Marti Angel - Coaching Is A Gift
In late February 2016, I attended Advanced Coach School and Coach certification in Tempe, Arizona with the DSWA.
One of the most amazing things that happened to me while I was at DSWA advanced coach school was the internal healing that I received while being coached and oddly enough that was not my intention and it was certainly a complete surprise when it happened.
I met Nicki over 4 years ago and I began to take her courses, and I was hooked. Being an educator, I loved that all the materials and the courses took into consideration all the styles of learning. This intrigued me and sparked my interest.
Although all the other courses are critical to the involvement and development of becoming an effective and caring coach, advanced coach school is more than the culmination of great works.
The healing, the connections and the community spirit that was shared at advanced coach school and the certification was phenomenal. I went into this thinking that I was going to get “How To’s” exclusively. Well, I was wrong. The personal healing and internal awareness along with all my “aha’s” were just icing on the cake.
I never imagined how deep coaching can take you and the road it takes you on and how you can uncover hidden hurts that bring up a flurry of emotions. All these emotions that tend to hold me back from being the best version of myself I can possibly be. I was astonished, and taken back with what came out of my mouth, while I was the one being coached. I uncovered things that were hidden down deep inside me and I was not even aware. The safety I felt to be able to share such deep dark secrets was the reason that I was able to uncover all of this. The ability to be vulnerable was something that I, being a D, in the DISC tool that comes with DSWA, had not experienced before.
As I was in the middle of my vulnerability, I immediately thought, wow, what a powerful and necessary tool for healing as well as for development this coaching can really be. My respect for coaching began to grow stronger and deeper in those moments of vulnerability.
Coaching Is A Gift To The World
It has the capacity to change lives. I had been coached before and had hired many coaches but I had never experienced or felt the depth of caring that DSWA coaching school teaches.
Most of us are in the direct selling, network-marketing business because we are people that want to help others. We want to make a difference in this world. We want to be the best version of ourselves that we can possibly be. DSWA coaching school enhances our ability to touch others in ways that were once hidden from this industry.
DSWA coach school has helped me to make a 180 degree paradigm shift in terms of how I view coaching as a tool for the betterment of my team, but most importantly for every relationship in my life. Being and educator I can see how it can help me relate with my students more effectively and efficiently as well as help them come to better decision for their life.
I will do this course again and again as it has opened up a new realm of possibilities that were once unknown to me. I am extremely excited and humbled to be a part of the chosen few who are certified DSWA coaches.
This is something that I highly encourage others to begin to do for themselves and for others. I truly believe that coaching is for everyone; whether you are the one being coached or you are the coach, you are involved in the most beautiful experience of your life. The opening and awakening that comes through this process is truly a gift that cannot be seen, but will definitely be felt.
I am blessed and excited to be a part of this Coaching profession with the caring and compassionate training I got. I am going back to share with all my team and sing the praises for my new found gift!
