“I enjoyed participating in Catherine’s group session. She was a fantastic guest, particularly because she’s an out of the box thinker who was able to open up the group and dig into our energy quickly and effectively.I’m beginning to have a better understanding of how to incorporate exercises into group sessions and use them as tools to foster conversation and insights.
— JORDAN HENDIN, PCC - COGNITIVE BEHAVIORAL COACH
“What was particularly impactful for me was understanding and embracing the notion that there is a specific group coaching aesthetic apart from team coaching and 1on1 coaching that once learned helped me to completely redesign my own group coaching offering.
— ANTHONY ROBERT NOVO - EXECUTIVE AND LEADERSHIP COACH
“Dom and Maribel are truly gifted and talented coaches who show up every session with vibrant energy and innovative group coaching techniques.I left the program with a clear understanding of group coaching, a solid framework and a robust toolbox to launch my own group coaching!
— EVE CORTES - EXECUTIVE AND LEADERSHIP COACH
“I signed up for the Group Coaching Training because I felt disconnected from how to use my coaching skills in a group. As a result, I’d fallen into a place where I was giving advice instead of asking questions and helping my clients uncover their own insights.

This program was amazing! It helped me reconnect to my coaching wisdom and step into my power. My groups are now so much dynamic. I’m not the only one providing insight because I feel much more confident to invite the members to coach each other. I have an amazing toolkit of probing questions, icebreakers, fun and insightful templates. I highly recommend the program.
— SARAH KOWALSKI - FAMILY BUILDING COACH
“I joined the GCHQ program after starting my first group coaching program. I have learned a ton in 12 weeks — everything from creating a container and a safe space to how to manage challenges while facilitating a group. As a kinesthetic learner, I especially appreciated the opportunity to test out ideas and receive constructive feedback.

Dom and Maribel are true professionals and experts in group coaching. They are extremely generous with their time, resources and support.

Most importantly, I believe I have made some incredible friendships within my cohort whom I can count on in my solopreneur journey.

I highly recommend their program to any coaches committed to improving their work and making an even greater impact.”
