Linda's New Change Book!
Linda and artist Bob Boisson have been working on this innovative project for a few years and excited to finally share it with you.
Refresh Your Skills
Graduates of our core coach training program can now brush up on their coaching skills by "sitting in" on our 30-Hour Core Competency (or All Three). Go to any of our course pages and click on the "Register Now!" button, then select the “Refresher” option in the registration menu.
Become a Certified Coach!
Just as in coaching, we recognize our students are unique with different preferences for a professional coaching certification. As a graduate of our coach training program, you are eligible to take our certification exam which consists of a multiple choice exam and a submission of a recorded coaching session. Once certified, our credential lasts 3 years and the renewal process is simple and easy!

**Note to current students and graduates: If you introduce a friend/colleague to our coach training and they sign up for either our 30-Hour Core Competency Course, or all three of our core coach training courses (60-hour training program), you will receive a $100 cash bonus for a 30-hour course sign-up, or $200 if they sign up for all three courses (30-hour Core Competency, Advanced Tools, and Practicum)! To receive the cash bonus, the new student must put your name in the "Referred by" section in their registration or send us an email: [email protected]. After we've confirmed the introduction/referral, and after the course starts, we will issue the cash bonus via mailed check to the current student or graduate that made the referral. One introduction bonus per student that is referred. Other restrictions may apply.
