Become a Certified Holistic Life Coach
The Essentials of Coaching Institute:
The Art and Skills to Become a World-Class Coach
Phase One TBA

Purpose: The Essentials of Coaching Institute: The Art and Skills to Become a World-Class Coach is designed for those who want to become a Life Coach and for those who already are coaches and want to sharpen their skills and/or get fresh new ideas. This two-phase program synthesizes many of the coaching models I have experienced over years of study in the field. It is an integration of what I find deeply compelling for me in coaching others. At the end of the program you will:

  • Be ready to start a coaching practice
  • Be more effective in your personal and professional life
  • Deepen your communication skills
  • Help others discover their strengths and remove their barriers
  • Learn more about yourself and others
  • Discover ways to make your vision your reality
  • Live more authentically at home and at work
  • Know you are making a difference—for yourself and others

Why participate?
Whether you are looking for a new career, want to start your own business, hope to deepen your skills in your current career, or simply want to help people this may be the workshop for you. There is a great need for coaches who care about people and want to help make a difference to them during stressful, transitional or otherwise challenging times.

Testimonials from recent graduates:

"It was a wonderful experience to work and learn under you. You set high expectations, but always temper them with compassion. This is how I strive to be as a teacher. You exude both strength and caring, and create a safe but rigorous environment. In some really challenging moments in my life, it was motivating to hear both your affirmations and your exhortations to do more/better. In addition, your focus on serving others has helped me to find direction in what I am doing now. Also, you model how to find a balance between the need for Truth and the need for Harmony, even when you need to adjust for sudden shifts."
~ Abby Weir

"Susie you were fantastic as a leader. You are a model of how to be a strong and compassionate leader. Your focus on this teaching was keen and enabled me to see how important it was to you and how much you cared about each of us as people, learners and coaches. Your compassion made me feel safe in the learning process and your insight and focus and challenge helped me to take the risk of being honest with myself and with you in order to grow."
~ Anne Steele

"The content of the program is very rich. The Guide is a treasure through this process.  I have everything I need and more with the guide and our sessions.  THANK YOU!!!!!  You are a wonderful leader with a perfect blend of compassion and achievement.  I admire your ability to hold us accountable for the work we do while being empathetic and caring." 
~ Elena Petrici

"On a scale of 1-10, a 10 for content.  Everything we learned was helpful, valid and useful and I know I will be using all of it in some way.  You genuinely care about us and this program.  You see our potential and want to foster it." 
~ Amy Fortier

"Awesome...I have gained so much knowledge on so many levels!  I have grown personally and professionally.  I feel like I will be able to model the program!  I enjoyed the ability to be flexible and loved the relaxed feeling.   I think this course would be beneficial for everyone!  You are wonderful!  I hope you continue to inspire!" 
~ Sara Dunkerton
