FAQ Coaching Mastery
- When does the next course start?
The next course will start on August 10, 2020.
- What is this course about?
The Coaching Mastery Course is a 20 module, hands-on program designed exclusively for Integrative Nutrition Health Coaches to develop mastery of skills, confidence, and self-awareness for personal and professional growth.
Students learn how to improve their practice and up their coaching game by sharpening and expanding their skills, overcoming limiting beliefs and barriers, and applying theories of psychology, coaching, and counseling to understand the forces that shape and influence their clients’ attitudes and behaviors.
This is accomplished through cutting-edge curriculum, real-life practice, self-reflection activities, and skill building assignments that challenge students to put themselves in the shoes of both the coach and client, and reflect upon their beliefs about self, others, and the world around them.
- Are there any prerequisites for enrolling?
The Coaching Mastery Course is open to any IIN graduate or student currently in the Health Coach Training Program.
- How much time will I need to dedicate to this course?
The more you put into this course, the more you will get out of it. Content is divided into 20 weekly modules. It takes about 2 hours to view the lectures and complete the activities in each module. Also, while it’s not a requirement for graduation, we strongly recommend working with a coaching practice partner (or real clients!) and holding at least one session per week to practice the skills learned in that module.
In addition, we recommend that you regularly connect with your moderators and classmates in the course Facebook group, joining in the discussions and asking questions. So, altogether, plan to dedicate at least 3 hours per week to this course.
The main factors that will affect your time commitment are how much time you devote to coaching clients (or practicing with a partner) and how much you choose to participate in discussions with the moderators and student community throughout the course.
- I’m not currently seeing clients. How am I supposed to practice my skills?
Don’t worry! If you’re seeing clients and can use your sessions as opportunities to apply and practice what you learn – that’s great! If you don’t have paying clients, you can still get the same benefit by recruiting friends and colleagues as unpaid practice clients. Who knows, maybe one will even sign with you!
Another thing we strongly recommend—even if you have paying clients—is pairing up with a fellow student as coaching practice partners during the course. To find a practice partner, simply post in your course’s private Facebook group that you’re looking for one. You can connect by phone, videoconference, or even in person if you live near each other. Then you can take turns holding practice sessions as coach and client. An added bonus here is that you get to experience coaching from the client’s perspective. And getting feedback from another student in the course? Priceless!
- Is this course completely online?
Yes. Similar to the Health Coach Training Program, the Coaching Mastery Course is entirely online. It consists of a combination of videos, handouts, homework assignments, and daily moderated discussions on Facebook. If you like the feel of pen and paper while you work, the handouts are available to download and print.
- What do I get when I complete the program? Is there a certificate or does my title change?
At the end of the program, you’ll receive a certificate of completion and a digital badge to publicly showcase your education. Because the course does not alter your scope of practice, your title won’t change.
The Coaching Mastery Course teaches students concepts regarding the psychology of human behavior, as it relates to coaching and personal development, which is different than training in counseling psychology. This course doesn’t provide any credits or certification to practice any type of counseling or psychological work. Graduates of the program are still ethically mandated to practice within the scope of an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach.
- How is this different than the Health Coach Training Program?
The Health Coach Training Program has a strong emphasis on nutrition, as well as business, in addition to coaching and personal development.
The Coaching Mastery Course focuses solely on coaching and personal growth. It builds on the basic knowledge of coaching skills that you learned in the Health Coach Training Program, and takes it much deeper.
This advanced-level offering breaks down coaching psychology, offering you the opportunity to learn how to support your clients to grow in profound ways, help guide them when they’re stuck or resistant, and understand why this happens. You’ll also apply these concepts to yourself, giving you the opportunity to master “walking your talk.”
- How is this different than the IIN Advanced Business Course?
The IIN Advanced Business Course focuses on advanced concepts for growing your coaching business, including topics like target market, money mindset, lead generation, social media, and sales.
The Coaching Mastery Course focuses on coaching psychology and how to work more effectively with clients. Core concepts include building rapport, supporting clients who feel stuck, multicultural competence, shifting beliefs, and working through difficult emotions. There is a strong emphasis on self-growth and active practice. If you want to create deeper connections with your clients and with yourself and understand the psychology behind why people do what they do, you’ll love this course!
- What if I haven’t started coaching yet? Can I still take this course?
Yes! In this course, we encourage you to get out there and start practicing your skills right away—even if you’ve never had a paid client before or if you’re just starting out practicing with your fellow students. Many students have taken this course who were yet to have their first paying client, and reported that it was a great resource to help them get started.
As long as you’re a graduate of IIN or a current student, you’ll have enough foundational information to understand the material and start putting yourself out there!
- Who should I contact if I have further questions or need assistance?
