Certified Creative Coach Training Program

The Power of Creative Change

Our fundamental purpose is to train and certify coaches who desire to integrate approaches to creative change into their work with clients. The goal is to equip coaches with the ability to co-create innovative strategies that bring about transformative change personally, professionally, and in the social landscape of our global community. Our graduates continue to demonstrate that creative change can happen within a wide range of professions, including the medical field, the military, the executive suite, K12 through higher education, entertainment, and beyond.

Four Pillars of Creative Change™


Human Wholeness

Our life and leadership coaching model emphasizes the whole of our journeys as professionals and private individuals by focusing on three areas of wholeness, including the whole environment, the whole person, and the whole experience.


Cultural Competence

Our objective is to prepare leaders to reduce limiting beliefs and biases within their organizations and within the communities they impact. Culturally competent coaching skills challenge individuals and organizations to take action toward transformation.


Creative Solutions

Our Creative Approach™ draws upon the work of neuroscience and positive psychology to examine effective strategies for problem solving and goal attainment through the use of effective coaching strategies.


Invigorative Leadership™

Our approach to transformation challenges leaders to invigorate others in the discovery and utilization of the tools, strategies, and skills needed to create change within their organizations, themselves, and their communities.

Allow our life-changing curriculum to take your coaching to a greater and even more effective level.
