The Art of Developmental Coaching


A journey of profound human growth.

You may not realize this. But reality is not what it seems.

There is an invisible force that determines how we see ourselves and the world. It underlies every single coaching conversation that we will ever have.

Just as the eye cannot see itself, your clients cannot see the window frame through which they see their own world.

And because of this invisible frame, the stories they tell themselves exert tremendous control over them. They are keeping them from seeing ways out of their dilemmas, and blocking the way forward toward their dreams.

But what if you could make the invisible visible? What if you could illuminate what’s really going on for your clients?

What if you could know – intimately – a process at the heart of human change?

What if you could grasp, why a conversation creates a profound shift in one client, and falls flat with another?

There is a body of work and wisdom, drawing upon decades of research that can answer these questions.

It is a rigorous map, developed by pioneering psychologists over five decades, that shows how human beings actually grow and develop over their lifetime. And when you as a coach learn to work from this approach, you can understand your clients in a profoundly new way.

  • You can meet them where they’re truly at, so they feel deeply seen.
  • You can help them shift their entire worldview.
  • You can help them make the changes that they so deeply want to make.

We invite you to join us, and enroll in the Art of Developmental Coaching.

Learn the transformative art of developmental coaching

The Art of Developmental Coaching is a 15-week online coach training.

It’s designed to equip you with tools and maps to help your clients go beneath the surface of their goals and frustrations, into the domain of deep change.

It will help you make the invisible visible, showing your clients the developmental pathway that leads away from their dilemmas and frustrations, toward the deep changes that truly matter to them.

This practice of developmental coaching can enable you to…

  • Free your clients from the restrictive lenses through which they see and interact with the world around them.
  • Uncover the invisible meaning-making structures of your clients, so they feel deeply seen and understood.
  • Learn how to release your clients from a reactive mindset, and free them to create their life and desires.

And it’s not only your clients that will change. You will too.

You see, you can’t not evolve personally as you go through this program. The curriculum will guide you to find your own limits, become aware of your own blinders, and release you from patterns that might be keeping you from making the impact you want to make with your clients.

You’ll learn from some of the world’s experts on developmental change – men and women who have a rich and sophisticated command of the theory, yet who have dedicated themselves to the application of this work as coaches, consultants and leaders.

Together they will teach you the transformative art of developmental coaching.

We’ve created an integrated learning journey for you.

This will be our third time running the program – we’ve had more than 700 coaches graduate. And this year we’ve added new bonus sessions and materials.

We’ve designed the course as a developmental journey in itself – an integrated arc that teaches you how to coach from a developmental understanding.

The learning arc of the program occurs in 3 modules that build on one another to deepen your understanding and capacity for applying this work with your own clients. Each module consists of 3-4 sessions.

Then the 3 bonus sessions with Beena Sharma, Robert Kegan and Susanne Cook-Greuter will run after module 3.



March 1st, 8th, & 15th

with Jennifer Garvey Berger

In the first phase of the journey, Robert Kegan and Jennifer Garvey Berger will introduce you to the terrain of adult development. You will examine the different stages of the growth arc that are possible for you and your clients, as well as the implications of this understanding for what it means to coach developmentally.

  • Learn about the three most common developmental stages growth and how you can listen to your clients in ways that reveal how they make sense of the world.
  • Discover how to listen for deep structure rather than content, giving you the keys to deep developmental change in your clients.
  • Learn how to identify and engage your client’s personal growth edge freeing them to expand into more full versions of themselves.



March 29th, April 12th & 19th

with Doug Silsbee, Carolyn Coughlin & Bebe Hansen

In the second part of the program, Doug Silsbee, Carolyn Coughlin and Bebe Hansen will take you deeply into the core process that enables true development and transformation: the subject-object move. They will do this through an integrative model, which includes the full somatic and cognitive dimensions of human beings.

  • Understand how to practice the core process at the heart of developmental transformation, helping your clients see the hidden ways they create the world around them.
  • Learn how to infuse everyday activities like seeing, being and acting with presence and awareness, so that they become catalysts for development.
  • Discover how to integrate the soma/body and the bigger contexts we are a part of in your awareness and coaching.



May 3rd, 10th, 17th, & 24th

with Bob Anderson & Rob McNamara

In the final module, Bob Anderson and Rob McNamara you will focus in on how you can effectively and compassionately support development at and between specific stages of consciousness.

  • Understand the two key shifts that the vast majority of your clients make developmentally, allowing you to appropriately guide them in their particular growth needs.
  • Explore the most common transition that our clients seek out our help for: the shift from fitting into the rules around us, to standing up for our own values.
  • Discover how our focus on achievement can actually obstruct growth and development, allowing you to guide yourself and your clients into truly unique expressions of authenticity.

The course has fundamentally changed the way I think about myself, my clients and other people in my life! I feel as if I’ve been given yet another key to understanding the human condition. What a great gift!

I have tried so many of the exercises, applications and questions. The impact has been direct and immediate. The way it has expanded my repertoire and toolbox is really exciting.

Ron Martoia

This course has fundamentally shifted the way I look at my work with clients and in my daily interactions. Transformative learning. The kind that results in seeing new possibilities in being, thinking and doing. Very special.

Linda Beitz

This course helped me put everything together in a way that has profoundly shifted not only my coaching, but my very definition of what I do and how I do it. It felt as if a lot of different parts and pieces that I was trying to make sense of came together. For that, I am hugely grateful.

Ronni Hendel

Adult development is so profound and at the same time subtle. I think I finally GOT it in this course. And I’ll be playing with the tools for years to come.
