What Our Participants Are Saying
Beverly_Fuentes
Beverly Fuentes

"My favorite takeaways from the program were the overview of the coaching process and the tips and tools shared by the trainer. This is a good, comprehensive program for those who are coaches or learning to be coaches who don't have the time or money for a full coaching certificate from CTI."

RC
Robin Carrales

"This program provided me with all the necessary information to begin development of a coaching program within my own organization, and the interaction and information from fellow coaches was invaluable."

"This program reinforced the positive, actionable, and future outcomes that are the goals of coaching. The dialogue tools were definitely worth learning and practicing—they gave me new insights into initiating productive conversations with peers and management while avoiding common pitfalls. I walked away with a very thorough understanding of coaching, and how to implement it effectively."
