Source Point Training is proud to announce the genesis class of 24 Professional Performance Coaches in Mexico City this weekend.

"Rising demand is not only coming from corporations, but from individuals who want a higher level of productivity in the workplace and a greater sense of satisfaction from their work. This rise in demand is fueled by multiple reports that show how effective professional executive coaching really is," according to Barbara Fagan, co-founder of Source Point Training (

Many international training companies are now turning to coach training organizations in the United States to add value to their existing professional training programs. LeadLife, in Mexico City, offers trainings to empower people to take on new levels of commitment and accountability to create greater success. Through a newly formed partnership with Source Point Training, LeadLife now offers Source Point Training’s Fundamentals of Performance Coaching training to their clients. Their first class of coaches will complete this weekend, June 16th with 24 Professional Performance Coach graduates.

There is a stronger case than ever for offering employee coaching in the workplace, according to new research conducted by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) based in the UK. The report, entitled “Taking the Temperature of Coaching,” highlights coaching as a cornerstone of high performance that focuses on the professional development of individual employees.

Recent studies indicate that organizations that use professional coaching reported a median return on investment of seven times their initial investment, according to the ICF Global Coaching Studies conducted by PricewaterhouseCoopers and Association Resource Centre, Inc.

"Coaching continues to be important in maintaining high performance and developing more agile employees, work practices and organizations [sic]," says Dr. John McGurk, adviser for learning and talent at CIPD. According to a new report from the Aberdeen Group, businesses that invest in employee training tend to reap the benefits in terms of improved engagement and retention levels.

“Companies with a coaching culture have a proven record of higher levels of employee engagement. There is no better time than now to develop these skills as competition for recruiting and retaining the best talent becomes more competitive as businesses recover and expand. Fagan shares “As leaders in the coach training industry, we certify our coaches as Performance Coaches because we understand that this is the where coaching is headed - coaching higher levels of personal and professional performance.”

At Source Point Training, we teach our coaches the ground of being performance coaches which is ontological. This means that as we are coaching on particular outcomes, we are also seeing all the interdependences and what will change as a result of achieving a desired outcome.

"In order to be effective today, we cannot live our life in a set of compartments" says Fagan. "The way that our world is changing, we see more and more the cross over between work, play, family, friends and business associates."

In Fundamentals of Performance Coaching, we equip each participant with knowledge, skills and abilities to become a professional performance coach. Fagan is proud that the ICF has approved their curriculum for 84.5 CCE units. This provides coaches with the training requirements to apply for the Associate Certified Coach (ACC) credential with ICF. Source Point Training now offers Open Enrollment for their coach training held annually in Phoenix, AZ.
