About Positive Coach Academy

Positive Coach Academy offers unique and powerful learning opportunities at affordable prices. Programs are shaped by a deep understanding of expert globally recognized coaching best practices (ICF Core Competencies and Code of Ethics), real leadership challenges and responsibilities, and the science-based tools and methodologies that come from Neurolinguistics Programming (human performance excellence, communication principles, and natural human motivation) and Neuroscience (how the brain works and how to make change successfully). All programs are guided by the philosophy that by understanding how the mind works, how to achieve precise communication, and how top performance can be modeled, a coach can quickly and effectively facilitate client discovery and growth.

Programs are both IN-PERSON and VIRTUAL and led by expert Faculty.

Positive Coach Academy’s coach certification training programs are ICF-accredited and BCC-approved Coach Specific Training. You learn not only the what and why of coaching, but also the HOW. With tons of supervised practice, individual attention and personal feedback, you leave the program excited and confident about working with clients. Upon completion, you will have the required training hours to apply for your ICF ACC or PCC and your Board Certified Coach (BCC) credentials.

All major credit cards are accepted, and payment plans are available.

Mina and Coach Academy have been both a life changer for me personally and a game changer for my business. Three years ago, I was certified through Mina’s program to add the coaching dimension to my leadership development and training company. I could not have predicted the impact of this decision. The performance outcomes and the financial bottom line of my company have increased exponentially. Mina is a wonderful teacher, a generous human being, and a stellar role model, mentor, and coach.

I have worked with Mina as a coaching client and as a student in Coach Academy. My time with Mina was well invested. She challenges clients in healthy ways. Mina helps clients make meaningful improvement. She helped me clear the way through an obstacle and on the way forward. She’s a great coach and an exceptional teacher.

I can’t thank you enough for your excellent training program which has been such a tremendous foundation on which I am building my new career. The quality of the 8-day in person training program was truly remarkable. It was by far the best training I have ever taken in my life! And that is high praise from me – an adult educator. The quality of the learning materials, the interactive exercises that really helped build the skills and develop new and meaningful relationships with other learners, the flow of the material, the high quality of facilitation, the vast experience that you both brought in the learning environment all added up to an amazing learning experience! There isn’t one thing that I would have changed about the entire experience. And then to top it off you include Group and One-to-One mentor coaching in the price of the training. I am still astounded by how supportive you are and how easy you make it to become a coach. I feel truly blessed to have stumbled upon your training.

Mina Brown, Peggy Dean, and the team at Coach Academy International have thoughtfully and thoroughly constructed a coach training program that’s rigorous, thought-provoking, engaging, and rewarding. It seamlessly combines theory, hands-on practice, and important and useful lessons from their own experience. The lessons extend from coaching protocols to how to establish and manage a strong coaching business. Mina and the faculty are generous in sharing the abundance of what they know, transparent in how they operate, and excited by both what their students bring to the class and what they learn in the class. They’re dynamic and delightful. And if all that weren’t enough, the program is also a tremendous value since it includes not only class time but hours of support through mentor and peer coaching. It was a tremendous experience and I highly recommend it.

I’d also like to thank you for everything that I have learned in these classes as well as everything that I am learning from each of your personally. This experience is making a profound impact on my life, and I truly appreciate the presence and wisdom that you all bring to each class.
