    This Transformation Coaching Model will serve participants of any coaching niche as an entrepreneurial tool for their coaching practice. The Transformational
    Coaching Model helps coaches drill deeper using powerful questions to
    facilitate the client’s forward movement.  This model is inspired from the historical Old Testament leader Nehemiah. It is principle based, capturing responses from Nehemiah’s challenges of rebuilding the wall around Jerusalem.  Along with the tried and proven principles, the model is embedded with the ICF Core Competencies, specifically:  Creating the Coaching Agreement; Creating Trust and Intimacy with the Client; Coaching Presence; Active Listening; Powerful Questioning; Direct Communication; Creating Awareness; and Designing Actions.

    You will receive 1 Core Competency CCEU by attending this webinar.  Through the skilled use of the competencies as a coach, you will connect with your client as they move forward to change; bringing about a transformational process through the coaching session.  The principles of this Transformational Coaching Model and the placement of the competencies are written about in the book titled - Nehemiah Response: a coaching model , available on Amazon.
