CEO, International Coach Academy
Last week Merci Miglino and I hosted calls with 6 of our amazing coaches to celebrate International Coaching Week. We covered a range of topics and the coaches shared freely on topics such as – How they came to coaching / How they chose their niche or specialty / How they chose their client group, how they attract clients and more.
Listen to the Audio Interview with Robyn Logan
Sarah was originally from Montreal and now lives in Alberta, Canada. Sarah came to coaching after working for 14 years as an Interior designer. She would often notice in her work that more often than not, an “outside” change was not fully what her clients were after. Sometimes a new paint job or new furniture didn’t quite cut it. The change they were looking for was an “inside” one.
After graduating from ICA Sarah set up Pure Simple Change and now works with visionary women who want to unlock their greatness.
Ange is from Australia and at the time of this recording was working in a remote Aboriginal community north of Brisbane. Ange came to coaching after being made redundant from a company she loved. It turns out that event was one of those life changing moments. The company paid for her to do a positive psychology course and it was during that program that she realised coaching was her next pathway. Whilst still studying as a coach Ange set up her business “OwnYourShitGirl.com” and currently coaches women who are already kicking goals but just need that little bit of help to get to the next level.
Sid is originally from India and now lives in Hong Kong, having previously worked in India, Singapore, Japan and Australia. Sid came to coaching from his experience as a client in the corporate sector. The benefit he received from coaching made him want to share and contribute to the growth and development of others. After graduating form ICA he has now blended coaching with his love of sales and is currently working as a Sales Coach.
