I would describe my Coach Academy experience as life changing. This extensive training prepared me to take the next real steps into my journey of becoming a coach. The intensive coach training by Mina Brown and Shelley A. Smith was full of detailed information, guidance, techniques, and recommendations. It is important for me to state that each and every question asked was answered. As a participant, I experienced being a coach and a client. These were real coaching experience sessions. I learned so much from Mina and Shelley, as well as from my awesome fellow participants, our coaching observers, and guest presenters. Thank you, Mina, for talking to me prior to signing up. You will never know how much it helped. I left this training feeling empowered to take my next steps as a Professional Coach to becoming a Certified Professional Coach. Thanks and appreciation to Mina, Shelley, Faye, and all my fellow cohort Professional Coaches. I look forward to more learning and laughter and air hugs with each of you.
