In 2011, I completed modules 1 and 2 of Doug Silsbee’s Presence-Based® Coaching program. Both were three-day intensive retreats with two follow-up training and integration calls.
This coaching model and the skills I learned integrated beautifully with my initial coach training, Coaching for Transformation, and my NVC training.
