“I would recommend the Coach Training Intensive for someone who is already coaching… for people thinking about coaching as a way to test the waters as to whether this is really their calling… and someone like myself who at this point isn’t considering it professionally, but know that those [coaching] skill sets are used day to day as I work with other leaders in my organization.”
– C, Entrepreneur
“The CTI program is truly phenomenal and transformative. It equips you with practical and applicable tools to bring dreams and business to life.
