We train and certify coaches, OD professionals, change managers, and leaders in the field of psychology we call change fitness. But training with us doesn’t just give you information and knowledge – it also gives you access to a suite of tools that empowers you to operationalise that knowledge that knowledge – to put it into practice and make it produce benefits for you. It is very practical and you will clearly see how you can use it and how it can help you be more successful.
The Certified Change Fitness Practitioner Program is not a lightweight program. It takes 9 months to complete – if you contribute a few hours to it every week. The Program consists of 3 parts – each lasting 12 weeks. Before we look at these 3 parts, there’s something you should understand.
Remember I said there are tools you will be licensed to use in your practice? There are 2 main ones. One is a psychometric test that helps you diagnose a client’s change fitness strengths and weaknesses. This is something you would use (preferably) at the start of your time with a client. It will help you understand what their needs are, and how you should approach them. The second tool is a 12 week online program you can give your client to help them develop their change fitness. This program is called the Personal Change Fitness Program, and it targets the very things that the assessment measures. You would give (sell) this Program to your clients – they do it online and you coach them as they move through it. Once you have been licensed, you will be able to use, and make money from, these 2 tools.
Let’s go back to the Certified Change Fitness Practitioner Program. In the first 3 months, you will experience the change fitness assessment tool and the Personal Change Fitness Program. In other words, you will get the same experience that your clients will get as they work with you. You will complete the Program in your own time, and will meet with your coach from The Change Gym for around 5 hours over the 12 week period.
Once you have completed this first 3 months, you will know whether these tools are right for you. If you can’t see yourself using them, there’s no point in progressing. But, if you can, you can proceed to the second 3 months of the Program. Here you will learn 3 things. First, you will learn more about the change fitness concept, and how it fits into the broader psychological literature. Second, you will learn how to interpret and use the change fitness assessment tool (a psychometric test). Third, you will learn what to do in the coaching sessions to help your clients get the most benefit from the Personal Change Fitness Program.
And what about the final 12 weeks? No more book learning here – you just use the tools with your clients, and we support you as you practise your new skills. Once you have shown proficiency, we license you.
