Certified Coach". More importantly, the program holds the high level of focus and
support needed for the new coach to gain the competence, confidence and structure
to start coaching. Many graduates of the Life Coach Program (LCP) begin their coaching practice while
many others integrate the coaching skill-set and coaching mind-set learned back into their current
profession and career.

Each Life Coach Program (LCP) is open to a maximum of 18 participants. This means you are in a small
and intimate group where in-depth sharing and learning can take place. Each participant is as dedicated to
their personal development and spiritual path as you are to yours. It is an environment where all spiritual
traditions are honored and no one tradition is held as the only way to be.

How to Get Paying Clients
This is one of the most essential aspects of starting a coaching practice. Unique training techniques are initiated in the first week that ease you into a remarkably genuine offering of your services. Integration continues during the weekly webinar sessions strengthening the number one way of enrolling clients and expanding the numerous paths you may choose to a successful practice.
The cornerstone of Coach For Life’s unique coaching skills and processes is the FULFILLMENT COACHING MODEL™ that operates on the principle that we are always both seeking and being drawn to greater levels of fulfillment. One of the concepts offered within the FULFILLMENT COACHING MODEL™ is that we are all being called to our highest level of fulfillment through an innate knowingness of our own truth and gifts that we are here to share. This concept is the foundation that attracts the clients that are perfectly suited for you and your successful coaching practice.
Have Your Own Coach
Having your own personal peer-coach supports new coaches to create a successful coaching practice. So Coach For Life provides you with your own peer-coach.
During the five-day seminar you receive over a month's worth of one-on-one coaching. And during the integration phase, Part II, of your training you have your own personal peer-coach to support you each week towards your own personalized creation of your coaching practice.
Having your own coach is an essential aspect of being able to present yourself to the world as a coach. The number-one way to enroll people into being coached is to be able to share the passion of your own personal insights and forward movement as facilitated by your coach. Without your personal experience, conviction and passion for what you have gained from having a professionally trained coach, there is very limited energy to share the benefits of hiring a coach.
The Life Coach Program (LCP) gives you the opportunity to get your own personal experience of being coached for two whole months. And there is no additional cost to you for this coaching. It is included in the price of the LCP Program.
Clients to Coach
Finding clients can be one of the most challenging aspects of becoming a coach. So the two-month Life Coach Program is structured to provide a peer-client for you to coach during the first two months.
This can make a huge difference in new coaches' ability and willingness to put them self out to the world to serve as a coach. You see firsthand how much value there is to be received as a client from a coaching relationship and you get to experience the value YOUR coaching can deliver to someone else.
It is so important for a new coach to experience that they can provide that type of value to another by serving as their coach. You will be able to hear from your client what they are gaining from having you as their coach. Based on this feedback and fired up with that confidence, you can tell other people interested in hiring you as their coach what value they could find in working with you.
Coach For Life provides you with tremendous support in honing your coaching skills as well as developing your confidence to market yourself as a professional coach.
The Coach For Life Graduate Community
You start building your coaching community from day one of the five-day seminar. After bonding and getting to know each other for the first five days, you continue on with this same group for the rest of the LCP program. There is a maximum of 18 participants, so you get an opportunity to really know each other. Lifelong relationships have begun within this Program.
Free CFL Grad On-line Community - Upon completing the five-day training you will be invited to join Coach For Life's on-line community.

Being a 'Spiritual Coach' creates unlimited potential. The Fulfillment Coaching Model™ is the ideal coaching model for the individual who desires to combine their coaching services and their spiritual tradition. Being a Spiritual Coach totally expands the areas and types of people you can coach.
The spiritually-based Fulfillment Coaching Model™ is currently being used by our graduates and certified coaches around the world and in every type of coaching being offered – life coaching, executive coaching – career coaching – transition coaching – internal coaching – external coaching, etc.
In Coach For Life's training we use a spiritual coaching model. We know that we can touch the heart and soul of anyone, whether they consciously know themselves as spiritual beings or not. We believe everyone is a spiritual being having a human experience. Even for those who see themselves as just a human or as human beings having an occasional Spiritual experience, we can, and do, touch their soul without ever having to use the word "Spirit" or "God," etc. All the coaching skills, processes and tools offered in the Coach For Life courses are 100% applicable to whoever you coach.
As a Spiritual coach, our power lies in our connection with Spirit. It's not required that the client be conscious of any Spiritual connection. As Spiritual coaches we can "access" the Spirit we know to be within everyone regardless of an individual's belief or level of consciousness around being Spiritual. And we do this without imposing our beliefs onto the client, or employee being coached.
There is a transcendent magic, (some call it a miracle), that occurs when Spirit is accessed and brought into the numerous decisions that make up the fabric of our lives. There are numerous methods of "accessing" Spirit that are taught and experienced in all of Coach For Life's coach training & certification programs. Accessing Spirit aligns us with our true nature. This in turn brings peace, joy, ease, and fulfillment into every moment of our lives.
