Why to Consider Coaching

According to a recent study from Bersin and Deloitte, it was determined that organizations with a cultural support for coaching had a 75% higher rating for management results, 39% stronger employee results, and 13% stronger business results than those with no support for coaching.

In a separate evaluation, a national university was facing economic challenges and felt they clearly needed to make substantial effective changes. They decided to invest in coaching and leadership development for its mid-level managers.

The university discovered in evaluating the coaching results, the managers who participated in coaching and leadership development had higher productivity and improved departmental outcomes. Furthermore, more than 30% of the coached managers advanced to more senior positions in the organization.

In our webinar Thursday, October 3rd at 6:00 pm (PDT), you’ll find out more about how coaches impact people’s lives.

Around since the 1990s, executive coaching previously had been used as a remedy to correct employees’ difficult behaviors and peer relationships or perceived lack of competencies.  Today organizations offer coaching as a perk  to develop better employee-management relationships and improve the overall morale of employees.They see this as a solid platform to support executive skill building, performance, and personal leadership agendas.

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]

Personal Transformational Trilogy

PERSONAL TRANSFORMATION TRILOGY

Personal growth and change never occurs without real world experiences. Our life’s lessons teach us what to do, what not to do and how to make choices. Unfortunately, many of life’s lessons also teach us how to play it safe or use strategies designed to keep us from getting hurt or feeling like a failure.

 

Over time, we fail to recognize how our life’s experiences can limit us. We lose the natural desire to explore new horizons or diverse relationships and to take risk to learn something new. Our worldview becomes narrow and closes us off to new possibilities and we can become “fixed” in how we see things, how we react and how we communicate.

 

Source Point Training is excited to announce the collaboration with Martha Borst of Martha Borst Consulting. Barbara Fagan and Martha have been friends and colleagues for almost 10 years and have found this unique opportunity to collaborate; bringing their unique skills and experiences in the world of consulting and coaching together to form the Transformational Trilogy.

 

What began six years ago in the bucolic community of Healdsburg, California nestled between the ocean and the hills of wine country, is growing beyond Sonoma County. The word is spreading and many people are coming to experience personal growth and change in this beautiful part of the world.

TRANSFORMATIONAL TRILOGY

BASIC ADVANCED LEADERSHIP
Insight ––> Breakthrough ––> Application
Discovery ––> Permanent Change ––> Internalization fulfillment

THE BASIC SELF MASTERY COURSE

The Basic Self Mastery Course is a caring, hardworking and inspiring educational seminar designed to generate insights and discoveries into the areas of your life that matter most to you, both personally and professionally. As we encounter the constant demands of our busy lives and the fast pace of the rapidly changing environment around us, we can easily lose balance, become overwhelmed, confused and misdirected. Often, you may find yourself feeling stressed while trying to put out fires or perhaps you’re wondering where intimacy went in your relationships. Sometimes you may feel like you’re swimming upstream and working hard, but not getting very far.

At times like these, it is critical to have a clear understanding of who you are, why you’re here, what you want, where you’re going, how you’re going to get there and how you can individually carve out the kind of future you desire.

You will learn skills, receive tools and examine the beliefs and values that influence your decision-making. By becoming aware of your power to influence and direct your current experience as well as your future, you will be able to understand how to master the navigation of your life.

The greater understanding you have of yourself and of Life’s Laws, the more successful you can be in making the right choices for yourself and the people around you and the better able you will be to become a productive, contributing member of your community.

Martha Borst will be by your side, guiding you on how to achieve your wants, needs, dreams and goals. You can count on her communication to be direct and clear. You can never offend her because this is your ride and she is only here to be of service to the quality and effectiveness of your ride. Space is limited to 16 people only and the course is only given six times a year.

I am not a self-help person, so when I was offered to participate in the Basic Self Mastery Program, I was hesitant. However, I cannot describe adequately how profound and influential those three days were for me. I came away with a purpose and a deeper understanding of my world. Martha is a force of nature. I sincerely thank her for offering me this effective and heart-warming method of connecting to self, to community and to humanity.”

THE ADVANCED SELF MASTERY COURSE

Coached by both Barbara Fagan and Martha Borst, The Advanced Self Mastery Course is open to anyone who has completed the Basic Course. It’s a phenomenal, once-in-a-lifetime experience designed for those who are committed to permanent change in their lives. This is the course where you break through all the barriers standing in the way of your own personal power.

Through this course, you will see a multitude of new ways to live your life, which will bring you greater joy, inner peace, freedom, clarity and fulfillment. Once you see what’s possible, you will never want to go back.

The Advanced Course will expand and deepen your awareness and personal power in ways you have not yet imagined possible. You’ll stretch your mind, expand your heart and enrich your spirit.

Thank you Martha and Barbara for giving me this wonderful gift. I am enjoying the journey of my life more than I could have thought possible. Loving deeper, finding myself in the moment more and connecting with my kids in a wonderful new way.”

LEADERSHIP SOURCE TRAINING

Leadership Source is open to Advanced Course graduates and is directed and supervised by Barbara Fagan. By taking the principles and Life Laws of the Basic and Advanced out into the world with you and practicing ways applying them each day, you will begin to see the changes you want in your life come into reality.

This 10-week Leadership Coaching program is designed to support and guide you to put into practice everything you learned in the Basic and Advance courses. You will have your own workbook, share ways to apply principles of effective communication, make choices with real accountability, and be guided by your personal purpose, vision and ways to collaborate and align with others to create amazing results at home and at work.

Your personal coach will work with you each week consistently translating your new awareness context into real, everyday practical and powerful results. This training consists of two training weekends and 10 weeks of 1:1 coaching.

Challenging, exciting, and fun, the Leadership Source Training supports you to achieve your most important goals while living a life of rich abundance.

“Leadership was the perfect opportunity to utilize the tools I learned in the Self Mastery courses and working closely with a personal coach in setting up a goal plan, it helped me in ways I cannot begin to describe. My life is so much less convoluted now that I have a clear plan on where I want to be and what I want to do in my life. It was absolutely invaluable to me!  All three courses were hands-down the BEST investment of time and money I’ve ever gifted myself. Thank you!!”

Coaching Fundamentals Coming This Fall!

Coaching Fundamentals and Mastery Coming to Northern California This Fall!

As many of you know, we have delivered our Coaching Fundamentals and Mastery Level certification coach training in Tempe for eight years.

This October, we WILL begin our 15th year of delivering this curriculum, which provides 250 hours of coach training, scheduled over nine months, with five classroom modules. We are proud this curriculum is recognized by International Coach Federation (ICF) with the ACTH rating and by the Association of Coaching, based in London, as one of the top tier 4-star rating of coaching schools around the world. In the last 15 years, Barbara Fagan, Master Coach, has trained over 1,000 International Certified Professional Performance Coaches in the U.S., Mexico, Hong Kong, China, and Taipei.

More and more organizations around the world are training and developing internal professional coaches to support their employees. It’s a perk for internal employees to have a coaching resource to assist them in creating higher and higher professional results and develop their career path.

According to recent ICF research, 80% of organizations using external coaches today plan to increase their use of coaching due to the benefits of coaching applied within an organization. The following charts from a recent ICF survey show just a few of the benefits within an organization.

 

In talking with many people interested in our certified coach training, we heard that due to the cost of travel, time off work and retaining a steady job, it posed challenges in making the commitment to this course of study. There is a large group of people in the Bay Area interested in Source Point Training Coaching Fundamentals and Mastery Level Certification.

As coaches, we value the presupposition of requisite variety, therefore, we are announcing the start of our Coaching Fundamentals and Mastery in North Bay Area starting in October. This will be a small class with no more than 15 participants and will be set up in a retreat like setting so participants can enjoy the quiet and beauty of the north bay yet, still be close for commuting purposes.

That means it is not too late to jump into our internationally recognized coaching program. In nine months, you will fulfill all the educational requirements to become a recognized international coach and graduate with your accreditation from both the Association of Coaching and the International Coach Federation.

What better way to step into the professional arena than with Master Coaches with years of experience who are committed to creating the next generation of coaches for the 21st century?

Sourcepoint Leadership Team takes hold of the reins for Russian River Beautification

Pictured: Jarrod Holmes, Kyle Evans, Kat Baird, and Jennifer Lucas, are part of the 20-person Sourcepoint Leadership team who spent 10 weeks planning the project.

Sourcepoint Leadership Team takes hold of the reins for Russian River Beautification

Lots of fun along with gratifying work will be happening Sunday, June 23, 2019 from 10 a.m to noon, when a Healdsburg Sourcepoint Leadership team hosts a Russian River clean-up, followed by a celebratory party for all volunteers as part of their community service project.

“I felt a real need to do something about the river,” said Healdsburg local Eric Wagner, the brain-child behind the project and part of the 20-person Leadership team heading the project. Having grown up on the river, the project is particularly close to his heart. “Through this whole process, it finally feels like (our leadership team) is hitting a stride – getting it going with everybody in the community on board,” said Wagner of the project.

Having Don McEnhill, Executive Director for Russian Riverkeeper as a client in his barbershop made a nice connection for Wagner. “He’s been a client for 17 years…he was absolutely stoked” when Wagner approached him with his idea. The Russian River Beautification project, in partnership with Russian Riverkeeper and Clean River Alliance, will be working to remove trash from the Watershed before it hits the river, causes pollution and is ultimately, carried out to the ocean.

The Sourcepoint team is also selling tickets for prizes in a raffle to raise necessary funds for trash disposal costs, which totaled $20,000 in 2018. The public is invited to volunteer in the clean-up, which will offer support, camaraderie and all the tools needed to be an empowered steward of the river and its clean-up.

At the end of clean-up, a barbecue celebration for all volunteers will take place, where raffle winners will be announced. Ticket holders need not be present to win. For more information on participating in the clean-up and purchasing tickets for the raffle, visit:

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
