Welcome to Academy of Choice
The Academy of Choice offers several different Choice Coaching programs to meet a variety of needs. There are programs for already licensed helping professionals—psychologists, therapist, counselors and social workers. We also offer programs for unlicensed professionals who are already coaches who want to improve their coaching skills and unlicensed professionals looking to break into the field of coaching for the first time. We also offer programs for business professional who wish to add coaching skills to their arsenal of supervision skills.
Our programs can be taken in person, online or a mix of the two.
Our revolutionary coaching process is built on the foundation of the legendary work of Dr. William Glasser’s, Choice Theory®, which helps people understand the only person’s behavior they can control is their own but also teaches many effective ways to influence the behavior of others. Choice Coaches know how to help their clients become bigger than anything that happens to them. Choice Coaching assists clients with taking responsibility for the solutions to their own problems, while helping them learn how to have the greatest positive influence with the important people in their lives.
Success is being able to affect the change in your life that you want, while gracefully accepting, and even appreciating, those things that come your way that you didn’t want originally. —Kim Olver
Choice coaches assist their clients to clarify their vision, mission, values and goals. They ask more questions, than provide direct answers, with the goal of guiding the client toward options that will maximize the likelihood of goal attainment. Coaches work from a position of strength and wellness, as opposed to deficit and pathology. Choice Coaching provides just the right balance of support, challenge and accountability.
