Just starting out? Try our Conversations at the Growing Edge with Carolyn and Beth 31 October-2 November in the Washington DC area. Or, for our southern hemispheric friends, come join Carolyn and Patrice in beautiful summery Wellington (January 15-17 2017).

Already taken that one? Try our advanced Psychologically Spacious Coaching. You can take it with Jennifer in Wellington (31 October-2 November) or Carolyn in the Washington DC area (November 8-10). (Thanks to the Wellington ECHO participants for brightening up the page, above)

And whether you've taken all of our workshops or none of them, you're welcome to join us at the Coaching for Complexity workshop. You can read a little about the first running of that workshop here, and join Jennifer and Keith in Wellington 23-25 November.

We're trying to make it to 50 reviews and, er, we're not as close as we'd like to be!
