Holistic Coaching is a partnership where coaches support and encourage their clients to come to their own understanding about their lives. The International Coach Federation defines coaching as partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential. Its philosophy views the entire person as an integrated whole, understanding that all facets of a person's life are inextricably linked. In addition to commonly discussed elements of mind/body/spirit, other important life factors are also taken into consideration including health, relationships, finance and work/career.
Training program content includes: the art of active listening, boundaries and body language, coaching vs. counseling, holistic paradigms, self-discovery, creating sacred spaces, taking the client's lead, asking vs. telling, goals & accountability, authenticity & presence, setting up a private practice, and self-marketing.
Radiant Coaches Academy (a division of Radiant Health Institute) has created a unique offering for those interested in helping others to lead lives of true authenticity and passion. Unlike many distance-learning coach training programs where the majority (if not all) of the training is done via teleclass or webinar, this Holistic Coach training & certification program is a 100% face-to-face classroom experience. This class-as-community approach deeply enhances the learning process and promotes a warm, interpersonal bonding experience for all program participants.
Radiant Coaches Academy's Holistic Coach training program is certified as 65 hours of Approved Coach Specific Training Hours by the International Coach Federation. The Approved Coach Specific Training Hours (ACSTH) designation is awarded to programs that meet professional standards for coach training programs established by the International Coach Federation.
This training is perfect for the empathetic person with a desire to make a true difference in the lives of others. If, in the past, you have continuously found yourself in the role of confidant, encourager or sounding board, you may be a natural as a holistic coach! In addition to being an "up and coming" career field, holistic coach training provides a true option for entrepreneurship via a wonderful pathway of personal growth for BOTH yourself and your clients. Intended participants include those who care about others, those with a humanitarian spirit and those who are interested in supporting others in finding their way through life's challenges and celebrations.
The training is conducted either online (self-paced with twice-weekly Zoom classes on Mondays and Thursdays from 7-9pm cst) or over an 10-day period in person allowing students to complete their education with minimal time away from family, etc. Class days run from 9:00am to 5:00pm with 65 total hours of classroom instruction included in the program. International trainings are typically a 12-day destination experience.
Real-time coaching demonstrations are of utmost educational value to our trainees as a part of this comprehensive curriculum. Our highly experienced, insightful and humorous facilitators offer students holistic coaching "on the fly" and coach these "clients" in front the the entire group to show the coaching process up close and personal. This is a nuts-and-bolts process, clearly showcasing the power, simplicity and philosophy of coaching. This routinely gives on-looking trainees major "A-Ha!" moments and is a foundation of the training program. Students are privileged to "see the work" as it happens during genuine, emotional and sometimes gritty coaching sessions - always with questions and follow-up discussion at the end. Students also have the option of coaching each other with critiques following from class facilitators and fellow students.
Program content includes: the art of active listening, boundaries & body language, coaching vs. counseling, holistic paradigms, self-discovery, creating sacred spaces, taking the client's lead, asking vs. telling, goals & accountability, authenticity & presence, setting up a private practice, and self-marketing. Extensive support is provided to trainees long-term after certification classes including continuing education, monthly Coaching Calls and free design & hosting of your own coaching website!
Radiant Coaches Academy's master trainers include founder, Dez Stephens. As a long-time marketing coach, Dez Stephens spends a significant amount of focus helping students to understand the all-important issues of business building and private practice development.
If certification requirements are met (see below), students can look forward to becoming a Certified Holistic Coach through Radiant Coaches Academy. The certification process allows experts to enhance what they are already doing to further support their clients in specialty areas. Some trainees choose to identify themselves in areas of specialization such as wellness coaching, relationship coaching, grief coaching, business coaching, etc.
IMPORTANT NOTE: We need to be frankly open and honest here for the benefit of potential career changers. "Success" in business building can vary significantly depending on a w-i-d-e range of variables. Although the entrepreneurial life can be filled with joy and great satisfaction while operating within a flexible schedule on your own terms, becoming an entrepreneur requires patience, persistence, focus, risk taking and a lot of courage!
