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.

Here's how:

  • In these monthly sessions, you'll fine-tune your conversations and gain proficiency in our highest leverage tools.
  • You'll do so in a supportive community of coaches committed to transformation. 
  • You'll hone your awareness of your strengths and areas for growth as a Transformational Coach. While each learning session lasts one day, this knowledge will support your growth and impact in every conversation so you will continue to improve between sessions.

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.


Participants in this experience must have attended one of our coaching workshops, and they must have a copy of The Art of Coaching Workbook (not included in the registration fee). The Art of Coaching is also recommended for understanding the foundations of Transformational Coaching but is not strictly required for TCA learners.

If you're new to Transformational Coaching, start with The Art of Coaching workshop.

The virtual engagement takes place on Zoom and requires Zoom (5.8.6 or higher)* and a computer. If you have access needs or accommodation requests, please email We will do our best to meet accessibility needs. 

*Currently Zoom does not allow for auto-captioning in breakout rooms, which we frequently use in workshops. Please let us know if you require captioning in all spaces to access virtual learning.

February's TCACreating the Conditions for Learning

The middle of the year is an important pause point to reflect on how we and our clients learn, change, and improve. During this month’s TCA, we will anchor our learning and growth in Elena Aguilar’s Transformational Coaching Rubric 2.0. From there, we will leverage tools like Mind the Gap and Principles of Adult Learning to most effectively create the conditions for individual and collective development.

  • Disposition: Curiosity, Learner’s Orientation

March's TCA: Bringing the “Play” to “Role-Play”

“What might be possible if…” is one of Elena’s favorite coaching stems. So what might be possible if you were able to put on new lenses to expand how you solve coaching dilemmas? Or if you were able to leverage a group of other coaches to help you get unstuck? Join this month’s TCA where we will engage in “start and stop” role-plays where you will build fluency in The Coaching Lenses and additional visualization coaching strategies to bring the play to role-play.

  • Disposition: Courage, Learner’s Orientation

April's TCA: Coaching to Release Control and Expand Possibilities

Change is constant. Coaching offers our clients invaluable opportunities to reflect on how they exert their energy during moments of transition and what stories they chose to tell themselves. Join us during this month’s TCA where we will invite our clients to recognize what is in their control and coach their ability to tell empowering, honest stories of self.

  • Disposition: Trusting the Coaching Process, Courage

May's TCA: Appreciating and Integrating a Year of Learnings

What does it look like to create an honest and empowering space for educators to reflect on their learning journey during the ’22-’23 school year, while also helping them integrate those learnings into the upcoming school year? Join us during this month’s TCA as we leverage key tools from the Transformational Coaching Rubric. 2.0 to invite our clients into a place of hope and possibility.

  • Disposition: Compassion, Trust the Coaching Process

June's TCA: Fostering Clients' Self-Awareness and Reflective Abilities

Self-awareness is a critical element of emotional intelligence…and one that is often underdeveloped. In this month’s TCA, we’ll explore how to invite our clients into the kind of reflection that allows them to see how they navigate the world and the world sees them. We will also pause to reflect on our growth during the TCA so far!

  • Disposition: Humility and Mutuality


TCAs are the next step for those who have previously engaged in at least one of our coaching workshops and want to take their coaching to the next level.
