A couple of years ago, I searched for affordable coach certification training programs for a friend seeking specific training in empowerment coaching. I came across the Empowerment Coach Academy coaching program on the Udemy platform.
Udemy is an open online course (MOOC) provider targeted at professional adults and students. Their website is an online learning and teaching marketplace with over 155,000 courses and forty million students to date. Udemy serves its users by pulling and organizing the products and services of different providers or sellers, i.e.,instructors, and sells them on its website. Udemy can be compared to Coursera, which focuses more on university or college-type programs. Several coaching professionals, training providers take advantage of Udemy’s learning platform to reach as many people as possible, offering coaching course packages at an affordable cost. The company’s headquarters of Udemy is in San Francisco, California, with offices around the world. One thing I like about Udemy is that the courses offered on their platform are not only relatively affordable, but they also come with lifetime access to course materials. You can pretty much work at your pace; the course materials will always be there for you to access.
Understanding Empowerment Coaching
Most if not all people, at some point or the other in their professional or personal lives, desire to be empowered or motivated to do better. As a result, they go seeking ways to attain that. Some people get empowered by surrounding themselves with optimistic people and others through setting reasonable goals or objectives. There have been several empowerment figures in history who knowingly or unknowingly impacted the lives of others through their words or actions; people like Maya Angelou.
Quotes From Maya Angelou
“If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude.”
“Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better.”
What is Empowerment Coaching? It is a specialty of life coaching, and its goal is to help people more effectively navigate areas of their life that they want to see transformed for the better. An empowerment coach helps others access their inner power/strengths in order for them to see those transformations occur in their lives. Another goal of an empowerment coach is to support others in identifying and overcoming the gap in their own lives. Empowerment coaches train individuals on how to reach their authentic self, also helps them see new possibilities so that they are able to achieve their dreams or those things that bring them the utmost joy and fulfillment.
