Empowerment equals choice. When you take away choice, you take away empowerment. When you think you have no choice, you disempower yourself.

Empowerment Coaching is a powerful tool to help anyone who may have gone through trauma or has gotten complacent, uncertain, and feels “stuck” or unsure of her next steps. Through a series of specific questions, processes, meditations, and interventions, the coach shifts the client into a more empowered place where they can look at the same dilemma or challenge from a higher perspective to make a more empowered decision.

Clients express profound joy at how much lighter, happier, more definite, and confident they feel after their empowerment coaching session.

Empowerment Coaching was coined and created by our founder Crystal Andrus Morissette in 2005, long before anyone else used the term. Empowerment Coaching is a unique process, exclusive to the S.W.A.T. Institute, that allows a client to rise higher in their perspective, to be more emotionally aware, and energetically stronger. In fact, Google ranks us as the #1 Empowerment Coaching school worldwide! We have students in over 45 countries and all 7 continents.

 



 

Please note: The course start date has since been changed to

Monday, May 6th, 2019 rather than Monday, April 15, 2019, as mentioned in this video. 

 



The Personal Empowerment Coach Certification is for any woman of any age, nationality, or culture, who can speak and write in English, and who has a passion for empowering others, particularly women, and who wants to learn better skills including effective listening, empowered communication, conflict resolution, boundary setting, fierce negotiation, strategizing, and personal empowerment. This course is for any woman who wants to not only improve her own life; she wants to develop the confidence to better empower others and to evoke change, all while being apart of a global movement and sisterhood of women who are movers and shakers in their lives and industries.

The curriculum is at a college-level; however, we have women with no post-secondary education as well as those with their Ph.D. or Doctorate taking our courses and graduating. Our professors and team are all very committed to our students’ learning process and success.

A commitment of 5-15 hours a week is required as a full-time student, while 10-15 hours a month is considered part-time studies, plus a financial investment is necessary to purchase your books and for the cost of tuition. You have up to 12 months to complete this program. This graduating class in on target to complete the curriculum within four months and then with the Mentorship Coaching included, to graduate within six months.

 





Learning Objectives for Module One:

The learning objective of the first module is to introduce the students to Empowerment Coaching and the basic tools of this specific coaching method. In this module, students will be invited to master the basic framework of Empowerment Coaching which includes:

  1. The Map of Empowerment
  2. The Concept of Coaching from the Body, Not from the Head

This module takes the students in detail through the most crucial emotional levels on the Map of Empowerment such as Shame, Guilt, Apathy, Grief, Fear, Desire, Anger, Pride, Courage and Neutrality and offers specific coaching strategies and interventions for each of these levels.

Module One offers a vast opportunity for the students to listen to practical examples of “real life” coaching sessions, which is an invaluable component of the program. Also included are video lectures on each emotional level, two live weekly calls where students can chat with their professors, and a private Facebook Group for fellow “student empowerment coaches” to share, connect, and support each other.

 


Learning Objective of Module Two:

The objective of the second module is to build on the foundations laid out in Module One so that the students can further hone and expand their coaching skills.

This module also incorporates some of the more general topics in coaching such as how to structure the coaching sessions or how to build rapport with a client.

The aim of Module Two is also to prepare the students for some unexpected or more challenging circumstances in coaching such as coaching a client with a different cultural background or a client that has just lost someone they loved.

By the end of this module, students should have already participated in a 12-Week Emotional Edge Telecourse taught by Crystal Andrus Morissette in order to integrate their learnings, personally. This course is mandatory in graduating.

 


Learning Objective of Module Three:

The objective of the last module is to have the students do their own coaching and practice all the skills and techniques they have learned throughout the course while coaching their own clients. The clients will be provided by the S.W.A.T. Institute through the Mentorship Program that enables women from any part of the world to get free coaching. This is a beautiful opportunity for our students to hone their coaching skills.

Section 1: What you need to do to start your Practice Coaching

The objective of this section is to cover the logistics side of the coaching practice so that the coaches in training have everything set up and ready before they start their practice coaching.

Section 2: The Critique session

As soon as students have completed approximately half of their practice sessions (10-15 practice session), they select three of their calls and submit them to their Professor of Coaching who will review them and schedule a critique session with them. The objective of the critique session is to give them feedback on how they have been doing thus far.

Section 3: Final Exam Assignment

The objective of the Final Exam is to put everything together for the students – both the practical as well as the theoretical side of the training. In order to do that, they are required to:

  1. Submit another set of their coaching calls
  2. Answer a set of questions about Empowerment Coaching

Students who are currently in our January 2019 PECC graduating class recently shared these amazing testimonials:

 

Signing up for the S.W.A.T. Personal Empowerment Coach Certification (PECC) is the best thing I have done for myself personally as well as professionally. I signed up to become a coach, to better my skills and learn to be a better mentor, coach and teacher. What I didn’t expect was that I was also signing up to become a better me. Crystal has the ability to enter your heart space and gently navigate a path of growth not only professionally but personally as well. Not only do I feel prepared to build my business, but I feel prepared to live as my truest self, and I think that brings the two together. A good coach can only be as good as their truest self. Thank you Crystal and all the people at SWAT that gave so much to the learning process.

Synchronicity guided my way to Crystal Andrus Morrissette and her Personal Empowerment Coach Certification, and I am so glad that I listened. This program ended up being as much about helping to heal the wounded part of myself as it did about learning to coach other people. During each lesson I found myself thinking how much the women in the sample calls sounded like me. Their story was my story. For the first time I didn’t feel alone and that I could release my story. This program provided me with the courage and structure that I needed to pursue my dreams. Thank you for this program!

This Personal Empowerment Coach Certification program came at exactly the right time! I have wanted to do coach training for years and years and now, not only am I doing it, I’m going through the empowerment process and experiencing the MOST. AMAZING. TRANSFORMATION. that goes beyond my wildest dreams. The classes, the materials, teachers, and the team are BRILLIANT. This process shifts us massively and I’m in awe! I know the outcome is yet to reveal itself but I’m sure it goes beyond where I can even envision myself at this time.

Empower has been the resonating word for me for such a long time – a ‘fire in the proverbial belly’ – and when I looked into insurance cover for my workshops, I was told that I had to have empowerment certification. How the ‘hell’ do I get that I asked myself and so the search began. I only had to type in empowerment certification and the S.W.A.T. Institute appeared. Reading more, I was entranced and then having the discovery session with the creator Crystal Andrus Morissette, my decision was made. No hesitation and Crystal was so beautifully encouraging and supportive – no “snake oil’ sales received…… just the truth and inspiration. As I have travelled through the training, and receiving the never-ending support and guidance, I know that my decision and investment was truly inspired and accurate. It is very much about how you go through the experience yourself which greatly assists so much in the training to be the best empowerment coach that you can be! I LOVE each and every part of this course and it is so worth the personal journey. I would highly recommend anyone to embark onto this outstanding education and training – it makes so much sense, it is so very down to earth and the integrity as well as the encouragement is phenomenal! I am all about Empowerment Coaching – we so need it in this chaotic, singular-minded world that we reside in, and in truth it just touches my soul!

I have been a fitness and nutrition coach for years, but I was looking to go deeper with my clients for real, lasting change and lifelong transformations that stick for the client. I searched for a very long time, but ‘therapy’ or psychology-based coaching didn’t appeal to me. I put it out to the Universe, and Crystal’s Personal Empowerment Coach Certification program came across my radar. That was it! It has been the greatest program I have ever taken; not just as a coach but as someone who was desiring her own healing. It is such a pleasure to support clients in a deeper and more profound way, creating lasting change in their lives, while healing Self. It is a gift and a pleasure to be partaking in this extraordinary course. Every woman should consider this course. It will help (and indeed is) heal the world.

When I turned 50, something had changed. Up to that point, I was pretty sure where my path was going and I knew my limits…but, my best laid plans kinda got stuck in the copier. I always loved engaging with others, and I loved being creative, and the energy that came from it all…after all, I had built a professional singing career from this! But there was still something missing. Deep down, I knew there were still old, useless messages that had been buried, and were holding me back. They needed to be acknowledged and released.

I had searched for a long time for a coaching program that I felt would address these emotional blocks, but most programs were very text-book based, formulated, and clinical. I felt they lacked a sense of individuality and they seemed purely profit-driven, rather than results-driven. Then I came across the Personal Empowerment Coach Certification (PECC) program through the SWAT Institute.

PECC gets right to the emotional heart of where we as humans are resonating, for different reasons and different seasons. It gives the student and the coach a safe and steady roadmap for navigating the complex nuances of deep emotional states that can keep us stagnated, preventing us from moving through life, giving ourselves a chance to be better. Even when we don’t know it.

PECC uses a combination of teaching tools such as listening skills, picking up conversational patterns, and non-verbal cues; profound reading resources; weekly live calls with Crystal to review the material and have deep discussions around it; challenging and thought-provoking weekly assignments; actual practice time coaching real people, putting those concepts to work, and helping others.

When I thought I was signing up only to heal myself, it turns out that I am adding coaching to my toolbox as a profession, too. If this last part scares you, don’t let it – as you explore this program, you’ll know more and more, you are made for this.

What is the Difference between Life Coaching and Empowerment Coaching?

Life Coaching: This more often than not focuses on specific parts of the client’s lives and helps improve those super particular areas. They identify the obstacles and they help the client set goals to accomplish results. It is ‘to-do’ oriented.

Personal Empowerment Coaching: It identifies the emotional state that the clients are in and helps them elevate to the emotion or ‘energy’ of where they want to be in so that they can make better choices from a more empowered place, and to attract what they want. It’s a lot more encompassing than life coaching.

 



How much does an Empowerment Coach earn?

If you are thinking of becoming a coach, you probably want to know how much money can you earn? Empowerment Coaching is gaining respect as a profession and is perhaps one of the most expanding industries, in part because of economic uncertainty, forced career changes, and drastic efforts of businesses to make their operations efficient and productive.

To illustrate that growth, consider these statistics: In the year 2012, there were approximately 47,500 professional coaches at work that bring in a combined $2 billion in revenue. By the year 2016, it is hereby estimated that there are presently approximately 53,300 professional coach practitioners worldwide. Western Europe accounts for the largest share (35%), followed closely by North America, with an estimated 33% share. You can read a summary of the 2016 study here.

As an industry, coaching is thriving!

As business owners, coaches set their own rates and those rates vary widely. According to the Coach Federation’s 2016 Global Study, the average North American income is $61,900 USD. Standard hourly rates for coaches coming out of a certification program are $100-$150 per hour, but those can be higher depending on the coach’s background, other expertise and location. Crystal Andrus Morissette currently charges $499 / hour for coaching. See her personal website, here.

How many hours will I need to commit each week to stay on track for completing the course in 3 months?

If you can commit to 5-15 hours a week (depending on your learning speed), you should have no problem keeping up.

 

What if I fall behind on lessons? 

No worries, you can always go at your own pace as you have up to 12 months to complete the course.

 

Is there a required book list?

Yes, there are four books you’ll need to purchase. Click here for the book list.

 

Is the S.W.A.T. Institute certified with the International Coaching Federation (ICF)?

No, the S.W.A.T. Institute is not certified with the ICF simply because of one reason: We are over certified. We offer too many recordings and access to replays of real coaching calls, along with lectures and accompanying videos.

We are, however, under the designation of the American Association of Drugless Practitioners. And upon graduation, our students may apply.
