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™
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.
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.
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.
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.

Meet the ACC Team
I just completed a four-day weekend intensive from the Academy of Creative Coaching. I’m not the same person I was before. This has been a transformative experience along with an excellent education in becoming a certified coach.
The instruction was phenomenal and top-notch.
I appreciated the vast wealth of information and the compassion and care from the instructors.
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 Edmonds
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
The most transformational training I’ve ever experienced!
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.
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
Thank you, Coach Dan for these great teachings and techniques you have provided us!”
