Closing 2018, Certifying CARE-Ready Life Coaches at Sound Community Solutions

Giving words of gratitude and appreciation to the new CARE-Ready Life Coaches

Pennsylvania, USA ---Community Life Coaches, Chris and Carol Green, concluded the year of 2018 by commissioning seven CARE-Ready Life Coaches at Sound Community Solutions, Inc. Also known as SCS, this human service organization was founded by Mr. Vladimir Beaufils (pronounced Bo - fees), who found himself in Harrisburg, PA in 1993, where he started a miraculous journey in the world of human service. He founded SCS and has since produced an army of mentors who help others who, like him, are ex-offenders or recovering addicts.

Beaufils and SCS brought the Greens on board to train seven staffers and mentors in their accredited CARE-Ready Coaching program. The sessions started in the final week of October and concluded tonight with the prospective coaches each making an oral presentation, revealing how the program had impacted them.

"My mission statement is: Focus to succeed, guiding others toward the light," Vladimir expressed to Chris and Carol Green. "You helped me to be able to do that; able to define that. You gave me new tools and refined the tools that I already had; and you gave me structure and organization. You helped me to cross the t's and dot the i's. Life Coaching will help anyone, in any place, at anytime; and you guys are amazing!"

As affiliate members and International Statesmen with iChange Nations™, Chris and Carol Green have partnered with United Graduate College and Seminary International to offer an accelerated, ministry-accredited life coaching certification program. Their collaborative purpose and mission has been, to offer leaders, working in under-served communities, high-quality tools that empower and equip them to be more effective in their humanitarian efforts.

Comments from some of the newly commissioned life coaches included:

Edith Cook: "I've been in the human service field about 18 years and what this Life Coaching class has done for me is to allow me to pace myself, have patience for my clients. You gave me tools to utilize that will help me to stay in line, so that I can be patient, so that the client's breakthrough can be more rewarding."

Carol Dibetteto: "I enjoyed this course. There were a lot of wow-factors for me. I look forward to moving into 2019 with these new sets of tools, and working with people. Thank you for bringing this to us."

Doug Hollis: "I was most impacted by the Foundational Belief system upon which this Life Coaching Program was built.

Karen Thomas: "It's been a pleasure and a blessing to be part of this certificate life coaching program, grounded in Biblical principles. I'm shifting into the position in how to approach different situations, thanks to this course. The most impactful part was the definition of life coach, because it tells me that I don't have to have all the answers in order to help someone else."

Henry Wimbush: "I learned that Life Coaching is about getting an understanding. I was most impacted by the session "A Different View of People" because it talked about being committed to people, their process and their purpose. I was also impacted by the illustration that fallen and unfruitful vines are actually lifted up. You gave me a tool kit to help me do my job better."

At the conclusion of the presentations, the Greens officially commissioned each new life coach.

As the world's leading producers of CARE-Ready Coaches™, Chris and Carol Green teach and train community, government and education leaders, human service organizers, business visionaries, and neighborhood dreamers how to be much more effective by embracing the principles of CARE (Compassionate Accountability with Respect and Empathy) in their professional and personal lives. They LISTEN to people, LIFT people and LAUNCH people. Then they equip and empower them to do the same for others.

Many coaching, mentoring and community outreach programs employ what is known as a "deficit model" of working with people. That's where you focus on the problems (deficits) of a person, and then apply a set of pre-determined, cookie cutter steps and treatments to address their issues. The deficit-based model is what many well-meaning Helpers use, but it rarely works long-term, leaving Helpers wondering why their clients fail to break the cycles of addiction and recidivism.

However, CARE-Ready Coaching™ mirrors the principles found in the proven, Best Practice strategies of Strength-based, Solution-focused models. CARE-Ready coaches are trained to connect with people in order to build a relationship/ partnership that empowers the client; thus allowing the client to discover the solutions that will work best for them.

Also, while many coaching programs focus on how to target potential high-paying affluent clients, and high-paying speaking opportunities, the Greens train, equip and empower Care-Ready Providers and Coaches™, who are willing to take on the most often overlooked people of society; those who live in under-served communities, who can least afford, but benefit the most from professional guidance.
