This course deepened my understanding and perspective on listening

“This class was beautifully designed to start with clarity and build upon what we were learning as we were ready to hear it.  As a coach trainer, I thought I had a pretty good handle on my listening. Going through this course deepened my understanding and perspective on listening in a way that is transforming both how I teach and how I coach.  It’s a challenging course, which makes it all the more valuable.”

The most powerful professional development program I have participated in

“As an ED who has hired training professionals, this program was the most powerful professional development program I have participated in. I learned so much about myself and how much I have developed from my past experiences, even from childhood. Tony and Brendalyn did an amazing job at having us experience the material, reflect, and come back each week to discover ourselves newly. I know I am a different leader, mother, daughter, wife, and friend because of their training. Thank you!”

I have a plan for mastering Authentic Listening

“Authentic Listening offered me a deeper dive into many of the principles of Ontological Coaching. I have received continuous training in Ontological Coaching for over 15 years, and also have trained and mentored students for 10+ years and still found this course of great value. I now have new practices and ways (language and concepts) to support students and my clients. More than that, I have a plan for mastering Authentic Listening.”

The course is rich with concepts and applications.

“The course is rich with concepts and applications. If I had to point to one thing it is the element of keeping participants “on the court” learning and using distinctions. In a world that is crazy fast and that rewards multitasking, this course combined listening concepts with the embodied work necessary to ground ourselves.”

The real work and learning took place for me between classes

“I think what made this course so powerful was that much of the real work and learning took place for me between classes when I had time to reflect upon what was coming up for me and in ways that totally surprised me. Throughout the course, I had to sit with my resistance and in doing so, I got a birds-eye view and the experience of how prevalent it is in my life—something I wouldn’t have been able to see and experience had I not taken the course.”

I now see what the experience of fully being with someone might be

“This course opened my awareness of when I am listening with‚ nothing in between [me and others]‚ and fully present. I learned to listen to others versus listening to my own internal experiences, maps and chatter. I gained a deeper awareness of observing A LOT of things in the space between me and others. I now see what the experience of fully being with someone might be, and what it is to open the space to allow someone to feel gotten.” “The design of deep intellectual rigor paired with practical application was a rare experience. Thank you.”

This program was rigorous, well-structured, and gave me access to incredibly useful practices

“Being responsible for Leadership and Learning programs I am seeking out best practices for myself and to share with my team. This program was rigorous, well-structured, and gave me access to incredibly useful practices that I have already started putting in place in my work, in my coaching practice, and in my personal life.”
