Here's what coaches have said about our programs:
"I came to the Group Coaching Essentials program with a vague idea and finished the course with a detailed plan for a course offering using group coaching techniques. Jennifer Britton is an excellent teacher, facilitator and coach. From her initial email to our final laser coaching session she modeled the effectiveness of group coaching techniques and best practices. The course is rich in content and resources which I can refer to in the future. Thank you, Jennifer, for introducing me to the world of group coaching!" - Coach Gina Halsted, May 2013
