Deepen Your Coaching Efficacy With New Skills
Turning life’s messiness into growth
Facilitator: Sheryl Richard
Date/time: 2-4:30 p.m. ET Thursdays, April 13, 20 and 27
CEUs: Wellcoaches 7.5, ACSM 7.5, NBHWC 7.5, NCHEC 7.5
Do you want to bravely show up as your authentic self, embracing genuine, healthy relationships and working toward whole-person fulfillment?
Does fear of success, messing up, or failing keep you from pursuing what is meaningful for you and retreating to a comfort zone?
Are any of these pain points for you: vulnerability, transparency, shame, inadequacy?
Have perfectionistic tendencies gotten in the way of who/how you want to be, what you want in your life, and what you desire to accomplish?
Welcome to this class if you answered yes to any of those questions. Take a deep breath and know that you are not alone. Many of us go through life as though everything needs to be perfectly polished, including ourselves, in order for things to be accomplished or even started. We compare ourselves to others, overthink, plan, and prepare to the point of chronic procrastination. We exaggerate our strengths while masquerading our weaknesses and shortcomings for fear that we will be exposed.
Why is this so? Well, there are various reasons. The thoughts and the narratives running through our minds are among the culprits.
What do we do about it? We can accept that we are in this together, have grace for ourselves and others, and allow our experiences to be springboards rather than showstoppers in our resolve to resiliently persevere, grow, achieve, and thrive.
This class entails a review of, and deeper dive into, the concepts presented in the previous two Magnificent Messmaker® member classes (recordings included with registration). Sheryl Richard will walk participants through the Magnificent Messmaker® framework, which involves Triple Threat™ (with consideration of Self-Determination Theory) as related to perfectionism, relationship, and well-being. She will also share practices and tools to carry the learning forward with real-life applicability. Breakout discussions, in-and-outside of class exercises, and other experiential opportunities will allow participants to explore perspectives of (and relationship with) failure, success, and what it means to thrive. Participants will learn practical ways to embrace and embody their authentic selves. In addition, guest speakers will share their perspectives and experiences, modeling what it means to be a Magnificent Messmaker®
The learning objectives for this course are:
Discuss concepts of Magnificent Messmaker® and Triple Threat™ (with consideration of Self-Determination Theory)
Identify nine essentials for turning life’s messiness into magnificent opportunities and growth
Identify practices for improving perspectives
Identify opportunities and practices for navigating the fear of messing up
Address healthy responses to making mistakes, failure, and success
Commit to cultivating a growth mindset

Using the power of the natural world to help heal, inspire, and challenge
Facilitator: Michael Scholtz
Date/time: Noon-1:30 p.m. ET Wednesdays, May 3-24
CEUs: Wellcoaches 6, ACSM 6, NBHWC 6, NCHEC 6
We will explore empirical evidence of the positive effects of nature on emotional and physical well-being. From beneficial bacteria in the soil we touch, to breathing in the aromatics of plants and trees, to listening to the calming quality of birdsong, nature measurably impacts our health. We’ll discuss some of the compelling science as well as some ideas for helping clients connect to nature in a way that soothes and heals.
Beyond the benefits to our health, nature can inspire us to greater things. Being in the outdoors can help clients to tap into positive emotions, which can open their eyes to new pathways and resources they are not fully utilizing.
And, in nature we can seek challenge. Nature provides an arena where adventures can unfold. We will talk about ways clients can discover their growth-promoting adventures.
* You will learn about scientific evidence that supports how nature positively impacts our health and well-being.
* You will learn about resources that you can share with clients to help them better utilize the healing powers of the outdoors.
* You will learn about how nature can lead to inspiration, creating a space for your clients to create more expansive visions and take on more growth opportunities.
* You will learn about resources that you can share with clients to help them use nature experiences to tap into inspiration.
* You will learn how clients can use outdoor adventure as a tool for growth.
Cut Through the Noise:
The Stark Truth About what it Takes to Make a Living at Coaching
Facilitator: Mary Cravets
Date/time: Noon-3 p.m. ET Tuesday, May 16
CEUs: Wellcoaches 3, NBHWC 3
To earn enough money to support a life you love, you must master two skill sets: coaching skills and business development skills.
Wellcoaches has equipped you fully for the first, but so often new coaches' businesses fail because they either…
1. Avoid the business development skills altogether- and their business goes nowhere. OR…
2. Get overwhelmed by conflicting advice from marketing “gurus” who leave you feeling lost, turned off by icky sales tactics, and paralyzed with confusion.
It’s time to cut through the noise, simplify, and make sure you’re doing the right things to grow your business.
This workshop is not for the faint of heart! It provides hard truths and straightforward advice so you will:
· Understand how to use 3 simple questions to create your own unique strategy to get more clients and become profitable faster
· Uncover mindset roadblocks about sales and marketing, so you put yourself out there in ways you actually enjoy!
· Learn the easy-to-overlook myths, mistakes and missteps that significantly slow your ability to get paying clients
· Figure out the best use of your time as you get started (especially if you have a full-time job you want to escape!)
