  3. 3. A Quick Review  A crisis is about to hit the country and the whole of the developed world with thousands of people needing support in the areas of mental health, weight loss and fitness and addiction  If no support is offered then the consequences will be severe in terms of mental and physical misery and cost to society.  Most people struggling with these issues would benefit from the attention of fully trained professionals but here are not enough resources to provide this support to everyone  Techniques like CBT have proved the value of ‘mindful’ approaches to problems  Coaching, like CBT, can be applied to help people to develop new life habits and improve mental health.Bob Griffiths Associates 10/15/12 3

One SolutionBuild Coaching Communities supported by E-Coaching Train a cohort of volunteers who are able and willing to learn basic coaching skills Provide them with coaching software to bolster their skills Provide a means of connecting them to clients Use the in-built recording facility in the software to provide support and supervision on their coaching skills Use gamification to encourage participation and learning Train a cohort to be trainers, have them train others and cascade the process to others

  14. 14. Problem -Lack of Trained Coaches! • Takes many years to train a coach effectively • Many people who want to help are daunted by the time commitment and cost of training • Trained coaches generally will not offer their services at the sort of rates that the general population can afford • There is a limit of geographical spread and reach of coaches working face to face • There is no way to connect the people who need help with those willing to provide it.CoachMaster (UK) Lrd. 10/15/12
