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.


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.



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
