I was looking for a program that would provide me with a 'stamp of approval' as I started my coaching business, but I didn't only want the 'stamp' offered by so many weekend courses. I wanted a solid foundation of knowledge and practice. Lumia gave me actionable content from excellent instructors, meaningful and diverse connections with my cohort of coaches, and time to develop the foundation of my business at the same time I was elevating my coaching skills. It is tempting to take the quickest route from point A to point B, but if you arrive at point B without the roadmap to point C, you will be lost. Invest your time and money in a program that will provide a solid certification AND the knowledge, connections and practice you need to run a thriving coaching business. Lumia is that program! At Lumia, all of my unique experience, perspective, and potential were valued and leveraged in a very open and diverse community. Access to thought leaders at all levels of the community was amazing!
