What Students Are Saying
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.
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 course [Skillful Means] helped me to understand and practice with the specific skills in coaching. It definitely equipped me to be a better coach.
The readings for this class [Skillful Means] were amazing and opened wonderful insights and discussions. I learned a lot about myself, both personally and professionally.
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.
This course [Skillful Means] provides the nuts and bolts of how to formulate and execute a coaching session. It was charming, challenging and encouraged me to think critically.
Skillful Means was a great course for learning the coaching skills for the first time or brushing up on the skills you’ve been using in your practice for a while. I enjoyed watching Ann-Marie demonstrate the coaching skills through practice sessions in class. Would definitely recommend to anyone no matter where they are in their coaching career.
Anyone thinking about becoming a coach should take this course [Skillful Means] immediately!
I now have the skills and confidence to begin bringing on some clients. I am grateful to all those who work so hard to help educate others. [Skillful Means]
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.
