our philosophy

Coaching is about helping people fulfill their full potential. Helping people live more passionate lives is a key foundation principle behind all Worklife Solutions’ services. We are passionate about helping people gain greater satisfaction and joy from their lives. Our primary aim is to equip people like you that want to join us in our mission with the skills you need to do so. If you are passionate about helping people we’d love to be part of your success.

The best way to learn to coach is to combine action and reflection. Our programs offer both! We provide specific training in the underlying theory of best practice coaching principles and practices, combined with actual hands-on practice doing coaching. Work with our powerful FastTrack!™, Solution-Focused coaching methodology that focuses on delivering powerful results for people quickly and holistically.

As coaches, we believe the client has the answers they need within them. Professional facilitation and the timely suggestion of new ideas and creative exploration by the coach reveals these answers so the client can act upon them. The Worklife Solutions Coach Institute’s philosophy of career development and life coaching, as well as our Fast Track! ™ coaching model, is based on these core principles.

Our “Free To Be Me™” and “Passion Driven Work™” coaching programs have helped our clients discover who they are, who they want to be and what makes them tick. Train to be a coach, live your passion and help people too.

Learn with New Zealand’s most experienced and qualified change expert—Cassandra Gaisford

“I had come across Worklife Solutions (Cassandra) as a training provider back in 2014 but just wasn’t sure at that time.  Decided on another education provider which has provided me with a foundation in coaching but last year realised that I wanted more discussions regarding putting sessions together, evaluating and discussing this with a mentor and someone whom had been walking the talk for a long time.   This was not provided by the previous education provider. The above factors influenced me to contact Cassandra again.  I was looking for a different type of training, wanting someone who has such a solid background in coaching and whom could offer more input regarding sessions planning and feedback, starting a business etc. I’ve now realised my dream!”

“The one on one mentoring was what really sold me.”

“I have always been passionate about empowering and motivating others and when I learned about life coaching as a career I knew it was something I was being drawn to pursue. As you can imagine, a google search for life coaching courses brought up hundreds of providers all with their own content of what they believed life coaching to be.

I was lucky enough to come across Worklife Solutions and their Certified Life Coaching Course. I sent through an email requesting information as I had through other providers, but was pleasantly surprised when I received a response from Cassandra and not someone employed to help with enrolments/course advice, I found her to be very warm and helpful in answering all my questions. As a mum and student I was looking for flexibility, content that would really help me develop my skills and confidence as a life coach, a personalised approach and for me to be able to learn from someone who not only has the skills and qualifications in the field of Life Coaching but tons of experience too.

The one on one mentoring was what really sold me as I will not have to contend with a large group of other students. And will be able to use that time to perfect the skills I learn in a way that some online courses could never assist. I am confident that with this course alongside with Cassandra’s mentoring that I am on my way to my dream career as a life coach.”

“I was looking for a credible trainer and a life coach training programme that was flexible, personalised and a base from which I could become accredited with the International Coaching Federation. Cassandra and the programme she offered ticked all the boxes for me.

Working with me individually, Cassandra was able to specifically tailor the training modules around my particular skill set. This resulted in less time being wasted in areas of my strength and more time being given to the areas of required development. I was able to work through the modules at my own pace and the sessions with Cassandra both cemented the learning and modelled to me the art of coaching.

Cassandra is an outstanding coach and her enthusiastic professionalism brought the theory of coaching to life. She walks the talk! She also respects the particular vision and values of her clients. 

The training session that stands out most in my mind took place over a cup of tea in the Langham Hotel in Auckland. It was there that the name for my coaching business naturally emerged as the result of my answers to some very well placed questions. A ‘eureka’ moment was reached and the domain name was secured there and then.

Significant Lives was born; a coaching business that is a great reflection of who I am and my vision for the kind of coaching role I want to play.

I will always be grateful to Cassandra for giving me the perfect start and warmly recommend her to anyone wanting to explore life coaching as a career.”

Clive Wilson, EAP and Corporate Coach

“Well, life after the course has been exhilarating and fast-moving! I meet with my first ‘client’ today to help her pioneer the way forward with goal setting and soul-searching. It was quite funny how it happened as she had found out that I had just finished the course and so came directly to me to ask if I could coach her. . . so she is my first client. I also have another 3 lined up- which is fantastic. I took away a lot of things from the course and have gained useful tools to help pioneer my own future and that of itself is an excitement. Things are beginning to form and my passion is beginning to manifest. Thanks, heaps!”
