Source Point Training Celebrates 10 Years of Service!

It’s Source Point Training’s

10-Year Anniversary!

And so, it began 10 years ago this month. Lou Dozier and I, along with Kelly Mobeck, Ginny Carter and David Lysenko, launched Source Point Training. There was resistance from some saying launching in the midst of a recession was crazy and encouragement from many.

Lou and I believed our collective experience of bringing transformational trainings in the field of leadership, team building and professional coaching would get us through.

Brad Stauffer, our loyal and dedicated marketing wizard, helped to design the web site and all marketing materials to create a truly amazing brand that has sustained us for 10 years. Lou and my relationship were tested as friends learning to be partners. Ginny and Kelly, the grounded team and objective observers, coached us more than once.

Our Leadership training went from East to West from the Charlotte YMCA to First 5 for Kids in Santa Clara. The Source Point Coaches provided their coaching skills for all of our trainings. And, many new coaches took our Relationship Coach Certification training to advance their coaching skills.

Lou and I went to Mexico City with Diana Navratil and John Strosnider to train and certify professional coaches. In 2013, I began working with InVision Asia to train Leadership Coaching Skills and Certified Professional Performance Coaches in Taipei, Hong Kong, Shanghai and Beijing.

So many people along the way contributed and supported our trainings. So many fun memories and learning experiences. I won’t get into some of the late-night cab ride confessions in Tempe AZ. Many of you still out there are working with us and some like Kelly, has her own successful business now.

Thank you all for being a part of Source Point Training’s team and partner! We appreciate you all staying connected and spreading the word about the great personal and professional trainings we do. If you haven’t browsed through the pages of www.sourcepointtraining.com,  make it a point to do so and see some of our new opportunities for learning to have your personal and professional life work.

Take a few minutes for a look back at some of our SPT memories. 

Have an amazing 2020!

The Buzz About Coaching

The Buzz About Coaching

With all the buzz about coaching, more and more people are beginning to consider what it might mean for them to get a coach and also, to consider how to increase their performance and skills at work by learning how to coach others.

That is why each year we begin our Coaching Fundamental Curriculum with the student coach learning all about themselves first.

How do they see the world? How do they create judgments, likes/dislikes about others? What are their fundamental beliefs?

When we attempt to coach people with our own filters, we will not be able to really explore their perspectives. This is perhaps the hardest part of learning to be neutral as a coach. For new coaches, it is also one of the most powerful parts of learning to be a coach for others.

At Source Point Training, we refer to this as the “ground of being”. We teach our coaches that to be with others, it is important to understand your own filters so you can focus on the client and be fully present.

Another key principle in being a Professional Performance Coach is to understand you will be coaching ontologically – meaning, whatever area you are coaching the client on will also impact all areas of their life. For example, if I am coaching a client on managing time at work and prioritizing better, then he will begin to see how improvements in this area will increase how he manages time in all other areas of his life and the impact will be even greater.

Here are the top reasons why people seek coaching:

  • 48 % To develop higher potential at work or to be ready to transition to new levels in organizations
  • 26%    To have someone to work with as a trusted sounding board. Unlike a therapist   – to look towards the future and explore options and strategies for their life.
  • 12%    To address behavior issues that have them off track, i.e. to improve communication skills, improve relationships and more effective use of resources such as finances and time.
  • 14%    Misc. –   This could be health and wellness, completing goals that have yet to be accomplished, or addressing an immediate issue.

We are taking applications now for participants in this year’s Coaching Fundamentals. If you would like to schedule an interview with me, Barbara Fagan, or one of our faculty to explore how developing the skills of coaching can support you, please call my office at 707-431-1122 or email me at [email protected]

Empowerment from Source Point Training

Having just completed watching the Winter Olympics in Seoul, Korea, we can learn so many lessons of leadership, commitment and excellence.  This international event brings all types of leaders together to compete; but more importantly, to show others what is possible with 100% commitment to win.  Winning requires us to be willing to fail many times.  This is often what separates true leaders from those who are interested in only creating results and focused on their egos.  In order to accept loosing at times, we must be willing to face higher challenges and open our minds to something new in order to learn how to become successful.

“High aims form high characters, and great objectives bring out greater minds,” Tryon Edwards wrote this statement in the middle of the 19th Century when the age of the industrial revolution was just beginning. As people began to see the value of automation to improve performance and quality of labor and commerce, more people began to open their minds to new possibilities in the way they did business and lived their lives each day. We remember this time in history when there was excitement and a belief that anyone could become successful with hard work and ingenuity.

What our world needs now is for everyone to see themselves as a leader and to  be willing to take risks and to challenge themselves to think outside of their box. Instead of being a journalist and talking about what change is needed, we must be willing to create the change we want. These are powerful words and many leaders in history have shared this thinking in many different ways. However, without taking action and  staying committed to the change we want, it is too easy to step back and wait for someone else to take the lead.

Here are 8 simple things anyone can do each day to demonstrate their leadership value.

  1. Take time to read something new and share what you’ve learned with someone else.
  2. Identify one thing you would like to change and take action each day to create that change. This could be something as simple as cleaning out your closet and donating what you don’t need to others.
  3. Acknowledge everyone you see each day – this could be as simple as giving them a smile.
  4. Make a donation of ANY value at least once a month to a cause that is important to you.
  5. Practice listening deeply when people are talking to you. Let them know you HEAR them by responding to what they say.
  6. Listen to your body to stay healthy and exercise regularly and eat healthy foods.
  7. Maintain the environment around you by following sustainable practices such as recycling or using water bottles.
  8. If you experience conflict around you, step in to make things better and resolve it.

Being a leader is a mindset and it involves your identity. When we see ourselves as leaders, we recognize our contribution and show up authentically; not because we want approval but because we believe we can make a difference. Each person who participated at this year’s Olympic games saw themselves as a leader and committed years of practice to become excellent and to inspire all of us to see what is possible when we are willing to risk and reach for the gold.

Our best to you,

Barbara and everyone at Source Point Training

Every Leader Has a Dream

Every leader has a dream – to contribute to others’ success, to inspire and to believe in new possibilities that others cannot yet see.

This week, we celebrate Martin Luther King Jr., a man that changed the way we believed, the way we talked and the way we behaved in order to provide human rights for ALL individuals regardless of the color of their skin or where they came from.  We remember him and his dream.

Today, we are challenged more than ever to uphold the beliefs and values he talked about, lived and instilled in so many during a very dark time in our history.   I am fortunate to have lived my life during this time.  A time of great change in the way people saw each other and the stand they were willing to take for freedom and human rights.  As a young girl, I was raised in California – the San Francisco Bay Area.   I did not see or experience prejudice the way many others across our country did at that time.  It wasn’t until I moved to Alabama in the mid 60’s that I began to realize for the first time the prejudice that Black Americans faced each day.   I was there when Bobby Kennedy was shot and killed in Los Angeles.

These were times that no one would have thought could have become so hateful and violent.  Martin Luther King Jr. gave us hope for a new day as he shared with us the power of his dream.  Today we might be reminded of his words when he shared.

As we begin this New Year, let us commit to remember this man’s dream.  That in the face of our social media networks, tweets and fake news, we all really know what is required in order to create a world that works for everyone.  That is love, understanding, a willingness to work together towards a shared vision and listening to understand all points of views in order to determine the best path.

The advent of instant messages creates a smaller world but does not need to create smaller thinking.  The gift of age means that we have experiences of our life and lessons we have learned.  Youth gives us opportunities to stretch and to grow and to explore.  My dream for 2018 is that together – all men and women young and old – come together with the energy and excitement to work together, to invent a future that will sustain our world and all its people.

“If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk,

if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do

you have to keep moving forward.”

Martin Luther King Jr.

Our best to you,

Barbara and everyone at Source Point Training
