S-T-R-E-T-C-H! into your potential both cognitively and experientially.
S-T-R-E-T-C-H! is an interactive opportunity for participants to deepen their personal journey and skill development for coaching. This committed community of Life Long Learners and Growth Mindsetters grow together throughout the 12 weeks.
Through practice and embodying the many coaching exercises and applications, you will create your own blueprint and toolbox to achieve personal and professional goals. You will also explore coaching skills, ICF Core Competencies and Ethics along with tools to launch your business practice.
S-T-R-E-T-C-H! is a hybrid learning model utilizing both synchronous and asynchronous education. This means one week you’ll be deeply engaged virtually with colleagues zooming in class, while the alternate week you will learn in your own time and at your own pace.
This approach allows each participant a 2-week space to connect for partner work, explore readings and videos, and view recorded content, before virtually meeting again with the full class to discuss what arose (and didn’t!).
This is what the Hybrid Model looks like:
The live virtual classes on Zoom will be held on weeks 1,3,5,7,9,11,12.
The self-paced modules will be held on the alternate weeks, 2,4,6,8,10.

To take advantage of the richness of this class make sure you can commit significant blocks of time for reading, reflection and connecting with other students, between the twice weekly classes.

What Students Are Saying
This class will give you a coaching community in just a few short months. I now feel that I have colleagues and a support system that I can reach out to in times of need. So grateful for having the chance to know these remarkable individuals.
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!
[STRETCH] offers an overview of the ins and outs of the multifaceted world of coaching. It was fluidly and efficaciously presented to allow for the most productive experience. I walk away as a better prepared and more confident coach!
The S-T-R-E-T-C-H! course was an amazing experience and it allowed me to grow (and stretch) as a new coach!
Phil was simply amazing. He is abundantly talented, non-judgmental, gracious and wise. He created a strong and safe community where people could take risks, learn about themselves, the coaching profession and above all, grow personally. I saw every person in the course take risks and transform. I am a seasoned leader/executive and I think he is the best facilitator I have ever experienced. He is a rare treasure and I am blessed to have been part of this course.
STRETCH does just that…it stretches your understanding of what a coach is/does, it stretches your thoughts and insights about yourself and your journey and it stretches your bonds with your classmates to learn from their collective experiences and knowledge. This was an enlightening and thoroughly enjoyable class that really pushed you to think from a variety of perspectives and to also really think about who you are, the story you tell and why. I am sad it is over.
What a way to start my journey at MCS! This was my first class related to my Coaching endeavor. The STRETCH class is a marvelous macro-level course about what one can expect in the coaching field. The instructor fostered such a memorable and supportive space and I know I will nurture those friendships for years to come.
The Mindfulness Coaching School has been an amazing resource for me on many levels. I took S-T-R-E-T-C-H! when Ann Marie suggested it would be a great addition to what we’d been working on in our coaching sessions. The class was so inspiring I decided to become a coach myself! I’ve taken 6 classes already and plan to take more. I love Ann Marie’s style of teaching; the academic aspect, the mindful/spiritual piece and the opportunity to work with other like-minded people during homework sessions. Ann Marie is a bottomless source of knowledge and inspiration and I am forever grateful!
S-T-R-E-T-C-H! Becoming The Incredible Coach You Truly Are is an amazing mindfulness coaching class that blew the doors open on coaching practices. A fresh, clean breeze blew in that allowed me to bring my whole self newly to coaching. As an experienced coach, I benefited greatly and I know I will use the skills and practices I learned for years to come.
“Stretch” is a good name for this course. It stretched us all to reach beyond what we thought we knew, dig deeply to experience those paths that we will be coaching on, and stay open and curious about everything.
