The Power of Creative Change
The Academy of Creative Coaching’s fundamental purpose is to train coaches to specialize in creative change, equipping them with the ability to develop and implement innovative strategies that bring about transformative change personally, professionally, and in the social landscape of our global community. Through our variety of specializations, we demonstrate creative change can happen within a variety of areas, including the medical field, personal relationships, the executive suite, or college campuses.
Four Pillars of Creative Change™
The Creative Approach
The Creative Approach draws upon the work in brain research to examine how to utilize intelligence, inspiration, and innovation to creatively facilitate positive change.
Grounded in positive psychology, coaching as a profession is designed to help individuals assess their current situations, solve problems, and take action toward achieving their goals.
As an institution committed to making a positive global impact, our curriculum incorporates a strong emphasis on cultural competence.
Creating change as a coach means building a sound business. Our curriculum covers public speaking, pricing, marketing, social media, and writing a business plan.
Allow our life-changing curriculum to take your coaching to a greater and even more effective level.

This was really so valuable for me, and I enjoyed each and every day, learned about myself as well, and that always helps
Dr. Wendy EdmondsCertified Coach, Director of Research and Consultant, The Hudson Group
I had a great time in this class that we just had. It’s interesting that, for a coaching class, you are being trained to be a coach to others, but in reality I’ve learned a lot about myself. I’ve been challenged a lot over these last four days, it’s been a great thing

Becoming a successful life Coach and public speaker have always been an aspiration of mine and I could not locate a better trainer to help me along this path than the Academy of Creative coaching. After completing the intensive program in Houston I knew for a fact that I could coach anyone. The supportive and nurturing environment created in ourspace was critical and made the beauty of vulnerability a normal part of the experience. You learn life-changing strategies to improve the quality of life not only for clients, but for yourself.
Fatemeh FatehiCertified Coach and Director of Human Resources
You changed the game for me in early July, during the Academy of Creative Coaching’s PCC training. The information was amazing but it was your presentation of the strategies that made everything feel so accessible. Your support continues to push me out there. You are valued. You are appreciated. You make an impact.

Thank you for being authentic, vulnerable, and transparent, as it’s in those moments learning and growth has room to occur, and I know it did for me largely because of all of your contributions during our training together

The breakout sessions provided a safe space for future coaches to hone their skills and receive meaningful feedback. The Academy of Creative Coaching’s ability to observe our sessions in a non-threatening manner, while coaching us through our sessions was a highlight to me. This was a great experience and I am hopeful that we can continue our work together
