The Transformative Power of Coaching

Faster, Farther,

Has this ever happened to you?  

You attend a workshop and have some BIG aha’s and breakthroughs. You leave feeling uplifted, inspired and empowered with new awareness that’s certain to uplevel your results in life.  

But soon, whether it’s a few days or a few weeks, something happens that sends you right back to your old patterns, fears and reactions. 

Next thing you know you can’t seem to find your way out of a wet paper bag let alone choose a conscious response, and you worry you’ve forgotten everything you learned! 

You may even start to blame yourself or question your ability to create lasting change.  

If that’s you, we’ve got good news.  

There’s nothing wrong with you!  

Life is a dance of expansion and contraction. While you were busy focusing on your development, and in effect expanding, the rest of your environment (and the people in it) were most likely staying exactly the same.  

The "rubber band" effect

Despite your best intentions, it’s very normal for that environment to pull you back in like a rubber band, causing you to contract… and quite often to react. Because, let’s face it, life is what happens in between workshops.  

Get beyond shelf-help

This “rubber band” effect is the reason you sometimes feel a crash shortly after a transformative experience, or why you may struggle to implement your learning into your day-to-day life. It’s why many forms of self help become “shelf-help” and why – when left to their own devices – many people lose momentum around even their most important goals and dreams.  

Growth does not happen in isolation

Fortunately, there is an alternative that can help you continue on your path of expansion and growth with more ease, and a whole lot less reactivity.

You don’t have to do it alone!

Imagine what it would be like...

 ...to have a trusted partner to support you when the rubber meets the road...

...to be right by your side when challenges arise...

...to help you fully integrate all the amazing work you've already done...

What might you be able to achieve in your:  

Personal & spiritual development...
"Big Hairy Audacious Goals"...

Chances are you’re already seeing more possibilities just thinking about it!  

That's why we are thrilled to announce our Private Coaching Program.

For the first time ever, Productive Learning clients will have the opportunity to work privately, 1-to-1, with an expert coach/trainer in an ongoing relationship designed to empower you in creating your extraordinary life.

If you’ve ever wished you had a Productive Learning trainer on speed-dial, this is your opportunity to have that kind of 1-to-1 support!

The 3 Keys to Transformation

Triggers Happen.
Reacting is optional.

At Productive Learning, we know there are 3 keys to transformation:   
Understanding the Past
Awareness in the Present
Vision for the Future

Each plays a critical piece in developing personal mastery. The more you know and understand yourself, the easier it is to see the difference between the historic unconscious reaction and the reality of the current moment with an eye on the future being created. As a Productive Learning client, you have already experienced this in our workshops.

But there’s a 4th ingredient that acts as the “secret sauce” to making transformation stick, and that is… Accountability.  We know that humans are much more likely to keep commitments when they involve another person. 

Think about it… how many times have you let yourself off the hook for something that was important to you the moment a distraction arose?  If you really want to make big changes in your life, you MUST have accountability.

Experience the rewards of personalized coaching!

Thanks to a study from the International Coaching Federation (ICF), there are plenty of statistics that prove the effectiveness of coaching. For example, here are some benefits identified by clients from an ICF survey:  


of clients who hire a coach are satisfied


of clients would hire a coach again


of clients improved their self-confidence


of clients improved their relationships


of clients improved their communication skills


of clients improved their work-life balance

In a similar study, 100 executives from Fortune 1000 companies who received coaching for six months to one year experienced benefits in the following areas:


of executives improved their relationships with direct reports


of executives improved their relationships with immediate supervisors


of executives improved their teamwork


of executives improved their working relationships with peers

Working with my Productive Learning coach has profoundly changed my life for the better.  Being conscious of my default tendencies and noticing when I am acting in accord with those rather than the goals of my best self has allowed me to make small adjustments which together have raised the trajectory of my life.

New to Coaching? It's all about YOU.

Unlike our workshops, in a coaching relationship, you bring the topic and agenda for each session. You can discuss any area of your life that you wish. Our coaches understand that you have everything you need to move your life forward, so rather than give advice your coach will ask you powerful questions to help you discover your own solutions and unpack what you are learning about yourself. 

During each session, your coach will also support you in staying true to your vision, as well as offer insight, encouragement, expertise and tools when appropriate, quite often helping you see and achieve possibilities far beyond what you could envision for yourself!

Coaching is also unlike a traditional “counseling” approach in that it’s not about healing past traumas.  While your past is valuable to understand, rather than continually looking back your coach will guide you in consciously creating your life from this day forward.

Your coach can help you...

Your private coach serves as a partner in increasing your self-awareness, introducing you to crucial mindset shifts, empowering you with valuable tools, and most importantly providing the accountability you need to follow through... AND they’ll be there to celebrate with you when you do!

" My life has forever changed because of Productive Learning.  In short, my transformation to being a more conscious leader in business and father to my family were awakened by what they have taught me that you just can’t get anywhere else. "

David L.

" Coaching with Productive Learning has been an amazing personal and professional growth platform to identify triggers, become aware of my reactions and behaviors (along with learning the history from which they stem from), and work through my triggers, emotions, and behaviors to attain a productive outcome.  The effect this has had on my relationships with my parents, family, friends, and intimate partners has been pleasantly unexpected and amazing."
