Star Factor catalyzes leaders to build self-awareness and use self-regulation to improve relationships, performance, and decision-making.
By choosing personal, professional development, leaders begin with themselves and then encourage others to build their emotional intelligence skills, leading to a creative, flourishing organization.
Leaders who work with Star Factor Coaching develop leadership styles that spark positive change within themselves, with their teams and throughout their organizations.
"My hope was that organizations would start including this range of skills in their training programs – in other words, offer an adult education in social and emotional intelligence."
Coaching Certification Institution
Star Factor offers trainings for professionals looking to become coaches and organizations in need of internal coaches, or, coaches who wish to expand their work to include emotional intelligence. This 1 to 2 -year development process begins with a five-day training, pre-assessments in emotional intelligence and other leadership areas, and a supervised internship that leads to a certification process. Initial certification can be obtained after one year.
One-on-one coaching can be arranged for individuals or a group of individuals. Coaching relationships are, minimally, six sessions and each session is approximately one hour and a half long and takes place over a four to six-month period. The number of sessions and time frame, is flexible. Together, the coach and client create a plan for ongoing development anchored in the use of emotion skills and competencies.
