    I attended this program to gather some coaching skills to assist me with developing and running a sustainability leaders course. During the program I learned a lot about transformation and skills and tools that I can begin to learn to use with leaders. I learned a lot more than I thought I would. It was excellent.  As a result I feel more confident that I can design a great leaders program and even begin coaching people one on one immediately to further strengthen my abilities  .I especially loved the tools that worked at a deeper level, such as metaphor. I also enjoyed learning about what is happening in the psychology of people to bring about transformation.

    A Full iWAM Consultant Accreditation
    is included in this qualification

    An accreditation in this profiling instrument normally retails at $3,000 in Australia.  

    • Learn the 48 patterns that make your unique motivational fingerprint
    • Understand what will create passion and energy in your work
    • Gain insight into how you are creating your current results
    • Understand what key development areas will bring breakthroughs in your results
    • ​Practical exercises to help recognise and validate the metaprograms in language patterns
    • iWAM Test Design: Statistics, Standard Groups, and Culture
    • ​Introduction and experience in using the iWAM Reports: Individual, Paired and TeamReports
    • Skill building exercises in interpreting and delivering individual debriefs using the iWAMinstrument.

    The iWAM measures 48 thinking styles or meta programs in the context of work. It is an online, easy to use and administer questionnaire that provides an objective way to measure an Individual’s or team’s motivational patterns, evidenced in specific attitudes and behaviours in the workplace. The iWAM does not ‘box’ or categorise people, and as a result is incredibly accurate. Based in Cognitive Science, rather than Personality Theory, the iWAM offers a framework that is ‘coachable’ - that is, clients are able to create change if their current Attitudes and Motivational Patterns are not working for them. This instrument is used internationally in coaching, team building, talent management,recruitment, outplacement, or leadership development. The Inventory for Work Attitude & Motivation (iWAM) is a groundbreaking instrument, rigorously tested through academic research and corporate settings and found to offer a high level of reliability and validity (r= 0.89).

    I attended this program to develop and learn skills to realise my dream of being a coach! I now know what I didn’t know! I’ve learnt so many valuable tools and techniques that will allow me to create transformational experiences for others. And as a result I am ready to step up to my coaching practice! The coach training offered by The Inspiration Factory was so much more than I ever expected. Grace has been an incredible trainer and facilitator – so calm and gentle with us all as we learn. I find it so valuable being able to practice each technique as we go, to start embedding them in my unconscious. Doing the course was as an intensive in Bali made all the difference – having such focus and really getting to know the group. We’ve now created a strong support network for each other as we step forward!

    Fran Berry

    I have been coaching and conducting coaching training programs for over 15 years, and I am absolutely astounded by the experience I have had during this program. Over the years, I have attended more than 30 “coaching” programs. With each program, I have been pleased with the idea that I have taken at least one new idea or learning from the time and money invested. I entered this program with the same thought in my mind: ‘If I get one or two new things, I’ll be happy’. Boy was I in for a surprise!

    The challenge I have now is to describe to you, the reader, exactly what it was that I came away with that was so new and so different, and so incredibly wonderful. Philosophically, the approach is the same – but the techniques and ways of being are magically unique to this program. So instead of speaking about the specific tools and techniques – let me talk about the most important thing – the results!

    I used to get great results with my coaching processes. Now, I get astounding and life-changing results that go WAY beyond the realm of basic skill and knowledge improvement. Would I recommend this course to anyone who wants to BECOME a coach – YES! Would I recommend this course to anyone who wants to become a BETTER coach – ABSOLUTELY!

    What More Could You Ask For in a Coaching Course?

    Support after you Graduate!

    Many people find it hard to ever see a demonstration of coaching again after graduating from their Coaching course.  In the first year of professional practice, it is particularly useful to also have practice that reinforces your learnings.

    I offer Graduates an Monthly Online Coaching Practice Group, on a weekday evening. Here you can observe a coaching session against the ICF competencies, exchange coaching with others and provide and receive feedback from peers, based on the ICF Competencies.  Importantly, you are able to have ongoing contact with your Trainer to ask questions that arise once you are 'out there' using your coaching skills.

    Current students attend for free and Graduates pay a nominal fee (enough to ensure commitment and attendance!).
