Our Graduates Weigh in

Robert Leung, CTI

Your seminars are a clear, concise, enlightening, and motivating blend of science and humanity.

Rhonda Cimorelli

The CTA program is amazing. Very thorough utilizing Coach Training Accelerator audio program, small classes and a mentor coach. I particularly loved having Nan Einarson as my mentor coach. It’s been 3+ years and my “coach the coach” buddy and I still connect every week.

Betty Dangler

How our own stories shape and mold us is helping my clients create new stories.

Libby Stafford

I was so caught up in your presentation, I was not able to take notes.  I did not want to miss a word.  It is exceptionally helpful to have the replays available.

Kevin W. Daley

I thoroughly enjoyed the seminars and found your insight both motivational and stimulating.  The reference material and exercises are a fantastic resource.

Phillip A. Callicutt, Ed.D., CPC

Since taking the seminar I have used your concept of change and transition as new stories with a number of my clients going through major life transitions.  It is like someone turned a light on in their heads.  The material was great and the delivery was excellent.

Jeff Hentges

This has been the single greatest training that I have received in my 15 year professional career. Prior to completing it, I had done pretty well using my ability to solve problems quickly and create action in myself and others, but this course has taught me that my impact to the organization can be magnified many times by coaching others to do the same. Drawing solutions out versus giving them breeds problem solvers and more work can be done with the same resources over time. It’s powerful, powerful stuff. As a result of Co-Creative Coaching Training, I’m a better listener and I’m more focused on the development of the organization’s human resources rather than just their performance. It’s exactly what I needed to round out my skill set.

Saint Teresa

“The life of God within us.” It is thought that our spirit resides in the center of our bodies near our hearts. Sometimes we refer to it as our heart, receiving messages from there that have the power to awaken our aliveness – “in my heart I know…”

Ann Backes

I expected support and encouragement, but not at this high level. It has been very rewarding.

Gail Mason

The part of the course I like the best and that is helping me build my practice the most, so far, is the course software. It is very well done and useful. I like the examples, resources, sample brochures, etc.

Brenda Louis Kitchener

This is a fantastic program. You guys have all the bases covered. I loved that this program covered everything from learning how to coach to staring your own business and everything in between. No other course that I researched offered all of this.

Mary Alyce Owens

The ‘coach the coach’ sessions and the feedback from those are the heart of the program. Coaching live is where the learning is for me. It builds my confidence and believability.

Lisa Aker

Knowing I have to face the group each week keeps me motivated to stay on top of assignments and make sure I am prepared. I so look forward to each week’s class because it is a solid hour of positive thinking and feedback./

Loree M. Paulson

Overall really has everything I was looking for. It is a good blend of handling the business and marketing aspects of coaching along with developing the right skills and tools. Of all the classes and investigation I did this course always came right back on top.

Blanca Stephens

It’s liberating to know I can apply the principles learned without giving up my own creative signature (approach) in the process.

Thommy Thomas, Ph.D.

Coaching is a professional service providing clients with feedback, insights, and guidance from an outside vantage point. The profession of coaching is similar to the practice of a physician, attorney, or psychologist.

Coaching Career Transitions Graduate

Deborah’s teaching style is both engaging and open–she’s very willing to share her years of experience with all who will listen! The follow-up notes to her classes are extremely helpful and allows for full participation in the class while it is happening!

Coaching Career Transitions Graduate

Thank you Deborah! Your expertise, leadership and passion make learning an engaging experience. I feel so positive and clear about developing my own career coaching practice, it’s exciting. Not only do you offer a wealth of knowledge and effective teaching style, you are approachable and confident, who better to learn from. I look forward to future training with you, please keep me in touch with further coach classes. I love your style and perspective!

Coaching Career Transitions Graduate

I really did enjoy taking your class. I loved that it was filled with content and you taught us (although the coaching opportunities that came up were also great to hear and added to my learning!)”

Leslie Horkin

Tonight was the first night of Dr. David Krueger’s 4 week Seminar …what a great seminar this is going to be. Some of it felt a little over my head…but the Quantum Physics part was really cool! It’s good to know CTA has more courses to keep us going when our class ends.

Fortune Magazine

Asked for a conservative estimate of the monetary payoff from the coaching they got, managers described an average return of more than $100,000, or about six times what the coaching had cost their companies.

F. Turner

A study featured in Public Personnel Management Journal reports that managers that underwent a managerial training program showed an increased productivity of 22.4%. However, a second group was provided coaching following the training process and their productivity increased by 88%. Research does demonstrate that one-on-one executive coaching is of value.

Warren Bennis

In the fields I have studied, emotional intelligence is much more powerful than IQ in determining who emerges as a leader. IQ is a threshold competence. You need it, but it doesn’t make you a star. Emotional Intelligence can.

R.C., CDC Certified Divorce Coach® Program Graduate

I didn’t know that I would enjoy working with all of what goes on in a divorce; the stress, the anger, the breakdowns. What I learned from my clients is how valuable coaching is for them.
When a person in divorce seeks to have a thinking conversation about their situation, they may typically think of their attorney who may be busy and can’t see them right now – maybe in two or three weeks from now. It is not the attorney’s fault for being busy and scheduled, it is just how it is. So people resort to talking with family members, friends, and/or co-workers who may or may not enjoy those conversations. Many a family member has sent their divorcing relative to me because they needed an accessible thinking partner. That is what a divorce coach is, an accessible thinking partner.

 

So all the concerns I had about divorce coaching did not materialize. They were not there. I was making them up. What happened was a discovery that there is an overwhelming need for coaching and the beneficial impact coaching is having on my clients.

A. Adams

Nan, I have nothing but lovely things to say about this class. I thought your class was inspiring and well administered. I appreciate the booklet that came with it, loved the exercises and found it did strengthen me and bring focus, which was my desired outcome.

Lisa Velazquez

If you want to affirm and clarify your life purpose this is a wonderful class to take. Nan provides a safe and nurturing space to explore and share newfound insights with other participants and she gives excellent guidance throughout the course. I especially enjoyed doing the exercises, for example a mind map, or a collage about my life, that showed me where I already am on track and where I need to make adjustments in order to be on purpose. Listening to the experiences of others also was very inspiring. I highly recommend this class.

Napoleon Hill on Coaching

had taken into his business one young man after another, many of them with but little schooling, and by coaching them in the use of this formula, developed in them rare leadership. Moreover, his coaching made fortunes for everyone of them who followed his instructions.

Chris Osborn

There is no more inspiring community than that grown over the last decade at CTA. Coaches whose own path to success is being fueled everyday by the exploration, growth, and inspiration of their students and clients. It’s human development at its very best.

Career Coaching Mastery Program Graduate

I really enjoyed your classes and I could not have signed up at a better time. I really feel like I have a handle on some resources and tools that will help me in my career coaching practice.

Career Coaching Mastery Program Graduate

I wanted you to know that your class has been very helpful to me and I am learning a lot! Please know that your efforts with the class are having quite a significant impact on my life and that you are very generous to have shared all of this information with me. Thank you.

CPA

new perspective on what a coach is and what a coach does.  …usually the best answers/shifts are provided by the client with my help in asking good open ended questions that provoke deeper thinking.

Human Capital Consultant (IT)

The most impactful take-away for me were..The tools on how to implement a formal internal coaching program for my organization; creating the undeniable benefit statement, and setting the stage.  Efforts are now in place to formalize our program, based on the tools we were given with this course.

Deputy Dir. Of Service Operations

This new skill will not only empower me to help my organization achieve its vision and mission, but also make me a better leader and mentor as I can now better assist my staff or peers further their own personal growth as well as professional.

Strategy Consultant

My previous roles were about giving direction and advising; my way, my opinion, my expertise.  I have learned that coaching is an effective way to get a person from Point A to Point B and letting people be part of the process.  While I may still advise and direct, the class transformed my ability to co-creatively involved others in the process.  When I am willing and able to do this, we reach a better outcome.  We are greater than the sum of our parts.

HR Business Partner

I learned how to mentally prepare myself for coaching conversations…  I am a better coach when I do this, more connected to clients, serve them better.  The class also helped me start asking more powerful questions and reminded me to validate the client during the coaching sessions.. this was critical to my co-creative relationships.

VP

Life presents many coachable moments, both professionally and otherwise.  It has strengthened relationships, made me more aware of opportunities to coach.

State Government

My greatest takeaway was developing the ability to ask better questions, having a model in my head that allows me to better structure my conversations, asking powerful questions.

Strategy Consultant

I now am able to “be encouraging and inviting to help others… instead of solving problems I can guide others by asking questions which facilitates their own thought processes.  Biggest AHA and biggest challenge:  I wanted to try to help/solve – that is not the most effective way to do it.

IT Training

This course is about being a change leader in business.. and looking at growth and development differently…  I also appreciate being able to change myself.

HR

This is not a course about information; it’s a course that transforms the way you think and lead.  I learned a new and different way to have conversations with people.

Sr. HR Strategist

It was really helpful to practice the coaching sessions, and to have others provide feedback.  It’s tough to learn something and then never get to really use it in a way where you can get real-time, meaningful feedback.

Facilitator

I use coaching skills during my training sessions… I’m able to reach those participants who really aren’t on board with the training.  Coaching helps me to engage my clients so that it becomes meaningful to them… This has lead to shorter training sessions that are more meaningful and, as a result, implementations have been much faster.

Managing Partner

As a consultant, achieving this “coaching state-of-mind” has gone against my natural instincts as I’ve been programmed to give advice.  The Human Capital Coaching program has allowed for me to become a much better listener and focus on what my client is truly expressing instead of how I would like to respond.  I’m now .. able to identify the real issues of a client at a deeper level.  ..the HCC program enabled me to resolve clients issues and capture new business much more efficiently, ultimately creating greater revenue for my firm.

CEO

This course provided a template for having productive conversations which built trust and made possible a real exchange of ideas… makes it easier to identify blocks and overcome them more quickly… We respond faster to challenges and opportunities

HR

When people came to me with work challenges, I used to tell them what to do or take an active role in fixing it.  I felt constantly pulled off task putting fires out.  Now, I engage them to find a solution and take action.  My team is capable of doing their jobs extremely well; we are all just now realizing what it means for me to empower them to do so. … I also see more “coachable” moments now that I’ve been through the class.

Managing Broker/Partner

“I used to try and solve problems for my employees.  Now I use coaching skills to help them figure out what they need to do and they are doing the work.  I no longer feel overtaxed trying to solve everyone’s problems and the people I work with are better for it.  The people I coach are stronger and more capable.  Human Capital Coaching gave me a template and structure for having productive conversations so that obstacles and challenges can be identified more quickly.  We get more work done in less time and feel energized.”

Partner

“I set a goal of ‘selling 30 hours of pure coaching in the first year after this program.  I did it in a month.” ….Another unexpected benefit the coaching program provided me was to enhance my skills as a professional advisor… it has greatly elevated the relationship on all matters both technical and advisory.

Bruce Bright

“Dr. Jackie, Just thought I would let you know I have been impressed with the (Art & Science of Coaching Couples) course so far. Your follow up downloads set this program head and shoulders above the competition.”

Lisa Manyoky

“I did A LOT of research on coaching curriculum. You were my first choice, though I did my due diligence and checked out other options. Intuition wins…AGAIN! I have come full circle and cannot wait to get started.”

“By the time the course was complete I already had 17 paying clients. What a boost to my confidence!”

Sandra Harris

“I have had the opportunity and great pleasure of making many new friends and associations because of CTA.”

Joe Grieco

“I’ve been a sales coach for a number of years in the financial services industry. Last year I made a career development decision to certify through CTA because I realized that I’d been working with outdated technologies and an incomplete coaching process. Now I’ve learned decisive skills that qualify me to coach on client issues beyond performance and build a comprehensive practice. Hat’s off to certification instructor Dr. Dave Krueger!”

Annie Stone

“The Coach Training Accelerator™ is the backbone of building a successful coaching business as well as being a guide to becoming a masterful coach. It is not only useful now but will be throughout my coaching career.”

Ida Crawford

“My take away from the Certified Coach Program is that now I have the mechanics involved in being a coach. I understand the power of words more than I ever did. This course also allowed me to truly learn more about who I am; i.e. my strengths and weaknesses. I BELIEVE I can do this. I am so excited about my new career. Thank you, Nan. You are an awesome instructor.”

Bob Brenner

“My desire to receive proper life coach training and certification came from the same place of integrity that inspired my weight loss of 253 pounds. I looked into other coaching programs, but CTA’s admissions staff, faculty, content and methods are first-class, and so relevant. There was no competition.

My coach, Chris Powell, inspired me to become a coach myself. Today, as a life coach, I am excited to be able to help others change their lives, too.”
