Coaching Out of the Box® provided me with the practical coaching tools that I could put into practice immediately. A great course for people wanting to get an introduction on how to use the coach approach in their work environment.

The 5/5/5 Model augmented an arsenal of various organizational behavioral, development and emotional intelligence competencies, provided the coach powerful tools to move the coaching client forward to the next level of their decision-making capabilities. This will, in my view, inspire leaders, organizations and workplace members to be the best they can be. The 5/5/5 Model is the underpinning and bridging vehicle to the successful time-tested structure for that successful launch forward.

The 5/5/5 Coaching Skills Training Program provided me with foundational information, tools, tips, training, but more importantly, it provided me with structure to give me confidence in coaching as I begin this journey. The practice during the course was essential and the opportunity to meet with each other outside of class provided additional practice in a safe place. I would absolutely recommend this course for anyone seeking to improve their coaching skills but also for anyone who has any relationships in their life! I know my parenting, marriage, and employee relationships will all benefit from what I learned as well. Thank you!

Through the 5/5/5 Coaching Skills Training Program™ I recognized the importance of a client centered experience, getting to understand how the person thinks, feels, believes, and emotes and how these influence who they are and what they do.  This, and knowing that part of being a good coach is being fully present with someone to make their life better, are two significant learnings from the course.  There are many more.  I am now fully on the journey to become a coach!  Thanks Coaching Out of the Box®!

I appreciated the community we built in this program - held together by our coach-facilitator's warm heart and thoughtfulness.  We all felt welcomed into her presence, which was lovely.  The tools of 5/5/5 are practical and clear, which makes coaching more accessible for those who are new to this model or to coaching in general.

I have never taken a coaching course and I wondered what I could learn in the virtual setting and in such a compressed time frame. The Coaching Out of the Box® program, 'Coaching Fundamentals™' was a gift to me as I participated. I not only learned how to be a coach, I also benefitted from coaching for the challenges I am facing in my life at this time. I was reminded that each of us has wisdom and knowledge within to be powerful on life's journey. I believe that as managers lead with a 'coach-approach', the workplace will be transformed. The course was clearly planned, with excellent support from the instructors and the materials provided. I feel happy to have had this opportunity and know that I will use the skills of listening, consciously being present and asking powerful questions. I recommend this course for anyone who is willing to learn about themselves and who is longing for powerful conversations that will transform your world! Thank you!

The Coaching Fundamentals Program™ in the Coaching Out of the Box® framework was excellent.  I learned to apply coaching strategies that will serve me well when coaching others.  The respect for clients and the work coaches do to support them is evident and inspirational.
