It was a great start to build my foundation to becoming a Coach. I didn't start off in the fast-track program but I was inspired to enroll!

Great people with a strong desire to help make us be the best coaches we can be no matter what our desired outcome is for this training

Very impressed. Both the course content and teachers are top-notch. The format, pace, and organization of video sessions are particularly well done. And very much appreciated by someone who gets a little sleepy by 930pm. ;-) I was expecting 90mins of endless PowerPoint slides...instead this is engaging and stimulating...class pace and format keeps you on your toes and engaged.

I feel that my time is valued. I found 5.5.5 Coaching Skills Training to be extremely effective, practical, and pragmatic. I was able to walk away from each meeting with tools to use, found implementing them easier with practice. What a great start to the program. Joanne is wonderful. I am incredibly happy with this program, So thankful I found it and chose it for my training.

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.
