Course Prerequisites

Introduction to Relationship Coaching


Laurie did an excellent job in assigning relevant homework, most of which we could put directly into practice in coaching. She helped me add many tools and techniques into my tool kit that I am already putting into practice! She was well informed, continued to hold us accountable throughout the class and had experience which aided in class examples.
