CoachDiversity Programs Can Change Lives

The Executive Certification in Diversity Coaching was transformational in how I approach my work in equity, diversity and inclusion. The training truly pulled out the innate wisdom that I already possessed and empowered me to be powerful. The significant focus on staying razor-focused and coaching one individual at a time to effect systemic change was at the forefront of each day of training, a constant reminder of sustainability of the work we do.

The Executive Certification in Diversity Coaching program was by far one of the best professional development experiences I’ve had in my 20+ year career as a learning and organizational development leader. The program design enabled us to learn from a tremendous faculty of experts who are true scholar-practitioners skilled in creating a dynamic learning experience that attends to what are often difficult topics to unpack and work through using the CoachDiversity approach. I feel privileged to be part of this network of coaches and am already applying what I learned.

I am honored to have been part of this amazing cohort. Towanna Burrous is an incredible leader with an extraordinary gift for helping others tap into and hone their unique skills and abilities. The coaching skills learned in this program have strengthened my ability to be a more effective change agent for racial justice.

Before attending CoachDiversity Institute’s coach training program, I thought power and confidence were things you either had or didn’t have. By the end of the program, one of the most remarkable changes is my understanding that both of these things can be consciously harnessed, built and enacted.

CDI’s training has given me a new lease on my work, and a new, powerful tool — coaching — with which to achieve my life’s goals of more equitable communities that celebrate the unique gifts we each bring. Sometimes life really does deliver exactly what you need at exactly the right time. Thank you, CDI, for everything!

What I liked most about CoachDiversity’s Be the Change Training was learning from visionaries. Sometimes you happen to find a program that is in itself a great program and then you meet and sit under the leadership and know you are going to be a better person and gain state-of-the-art coaching.
