Q&A's

It's understandable to have questions or wonder what to expect as you work with a new partner for the first time.  We value transparency and want to deliver answers to all your questions. (Like, we f-ing love questions; Coaching... business... life... we got you.)

  • Who is Vivica?
    The name Vivica honors Becky’s two grandmothers, Vivien and Danica, who each championed their families’ entrepreneurial ventures and served as exceptional models in how to navigate life's greatest obstacles and wildest dreams with wit, wisdom, kindness, and candor. As an aside, has anyone reading this tried to find a business name with a corresponding domain name in 2021 that’s not already taken? That. Shit. Is. Bananas.
  • Why "Partners"?
    We are fanatical about creating a partnership with you that allows us to dig deep to truly understand your reality and potential. We’re not here to listen to ourselves talk or rattle off standardized solutions. We bring a few decades worth of expertise to the proverbial table, but we also know our experience does not define who you are, why you’re on this planet, or what your next big thing is.
  • Talk to me about your mission to help other people, Becky.
    After kicking breast cancer’s ass in my mid-thirties, I feel the (mostly) wonderful pressure to constantly re-commit myself to fully thriving in this life instead of merely surviving it… and I don’t want others to wait for terrible things like cancer to free them of being able to do the same. I am incredibly passionate about my partnerships and feel so incredibly grateful to bear witness as others move forward in their one precious life in a way that propels them forward with a thriving mindset.
  • What's with all images of modern architecture on your website?
    We are so inspired by modern architecture and how it connects to our approach that we made a whole page about it- check it out here!
  • What is Core Energy Coaching?
    Traditional coaching methodologies are typically action oriented and the situation at hand. Therefore, the focus is on goals, steps, and accountability which can be extremely effective in the short run while a person’s enthusiasm and energy are running high. Unfortunately, our ability to sustain the outcome and repeat the process usually deteriorates over time. This is a symptom of underlying energy and mindset inhibitors. As a Core Energy Coach, Becky identifies the root cause of challenges and blocks to success, including limiting perspectives about the world, defeating thoughts, and outdated beliefs picked up from others. It's an unparalleled coaching approach so leaders shift inner blocks and create “choice” in how they think and feel. Results include: Long-term solutions, not just band-aid fixes Enabling stronger performance and results with less effort Reduced stress by changing reactions to circumstances Enabling clients to be agents of change in their own lives The Core Energy Coaching practice is founded on more than 10,000 hours of research and application over the course of 30 years. This interdisciplinary process has its roots in: Psychotherapy Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) Mentoring Consulting Quantum physics Metaphysics Adult and accelerated learning theories Emotional intelligence Leadership development Theories of conscious evolution Please note, I only engage in coaching with my clients and do not diagnose or treat mental health concerns. ​ Copyright iPEC
  • How does Core Energy Coaching drive sustainable change?
    A Core Energy Coach is a pro at helping people unlock their infinite potential…. They lead you into the things you most want to experience in life by sharpening your inner lens so you can see more clearly. Once you have clear vision, you experience and interact with life at a different energy level that allows you to tackle barriers and overcome resistance. This new energy and outlook encourages sustainable action and powerful shifts instead of focusing merely on the result or outcome. We focus on the type of person you want to be/the way you want to feel/the way you interact with the world... not just one goal. You’re probably familiar with personality tests like Myers Briggs, DiSC, and Enneagram. These valuable tools can help you understand your strengths, embrace your weaknesses, and discover how you can work to your full potential. In that way, they typically support a “work with what you have” approach to adapting your behavior and pursuing personal excellence. The tools that Core Energy Coaching utilizes is an attitudinal assessment tool that captures how an individual currently perceives and approaches work and life. With the awareness and insights gained through the Energy Leadership Index debrief, clients have the opportunity to reshape their attitudes and worldview and “transform who they are.”
  • What is the Energy Leadership Index Assessment? How does it guide our coaching sessions?
    The Energy Leadership™ Index or ELI is an online assessment that measures how a leader perceives and approaches work and life. The ELI is an attitudinal assessment, not a personality-based, and it measures the energy levels a person is experiencing under both normal and stressful circumstances. Personality based assessments are insightful but you can't change your personality. The ELI is powerful because people have choice in their attitudes towards people and situations. The Energy Leadership™ Index is ranked #3 assessment by Forbes for executives. ​ The ELI assessment explains how you show up in various aspects of your life. It measures your potential leadership ability by your level of consciousness – your awareness about who you are and what life is about. The assessment measures your ability to lead people, including yourself, to take positive, productive, and sustainable action. The assessment also measures how involved or engaged you are in your roles and tasks on the job and at home. Finally, it shows your energetic reaction to stress so that you can recognize and, if desired, modify that reaction. ​ Copyright iPEC
  • Why are you so obsessed with “How”?
    We are bombarded with more and more of what we should be doing. And Simon Sinek reminds us how important it is to find our purpose, our mission, our why. But we are overwhelmed with success stories that we rarely get to see How people got there or how many times they fucked it up along the way. So we overvalue outcomes and undervalue the process and system which drove the success, which is where we come in. We custom-build a process of your values and strengths and that eliminates barriers. Everyone loves transformation, but real change is hard. Let us help you.
  • What are your referral program benefits?
    Besides the fantastic feeling you get playing a role in changing somebody's life or business for the better- we offer anyone benefits if your referral becomes signs up for a partnership. Current client referral benefits are based on your program. Check out your program page for details on how we show our appreciation. Connectors (not current clients)- we would love to say thanks with a complimentary 60-minute session however you want to use it (for you, your team, etc).
  • What does a custom experience mean when it comes to coaching? Can you explain it simply?
    Whether it’s personal goals or professional aspirations, we take a provocative approach to what’s not working and seize outcomes even when the terrain feels uphill or unchartered. As stakeholders in the landscape of modern life we partner with leaders and organizations to co-design custom roadmaps for clients that: -are anchored in their purpose and passions (simply stated- what you really like to do) -steer our clients into authentic, sustainable journeys -provide clear directions on how to get there -anticipate potential roadblocks to minimize setbacks along the way -don’t utilize shortcuts for short-term gains, but bypass bullsh*t barriers Each custom roadmap we build will be to navigate you within yourself and through your world.
  • Why do you swear so much?
    Great f-ing question. Psychologist Richard Stephens conducted an experiment in which subjects were asked to stick their hand in ice water and hold it as long as they could. The subjects conducted the chilling test while yelling out a curse word and then did so again using a neutral word. When swearing, people could keep their hands submerged for longer and their perception of the pain level went down. So, in conclusion, curse words are just magical mental armor. Seriously? Have you ever dropped a well-timed F-Bomb? That shit will make the sun rise.
  • I noticed your programs commit clients to a long-term partnership; why is that?
    We feel author James Clear nailed it when he said, “The purpose of setting goals is to win the game. The purpose of building systems is to continue playing the game. True long-term thinking is goal-less thinking. It’s not about any single accomplishment. It’s about the cycle of endless refinement and continuous improvement. Ultimately it’s your commitment to the process that will determine your progress.” Mic drop.
  • What is the difference between coaching and therapy?
    Therapy, psychotherapy, or counseling, focuses on mental health and emotional healing. With mental health treatment, a medical diagnosis is established and a treatment plan is created to assist with treating a mental health concern. Therapy often focuses on processing past events to assist with transitioning a client towards a healthy level of function. The therapist is viewed as the expert, who is clinically trained to treat their mental health disorder. Core Energy Coaching is quite different in that it is present and future focused, only exploring the past if it will help with understanding their current life. The coach is viewed as a partner, not a top-down expert, in helping clients identify where they are, where they want to be, and how to get there.
