“I am a physician, psychiatrist and board certified coach who has been coaching regularly. Despite my extensive training on wellness and motivating patients, I found this course to be extremely useful and will contribute greatly to my practice. The time was well spent and generally a very efficient learning method because of the exposure to so many masters teaching the essence of their work in a practical and concise manner. It was like reading a new book every week! The tools presented were directly applicable for use with clients. As a bonus, I learned about myself through the direct, personal exposure to the assessments. This was a great course, and I saved thousands by not having to travel! Thanks for all your hard work in creating such an experience!”
