Coaching Program Vision, Philosophy and Goals

Inspired by Rudolf Steiner’s quote, we believe that people contain all of the intelligence, wisdom and inner power they need to achieve their goals. Honouring this belief as part of our fundamental philosophy, our coaches work with the whole nature of their clients to bring out their gifts, explore them and then conduct transformational conversations that lead to the clients’ greater success and wellbeing – body, mind and soul.

Coaching is the most powerful and effective approach to enhancing human development and performance. We teach participants to recognize that the client – the person they are coaching – already has the answers, and the coach’s role is to lead transformational conversations that help the client to unlock his or her potential leading to accelerated, long-lasting performance improvement.

We offer a unique and powerful leadership development program that embraces our motto that for a company to thrive, the people must thrive.

Coaching Academy three-fold mission:

  • We develop leaders to be personal and professional coaches.
  • We teach coaching as a leadership style.
  • We contribute to an organization’s capacity to build an ICF Prism standard coaching culture.
Practical, experiential, transformational…

Coaching is leadership in action! The Certified Leadership Coach program teaches managers and executives how to use this coach approach as a leadership style. Coaching is one of the most sought after leadership styles in today’s workforce, but few really know what it is or how to be a coach.

The  Corry Robertson Coaching Academy for Leaders brings a unique, robust and comprehensive approach to leadership development. The course relates some of the most overlooked secrets of organizational success. This knowledge gives your company the ability to build strong leaders who can manage an engaged workforce. Employee engagement is one of the key secrets to sustainable, long-term growth because it leads directly to happy, loyal clients.

Integrative Approach

Our approach integrates theory and methodology in a way that ensures participants will practice mindfulness, strategic thinking, emotional intelligence, communication skills, the art of influence, stress management, trust building and work-life balance as part of their coach training.

Never out of sight, or out of mind… All programs include private telephone coaching between onsite training sessions for each participant. Being coached through the trial-and- error aspects of the learning process is like the yeast in bread – the magical ingredient that helps participants to rise strong.

Participant engagement and accountability… Our process includes a robust assessment and measurement strategy to gauge participant engagement and accountability in order to track progress, measure results, and see the return on investment.

Leaders accustomed to conventional training programs will be surprised by how much opportunity they will have to engage, participate and contribute throughout the coaching program which, along with serious learning, results in lots of camaraderie, fun and laughter along the way – all of which builds team spirit and skills!
