ALEKSANDER TEISSEYRE BIO
I started coaching in 2008. To date, I have coached my clients for 1000 hours approx.
In the years 2009-2010, I went through formal coaching training in Canada, where I completed a comprehensive Integral Coaching® course and became credentialed as Integral Master Coach™. The program included 200 hours of teaching, coaching under the supervision and the final public exam. This program is accredited by the International Coach Federation, which made it possible for me to join ICF at a later date.
In 2012 I was credentialed by ICF as Associate Certified Coach.
In 2015 I was credentialed again, this time as Professional Certified Coach (PCC). This required 750 registered coaching hours and a comprehensive online exam.
In 2018 I renewed my credentials based on meeting the continuing education requirements. At the same time, I continued to meet the requirements of Integral Coaching Canada and I am in good standing as Integral Master Coach ™.
I found his way to coaching through psychological studies and my work as a psychotherapist, group trainer, author of courses and leader of personal development groups.
I worked in three countries and I am practically bilingual (Polish, English). During my long stay in Australia, I completely turned around my career from technical to people-oriented.
This gives me versatility, access to multiple perspectives and ease in coaching people with different backgrounds. Many of my coaching clients are managers and organizational leaders.
I graduated from the University of Technology (Electronics) in Poland. I later migrated to Australia, where I continued to develop my career in engineering, working for companies like IBM and Alcatel.In parallel, I studied at Macquarie University in Sydney. I graduated as a BA in Psychology. In addition to formal qualifications in psychology, I pursued qualifications in psychotherapy, group leadership, and training.
Since my return to Poland in 2002, I deepened my experience in psychology and psychotherapy. I co-operated with the Institute of Psychoimmunology, where I conducted psychotherapy sessions, stress management and soft skills training for managers, and coaching.
My practice of coaching combines my extensive experience in supporting human development with a thorough knowledge of the integral approach. This approach (based on Ken Wilber’s Integral Theory) serves as a “map” which makes it easier to understand the client’s needs. At the same time, my approach to coaching is pragmatic. I favor techniques that lead to immediate improvement in client’s skill, and I believe each coaching session should bring a tangible gain to the client.
I am the author of personal development and leadership development programs. I write articles on the integral approach and presents these topics at conferences.
