Reflective Log from the Course
I recently undertook the ICF Diploma with Become, which has been a highly rewarding experience both professionally and personally.
I am career coach myself, and as a continuous learner I am always looking for ways in which I can develop further and enhance the services I provide to my clients.
Working with Joseph has been educational, performance enhancing and , most importantly, enjoyable. Joseph is a professional, subject matter expert who is warm, engaging and easy to develop rapport with. He has a great coaching and mentoring style and has superb interpersonal skills. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending others to work with Joseph.
I work in long term transformation through 1 on 1 coaching and wanted to get an ICF qualification that was helpful for my learning and practice.
So I looked for an online course and completed a Diploma in Integrative Coaching with Joseph and the team at Become Coaching & Training.
Throughout the years I have attended other coaching programmes and found Become’s mixture of learning methods refreshing.
The education and care we received, the details, the practical application of concepts and the group dynamic made for an overall stellar experience. There is a huge depth of expertise and experience that shines out of this organisation and I can wholeheartedly recommend them.
Choosing to become a qualified coach with Become Coaching & Training was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.
I found Become and instantly Joseph filled me with confidence. His training, expertise and reputation spoke for itself, but I was really interested in his integrative approach. I valued the mentoring sessions were personalised and getting the chance to talk about my practice and get advice was one of the most helpful experiences of my career so far.
All of this resulted in opening my coaching business and finding paying clients. It’s so fulfilling and I honestly believe that I would not have had the courage, competence and support to do so if I’d had chosen another course.
