IS COACHING FOR YOU?
The common thread woven throughout our coaching community is a deep desire to make a difference in the lives of others.
If you’re a therapist, manager, consultant, counselor, or teacher, your coaching skills help people create a better future. You can use coaching to enhance your existing career or practice, whether you’re in business, health care, education, social work, ministry or another field. Or you can launch your own business as a transformational coach, where you’ll have a flexible work schedule and financial freedom.
WHY COACHING FOR TRANSFORMATION
In a word—depth. In this experiential learning you face the cutting edges of your own growth, as well as:
• Receive mentoring with rigorous feedback on your coaching skills
• Hold space for transformation for the client and the coach
• Deepen awareness of multicultural coaching
• Expand emotional intelligence and needs awareness
• Use body awareness to support decisions grounded in innate wisdom

What graduates of Coaching For Transformation are saying…
“I’ve attended some dry academic coaching courses in the past, but what instinctively called me to Coaching for Transformation was its edgy feel, and its values of creativity and social justice. The program has been the single most important learning experience I’ve had in over a decade. CFT helped me remember my core values, quirky strengths, and love for community and connection. The program enabled me to trust my intuition and take creative risks, and in turn, it provided me with the tools to help clients do the same.” —Jessica Balboni
“I help young women in leadership roles step into their power. Shifting from consulting to coaching, my clients are taking ownership in their decisions. The impact of Coaching for Transformation on me personally is magical—the quality of my life and relationships has improved because I’m letting in love and learning.” —Dara Silverman
“The impact coaching has had on my clients is nothing short of amazing. Like my own journey, I have seen my clients breakthrough their fears and limiting beliefs, which kept them stuck in miserable careers and anxiety-ridden lives for years. By getting clear on their values, my clients have started businesses, changed jobs, improved their relationships, moved to new locations, etc. It lights up my heart to witness these powerful shifts.” —Tanuja Ramchal
