Meet Leon VanderPol, PCC
Founder & Vision Keeper
Hello and welcome to the Center!
Over the past 6 years, I’ve been blessed to have trained and mentored hundreds of coaches and leaders from around the world, many who have expressed a desire to drop below the thinking mind and connect at a much deeper level with their clients and the communities they serve. They have come to the Center because they have heard an inner call to bring greater levels of spirit, presence, and energy into their work–to become true “agents of transformation” wherever they live and work.
What I have observed through years of training coaches however is that many…
- Have not learned how to coach at the transformational end of the coaching spectrum
- Don’t feel confident stepping beyond the limits of transactional coaching approaches
- Are not sure how to recognize or respond to the signals that someone is undergoing a transformational period
- Are not confident to ‘go deep’ and coach at the essential level of being
Most coach training programs teach primarily “transactional coaching” skills (issue-based, solution-focused) and do not teach you how to support profound inner transformation at the essential level of Being. The Deep Coaching program grew out of my own desire to facilitate personal transformation at a far deeper level than I was trained to do.
The Deep Coaching approach is unique in the coaching world because it demonstrates a new paradigm of coaching for a new era of living: one where people are awakening to a greater truth of who they are, their purpose for being, and a desire to express that purpose into their communities, businesses, and organizations.
Many people are ready for this form of coaching and leading.
My work is to support those who are ready to move beyond the transactional level of engagement and become a transformational presence and coach in the world. If this is you, I invite you to join us. Click here for upcoming events.
