What is COR.E Dynamics?

COR.E Dynamics is a proprietary process created by iPEC that provides a systematic approach to creating optimized performance, wellbeing, leadership, and transitions in all areas of life.

Training in the advanced coaching methodology of COR.E Dynamics is available only to iPEC graduates and only through the COR.E Dynamics program. The program is based on the belief that every action you take in life is a performance, and maximizing the energy of one’s performances will lead to reaching one’s current potential. In addition, an underlying tenet of the program is that, through raising overall energy, current potential energy can be increased, leading to greater, more effective performances and results.

The advanced knowledge that you will learn in this program will provide you with niche expertise and the ability to coach your clients through a guided process on how to create their comprehensive and sustainable game plan, leverage key influencers that enhance or detract from their performance energy, unleash their highest potential and performance, and — most importantly — how to show up when it matters most, adjust on the fly, and optimize their outcomes and experiences.

In addition, the included marketing materials and the business development aspect of the program will enable you to grow your coaching business.

Who can enroll in COR.E Dynamics?

If you have completed Mod III, you qualify to take the program. Recent iPEC graduates, long-time graduates, and students who just completed Mod III will all find the program to be extremely valuable.

How will I practice coaching, ask questions, and connect with my peers?

There are live monthly webinars where you can hear lessons, see demos, ask questions, and participate in exercises so that you can get live interaction and get CCEUs for the ICF.

You will also have access to a private online forum where you can ask questions between classes. This area is facilitated by our Masters Team as well as COR.E Dynamics Specialists and experts. In this forum, you’ll be able to ask questions, request resource help, discuss concepts, and share ideas.

What printed materials will I receive and when will I receive them?

You will receive a hard copy of your COR.E Dynamics Specialist manual for the specific niche you choose during enrollment. If you sign up for more than one niche, you will receive Specialist manuals for each niche for which you’ve registered. Shipping of the manual(s) takes approximately 14 days.

Can I take participate in more than one niche?

Yes! Upon enrollment, you will have access to the classes for all niches. Your enrollment includes certification in one niche.

If you would like to complete your certification for more than one niche, you must purchase an additional certification track; the price is $100 per additional niche. This purchase will provide you a manual for the additional niche and review of your final project (to receive your certification).

What is the estimated amount of time I will be investing to complete the program?

The on-demand webinars are two (2) hours in length, plus the eight (8) niche-specific recordings which are approximately 45 minutes to one hour each. Most of our students spend approximately 2-5 hours on the final project, once they’ve completed the training.

You may work at your own pace to complete the webinars and niche recordings, as well as complete your final project.

What is the price for the program?

After you complete the program requirements, you will receive email notification that you may begin using the designation.

What are the program completion requirements?

Attending/listening to the twelve (12) course webinars and the eight (8) niche-specific recordings, and then completing an online form for each presentation, demonstrating that you’ve listened to the material for all twenty (20) course recordings. Additionally, the completion of a final project is required in order to receive your designation.

What is the SCOPE™ assessment and who can offer it?

SCOPE™ is iPEC’s latest assessment. Unlike the Energy Leadership™ Index assessment, which looks at overall energy, SCOPE measures energy in the moment toward a specific task and identifies which factors (spiritual, mental, emotional, physical, social, and/or environmental) are creating the current energy state. SCOPE also gives interventions that can be used in the moment to shift energy to higher levels. Monitored over time, this assessment reveals the patterns and tendencies that promote optimal performance.  Click here to read more about SCOPE.

The only way to learn and be able to use the SCOPE assessment at this time is through the COR.E Dynamics program.

How else will taking the COR.E Dynamics program help me?

An important component of the graduate programs to date has been the opportunity to connect and collaborate with a larger group of like-minded coaches. Many past participants have taken their energy, their businesses, and their lives, to a different level. It’s spawned partnerships, collaborative workshops, masterminds, co-operative business models, and more.

Do I get CCEUs for doing this program?

Yes! If you hold an ICF credential (ACC, PCC, or MCC), you need twenty-four (24) hours of ICF Core Competency CCEUs and sixteen (16) hours of Resource Development, every three years. The monthly calls offer 1 Core Competency CCEU each. The recorded calls can fulfill all 16 Resource Development hours.

When can I start using COR.E Dynamics with paying clients?

As soon as you’re comfortable with the COR.E Dynamics methodology! For most, that’s about halfway through the program.

If I’m working with clients prior to completing the program, what can I call myself?

There are several possible options, including COR.E Dynamics Specialist in Training or a Leadership/Performance/Wellbeing/Transitions Coach. If you’re unsure, check with us during a live Q&A webinar.

What is the cost of the client materials?

Printed client workbooks created by us for you to deliver the CPD, CWD, CLD, and CTD client materials will be available to you for purchase upon the completion of the program. There are three client workbooks for each niche — COR.E Foundations, COR.E Influencers, and COR.E Disciplines. Right now, those are priced at $35 per workbook or $100 for a set of all three. Upon certification, you will be licensed to download professionally designed PDFs at no cost. Finally, materials for the Performance, Leadership, and Wellbeing niches are currently available on the Coaching Campus, a platform run by Innovate-a-way, one of iPEC’s strategic alliance partners. Material for the Transitions niche will be added to the Coaching Campus at a later date if there is a demand for it. Pricing for the Coaching Campus is available here.

Can I withdraw from the program after signing up and paying?

There are no refunds once you have started the program.

What is Live Lead Play and what LLP benefits will COR.E Dynamics students get?

Live Lead Play is iPEC’s multimedia publishing platform (SEO play) and directory. COR.E Dynamics students will be able to promote their expertise by blogging, podcasting, video-casting (hangouts)—whatever media is best for you. COR.E Dynamics students are premiere contributors. As we build it up, this site will not just publish the articles, podcasts, videos, etc., but will also distribute them through an array of social media and online outlets.

As part of LLP, we will be creating and promoting open-to-the-public programs and products developed from the graduate content to build the brand and awareness of what we do. COR.E Dynamics students will receive the leads from those programs.

There is also a directory aspect to LLP. COR.E Dynamics students will be prominently featured in the directory, with your designation(s) listed to give you additional credibility and visibility in your niche.

How will you find clients for us?

We see the opportunity to work together with the Masters Division students and participants to generate larger scale opportunities through which we can partner and open up much more work for qualified coaches.

Lastly, we and our partners will create online programs that can be promoted through the Live Lead Play vehicle. The goal is to drive awareness, visibility, and credibility of the iPEC brand (i.e., the community, the framework, and the method; not the school) so that the programs generate significant work and coaches are needed across the board to fulfill that work.

What partnership opportunities are available?

Partnership at the high level means that we’re looking to work in tightly aligned relationships with our Masters Division students and participants (and our community, too) for our collective/mutual gain. It might be around the co-development of new programs/materials; it could be a bigger organizational opportunity that is too big for one coach to handle; it could be strategic partnerships for either promotion or access to additional materials, etc. We are looking for win-win-win type gains for the whole Masters Division community. We have proven that when we work with our graduates, not only do we win, but the graduates make a lot more money and have a broader impact than they would on their own.
