What is the next chapter of my (work) life? What am I reaching towards? How do I gain clarity on what I want next?

If you are looking for answers to these questions and want to coach with those questions, this is the right program.

This North Star – Coaching for Self-Actualization © program is a highly impactful and condensed leadership coaching certificate program and enables participants to use the North Star Framework© with individuals in 1:1 coaching sessions.

Participants will learn about the relationship between Self-Actualization and the North Star Framework, work on their own North Star and learn about effective 1:1 coaching skills.

The North Star – Coaching for Self-Actualization © Framework was developed by Timothy Tiryaki in 2007 and improved after more than thousands of participants went through the workshop version and 1:1 coaching sessions.

The North Star framework focuses on defining one’s purpose by working on 6 pillars. Participants will gain a better understanding of how to work on purpose, vision, values, goals, and strengths and explore the dynamics between these.

This framework is very helpful in career conversations; rather than focusing on titles or roles, it encourages building better self-knowledge and self-awareness to make more purposeful choices in life.

Participants will also improve their understanding of the theory of motivation and needs and build a stronger language to express needs, show empathy to understand the needs of others, and ask better questions to explore needs.
