Transformational Coaching Accelerators August-December 2023
FIVE MONTHS OF TRANSFORMATIONAL COACHING PRACTICE
WHY YOU WANT TO ATTEND
Are your coaching conversations short of transformational?
Maybe you're the one doing the heavy lifting. You might ask a good question, but then find yourself adding in qualifiers. Perhaps you struggle with taking a confrontational stance when you know it's really what your client needs. Or, you're still hesitant to explore emotions or dive into limiting beliefs.
You can imagine the coach you want to become. Who you know you can become. But you're not there yet.
We can help you become that coach.
If you've invested the time building your knowledge and learning about Transformational Coaching, what you need is straightforward: dedicated space to practice and receive targeted feedback, combined with expert modeling and a few prioritized tools.
What you need is our Transformational Coaching Accelerator. This offering is a monthly cohort experience for established coaches who want to truly level up their craft. This will transform your practice.
Don't settle for conversations that are "good enough."
📖 Move beyond the book:
If you have read Elena's books and listen to our podcast, then your conceptual understanding of Transformational Coaching might be high. That matters. That is a strong foundation to build from. But, if you want to be a Transformational Coach, you need to build and refine your skills in a rigorous learning environment. This is your chance!
⬆️ More than skill building:
TCAs also provide you with two critical resilience-boosters: space and community. First, the chance to slow down, reflect on who you are as a coach, and remember what brought you into your role and this field. Then, the opportunity to learn in community, share wisdom, and form meaningful connections with coaches across the globe. You'll leave with renewed energy, inspired to return to your school or organization to implement all that you have learned.
WHAT YOU’LL LEARN
The most essential Transformational Coaching moves and tools
Your strengths and areas for growth as a coach and leader
How you can improve your coaching skills through scaffolded practice with other committed learners
Learn about this course from Elena Aguilar.

HOW YOU’LL SPEND YOUR TIME
THEMES BY SESSION
August's TCA: Lessons Learned from Empowering Stories
Description: The start of the school year is a powerful moment to pause and reflect on both the past and upcoming school year. What is the story of last year our clients are telling? How do they feel about that story? What stories and lessons do we want our clients to intentionally carry forward into the coming school year? During this month’s accelerator, we will explore what type of empowering stories we can tell based on the lessons learned. This will help cultivate both our clients’ resilience and self-awareness.
September's TCA: Building Community, Building Longevity
Description: Supporting our clients in establishing strong relationships in the beginning of the year is both foundational and critical for their long-term success. They need to build relationships with you, their students, or their colleagues. Why? Many of us know teachers don’t leave strong communities, and students thrive in strong communities teachers stay in. During this accelerator, we will explore what it looks like to support our clients in seeing the strengths in their relationships and communities, in order to support their resilience and retention.
October's TCA: Shifting Clients Back to Empowerment
Description: “I thought this year would be different…” is what many coaches hear their clients saying. When expectations are different from reality, it is important to help our clients navigate the emotions they are experiencing and explore how to move forward in a way that is supportive for themselves and students. Join us during this month’s accelerator to learn and practice ways for inviting your clients to recognize what is in their control.
November's TCA: Releasing Resistance
Description: Are you experiencing what you perceive to be resistance in your coaching relationships? Many of us are wondering how we support our clients, but because of resistance, it feels like we are unable to answer that question. During our accelerator, we will explore the origins of resistance and how we can coach our clients to a place of ease.
December: Energizing Empowerment (Not Toxic Positivity)Description: Many of us as coaches seek to balance validating the difficult experiences of our clients, while also helping them see the real bright spots in their practice and community. The close of the Gregorian calendar year can be a real opportunity to invite clients into a state of reflection and empowerment, without glossing over the hard. Join us for this accelerator as we explore how to shift our clients from disempowerment to energized, so we can enter into January strong!
