What's the difference between your services and regular business or personal coaching?
At the root of it, rather than simply coach people, we teach people life changing coaching skills. Participants learn how to take a coach approach and adopt a coaching mindset. They learn experiential coaching skills in a simple, engaging way. Our programs teach people to cultivate a coaching culture in their lives and organizations and how to tap into the wisdom, brilliance and abilities of the people around them. Participants who are used to problem solving for others learn to develop those around them into resourceful, self-reliant problem solvers.
Do I have to attend your programs in person, or are they available online?
Our courses and programs are available in a variety of formats from live to virtual to a combination of both. We use the latest, most up to date teaching technology to make virtual learning efficient and simple.
Who are your programs for?
There isn't ANYONE who couldn't benefit from learning the basics in coaching skills. When people learn coaching skills they learn how to truly listen to one another and hear things that bring whole new perspectives, ideas and new ways of collaborating. Whether you’re an individual or an organization, we’d love to talk to you about how learning coaching skills can help you achieve transformational results.
What is your philosophy on coaching?
We believe coaching can change the world. Coaching Out of the Box® was born from one big question. "What if EVERYONE had coaching skills?" Over the years we have witnessed incredible transformation in individuals on up to entire organizations that have adopted a coaching culture. We have watched coaching grow from a few dedicated coaches in North America to a global sensation that continues to grow each year in numbers that were incomprehensible ten years ago. We believe coaching skills are transformational and immensely valuable for everyone. When people learn coaching skills they also learn to be curious, ask questions and be a student of others and their surroundings. Coaching unleashes untapped creativity and talent.
What benefits will my organization see after completion of your program?
Don’t just take our word for it—organizations report that participants experience new perspectives, ideas and ways of communicating. Teams’ ability to support one another and develop solutions together is improved. Participants’ confidence is increased and they have new tools and skills to navigate conflict.

What happens if I can’t attend a class?
We understand the commitment of time you have signed up for and we also realize life can get in the way of your schedule. Our program is designed to offer live interactive learning. The ICF calls it synchronous learning. In the event you are unable to make a class we offer you one option to listen to a recording of the class you miss, complete and submit a Recorded Class Report prior to the next scheduled class. In this report you will be asked to outline your learnings, insights and demonstrated how the content of that missed session applies to your coaching.
In cases where the number of missed hours falls below the ICF requirement for graduation, a retake of the specific missed classes may be utilized. A fee may apply.
