“A lot of physicians don’t have a good support network,” he said. “There is a lot of burnout amongst physicians, different challenges and understanding the next steps in their career. There’s been changes in medicine and an increased focus on physician wellness. I decided to look into coaching for that reason, to help other physicians who may have communication challenges or are dealing with stress and burnout.”
What Derek liked about the Coaching and Positive Psychology (CaPP) Institute was the idea of scientific-based coaching rooted in positive psychology and its ability to help others. He also mentioned that the CaPP Institute is where he learned the importance of powerful questions.
“The clients have the answers, you just have to help them get them out of themselves,” he said.
Derek developed a program for new physicians (residents in training) that focuses on communication, professionalism, and interpersonal skills, which help them with bedside manner before they are in practice. He also gives a presentation to medical staff with a focus on helping them develop their emotional intelligence.
Her coaching journey began in 2012 when she was hired by Arizona State University to create their First Year Success Center.
“They really wanted to create a way to provide personalized support and help to students, particularly as freshmen, to feel like there was somebody there who would support them through their journey and they gave me that charge,” she said.
The university-wide initiative began with 30 part-time peer coaches and four staff, and within the first five years, grew to 100 staff and 80 coaches.
“I feel like Valorie and her work has been a part of my journey since the very beginning of creating the center,” Marisel said.
Through Marisel’s work, ASU has become a national model of retention for education. She now spends much of her time traveling to other institutions teaching them her unique coaching framework for use in higher education and helping them create similar coaching centers.
In 2020, Marisel decided to go out on her own into full time consulting.
After years as a Licensed Professional Counselor, author and speaker Robin May decided to expand her skillset to include coaching because she saw the need among a subset of her clients who were mentally healthy and functioning but needed help getting unstuck and achieving important goals.
“Why did I decide to coach? Because counseling comes, in some ways from a medical standpoint, from a place of dysfunction. So I found that I was talking to people who didn’t even have a diagnosis. I couldn’t even officially diagnose them with anything because there wasn’t a dysfunction. There problem was a roadblock, not a dysfunction. I thought, ‘Some of the skills I am using could actually be pulling them backwards because I was coming from a mindset of ‘let me heal this place,’’ instead of a mindset of helping them identify roadblocks to work around them.”
“What coaching has done for me and what I have done for my clients is help them tap into potential that has been lying dormant,” she explains.
How did a former chemist who completed seminary use coaching in his role in organizational development and leadership?
Eujin Ahn is currently the Senior Learning and Development Manager at One Medical where he assists with professional development for the company of over 3,000 employees. His primary function is meeting with leaders and frontline team members to coach them in leadership coaching and career development.
Eujin found the CaPP Institute during his research. After he completed the CPEC program in Feb. 2022, he immediately began incorporating coaching in his one-on-one conversations with leaders. He is actively pursuing his ACC certification with the International Coaching Federation.
“I use coaching in almost every interaction I have,” he said. “It’s just such a powerful tool and experience. Going through CTI/CPEC has been so instrumental for me doing that as a facilitator and coach. It’s such an underutilized skill and capability that everyone has. I feel like coaching has taken mine to the next level where people are surprised, I’m actually listening to what they have to say.”
Before he began coaching, Eujin said he believed people wanted to talk to him as a subject matter expert. But after, he believes they are the subject matter expert, and he asks questions to draw out what it is they already know. He empowers them to take action with what they already have within them.
“There’s definitely a lot more I feel like can be used and leveraged for I will definitely use the coaching. There are so many other things I have and want to do.”
“What’s possible? Well, just about anything when you set your mind to it,” Chris Berry says as he reflects on what he has learned in launching a successful coaching practice.
As a personal coach, Chris connects with clients by creating clarity and providing a safe space to discover Purpose and Direction. His personal passion is serving those in career and life transition. It is a passion born of his personal experiences with company reorganizations and layoffs, feeling stuck in an unfulfilling career, and “being blessed in the union of a blended family.”
His business not only includes coaching, but speaking and facilitation for organizations around the country. In addition to being a Certified Personal and Executive Coach, he holds a bachelor’s degree in Business Information Systems from Tennessee State University and a MBA from Belmont University.
“As a Lead Pastor, I feel that coaching is another way to create and cultivate an environment for people to thrive by helping them to discover their passion and purpose, says Taft Quincey Heatley. As a coach I am called to help draw out what I believe God has placed within them already.”
Taft Quincey Heatley was a successful Wall Street analyst with a major financial firm when he felt pulled towards a career of service. With a mathematics degree from Morehouse and investment experience under his belt, he left his thriving career to go back to school at Princeton Theological Seminary. His goal? Following his calling. It is a path that has led him to write two books (The Pandemic Pastor and God is the Goal) and pastor churches in Atlanta and now Alexandria, VA, earning a Doctor of Divinity degree from Emory University along the way.
But a man who loves learning and follows God is always seeking direction for growth and more opportunity to serve others. Coaching is that opportunity for Dr. Heatley – and the reason he enrolled in the Coach Training Intensive and the Certified Personal and Executive Coach program in 2022. He sees it as a way to practically apply spiritual principles to everyday life and business, helping others get unstuck, discover their God-given purpose and push through their fears and obstacles to live it.
“I didn’t know anything about coaching at the time, I was just mentoring the girls and then that evolved into a girls group that I started running after school,” she said. “I just let them bring whatever topics they had, whatever issues were coming up in their lives that they wanted to sort through and we just started having these conversations.”
After leaving the classroom setting, Tahira began working with girls at a youth center in grades 7-9 that had aged out of the offerings that the center had for kids. She founded Teen Girl Impact, a coaching company to help teens develop strategies to tackle the challenges of life with confidence as they transition into adulthood.
“I felt like I was missing something in terms of how to be a coach. That’s what I loved about the work I did in [CPEC]. That’s when I built my own confidence as a coach,” she said.
“The beauty of bringing coaching the way I learned in CPEC is that it really allows an opportunity to examine yourself and become self aware of your own thoughts and actions, specifically as it affects the students you come in contact with,” she said.
She is currently working with schools in New York and has another project starting in Boston soon. Based in the Atlanta area, Tahira continues pitching to schools there as well.
“Ever since I was a teacher, it’s been really important to me to help girls, especially those who are high achieving and seem like they have it all together, but are struggling inside. I really like this opportunity as their coach to help them build that confidence and courage to step into their own vision for their lives.”
After a 36-year nursing career, she now works with other nurses to help them be their best as leaders.
Pam is an international speaker, author, and certified Compassion Fatigue Professional. She is an expert in resiliency practices and shares that expertise with individuals and teams to promote a flourishing, compassionate work culture.
“I found out I couldn’t do everything and that was something that I had to come to realize,” she said. “Reading Valorie’s book and going through the Coach Training Intensive not only helped me to start my own coaching business, but it helped me look within myself. It was an internal working group, as well as an external coaching exercise.”
After spending time doing individual coaching, Pam took a position with Inspired Nurse Leaders, a company focused on helping nurse leaders become their best.
She didn’t think that at her age she would move back into a full-time position, but she now says this is her legacy work.
“All nurses are tired right now. If we can share our positive intent and our hopefulness with them, and let them know what their strengths are and how they can use those strengths in their daily lives, then they are going to be at their best.”
