Coaching Fundamentals - Become an ICF Certified Solutions Focus Coach


"A truly engaging course, with a great balance of concept teaching and practical practice.

 Natascha added so much value to the learning experience with her well thought out approach to delivery and interaction with the class. I feel like this is already having a profound impact on more aspects of my life than just workplace related agile team project coaching. While I have been a leader, coach, mentor and teacher in many practical capacities, I feel like this course has filled in gaps I didn’t know existed.”  ICAgile Quality Survey

"Natascha has an amazing command of the technology and creates a truly interactive experience!

I am a 20 year IT leader and she was more confident in the technology than I. It is obvious why she is a respected and expert consultant/agile coach. She consistently asked powerful and insightful questions as well as challenged all of us in our answers and participation while still being positive and enthusiastic. I learned so much from Natascha and am looking forward to implementing it in my next role.” ICAgile Quality Survey
