An Individualized, Brain-Based Coach Training Approach

Maximizing Life Experience and  Choice in Your Approach to Coaching
Each of us has life experience that are teachable moments that can empower us in a healthy way.  When an evidence-based research approach to coaching is applied, we can utilize the strengths we gain to develop our coaching skills.  Learning not only changes the way we think, feel, and behave, but it can restructure our brains.  Whether our experiences are positive or negative, our ability to be resilient is significant.  Our ability to sustain and thrive can be modeled to our clients.  This strength can be directed and focused in different areas of functioning and result in the development of creative approaches to coaching and the enhancement of our skills as we create our specialty niches in coaching.
Dr. Clare Steffen is masterful in assisting coach trainees with applying their life experiences, skills, strengths, and limitations, to utilize them to enhance their learning experiences and connection to life.  This approach can be applied no matter which area of coaching is of interest.  Our list of niche areas is provided on the page tab under "services."  We also provide training in the specialty designation areas and apply this individualized teaching model to our coach training.  It is your unique experience that makes you stand out in the field of coaching.  We here at Coaching Choice College are committed to assisting you in making a social contribution and in developing your skills as a social entrepreneur and choice coach.  Why not start today and become a coach who defines their client work by "choice?"  Take your coaching practice to the next level as you learn our choice model and apply it in life and in coaching, and become the model coach your clients want to emulate.  As each of us individually grows, we support one another and strengthen.  It is our university that connects and keeps us in balance.  Join today by taking one of our trainings and begin your journey of integrating your uniqueness into your practice through our approach of holistic education in coach training.

Coaching Choice College Philosophy


Philosophical Foundation:  New Choice Thinking offers an integrative coaching approach utilizing cognitive-behavioral, neuropsychological, and natural health methods.  The foundation of coaching is based on advances in the fields of cognitive-behavioral psychology, education, neuroscience, behavioral medicine, and wellness.  It shares the theoretical roots of existential psychology, choice/control theory, information processing, and social and emotional intelligence.  Building on the best from each of these schools of thought; the coaching approach incorporates the advantages of "social networking."  This holistic approach to coaching allows for the complex and multi-faceted manner in which people communicate in today's world.  Taking into considering that we live in a global society, with multi-cultural influences in which communication occurs instantly; coaching efforts must adapt to the broader spectrum.  As the lines of communication become blended the opportunity for change increases.
