The continued growth of professional coaching has opened new career opportunities around the world. According to the 2014 ICF Global Consumer Awareness Survey, 88% of those who have participated in a coaching relationship reported that it was important/very important that their coach hold a certification/credential. And 74% of those who were familiar with coaching but who had not yet participated in a coaching relationship also reported that it was important/very important that a coach hold a certification/credential.
Last week, in Partnership with InVision Asia, Chris Lam, President of Invision Asia, and Source Point Training, took the next step in expanding the newly established Asia Coaching & Mentoring Academy with the launch of Mastery Coach Certification in Hong Kong. All of the participants, having completed and received their certificate for Advanced Coach Certification, were excited and eager to jump into the Mastery Coach Certification curriculum! InVision’s motto is “We Build Great Company by Building Great People”. Next month, a group in Taipei will begin their Mastery Coach Certification as well!
In addition to the rise in professional coaches, organizations are now seeing the value of having a coaching resource available to their employees. Source Point Training’s Coaching Skills and Tools program provides corporations with the leadership tools for today’s employees. By learning to communicate in a way that encourages people to be self-directed and responsible for generating results, they increase productivity and employee retention.
Source Point Training has had the privilege of working with and supporting an amazing organization based in Memphis, TN – Youth Villages – who shares this philosphy. This is an organization dedicated to helping emotionally and behaviorally troubled children and their families live successfully. They have taken the lead in providing coaching skills and tools as part of their leadership training and development. They believe that creating a “coaching” culture, in a way that mentors and “develops up” their personnel will support their fast growing, nation-wide organization.
Source Point Training looks forward to supporting organizations worldwide with the desire to raise the level of leadership through coaching. We also continue to offer our Fundamentals and Mastery of Performance Coach Training each year. This ICF approved coach certification training is available for people who:– Want to pursue a full-time career as an independent coach – Want to add the skills of coaching to their current profession as part of their professional/leadership development – Are part of an organization wanting to offer internal coaching to their employees – Want a supplemental P/T career now and plan to transition to F/T down the road – Are recently retired and see they have so much to contribute to other still!
