5.5.5 Coaching Skills Training Program™

Learn to coach like professional coaches without the cost of a certification.

To effectively lead people to positive change...

Ask, Don't Tell.

Think back to the last few times where well-meaning friends or family offered you advice on problems.

What did you think of their advice? How often did you already know the advice they offered? How often did you actually take their advice? What were some of your feelings around them giving you advice? Did they understand the complexity of what you were facing?

It is a fact, based on neuroscience, that most people don't actually learn or grow from other people offering them solutions. On top of that, most people don't want to be told what to do.  At the same time, we are hard wired to think we can fix other people's problems or help move them into the direction they should be in... what a challenge!!!

For many years, we have been taught leadership meant telling people what to do. Times are changing though and brain science tells us that the foundation of great leadership is Ask, Don't Tell. As leaders, we want to uplift, we want to empower others to do their tasks well so it frees us up to lead more effectively.

This is why coaching is a fundamental skill that all leaders must have. If you want to lead a business, a team, a community, individuals or even a family...   coaching is a must-have skill!

Why is learning coaching skills important?

The global coaching industry is currently a multi-billion-dollar market and growing. The coaching industry will continue to grow because there is a demand for emergence and self-directed growth in an ever evolving and sometimes confusing world.

We are moving away from a leadership style of telling and controlling to a dialogue that generates more sustainable behaviorial shifts and growth in those around us. Coaches are needed in this world! Coaches can go through certification training approved by the International Coaching Federation (ICF) which holds a standards for ethics, quality, exams and professional training.

But there is good and bad news... there are no regulations when it comes to coaching. By that I mean, there's no legal requirements to get training or any testing to be a coach. Because of that,  the bad news is that there are multitudes of 'coaches' out there that are not trained with 'coaching' skills. They may be experts in their field but not experts for the emergence of an individual. And many of these untrained coaches are happy to sell you on your dream. They may even really want to help you as they may be great mentors, trainers but they are not coaches. This can give coaching a really bad name because many people who call themselves "coaches" don't know what they are doing is not coaching. And there may be many coaches out there that want the training to help others but simply can not afford the cost of certification -- which runs around $3k to $15k to go through.

If you are on this page, you likely are interested in coaching because you want to help someone - this could be for your business, your team, your company, your friend or family member. The good news is anyone can learn coaching skills without it costing a lot. Coaching is a skill and this 5.5.5 Coaching Skills Training Program™ is about learning that skill - how to help others emerge and become the best version of themselves without bringing in our own 'stuff'. This program is about helping others succeed in achieving what they want in life.

And if you are one of those coaches I mentioned before that have a coaching business and never got trained to learn coaching skills, know that learning how to coach from this 5.5.5 Coaching Skills Training Program™  saves you money from costly certifications AND helps with client retention. Knowing how to effectively coach your clients could be the difference between whether someone works with you one time or consistently refers you business.

Coaching: What is it. What it is not.

To simplify what coaching is: it is a process of helping another person to reach their personal and/or professional potential.

 The foundation of coaching is based on helping another make significant and lasting changes. That often includes helping another clarify goals, create strategic actions, commit to improved habits, and hit targeted results faster than doing it on your own. A coach can also be an accountability and encouragement partner.  
It’s important to know the difference between a coach, mentor, teacher, therapist, guide and consultant because they all do different things. In this 5.5.5 Coaching Skills Training program, we talk about the differences of each and how coaching is unique and powerful. A professionally trained coach can know nothing about your life or business and still effectively coach you. However, as soon as a coach starts telling you what to do, make action plans for you, they are no longer acting as a coach. Rather in those cases, they may be consulting or mentoring.

Who can benefit from learning this 5.5.5 Coaching Skills Training Program™ with me? 

Well, anyone! YOU can benefit from learning these skills… imagine a world where everyone you met was empowering, believed in you and can hold space for anything you were going through. Imagine this person was a phone call or text message away when you needed them… that’s what learning how to coach can do for this world. Imagine growing up in a family where you felt completely supported, seen, heard and understood. Or working for someone that you knew was on your side and ready to promote you. How motivated would you be to work for that person? Or a silent business partner that you can reach out to bounce ideas off and mastermind with. That’s what coaches do for others.

If you want to start a coaching business or already have a business, adding coaching can increase your bottom line. Coaching is a service. You can get paid for this service, just as a physiotherapist or doctor gets paid for their time, such is the same for a coach with your expertise. You can also use coaching for your team or employees to draw out what’s best in them and also help them through obstacles they may be facing within the business. Coaching can also be used in any sales or client focused interactions. And though I stressed on "ask, don't tell" in a leadership role, I will show you how to guide and lead in a way that creates synergy, builds on cooperation and collaboration towards unified goals.

I coach people to consciously flow into profitable, purpose-driven businesses. I also teach my clients how to coach so they can add the service of coaching as a higher priced offering.

What’s going on in the coaching world?
Do you need a Certification to start coaching?

For starters, NO, you don’t need a certification to start a coaching practice. There are tons of uncertified coaches that have successful practices and businesses.

Right now, there is a large influx of Coaching Certification courses. Coach Training programs run the range between $3,000 to $15,000. If it’s a certification you are looking for, then google search the type of certification you’re looking to find out more. Are you interested in life coaching? or business coaching?  Or specialized coaching? Do your research and make sure you go through certification  or programs like this 5.5.5 Coaching Skills program™ that are approved by the International Coaching Federation (ICF) which holds standards for ethics, quality, exams and professional training.

Who am I to teach you how to coach.

Hi, my name is Lucia, the coach trainer for this program and I love systems and strategies!!

As a kid growing up in North America, ‘Coaching’ was something I did naturally, way before ‘coaching’ was a thing. I had no idea that's what it was or how I was doing it... yet, other kids gravitated to me naturally to tell me their problems and get solutions. The only problem was there were too many people telling me their problems, I felt I had to STOP doing what I did naturally. That is, until, I was properly taught how to intentionally coach as a system!

 Imagine, if you could lead in a way where people naturally gravitated to you! How would you use that skill?

This 5.5.5 Coaching Skills Training Program teaches you that skill.

I am a Royal Roads University’s Certified Executive Coach since 2013. I became a Certified 5.5.5 Coach Trainer to teach more people how to coach so it was accessible to anyone!

In 2018, I became a Master Certified NLP Coach to create quick and effective change through neurolinguistics – the language we use and the connection to our senses. In 2023, I became a Certified Systems Business Coach to help purpose driven business owners stay profitable through implementing systems. As an International Coaching Federation (ICF) accredited coach, I'm constantly adding deeper levels of understanding as a coach. I fully get & "understand" the power of coaching.

Through this course, I am the facilitator and coach trainer... I use coaching to help you truly understand the material of why this skill is important and different to consulting or teaching. You learn when to best coach and when to consult, mentor, teach or perhaps when therapy might be needed. Through this LIVE course, my intention is to have you practice this simple to follow coaching model. This course is not built only on theory or consumption of more knowledge, it is action based.

Outside of coaching, I'm a mother of 3, a wife, an entrepreneur, digital business geek, a Marvel fan, and a mom of a fur child. I have an never ending thirst to learn more about life and how to grow to be better version of myself every day. I am often spending my time learning something new through books or courses.
