Learn Skills for Change Coaching
Skills for Change Coaching is one of the few coaching approaches that begins with an analysis of systemic power in someone’s life.  Rather than assuming that a client is capable of making a change individually and that the only obstacle is internal, Skills for Change Coaches help clients assess their internalized and external power and oppression to determine how real scarcity of resources, energy, skills, and power could be impacting their efforts.


Once client and coach have an understanding of how systemic power is influencing the client’s progress, Skills for Change Coaches then bring the most current and effective transformative change practices to help the client achieve their intended outcomes.  A session might include conversation for insight, standing practices for development of skills and embodied aliveness, and bodywork to create more ease and space for choice.

The Skills for Change Coaching Workshop
You’ll learn the key theoretical models and practices that make Skills for Change Coaching so successful in helping clients get more of what they want in relationships, communicate more cooperatively, and achieve their dreams.

The workshop/apprenticeship program is open to individuals, coaches and practitioners who want to embody Skills for Change Coaching theory and practices. It is also a prerequisite to be certified as a Skills for Change Coach. For more information on the Skills for Change Coaching Certification Program, click here.
