Do you ever feel like you’re at the end of your rope, needing something that will help your team or your clients get unstuck?
Quadrant 3 Leadership
A 10-module coaching certification showing you how to be Resilient
while helping your Staff or Your clients get unstuck
Have you been promoted into a leadership position…and now feel bewildered? You have good practices and skills. But those don’t seem to be helping your team any more?
Or are you a consultant who seems to want your client’s success more than they do? Week after week, they have the same excuses. Excuses like “Oh, I was to busy to do that.” Or “I meant to do that but this week I’ve had so many unexpected crises to solve. I just didn’t have time.”
Does it feel like you’re just spinning your wheels? And you worry you don’t have the tools to help your team or your client navigate through this inertia?
I get it. I’ve been there.
A few years ago, I had a client that made my head spin.
He was outwardly successful. He ran a growing organization that was well respected. But as we worked together, I realized his success seemed to be in spite of himself.
I started dreading our calls because I felt like I wasn’t doing enough. Like I wasn’t the right person to move him forward.
Sessions start Sept 7!
That forced me to analyze my two decades of coach training, my graduate studies in organizational leadership, and my more than a dozen years of growing a coaching practice.
Out of that emerged a system and a set of tools. Tools that helped this client get unstuck. And tools that helped me regain my confidence. I’ve been using these tools ever since.
I call it the Quadrant 3 Leadership framework.
Now you can learn the same system. This is a time-tested set of strategies and practices that give you confidence in every call or meeting. With these tools, you know you have multiple ways to help the person you’re working with. The Quadrant 3 Leadership Certification will not only show you the framework, you’ll understand what tool or strategy is appropriate to use in any given situation. And, unlike other coach certification programs, you’ll even learn how to market your practice in the process.
The Quadrant 3 Leadership Coach Certification
This ICF-accredited program is specifically designed to give you the tools to specifically help your clients or direct reports stop spinning their wheels.
In this in-depth certification course, we’ll break down each topic in detail. In each module, we’ll
- take a deep dive into a topic,
- have space to talk about it with the other class participants,
- take real-world action on that tool or strategy, and
- share what we’re discovering as we adapt the framework into our existing jobs and businesses.
In this program, you’ll
- Learn why coaching is different from consulting or managing – and why coaching is an essential skill needed for leading
- Discover why all high performers get stuck – and how to get them moving again
- Experience over a dozen real-world, time-tested ways to help your clients more forward – giving you confidence for each call
- Market your coaching and grow your practice during the course – even if you’re a coach within a company

Is this program 5 weeks or 10 weeks?
Yes! We offer this coaching certification is a 10-week course. But from time to time, we offer a version of the ten modules in 5-weeks. If you’re interested in the 5-week version, let Marc know by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Are there scholarship options?
Yes. A goal of this certification is to provide a diverse experience for all participants and deep exposure to various perspectives and backgrounds. To help make that a reality, limited partial scholarships are available. If you are interested in being considered for a partial scholarship, simply answer the scholarship question on the application.
I'm not a coach or consultant. Is this the right program for me?
Great question! While coach certification makes sense for coaches and consultants, it’s also perfect for CEOs and other leaders who realize leadership requires new skills. While we get rewarded as employees for solving problems, leaders doing the same start getting called “micro-managers.” Leadership requires an ability to help others solve problems. Leadership requires coaching skills. Skills this program teaches. So, yes, it likely is the right program for you.
“Beware the faint of heart: this program is not your average educational experience. This process – in conjunction with my own journey as a coachee – has been transformative. Not only did I add a whole bunch of tools to my toolbox, but I’ve really reframed and clarified the way I think about how best to support my clients in a way that honors and supports their inner awesomeness.
“Sure, I could have read the books on my own (and often I do). But there’s no way I would have come out feeling like I could actually do the thing. The difference for me was in Marc’s thoughtful design, masterful facilitation, and intentional community-building.”
“I’m thrilled to add the Quadrant 3 Leadership coaching certification to my consulting practice. Not only has the training been helpful in improving my current work with clients but it’s opened up another line of services that I can offer to new and existing clients.
“This has created a wonderful opportunity to go back to previous clients and work with them again. I’m also able to add these services to prospective clients as a value-add, making proposals even more successful.
“If you’re currently consulting and want to improve your practice or add a highly in-demand revenue stream, this certification is an absolute must. I’m on track to get a 200% return on investment from this training alone in the next year!”
