1. What have you gained from the training with IWSCI?
I have grown personally and have discovered ways to see others with a new perspective. I have gained knowledge and understanding about how to interact with people in a respectful and empathetic way.
2. Why did you choose our training program?
I chose this program because it offered me to be a balanced, whole approach to learning. I also chose it because I found the interpersonal wellness coach/trainer to be personal and the courese were offered in a classroom setting.
3. How has this program changed your life?
This program has changed my life. I have slowly transformed my way of thinking, the way I lead my life and the way I lead in my family. I interact with others differently. I have more positive, understanding and meaningful interactions. I ask rather than tell, and I see the difference in the way people respond rather than react.
4. What do you now feel able to do with your coach training?
I now feel that I could assist someone in whatever way they needed - whether it be achieving their life goals and becoming who they want to be or finding a solution to an immediate concern or issue. I no longer want to tell someone what I think, but I so want them to discover the answers for themselves!! I feel I could help someone see that no matter where they are or what they are doing they can be happy and at peace with themselves and with life.
5. Would you recommend this program to others and why?
I have will continue to recommended this program to others. Regardless of whether or not someone is coming for a work realted issues, job requirement to better their skills or simply as a personal interest, what you learn will change your life!
Shauna Attardo, student, 2012
I had spent a number of months looking into the many options for life coach training and it appeared that I would either have to do my training miles away from home or in isolation at my computer. Neither one of those options was appealing. I really wanted to receive training close to home and in a group setting where I could learn through interaction with others and that is exactly what I experienced at the Interpersonal Wellness System Coaching Institute (IWSCI). The training period enabled me to gain a greater confidence in myself as a person and then a new found confidence in my coaching abilities. The training and the IWQ model provide me with the structure and the tools that I need to be a successful professional life coach. My search for training began in isolation but through IWSCI, I found a program that not only offered quality training but it allows me to be part of a supportive coaching network.
