Find Your Ideal Coach

Choosing the right relationships for you and your desired outcome.

When it’s time to find a coach, most people naturally gravitate toward someone they are comfortable with and feel they can trust. Finding the best possible coach for YOU to work with may take some time and effort but can make all the difference in the world. Selecting the coach most suited to your needs and personality will greatly increase your level of success and satisfaction. Coach Training World is prepared to assist you with this process.

Tips on selecting the best coach for your needs and desired outcome

Decide what type of coaching would best help you meet your goals.
There are many different arenas of coaching to fulfill the various needs of its recipients – life, wellness, business, communications or life transitions, and more. The coaches at Coach Training World are trained in Whole Person Coaching enabling them to assist a diverse clientele with fulfilling their desired outcomes.

Determine what traits are important to you in a coach.
These can be anything from gender and age to professional/life experiences and fee structure.

Coaching Bio:

Casey Tabolt is an ICF ACC, WPCC certified coach specializing in helping moms rediscover and honor all the parts of themselves in order to take better care of themselves and live more intentional and fulfilling lives.

Casey is a wife and mother of 2, who has been a work from home entrepreneur since 2015. It was in the midst of running her Etsy shop and taking care of a newborn and toddler that she was came face to face with how unsustainable her life had become. She was diagnosed with a severe autoimmune disease that put her in the hospital for 3 months, fighting for her life. She attributes her miraculous recovery to the choice she made to find meaning and purpose in her suffering, her willfulness, and last but not least, her love for her children.

It was through this experience that Casey learned how to reconnect with herself and started rebuilding her life intentionally by honoring her values. She started to debunk the myths of self care that had kept her from taking care of herself in any meaningful way. She adopted a new mindset and felt immense gratitude and appreciation for her new life and the lessons she had learned. She committed herself to personal growth, and took the steps necessary to share her knowledge and be of service to moms who feel invisible in their lives. Casey is passionate about helping moms reconnect to their inner voice; honor their strengths, hopes and dreams; and make self care the feel good habit it needs to be.

Today she spends her time seeking joy, homeschooling and peaceful parenting her kids and supporting moms as they make themselves a priority, follow their dreams and honor their whole selves so they can show up as the best mom possible.

She deeply values service and growth and can help you rediscover your path and yourself all while becoming the mom you were meant to be. She knows the struggles of overcoming our pasts, learning how to develop our own unique parenting philosophies, and maintaining our individuality in the face of motherhood. There is no destination for this journey but we can certainly enjoy the landmarks we reach and celebrate the ground we’ve covered.

She believes in the power of coaching and the truth that you are more than “just a mom.” You deserve to live your best life and set that example for the next generation.

You're an empath and highly sensitive woman, drawn in a lot of different directions. Years of saying yes has you feeling overwhelmed, emotional, hypersensitive, and exhausted.

Most days you wonder how you'll balance it all, put yourself first, and feel confident and trusting in your decisions.

Your nervous system is FRIED. Anxiety much?

These are the same qualities I'll bring as your life coach, committed to you as you learn how to set healthy boundaries in your life.

Overwhelm into Focus

Hello, my name is Jody and I am here to elevate and energize you to lead and live your best life. I am an ICF PCC coach who loves to coach people to be the leader of their life and develop and own the leader they already are with confidence. My coaching background is diverse as I am a leadership, health, and life coach with specializations in Women’s leadership and communication. However, my focus is around developing leadership skills for your career, business, and life and my mission is to empower you to ‘lead your life’. Lead it, live it, love it!

I was not a natural born leader and it challenged me in many areas of my life. Interestingly I say that and yet, I was selected for committees and councils by my peers; however the skills of assertiveness, direct communication, handling conflict, executive presence, and presenting did not come naturally to me and held me back. Today, I am proud to say with confidence, I have learned all of these skills and my goal is to not let these hold anyone else back from all they can be and all they deserve in life.
My coaching combines leadership, communication, and confidence as a winning trio to support other career builders and leaders to showcase their strengths and brilliance so they will be visible and their voice will be heard to advance and grow both their career or business. If you are looking for career coaching or leadership development, I can definitely support you with your goals in these areas.
I coach entrepreneurs, leaders, and managers and the coaching work we have done together has extended beyond only career or business growth to resourcing and supporting them with ‘inner leadership’ skills of: emotional resilience, stress management, mental health self care, time and energy management, and peak performance. My extensive experience in health and wellbeing, 20 years and counting, along with education and certifications in a variety of disciplines including mental health has equipped me to support people through their most challenging times to inner peace.
Lastly, if you want to improve your communication skills or facilitate conversations that connect with others, build trust, and ensure psychological safety working with and leading others, then C-IQ communication coaching may be for you. I am a C-IQ certified coach and it is the neuroscience of communication, an evidence based practice with valuable tools to bring people and teams together with effective communication skills.

ANSWER THIS QUESTION: WHAT BRINGS YOU JOY?

I’m Robin and I help depleted givers discover joy. You’ll hear my story later, but… could this be yours?

You are a GIVER: Busy, involved, committed. Your life feels complete. You have important people and situations to pour your heart into. But you have been giving so much to so many, you are depleted. You want to feel joy and excitement, but you are overscheduled. Joy isn’t even on your list. Answering the question of “what brings me joy” stumps you at first. You’re not sure if it’s ok to ask for more. Your life is full and should feel very rewarding. You worry that if you want to seek joy for yourself, you will appear selfish or ungrateful.

You admit you can’t stay depleted forever. You want to have a full bucket so you have something to share. This is what really matters to you. You could be more helpful to others if you had more within.

And, if you are honest, you want to have a full bucket for you. You want to have energy, zest, spontaneous adventures and fun. You want to feel great about your life, the whole thing, even the self-care part… the part that always comes last, if it comes at all.

Spare time is nonexistent, and you don’t believe you should slow down to focus on yourself. You don’t want to give anything up, but you recognize that if you had the time, things would be different. You would add in some of the things that used to make your heart sing, things that used to make you feel most alive.

Life is full, life is busy, yet your deepest fear is that this is all there is.

Sound familiar?

I’VE BEEN THERE AND IT ISN'T FUN

I was last on my own lists. Who am I kidding, my name never even made it onto the page. I love being a giver. The world is hurting and I can do something about it. All of my endeavors have involved giving: Contributing to a marriage, being actively involved in the lives of our two children, running a nutrition counseling practice for those with eating disorders, building a youth ministry program, providing life enrichment for senior citizens in care homes.

To me, giving is as natural as breathing.

But giving to myself… that’s another story.

I rarely factored myself into any of the above. I did not want to address my own needs. I didn’t think there was time. And I believed it was selfish. My thought was, “I am selfless, I am here for others!” I ignored multiple warnings from loved ones. You know, “You have to take care of yourself if you want to be able to take care of anyone else.” I thought they were wrong, that I am not like other people. I am a giver.

Then it happened… I ran myself into the ground. It all came to a screeching halt. I crashed and burned.

I became apathetic – me! – I didn’t care.

I did NOT care.

You know those stories of people who survived their own deaths? I could relate. I felt like I had flatlined. Let me say, it was scary, uncharted territory, and I did not like being there. My bucket was empty and I could no longer give.

I did not know that seeking joy for myself could have prevented this. I had been a happy person, living the life I wanted. But happiness and joy are different. I had neglected my own personal joy for so long– never addressing what brings ME joy. It was all about bringing OTHERS joy - and I had mountains of inner work to do as a result.

I got professional help. It took so much time out of my schedule. I missed 6 weeks of work. I could not face the fact that I didn’t care about work, so I didn’t go in. I didn’t get paid. I felt like such a failure. I learned that I had become depressed because I had not been meeting my own basic needs. For the first time, I thought, “What in the heck do I NEED?”

I realized that one of my greatest sources of joy was self-care and I was no longer going to ignore my needs.

BEAUTY FROM THE ASHES

I now try to prioritize my needs because of the joy it gives me. It feels great! I still love reaching out to others, I just remember to reach out to myself.

When my personal joy bucket is full, I have so much to give. THE TRUTH IS, WHEN I AM JOYFUL, I HAVE EVEN MORE TO GIVE THAN I EVER HAD BEFORE! I would love to help you add joy to your life before it’s too late, before you have nothing to give. Let’s figure out what brings YOU joy. Let’s fill YOUR joy bucket together and watch it overflow!

Here is the beautiful thing that must not be overlooked: Seeking joy is not selfish! It’s the exact opposite, because joy is contagious! It’s impossible to fill your joy bucket without it spilling over. Simply put, joy coaching is like a “buy one, get a load free” investment.

JOY COACHING IS A THING BECAUSE I SAID SO

I had never heard of a joy coach, but that didn’t matter. I knew that I could help depleted givers add joy to their lives, so I took a leap of faith and got the training and certification I needed. My clients have LOVED adding joy to their lives! Every one of them has had a different answer to the “what brings you joy” question. Some find it in adventure, some find it in stronger relationships, others find it in improving their health, adopting quiet time, strengthening their faith, or finding a career they love.

JOY WITH YOUR CHILDREN: A working mom wanted a closer relationship with her son. Through joy coaching, she learned that she really didn’t know his interests, so she asked him questions to feel better connected. They discovered they both enjoy some of the same music and began attending concerts together. They now share songs and discuss the impact of the music on their lives. She is overjoyed at knowing her son on a deeper level!

JOY WITH YOUR SWEETHEART: An author was having trouble with his marriage. He and his wife were living on separate continents and she wouldn’t open his messages or take his calls. Through joy coaching, he realized knowing God brings him joy. As he spent more time deepening his relationship with God, it changed his thinking. He viewed his marriage differently. He wrote his wife a 10-page love letter from his new-found perspective and she opened it. They are now eagerly waiting to be reunited.

JOY AT ANY SIZE: A budding entrepreneur wanted to have confidence in her body and start dating. Joy coaching helped her discover that dancing makes her feel alive. She began to incorporate dance breaks as rewards into her workday. She loved the feel of the dance breaks and extended them. Without even trying, she began to love her body. She has since begun meeting new people.

WHAT ABOUT YOU?

What’s your story?

You must be a giver or you wouldn’t have made it to the end.

Be honest, are you feeling depleted? Did you know that adding joy on a personal level can keep your bucket from running empty and add richness that can be shared?

And, the big question: What brings you joy? I can help you answer the big question, and I can help you obtain whatever it is that brings you joy. My hope is that joy coaching can help you do what you love most: Give fully to the people and causes you care about, by also giving to yourself.

Coaching Bio:

CPC, WPCC, ICF ACC, Trauma Informed Certification

My journey to becoming a successful Polyamory and Ethical Non-Monogamy Life and Relationship Coach, began with my own personal exploration of liberating myself from traditional structures of identity and love.
Growing up in the Midwest, in a very conservative, hetero/cis white community, I was always afraid of my desires, and often confused about my identity. Because there were no examples available to me, I defaulted to an identity of straight cis girl, because that was what was expected. It wasn’t until I was grown and several years into a rocky marriage that I finally faced my truth. I had fallen in love with a woman. I was nervous to confess my desire to my then husband, but I knew that it was crucial that I did. He and I learned the hard way that hiding and denying desire can lead to destruction. Our path to recovery from his infidelity lead us to deeper communication about our urges, our fears, and ourselves. What we were discovering is that we both identified with a desire to be intimate with more than one person. So when I met this woman, I proposed what seemed like an insane idea at that time. What if we all were together? A triad. I had never even heard the word polyamorous, or knew structures like that actually existed, but my gut was telling me I wanted this, and they did too.

The reason I am so passionate about what I do, is because when I was coming to terms with my poly, queer, gender-fluid identity, there wasn’t much besides a few books. I tried traditional therapy, but their education was primarily rooted in monogamy, and even if they were familiar with non-monogamy, none of them had lived experience, or personally identified with polyamory. I felt alone, and made a million mistakes along my journey. I realized then that I wanted to take the lessons I had learned and formally educate myself so that I could be in service of others. No one should feel alone, and the particular adventure from monogamy to non-monogamy and/or polyamory can be a challenge. Facing possessiveness, insecure attachments, and even coming out to family and friends can be traumatic.

I am an advocate for your journey. I focus on strengthening the self first, so that you may build from there a place of secure attachment to your partner or partners.

I am happy to say, my then husband, is now one of two primary partners in my life. I love deeply and I am at peace. I am kitchen table poly, and our constellation of chosen family, lovers and partners continues to grow and embrace one another. I am grateful for my mistakes, and all the struggles, because it led me to my most authentic self. That is what I hope for you as well.

If you are ready to face yourself and your real truth, even if you’re not sure exactly what that is yet, then I am the coach for you.

His coaching career started with his collegiate organizational experiences, which included many hours of volunteering and developing student leadership. He implemented senior mentorship programs that allowed experienced college students to assist incoming students to become more involved as a leader. This program included a variety of physical and mental team-building exercises that provided valuable interpersonal skills. These skills enhanced students overall college experience by allowing them to take on more leadership roles throughout their academic career.

Dat’s training materials are drawn from real-life experiences with student leadership groups across the nation to increase competitive team growth. As a result, these student leaders improved their public speaking, set purposeful goals, and maintained a rhythm of accountability.

Over the years, the passion to perform motivational speeches ignited Dat to share his experiences about transitioning into a career and maintaining success as a leader.

Dat relates to his audience powerfully by sharing his own first-hand experiences. The inspirational stories he shares enabled others to start living more confidently by recognizing any negative thoughts and “not allowing them to freeload in his mind” (as heard in his motivational speeches). Accomplishing such mental discipline and self-care is not an overnight process; rather, it takes a strong coach and player to build consistent muscle memory. Dat thrives in an environment that empowers growth in his clients. “It is all about moving one yard at a time to the endzone.”.

Coaching Bio:

If you are feeling at loose ends, not sure of what’s next, or if what you are doing is how you should be spending your time, it may be that you are not attuned to your purpose. I can help.

It’s sometimes hard to understand where the concept of purpose fits in the grand scheme of things. You’ve put in the effort, care, and time to get to where you are. You’ve listened to what’s needed and checked the boxes as you’ve achieved the things that make for a good and successful life. And yet here you are feeling a bit flat and uninspired and wondering why and what’s missing, or even if this is all there is. You may even be questioning why you aren’t satisfied.

I understand this place. I have visited this uncomfortable state more than once. Disorganized questioning thoughts, a touch of anger, and a nice dose of shame would always join me on the trip. How could I doubt what I had was fulfilling? “Shame on you/me!” would be the theme song for the journey. I wish I could tell you that it took me one cycle and I had it all figured out. I didn’t. I struggled uncomfortably, made it partially through then allowed my life and work commitments to take over, or most painfully, I stayed put and tried to stifle the call from within.

Eventually, I figured out how to move through this phase with some grace. And while I would love to share with you the secret easy shortcut, it simply doesn't exist. But, when you make it through, the payoff can be fantastic. Many find all aspects of their lives start to synchronize, become clearer, and more harmonious.

I create a calm, centered environment for clients to explore and discover their passions and engage in the art of the possible. Sessions are marked with laughter and deep engagement and compassionate support as you create the foundation for finding what is calling you, exploring the path forward, and fulfilling your purpose.

Coaching Bio:

Ten years ago,

I was a lawyer with my own practice. I had everything going for me: professional goals accomplished, happily married to the man I love, leading a balanced life with healthy food, sports, vacations, you name it.

My Cartesian mind was telling me that everything was under control, that I had ticked all the boxes and that it would be foolish to change a thing.

Then, life hit me.

At age 38, my body was attacked aggressively by an autoimmune disease. The symptoms were so severe that I could not go to work. Even worse, I could not do even the simplest tasks due to fatigue - making a cup of tea could take all my morning energy from me. I was incapacitated… Treatment was not working the way it should, and I almost lost hope that my body would ever restore to health. I was at my wits end. I was desperate…

All I could do, confined in my house, was think:
“Why did I have all these health problems? Why did I worry about everything that might (or might not) happen to a point that my body crushed? Why had I not realised that I had always been stressed, tired, and anxious? If everything was under control, why did I feel lost and overwhelmed by my emotions?”
“Why me? All I ever wanted was to reap the fruit of my hard work and be able to enjoy my happiness and my success. All I ever wanted was inner peace. After all, I had accomplished every goal I had set for myself. I had done everything I was expected to do.”
Tired morally and physically, I heard a quiet, calm but assertive voice that said:

"Do Yoga."

I was surprised by the certainty of that voice, but I was willing to try anything that would bring back my well-being. What I did not realise right away was that this voice had a wisdom of its own. It led me on a healing journey that started from something that I was relatively familiar with - yoga.
Attending local yoga classes relieved me of my stress and helped my body’s renewal. My yoga teacher and I soon became friends, and she recommended I try reflexology. One thing led to another and my reflexologist introduced me to a reputable energy healer.
I could understand the benefits (and the “science”) of yoga and reflexology, but I remained skeptical when it came to alternative healing methods. Nevertheless, out of curiosity and trust, I decided to meet with this energy healer. To my surprise and delight, her therapeutic channeling worked for me.

My healing begins.

During the session, I was deeply moved by the healer’s wisdom and capability to see above and beyond the surface. She reminded me of my innate sensitivity and said: “Stop running away from who you are, and you will get better. Follow the wisdom of your inner self, and you will forever remain healthy.”
After the session, I rediscovered my sensitivity, which I had had since my early childhood, and I could “see, hear and feel” again. At the beginning, it was overwhelming. It was as if I had been struck by lightning. The experience brought me back in touch with my inner wisdom and enhanced my capability to hear my inner voice. Thankfully, the energy healer taught me techniques to manage my energy sensitivity and trained me in putting it to good use, that is, she taught me how to do therapeutic channeling.

The Epiphany

This “epiphany” that helped me rediscover my true gift and inner compass has led me to a series of changes thereafter. I practice being in tune with my inner voice at all times and I know that my inner wisdom is aligning me with the will of the universe. I started “bumping into” the right people, experiences and opportunities. One could say that all this was nothing more than “coincidence” but, in fact, it was synchronicity... That’s only part of the magic that happens when we ignore “distractions” and we start to turn within. Following my curiosity and inner voice, I discovered and trained in Reiki, Hypnotherapy, the Enneagram and Whole Person Coaching. I also taught myself to use divining rods so as to do energy evaluations of people and places, which helps me to better understand my clients’ energy needs before healing and balancing them.

A blessing in disguise.

It was only when I hit rock bottom, that I came to realise that there had always been two voices guiding me. One was the voice of my logic, the loud and demanding one that led me to the ultimate deterioration of my well-being. And the other one, that of my inner wisdom - a soft, quiet but powerful voice that always proves to be right; the one that has my best interest in mind;the one that is forever aligned with my life’s mission. A voice that has always been there, but that was ignored and sacrificed at the altar of social convention and family expectations. A voice that makes me feel whole when I listen to it. The voice of love, wisdom and inner peace.
I learnt that for me to hear that voice I had to quieten all the mind chattering, to make time for silence and just listen. Since I had never taken the time to stop and listen to my body and get in touch with my emotions, my body fell ill and forced me to sit tight and listen to its wisdom.

Reborn with a mission.

Since then, I have been healthy and medicine free, I have more love to give myself and others, and the relationships in my life have become better than ever. After years of training and experimenting with my gifts, I have created my own method of well-being, i-Ki Coaching, and I’m blessed to work with people from all over the world. I write books, and I travel the world for talks, workshops, trainings, presentations and sessions.
My mission is to help you to discover, trust and listen to your own inner, innate wisdom and be guided from within. With this skill, you will learn to become more accepting, compassionate and loving towards yourself and others, you will form and sustain healthy, fulfilling and happy relationships; and ultimately, you will find and use your true gifts to fulfil your life’s mission with clarity and equanimity.
