From Distress to Success: Introducing the Coaching Continuum™
There are many reasons to engage a coach — leadership development, career change, the pursuit of work-life balance, enhanced wellness, and more. In our experience, coaching is sometimes sought because it is more attractive or palatable than counselling. However, coaching may be of little or no help if emotional distress is not first resolved. Empirical research (Dulude, 2012) suggests that over 24% of those seeking coaching are in the elevated range of psychological distress. The Coaching Continuum™ helps coaches identify the client’s readiness for coaching and provides a path of coaching interventions to enhance a client’s resilience and coaching capacity.
Client Screening for Successful Coaching Engagement
Prospective clients present at all levels of emotional and physical health, with varying degrees of psychological resilience. As such, the coach is responsible for identifying potential barriers to a client’s success, and for negotiating a coaching engagement that addresses those barriers.
Client Screening for Successful Coaching Engagement teaches novice and seasoned coaches how to locate a prospective client on the Coaching Continuum™ and match coaching to the client’s coaching capacity for best results. This continuing education program is ICF-approved and was developed by Manon Dulude Ph.D., PCC, BCC, in collaboration with Jeanne Erikson Ph.D., PCC.BCC. Client Screening for Successful Coaching Engagement is offered through The Institute for Life Coach Training. For more information or to register, please click here.
In addition to offering training to coaches, Forge Coaching & Consulting offers mentoring and coaching supervision services to new and experienced coaches at the Associate Certified Coach (ACC) and Professional Certified Coach (PCC) levels.
