Today we are excited to announce the first recipients of our Personal Agility Recognized Coach™ (or PARC) designation, Liviu Mesesan and Adelina Stefan. As a result, you may be rolling your eyes and thinking, “Just what the world needs… another certification!” Why did we create this recognition anyway? The answer lies in the mission of the Personal Agility Institute.
Early on, we recognized that The Personal Agility System wasn’t just another way of getting things done. It often serves a pathway to deep and enduring transformation for the people who apply it. For example, Sharon Guerin turned her life around, thanks to PAS and the coaching and support she received from Maria. Her case represented potentially millions of cases, and this inspired the mission of the PAI.
The Personal Agility Institute strives to enable one million people and companies to change their life or work situation, measurably and obviously for the better.
Today, we have collected dozens of case studies of people who did exactly that: they made an important improvement thanks to Personal Agility. Usually coaching plays an important role.
The PARC recognition celebrates those who enabled the transformations. A PARC has worked with multiple clients who have transformed their lives, work, or companies. The clients have gotten results for which they are thankful. These cases are publicly documented, written in close collaboration with the people involved, and validated by the Personal Agility Institute.
Announcing Liviu Mesesan, PARC and Adelina Stefan, PARC
Congratulations and special thanks to Liviu Mesesan, the first to receive the PARC recognition. Liviu pioneered the ideas that PARAs (Personal Agility Recognized Ambassadors) could share PAS through coaching. Two of his coachees have gone to become PARAs themselves.
Congratulations to Adelina Stefan. Adelina’s work highlights the challenges faced by people in career transition.
Unlike most agile certifications, you don’t get the PARC by attending a class or passing a test. The PARC is a celebration and proof that the holder has successfully enabled real clients to make important changes. We believe future clients can turn to a PARC with confidence.
Thank you to both of you! You are making our vision a reality.
How to become a PARC
The essential requirement for a PARC is to document and publish at least five case studies. Of course, an applicant must be a PARA, which means the candidate is also a trained coach. The candidate has assisted and people with their challenges using The Personal Agility System, and documented these transformations through case studies. They must publish their case studies on the PAI blog and may publish them elsewhere.
