Testimonial 3

The CFJ program construct, with a mix of genders, races, geographic locations, and professional backgrounds among the coaches, was invaluable. I typically don’t have such a safe space to process out loud and learn with other coaches with a high commitment to DEIBJ. Through my preparation, group discussion and engaging in the questions from my cohort, I realized assumptions I made and other options I had as a coach to help my client even more. And hearing other coaches’ cases and issues broadened my horizon and knowledge, altogether increasing my coaching effectiveness. I often continue applying what I learned, given social justice issues frequently arise in my executive coaching practice. Great program! And certainly expanding my professional network has been an added benefit.
