Coaches Collective International (CCI) is a team of world-class coaches and trainers. Located in cities across the country, these eight elite coaches collectively have 18,000-plus hours of coaching experience, 85 years of corporate management and executive experience, and more than 70 years of education and academic experience. They have successfully coached executives and managers at some of the nation’s largest, and smallest, companies, nonprofits and educational institutions.
One of the shared values of the CCI coaches is to make the power and impact of professional coaching available to others who normally may not have access to this life-changing process. Putting their values to work, the coaches of CCI have established an ongoing offering of coaching scholarships. Each scholarship recipient will receive 10 hours of coaching from one of the accredited CCI life coaches.
Why is it called a ‘Pay It Forward’ Professional Coaching Scholarship? The scholarship comes with a challenge: Each scholarship recipient is asked to find a way to “pay back” the scholarship by “paying it forward” to someone else. Don’t worry, as a scholarship recipient, you won’t be expected to coach others, but rather you will be asked to use what you’ve learned to help someone else. For example, a retired worker who benefited from life coaching decided to “pay it forward” by volunteering at a local nature preserve, helping others to connect with nature in a way that will benefit both the individuals and the environment. An ex-felon who used the coaching service to explore ways he could make himself more marketable to prospective employers, now speaks to young people about the long-term impact of bad short-term decisions. And a college student struggling to find his occupational passion leveraged what he learned through life coaching to help his younger brother who also was struggling to know what path to take.
What kinds of things can a Professional Coach help me with? A coach helps you identify where you are today and where you want to be tomorrow, and then works with you to develop an actionable plan to realize your goals. Coaching can help you sort through a personal issue or a problem at the office. If there is a relationship that’s troubling you at home or work, coaching can help. If you are having trouble getting past a particular road block in your career, or you’re anxious about a major life transition like a job change, marriage or divorce, coaching can help gain the clarity, courage and confidence to break through to a better way. More than 95 percent of individuals who have worked with a CCI coach say they made significant progress toward their goals.
Who’s eligible?You are! The successful applicants will be those who can articulate the area of improvement they’re committed to work on with a CCI coach, and who have a general idea about how they will “pay it forward” in the future.
When and where does the coaching take place?Scholarship recipients will work with their coaches to select the best time for coaching sessions. The coaching occurs by phone. The average session is 30 to 90 minutes, two to four times per month.
