Without Coach Julius and Benchmark, I would never have become a professional coach!

When I was at a low point in both my career and personal life, Coach Julius introduced me to how life-changing coaching can be. I didn’t need a lot of convincing because it simply WORKED!

And when the chance to become a professionally trained coach came up, I felt the urge to pay it forward and enter a new phase in my life, from broadcasting to coaching. Both professions offered opportunities for service and I took the opportunity. It’s been three years and I’ve never regretted a single day!

  • Cultivation – the training helped me cultivate my own strengths and recognize others strengths as well. The coaching class taught me how to look for opportunities and maximize someone’s potential.
  • Redefine and change of paradigm – after the training, I was more aware of how I can pivot myself to think differently. This way of thinking allowed me to help others as well to think differently

My description of our training:

Half of the ACTP program I was in was face-to-face and the other half was the first done online. I would say that face-to-face was still a lot better but Benchmark did an excellent job running the program that it was a huge success. It did not feel like a training program but more of an immersion.

The program allowed me to know myself better towards establishing myself as a coach. Consistent with what coaching is about, Benchmark was a thinking partner during the course. The team made me feel comfortable to open up, appreciate and absorb the coaching process. There were profound and fun activities both during the onsite sessions and the online ones. On top of all these, I made some amazing friends who’ve been very supportive to my startup coaching practice as well as through these trying times.

My description of our training:
Benchmark Consulting played an integral part in my career as a leader in my almost 10 years with Alveo Land. Through company sponsored team buildings and coaching sessions, I discovered my love for coaching and how this is an important tool to reach ones fullest potential. This was why in 2019, I personally invested in my certification as a professional coach through their Accelerated Coach Training Program. Part of the program was the 5-day classroom session. I was really impressed with Master Coach Julius’ technical knowledge of coaching but I was more amazed on how he does it so naturally. Being with him and his team in a class made me feel so at home. Sharing insights and skills with like-minded individuals was such a fun and memorable experience.

My description of our training:
I will describe my ACTP with Benchmark Consulting in 3 aspects: thought-provoking, fun, and life-changing.
Thought-provoking: The program would strongly challenge you as an aspiring coach, bringing out the best in you.
Fun: It was memorable because of this element. For the Benchmark team, fun is integral to the entire experience.
Life-changing: I am able to use the fundamental skills and principles of what I learned even after years of practice.

My description of our training:
The Accelerated Coaching Training Program of Benchmark has truly helped me in various ways. First, it has given me the right structure in having the right coaching conversations. Second, It has provided a guide that is aligned with the ICF standards that truly helped me in asking questions even to young coachees such as children. Third, the program helped me discover how it is to truly listen in a coaching conversation – free from judgment! Lastly, I am grateful to the people I have met in Benchmark: the coaches, the classmates, and others I still continue to meet in seminars and programs.

Roseanne Lasa

My description of our training:

This course was tough and transformative. It gave me the opportunity to step back and evaluate my beliefs and practices in coaching. It was a humbling experience to fumble and struggle with the competencies that participants needed to demonstrate at mastery level. The mentorship of Marcia and Julius throughout the internship was nurturing as it inspired me to do my level best in learning to be a professional coach.

My key take away from the course was learning to demonstrate presence. It’s about going deep into the clients’ thoughts and disrupting their mental programs so that new perspectives may emerge. The best part is leaving clients better than you found them. I came out of the course empowered and excited to give the gift of coaching to my clients.

I am a graduate from the class of Jan 2015 in Singapore with Julius Ordonez. Even though I have been coaching others, I had a very fun and positive experience in the course.
