Getting to Know You
Our training is always delivered in a small-group learning environment so you get the attention and practice you need to succeed in a safe and manageable environment. We walk you through the process helping you to apply and integrate your learning immediately. Our Training is rigorous but the benefit will be yours as you begin to build confidence and see progress with every session.
We don't use scripts! We are dedicated to helping you gain confidence and find your own style of working with clients based on a solid foundation of masterful coaching skills. Imperative to your success is the ability to continue along your own path of self-care and personal growth. Our learning philosophy is to create the optimal learning environment. It is to not only instruct you but to mentor you and walk alongside as you create a coaching lifestyle that honors all your goals, roles and the vision you have for yourself and your life.
Our highly experiential approach, including our extremely effective live Practicum Sessions with Marilena will help you learn how to utilize tools in real time, develop and bring your intuition more fully on line and facilitate the lasting shifts and lifestyle change your clients demand. The one-on-one experience with our Master Mentor Coach, Gail Haun, will give you priceless feedback to grow your coaching confidence.
At every level, we are Committed to Your Success!
