As The Need For Professional Coaches Expands Source Point Training Announces Open Enrollment for Fall Program Coaching Fundamentals and Mastery

Barbara Fagan

Healdsburg, CA (PRWEB) August 06, 2012

Rising demand for executive coaching programs is helping to increase income potential for well trained, certified coaches according to Barbara Fagan, co-founder of Source Point Training (http://www.source

According to the 2012 ICF Global Coaching Study, revenues from professional coaching has nearly doubled over the past few years: globally to $ 1.9 billion, $ 707 million in North America alone. The same report shows that in North America the average annual income has risen to about $ 50,000 with median annual incomes at about $ 30,000. Industry trends also show that top-earners are now earning in excess of $ 65,000 a year.

“Rising demand is not only coming from corporations, but from individuals who want more productivity at the workplace and greater satisfaction from their work,” says Fagan. “And the rise in demand is fueled by report after report that shows how effective professional executive coaching really is.”

Fagan shares, “Many people ask me about Life Coaching and what the difference is from our designation at Source Point Training of Certified Professional Performance Coaches (CPPC). When studying with people like Dr. Covey, Larry Wilson, Lou Tice and the works of Peter Druker, I observed similarities in each of their philosophies in one key area – objective results.”

At Source Point Training, we teach our coaches the ground of being performance coaches which is ontological. This means that as we are coaching on particular outcomes, we are also seeing all the inter-dependencies and what will change as a result of achieving a desired outcome.

“In order to be effective today, we cannot live our life in a set of compartments,” says Fagan. “The way that our world is changing, we see the cross over between work, play, family, friends and business associates.”

In Fundamentals and Mastery of Performance Coaching, we equip each participant with knowledge, skills and abilities to become a professional performance coach. Fagan is proud that the ICF has approved their curriculum for 141 CCE units. That’s more than most other coach training organizations.

Program: Fundamentals of Performance Coaching, 84.5 CCE units

Training Dates: Sept. 14-16; Dec. 7-9, 2012; and Feb. 22-24, 2013

Location: Phoenix, AZ

Program: Mastery of Performance Coaching, 56.5 CCE units

Training Dates: April 12-14; June28-30, 2013

Location: Phoenix, AZ

There is a stronger case than ever for offering employee coaching in the workplace, according to new research conducted by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) based in the UK. The report, entitled “Taking the Temperature of Coaching,” highlights coaching as a cornerstone of high performance that focuses on the professional development of individual employees. “Coaching continues to be important in maintaining high performance and developing more agile employees, work practices and organizations [sic],” says Dr. John McGurk, adviser for learning and talent at CIPD.

“Companies with a coaching culture have a proven record of higher levels of employee engagement. Right now is a great time to develop these skills as competition for recruiting and retaining the best talent becomes more competitive as businesses recover and expand”. Fagan shares, “We certify our coaches as Performance Coaches because we feel this is where coaching is headed – coaching higher levels of personal and professional performance.”

People who find themselves in a career transition and who have extensive life experiences in different fields see being a professional coach as a means to generate income and contribute to others. Medical and therapeutic practitioners, fitness trainers and physical therapists are taking up coaching to increase client progress. “This is a great time to become a professional coach,” Fagan adds.

Fagan will be hosting a live webinar on August 21st to answer more questions about coaching trends for today and how you might be a candidate to become a Certified Professional Performance Coach. She will conduct a real time coaching session with people who attend this session. You can join her presentation by registering at Source Point Training Webinars.

New Solar Power Systems at Point Loma Nazarene University to be Publicly Unveiled Nowadays

Point Loma Nazarene University

San Diego, CA (PRWEB) November 18, 2011

Two new solar systems will be devoted at a ribbon-cutting ceremony held these days at Point Loma Nazarene University (PLNU). The new 620kW DC photovoltaic (PV) technique and 54 kW solar thermal hot water method on PLNU’s campus will supply a combined savings of up to $ 1.6 million over the next 20 years. The projects create on PLNU’s very first solar PV technique developed by SPG Solar in 2008. PLNU continues to show their commitment to sustainability with one of the highest ratios of solar power to students in the U.S.

SPG Solar – a leading national solar power company – developed, engineered and constructed the 620kW technique that spans two rooftops and 5 solar carports, employing Kyocera KD 235-watt solar panels. Perpetual Energy Systems financed the method via a Energy Buy Agreement under which PLNU will acquire the electricity produced at a predetermined rate over 20 years.

Concurrent to the PV system’s construction was the installation of a 54 kW solar water heating method by Adroit Solar, an integrator of solar thermal systems. The technique will give an estimated 940 gallons of hot water a day to the student dorms and save the university $ 5,000 annually on utility bills. The project was financed by the Student Green Fund, a $ 5 semester fee initiated by students to offer funding for sustainability efforts on campus.

The two projects, which include much more than 2,600 Kyocera solar panels, are expected to create over 917,000 kilowatt-hours annually and give a savings of up to $ 1.6 million more than the subsequent two decades.

What the partners are saying about these innovative solar projects:

“PLNU strives to be forward thinking and take a leadership role in sustainability efforts and environmental stewardship,” said Dr. Bob Brower, president of PLNU. “The stewardship of resources is 1 of our core values. It was by way of the robust partnership with Kyocera, SPG Solar, Perpetual Power Systems, and Adroit Solar that we were in a position to expand our solar portfolio.”

“SPG Solar values its wonderful partnership with Point Loma Nazarene University, to date installing practically 1 megawatt (MW) of solar power on the campus,” stated SPG Solar CEO Chris Robine. “Through the devoted support from the students, faculty and staff, PLNU is a leader and preparing for the future – securing predictable power rates and enriching the educational experience for the students with this cross campus solar energy program.”

“PLNU is 1 of the most innovative universities, filled with students and faculty who are driven by power, water and resource conservation. We applaud their selection to install a solar thermal technique, which further showcases their sustainability efforts and gives consistent financial savings for years to come,” stated Jim Backman, President of Adroit Solar.

“Recognized for its leadership in the region of sustainability, PLNU has joined a growing number of environmentally conscience academic institutions whose investment in clean solar generated-electricity will benefit future generations,” mentioned Steve Hill, president of Kyocera Solar, Inc.
