Foundations of Coaching Success Intake Weekend - Melb 14 January 2011


The highly professional yet effectively light hearted performance, coupled by a heart warming, keen and friendly service offered by the crew.  I will definitely not forget this time as it has without a doubt influenced my life for good and I shifted from thing that I had jumped in out of my depth to “I REALLY CAN DO THIS’.

Thank you (with deep sincerity)



Gee it was on from the word GO!  There was so much valuable content not only about coaching but things I can take back & use in my everyday life.

I am a changed person just from this weekend & I look forward to what the future hold for me.  I can see myself back here at TCI facilitating also – Dreams I couldn’t possibly have imagine before this weekend.

TCI – Thank you for changing my life for the better! J

I have walked away with solid foundations and a much better grasp of what Life Coaching is about.  I am truly excited at the future, and at acting at cause.

Adele Spurgin, BOYLAND, QLD


What an adventure ahead!  Joe was inspirational, practical, enlightening and honest during the sessions which were insightful and will become my roadmap until it all makes sense.  Looking forward to it!



This has significantly enhanced the possibilities of where coaching will take me both professionally and personally with awesome support.  Mechanisms to assist in achieving my goals!



The Coaching Institute structures the intake weekend intricately, positioning the right materials & information strategically, inducing an educationally inspiring journey that flows fluently – opening the mind as it delights.

I enjoyed all sections of training, didn’t fall asleep at all – Love it!

Thank you Joe, for your professionalism and encouragement in taking me on my new journey.  Thank you so much.

The friends I have made, the change in my attitude to life – Love and fellow man has been changed.  I have found my purpose in life.  Coaching here I come.

Alison Briody, ERCILDOUNE, VIC


The time flew and I felt well educated.  The trainer took time to understand my map in relation to the class and I was able to educate me on my level whilst educating all.

Dean Lynch, BERWICK, VIC


I realised that I have infinite potential!  What a gift!  Thank you TCI.
