WHAT?

What is a life coach?
Let’s clear things up. There is a ton of confusion about what coaching is and what is not. Your success actually depends on how clearly you understand this.

What is an ILS Coach?
ILS stands for InnerLifeSkills® which gives you a unique edge. As an ILS Master Coach you will have world class coaching competencies AND

What true coaching is NOT? Facilitating
Coaching can enhance facilitators skills, but they are different.

Mentoring or Training
A trainer or Mentor determines the objectives of a session and transfers their knowledge. Coaches wake people own inner knowledge.

unique ILS trademarked proven processes... 5 examples are: ¡ to coach inner obstacles ILS Kite (like fear, procrastination, doubt) ¡ ILS Power Formula to coach goals, projects & performance ¡ ILS Apple Tree to coach purpose ¡ Quest to coach children ILS Hero ¡ ILS Money Cup to transform financial blocks.

Counseling or Consulting
In consulting & counseling advice is given. A true coach never gives advice. A coach uses skills & processes to empower a client to draw out their own solutions & insights.

What coaching IS?
Life & Business Coaching is... the specialized art of holding solution focused conversations. Coaching supports a Coachee (anyone being coached) to be able to access insights and solutions from within themselves, moving themselves into positive proactive clearly defined action that enables them to achieve their full potential in the area of their goals and objectives. Imagine how it feels to discover your own AHA insights and inner resources. That’s what a coach inspires.

When is enough?
Coaching courses vary in duration from: ~ fly by night 1 day workshop ~ to 2 year academic diplomas Strictly speaking, according to ICF (International Coaching Federation) if a course is designed well and is packed with value, it should take no longer than 120 - 170 hours (approx 7 - 11 months part time) to qualify at internationally recognized standards. If the course is much longer then be sure to check that its well designed, and is not filled with too much academic study. Coaching after all is a practical skill. If you are comparing courses, then ask the training managers these questions:
? can I start actually practicing “When

When can you enroll?

WHERE?

Where to train?
Your choices are likely to be: ? IN-person group classes ? courses with group Distance tele-classes ? tutoring Private ? training at your In-house company or organization

Where ILS trains?
ILS has various licensed trainers & training centers available.
Choose what is best for your location needs & schedule. ILS OFFERS: COME TO US: ? In-person group courses & seminars DISTANCE: ? tutor based distance courses Private WE’LL COME TO YOU: ? a group at a venue & we’ll bring Gather the training of any ILS modules to you. Groups sizes need to be 6+ for venues in South Africa & 20+ internationally.

Most imported coaching courses combine some life inperson training with group teleclasses. We DON’T recommend group tele-classes because you really don’t get individual attention. Private tutoring via Skype or telephone with a skilled trainer can work well, but can be more expensive. IN-Person training (actually sitting with an experienced trainer) is still the best, because coaching is a skill. Like learning guitar, it helps to have someone guide you and observe your skills to give you valuable direct feedback.
