This class will guide participants through an in-depth sequence of learning activities to enhance your knowledge, skills and application of MotivationaI Interviewing and add to your coaching competencies.   
Participants will: 


  • Explore the different ways to support behavior change included in the Motivational interviewing four processes: Engaging, Guiding, Evoking and Planning

  • Explore the approach and principles MI uses to share information

  • Apply and practice MI skills and strategies designed to evoke motivation for change.

  • Adapt the MI method and spirit to best fit participants’ current practice setting


The widely used approach of Motivational Interviewing (MI) offers many evidence-informed, person-centered communication skills and techniques to complement your coaching competencies. Professionals can use these skills to achieve successful and sustained behavior outcomes and encourage growth and progress with their clients.


There is robust scientific evidence to support the efficacy of MI in helping patients make positive health-behavior changes. Research has demonstrated that motivational interviewing can improve client engagement, help to resolve client ambivalence, and promote client activation in activities that lead to better health outcomes.


Learning activities will include demonstrations, class discussions and presentations, and small group exercises, with opportunities for participant practice with feedback.


Consider attending this class if you are a coach or healthcare professional who:

  • Works with people to change health behaviors. 

  • Are interested in learning more about MI or building/increasing the MI knowledge/skills you already have

  • Would like to translate MI knowledge into practice. 

  • Wants a hands-on opportunity to hone MI skills.


Preparation materials for the class will be offered on the class site after registration.

Cut Through the Noise:
The Stark Truth About What it Takes
to Make a Living at Coaching

Facilitator: Mary Cravets

Cost: Early Bird $350

through 5 p.m. ET September 1

CEUs: Wellcoaches 3, NBHWC 3

To earn enough money to support a life you love, you must master two skill sets: coaching skills and business development skills. Wellcoaches has equipped you fully for the first, but so often new coaches' businesses fail because they either:

1.  Avoid the business development skills altogether- and their business goes nowhere. OR…

2.  Get overwhelmed by conflicting advice from marketing “gurus” who leave you feeling lost, turned off by icky sales tactics, and paralyzed with confusion.

It’s time to cut through the noise, simplify, and make sure you’re doing the right things to grow your business.

This workshop is not for the faint of heart! It provides hard truths and straightforward advice so you will:

  • Understand how to use 3 simple questions to create your own unique strategy to get more clients and become profitable faster

  • Uncover mindset roadblocks about sales and marketing, so you put yourself out there in ways you actually enjoy!

  • Learn the easy-to-overlook myths, mistakes, and missteps that significantly slow your ability to get paying clients

  • Figure out the best use of your time as you get started (especially if you have a full-time job you want to escape!)
