Transformational Training: The Choice in Coaching

The Choice in Coaching: Arbinger’s Mastery Training for Coaches (CIC)The Choice in Coaching: Arbinger’s Mastery Training for Coaches (CIC) polishes the heart-mind mirror so that pure light and true helpfulness are the invitations offered to clients.

For the last sixteen years, it has been a comprehensive learning environment created to deeply master Arbinger’s wisdom found in Leadership and Self-Deception,The Anatomy of Peace, and The Outward Mindset.The program is a 15-week teleconference with coaches participating from many countries around the globe.

At the 10-year celebration of the CIC, Choice in Coaching graduates were asked what they would tell coaches thinking of taking this course, they had this to say about the program:

  • This is a game changer. Worth every minute of time and effort. This program really teaches the tools needed to create change for yourself and others.
  • Nancy and Sharon are the best teachers I have ever met.
  • You will learn the core Arbinger Principles deeply and it will have a profound impact on your life and the lives of the people you coach.
  • I had a good understanding of Arbinger Philosophy and tools before I started. I feel like it is part of my DNA now instead of a tool to use.
  • I would say it was the best decision I have made for myself in a long while and the work I did on me has led to beautiful insights and changes in my heart and my life. I feel more connected to my clients and myself. I can listen better. I have a quiver of tools to work with. Arbinger became the glue that put it all together.

The CIC program has not only transformed hundreds of coaches’ lives, it has become a powerful motivating force for change in their clients’ lives.
