Thank you, Coach Meg! You refer to coaching as ‘a very sophisticated form of facilitation... of someone else’s learning, growth, creativity...’. And, you indicated that ‘when you become a coach, you sign up for lifelong change and growth on a steep trajectory...’. It resonated very much with me. The world needs more visionaries like yourself with courage, confidence, curiosity, and connections to develop and implement transformational programs. Thank you for leading the way!

I want to say thank you for your sharing your insights and knowledge in our Coaching Psychology program. I gained clarity on a number of things that are very important, and I learned several tools that I know will help me grow (I used one this morning, in fact!).  Thanks again for all you do.

Thank you again for the great course!  I immediately began to implement many of the coaching techniques I learned in a much more intentional and thoughtful way - and the results are outstanding!

The concept of competing commitments has transformed my life and both my organizations. Unfortunately, I have barely slept since I got back to Texas. Everyone on my team has said that you have caused them a lot of additional work. Ha.
