What makes this program unique:

  1. CRCP integrates science-backed wellness practices with coaching for change tools.
  2. The program focuses on habit change. Many of the lifestyle enhancements that augment our resilience are common sense, but are not common practice. By focusing the program on habit change we make the common sense your common practice.
  3. It is designed based upon the neuroscience of behaviour change and the latest insights into neuro-plasticity. The program creates a new environment for you to engage in and challenges you to new ways of thinking and new ways of behaving in order to build your resilience and supercharge your overall wellbeing.
  4. The program offers hands-on experience & real-life results.  CRCP is an experiential program; you will experience developing your resilience, observing your obstacles and learning what it takes to overcome them. You will also experience coaching another through the same process.
  5. It offers accountability, support and community. This is a blended learning program. While you have the opportunity to work through much of the content from anywhere on your own time, you will also have the opportunity to come together with peers, to discuss, deliberate and experience. Also, you will be held accountable to develop your resilience-enhancing practices and your coaching practice. 
  6. The program provides coaching business opportunities. More and more people are searching for holistic natural ways to live happier, healthier lives.  This program offers a coaching system, a professional network, a certification and an opportunity to be a part of a roster of resilience coaches.

Simon Trevarthen

"When we can help our clients build tiny daily habits to strengthen their resilience, all aspects of their life become more open to transformation. I would recommend CRCP program because it has 100 per cent up-leveled my coaching offering. The topic of resilience during the global pandemic we are all living is not only important, but essential for coaches and clients alike. This course is needed more than ever! What I would say to a coach trying to decide whether to take the Program: Just do it! You will not only gain a ton of value and knowledge, but the instructors are super generous in sharing their tools and practices, which has been so helpful with my clients. Best part: it is ICF accredited!"

Tara Sutorius

"The CRCP was truly an investment into myself, my future, my coaching practice, and clients. Building up my indepth understanding of resiliency has set me up to live the rest of my life more intentionally, with far less stress and make an ongoing positive impact on everyone around me. While the principles may seem simple, the fact is, if it was easy to do, everyone would already be living this way. With Covid, I believe this course came at the perfect time. There was tremendous benefit of taking this course with other coaches and learning from and inspiring each other with our shared experiences. Thank you so much for this program. I would 10/10 recommend this to anyone who is considering it."

Heather Emmerzael

"When I came across this course I knew it would be a win-win. As a long-standing therapist who just moved into full on coaching, the content was exactly what I need to get well-grounded in resilience. Everything they presented was evidenced-based, and when I committed to completing the exercises it changed my day to day life! Excellent course, I highly recommend it."

Elena Sherwood, PhD

"I want to again thank you; the program was just fantastic… I work in a fast-paced, deadline-intensive, ever-evolving, high-pressure industry… compound that with the additional stress that the pandemic has put upon us. Being resilient is not an option but a necessity… and the steps acquired during the Certified Resilience Coach Program have allowed me to manage not only my stress and anxiety, but also of those around me with greater ease. I would recommend this program to anyone who wishes to take back control of their lives; to find peace, serenity, and a better balance."

"The Certified Resilience Coach Program has been invaluable. Some of my coaching clients are clergy and churches who are struggling with overwhelm, burnout, and anxiety. Thanks to the CRCP training, I have been able to help pastors and congregations build resilience so that they can serve with enthusiasm and vitality. Resilience is a vital component of a meaningful life, and the Leadership Wellness Group’s resilience training has been essential in both my personal life and in my coaching."

Judith Cooke
ICF Certified Coach, Clarity for Change Coaching

"This program is a great resource for coaches who often deal with overwhelm issues expressed by their clients. It provides coaches with concrete suggestions and powerful questions through a tool box to help guide their clients towards more productive and happy lives. The combination of on-line and in-person meetings works well to promote learning and networking. On a personal level, my self awareness of the level of my resilience at any given moment and the action that I need to take to improve it, has changed. I am more driven towards self care and happiness."

Irene Robert
Executive Coach & Founder of Coaching for Results

"I thought the Certified Resilience Coach Program was excellent. The way the program is designed so thoughtfully helped me to make real change. The program was never far from my mind. With new content being released each week and the set-up with the accountability partnership, I kept thinking about and integrating new habits into my life. The combination of in-person learning, online modules and accountability partnership over a 3 month period made this one of the best programs I've attended. A lot of programs have no follow-up at all, but this program is a great example of how create real results."

Susan Gregory
Executive Coach and Founder of Best Work Yet

"The Certified Resilience Coach Program reminded me that we continually need to “do the work” on ourselves in order to be real and authentic with our clients. It’s given me tools to be more mindful and to discover ways in which I can maintain a positive mindset, especially during this pandemic. I believe I’ve been more present and helpful to the people around me. In fact, it’s made all the difference in my life and work, and I think I’ve been a really good influence on the people around me."

Nancy Melcher

"The Certified Resilience Coach Program is a wonderful, wholistic program that provides you with the foundation to create sustainable and healthy change. Whether you are dealing with your own personal trauma, stress, illness or just want to improve your own resiliency, this program will help you do that. One of the greatest things I learned is what exactly resilience means and realizing I was already more resilient than I thought. Learning how to cultivate resilience by engaging in, and building wellness habits, not only helps to promote greater self-awareness, but takes you closer to reaching your own goals so you can live a life of joy, ease, health and vitality. I would highly recommend this program to others whether you are a coach or otherwise. We can all use these foundational supports to help us in life. Thank you for a wonderful experience."

Louise Veres

"Coaches beware – the work starts with you - bringing awareness to and strengthening your own resilience is a foundational piece. If you are a coach looking to add resilience tools to your toolbox – this is the course for you.
