Creativity Coaching Certificate

Creativity is the quintessential quality that all clients want but few identify as being when they enter into coaching. More than just producing art, creativity begins with solving problems. Creativity is a birthright that every client has but does not identify with because so many of us have received self-defeating messages that we adopt without realizing it.

In this course trainees will learn the magical world of storytelling in coaching from Master Storyteller John Bucher and Julie Elledge. Learn an approach that will enchant your clients, just as master of metaphor and symbolism John will charm you. You will learn how to dial into clients language and interest to explore clients thinking and emotions. Watch how this approach spills into every aspect of clients’ lives. Researchers Layoff and Johnson write in the seminole book, Metaphors We Live By, “It is reasonable enough to assume that words alone don’t change reality. But changes in our conceptual system do change what is real for us and affect how we perceive the world and act upon those perceptions.” Experience the power of metaphor to reframe self-defeating thinking and inspire positive shifts in clients’ energy and emotion.

Creativity coaching is highly sought after in both life and business coaching. In the four hour self-paced course work by Dr. Sherry Yellin, trainees will walk through a step-by-step process to get in touch with their potential clients. They will understand how to design their coaching with respect to how the brain perceives threat and at the same time create the WOW factor.

Ecosystems of the Mind: Building a Better Story

From master storyteller John Bucher  and coach Julie Elledge comes a paradigm disruptor. The work-life balance metaphor was born in a different century and has outlived its usefulness. Influenced by technology, today’s work environments are increasingly complex, with 24/7 operations, remote workplaces, and instant gratification culture on the rise. Leading to feelings of intense pressure and lack of time, these environments blur the lines of work and home. 

The outdated work-life balance metaphor promotes a version of reality based on unrealistic, quick fix solutions that leave clients feeling guilty, empty and unmotivated when they don’t get the balance just right. 

Ecosystems of the Mind is a two course series, exclusive to Mentor Agility that explores metaphor and answers the call for a wider and more comprehensive framework for a holistic life. 

In Building A Better Story, coaches will explore various symbols of nature in pathways to meaning. Coaches will learn how to guide clients in mapping out their own personal ecosystems, reframing their approach in managing stress, work, and life. This course focuses on understanding how the various elements in a client’s ecosystem work holistically together in their life.

Course Objectives

  • Set a context for powerful conversations that facilitate clients ability to move between the big picture of where the client is heading and where to client wishes to go
  • Promote clients self-discipline without proving resistance using storytelling
  • Develop a specific plan with related time frames and intended priorities
  • Develop clients ability to make decisions, address key concerns and the ability to reflect on and learn from experiences
