A Time Like No Other

Changing Horizons

When the Pandemic hit Coaching in March of 2020, Mentor Agility wanted to support the Coaching community.

We offered a popular series of continuing education courses from many of our top international instructors, offering one-hour discussions of issues affecting our industry and your practice for $5. Hundreds of you participated in the program. Most courses had over 50 participants.

2020 is almost behind us. A vaccine is on the way, but challenges for our profession – and your practice – remain. Based on the input from last year, and recent inquiries from many, we’re presenting this popular series of one-hour courses, plus a few new ones – again for $5 – in January, 2021. For those of you who joined us this past year, they offer a valuable refresher and new topics to explore. For those who are new, you’ll find compelling content and have a chance to meet our unique, talented team of instructors. The course offerings are listed below and you can enroll in them individually or as a whole collection.

We look forward to seeing some of you again. And to meeting new friends in the Coaching industry.

Building a Toolkit to Help Navigate Uncertain Times

The Covid 19 pandemic creates a unique set of health challenges, resulting in both physical and mental stressors for many people. This course helps coaches work with clients to create individualized daily practices to help their clients with the challenges that can rob them of their physical, mental and spiritual vitality today and in the long term.

These daily practices can reduce stress, anxiety, boost immunity and enhance the body’s natural defenses. Adopting such daily practices as meditation, movement, disconnecting from technology and tuning out the daily news, as well as gratitude work, journaling and connecting with Nature and grounding exercises – can help your clients re-center and find their own safe-haven in this critical time on everyone’s life.

Don’t Let Your Clients Forget You

When significant disruptions – like COVID – hit your life or your clients’ lives, there’s a tendency to cut back on your communications with them. Don’t.

This webinar talks about ways to maintain your – and your brand’s – presence in your clients’ and potential clients’ minds.

Meet the Instructor: David Sollitt is a Branding and Communications consultant and coach who works with clients on advancing their mission and their success through the application of Brand science as a core element of communications.
