Where many life coaching methods are about adding rules and goals, we believe that everyone already has the ability to create their best lives. Wayfinder coaches learn to clear away confusion and help people find the way “home” to the lives that best serve them.

Our coaches learn to use simple but powerful Wayfinding tools. Regardless of our circumstances, learning these skills can take us to purpose, fulfillment, and peace. The work of Wayfinder coaching is to live our best lives and help others live theirs.

Absolutely! The skills you’ll learn in this program will make you happier and more effective in your professional and personal life, whether or not you decide to choose coaching as a career. Whatever your personal mission, this training will help you fulfill it.

Homework varies, but we recommend that you set aside three hours per week outside of normal class time.

This homework is not like schoolwork. We passionately believe that people learn best through the fun, relaxed experience of practices that delight and motivate them. If you often spend time talking to friends or family members about their lives, you’ll find the homework is quite a bit like what you’re already doing and a lot more fun. You’ll be practicing your new coaching skills weekly with volunteers you find in your community and with your classmates. You’ll also be watching Martha’s video series and listening to accompanying audios each week.

The books and resources you’ll need to read/reference for this training are:

  • Steering by Starlight by Martha Beck
  • Finding Your Own North Star by Martha Beck
  • Loving What Is by Byron Katie
  • Finding Your Way in a Wild New World by Martha Beck

You do not have to read all of these before we start! Focus on Steering by Starlight first and read from the beginning through the chapter titled “Digging out of the Dungeon.” Then move through them in the order listed. It is recommended that you read Loving What Is by the time you get to Coach the Coach Practicum 2.

These books and resources are not included in your tuition fee, so you may borrow or purchase them as needed.

All expenses are listed on our website. You are not required to hire a personal coach or purchase anything else during the training or for your certification process. Should you choose to hire a coach, that’s fine, but it’s a personal decision based on what feels right for you.

Yes. We offer an installment plan with eight easy payments. In order to enroll and secure a spot in our training, we require the first of eight equal payments. This option includes a 5% service charge. Click through to the order form for exact terms and dates.

All Wayfinder Life Coach Training participants may request a refund until the Refund Window closes. The Refund Window is open from your initial registration date until the day after your second class in the training (dates will vary).

To request a refund, email WLCT@marthabeck.com. We will refund whatever you have paid, less a $925USD service fee. The service fee will not be applied to any future training or events. We will not offer refunds after the Refund Window closes.

All our classes are recorded and uploaded to your online learning site within 48 hours. Although your attendance will not affect your eligibility for certification, we have found that students who are consistently absent are often unprepared to pass their certification exams.

Martha facilitates five classes per training with all of the different sections combined in one virtual classroom. For those classes, everyone will dial in at 10am PT. If you can’t make it at that time, remember that all our classes are recorded and uploaded to your online learning site within 48 hours.

All classes are conducted via a teleconferencing service.

There are two main reasons why we have opted out of video conferencing for the training. The first is purely technological, as we have found it difficult to provide a stable service across the globe and to people with varying technological knowledge and internet stability.

The other reason is actually more important. Along with the tools we teach, we are also practicing how to listen and feel what is happening with a client. With a video conference, there are multiple distractions that interrupt the ability to really “hear” what the client is saying and feeling. Without the visual distraction, you begin listening, seeing, and feeling into what is really happening with your client in an intuitive way. Move away from the unnatural light of a computer screen, the desire to be “camera ready,” settle into a conversation, and really listen . . . it is an art in itself.
