“My participation in the Hawk Eye Coaching Program…[now Life-Mapping Coaching] prepared me to coach veterans in transition, integration and sustainability phases not only with confidence but also with passion. The program material offers any participant major insight into a veteran’s core experience, including the many variables this population may present…What a fortunate decision on my part to have participated in the Hawk Eye Coaching Program. The gains have been personal as well as professional. Kudos to its’ founder and every best wish to those veterans who will be benefiting from a program that derives from the highest of intentions for them.” DMH

Below is an overview of the program. Scroll down for requirements.

As a CENTER FOR CREDENTIALING AND EDUCATION (CCE) – Board Certified Coach, you understand the magnitude of offering sound, ethical and inspiring foundations for your clients to succeed. As a Board Certified Coach, myself I understand the importance of offering innovative and purposeful training opportunities. You may be called to work with our military service members, their families, or you may be working with their managers. Some of you may be veterans, reservists or spouses or partners seeking to support military-connected people and find a career that allows independence and flexibility.

While many of the lessons covered in this course could apply to almost any person facing drastic transitions in life and career, some of these lessons are so specially crafted and designed to get at the core of the differences, the nuances that make life-mapping and transitioning different for service members. Yes – as the news announces it seems daily – it can be a harrowing, challenging experience for some. Yet for others it is an exciting challenge. Success often comes down to a service member, family or even manager who hires military having someone in their corner who gets “it” who can support, respect and co-design plans of purpose and dignity. This is where you, as a BCC, can come in and have that special edge. This course offers insight into the nuances of military life – its benefits and its drawbacks when it comes to a person moving forward, back into a civilian setting.

BlueRio Strategies has been offering high-caliber training programs for more than 9 years and the past five years has offered the nation’s first CCE-BCC Approved, FULL coaching certification program that specifically trains people to assist military veterans. This Track C is based off this original Flagship course. Now we have just updated its curriculum.
