Coaching Academy

Coach Approach Leadership Academy™ 

Develop coaching skills to shift culture in your profession or become a coach as your profession.

Whether you are a business owner, executive, leader, manager or coach, the game-changer is this:


Your ability to coach effectively and create sustainable change makes the difference between achieving long-term success...or facing the cost of being unproductive = underwhelming results.

The right training makes the greatest difference

While high achieving leaders and coaches are naturally drawn to help people see their possibilities and inspire action, many don’t realize that coaching is a specific set of skills that is very different from consulting or mentoring (and a whole lot less work)!

The good news is, with the right training and a proven methodology, it is a learnable skill you can master, no matter what your background is.

Change lives beginning with your own!

Hear what Dana had to say about her experience: 

Dana emerged from our program feeling peaceful because she could now say “this is the time I have, this is what's important and what I can get done.”

From Managing Partner to now CEO of Wright Rehab, she has the tools to help others. When her team approached her with endless questions, she helped them dig deeper to find the answer, instead of always having to have it herself. She now has more time to develop the organizational strategic initiatives and personal projects and passions.
