One of the fastest growing areas in the consulting field, coaching, has exploded in popularity, just behind management consulting. Today there are an estimated 10,000 full and part time coaches, and the number of coaches entering the field has doubled in size every year for the past three years,.

There is no standard of education for coaches at this time. Many coaches have no coach training. They are at a disadvantage. Coaching skills are essential when helping clients to assess realistic goals, and to understanding resistance to change. As a masters level professional, you have an ideal background to transition into coaching. You already possess a credentialed professional level education.

This background assists the coach in making an immediate assessment of an individuals "readiness" for coaching. Masters level professionals are educated and experienced. It is not necessary for you to spend years training to be "a coach". It is necessary for professionals to understand the differences between consulting, training, mentoring, psychotherapy and coaching. With some coach training in reframing of your professional skills, you can enter this growing niche market.

NORTHEAST COACHING INSTITUTE offers:
• Coach Training Seminars • Coach Training Supervision • Personal and Professional Coaching
and • A Coaching Certificate Program
in a small classroom setting.


Northeast Coaching Institute Mission Statement

The Mission of Northeast Coaching Institute is to provide masters level professionals with the skills necessary to perform personal, career, and corporate coaching.


Coaching: The Fast-Growing Helping Profession

Coaching focuses on clients strengths. "Most people work with a coach for the same reasons they might seek a personal fitness trainer: they want to improve their performance and image. A coach can help you develop an agenda that focuses on building on your strengths and sharpening your skills to shore up areas that need improvement.

Coaching is an individualized but collaborative process that has time limits, and focused goals. Its designed to help client’s solve problems, increase strategic thinking, improve communication skills and increase self esteem by taking action toward personal goals. People look to coaches for help with some of the same issues they come to therapy for: help with relationships, careers, and changing their lifestyles.

Unlike psychotherapy, understanding unconscious dynamics is not necessary. Coaching is results oriented; there are systems of accountability incorporated into the process to move the client forward even without an extensive understanding of the "whys". It is action oriented and the client is expected to do homework outside the coaching session. Face to face contact is not necessary and the development of transferences is discouraged. There is no set time for sessions. This is determined by the needs of the participants.

Coaches see themselves as "guides" not counselors. Since coaching is not insurance reimbursable it is an excellent way to build a non-managed care market. Coaching works best with healthy individuals who need help to structure their goals and follow through with an action plan to reach them.
