Bradley Ann Morgan and Stephan Marais of Walks Beside Coaching and Consulting
We believe that what you deeply care about is what you achieve, personally and professionally. It is not uncommon for individuals and organizational teams to have put what they care about on the ‘back burner’ as they pursue long term goals. At Walks Beside Coaching and Consulting we use our assessment tools, our business experience, and our leadership skills to help individuals, leaders, workforce teams, and government organizations to:
- Verify that all employees are following the same company vision and practicing their core values to achieve what they care about
- Regenerate an organizational culture where multiple generations can contribute without falling into resignation or resentment
- Revitalize the terms of accountability, dramatically improving the productivity of the workforce in every organization
- Assist individuals and teams with establishing their identity. The foundation of core values and how they affect identity impacts the outcome for the future, multi-generational integration, and sustaining a positive culture
- Open the space for conversations about taking action in innovative and creative ways without undue judgment or criticism

Why Hire an ICF Credentialed Coach?
Certification from the International Coach Federation (ICF) is extremely important when considering hiring a coach. Credentialing from the ICF is rigorous and stipulates that the coach:
- Has received professional training from a program specifically designed to teach coaching skills in alignment with the ICF Competencies
- Has demonstrated a proficient understanding and use of the coaching competencies as outlined by the ICF
- Is accountable to the ethics and standards set forth by the ICF
The ICF is a consortium of professional coaches and organizations that have joined under it’s auspices to shape and govern the profession of coaching. Many who call themselves coaches have not been formally trained in specific coaching skills that distinguish it from other professions and are transferring non coaching skill sets from other professions into their coaching. Often this results in an inadequate or ineffective coaching experience for clients.
In addition to the ‘practice hours’, certification includes written and oral exams and the agreement to adhere to the Code of Ethics established by the ICF.
Don’t be deceived to think any coach is a competent coach because they have other professional credentials or have established high fees.
The story of our logo:
The greater part of our heritage is from the Native Americans. We place an emphasis on the natural environment, all its relations, natural rhythms of the earth; and, the significance of color. Our logo holds colors that represent two states, red for fragmentation and purple for healing. We believe that as your coach, we will walk beside you as you transcend from what may be broken in your personal or professional life into that space which is restorative for you. From that place, your potential will be unleashed and your aspirations can be achieved.
