Pennsylvania, USA --- Professors Chris and Carol Green, the founders of the STEP Forward Life Institute™ and owners of C and C Connections, LLC, hosted their final online CARE-Ready Life Coaching® Certification graduation ceremony for 2023, in a powerful and impactful live virtual event.
The newest CARE-Ready® Life Coaches are: Karen Renee Johnson, Christine Quinn, Danelle Wolfe and Timothy Wolfe. They completed weekly coursework, submitted reflection presentations to express how they were each going to meet the challenges of implementing their unique coaching models, created personalized life coaching field manuals, and successfully passed an online exam.
"This class was incredibly motivated, hanging in there when sessions went over the time limit," the Greens observed. "They scheduled additional office appointments with us, and quickly developed comaraderie with one another."
The online ceremony featured congratulations and encouragement from Licensed Professional Counselor and National Certified Coach, Amethyst Roberson (CARE-Ready graduate of Fall 2021).
"The most important thing is to be the kind of coach that people can rely on," exhorted Counselor and Coach Roberson, speaking virtually to the new coaches. "Discover your niche and find out who you work best with; whoever you resound with and whoever you can share your heart with, reach those people. Be the mentor you needed one year ago, or perhaps the guide that you needed when you were a child trying to navigate and comprehend the world.
Be the life coach who is authentic and transparent, and be true to yourself. You don't have to be like the next life coach. There's so much in social media that can pull on you, but don't compare yourself to anyone else. Be who God has called you to be.
Show people that you are human and that you have weathered hard times. When people realize that you are genuine and sincere, they will be more inclined to trust you and open up to you.
Maybe you're going to be a pit stop, maybe you're going to be a train, or maybe you're going to be a support, or maybe you're going to be just a good listener. Some of you are going to be a launching pad for someone's life."
With the successful graduation of this class, Master Life Coaches, Chris and Carol Green have now trained and launched 109 CARE-Ready Life Coaches and 38 CARE-Ready Responders, who are disbursed and embedded in 40+ organizations, businesses, agencies or ministries across 11 states including: Alabama, California, Delaware, Georgia, Illinois, Maryland, Missouri, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania and Tennessee.
Student course survey quotes included:
"This was a fantastic experience and I did find out more about myself that I had known before. Thank you!"
"This has definitely been life changing! Care Ready Life Coaching is a hidden gem! We are so grateful that God led us to this course."
"The facilitators where very encouraging and positive. They are a power couple that know how to present and motivate a class. This has been a great experience and well worth the time and investment. I highly recommend this Life Couch Certification program for anyone with a interest to help others to reach their potential and develop in areas that can increase success in life."
The Greens, through their online institution and coaching business, partnered with United Graduate College and Seminary International (UGCSI), I Change Nations™, and Fruitful Life Network, Inc. in 2017 to offer this accelerated, ministry-accredited life coaching certification program. Their collaborative purpose and mission has always been, to equip leaders, working in under-served communities, with high-quality tools that empower them to be more effective in their humanitarian efforts.
“Congratulations to our new CARE-Ready Life Coaches," commented Chris and Carol Green, whose coaching and consulting business has served as the organizer and facilitator of the training. "This ceremony was bitter-sweet because this will be our final live training and graduation in this format for a while. Moving forward, we will offer this program exclusively as an on-demand-video course."
However, the Greens are making plans to possibly launch an annual CARE-Ready Conference in which Coaches and Responders from all over the country can meet, network, and gain more tips and tools on how to bring the CARE-Ready mindset into their fields and industries of expertise.
"We're looking to expand into more professional development for our coaches," Chris Green explains. "So keep a watch out for more exciting breaking news with CARE-Readiness."
