Personal Growth Classes

“Wow, I really can’t express to you how excited I am about this class! I think, no, I know, I am ready to make the changes necessary. No guts, no story. So good!” – Class Attendee

The best investment you can make is in your own personal growth

Are you ready for real personal growth in your daily life? You cannot think or read your way to greater confidence!  You must work at it deliberately by challenging old assumptions, making new decisions, trying new behaviors, and systematically capturing your learning. our confidence classes provide the structure, challenge and support you need to grow this most important personal asset. The course is motivational, inspiring, educational and actionable.

Designed for small groups of 8-20, our 6-week class challenges participants to engage at a deeper level and apply new learning immediately and consistently. We believe that true transformation takes time in order to:
