About the Summit
It was over coffee in an Amsterdam cafe that we (Joel and Laurens, founders of Coaches Rising) first conceived of a company that would empower the world’s coaches.
11 years, 25+ training programs, and thousands of students later, we’re proud at the difference we’ve made to so many coaches as we all face the growing challenges of leadership and consciousness.
Coaches Rising is founded on the belief that there are few more powerful paths to coaching mastery, that being in close relationship with the world’s best transformation practitioners.
But this summit is also more than teaching, it’s a collective enquiry into the pressing leadership questions of our time.
