SolutionsAcademy

The biggest learning is that you don’t need the “why” to start moving toward a solution. I know have a framework that I can always go back on with solution focused coaching. I feel a lot calmer now when I enter into session. I really enjoyed the time together! My main learning is that we all need feedback: in the session, in the peer-groups and in the mentoring. I am going to miss Monday mornings!

I could take this class because it fit with my family life. I gained a lot of coaching experience, and a lot of knowledge. I did not think I could take an online course and take it to the end, but the course was so exciting that I am not sure that there is much else to gain from a face to face course. I totally loved the sessions and I would highly recommend it!

I have really enjoyed this class! What I enjoyed most is the diverse and inclusive environment that you have created. You grow and gain an international network which allows you to increase your business potential. It’s also increased my awareness as to why you need PROFESSIONAL coaching skills and it has given me those skills!

2019 Coach Training Group

Coach, Consultant, HR, various

I was really amazed by the level of relationships that were built by this group. I feel totally connected to everybody out there. I enrolled because I wanted an ICF certification and I certainly got all I need for that, but I got so much more: honing my 1 to 1 coaching practice, developing my skills in coaching teams and organizations. I always was a bit scared of conflict situations: now I look forward to them!

I travel around the world and all I need now is internet access or a phone line to join in and participate. If I want to review and study, I can go to the backend and review the sessions. What I truly love is the field of international peers that I meet!

It has been very valuable having the coaching toolset also for teaching. Using Solution Focused Coaching really helps get to a result with the children because it is really driven by “what are we going to do next”. I am now combining it with yoga — there are a lot of synergies. 

Katja Saldanha

Teacher and Coach

I was attracted by SolutionsAcademy coach training because of the regularity: It allows for so much more development in my thinking about the material. I like having a small group of 12 people — you feel like people know you. I have been really impressed by the international bunch of people that attended and the international guest trainers. There are elements of different cultures! I love not having to travel. I was skeptical at first about it being online, but I was amazed at how many visual clues you actually pick up. We have a lot of fun and get a lot of great input.

Graham Thomsen

Teacher and Coach

I work with a solution focused approach now. In order to be effective in my job, working with disabled people, I took the course to learn the subtle nuances of the approach. I understood that it is best for the coach to use simple 5$ words and not use words that are hard to understand.

I joined Kirsten’s program especially because I wanted to improve my coaching. I would really recommend her program because it gives you insights and new ideas on how to approach work with teams and also organizations.

Kirsten vermochte es im Mentorcoaching auf erfrischend-leichte und gleichzeitig herausfordernde Art, den Mindset hinter dem MCC nachvollziehbar, zugänglich und somit für meine Coachpraxis verfügbar zu machen. So wurden Kirstens „words of Coaching wisdom“ gleichzeitig Ansporn und innerer Kompass für zukünftige Coachinggespräche auf diesem besonderen Level. Eine wirklich inspirierende und bereichernde Erfahrung für mich und meine sich erweiternde Identität als Coach. In this mentorcoaching Kirsten was able to make the mindset behind the MCC comprehensible, accessible and thus available for my coaching practice in a refreshingly easy and at the same time challenging way for my being as a coach.

A truly inspiring and enriching experience for me and my expanding identity as a coach

I had the great pleasure of working with Kirsten as a mentor for the ICF MCC certification process. I learned a lot from her crystal clear, accurate feedback, as well as from her extremely useful and helpful tips. And there was her material treasure chest, into which she let me look generously. I always looked forward to our next session, to the appreciative atmosphere, spiced with Kirsten’s dry humor. Ich hatte das große Vergnügen, mit Kirsten als Mentorin für den ICF MCC Zertifizierungsprozess zu arbeiten. Durch ihr kristallklares, auf den Punkt genaues Feedback habe ich viel gelernt, auch durch ihre äußerst nützlichen und hilfreichen Tipps.
