What is the power of coaching?

Coaching is the art of attentive listening, unwavering support, and empowering individuals to conquer specific personal or professional aspirations through non-directive training and guidance. Coaches aid individuals in clarifying their ambitions, offering strategies for achievement, confronting biases, and maintaining regular check-ins for accountability.


"Nothing in my department is getting done."

Coaching assists team members in clarifying goals and removing obstacles, enabling them to prioritize and achieve tasks.

“I need help with the hard conversations.”

Coaching skills provide tools to have difficult conversations in a structured manner alleviating stress.

"My organization needs to learn how to use coaching skills as part of the work"

As a Level 1 ICF Certified organization, we provide coaching skills training and certification for leadership and teams.

"I am overwhelmed and not sure what to do next."

Coaching provides a safe and structured environment to help you get clear, identify the obstacles, and find your answers.

Investing in coaching education offers you numerous benefits, including enhanced communication, empathy, and leadership skills that will boost your ability to motivate and improve team performance. Our program equips you with effective strategies for conflict resolution, goal setting, and problem-solving, fostering a supportive and growth-oriented work environment. You’ll create better team dynamics, achieve higher employee retention, and adapt seamlessly to change.

Owning Your Gold©: Naming And Claiming Your Core Presence with Carolyn Hamilton-Kuby, PCC, CEC
