Golden Career Strategies President Stacey Bevill Becomes South Carolina’s First FEBI® Certified Coach

Stacey BevillStacey Bevill, President of Greenville-based Golden Career Strategies, recently earned the prestigious designation of FEBI® Certified Coach. She is one of fewer than 25 FEBI Certified Coaches in the United States and the only one in South Carolina. Bevill joins an elite group of coaches trained in four continents.

The Flow Energy Balance Indicator (FEBI) assessment is a validated psychometric instrument that measures four energy patterns in the nervous system that map to four personality factors, four ways of moving, and four essential modes of leadership. As a FEBI Certified Coach, Bevill works with leaders and teams to shift from unproductive coping habits and behaviors to sustainable improvements. A simple online assessment followed by coaching enables leaders to understand the patterns they typically use, how to access each of the four leadership patterns at any moment and target its use at the right time. Rather than merely identifying habitual behaviors, the coaching and workshops introduce simple and sustainable practices that enable participants to access all four patterns. FEBI training is essential for meeting goals, effective communication, mutual respect and understanding, motivation, and engagement.

“What I love about FEBI is that there is no labeling,” said Bevill. “Unlike many assessments that confine by defining a personality or behavior type, FEBI includes learning simple, sustainable ways to develop each of the four leadership patterns so you can access your strengths and use the best pattern in any situation. I am passionate about offering sustainable solutions.”

In addition to the online assessment and coaching, Golden Career Strategies offers two half-day workshops to enhance the learning experience. The first workshop, Targeting Your Leadership Energy, builds leadership agility and emotional intelligence. This session helps leaders work with their own nervous systems, learning which leadership patterns they favor and how to shift into any pattern that aligns with needed outcomes. Most leaders have heard repeatedly of an area where they could be more effective but find it hard to change. This workshop provides physical ways to expand their capability, build empathy, and embody change.

The second workshop, Harnessing Your Team’s Energy, brings teams together to understand how the patterns show up in team members, team dynamics, and the team overall. This session also explores how the patterns connect to the team’s purpose and context, including leveraging and developing the team's leadership patterns for maximum effectiveness and sustainable results.

Rob Falke, a client and President of the National Comfort Institute (NCI), stated, “Your work with our Curriculum Development Team here at NCI has been remarkable. Your [FEBI] assessment and coaching are truly valuable and sustainable. We consider your ability to present true principles so we can hear and immediately act on them as your gift. Our weekly meetings and day-to-day conversations are now filled with an awareness of each other’s energy patterns and how to apply them to our work and relationships. We see where to strengthen and compensate for each other in complete respect, rather than wonder where we’re coming from. Our new knowledge has also provided a great source for humor and team building. Our load has been lightened by it, and we’re more united and stronger than ever. Thank you.”
