A Book Study based on Awareness Is Enough -
Reflections on Being a Coach (CEA-000451-3)

Mindful awareness lies at the heart of meaningful, life-changing results for you and your clients.

I feel good about creating goals for my business and working at a pace and in a way that honors my values. I know confidently that my business can move forward without me having to change who I am. Without this course, several business building steps were going completely undone and delayed.

What Our Students Are Saying

Amber Fowble

"I really enjoyed the refresh that this course provided me. It was great to hear how self awareness and self care practices can really set me up to support my clients the best. Very excited to utilize some of the learnings and powerful questions in my coaching."

Kathleen Duffy

"I learned some new tips in addition to many good reminders of effective coaching techniques. I also found the handouts to be very useful and will use going forward with my coaching clients. I always find it interesting how even "seasoned" coaches can always benefit from programs like this and use the information and experience to reinvigorate their own coaching."

Meghan McHale

"This was a VERY helpful and enjoyable course! I really learned a lot from listening to the peer coaching sessions. I think one of my favorite things about them was how they would use the learned skill from the module but the sessions were not perfect, which made it relatable to being a coach. Those stuck moments were good learning moments and something every coach experiences. I took something away from each module, like how to make referrals and helping unfocused clients. It was helpful listening to the content as well as the coaches coaching each other. I really gained a lot of insight on their coaching styles and how they applied the skills learned."

Melissa Factor

"This class was amazing... I enjoyed this class! Loved the fact they offered coaches to practice and demonstrate which gave me tips and new ideas to offer my clients. The site was easy to operate and at times when I had to pause, I was able to begin right where I left off. This course was worth the fee, I look forward to more opportunities from your site, ty!!"
