Become a Life Coach!

We offer holistic trainings that will give you the skills and confidence to become a dynamic coach!  If you are drawn to being a world-class coach, you have to have world-class skills yourself, so our trainings focus on:

Body:  How to commit to physical self-care and fitness.

Mind: How to have strong mental discipline and self-management skills.

Spirit: How to gain clarity on your values and be inspired on a soul level!

Relational Skills: How to develop powerful intra- and inter- personal skills so you can create, maintain and deepen rapport with clients and repair any relational glitches that occur along the way. 

The Best Approach to Certified Life Coaching

We believe that the best coaches pursue personal excellence and know how to coach themselves, so we start by helping our students develop their personal skills and these form a reliable foundation for coaching others.

You cannot separate your professional self from yourself as a whole person. Which explains why the integration of coaching skills only occurs when one is fully engaged, present and aligned. This is why we choose to offer our trainings in a way that is relevant to the full dimension of human experience: mind, body, emotion and spirit.

Due to the highly experiential quality of our trainings, you’ll walk away immediately with learning that is embodied and alive, and that is just waiting for you to deepen by deliberate daily practice. You’ll discover how making mistakes is a necessary part of the process of learning and you’ll learn to make use of this valuable step in the company of others.

Most of our training programs include one or more of the following fundamental training modules:

Life in Balance Training
Life in Balance: The 7 Keys unlocks the mystery of developing a balanced life through centering practices, mindfulness and greater awareness. Delve deeply into what makes people tick and how to make a lasting difference in the lives of yourself and others.

NLP Training
NLP skills allow you to change, adopt or eliminate behaviors, as you desire – a powerful tool you can use to create real and lasting change in your emotional, mental and physical wellbeing. It will also transform the way you communicate, thereby improving every relationship in your life.

Life Coaching Training
Outstanding managers and corporate leaders get the best out of their staff through a coaching approach.  Develop the skills to gain the rapport and trust with your staff so that you can help them perform even more effectively. In the process, you’ll learn how to create a dynamic coaching presence and keep yourself and your staff motivated.

Why IPL

As you explore our trainings, you’ll find our approaches and methods are varied and numerous, yet deeply connected. These trainings will link the present to your future, offering you tools and processes for sustainable, ongoing development and success. To us, “going beyond,” means advancing to the next step and beyond the next step.

Deep, sustainable change and development happens via meaningful experiential learning, not superficial quick fixes. You get hands-on guidance and feedback from our qualified trainers in a mix of lecture, discussion, live demonstrations and experiential practice.
