About the MMS Institute

The MMS Institute is a full service coaching, training and licensing firm working in collaboration with individuals and organizations to formulate their visions, map out strategic plans and implement changes so that you will cause your wishes, dreams and goals to become reality. Founded in 1974 by dr. Chérie Carter Scott, today there are offices in both the United States and The Netherlands. Dr. Carter Scott is a #1 New York Times best selling author and her books have been translated in more than 40 languages. Besides the books, the organization is responsible for teaching and presenting the Coach’s Training – a personal and professional program in both the United States and in The Netherlands.

The Coach’s Training is a course initiated and run by The MMS Institute, which trains and certifies people as MMS trained coaches. The course was designed primarily for those who work directly with the public, be it client, customer, patient, student, employee or peer. The information taught in the training is critical for anyone who desires outstanding interpersonal and transformational skills. It is a three-month training program that equips people to use the in-depth questioning approach. Thus, allowing the people to find their own answers. We embrace the Socratic approach to problem solving that features eighteen key points that focus on listening skills, open-ended questions and turning visions into reality.

An MMS Worldwide trained coach facilitates a client:

  • in determining what is wanted in a specific situation;
  • in outlining a step-by-step plan of action for producing what is wanted; and
  • by supporting and encouraging the person until the objective is fully realized.

The basic assumptions in the MMS Worldwide consulting process are:

  • people have an inner sense of direction and know internally what they want;
  • people possess the inner resources to achieve exactly what they want in their lives;
  • the coach’s role is not to tell, but to be a catalytic agent, encouraging another to discover answers from within; and
  • the optimum climate for discovery is trust, unconditional acceptance and suspended judgment.
