“As a leader, I am often approached by my staff for help in their professional lives and sometimes even their personal lives. For years I struggled to help them by offering advice that I wasn’t even sure was the best thing for them. Knowing I needed help to learn how to advise my people, I decided to take ASPLC’s coaching course. In the past, if someone came to me with a problem, I would immediately come up with a solution for them and then jump in with advice. This training taught me that people often have the best answers to their own problems within them and it’s my job to help them find those answers. By using Transformational Listening, I now have the tools to listen to someone’s problem and ask them questions that help them find their best solution. I no longer push my own agenda or coerce people to take my advice.”
Become a Professional Leadership Coach (PLC)
Coach training is not only for individuals who are considering becoming professional life coaches. In fact, leaders from hundreds of different fields are now recognizing that coach training is the ideal fit for their generation. Learning how to coach people (whether they are employees, students or children) requires a new set of skills not taught in traditional leadership development courses. Leaders who take advantage of coach training have what we call “The Coach Advantage:” the ability to inspire others and to create a work environment that accesses individual strengths and personal purpose. At the core of this approach is the respect and interest in others that brings out their inner brilliance.
At ASPLC, we teach a revolutionary technology that consistently produces the results we most want: fantastic work relationships, mutual respect and great thinking.
While the ideas of inspirational leadership sound nice, the truth is that it is easier to fall back on old strategies of control and advice giving. We need a new set of skills to really bring out the best in others… We need a new way of being with others that gives us the relationship results we really want.
We call this new skill: Transformational Listening.
While Transformational Listening is relatively simple to understand (check out our eBook “The 5 Levels of Listening”), it requires training and practice to integrate these skills to the point where they become habitual. ASPLC’s small-group trainings ensure that you master Transformational Listening and begin reaping the benefits of “The Coach Approach” in your professional and personal life.
Participants attend six (6) full-day trainings (can be on-site or virtual) and bi-monthly 90-minute virtual seminars. This training is often delivered in conjunction with ASPLC’s corporate partner uThink Consulting as a component of uThink’s Black Belt Coach Certification Program.
