View this animation short to learn about our methodology.
Our innovative coaching methodology is dedicated to supporting individuals in clarifying and living into a bold vision for their life and purpose in the world. We do this by coaching the whole person to ensure that their entire internal system is aligned with the vision, they know and draw on their innate gifts in support of the vision, and they have a clear roadmap with mile markers for fulfilling the vision.
This methodology is a blend of three primary models – Internal Family Systems (IFS), The Five Stages of Gift Development and Mapping Your Internal Influences. IFS was developed by Dr. Richard Schwartz, whom Brian trained with personally – and the other two models were developed by Brian over the course of his 25-year coaching career. These models are contained within a meta framework of a visioning process that clarifies what any individual is ready to create, who they are ready to become, and what they are wanting to feel or experience along the way.
This whole system approach to coaching is an antidote to a large part of the shadow of the current coaching industry. Too often coaching unknowingly aligns only with the parts of the client already enrolled in any given change initiative and ignores, shames, overrides or even tries to annihilate the parts of the client that may be fearful, resistant or skeptical. Not only does this coaching approach not work ultimately, it can create harm for the client.
of Our Coaching Methodology
The client’s vision is the true north compass point and context for all coaching with the client.
The client’s innate intelligence is the supreme guide of the coaching experience and supersedes any external inputs from the coach.
Consent is needed from the client at every stage of the coaching process – from the overall scope and direction of the coaching to choices made in any given moment during an individual coaching session.
All parts of the client’s system are welcome in the coaching process and seen as important resources. Coaching must never demonize, shame, override, bypass, minimize or try to annihilate any part of the client system.
All coaching works toward whole system alignment regarding any stated goals rather than aligning only with parts of the client that are already bought in and dedicated toward achieving those desired outcomes.
Our methodology is multidimensional and incorporates cognitive, emotional, somatic and spiritual elements.
At the core, clients are learning to develop self leadership – the practice of leading one’s life in right relationship to all parts of the individual’s internal system.
We teach and mentor coaches who are ready to live into their own bold
and inspiring vision and help their clients do the same in service to humanity.

Brian's methodology has a structure as well as a freedom to it that brings together all the missing pieces I have experienced with coaching in the past. My clients are benefiting enormously. His ability to provide a safe and nurturing space for learning and growth has transformed my internal and external worlds with profound and sustainable change. This training will shape and improve your game as a coach and transform your relationship with yourself and others.
