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.

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 fourth time running this powerful program—we’ve had more than 1,000 coaches graduate—and we’re excited for this newest version!
We’ve designed the course as a developmental journey in and of 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 and will be led by Jennifer Garvey Berger, Bob Anderson, Bebe Hanson and Carolyn Coughlin.
The 3 bonus sessions with Beena Sharma, Robert Kegan and Richard Barrett will run after Module 3.
Finally, we’re also giving you the recordings of seven full workshop sessions from previous versions of the course, including Robert Kegan’s session on the “Evolution of Consciousness”, Doug Silsbee’s full module on the “9 Panes of Presence Based Coaching”, Deborah Helsing’s two sessions on the “Immunity to Change”process and Suzanne Cook-Greuter’s session: “Holding ourselves with Humor and Lightness.”
