Message from Marilyn Atkinson – Our Founder
At any given moment in history, at particular locations on the planet, a few specific people and groups can be identified as being on the cutting edge of thought and skills, doing the most advanced work of the time in vitally important areas. Erickson Coaching International is one of these advanced learning centers. In chaotic times, education must include the skills of leadership and vision. It must include practical methods for bringing visions and values into reality in daily approaches to problem resolution. It must include training in the abilities to utilize events that look like failures as power boosters towards reinventing excellence. It must include a deep understanding of the courage and vulnerability required to lead a distinguishing life. Erickson Coaching International was founded on a number of empowering models of consciousness which express the intrinsically whole and self-healing qualities of a human being. Solution-Focused Coach training provides a vision and methodology based on these models. This offers students and clients a direct path to shift communication and creativity paradigms quickly, while encouraging individuals toward their creative frontiers. These models, combined with a deep belief in the human growth potential, represent a specific and detailed map of human behavior and relationship, and consequently offer extremely effective pathways for personal, organizational and community expansions. Every program at Erickson implicitly embeds transformation and accelerated learning within the course content. Students are challenged towards dynamic self-improvement and contribution in the world as ownership is gained over the knowledge. Through this challenge, leadership ability is the fundamental result.
“The world that we have made as a result of the level of thinking we have done thus far, creates problems we cannot solve at the same level at which we created them.”– Albert Einstein
