About Us

OUR JOURNEY –

Our path began in 1990 with the development of a program specifically designed for individuals seeking assistance in areas self-improvement. Life Coaching became our primary focus [although it was not known as Coaching, at that time], in 1992 as we began offering one and two-day ‘intensive’ workshops in cooperation with sponsoring community organizations. Back in 1992, we were sailing through relatively uncharted waters. Over time, the power of the Internet has afforded us a growing professional network and a campus and student body that is currently world-wide. We are dedicated to establishing and maintaining the highest levels of professionalism in Coaching and continue to remain a forerunner in the development of tools specific to individuals interested in a professional career as a Life Coach.

Vern sincerely and passionately believes that coaching can empower SA citizens to help transform communities and the nation one person and business at a time…and by becoming a coach they can follow in the footsteps of one of South Africa’s great moral and political leaders of our time, Nelson Mandela, who always encourages everyone to “get involved and make a difference in the lives of others and the world.”

OUR PHILOSOPHY –

* That the quality of one’s life is directly related to the extent that the individual honors his/her own personal vision and goals;
* That to the extent that an individual directs focus on his/her own personal vision and goals is directly related to the manifestation;
* That directed thought in and of itself is the true power of creative expression and therefore has the power to render change, heal, inspire and energize.

ETHICS & STANDARDS –

The purpose of the Code of Ethics and Standards that we adhere to is threefold. First, it provides the broad principles and values to which coaches subscribe. These include confidentiality and the utmost concern for the welfare and success of the client. Secondly, it provides rules for coaches to use in many of the specific situations that a coach might encounter. Finally, this Code is meant to serve as a building block for the ethical and moral standards of coaches. While each individual coach certified agrees to follow this Code, they are encouraged to supplement and add to it in order to build a lifelong commitment to building an ethical workplace and profession that lives and breathes for oneself.
