Inspiration and motivation

"What makes Art of Coaching Institute unique is the time we focus on attendees getting to know themselves and their learning community. We do this through guiding teachers in building awareness of their behaviors, beliefs and ways of being – this is what leads to transformational coaching." — Sherry Kinzel.
