Learn to empower others at the highest level of excellence.

Radically transform your capacity to bring out the greatness in others, whether you wish to become a professional coach or apply coaching skills in your existing context.

  • Mastering Life's Energies

    Gain the tools and skills you need in order to unleash your innate resilience and creativity; see exactly how to create an environment of trust, collaboration, and empowerment everywhere you go; and learn to consistently move past your personal stopping points, so you may empower others to do the same. Learn more.

  • Empowering Life's Energies

    Move beyond the hidden biases that prevent you from being with others as they truly are; see how to be an empowering presence no matter what frustrations or doubts your client is experiencing; engage with people in the most difficult moments, without developing “compassion fatigue”; and discover new and empowering questions and techniques you can begin using with your clients immediately. Learn more.

  • Advanced Coaching

    Quickly discern and unpack the metaphors and viewpoints that are keeping a person “stuck;” get underneath the narrative, however convoluted, to “laser in” on the heart of the matter; joyously engage the “dance” of coaching, instead of ineffectively clinging to a “formula;” and employ a precise subset of language that elicits insight and action — with no need to “process.” Learn more.

  • The Art of Enrollment

    Learn how to present a vision in such a clear and inviting way that people see the opportunity for themselves, and choose to participate; discover your Core Transformation: a declaration of the difference you are here to make for people; and see how to enroll others in any personal or professional context, in order to successfully act upon a shared vision.

Upon certification, you will be eligible for a professional credential from the International Coach Federation (ICF), the globally-recognized credentialing body of the coaching profession.
