Recognized Industry Champions
Our leaders were bold champions for coaching from the beginning. As coaching emerged in the early 90’s as a distinct field of practice in North America, we contributed thousands of volunteer hours to clarify and articulate the standards for coach demonstration competency as well as approaches for curriculum to ensure consistency and excellence while supporting the unique artfulness of each coach trained. We sustain our roots today as volunteer leaders at the global and local level for the International Coach Federation, by being practicing ICF Credentialed Member coaches, Certified Mentor Coaches and Course Leaders offering innovations for coaching training, advanced coach development, coaching services and the application of coaching in organizational settings.
inviteCHANGE practitioners catalyze people to engage boldly, coach purposefully, partner respectfully and lead authentically. We witness that:

Learning that Drives Thriving
The empowering outcome of generative coaching in organizations occurs when leaders generate an environment of acceptance, trust, curiosity, open-minded listening and well-grounded decision-making. It is a way of being we call, Generative Wholeness. This is available personally as well. When individuals acknowledge, and access a dynamic capacity to originate, create, learn and produce results – in other words, be generative – potential is liberated. Combining this with wholeness, the freedom to express from our Essence yields an ability to embrace change and diversity with new behaviors and skills that foster productivity, innovation, civility and effectiveness in every part of our lives.
Our Learning Philosophy
In order to generate sustainable change that improves performance, leaders must engage team members differently than tradition suggests. The engagement required today is a process that requires bold and creative behavior that enables others to break through limitation. Each of us is a leader and we must learn to accept that each person is whole, capable, resourceful and creative. This mindset creates the climate for others to liberate potential.
Liberating potential creates a breakthrough that is generative and flows from a well of energy and possibility that springs from within. It manifests itself as a clear and conscious presence that is fearlessly creative and unconditionally curious. It is a purposeful choice guided by precision and grace that helps leaders to coach purposefully, partner respectfully, and lead authentically. Through the experiences of our lives we gain perspective and when we engage with each other in a mutual learning environment catalytic insight generates.
This describes the quality you can expect from an inviteCHANGE learning experience. We foster alignment and action that increases the level and availability of individual engagement so that each person becomes a confident agent and navigator of change, and to be the cause of that change. To break old patterns and bring wholeness forward, each of us must chose to contribute our whole selves to the process and "Be the Cause."

- Engage boldly
- Coach purposefully
- Partner respectfully
- Lead authentically
