Your coaching training went above and beyond the average continuing education. I was able to grow not only professionally, but also personally. Thank you for that!

Who Will Be Training You?

sylviaSylvia Becker-Hill graduated in Germany with a Diploma in Business Administration in 1989 and worked for German Telecom in the HR-department. After continuing her studies and earning a Master of Arts in Philosophy at Heinrich Heine University in Düsseldorf in 1997, Sylvia began coaching as one of Germany’s first telephone coaches, working for corporate clients increasing the sustainability of internal training using coaching. She also led training for service orientation, communication and conflict management in large organizations.

As a result of this initial success, in 1998 Sylvia was awarded a 55,000 Euro grant from the German Ministry of School, Education, Science and Research, and started working as a self-employed coach under the business name ‘Commitment’. She also worked intensively for three years as a corporate coach and change management consultant doing post-merger integration process work for large German and international clients. For these kinds of clients she also offered powerful outplacement programs which supported laid off employees to find new jobs strategically.

Sylvia became a member of the International Coach Federation (ICF) in 2001 and was founder of the ICF Rhein/Ruhr Chapter in 2003, became in 2004 a German board member and the German ICF president in 2005. Sylvia was the first coach in Germany to be certified by the ICF as a Professional Certified Coach (PCC) in 2002. She serves now as an elected member of the PCAM (Professional Coaches Association Michigan) board. Since 2009 Sylvia is one of the three official mentor coaches from PCAM preparing PCAM members to become certified as an ACC or PCC by the ICF.

Sylvia is married to a New Zealander, Peter Hill, who is a senior IT project manager, has two sons, Orlando and Sebastian, and has lived in Michigan since summer 2006. From 2008 till spring 2011 she worked with David Chinsky & Associates offering The Institute for Leadership Fitness™ throughout Michigan. With her powerful telephone coaching services she inspires clients around the globe.

She is a published author. “Between four ears” an article about telephone coaching was published in Manager Seminar Issue 66 May 2003. And she wrote a chapter about transfer sustainability with the title “Friday Reflection” for the bestselling book “Coaching-Tools” from Christopher Rauen.

Her newest free downloadable ebooks you can get on her main webpage and blog:

theoI’m from Germany. Doing a coaching training in the USA when the German market is full with alternatives didn’t seem to make sense. So I thought… but only until I personally got to know Sylvia and her coaching training program.

She teaches not just coaching, she lives it with every fibre of her heart and that makes this training special. It is presented with such authenticity, that what it means to be a coach with spirit and heart sticks with you, motivates you, and creates passion for this profession.

In this environment learning coaching tools, applying them and seeing which I want to move forward with, is a fascinating way to discover yourself and at the same time, develop a solid foundation for starting as a coach.

We Believe In Our Program

We are confident that you will benefit extensively from the incredible information and comprehensive training provided by this program, resulting in profound personal growth and significant professional development.

To a large degree, the specific results of the program depend upon the individual efforts and level of commitment of the participants. Keep in mind that the time off between modules is an important part of the program, when each participant should follow the recommended “transfer suggestions” and draw upon the support of peers and trainers.

If you find that the training has not fulfilled your expectations, you may resign from the program at the end of Module 1, paying only $990US for that module.

Because of the vast amount of material presented, refunds will not be issued to anyone after we have advanced beyond Module 1.Sylvia Becker-Hill
