BOULDER CREEK, CA (January 26, 2015) — HeartMath® LLC, a leading developer in heart intelligence, today announced its collaboration with the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching (iPEC), a top-rated coach training school dedicated to driving human performance and potential. This partnership brings together two proven methodologies and organizations and their innovative tools, principles, and industry certifications to develop masterful coaches and leading industry experts.
For over two decades, HeartMath has zeroed in on all aspects of heart rate variability (HRV) and heart coherence. Through its research-based technologies, HeartMath is committed to empowering people to bring out their best selves in their personal, social, and professional lives via its Coach/Mentor and Trainer Certification Programs. Through the concepts of stress resiliency, emotional self-regulation, and optimal performance training, HeartMath has set the stage for individuals to become an expert in the mind-body-emotion connection, while guiding their clients to sustainable new behaviors (i.e. better decision making and problem solving, increased creativity and wellbeing, and improved cognitive performance.)
“We’ve wanted to connect the right partner to provide coaching skills training for our people,” said Howard Martin, Executive Vice President of HeartMath LLC. “Our criterion was to find a partner that would complement our mission and values while providing additional coaching skills for those who are becoming certified in the HeartMath programs. We feel we’ve found this with iPEC. Both organizations are deeply committed to helping people and to creating a better world. iPEC is extremely good at what they do – their programs are second to none when it comes to the skills required to be, not just a good coach, but a great coach.”
iPEC’s robust Coach Training Program certifies coaches in up to eight different disciplines and is powered by COR.E Dynamics™, a proprietary methodology that focuses on and reveals who an individual is at his or her core, helping that individual create change from the “inside out.” Scrupulously accredited by the International Coach Federation (ICF), and founded on more than 10,000 hours of research and application with roots in psychotherapy, Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), quantum physics, metaphysics, adult and accelerated learning theories, emotional intelligence, and leadership development, the program addresses the very basis of change (clearing blocks, challenging thoughts and fears, and understanding the power of choice) helping individuals achieve extraordinary results in their lives, careers, and businesses. In addition, iPEC’s proven Business Development System teaches the intricacies of building a successful coaching practice covering outer strategies such as branding/marketing and message development, giving graduates the most comprehensive and well-rounded education in the industry.
“iPEC is excited to be working alongside the HeartMath team, especially when you look at the shared mission between us – helping people live with purpose, strength, and heart,” said Luke Iorio, President & CEO, iPEC Coaching. “We are amazed by the science and forethought that enables HeartMath’s tools and applications to navigate an individual toward their best self. Their program complements any coach and/or consultant who is looking to add to their skills set combining theoretical concepts with tangible results. It’s all in their name – HeartMath is a true innovator for the enrichment of humanity.”
Combining the respected track records – HeartMath’s life-changing Coach/Mentor and Trainer Certification Programs and iPEC’s unsurpassed coaching, wellbeing, and leadership development programs – paves the way for a complementary alliance, one dedicated to raising the consciousness of the world on a national and global scale.
