We'll start by answering the most obvious questions that you are likely to have about this upgrade offer. If, as we hope, you decide to go ahead and upgrade, scroll to the bottom for details on the fees and how to enrol.
Version 5 represents a substantial leap forward from previous versions, 1-4.
Many important changes have been incorporated into the latest version. However, you can rest assured that we've taken care to retain all the core concepts, principles and overall philosophy that have always set New Insights training apart!
Here's a brief summary of the changes::
We have introduced I-N-S-I-G-H-T-S, our proprietary coaching model that provides a logical foundation and the relevant context for our skills training and the updated New Insights Life Coaching System.
The Skills Training modules have been restructured. Topics have been re-ordered and re-grouped to complement the I-N-S-I-G-H-T-S model and improve the flow. More new information, along with more detailed explanations, visuals, exercises and examples, has been added.
All seven Skills Training modules are now also available as audio files in mp3 format.
The Life Coaching System has been extended to include 15 sessions. It, too, has been restructured to complement the I-N-S-I-G-H-T-S model and improve the overall flow.
The Session Notes have been completely redesigned and updated. They are now electronically fillable, making remote coaching sessions easier and more convenient to conduct.
An all-new Coaching Session Guide has been introduced, with a detailed session-by-session walk through of the upgraded New Insights Life Coaching System. Guidance is also provided on how to run free-form or 'transactional' coaching sessions using a generic coaching model.
To protect the integrity of the New Insights Life Coaching System and the exclusivity of New Insights certified life coaches, the concept of a Licensed Practitioner Coach (has been introduced (more about this below).
We suggest upgrading to Version 5 is a must, if:
We've named it that because it offers you a simple 'bridge'.
The bridge will take you from where you are now (having completed certification some years ago on an outdated version of our training), to being a New Insights certified life coach bang up to date with – and able to take full advantage of – all of the changes and improvements built into our training.
You'll also have the option to license our new and improved Life Coaching System for use in your coaching practice.
No, not at all.
The idea behind the Bridging Course is to recognise your prior certification and to build on that by familiarising you and bringing you up to date with all the changes that have been incorporated into our training since then.
Although you will get access to all the new skills training material and the new Life Coaching System, this online course will focus on imparting information about the changes and you will be assessed according to how well you understand and can apply these changes.
All of the newly updated skills training material will be delivered to you by courier as before. This cost of this is built into the course fee 😊.
This course is entirely online, delivered via our new online e-learning platform, New Insights Online.
Once you enrol, you will be given login details to access the platform and the v5 Bridging Course.
This course will:
The maximum time that we allow you to complete all the requirements for this course (including practicals) is a very generous 12 months from the date you enrol.
The total duration of the videos that walk you through the changes is only about 50 minutes. The practical work can be completed in 15 - 30 weeks (depending on whether you coach weekly or fortnightly).
So rest assured, you should easily be able to complete the course within 6 months or less.
With the advent of version 5 of our training, we introduced a license agreement which sets out the terms by which New Insights certified life coaches may use the New Insights Life Coaching System in their practices.
This is aimed at preventing unauthorised use of the System, thereby protecting its integrity and the exclusivity of New Insights certified life coaches who choose to use it in their coaching practices.
