See why a regional director of a large health organization chose Coaching Out of the Box® for his team.

And if that's not compelling enough, check out why this director of a learning and development group was motivated to not only become a Coaching Out of the Box® licensed trainer, but to share it with others on her team and beyond.

The 5/5/5 Coaching Skills Training Program™  is definitely worth it. Without a doubt, coaching has helped my performance. I use the coaching skills I learned on a daily basis.

The group that took the initial training has extended their coaching broadly - they are using the coach approach themselves, which was just what we wanted - to build the capacity to coach inside the corporation.

Coaching has affected my ability to lead, absolutely. I have a large group and frequently run into situations where my coaching skills have really helped - especially the listening skills. There's an expectation that the leaders have all the answers but using coaching, I can turn some of the issues back to the people I coach and get even better answers and solutions from them. Coaching helps the coachees with the confidence to make more of their own decisions. Coaching has helped me to help my staff bring out the decisions and answers from within them.

The program is excellent - simple, concise and relevant. A day well spent. I was struck by the synergy and the community that was clearly evident in the dynamics between the presenters and the MCC's. The playfulness and passion the MCC coaches bring to the process is contagious and makes me want to be a part of this profession.

It is the recipe to help me in my business and family relationships. The positive, friendly factor shines throughout everyone involved. I am now convinced that coaching is a true profession and has a great potential for growth.

Listen with your ears, eyes and heart. Show up authentically. Thank you for solidifying my sincere belief that we are all leaders by "showing up" for others. I can see this applicable in frontline, supervisory, management, executive, community, non-profit...you nailed it.

The Coaching Fundamentals™ Program offered through COOB is an excellent opportunity to delve deeper into the coaching model over time. the once a week webinar worked for my schedule and the timing invigorated me for my day. I wanted to go out and practice my new skills. The expert facilitators were practical, supportive and inclusive. Their genuine passion with coaching came through and was effective in moving a virtual class to success.

Wonderful opportunity to learn from each other and Master Coaches. Learning environment was very supportive. The instructors really "walked the talk". (How refreshing it was to see to see Powerpoint used to support learning.)
