Drive Lasting Results with GAPS – the iNLP Center’s Unique and Proven Coaching Model for Executive Clients

Our Executive Coach training explores the 3-part relationship of the Executive, the Team, and the Organization. Using NLP tools and coaching, you will support the executive client through their discovery of strengths, weaknesses, and most importantly solutions in their team, organization, and within themselves.

With the complexity of executive coaching situations and client roles, it is not surprising that there is no ‘one size fits all’ model of the coaching process that would adequately cover the myriad of possible scenarios that an Executive Coach could face. Because of this, you will learn the iNLP Center Executive Coaching GAPS model, which broadens this focus to include the needs and goals of both the executive, the Team, and the Organization.

Using GAPS (Generated Areas for Purposeful Strategy), you will acquire a targeted perspective of where your client’s resources should be directed. Our GAPS Assessment Tool will clarify the coaching focus as well as assess future progress to challenge your client to expand their own perspective of the 3-part relationship between themselves, their team, and the organization.

This self-paced Executive Coaching Certification training will challenge, stretch, and grow your abilities as a coach to build both competence as well as confidence.

“A Game-Changer for Anyone Working in a Corporate Environment”

“While working in HR, I spend much time coaching managers and counseling employees. I knew I needed more than the life coaching certification to be fully effective in a corporate environment to assist the executives and managers. The Executive Coaching training is an excellent supplement to the life coaching certification. The program levels up where the life coaching leaves off and provides a valuable assessment tool that shows the impact in ten different key areas of leadership that impact performance and employee engagement on a team and the organization. This program is a game-changer for anyone who is currently working in a corporate environment or intends to in the near future.”
