What Students Are Saying
This Mandala of beauty has been transformational for myself. I have been on a healing journey for many decades and this class [Skillful Means] supported even more progress on my journey. I have recommended this class and will continue to recommend this class and this wonderful school.
This course [Skillful Means] helped me to understand and practice with the specific skills in coaching. It definitely equipped me to be a better coach.
Anyone thinking about becoming a coach should take this course [Skillful Means] immediately!
I really enjoyed the class Skillful Means and felt it was the perfect class to kick off my quest to become a certified Mindfulness Life Coach. In this class I was introduced to the Essential Coaching Skills to use in a co-active coaching relationship. The material is well presented, organized and unpacked at a moderate pace that I could easily digest.
Skillful Means is a fantastic course. If you are ready to dive into coaching, this class is fun and important!
Skillful Means is like tilling the soil and planting the seeds for your practice as a coach. This is the literal groundwork that, under Ann Marie’s expert facilitation, allows student coaches to grow into effective partners for their clients.
As a result of taking this class (Skillful Means), I have newfound confidence about my ability to coach and a greater appreciation for the experience of being coached. The structure of breaking down the 26 Core Competencies into eight classes was perfect for honing my skills and learning to dance in the moment.
I’ve been a therapist for years now, but still get the jitters every time I begin to work with a new client (probably the “fixer” in me). It was a joy to watch Ann-Marie in action [during Skillful Means: The Coaching Skill Set] and realize that we don’t need to feel like we have all the answers for the client!
This class [Skillful Means] has been such a great growing experience. I’ve developed confidence using skills that had previously just been academic for me. I have especially enjoyed working with other students of such diverse backgrounds, and being able to see them use the same skill through their own unique perspectives. I hope to carry forward the creative and challenging energy I found here.
This course [Skillful Means] is life changing personally and professionally. Skills are not only learned, but internalized so that the coach can be an effective listener. I would highly recommend this to any coach — experienced or a beginner.
