How many levels are there and what are the differences?
We have intentionally broken this certification into two levels so that you can get started coaching right away. Level one lets you quickly learn the curriculum and jump right into coaching your clients one-on-one with a detailed set of coaching notes. This helps you to feel confident about delivering the material immediately.
If you choose to do the Level I training the way we recommend, it will take you 18 weeks to work through the material. Or you can choose to do it more quickly. With Level II the program is personalized and has much more coaching from Beth and takes an additional six months to complete.
What CAN’T I use the certification for?
1. Market yourself as the “Incite Coaching Academy” or represent yourself as an agent of our company (i.e. you will be operating your own company under your own brand).
2. Make duplicate copies of our copyrighted material to give to or sell to others. The only materials that may be duplicated are located in the Incite Coaching™ membership site (you can see a list of duplicate-able materials in Appendix A below).
This protects both our intellectual property and the value of your certification. If one of your customers wants to become a certified incite coach, they can apply and purchase on our website. (this is why it’s a great idea to be a member of our affiliate program). See Question 14.
3. Include our materials in any of your recorded or published materials without separate written consent from our Corporation–Focused Attention Inc.™.This includes NOT incorporating our work into information products (i.e. recorded workshops, training programs, tip sheets, etc.) that you create for resale or to give away. Again, this protects our intellectual property and the value of your certification.
4. Publish Incite Coaching™ content on article directories or media channel such as social media, newspapers, magazines, ezinearticles.com, etc. (The reason for this is because if all Incite Coaches submitted the same article to a distribution site such as ezinearticles.com, we would violate their policies and would dilute the Incite Coach™ brand).
Feel free to use the bonus tips, articles and lead magnets with your own list (people who have opted in to receive information directly from you) but not for mass distribution.If you have a fabulous media opportunity and think some of our content can help you get exposure, contact us and we can put together a strategy to help you be successful.
5. Resell Incite Coaching™ materials directly. Materials may only be sold through our website. Use your affiliate link to earn a commission on your referrals! Create a certification program using any of our materials or train others to use our materials (i.e. train-the-trainer programs or certification programs).
If you own a facility and would like your employees to be able to use the Gibson Banning Method curriculum with your clients, please contact us directly at Support@InciteCoachingAcademy.com to discuss the possibilities. We are opened to collaborations/“joint venture” ideas, but these are all handled on a case-by-case basis.
How do I apply?
If we both determined this program is a good fit for you, then you will be offered the opportunity to become a certified Incite Coach™.
To find out whether this program is a good fit for you and your business, you can apply for a Clarity Session by signing up on our website at https://incitecoachingacademy.com/calendar (application form is at the bottom of that page).
How long does it take to become certified?
The Level I training take as little as 48 to 90 hours to complete or our recommended method is to participate weekly for 18 weeks. With that method your weekly time commitment would be approximately 3 to 5 hours a week.
You will be officially certified after you have completed the Incite Coaching™ Certification Training, completed all the quizzes and passed the Incite Coaching™ Certification Test with a minimum score of 75%.
Because both the training and the certification test can be accessed at any time, you can complete the certification within a few weeks or a few months – it’s completely up to you.
What type of training is provided?
The purpose of the training is to help you be successful with the curriculum and to help you jump-start your business. The level I training is broken into the pre-work and18 easy-to-digest online video sessions, each a little over an hour long.
Pre-work: The Foundation
What’s the point of creating a foundation? The Foundation creates a sturdy path to your success.
Here is what a foundation can do:
1. When you can see a big goal that fills you with excitement, your motivation is a given. You start out psyched, motivated, and inspired. If you fall off the rails, it is much easier to hop back on track.
2. A foundation creates clarity, so you can relax and enjoy the ride. You always know who’s doing what, what’s going to happen, and what you can expect from each module.
3. A foundation creates effective use of your time and money. You can feel confident that your money will be well spent. Your sessions are laid out step by step. You always know exactly where you are going, and where you will end up.
Some Benefits of The Pre-Work for You as a Coach:
- Get The 10 Agreements for Successful Stress-Free Coaching.
- Instantly demonstrate the #1 Value of Long-Term Coaching.
- Master the keys to motivating your clients so they stay with you longer and get better results.
Session 1 – 6: The D-armoring Process
Sessions 1- 6 offer you a gentle, yet fast path to prepare for deep coaching. You will begin to loosen your death grip on your old thought patterns, defenses, and default emotions that keep you endlessly spinning your wheels.
Our old opinions, feelings, and brain patterns frequently sabotage or derail the coaching process. No longer.
Sessions 1- 6 gently help release this conditioning so that you relax, and can now see exciting new choices that were previously invisible to you.
Some benefits of sessions 1- 6 for you as a coach
- Eliminate the Know-It-All syndrome, Victim Mentality, and other client traps.
- Discover how to relax years of your client’s defensive behavior in just 6 weeks.
- Learn to activate your client’s innate healing power.
Session 7 – 12: The Compass to Abundance
Here we start to uncover the deeper desires beneath your wants. Once you uncover these desires, you will be able to see the abundance and opportunities in front of you. You cannot achieve abundance from without. There is so much meaning and freedom hidden within you, once you set aside what you are “absolutely certain” is true. Beyond your beliefs lies your freedom.
No matter how many abundance courses you have taken, we guarantee, there are 2 or 3 surprises in the next 6 sessions that will take you under what you think is TRUE, and show you where abundance actually begins. A vast pool of opportunity now opens up for you and becomes clear, and accessible. Finally, you can follow a straight path to the abundance that has been hidden for so long.
Benefits of Sessions 7 – 12 for You as a Coach
- Uncover the mixed signals that drive even motivated clients crazy.
- Merge conscious and unconscious motivation to super-charge your clients’ results.
- Earn while you learn as early as Session 8.
Session 13 – 18: The Arrival
What we want at our core is connection and to know we are loved. This is the treasure. But we can’t arrive here alone. This is a journey we can only take with others.
When you discover the ability to allow people to be themselves and to know that they are not the source of your happiness, you are finally free to go out and actually make things happen. You can now ask for what you really want. You can now collaborate and communicate with people on a level that has rarely been seen in this culture.
Now, successful projects start to happen, and they are fun. Connections happen and are deep and meaningful. You finally trust that you are not in it alone. And perhaps the best part – you stop chasing happiness. You stop fighting to be comfortable. That urgent restlessness disappears. When you are finally able to be happy, both in your comfort and in your discomfort, you have arrived.
Some Benefits of Sessions 13 – 18 for You as a Coach:
- Learn a simple process for quickly getting beyond judgments and “Crisis Mentality.”
- Avoid burnout and empathy fatigue.
- Discover how to resolve conflicts at the soul level.
You Also Get:
- 2 Monthly Q&A calls with Beth – each call will last an hour and a half depending on your questions.
Once you have completed this training, you will be ready to take your certification test.
Level I give you conscious competence. Level II delivers unconscious competence, which you need to get certified for group training.
In this 4-month program, you will:
- Design training’s specifically for your niche.
- Expand your ability to be present.
- Gain greater mastery.
- And deepen your ability to lead with your authentic self.
You will have the confidence you need to guide group participants to reinvent what they thought was possible in their lives.
With Level I training you work with individual clients. There is little distraction, and you can be focused on your coaching notes. In a group situation, however, you cannot pay attention to coaching notes, you need intuitive mastery of the course material. If you are not present on a conscious and unconscious level, the group will sense it and discomfort can hijack the training.
When you complete Level II, being present is now an unconscious skill. You can be present both with the individuals in the group and with the collective soul of the group.
You can be creative and responsive
Also included in Level II, is marketing support.
Here you will:
- Get avatar training, which helps you decide who you want to work with, so you are only working with people you love.
- Discover niche market training, which gives you the ability to hone in on your perfect clients.
- Hon your intuitive knowledge about the best ways to find and enroll your ideal clients into your groups, on a recurring basis.
Level II Benefits
1. The ability to focus on the ever-changing dynamics of a group, rather than worrying about “do I know this?” and “how do I teach this?
2. The skill to work with multiple personalities. You will be able to effortlessly guide each participant in your group to get the benefits and value they came for. Even the over-communicates, the drama queens, the rebels, and the know-it-alls.
3. You will embody your own competence and leadership so that the group can relax and trust you.
4. You will intuitively know how to read the energy of the group. Easily spotting the warning signs — such as tension, confusion, and restlessness.
5. The step-by-step process allows you to build unshakable confidence so you can feel free to teach and dive right into whatever situation arises.
6. We design your training together — with Beth’s 30 years of expertise — your training flows smoothly and you get optimal results.

Create a Client Nurture Program
A client nurture program allows you to stay in contact with your current and prospective clients by systematically providing valuable tips and other useful information to them. Once you’re certified, we support you with your nurture program by providing you with a package of 7 tips, 5 articles and 2 lead magnets that you can use on your blog, newsletter or to create series for that can become another magnet. These will help you establish your expertise and let your current clients warm up to your new services.

How long is my certification good for?
How much does the certification cost?
How can I use the Gibson Banning Method™ with my clients?
As a Level, II certified coach you can also use the curriculum and exercises as part of your in-person (or via telephone/Zoom/Skype) group coaching.
When using any of the material that is part of the curriculum, you must state the source of the materials as being from the Gibson Banning Method™ each time you use them. This is true unless you’re facilitating your client through the entire curriculum, then stating the source once at the beginning is sufficient.
Once you’re certified you will be given access to the Incite Coaching™ Resource Center that will contain all the materials you can duplicate for your clients, as well as your coaching manual that includes detailed coaching notes. You can see a list of the documents you can duplicate in Appendix A, below.
You may not incorporate any of our materials into recorded information programs that you give away or sell. (Although you ARE permitted to record sessions for your client’s to review.)
Can I make copies of the materials?
As part of your certification, you will receive materials that can and cannot be copied.
To make it as easy as possible for you, we have posted all of the materials that you can make physical copies of, such as participant workbooks and exercise sheets, on the Incite Coach™ membership site and also in your initial contract. You can also see a list of these materials in Appendix A. (Below)
If you ever have questions about this, contact us.
How does the co-branding work?
How can I use the Incite Coaching™ bonus content in my business?
You MAY NOT publish them in other media outlets such as Facebook posts, magazines, newspapers, ezinearticles.com, or other online or offline article directories.
As discussed in Question 4, if we have fifty Incite Coaches submitting the same article through ezinearticles.com it will violate their policies and dilute the value of the Incite Coaching™ brand.
All articles, tips, and lead magnets must be reproduced in their entirety, unedited, and accompanied by the original copyright information or the following reprint statement:
“Copyright © 201_ Focused Attention Inc – InciteCoachingAcadamy.com All rights reserved. Reprinted with permission from Beth Banning.
You may add your own “Resource Box”. A Resource Box is a call to action that you include at the end of the article to ask the reader to do something (usually a link to your website). It is also the place where you can say something about yourself and your credentials.
Why might we need multiple certifications?
What is your refund policy?
Our commitment is to change people’s businesses and lives. In order to do this, we have chosen to give only a small refund window. We believe that giving refunds leaves you hesitant and less than 100% committed to this process. We understand sometimes things change and on occasion what we think we want, isn’t what we want once we get it. We honor and respect these situations.
We also know from experience that commitments made from a sturdy foundation and intentional choice more often creates massive positive change. We want those who decide to do this certification program to know that it is the right decision for them. With that said… You can participate in the course for up to the first 3 days or 2 modules. If you do the work and don’t get value or feel you’re learning style doesn’t match how we teach, we’ll happily refund the Incite Coaching Certification purchase price less $299 for administrative costs subject to the conditions listed:
Deadline to Apply for Refund. To be eligible for a refund, you must submit your request within 3 days of your 1st payment or before you have gone past Session 2 of the curriculum – whichever comes first. The deadline exists because if you sign up for the Incite Coaching Certification, we want you to get started. If you don’t plan on starting right away but want to sign up this year we’d love to have you, but make sure this is the right investment for you as the refund does have a firm deadline.
Completed CourseWork. We’ll ask for your completed coursework (to make sure you gave it a go) and ask what didn’t work for you (so we can learn and improve).
Company Discretion. After you submit your materials, all refunds are within the Company’s sole discretion whether to grant or deny the refund request.
Please do not enroll in the Incite Coaching Certification Program if you just want to “check it out.” We put an extraordinary amount of time and effort into this program and we expect you to do the same. Incite Coaching Academy is for serious students only. No exceptions.
Please note there is a $299.00 NON-REFUNDABLE fee that is to cover the costs, time, effort, and energy of our team working to make it possible for you to participate. If you decide to get a refund from the program within the refund period please note that it will be the full amount you have paid minus the $299.00 NON-REFUNDABLE fee that will be retained by the company.
Thank you again for your interest in the Incite Coaching™ Certification Program.
