Getting Real Coaching — Coaches Training Program
Purpose: To train coaches who can assist others:
- to live a life of aware presence, instead of identifying themselves as their stories or as the contents of their minds;
- to develop practices that help them notice when they are present and when they are living from a limiting belief (e.g. believing that the story is the truth);
- to apply the 10 truth skills described in the book, Getting Real, to all areas of their lives (health, career, relationships, social and community life, inner or spiritual life, play, sex, family)
The Training Program is individually tailored to fit the aptitude and experience level of the trainee. There are no specific prerequsites for entry into the program other than: (1) reading Getting Real, and committing to practice the 10 truth skills in your own life; (2)attending at least one Getting Real two-day workshop and one 6 or 8 week teleclass, so you can see how his work fits your values and style.
You may elect to be trained as a Getting Real Coach. Or you may wish to participate in some of Susan's training events in order to add these tools to your coaching toolbox.
If you become a Getting Real Coach, then you will receive support setting up your own teleclasses, Honesty Salons, drop-in events, workshops, game nights, team building game events, and corporate trainings on "Honest Feedback."
After you have met the basic prerequisites, you will have a series of meetings with Susan to assess your level of interest, skill, and commitment and to plan out what your training program will consist of and what it will cost.
The outcome of these meetings is a contract or letter of agreement between you and Susan defining what you will get and what it will cost.
Training to be a Getting Real Coach involves participating in a learning community with other trainees. These people are committed to practicing the truth skills (such as honest feedback) with each other. This results in rapid personal growth and a sense of being part of a meaningful culture change movement (the change from "right, safe, and certain" to "real, unique, and open.")
