP course, but we pack the 101 with everything you need to start coaching immediately.
  2. FLEXIBLE SCRIPTS + STRUCTURES - We give you coaching scripts and worksheets to fast track your learning, and we encourage you to use these like bicycle training wheels, to eventually go beyond them. Also our structure is flexible enough to help you to offer intuitive creative coaching, which is required for MCC master coaching.
  3. PURE + BLENDED COACHING - Our philosophy is that it's best to learn PURE NO ADVICE GIVING coaching, so that you can learn how to change lives without giving advice, but that you should also be free to combine mentoring and advice giving if you have expertise as BLENDED COACHING. Our courses support PURE and BLENDED coaching. This is perhaps why we get top ratings for our courses from our consultants, psychologists, mentors, financial planners and service professional clients.
