LIVE ONLINE COACH TRAINING

The Art of 
Developmental Coaching

Deeply Understand your Clients World. 
Elegantly Expand their Consciousness.

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 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 20-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.
