What does it feel like to be coached by a Master Coach? Jodi Sleeper-Triplett holds the distinction of being an ICF Master Certified Coach (MCC). There are fewer than 800 MCC’s worldwide, so training with Jodi means that you are training with one of the best in the world.
Master Certified Coaches are evaluated based on their level of coach training, coaching proficiency and expertise. Master Coaches are known for their ability to coach effortlessly, while moving clients forward towards their goals and dreams. This finely-tuned coaching appears seamless to the clients and to novice coaches, who are learning how to shift from the “doing” to the “being” of coaching. Training with a master coach will open your eyes to the possibilities of excellence in coaching as you embark on your path to coach certification.
