Charla Christy, PCC
As a coach since 2012, one thing I have learned is that the most important thing I bring to the coaching relationship is me.
Our values, beliefs, and experiences have as much to do with our effectiveness as a coach as our skills and training.
I do have the training and certifications, but I also have some pretty amazing experiences.
I have lived a life full of pain and suffering, love and joy, accomplishments and failures. I’ve struggled with the ups and downs as a wife of police officer since 2000.
I have built a thriving counseling and coaching practice. I’ve survived my mom’s suicide.
I’ve raised a fabulous young boy. I’ve taught in Cambodia and built a playground there too. I’ve gone from being someone with no hope or belief in herself to someone who is creating a school to train people who will show others that they can accomplish anything if it aligns with their deepest core values.
I have met and coached some amazing people and teams. I’ve watched a man save his ministry from closing after just one coaching session.
I’ve coached people who wrote books, ran marathons, survived deaths, started businesses, retired, planted churches, and even became life coaches.
I have seen how all of these experiences, and many more, impact my ability to connect with and encourage everyone I work with. I wouldn’t trade that for the highest degree, but I know how important education is too. Learning is one of my highest motivators and I’ve done a lot of that too.
I have a degree in Psychology from the University of Colorado as well as advanced certifications from the Christian Counseling Education Foundation. I was certified as a coach in 2012 through Coachnet Global. I have Behaviors and Motivators certifications through Target Training International – they do the assessments we use in all of our coaching.
I completed another coach training program through Coachville and earned a CVACC (Coachville Associate Certified Coach) as well as my Associate Certified Coach credential through ICF.
I look forward to learning and growing with you, as you embark on this journey.
