World-Class Coach Training with Amazing Results

Imagine your world has transformed; the obstacles you have been facing with patients, with clients, your workplace, and yourself started to dissolve.  How would you feel if:

  • Your patients went from non-compliant to engaged in meeting their goals.
  • Conversations that used to be highly charged and touchy are now calm and deeply productive.
  • You can easily help people identify feelings and emotions without them shutting down or getting triggered.
  • You have a framework for decision-making that helps you choose the right modality for your clients at the right time – and they are on board.
  • You have new communication skills to transform your work culture into a respectful and supportive workplace.
  • Your new certification and skills put you in line for your dream job - a promotion or private practice.

What is Coaching?  How does it bring benefit to your clients or patients?  

That is the transformative effect of Holistic Coaching with Wisdom of the Whole Coaching Academy.  

But don’t just take this at face value, this is what our graduates say:

These courses have given me much more satisfaction in my nursing practice and has changed the way I approach my patients and their families. I think they feel much more supported and heard and I feel that I am able to make a plan that really works for them using coaching. ~Michael, nurse in Maryland

All nurses should experience Wisdom of the Whole!! The coach training opens multiple doorways and/or pathways to follow, expand and explore, providing a deeper understanding of ourselves, our practice, and our clients. ~Patricia, nurse in Florida

…Every single session is different and the shifts that I see clients make in their perception are convincing and lasting. I truly feel that I can help my clients gain insights quickly and make lasting changes in their lives with the Wisdom of the Whole coaching. I can't imagine anything more rewarding as a job. Thank you Linda!!! ~Irina, physician, New Jersey

This is a life changing course. A whole new world has opened for me!! This course will alter your body, mind and spirit. ~Teresa, nurse in Virginia

Wisdom of the Whole Coaching Academy transformed my life as well as teaching me invaluable coaching skills. Since we receive as well as administer coaching, we have the opportunity to experience the magic of coaching for ourselves. As a result my life looks and feels very different than it did when I started. There is a special and unexpected magic that underlies and takes place in this training program… ~Bettina, California

The Wisdom of the Whole program has been a life altering experience. Now, I am ready to help people change themselves and our world! ~Lynn, Alaska

Everything I was looking for and more! Revived my passion and desire to be a nurse. ~Megan, Registered Nurse, Texas

I came into the class with only a basic concept of what coaching is…and it’s so much more! I had lost my passion for nursing in the current healthcare model that is more like “sickcare.” That model made me sick as well – I want to use what Wisdom of the Whole has taught me so that I may help others get well. Wisdom of the Whole’s holistic approach includes all aspects of our self and our consciousness. This inspires and creates change in the deepest of ways for the coaching client. What has surprised me the most, is how inspiring and educational clients can be for me. I get so much from them! The environment of Wisdom of the Whole is supportive and familial beyond any other learning experience I’ve had in my 50 years of learning. I’m forever grateful that I found Wisdom of the Whole, and will continue to be a part of it as an ongoing learner and alumni. ~Michelle, Registered Nurse, Missouri

Paula Szloboda, RN, NI, MA, MBA, Therapeutic Chef

I’ve provided health education as an expert, in my position as a registered nurse, and also from the position of health educator/health coach and therapeutic chef specializing in nutrition. In this realm, I find a combination of coaching and consulting to be most effective.

Ginny Katz, MS, MSS

I’m a kindergarten teacher and spend my days with five- and six-year-olds. When they’re in an argument, and really in all aspects of their lives, they’re used to having adults intervene, and to counter this I spend part of my year allowing them to ask powerful questions to learn how to arbitrate their own disagreements.
