MODULE TWO: CERTIFIED DISASTER RECOVERY COACH
Whether it’s a natural disaster, a personal tragedy,
the loss of a loved one, a traumatic divorce or a major career setback our Disaster Recovery Coach training will provide you with additional tools, techniques and exercises to help your clients recover and restart their lives.
This course was originally created to train and assist scores of our coaching graduates who volunteered their services to help families and individuals recover and restart their lives after Hurricane Harvey devastated Texas and Louisiana. I am proud to report our Disaster Recovery Coaching program was a tremendous success. Since then our amazing volunteer coaches continue to be there when the need arises.
From this experience, we learned the additional tools and exercises we created for our Disaster Recovery Coach program were equally effective with our paying clients who have been through a traumatic experience as well. Disasters come in all shapes and sizes. A personal tragedy such as the loss of a loved one, a traumatic divorce or a major career setback can feel like a disaster to our clients. Now you will have additional coaching tools and exercises to help your clients in their time of need.
Upon completion of this module, you will receive your second professional coaching credential as a Certified Disaster Recovery Coach.
