Coaching Empowers Women in Developing Countries

Sep 14, 2018

By MCS Senior Student Chelle Johnson

I’ll be going to Uganda and Kenya in November for two weeks with a group of coaches. We will be coaching women and teen girls, and helping them set motivating and clear goals for all areas of their lives. Many of the women run small businesses to earn money, and teaching them how to set and achieve goals helps their families and the entire community. We partner with groups like Days for Girls, a local Women’s Empowerment Center, and the village leaders. A portion of our time is spent doing projects like installing water purification systems, building chicken coops, donating livestock, and remodeling classrooms.

I travelled to India with this group in 2016. While there, we coached hundreds of students at a small agricultural university – helping them to plan for their future and to steer their life, rather than letting life happen to them. We also spent some time at a center dedicated to improving the lives of women in the sex-trade and their children.

I love being able to use my coaching skills to empower others. When I can combine that with a humanitarian focus while meeting new people, learning about other cultures, and getting to see some really amazing places along the way, it fills my heart and soul.

This course and experience really energized me and got me invigorated to be more creative in my work and life, and take more risks. That was the biggest surprise benefit of all!!

Stretch” is a good name for this course. It stretched us all to reach beyond what we thought we knew, dig deeply to experience those paths that we will be coaching on, and stay open and curious about everything.

This class [Right Speech] was an eye-opener in showing me new levels of what empathy and compassion can do to make us feel more connected and loved. I’ve improved the way I communicate with others and everything I learned has benefited my clients immensely too.

Body Electric gave me more confidence in the mindfulness and somatic tools I was using in my coaching as well as added a whole new dimension of tools to my toolbox. Having access to effective somatic tools has deepened and enriched the coaching experience for me and my clients.

I appreciated the online learning format for obtaining my EMDRIA credits and was glad to experience a taste of professional coaching. The class (The Dynamic Trio) made me curious about the process of transitioning from a clinical psychologist towards a professional coach. Thanks!

I really enjoyed taking The Dynamic Trio: EMDR, Positive Psychology & Somatic Coaching. The course provided me with new knowledge and applications of the material, not just to use in my personal life but also to integrate what I learned into my practice as a mental health therapist… I appreciate Ann-Marie setting the mood for the group and laying the foundation for safety, acceptance and openness from the beginning.

S-T-R-E-T-C-H! Becoming The Incredible Coach You Truly Are was amazing; a must do class for anyone wanting to become a coach or anyone who is already a coach and needs to feel refreshed and revitalized by the possibilities of coaching and the difference the practice can make. I would thoroughly recommend this course, it is not for the fainthearted, you need to be all in – but it’s hard not to be when it’s delivered with such passion and commitment by Ann-Marie, and all your colleagues and peers are so invested. A total life experience, eye opening, breath taking and consciousness deepening. This is a course I will come back to again and repeat!

Body Electric takes a coach deep into their own somatic wisdom. This embodied learning then becomes a backbone to how we coach.
