We are saddened and outraged by the murder of George Floyd, fueled by racism through the hands of multiple police officers in Minneapolis, MN USA. Mr. Floyd’s heinous murder provides yet another urgent call to the work needed to dismantle systems that perpetuate inequities and allow for acts of violence, especially in the Black community. We stand in solidarity with our Black colleagues and communities in the pain and grief of losing yet another precious soul to systemic racism. As an organization, we recommit our stand for social justice, equity and creating safe spaces where all humanity, regardless of race or ethnicity can thrive.

                Delve into a holistic curriculum to help people create a better future. Coaching for Transformation goes beyond theories, principles, and models and works with clients on a deep level. You learn how to coach the whole person: the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual.

                You'll have weekly teachings, demonstrations, practice, and discussions that focus on real-life applications. Between sessions, you put the teachings into practice. As you discover your strengths, creativity, and core values, you develop the confidence to coach any client on any issue.

                Coaching for Transformation takes place in a supportive learning community where you will discover how to put your clients in the driver’s seat. And that’s only the beginning.

                The 5 pathways to alignment support deep transformation:

                1. Exploring Needs and Values – Help your clients become conscious of their underlying needs so that their core values snap into focus. This awareness provides a blueprint for making decisions. When clients become aware of what motivates them, they create energized, values-driven action plans.
                2. Experiencing the Moment – Whether they are facing daunting obstacles or cool opportunities, invite your clients to experience the present moment. As they honor the intuitive wisdom of their bodies, explore their emotions, and embrace resistance, they can connect with their authenticity and life force before moving into action.
                3. Expanding the View – When your clients hold limiting beliefs, you can help them explore and embody a wide range of viewpoints. This playful approach helps clients release disempowering viewpoints and embrace new possibilities – and new ways of being.
                4. Envisioning the Future – Discover new methods of visioning that help your clients awaken. Learn how to open new possibilities by engaging the right brain, visualizing, and creating a more compelling future.
                5. Embracing the Shadow – Explore multiple parts of the psyche and embrace their positive intent. Working with your clients’ inner world inspires them to honor all of who they are—and connect to the deep reservoir of wisdom known as the Self.

                Each module is highly experiential with rich feedback.

                Beyond the 5 pathways, additional modules cover:

                • Welcome to Coaching – Explore 3 levels of listening to help clients connect to their passion. Embody the 5 principles of coaching to honor your client's innate wisdom.

                • Skills: The Coaches Palette – Experiment widely to learn the nuances of 23 coaching skills and when to apply them.

                • Culturally Aware Coaching – Deepen your awareness of power, privilege, and culture so that you can easily coach people from any culture or background.

                • Calling out the Power – Learn bold coaching methods to help your clients get unstuck and awaken to their full power. Find out how this requires you to step out of your comfort zone—as you ask your clients to do the same.

                • The Business of Coaching – Identify, design, and launch the coaching practice that is right for you. You’ll learn the nuances of starting a coaching business, marketing, pricing, and attracting clients—so your practice becomes sustainable.

                • Soul and Spirit – Explore the realms of soul and spirit, their relationship to coaching, and help spiritually-oriented clients deepen their connection to those realms. You'll also learn to coach secular clients as you develop your intuition and explore life purpose. 

                • Celebration and Completion – Integrate your learning, celebrate your journey and your graduation as a Certified Professional Coach!

                What Our Graduates are Saying


                I was blown away by the vulnerability, caring, and generosity of the instructors. I wanted that authenticity. They opened up a whole new world for me. Life changing. Worth every penny and more. —Sarah Lightfoot

                The CFT program was the most challenging, uplifting and life-changing experience that I have ever had. —Rowena Zabrodsky

                The supportive community and experiential focus was so valuable. There’s nothing better than learning by doing. —Sharon Taub



                We are building the capacity for all people to live more whole and vibrant lives. That’s powerful. —Michael Wise

                I got five paying clients during the program, all of whom are still working with me for longer than their original three month commitment. —Stephanie Lazzara

                I loved getting to work with seasoned coaches who have a social justice lens, which is so rare in the coaching field. CFT gave me tools to support the unique needs of activists and helped me accomplish some huge goals. Even better, it’s having a ripple effect on some really powerful social justice movements. —Manish Vaidya

                 My life has changed in a profound way because I am practicing authenticity and vulnerability. Other coaching programs don’t work with diversity and inclusion, which I found useful as a white male. The work we did helps me connect with a broader spectrum of people at a deeper level. —Eric Couillard

                The work on diversity, power, and privilege was central. The instructors created a safe space for me, as a Chicana, to release the painful experiences of sexism and racism. I could safely tell my truth about how microagressions regarding race impact me. That was the most powerful part of the course. —Maria Loya

                 The best part of CFT was the bond that formed between me and many of my classmates. I gained some wonderful new family members and a fabulous business partner, too! —Cindy Gordon

                5 Reasons to Choose Coaching for Transformation


                Maria Michael Leslie Faculty Retreat EVENTMentor feedback – Going beyond theory, principles and models, you will coach many people on real issues. You get to work with several mentors, both in small groups and one-on-one. Your mentors help you identify your strengths and give you rigorous feedback to take your coaching to the next level.

Our faculty is committed to the respect and lifelong learning about different cultures and nationalities and shifting the demographics of the coaching profession by making coaching not only more accessible but more welcoming. The ability to coach across differences is vital in today’s world of diverse organizations and nuanced social change initiatives.

                Deep, lasting change – Many coaching models just scratch the surface—focusing on short-term impact. In the Coaching for Transformation program, you’ll be diving into uncharted depths to help clients break through limiting beliefs, tap the wisdom of their bodies, identify their emotions and understand their needs. From that grounded, centered place of deep awareness, clients can develop strategies and take actions that honor their values and drive social change.

                Supportive learning community – As a student you won’t be stuck on an island with a “how to” manual. In fact, you’ll interact with the same peers for the duration of the course—creating trusting, lasting relationships as you collectively celebrate successes and support each other’s development as coaches.

                Business development – What good is it to become a certified coach if you don’t have clients? Coaching for Transformation includes a powerful business development program that helps you start working with clients even before you graduate. You’ll discover your unique gifts and develop marketing messages that reach your specialty niche. With many tools under your belt, you can get your practice up and running quickly.
