Are you a good coach? Do you want to be GREAT?

Coaching is at a crossroads. Lots of “good” coaches, very few “great” ones.

To thrive, you need to stand out. You need to be great, or disappear in the glut. Join us for a very different training experience, designed for established coaches.

You will learn advanced techniques and a new mindset for delivering faster, better results to meet the demands of the high-velocity world ahead.

The 7 Paths to Great Coaching workshop will jumpstart your journey to the next level of great coaching, equip you to add greater value to your clients, and enrich your own experience as a coach.

Participants practice key challenges in a supportive, safe environment with other seasoned, talented coaches - in a very small group of committed learners. Faculty and peers provide insightful debriefs, discuss alternative approaches, and help you move forward to practice again to perfect your techniques.

The workshop is fast-paced, fun, and designed for deep learning.

This program is ideal for seasoned coaches who are:

  • Ready for the next challenge or want to transform their practice
  • Eager to help their clients get better results, faster and in more fulfilling ways
  • Passionate about their own growth and development and looking for a catalytic experience with the right learning community to upgrade their “personal operating system."

7 Paths to Great Coaching is coming to Toronto, November 7-9, 2018. Find details here:
