Our participants tell the story
My journey towards Associated Certified Coach was a positive emotional roller coaster as well one of my most valuable learning experiences. The knowledge, generosity and safe space enabled so much personal reflection and practical impact from powerful questions that I practically got to know a totally new me.
It feels like I have focused on my weaknesses all my life until I finally realized it was ok to embrace my strengths. Being quiet has never been one of those strengths but I finally also learned to “say more by talking less”.
Today, as an experienced coach and business advisor, I am also empowered with the best tools and community access to fellow practitioners to unleash the hidden potential of organizations or individuals.Today I interact with suicidal fellow human beings to highly engaged business leaders and their teams that all share the same vision: To be the one they really want to be and take their next step towards that dream. For me that is extremely meaningful. I help others to save the planet. I save companies. I save people. One by one.
Coaching is one of my most important tools. I am humble and grateful for how CoachCompanion transformed me to a crisper version of myself. We all have a decision in every interaction we have, person by person. To judge or to be curious. I choose curiosity. Coaching will remain a crucial leadership skills going forward for me as I believe it will be for anyone else out there in the flatter organization
In 2018, I joined my first Coaching course at Coach Companion in Malmö. I left the 1-year ACTP program in the middle by getting a Diploma for the Swedish market. After a few years of soul searching, I contacted Coach Companion again because I found that the Diploma was not enough as an international Coach credential.
The ACTP program in 2021 was online and offered in English for learners around the world. It was good to compare the classroom and online courses. I found the quality of the online course was no less than the classroom experience, rather it was more efficient and focused. The transit of break-out sessions was swift and automatic, and no time was wasted. Chatting with classmates during breaks may be missed but the convenience of the online setting encouraged us to set up sessions frequently and build deeper bonds throughout the year, not only during the classes but also during the individual peer coaching sessions.
Being an ICF certified Coach now, I am glad to finish the 1-year ACTP program. For me who wants to work internationally as a coach, it is indispensable to obtain the common knowledge and skills of the ICF professional coach through this one year program.
Last year, I had the privilege of starting the ACTP education with Coach Companion. The 16-day education program was amazing and was one of the best things to have happened in my life in the past few years. The ACTP education set me on an everyday journey of selfdiscovery and has led to a lot of perceivable clarity and transformation in my life. It also helped me gain a lot of self-confidence in my abilities as a coach – which I take with me into every coaching session with my clients.
I strongly recommend CoachCompanion for anyone willing to explore coaching education programs.
It has been a wonderful journey to complete ACTP education with CoachCompanion and I am grateful to meet inspiring people and learn how to coach. Training brought me plenty of self-discoveries and made me wait from one gathering to another with big dose of excitement.
I highly recommend CoachCompanion as very professional organisation and will always remember when Ulla and group found for me the symbol of throne with heart.
The coaching training has given me a new dimension of listening. I have always valued listening and often been told I am a good listener and through coaching I have learned that there is so much behind listening and how powerful it is to really be with another person in their world.
A fantastic experience that I bring with me in every situation together with other people.
I am so grateful for the time spent with CoachCompanion and my peers in this journey of self-discovery and growth to become Certified Coaches.
This training has allowed me to learn a lot about myself and the tools that will help me support others in their own journeys towards achieving their goals and dreams. Thank you, CoachCompanion!
I have started the course with CoachCompanion in 2018 and it was very transformational for me in many ways. The turbulent times have started in 2019 made it even more purposeful. Coaching taught me how to look upon many things from different perspective. It is the most value based approach I have ever experience working with many development tools. It also gave me great opportunity to extend my circle of influence and meet many wonderful people.
