A Message from the Director of Coach Education 

I would like to extend to you a very warm welcome from the faculty, administration and coaches that make up ADLER’s world class Faculty of Professional Coaching and Alumni. We are thrilled that you have discovered coaching.

Currently, my personal definition for coaching would be that coaching is a space where people connect to their deep, unbroken core, and bring forward their unique self without apology. As an Indigenous woman, I have learned the value of seeing and hearing beyond the surface, something coaches does each and every day. The work of the coach is that of developing human potential, unlocking a collective wellbeing on people, organizations, sociology, and economy that is our society. A person that has been well coached is indeed a person that makes powerful contributions to important world problems.  

I am energized at the prospect of a future shaped by people who are reconnecting to their inner resilience, wisdom and creativity.  Founded in the 1990’s by Dr. Linda Page, ADLER has a longstanding history of coaching that is known around the world. In joining our community, you will join a network of thousands of trained professionals that use coaching to engage the deepest needs of the world around the globe. Now, more than ever, we need coaches who can help people, communities and organizations engage the path ahead with clarity and compassion. The ADLER coaching program has a crucial role to play in ensuring that people and organizations are coached to engage this essential work, and we hope to help you do just that. 

I am grateful to be with you on your journey, and would like to welcome you to ADLER’s community of learner.
