Join Dr. Joel Bennett for the second class in the Resilience to Thrive Coach and "Coachsultant" Certificate

The ADVANCED RESILIENCE COACHSULTANT class - Dates to be announced!


Pre-requisite: Basic Resilience To Thrive Coach training


[1] Coachsultant is a hybrid or part-coach and part-consultant. There is a continuum from direct one-on-one coaching and broader workplace consulting with multiple stakeholders. Combined, the two courses here give participants background in both. They do not, by themselves, represent a full or in-depth training in coaching or consulting. They are in-depth training programs on the topic of worker and workplace resilience and can be approached as a supplement to basic coaching and consulting training.
