The Magical First Step to Becoming a Coach

I decided to attend coach training with the intention of investing in myself. It was not hard to find the right program thanks to my previous professional life. I decided to take my first step and started The Art & Science of Coaching program.

Everything started with that small step. I thought everything would easily fall into place towards personal development, but that was not the case. Here is my story of the journey to becoming a coach.

Becoming a Solution-Focused Parent

Children are amazing with their full-spectrum, emotional circuitry! However, sometimes we parents are baffled by how emotional, angry, sad, depressed, or combative our children can become even in one moment! Do you ever tell yourself, “I have no idea what to do here and now with my child’s emotions?” Do you ever finish your day and start to criticize your ability to be a good parent?

What is the Difference Between Coaching and Managing?

Tight deadlines, endless meetings and hundreds of emails – the life of a manager is hectic enough without adding coaching to the mix. But taking that extra effort will benefit the bottom line.

Due to time constraints, many manager-employee conversations tend to focus on current issues or problems in the workplace. The result can be employees who become resentful, produce unstable results, or aren’t invested in their job.

Each year in May, International Coach Federation (ICF) celebrates the annual International Coaching Week. It's a week-long celebration of global events, activities, and pro-bono services that aim to educate the public about the value of professional coaching and offer more insight into results and progress made through the coaching process. The ICF believes that local events can contribute to a massive global impact, a belief Erickson shares with our mission "Changing the world, one conversation at a time".
