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 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.

At Moneris, we believe in coaching and its power to develop leaders. We also know that good coaches are made, not born. So we did a Canada-wide search for a partner who could help our HR team become more effective coaches. Coaching Out of the Box ® was the clear winner in that they listened closely to our requirements and then created a program that was closely aligned to them. Most importantly, they delivered with outstanding, impactful facilitation. Because of Coaching Out of the Box ®, our HR team is already more effective at coaching in the moment, and we’ve begun formal internal coaching as well.

Despite my initial skepticism about an online learning forum for coaching, Coaching Out of the Box® found a way to incorporate face-to-face interactions, textbook learning, large and small group work, an online chat box, and a formal PowerPoint presentation all at once. All in all, I really felt like I was in a classroom participating in the course.
What I will take away mostly is how to show up as a coach, friend or colleague. To be genuinely interested in what others are saying. Listening is everything!
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.
Fabulous, friendly, knowledgeable, great stories... Achieves its mission to make available basic coaching skills.
