The Institute

Goal Imagery® coach training offers a uniquely broad range of traditional and holistic coaching techniques. The programs are based on the Goal Imagery® method, which connects thinking, feeling, being and doing and provides unparalleled education and hands-on training.

The Goal Imagery® Institute was founded in 2008 by Marianna Lead, MCC, to create a truly comprehensive, holistic learning environment that harnesses the subconscious power of emotion and imagination to help individuals and organizations achieve their goals faster and easier..

All our workshops, seminars and training programs unite thinking, feeling, being and doing – and help you discover the path you should take – for your personal growth and professional success.

We recognize that people have different learning styles, and we strive to give individual attention to everyone who learns with us to ensure that their learning needs are met. We encourage our students to use their natural strengths, abilities, and creativity to make the learning process joyful, fun, fulfilling, and meaningful.

The “Holistic Life, Career and Executive Coach Training” includes traditional and holistic coaching techniques, practical exercises and has a comprehensive online learning platform. The goal is to prepare the students optimally for ICF certification and the work as a professional coach.

With a maximum of 10 students per class & 2.5 hours of instruction per week, the focus is on the practical application of ICF core competencies from the perspective of the Coaching Mastery (MCC).

The training is comprehensive & includes a variety of coaching niches and approaches, such as positive psychology/strength-based coaching, emotional intelligence (EQ), neuroscientific/brain-based coaching, adult education, use of metaphors, images & NLP.
