Online coaching is something which has been available through certain coaches for some time now, though the coaching industry has remained predominantly locked in face-to-face coaching sessions that require coaching clients to visit a coaching practice, which with the pressures of modern life can lack that convenience we have come to expect. One highly experienced coach, who has been doing coaching globally for nearly fifteen years has started a revolution in access to quality coaching online though. Through a new online coaching only service, Stephen Frost is connecting those seeking the best coaching support possible, with a highly skilled coach who can provide them that coaching they desire, without them ever needing to leave their home or office.
Who Is Stephen Frost And Why Is He So Qualified To Provide High Level Coaching?
Stephen Frost certified as a master practitioner in Neuro-Linguistic Programming, Hypnosis and Time-Line Therapy® with the Performance Partnership in 2005. He has however been coaching for much longer. Having been on leadership courses run by the Royal Air Force and British Army while a student in the UK, Stephen was consistently put in positions where he was coaching teams of people, as well as individuals, to achieve the best possible results.
After graduating with a Masters Degree in Engineering for the University of Exeter Stephen began working in sales. Again, he found himself coaching teams and individuals through achieving better results than they were commonly used to.
His first experience of personal development came in 2004 when attending a course run by David Shephard of the Performance Partnership in London. Something he was invited to by a close friend, and felt compelled to go to due to needing life change. Stephen had been involved in a life changing traffic accident in 1996 in Africa, and had found challenges in moving on from an enforced change in lifestyle. Through that first personal development course, he gained that. It opened up the world of NLP and personal development to him in a way he had never considered. It also opened up fresh ideas as to how he could help others create greater success for themselves.
In 2005, following careful thought, Stephen proceeded to progress through his NLP certifications, achieving certification initially as practitioner then master practitioner in NLP within five and a half months, far faster than most people usually certify to that level. In addition he also set up his first formal coaching practice at the same time, with a commitment to helping others achieve incredible life change, and create the life they desired.
Online Coaching Fulfilling Needs For Those Seeking Quality Coaching Yet Short On Options
One of the major limitations for people worldwide seeking coaching used to be geographical constraints. If you wanted coaching, you had to travel to see your coach, or pay them to travel to you to do coaching.
For most people this resulted in ninety minutes to two hours of travel time on average, every coaching session. Though for some people an even bigger constraint was lack of quality coaches within travel-able distance, meaning they felt unable to access that coaching they needed to break through to the next level. Something which Stephen felt was ridiculous considering existing technological solutions. In that most people happily converse with friends, family and business associates in various locations around the world using Skype, WhatsApp and Messenger, what was stopping people from having their coaching delivered that way? Realistically, the coaches themselves.
This spurred Stephen on to develop an organization purely focused on delivering high-quality coaching, to whoever needed it, wherever they desired it. Thus he established Online-Coaching.Coach stipulating that all coaches were certified as master practitioner in NLP as a minimum, and focused on delivering incredible coaching results via online coaching.
What’s The Big Fuss About Online Coaching?
Online coaching offers some serious advantages over face-to-face coaching where coaching clients have to attend coaching sessions at a specific coaching practice location. One of the core reasons Stephen decided to focus on developing a quality online coaching service for people is the aspect of freedom it brings. To that end, Stephen believes the following are potentially the five most advantageous benefits of online coaching for coaching clients.
-Online coaching brings locational freedom, wherever you are, provided you have a quality internet connection you can receive your coaching.
-Online coaching means you can access coaches from further afield, so you can get better coaching than is likely available in your local area.
-Online coaching means you can keep your coaching private, risk of being seen going for coaching is eliminated, something very advantageous for those valuing privacy.
-Online coaching provides higher feelings of safety for those feeling at risk with strangers, being able to have quality coaching remotely brings self-assurance and ease which allows much needed coaching to happen.
-Online coaching brings convenience with scheduling, because there are no practice hours to keep to, coaching sessions can be scheduled for times convenient for clients rather than coaches.
In many ways Stephen is amazed that the coaching industry has been so slow in evolving with existing technology. Though in many ways he seems quite happy about it, there is a certain smile he has when discussing this, almost knowing that he has been offered an incredible opportunity. Something which he has worked all his life to be able to seize with right timing, and having seen it he is seriously committing to it.
Without a doubt, online coaching really does offer something which has been absent from the coaching industry. That ability to gain coaching sessions with one of the world’s top coaches, because certification to master practitioner in NLP really does put coaches at that level, while remaining in your own home or office really does make online coaching a game changer. Another set of people that Stephen loves being able to help due to the advantages of online coaching are digital nomads, who previously were unable to get consistent high-quality regular coaching because of various geographical constraints, yet now can soar free and break through to higher levels of success with far greater ease.
It is very much certain, online coaching may have been a long time in coming, yet now it is here,the opportunity it brings to those wanting seriously life changing, or business transforming, coaching have been handed a silver platter of incredible opportunity. Those with some level of insight, and understanding of the opportunity, are seizing what online coaching has to offer with both hands, and riding it hard through to success. And with help from top coaches like Stephen Frost, those committing to online coaching are in for an incredible ride to success.
