Vision and Goals of the program:

The twelve-week intensive in-person program teaches coaching from the inside-out, using the original and oldest MMS coaching method.  The approach is based on these three key assumptions:

People have an “Inner Knowing” regarding what is “right” for them
People possess the resources to manifest what they want in their lives
People can have their lives be the way they truly want them

The vision for our MMS Coach Training is to train individuals to become “Brilliant” coaches. At the completion of the program, each participant will be able to efficiently clarify the underlying issue, get to the essence of the matter, determine specifically what the client ideally wants, and support the client in strategizing an action plan so that he or she can fulfill or manifest their vision. It is our goal for students participating in our program to fully embody the ICF Ethical standards along with the ICF and MMS Core Competencies, and to be prepared to professionally coach individuals either independently or within an organizational setting.

What Graduates Say About MMS

Roland Slot, The Netherlands

The moment I met Chérie, I felt a special connection and I thought: she can teach me some things that are important for me to learn. So I took the MMS Coach Training, which exceeded my already high expectations. I learned a lot about myself, got rid of a couple of major limiting beliefs and learned to be an effective coach, able to empower others. I use my newly acquired skills in my business, in my family and in every aspect of my life – wherever I find it appropriate to use them. I can highly recommend this course to anyone regarding of whether you want to become a professional coach, change jobs, or just want to get better at what you are already doing.

Claire Higgins, Dubai

Responding to an inner call to attend the MMS Coach Training in Bangkok has quite literally changed my life. The three months were to hold some of the most challenging and most precious times of my life. I lived and grew in ways that I had previously thought unimaginable. With the support of the entire MMS team, I was able to break through many obstacles and start seeing myself as a coach. Now, back home, I am in the process of setting up my own coaching business. I am grateful for every ounce of wisdom and support I have received, especially that which ultimately came from within.
Gregor Schmalz

Gregor Schmalz, Thailand

I took the MMS Coach Training in summer 2014. MMS Coach Training did not only match, but exceeded my expectations. As a former Senior Manager and Executive you preach constant change with a high impact on the most important asset a company has, its people. MMS Coach Training put me on an inner journey in which I discovered the challenges of change, the importance of my true feelings and the true power of commitment, being connected and the beauty of helping others to fulfill their own potential. The MMS Coach Training is of extraordinary value for both my private and professional life and it is a ‘must-do’ for any newcomer to the coaching field.
Amelia Zhou

Amelia Zhou, China

I have experienced several transformational moments in my life, from an entrepreneur to a corporate employee. But why have I just kept going and the satisfaction and joy did not fully land in me? What do I want out of life? With these doubts in mind, I embarked on the MMS coaching training program. During the training I became more and more aware that I was changing from within. I began to embrace the unknown possibilities and build up more positive energy around me. Dr. Chérie is the most knowledgeable, pacesetter in coaching. I am glad to know that she is going to lead the TECC from China/Asia. A learning program led by her will be a journey of faith, trust and love.
