The Best of Both Worlds: Online Study and a Live Workshop Event
It is all too common to hear from Coach graduates that the training they have completed does not meet their needs to properly deliver the application of what is learned. In addition to this, many coaches have different preferences for training; some are experienced and want an advanced option to anchor their service. Others simply prefer to learn in a live setting.
There is nothing wrong with online courses; they are just different than a live event. We recognize that many of you want more. We cannot tell you how often we are asked about live training, it is probably our most requested offering.
Our workshops are structured to address adult learners, using strategies that are based on practical experience and application. Our blended learning approach is complementary to busy professionals who want the flexibility of an online course paired with the practical experience of a live workshop. This simply means that part of your course is accessible online and we use the workshop time to reinforce what you need to be the best coach you can be.

In our live workshops, there is one main goal: to prepare you to be the best, most competent and complete Certified Wellness Coach you can be! The philosophy sounds simple, but this requires a lot of work in the background. First, the content:
Our program is built upon the Coaching Guidelines as set forth by the International Coaching Federation (ICF). This complete set of coaching skills ensures professionalism, proficiency and most of all, confidence. You begin the journey with a bit of background about what Wellness is, how Wellness Coaching became a force in setting behavior change standards and then of course; you also learn delivery models based on using the Transtheoretical Model and Stages of Change.
Your training supports learning these skills and protocols by practicing some incredibly powerful live skills in real time – namely Motivational Interviewing, Appreciative Inquiry, Change Talk and the art of the Coach’s Presence. Each candidate will walk away with practical experience in these key tenets of coaching. No more feeling like you have wasted time learning about Wellness, only to walk away not knowing what to do or where to start!
But more than anything, Evexia have effectively used feedback to shape their workshop into what Certified Wellness Coaches want – and need – from a training program. You will learn volumes on the positive psychology behind Wellness Coaching; that is a given. Going the extra step in providing physical training for Wellness Coaching is also part of the Evexia model, too! We believe, like our partners, that a program is not complete without incorporating both.
