Behind the scenes at Vision Coaching, we’ve been working hard over the last couple of years developing a new coaching curriculum.

I have to be honest – there have been many times when I have wondered if it was worth it. 

As every entrepreneur and leader knows, launching a new product or service is a demanding, nerve-wracking and all-consuming endeavor. There were many times where I didn’t know where to turn, and I was far from certain on the outcome. 

We’re delighted to be working with the United Way, Saint John Kings & Charlotte to offer a two-day Coach Approach workshop in Saint John in May.

The in-person workshop, to be held over two days on May 15 and May 29, is designed to equip you and your teams with the modern skills and tools needed to drive empowerment through your organization, increasing engagement and effectiveness.

This program will be an introduction to a pragmatic coaching model that helps you build your coaching skills as well as providing opportunities for practice and feedback. It includes six hours of hands-on practicum sessions. 

Subsidized seats are available for non-profit organizations and businesses thanks to the support of the New Brunswick Department of Post-Secondary Education Training and Labour and the United Way.

Opportunities are limited so act today. For additional information and to register, visit the event page on Eventbrite or contact Chelsie Nightingale at
