What Others Are Saying

“ Helen is one of the most amazing people I’ve ever met! If you want to be a coach and are trying to decide which coaching training to attend, I highly recommend Academy of Coaching Leadership & NLP! This program is phenomenal and brilliantly facilitated. In the 20+ years I have been in Learning & Development, in all the classes I’ve participated in as a student and facilitator, I’ve never experienced a more masterful facilitator than Helen Attridge. She is warm and funny, clear in her direction, and an EXCEPTIONAL master coach. She creates a learning environment that allows for tons of practice and deep learning. Each activity or skill is explained, then demonstrated, and then the students have an opportunity to practice and then fully debrief their experience. This was the greatest learning experience of my life.”

“ My professional coach training experience at the Academy of Leadership Coaching & NLP was phenomenal and transformative. Helen Attridges’ presence is inspirational and her ability to challenge others from a body, mind, heart, and spirit perspective is powerful. Her program was truly one of the most life changing events in my life. 
The experiential method of learning to be a coach, by coaching, being coached, and observing, gave me the confidence to create a coaching culture in my firm. The ICF structure, core competencies, coaching process, and NLP tools, gave me a system to develop and implement a successful coaching program for key members of my team. The results have been impressive and have added value at both the individual and firm level. 
Coaching has accelerated the progression of professionals being coached through improved performance, enhanced communication techniques and drawing out innovative solutions from within the individual. The firm is reaping the rewards of investment in our people through coaching around leadership skills and driving engagement of our top talent. We are able to serve our clients at the highest level of technical competency and personal touch because we have made the commitment to invest in our people. 
The coaching process looks to the individual for solutions. It builds leadership confidence because it says, “I Trust You” and “I Believe in You”. It is a recipe for building the leaders of the future right now! ”

“When I met Helen through a Stanford Business School workshop on NLP and Coaching, I experienced a seasoned facilitator and coach that I knew was ideal for me in my quest to become a coach. Helen’s brilliant expertise in all aspects of coaching is infused with her vitality, humor, and generous heart. The building blocks of the program created a space of empowerment and transformation where I opened and grew in ways I could never have anticipated.”

Helen Attridge

Founder, International Trainer, NLP Master Practitioner, Master Certified Coach

When I completed my own coach certification program almost 2 decades ago I never imagined I would be where I am today. My goal has been to support others in living as their best self while enjoying a happy, balanced and fulfilling life. What a journey coaching has been for me both personally and professionally. Coaching and NLP changed me in ways it is hard to describe, it was transformational and life changing. Now a 20 year veteran of the coach training and leadership development field, I see my role is to guide people past inner and outer obstacles to realize dreams of any scale. The only question is, “how far do you want to go?”
