Participating in the Wellcoaches Professional Coach Training changed my life. The new information I learned and coaching tools I developed have not only brought my coaching to a higher level; I grew personally, as well. The journey I started in Nashville at the opening workshop started me on a clear path to living into my vision of finding meaningful work that enables me to coach every day. The program not only deepened my understanding of how to identify and help clients use their strengths, it allowed me to use my own to make the shift to a wellness-focused work environment. The format of meeting co-participants face-to-face for interactive workshops during the training and developing ongoing relationships with them created fertile ground for coaching practice with our new skills during our group mentoring sessions. We learned so much from the faculty and each other.
