Pennsylvania, USA --- With the commissioning of their latest CARE-Ready coach certification class, which was hosted by Pat and Nathaniel Gadsden of Life Esteem, Inc, Chris and Carol Green reached another milestone. Since initiating their cutting-edge life coach training in 2018, they have now certified and launched 50 CARE-Ready Coaches. To date, C and C Connections has certified 48 coaches through its classroom sessions, along with two additional certifications for its distance-learning coaching students.

"We were extremely honored when the Life Esteem team made the decision to go through our life coach certification program," commented Chris Green. "They are highly respected in this region and they brought together some of the most highly-qualified human service leaders in this community. The dynamics in our weekly two-hour training sessions were absolutely amazing."

After working through five weeks (10 hours) of instruction, homework, and group discussions, the newest CARE-Ready Life Coaches successfully passed an online exam, submitted their personalized life coaching field manuals, and made oral presentations to express how they were each going to meet the challenges of implementing their coaching models in the community.

"We learned so much from this powerful group of human service experts," Carol Green revealed. "Any one of them could have facilitated this class, based on their years of experience and education, but they were each willing to display intellectual humility and receive different or expanded perspectives on how to connect with people. They were willing to receive more in their tool kits."

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 the student's Course Evaluation included:
  • "Absolutely excellent and professional course taught by an inspirational couple."
  • "This was amazing and life changing. Very impactful and valuable tools and resources to use in the future; not just for my clients, but for myself."
  • "This course was very informative and educational. Excellent!"
  • 'Enjoyed this class. Looking forward to connecting others to this training."
  • "Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge and expertise with us. I know this is a work in progress for me."
  • "I highly recommend this training!"
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.
