Intrinsic Coach® Development Series (ICDS) Our mission for those whose content expertise is a critical aspect of helping people accomplish healthy results is to expand their abilities to work with the part of healthy behavior change that knowledge, information, and skills, alone, do not reach. Learning the Intrinsic Coaching® methodology allows Health and Wellness professionals to expand their ability to work with the whole person. Intrinsic Coaching® enables people to think better about choices as they work to accomplish important outcomes giving the health and wellness professional a more effective, productive, and satisfying way of working with people. Upon completion of this Series, participants will be able to elicit people's best thinking, including their own, so their clients (and themselves) can accomplish important outcomes. This course contains the foundational philosophy, attitudes and skills of Intrinsic Coaching®. It addresses 1-1 coaching, group and team coaching, and an Intrinsic Coaching® approach to any activity where people are wanting better results thus impacting health and productivity. Highly interactive, the ICDS enables people to integrate the Intrinsic Coaching® methodology into their daily interactions at work and also bring its benefits beyond the conversation. It’s based on eliciting best thinking, especially by increasing intrinsic thinking, not trying even harder to motivate or get things done with people.
