OUR APPROACH TO COACHING
At Think Good, we are trained in Core Energy coaching. Data shows that working with a Core Energy Coach™ develops these and other leadership skills.
As many people get stuck in draining, catabolic energy, iPEC coaches are trained to help them raise their energy levels and become more aware of their actions and choices. As a result of this shift to anabolic energy, they’re more apt to inspire others, more open to innovation and possibility, and far better able to pursue goals and find fulfillment in their lives.
The same concept works for leaders...
As a result of this shift to anabolic energy, they’re more apt to inspire others, more open to innovation and possibility, and far better able to pursue goals and lead teams of people.
You can have the most passionate mission statement and boldest vision, yet without effective leaders who know how to inspire, motivate, and bring out the best in others, your organization can spin around in mediocrity, or flat-line altogether. Good leaders improve employee engagement — something that’s significantly lacking in most corporate cultures—and understand how to resolve conflict and create positive work environments.
Each year corporations invest large sums of money to train their leaders in soft skills to raise emotional intelligence, increase self-awareness, and guide them to build powerful interpersonal connections in hopes it will ultimately serve the bottom line. Those same organizations will tell you that it's hard to quantify the return on investment, and more importantly, to sustain the results over the long haul.
iPEC, a comprehensive coach training program that's trained more than 15,000 coaches worldwide, has been studying these very issues. Their proprietary methodology, Core Energy Coaching,™ approaches leadership development in a completely different way than other executive coaching models, because it starts with something so basic, yet so misunderstood: Energy.
Core Energy Coaching begins with a simple premise: All people are continually experiencing energy, in one of two ways postulated by Bruce D Schneider, founder of iPEC: catabolic or anabolic energy. Anabolic energy is constructive, expanding, fueling, and creative, and works for a person. Conversely, catabolic energy is destructive, draining, or resisting and works against a person. The type of energy we experience fluctuates throughout the day and inside of situations. However, because of our attitude and the way we interpret our life experiences, we wind up experiencing the same type of energy over and over again.
