Ontological Coaching Certification: ontology – mindfulness – ecology 

Additionally, you will receive a certification in Ontological Coaching – a unique method of coaching designed by Bettie J.  Spruill. 

“Ontology” refers to the study of our way of actually being in the world, that is, our practices and linguistic habits that shape the possibilities for our lives. Ontological training empowers us to transform these socially-constructed paradigms, and sharpens our capacity to see that what we do, what we think, and how we live is conditioned by the linguistic, ecological, and cultural space we’ve embodied in our practices.

By adeptly understanding the linguistic patterns and habits that shape this embodiment—the “speech-actions” that condition our possibilities in life—we more directly shape the world we live in, and empower ourselves to invent a reality that is meaningful, purpose-driven, fulfilling, and socially transformative.

Our team of expert coaches and philosophers provide both rigorous theoretical and practical training by offering a holistically-designed package of webinars, study-groups, conferences, hands-on training, mentorship, and business consulting.

Through your coaching practice, people have the opportunity to discover their own genius, strengthen their vision, face their fears, increase their income and their proficiency.  Many of our trained coaches and their clients also claim to experience a deeper sense of peace, purpose, and compassion.

Ideal Coaching Global is designed for you to have a quantum shift in your life, sculpting you as a leader while transforming the quality of your life and your organization.

Organizational & Business Coaching

“Ecology, as a way of being and thinking, is a new paradigm. Everything is connected. If you change one part of the system, all will fall into place. Often people won’t let themselves have their results because they are too attached to their system. When the system is threatened, we back off. Until you can answer your own concerns ecologically, you won’t have results.” ~Bettie J. Spruill

Mindful Leadership

“In breakdown, there are new possibilities. When things stay the same, there are no possibilities. Great leaders listen for breakdowns before they happen. They expect them to happen. Fail fast and fail forward- failure means you’re learning. Leaders are not afraid to fail. Rather, leaders see every failure as a new possibility for success.” ~Bettie J. Spruill

High Performance Teams / Corporate Learning Programs

“What makes people excellent? When you can listen to assessments without defending or justifying yourself, you open possibilities. Your possibilities are connected to your team.” ~Bettie J. Spruill

“People are often blind to their own language. Cognitive blindness holds people back from their full potential. Coaches provide clarity by assisting people in uncollapsing distinctions in language. Distinguishing language allows people to take effective action. It gives peace of mind, responsibility, authorship, power, and transformation: the ability to go beyond circumstances. ” ~Bettie J. Spruill
