For me, the program was life-changing. Previously, my focus centered solely on coaching techniques and frameworks. I discovered that to unleash the extraordinary in others, I first had to unlock my own potential. It’s the only coaching program I’ve attended that provides 360-degree personal support, with coaching, mentoring and supervision. By evolving into a better version of myself, I forged a distinct coaching philosophy that deepened the relationship with my coachees and accelerated their success.
