What is coaching?
Many people confuse coaching with therapy, consulting, or mentoring. Although coaching can provide many of the same benefits, the primary role of a coach is to help the client find answers within themselves. The coaching process helps clients identify thought and behavior patterns and see new choices and possibilities.

What the Graduates are saying...
"To anyone considering the training, I'd stay stop considering it and jump! It will be well worth the time and money invested. When I first joined the program, I felt sure I wanted full-time coaching to be the next step in my career and wanted to prepare.
However, the training has allowed me to show up more powerfully in every aspect of my life. I'm better at my current job. I'm a better husband, father, and friend because I have learned to build trust, create space for vulnerability, and ask empowering questions. Even if I did not want to become a coach, the training has truly helped me live my life in a more powerful, intentional way. Because of the training, I see the people around me more clearly and with greater compassion. I am more confident in my ability to help others with their struggles and have greater clarity around my own struggles.
I now feel confident in my ability to have an impact as a professional coach, something I struggled with prior to the training."
"After 6 years of coaching and courses, this training has increased my coaching skills more than anything else!
If you want to be an amazing leader or coach, this training is essential. To truly listen to others and ask powerful questions to help others WANT to grow and change!
I learned how to truly and deeply connect with others, create a safe environment to allow others to create solutions and take action! I learned how to ask powerful questions that lead to growth and not lead coaching clients to my answer but rather to help them find the answer inside of them."
"By going through this training I have grown personally and feel I am prepared to be a true coach and take on clients.
The understanding of the role of coaching and how to ask the right questions and observe and notice the clients answers, tone, body language, facial expressions, words, while recognizing cognitive distortions has really helped me serve others better.
I would highly recommend anyone who wants to be a coach to go through this program with Elevated Academy. The environment is informative and fun. I feel confident and competent with what Diana has taught. The camaraderie she has created with our group is also awesome."
"I've gotten amazing compliments for my coaching skills. This training has given me opportunities to grow as a person and as a coach. My self confidence is much higher than before.
I have gotten some amazing clients and my other business is growing because of it. I learned how to effectively coach people using tools to help people learn to trust themselves to know that they have their answers inside of them."
"The Academy gave me a voice, and allowed me the confidence to show up in my power. I’m truly listening and communicating so much better in all areas of my life. I’ve gained skills that have allowed me to help others let their light shine and recognize they have options.
The academy helped me to change for the better, showing up using my talents and gifts with confidence. The skills you learn from here will not only help you in business but in all of your relationships."
"The coach training program was way more than I had expected. The information that was learned and practiced with all in the group was invaluable. The information that is presented in this program will help me in so many ways, not only with coaching but in life itself.
What this has given me is an awareness of how asking deeper questions, and pausing longer after the questions, will result in deeper thoughts and answers in life and how to get the results I desire. This is an AMAZING program and if you have a desire to coach others, even family members and yourself, this program will help all involved achieve so much more out of life.
The program was taught by Diana, but the learning came from each individual in the group. So much great information to up-level my life and then be able to use it to help others do the same!"
