For many years, I was not fully clear about my true calling until when I came across Coaching Choice College online. Even though I have been serving as a Pastor for quite some time, I felt that what I was doing was only a piece of what I am here on earth for. Through coaching and training under Clare, I have had clarity about my true calling. The 30-hour course I took has equipped and empowered me to get coaching skills and has also helped me launch my own coaching business in addition to my pastoral ministry. Thanks a lot to Dr. Steffen for the guidance and insights she has provided me with in the process. I would strongly recommend anyone, in need of becoming a professional coach, do it through Coaching Choice College. Dr. Steffen, you’re the best!

This training has been fantastic. I began the coaching training in a specific direction for my non-for-profit but it became quickly apparent the choice model is applicable and useful in my business, family, and general life. I have grown tremendously through the course and training and I’m excited to share my learning with others. Clare is a wonderful, compassionate, highly knowledgeable person with whom you work one-on-one with in completing the training.

I elected to work with Clare for 60 hours of coach training, and have found that Clare is an invaluable coach trainer. She consciously considers deeper ways of understanding our shared humanity, and ingeniously develops practical applications of this understanding to advance our capacity to thrive. Clare creates and delivers new content to the field of coaching that is brilliantly fresh, wildly rich, and thoroughly substantial. With all certainty, I know that the field of coaching and the emerging wave of social entrepreneurs will benefit and advance from the immense value that Clare delivers.

I completed the Wellness Coach Training Certificate program with Choice College in April, 2012.      It was a wonderful one on one experience which made it possible to not only receive an in-depth review of the subject matter but as critical, I was afforded many discussions exploring specific opportunities for development of my personal coaching business.  Clare Steffen is a genuinely seasoned and caring teacher and practitioner.  I would recommend this program to those professionals who are expanding their psychology practices as well as those who are leaving managed care.

Dr. Clare Steffen is a wonderful coach trainer and educator. The adjectives that come to mind as I seek to describe her are, caring, compassionate, and wise. I find that she has a particularly good way of asking the right questions that challenged me both intellectually and emotionally. This means she listens, she understands, and she offers sound guidance from the depth of knowledge she has acquired.  I enthusiastically recommend Dr. Clare Steffen to anyone who might need her services.

I recently completed Dr. Steffen’s East Meets West coach training course and found it to be informative and relevant to my practice as a behavioral health therapist.  I particularly enjoyed the one on one format which allowed me to customize the information to my clientele base and Dr. Steffen’s insights and experience were invaluable.

The East meets West coaching program offered by Coaching Choice College was an excellent complement to my previous coaching instruction and experience.  The program’s theoretical emphasis on personal understanding of clients, their needs and their motivations contrasted well against the functional focus of other programs I have studied, which tended to be dry and less illuminating.  The East Meets West curriculum was customized to my personal needs and goals, and instructor Clare Steffen offered practical advice from her many years of experience that I found very helpful as I launch my coaching business.
