Deeper Conversations Program


This program has been a great experience, full of learning, new insight, and exposure to other skilled coaches’ styles and techniques. I’m extremely pleased that I chose Deeper Conversations to earn my CCEU’s.”

~Mary T. Miller, PCC

Great to have the input/ideas/perspectives of mentor coaches each of whom I find highly credible as mentors, articulate, endorsing, nimble, and in other ways excellent. I am also greatly enjoying that you are new to me – refreshing new voices. Also great to revisit the coaching competencies – haven’t reviewed them in a long time and meanwhile my coaching has been evolving in its own way, so the review functions kind of as a reality check and opportunity to ask, ‘How am I doing, how am I still honoring the basics, where could I do some fine tuning?

~Sharon Teitelbaum, MCC

At last I have found the place I can come to hear live, high-level coaching that expands my thinking about my own possibilities! Thank you SO much for providing this opportunity to learn and grow. Just one call, and I can already feel the value this brings to my own practice.

Do you ever feel like everyone else understands the ICF Core Competencies, and you are still trying to figure them out? The truth is that it is an endless journey of discovery and conversation and you can earn CCEUs while you are on the journey.

  • What does it mean to be present when coaching?
  • What strategies can you implement to help you build your ability to get and stay present?
  • “Dancing in the moment?” What does that feel like?
  • Learn how to “go with your gut” and use your intuition.

This teleclass series is for coaches who are ready to go to a deeper level of understanding and awareness in their coaching, plus add some new skills to their tool kits.

Jonathan Ward width=I appreciated the opportunity to take this course by phone in a compressed period of time. Carving out 90 minutes twice a week for a couple of months was much easier than I anticipated. I feel I got more than my money’s worth from the program. The diversity of backgrounds in the class, especially having non-US participants, was a definite plus. The opportunity to coach and receive feedback from the other participants was very valuable as well. WELL DONE!!! I’m deeply gratified for Deeper Conversations!

Kathleen FeeIn my journey to renew my ACC, I had the pleasure of attending the Deeper Conversations continuing education series, and working one on one with both Jamee and Sheri in mentor coaching. What a gift. Deeper Conversations brought me a greater understanding and appreciation of the ICF Core Competencies, while allowing me to observe and interact with other coaches of varying levels. The sacred space was filled with opportunities to learn, teach, and grow. The mentor coaching by both Jamee and Sheri has been invaluable. I have strengthened and improved my coaching skills under their guidance, and have gained confidence. I highly recommend both the Deeper Conversations class and Jamee and Sheri as mentor coaches. Thank you both!
