“The training was incredible! Thank you for all of the follow-up documentation. I have been making my way through the paperwork, as well as the 54 pages of notes that I took. I originally thought that this training was something that I would try to practice over the next few months, but really focus on further down the road. I now know that once the door is opened, you can’t stop destiny. I already have three practice clients booked. I feel grateful for the opportunity to work with [Floursing Life Coaching] and for the wonderful network that was formed.”

The Certified Flourishing Coach Model™ is evidence-based and practitioner focused, meaning that it is based on science and psychology. “Evidence-based” describes an approach to medicine, education, and other disciplines that emphasizes the practical application of the findings of the best available current research. Essentially, it means that a concept or practice is supported by a large amount of scientific research.
So, when we describe the Flourishing Coaching Model™ as evidence-based, we mean that we are taking the best available current research around people, change, and specifically how people flourish, and practically applying it with a coaching lens.
Is the Certified Flourishing Life Coach™ Program
A GOOD FIT FOR ME?
Having literally trained and certified thousands of coaches from dozens of countries all around the world, from all backgrounds and philosophies and paradigms and professions, we have noticed what it takes to become a successful coach who has significant impact. You may be asking yourself what is needed to make it as a coach. Here’s what we’ve noticed makes a GREAT coach:
A GOOD LISTENER
One of the greatest myths is that coaches do most of the talking. They don’t. They spend the majority of their time LISTENING and asking great questions that lead their clients to the answer they are looking for. If you’re a great listener, you would be a great coach!
Coaches see opportunities where others see obstacles. They empathize with their clients and where they are at, but they are also able to move them to see past limitations to possibilities. If you have a way about you that sees solutions to problems, you would be amazing at this!
Great coaches know how to listen to their inner voice. They are intuitive and reflective. They know they don’t have all the answers but look for a way to find them. They are committed to their own personal growth and move others towards a growth mindset as well.
Your life experience makes you an amazing coach already, and so when you combine that with the evidenced-based practices you can learn in the Certified Flourishing Coaching™ model, you will have a framework for your coaching that will set your clients up for success.
Our curriculum is taught by our most experienced mentors LIVE, not canned and recorded. You can attend our training in-person, or interact live with the group from the comfort of your home or office.
Inside your Student Portal, you can access workbooks, bonus trainings, resources and quick links to support you during your course experience. Our beautiful and easy-to-use dashboard makes finding everything you need quick and simple.
Accelerate your capacity to get the best out of people by enhancing your professional development with our program. Our training supports leaders in the way they communicate and engage with their teams.
Once you’ve completed the live sessions, you will be matched with a CFLC mentor for a 60-minute follow-up call to discuss your goals and how to best apply what you’ve learned to your life, and answer any questions you may have about next steps.
A keystone to the success of our students is community. Our attendees develop new, genuine friendships during the course of their training, and these relationships are a major component to the success of your life moving forward. Ask questions, be inspired, and connect with people who are just like you!
