WHAT DOES THE PHASE II MENTORSHIP OFFER?

Phase I of the ALTIS Mentorship program provided the framework of the 'ALTIS Coaching Essentials.'
Our purpose in Phase II is to ensure you are prepared with the best skills and attributes for you to manage career changing decisions: Decisions you face as you meet a number of 'Crossroads' in your coaching career
These skills and attributes were identified, by coaches like you, as missing from their formal education.
Moreover, sports performance employers say these six abilities are exactly what they are looking for, and are often lacking in coaches trying to get to the next level.
On this journey you take the steps in evaluating what you really need, and making sense of how it will help you as you approach a career crossroads. You will find yourself with a group of similarly proactive coaches, with whom we hope you will connect and develop relationships to help you on your coaching journey.
By the end of Phase II, we are confident you will have what it takes to make the right choices whether you are approaching, or sitting, at a career crossroads.
No. While we offer suggested routes for completion, you are free to take as little or as long as you like to complete this program. It can be entirely self-paced if that is your preferred route.
While we recommend you start at Phase I if you are at the beginning of your career, you can of course dive straight into Phase II if you are facing a crossroads in your career.
Completing Phase I and/or Phase II is a bonus asset when it comes to applying for the hotly contested places in Coach Pfaff's Phase III Mentorship.
The ALTIS Mentorship is for coaches that want to discover their version of great coaching and navigate their path to it. Working with expert coaches and supported by your peer community, you will become a more effective decision maker, enhancing your ability to manage increasingly complex problems.
These skills will not only influence how and who you coach, but will provide you with the tactics you need to confidently navigate your career.
Mentorship focuses on execution and practice, while our courses focus on science, knowledge, and understanding.
Mentorship is a relationship in which a more experienced or more knowledgeable person helps to guide a less experienced or less knowledgeable person. It is the cornerstone to develop expertise in a profession.
Without a good mentor, a coach will never fully develop their skills.
It seems the most popular way to develop 'expertise' is through courses and seminars. While these methods can give you insight into the component-parts of coaching - they don't show you how to coach.
Coaching courses are akin to watching sports highlights shows.
They show you all the interesting pieces, but they don't show you how they all fit together. Of course, you can figure this out on your own - by 'just coaching', but there's a far more efficient and effective way: the guidance of a good mentorship program, led by great mentors who can show you how all the pieces fit together.
As with all ALTIS Programs and Courses, if you aren't satisfied with the Phase II Mentorship upon completion, you can take advantage of our 30 day, money back guarantee.
We provide this assurance because we are so confident that our resources can, and will, help you.
