It’s an exciting time to be alive — a time that requires Co-Active Communication.

This class is about much more than improving your communication skills. It’s about living and coaching in an environment that cultivates compassion and love, while nurturing the internal and external realities of yourself and your clients.

We will practice transforming conditioned beliefs and behaviors that no longer serve us. New ideas and ways of thinking will emerge as we let go of these outdated beliefs. Through this lens, the coaching client is viewed as being creative, resourceful, and whole. Co-Active Communication encourages the action-oriented language of Positive Psychology to help clients live their fullest potential and contribute to the global community.

It’s a little embarrassing
that after 45 years of research and study,
the best advice I can give people
is to be a little kinder to each other.

Aldous Huxley
