What makes this Coach Course different

The Arc of the Forward Focused Conversation is designed to give coaches a structure they can use during the conversation with their clients, leaving enough room for flexibility and experimentation, but also providing focus to the movement of forwarding the client in their own learning.

Natascha is a certified Solutions Focused practitioner, but also uses her knowledge of systemic coaching, the GROW model, non-violent communication, and appreciative inquiry when engaging with her clients in coaching conversations.
