3 Hours With Coaching Industry Founding Father, Thomas Leonard
Provocative And Topical – One-Of-A-Kind Audio Recordings

One of the most provocative thinkers on the coaching landscape was Thomas Leonard, known to the world as the founder of modern professional coaching. It’s widely agreed that Thomas was responsible for bringing the concept of coaching to the attention of mainstream media. On that basis, there’s now a fantastic living to be made by tens of thousands of coaches (perhaps you?).

By now, you may also know Thomas was also the founder of CoachVille, Coach U, the International Coach

Federation and the International Association of Coaching. He epitomized independent thinking, and lived,

worked and coached for years out of his RV.

We may be biased, but we’re of the opinion that no coach, aspiring or veteran, should be without the experience of hearing Thomas’s vision and intellect at work.  So we’ve included 3 wonderful recordings of Thomas.

Those curious about coaching may wonder ‘what’s all the fuss about?’ when it comes to Thomas Leonard. Well, wonder no more. You can hear for yourself when you become a CoachVille member.
