What is Coaching?

The International Coach Federation defines coaching as partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential.

Coaching is the art of interacting with a person creatively in a way that energizes them to achieve extraordinary results in their desired objective. Professionally trained in core coaching competencies and coaching ethics, coaches partner with clients to identify important goals and priorities, strategize about how to reach them, and overcome obstacles that crop up along the way.

A Lifeforming Coach creates a relational atmosphere through coaching competencies and values for clients to discover their unique design, desires, dreams and destiny, both personally and professionally.

What makes us different?

Lifeforming Leadership Coaching is a leadership coach training organization for relationally focused leaders looking for sustainable change in their spheres of influence. If you are searching for a systematic, effective coaching methodology to develop leaders with character and competence, then Lifeforming Leadership Coach training is the answer.

We train and equip coaches who desire to coach individuals to be all they can be, live their dreams, improve their performance, increase their focus and ultimately finish well in their lives, careers, organizations and businesses.

We uniquely integrate several methods of training (one-on-one with a trainer, peer relationships, tele-classes, workshops, feedback, debriefing and working with clients) to give you the most effective learning experience for your investment. We get results because we have a holistic approach to training, believing that the best transformational coaching comes from transformed coaches. You will be ruined for the ordinary and you will never be the same!

Our curriculum has been field tested since the turn of the century, 2000, and is regularly edited. We have trained over two thousands of coaches worldwide. The curriculum has met academic standards to be offered for optional credit in various schools and universities. It is translated into multiple languages with new ones added as needed. In addition to our domestic training program our curriculum is being used in over fifteen countries internationally.

All Coach Training Programs comply with and train you in the International Coach Federation (ICF) 11 Core Competencies and Coaching Ethics.

Lifeforming training will not only prepare you in these internationally accepted coaching skills, but also through 10 Core Coaching Values, the Heart of a Lifeforming Christian Coach.
