LIVE ONLINE COACH TRAINING

Become a Transformative Presence

Develop Inner Mastery for Extraordinary Coaching

Take your coaching to new depths—and transform your clients with your very presence

You change people with your coaching. That is extraordinary in itself.

But the deepest transformation requires something that’s not in the toolkit of most coaches.

Because the most powerful coaching practice is also the least taught and the most misunderstood.

It’s not a technique or a tool. It’s not even a mindset.

It’s a state—a space—that you create and transmit through your own presence.

And when you know how to access this state, profound, life-altering, transformation occurs.

All good coaches know that there’s a place for problem-solving. Sometimes we need to analyze the situation and help our clients find rational solutions to their problems.

But there are many times when this approach doesn’t work. Or it works at first, only to hit a dead-end that appears unpassable.

Indeed, more and more often, the problems our clients face are too complex to be solved by rational means.

Great coaches know how to tap into a zone beyond rational problem solving.

It’s a space where the things you don’t understand somehow become miraculously clear. Where you reach a level of intimacy with your client that brings trust and co-creation. Where you find yourself saying things that surprise you, or shift your client’s experience in a single moment.

It’s a space that allows—indeed encourages—the power of deep intuition and creativity to come online. It’s a space infused with transformative presence—enabling what most wants to come through you, to enter the room.

It’s a space that goes beyond technique and tools, into a different order of coaching. One where you…

  • Unlock the core of your client’s problems in a way that your rational mind could never have achieved.
  • Become so present that your native creativity and intuition can come through you.
  • Reliably enter into a state where the deepest transformational potentials of the conversation are realized.

It is this capacity for transformative presence—an often untapped, but critical aspect of the coaching encounter—that this training will teach you.

And when you learn to coach from this space, it opens up unparalleled transformational potential.

Learn how to reach unprecedented transformational depth

Become a Transformative Presence is a 20-week online coach training, designed to give you everything you need to become an agent of transformation, allowing you to reach unprecedented depth in your coaching work.

The skill of transformative presence is the key to unlocking tremendous untapped potential in both you and your clients, and yet it’s rarely taught to coaches.

Why?

Because it’s not something you can read about in a book. It’s not something you can simply grasp intellectually. It’s something that must be transmitted and practiced.

And it takes a rare teacher who can give this transmission.

We’ve chosen a faculty with the unique skills and expertise required for such a course. These world-renowned coaches and teachers have decades of experience in guiding people through this territory. More importantly, they also live and breathe it.

Through a mixture of live teaching, coaching demonstrations, and both group and solo practices, they will show you how to go beyond good coaching. You’ll learn reliable methods to sink into transformative presence, and how to continually deepen into its power.

This training will teach you what to do when techniques and tools don’t work—when you or your client become stuck. It will enable you to reach beyond the restrictions of the rational mind and solve the most complex problems that so many clients and leaders now face.

Come and learn how to take your coaching to unprecedented depth — Become a Transformative Presence.

A live and interactive experience

All of the sessions will take place live via video workshop, where there will be the opportunity to discuss your learnings via breakout discussions, participate in powerful coaching demonstrations, and ask questions.

We’ve created an integrated learning journey for you.

Like all our courses, Become a Transformative Presence is carefully designed to help you learn this powerful coaching methodology.

Each workshop brings in new, critical skills that build on the previous material. Rather than a series of unconnected workshops that require you to knit them together yourself, the core of this course will guide you through an integrated arc that builds on itself, teaching you the powerful practice of transformative presence.

The first three modules consist of 3-4 live workshops, each that build on one another, taught by our core faculty. This will be followed by Module 4, featuring methods complimentary to the core trajectory of the first three modules.
