Montgomery County, Maryland

October, 2007: A group of 28 business owners and managers in Montgomery County, Maryland participated in a highly successful two-day training on the Coach Approach. They learned specific, practical ways to integrate the skills they learned into their daily routines with their staff and each other. The training was designed to bring an international cross-section of participants together in a small group to maximize interactive learning and collaborative efforts. The feedback and comments were overwhelmingly positive and enthusiastic. Many received 4 sessions of coaching from certified life coaches following the training. There will be a 3 hour follow-up training in March, 2008. Sydney Frymire, Certified Life Coach, Licensed Clinical Social Worker

March 12, 2008 Follow-up Training: The participants used the circle process to reconnect and reflect on the progress they’ve made in the last 4 months since the training in 2007. They participated enthusiastically in two exercises to practice their listening skills and ask powerful questions. In closing, they used the circle process to create a plan to continue meeting as a group to coach each other. The group consensus is that the Coach Approach training was the most effective training they’ve had in their careers. Sydney Frymire, Certified Life Coach, Licensed Clinical Social Worker.
