Coaching, you say?

Mar 8, 2019

When I started working with Ann-Marie in 2015, I asked her, “So, what exactly do you do as a coach?”

Her answer stuck with me:

“I help people remember how amazing they are.”

Coaching is a big, deep, creative, and connective practice. It’s as rich and vast as you are willing to be. The process of becoming a coach is transformative. You remember how amazing you are, and in turn can help others do the same.

I enjoyed The Dynamic Trio course immensely. Learning new and effective techniques that I can use in my practice is just what I was looking for in this course. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for new ways to expand their knowledge and life coaching practices.

I really enjoyed my experience with [Skillful Means]. It was my first time participating in a course in this format and I was pleased at the sense of community that was created with the online format. I’ve already signed up to take another course with the school this summer. Thanks!

I’m on a new path and wanted to thank you! I accepted your challenge of saying the loving kindness meditation 3 times per day on the ‘live on the air’ coaching January 21, 2016. It has helped reframe my perspective and pull up more of my hope and optimism.

This was an amazing class that helped me develop better communication tools as a coach. Meg is a wonderful and knowledgeable instructor. I loved the poems she read at the start of each class! Thank you.

I have never thought of myself a leader. The designation just didn’t resonate, and I thought If Steve Jobs Were Your Coach: Leadership Skills to Thrive class might be an odd fit for me. This class helped me rethink what leadership means to me. I learned that leadership qualities are powerful everyday tools that I can call on to generate energy and shift perspective in any life circumstance! I came away from this course with an array of creative strategies and lenses to choose from, as I meet challenges in my own life and as I work with coaching clients facing their own challenges.

I highly recommend Right Speech. It’s an in-depth study into the forms of communication we engage in with ourselves and others!

This class exceeded all my expectations. A must have class for all coaches, no matter what your path is! This was my first detailed exposure to NVC and I fell in Love! Communication is basic and the most important part of relationship, connection and belonging. This opens up deeper level of connection which leads towards love and peace. Srdjan is one of the finest human being I came across. His calm, positive and joyous presence was reflective of NVC in practice. In each class we were able to learn by observing him being ‘NVC carrier’ for all 90 mins. Being a master of NVC he created safe place for  learning. His modesty, kindness and compassion not only made it easy for us to open up and participate in class he held is in safe place and made us feel supported. He was able to bring best from all of us. He made learning joyous and excited. No matter what we brought to table, he took us forward from where we were and utilized every sentence spoken into a learning experience. I have no d… Read more

Great introduction to the MCS program. Highly recommend it!

I went into Right Speech thinking it was a way to connect through words and discovered it was much more. Transforming beliefs and behaviors, courage, resilience, kindness, listening; the qualities of how and what we communicate, nonviolent communication, connecting to self, understanding our needs and feelings as a series of openings that help us coach our clients to self-awareness and the change they want to be.

The experience of participating in S-T-R-E-T-C-H! was one of the most fulfilling and inspiring in my entire life. The curriculum was approached from A to Z. The mindfulness practices at the beginning of each session, and the recommendations for practices of gratitude, compassion, recognition of our heroes, and action boards had a dimension that made me grow, and expand as a human being. There is always so much space to travel within ourselves, making us more approachable, centered, and focused on what is important in the coaching practice, and by extension, in life. I am very thankful to Mindfulness Coaching School, Ann-Marie, Brittany, Philip, Kelly, and my fellow class students. There is a real community there!
