So you've answered the call of your Soul to be a coach, one of the few who are courageous enough to speak their truth consistently, to do the work and show up as a beacon for others.
On the one hand it sounds so FABULOUS, you know, being a teacher for others who you know will greatly benefit from your skills, your wisdom, your passion.On the other hand, it's scary AF.
There's so many different courses and methodologies available at this time, it can feel overwhelming and frustrating, never knowing where to start or who to believe.
I get it.
I thank my lucky stars that my personal journey as a coach started more than a decade ago, long before online was the hottest thing in town. Why? Because I learned old-school. Without constantly comparing myself to thousands of others. Because when I started, we expected to work our arses off, to build a business the same as any other, and to never lose focus of why we started out in the first instance.
The standards were different back then. You were expected to complete a certification course of six months or more. You were expected to work privately with a coach on your own stuff. You were expected to work with a mentor and supervisor. None of these are minimum expectations anymore.
And even though I respect that there are fantastic coaches without formal training, I also believe in mastery and the fact that those who are great coaches without formal training do a shit ton of learning and their own personal coaching in the background.
I also believe in the power of role-playing with your peers and supervisors.
I believe in practice makes better.
I believe that working with a mentor is the fastest way to success.
I do believe in continued personal development.
These are all in place for myself to this day, and now I'm offering more than a decade of coaching experience and wisdom to selected apprentices.
I have no desire to create a sausage machine spewing out little minions and mini-me's. I desire to be instrumental in the journey of masterful coaches who will go out into the world and create their personal masterpieces! This takes high personal touch and intimacy.
Know this - this will NOT be a walk in the park.
The intake process will be rigorous.
I will expect you to show up as you've never shown up before.
I will expect you to work harder than you've ever worked before.
And success will be your only option.
If you know in your heart that coaching is not a job or a profession but your CALLING, and you know that you want to be mentored by one who will be coaching until the day she dies, then I invite you to complete this form as the first part of the application process.
Please note that if your application is selected we will be jumping on a call where you will coach me for an hour so I may ascertain your current level of proficiency and identify the gaps where I can add the most value should your application be successful.
If you're truly ready to commit, let's get started.
I will be working through your application and if short-listed, you will be invited to a role-playing session where you get to show me what you've learned to date.
With all my love and deep appreciation for you,Anel
