Introducing: Quadrant 3 Leadership
Coaching Certification

A 10-week coaching certification showing you how to stay sane
while helping your clients get unstuck

Have you ever had a client who seems to have the same coaching call…week after week? 

Rather than doing their work, they’re just spinning their wheels. Full of excuses for why they aren’t making progress. 

Does it feel like you want their growth more than they do? And you worry you don’t have the tools to navigate them 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 successful, seemingly inspite of himself. I started dreading our calls because I felt like I wasn’t doing enough. It started to feel like I must not be a good coach. Like I wasn’t the right person to move him forward. 

That forced me to analyze all my coach training, my graduate studies in organizational leadership, and my more than a dozen years of growing a coaching practice.

That process helped me pull together 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 them the Quadrant 3 Leadership framework.

Now you can learn the same tools. They are a time-tested set of strategies and practices that give you confidence in every coaching call. With them, you know you have multiple ways to help the person you’re coaching. 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 grow your practice in the process.


The Quadrant 3 Leadership Coach Certification

This program is specifically designed to give you the tools to specifically help your clients through stop spinning their wheels.

In this 10-week, in-depth certification course, we’ll break down each topic in detail. Each week, we’ll

  • meet for 90 minutes to delve into a topic,
  • take action on that tool or strategy, and
  • share what we’re learning so we all benefit from the real-world application and discoveries.

In this program, you’ll

  • Learn why coaching is different from consulting or managing – and an essential skill needed for leading
  • Understand 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

“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!”
