Introduction to the Coach Certification Training Course

This course helps you to coach yourself first and hence discovers or rather uncovers the true potential of coaching also as a coach. It fine tunes the coaching competencies as per international certification requirements.

The program involves a holistic approach to coaching as it combines Eastern philosophy and Western approaches, ie. spiritual and analytical.

The Emmpower brand of coaching certification has an inspirational essence which enables self awareness, self regulation and self motivation. It empowers self transformation to become a centered coach and leader.

The face to face session help the individual to open up and break free. It makes it easy for the individual to go in depth; share their emotions and learn about themselves.

The session gives an appreciative insight into unrealized potential and inner resources of an individual. The program enables you to address business applications and development as well, apart from working with personal attitudes and values. Reaching your long term goal and working backwards from your life vision is another unique approach to the program.
