“I grew up in Siberia and have traveled, studied and worked in many different countries around the world and have degrees in Psychology and Linguistics. I was drawn to ALCN because of its global perspective, as well as being intrigued by the combination of NLP and coaching. My Intensive Coaching Certification Class had students from around the world, many who have now become close friends and colleagues. The support from my classmates and from ALCN’s global coaching & mentoring program has been incredible. Last week I had a corporate coaching client in Australia, clients throughout Russia, a coaching call with a German coach who lives in Barcelona and spoke with my mentor coach in California. My dream of being an international coach is moving into reality.”
