Empowering Others

So they can be proud of the life they are living

What is Coaching?

Coaching is

Creating a space in which your client gets access to their own wisdom and their own answers for their life.

Empowering your client with tools and skills to observe their stopping points and move beyond them.

Supporting your client to show up in a way they are proud of when they encounter life’s inevitable challenges.

Energizing. Something you look forward to.

Coaching is not

Giving your client answers from your life experience, needing to “have your life figured out.”

Giving prescriptive, tactical advice to help solve your client’s problems.

Trying to prevent your client from encountering difficulties or challenges.

Exhausting. A lot of hard work.

Ontology, a profound and practical approach

Rooted in ontology, or the study of being, our coaching framework looks at what it truly is to be human – the values we live by, the heroic journey we are here to take, and, ultimately, the gift to others we want to be known for.

Scientific and spiritual

Our approach is grounded in principles found across spiritual and secular traditions while also drawing on the latest research in neuroscience.

What is ontology?

Your questions answered

Will this program prepare me for ICF credentialing?

Our Accredited Coach Training Program (ACTP) qualifies you for your Associate Certified Coach (ACC) credential, and fulfills all educational requirements for your Professional Certified Coach (PCC) credential – for which you will qualify upon gaining 500 hours of coaching experience. We also provide twice the mentor coaching hours required for the Master Certified Coach (MCC) Credential by the ICF.

Do you provide business support during and after the program?

A major portion of your training with us is focused on helping you build a successful business. We think of it like this: we’re only successful in our mission if you’re successful in yours. It doesn’t do the world any good to train a lot of coaches if they aren’t out there making an impact in people’s lives.

Our program includes extensive training, mentorship, and peer support to enroll paying coaching clients. After graduation, if you wish to receive further support on your business, we offer an advanced business-building program that you can enroll in.

Is this for people that already have training and experience in coaching or other methods of support?

Yes, it can be a great fit. We’ve had many coaches and trainers come through our program who are already trained and certified in other models. We’ve had many trained coaches who join our program say to us, “this was the missing piece.”

Does working with people with companies in an internal position count towards the coaching hours needed for graduation?

Yes! Many of our coaches aren’t interested in starting a private one-on-one coaching practice. Instead, they want to use coaching skills within an organization as part of their role. To count toward your graduation, the sessions must explicitly be for coaching (vs. supervising or mentoring). Your mentor coach will support you to set up these sessions in a way that works for you and the people you are coaching.

Has the program always been online? Does being online affect the effectiveness of the program?

Our programs are now fully online. By bringing together our more than 20 years of experience leading groups and years of leading remote classes, we have crafted a powerful, engaging, and truly transformational experience. There are ample opportunities to interact not just with your course leaders, but also with your fellow participants, so you have a rich experience of connection and community.

Here’s what folks are saying about our online programs:

  • “This was by far the best Zoom experience I’ve ever had.”
  • “Before the class I was concerned about the amount of hours on Zoom. However you all provided great breaks, stretching, and good amount of interaction to make it super doable and still very effective.”
  • “This worked better that I could have ever imagined. I loved the interaction, the breakout sessions, being able to share in a very supportive space. I think this was done with the utmost care and consideration.”
  • “Feeling peoples energies shift over Zoom was powerful. High level of engagement, vulnerability, and trust by everyone.”
