Diploma Life Coaching

By considering a Diploma in Life coaching – you are looking at the industry recognised qualification for people wanting to be practitioner coaches.
We understand that selecting the correct programme is a difficult decision. There are a large and varied amount of choices  on the market and a slightly confusing  array of providers and accrediting bodies.

So it is important that the standards for both coach practitioners and training course providers are of a high ethical standard which should give greater peace of mind to those people looking to hire a coach or invest in their own coach training.

We are confident that our PSG Diploma in Life coaching contain all the key elements which in future will be seen as industry-wide best practice and satisfy the aspirations of the prospective coach.
The course covers the theoretical aspects of coach education and recognises that this is a vital aspect of learning to coach effectively but theory of itself does not produce a first class coach.

Life Coaching is a practical activity and any coach training worth its salt must be grounded in sound professional practice. This is why PSG devote so much attention to the practice/feedback model of coach development.
At each workshop you work in trios rotating around the roles of coach, coachee and observer. The feedback and learning from these sessions is often the most significant part of the programme for many where the ‘coalface’ type of approach includes :

  • Work-based Assignments  and Evidence Requirements
  • Breadth and depth of theoretical input as it relates to practical work
  • Intensive coach practise sessions with high quality feedback from course tutors
  • Requirement to build up supervised hours of coaching practise
  • Group supervision at workshops
  • Demonstration sessions from course tutors

So undoubtedly the Diploma in Life Coaching extensively covers the ‘on- the- job’ type experience that a practitioner is likely to meet on a day to day business whether in the area of private coaching but also in the internal business coaching environment.
All of the specialist subjects in the Diploma are mapped to professional coaching occupational standards – standards which have been developed in consultation with employers – thereby ensuring the PSG Diploma qualification is best placed to satisfy both the requirements of the business world as well as the private  practitioner.

Life Coach course:

Life coach course ?
What does a life coach course entail and what will I learn from it ?
Will it suit me and am I ready ?
By simply asking yourself those awkward questions an individual is taking a big step forward to making changes in their life.
A cautious personality may very well pause, and may need to address further considerations  such as

Who or what is really stopping me ?

If I am going to wait again –when will be exactly the right time ?

Who do I really know that I can trust, to talk about what I want to achieve ?

What could I do today to help me in my nagging desire to achieve more ?

Will the Life coach course  provide just the impetus I may need ?

What would I really like to achieve outside of work and who can help ?
But once decided — taking a Life coach course of learning will very quickly provide clients with feedback, new insights, and understanding from an outside vantage point.

The profession of coaching is sometimes mistakenly compared to counselling or even therapy. There are a few common elements on the fringes maybe but the difference is that coaching is an on-going equal partnership with the client built on going forward – and taking action. Such as the client

  • Getting more done than they would on their own
  • Weighing up options quickly – and getting decisions made
  • Taking a more positive attitude to getting things done
  • Reducing the self doubting within him/herself
  • Creating momentum and consistency
  • Focussing  their actions on the main things to get done

A life coach course is starting soon that embodies all of the above is the accredited Diploma in Life and Executive coaching  being offered by an organisation called the Positive Success Group Scotland and is set to start in the spring of this year.

The PSG  life coach course will contain seminar guidance that will be of great assistance when a person wants to make definitive decisions on things such as career transition, starting a new business, pause and reflect on current lifestyle choices, or simply looking for personal and professional improvements.
If you are an individual open to change and transition – your potential to improve is limitless.

Who would a life coach course most suit ? Could be anybody in fact. It may be people who want to self coach, leaders, entrepreneurs, trainers, counsellors, parents, retired folk looking for a new lease of life.
Anyone who has the required energy and fully understands  the need for continuing education and self development.

Why do people take a life coach course or hire a personal coach ? Because they want to improve their behaviours that lead to better outcomes for themselves and their families.
They want to learn new and flexible ways of thinking, develop new ways of approaching situations, new ways of analysing events in order to get better results for themselves.

They desire self improvement in being more organised and effective at work, gaining confidence in previously stressful situations, or they simply wish to relate and interact effectively in their relationships and interactions with other people.

‘’We have a great team here at PSG Scotland and from previous experience we realised how beneficial it is that each course intertwines and feeds directly from each other.
The feedback sessions often reveal that the ‘softer’ Life skills can often be successfully deployed in the workplace and the seminars on work-life balance are an invaluable aid in contributing to a more able , more resourceful person coming through at the end of the course.

Also we witness the interaction between people with different backgrounds leading to stimulating debates, strong friendships forged around personal interests but also in forming business partnerships for the future. So all-round , it is an enriching and rewarding experience for all concerned –with a respected and accredited professional qualification at the end of it ’enthused Ian.
