Become an MMS/ICF Coach!
MMS Offers ICF Accredited Training Worldwide
When she started MMS Worldwide Institute specializing in training professional coaches online globally, she predicted that one day it would become a profession. MMS is the oldest Coach Training organization in the world! This ICF ACTP program (125-hour) is fully online and continues to train the most effective Coaches in the world. The addition to being taught by Dr. Chérie, our students also secure their certification as an ICF/MMS coach! MMS also offers the (60-hour) ACSTH for students who want to get started but are challenged by time, schedules, or finances.
An MMS trained coach helps clients determine their vision, strategy, action plan, and then supports them in the realization of the next chapter of their lives. Dr. Chérie Carter-Scott envisioned coaching as a profession in 1974, when she started MMS Worldwide Institute specializing in training the best coach professionals. Dr. Chérie realized that the skills required to coach were very different from consulting, advising, and mentoring. As a response to significant demand, Dr. Chérie designed and presented the very first MMS Coach Training in San Francisco in 1974; later in 1990 MMS Coach Training was invited to Europe, to train coaches; then in 2010 MMS Coach Training was invited to train coaches in Asia.
The MMS Certified Coaches are supported by learning the ICF Core Competencies that include asking open-ended questions, listening actively, evoking awareness, suspending judgment, creating a safe and supportive environment encouraging the client to use their presence, imagination, desire, willingness, belief, and commitment to create the life they want to live. The coach has no agenda, nor does she know what the best option for the client is. The MMS Coach doesn’t provide his own advice, guidance, or good ideas, like a mentor does.
Humans are creatures of habit. We like familiar, predictable, stable, controllable circumstances. Transitions can be unsettling…for anyone because they drive us into the unknown zone. When circumstances change, they can cause a little ripple, vertigo, or even a full-scale “Life-quake.” Whether we set our own goals, like getting in shape, lowering our golf score, or becoming an excellent presenter…when change occurs, like interviewing for a new job opportunity, where new skills are required, doubt, uncertainty, overwhelm, and even low-level anxiety can easily enter one’s thoughts and feelings..
In order to navigate through the opportunities, threats, risks, and benefits, it is essential to have an objective, focused, and supportive coach who can ensure steady progress while providing empathy for the client. The environment must be safe, judgment-free, permissive, and creative in order for the client to discover their best options and emerge as their best self. The process is short-term and results-oriented. Initially, the transition is communicated, the options and alternatives are explored, and a choice is made taking all factors into consideration. After the choice has been determined, a plan is formulated based on motivation, capability, ramifications, and time factors. At this point the coach stays closely connected to the client to provide support and encouragement at each juncture…whether it is to offer support when plans are obstructed, encouragement when everything seems hopeless, or validation when results have been produced. The coach is a trusted, confidential, and safe professional who possesses exceptional listening skills, coupled with finely tuned intuition encapsulated with “empathetic un-attachment” to empower the client to grow through and with the transition presented.
"Learning to coach is like swimming upstream against the current. Our world is full of experts, authorities, advisors, and mentors. Learning to coach from the "inside out" means that you access your authentic self, transcend your ego, and become a partner in service to your clients. MMS Worldwide Institute offers the TECC course with elegance, scientific documentation, and support every step along the way. When you choose this course you choose the original, the oldest training for coaches, and the best!"

"The MMS coach training contains every element that I have been searching for. The power of awakening, the presence, the connection to one’s inner wisdom, and the purpose of encouraging others to be brilliant in their own lives, closely resonate with me. I have experienced several transformational moments in my life, from an entrepreneur to a corporate employee, from a China country HR Head to a global HR leader, from partnering with business leaders to leading the global function for leadership development programs for Philips.
