You Can Take Your Company Further

 John Kim and Noelle Cordeaux

You’ve seen first hand the difference that clear communication can make when developing people within your organization and you’ve felt frustrated by your own lack of training or inability to make the kind of impact you know you’re capable of. 

Too often, HR leaders are held back by the limited imagination of corporate management above them or a lack of organizational flow. You’re sure that there’s more you could be offering to your team, and more that could be done to help everyone in the organization from executives to new hires.

Perhaps your company is even willing to pay for training, but you’re having trouble finding the right program or helping your company understanding exactly how it can benefit your corporate culture.

"I love my company. I want to do more to help our employees thrive."

...I want to develop people and know I can do a better job at it...

...I know I can offer so much more to help our managers become more effective...

...Our company could benefit from the skills and talents I have, if only I could showcase them better...

What if there was a different way?

Take Your Company to the Next Level

❯ Life coaching is a complementary skill for human centered work
❯ Learn how to hold space, ask the right questions and tailor conversations to suit the situation
❯ Develop employees and keep them moving forward

Building a culture of coaching within an organization breaks down barriers and creates a culture of progress, inquiry and motivation that can help take your business to the next level.

Extend Your Reach as an HR Professional

❯ Coaching is a powerful, heart-centered form of development that benefits everyone in an organization
❯ Increase opportunities for development and growth at every level
❯ Build the resiliency of your team and help everyone to flourish to the fullest

If you work in HR, you’re already having informal coaching conversations with your colleagues on a daily basis. New skills are constantly needed to gain a business advantage, and you can help bring more to the table to help develop colleagues and executives alike. Through training you can build increased awareness and gain confidence in your coaching abilities.

Use Your Story to Help Others

❯ No matter what's in your past, there’s tremendous power in your story to affect others
❯ Your unique perspective is the reason clients want to work with you
❯ Help others get unstuck and move forward with authenticity and honesty

Drawing from your unique background, JRNI will help you learn to use your story in your own unique practice as a coach.

Develop Your Personal Skill Set

❯ Ask the right questions with appreciative inquiry
❯ Understand the life-changing power of positive psychology
❯ Leverage the science of meaning and purpose

HR leaders can personally benefit greatly from understanding the science behind coaching, including the power of positive psychology, the mind-body connection, intention setting, mindfulness and goal setting theory.

Training will help increase and refine your coaching skills, and help you build an ongoing, open coaching culture within your organization. 

The next cohort of The Catalyst Intensive begins October 21st, 2018, and runs for 16 consecutive weeks. Continue 2018 with a renewed understanding of your goals, and a fresh slate to build your coaching practice.

Irreverent Gamechangers

We get asked a lot about that word "irreverent," and what it means to the Catalyst Coaching Intensive. It represents the kind of vibrant, live-out-loud spirit we embody as an organization and look for in our potential coaches.

We seek to dismantle the systems that hold each of us back unfairly.
We create opportunities for everyone to succeed.

We leave the status quo behind.
We commit to creating a life we truly love.

We won't be bound by the expectations that were set for us before we were even born.  
We write our own roadmaps and make our own future.

We are hungry for more and commit to living life to the fullest, whatever that looks like for each of us.

The Catalyst Coaching Intensive is for those who are tired of the system.
It’s for genuine gamechangers who have a strong desire to create lasting change in the lives of others and are determined to succeed on their own terms.

Why should I add Coaching to my skill set, as an HR PRofessional?

If you work in HR, you’re already having informal coaching conversations with your colleagues on a daily basis. Through training you can build increased awareness and gain confidence in your coaching abilities and help you build an ongoing, open coaching culture within your organization. 

What are the advantages of training with JRNI?

JRNI offers science-backed, evidence-based life coach training that is deeply rooted in positive psychology. Our program is entirely online and lasts 20 weeks, which includes live weekly coach training, exposure to a wide variety of methods and techniques, and business development.

We are not just a training program but a vibrant, diverse, and inclusive community of coaches who are committed to bettering ourselves and the world. Your journey doesn’t end when your training does, JRNI offers lifetime support, live events, real world experience and a solid foundational community to uplift and support you as you reach your own goals.  

We often tell people that this isn’t a life coaching program, it’s a life changing program. We say this because we’ve seen it time and time again and we can’t wait for you to experience it for yourself.

Do I have what it takes to become a coach?

A great coach is someone who is passionate about helping others, inspired by the wide breadth of human possibility, and able to help others stoke the potential within themselves. Good coaches are devoted to the growth of their clients and to always learning and growing. We believe that a successful coach can come from almost any background.

People bring their whole selves to coaching -- their story, their history, their experiences, unique talents and beliefs -- and create a practice that is as unique as they are. Our graduates also have come from all different backgrounds -- therapists, executives, managers, HR professionals, fitness experts, influencers, stay at home dads, mothers looking to re-enter the workforce, nurses, yoga instructors and hundreds more.

The thing our people have in common is a strong desire to improve themselves and a calling to do this work. They often tell us that they’ve been coaching informally and having these conversations for years, and now want to take it to the next level with professional training and support.

If you feel the pull to do this, then you are probably in the right place! Let’s schedule a call to talk more about your goals and how JRNI can help you.

Is this program Certified by the International Coaching Federation?

Yes! Our program is accredited by the International Coach Federation (ICF), the only globally recognized, independent credentialing program for coach practitioners, via their CCE program (Continuing Coach Education). When you graduate from our program you will be awarded 36 CCE credits towards ICF certification or renewal. The ICF is a non-profit, professional organization and their mission is to build, support and preserve the integrity of the coaching profession.

That being said, coaching is an emerging and unregulated field. There are quite a few organizations who have set up very good professional standards (that we teach and adhere to) and many organizations that certify coaches in a specific technique or school of thought. There are athletic coaches, executive coaches, health coaches, life coaches and so many more.

At JRNI we train life coaches to work and build practices in the wellness marketplace. We certify that all of our coaches have been trained in our evidence-based technique and are theoretically, relationally and ethically qualified to work as coaches. Our training is grounded in adaptive therapeutic change technique, goal setting theory, the science of positive psychology, and much more. Beyond theory you will learn everything you need to know to coach, from theories and concepts to branding and marketing.

How does JRNI define life coaching?

Life coaching is a partnership between a coach and a client that moves the client forward to become the best version of him or herself through the application of motivation, accountability, planning, troubleshooting and support.
