Let's talk about The Superpowers of Human Nature!

So Fun!!!!

The BIG idea of Transformational Coaching is to guide the player to trust and express their Superpowers of Human Nature.

This is pretty much the opposite of almost every other major belief system in civilization which are based on the premise that Human Nature is a problem that we need to get under control.

Our philosophy is based on years of coaching amazing humans!

And the fun metaphorical truth that the caterpillar does not become a butterfly by fixing their caterpillar problems. Rather they trust and express their butterfly nature!!

Unleashing the Human Nature Superpowers of Your Players

All of us are born with the Superpowers of Human Nature and a dream in our hearts to use them for good in the world.

However, as our Human Cultures have become more hierarchical and authoritarian, often our Human Nature Superpowers are driven underground because they are not embraced. Note: this has been going on for a long time!! Every Hero’s Journey story includes a plot line of the adventurer reclaiming their lost powers. And every Hero on a journey has a Guide.

The modern day Hero’s Journey Guide is… The Transformational Coach!

As a CoachVille Transformational Coach you will learn how to guide your players in pursuit of their BIG Dreams AND discover and unleash their superpowers along the way.

The Coaching Superpowers class will get you started on your remarkable life as a Hero’s Journey Guide.

AND… the time is NOW for the Human Family to rise up together and co-create a culture of Egalitarian Freedom. This is what Transformational Coaching is all about. Every person you coach creates a ripple effect of freedom into families, communities, companies and one day… countries.

Next… The Coaching Superpowers.

The Superpowers of Coaching

Super Powers are your foundation for the transformational coaching relationship

We have been honing and refining how to practice and use these superpowers for almost 20 years now. Recently we have tweaked them a bit to stay in alignment with the new ICF Core Competancy Model. (which is really quite good)

We will cover each of the 10 Coaching Superpowers (and Core Competencies) one at a time, in a way that makes them easy to use and remember; and we will demonstrate how each Super Power is needed to use the Transformational Coaching Techniques. (we will get to them next).

To become a master crafts-person you must know and practice these skills – over and over again. Using our active learning method, you will learn each skill through observation and practice.

Here is a fun little table with the 10 Coaching Superpowers and the corresponding ICF Core Competency

Core Competency #1 Demonstrate Ethical Practice : We cover this in the Mentor Coaching program.

Core Competency #2 Embodies Coaching Mindset : It is not used for certification, but we will explore it.

How to talk like a coach with the Spirit of Play

The Spirit of Play and Play Pattern language set coaching apart from every other approach to Human Achievement. When you focus your conversations on playing big for a dream and playing better you will never be confused with another type of professional. If your aim is to become a practicing Professional Coach then this is essential for you. 

A compelling 12-session sequence you can use over and over again!

You will learn a specific coaching plan of 12 sessions with detailed coaching guides that are easy to learn and fun to practice. These 12 sessions will enable you to co-create a provocative growth-oriented experience with your first players; even if you have never “officially” coached before. You won’t need to “fake it till you make it”… you will know what you are doing from the first session!!!

Coaching Mistakes and How to Avoid Them

Coaching is way more challenging than it first appears and mistakes WILL happen.  Mistakes are a part of any worthwhile growth-oriented venture.  Mistakes should not be feared! At the same time, it is beneficial to be AWARE of the common mistakes so that you can avoid them and / or recover quickly when you make them.

Let's get you registered!

You are going to love it!

your friend will love it too!)

CoachVille Coaching Superpowers Program


From the Game Card

Sharing Experiences Amplifies Community Growth

An essential part of every CV class is the Gamecard where students share about learning concepts, playing for their own dream AND they share about their coaching experiences.

The Gamecard amplifies learning and facilitates a robust experience of belonging.

I pulled out some shares of students talking about their experiences in coaching and playing.

You will recruit at least 3 players from your world to coach every week while you are in class. (just like they did)
YES, you can do it AND we will provide some guidance.

CoachVille is a “learn by doing” school! (also quite rebellious since many schools don’t require you to coach anyone while you are in class which actually makes no sense to us)

Coach Don Eash shares his experiences

Thanks Coach…

My players are all in the tech field, so I got a thank you text!  One of my players is having an issue with letting go and procrastination which we’ve been playing with.  He made a bold move and got rid of several old grills that were cluttering up his yard after our last call and his text said “Thank you for helping me see what was really going on with the grills!  They’re gone and my wife is a happy camper!”.  Can’t beat that 🙂

Playing with FEAR on the Hero’s Journey…

VICTORY!  I had a pile of resistance as I was working with my now ex-accounting firm, but I powered through it and got the outcome I desired (and deserved).  They certainly put up a LOT of roadblocks and my fears around asking for what I need or want (much less pushing back hard) were put to the test.  Playing with this fear has been extremely eye opening!

Player’s getting into action…

Got an awesome note from one of my Players this morning!  She thanked me for helping her get to a place where she could take action on a plan she had been putting off for 18 months.  She’s going BIG!

Coach Sandi Silva shares her experiences

Shared success with her dyad partner

My Partner in my Coaching  Superpowers class just had a very big win she went to a coaching seminar and her partner in the audience asked her what she did.  She told him she was a life coach and he asked her to coach him.  She had been practicing her ask in role play and this was a big win for her !!

I believe that during our role plays I helped my player find her voice to be less nervous and more prepared to ask and get the yes answer she deserves.

Learning from experience…

My exprience of purpose, presence and permission lead to profound belonging … because if you can find out what the other persons purpose is, be present for them, fully present and use permission to engage with them to ask questions and help make suggestions you should be able to connect on a profound level.

Coach Kianna Wilson shares her experiences

The power of play!

I’ve been purposefully playing my game this week and instead of simply stating my desired results, I challenged myself to take specific action and push pass resistance. I am happy to report that a potential client has surfaced as a result. What I learned fromthis experience is that I need to get out my head and play more!

Thanks Coach…

My player sent me a thank you for assisting her with identifying the aspects of her career that brought the most joy and satisfaction. I challenged the player to keep a log of her workplace experiences and the energy surrounding them. She shared that this activity was insightful and she was positive about the actions needed to move forward. She commended me on giving her the space to explore.

Becoming a co-creator

I learned that I create a sense of profound belonging for my players by being vulnerable. As a result, my player shared that she always look forward to the observations I share because she knows I truly want the best for her and she feels like we are a team. This was great feedback for me to receive.

Coach Deborah Benoliel shares her experiences

Thanks Coach!

This morning I received the first real “Thank you Coach” from my player. After the amazing session with role play was over, she took a long three minutes to explain me why she was so grateful for our sessions and collaborative work.

She gave me a big thank you which felt truly meaningful.

It was so awesome for me to hear!

Insights from class…

The distinction between meaningful actions and tasks wasn’t necessarily obvious to me at first glance and the reference of us coming out of the industrial age and entering the connected age really helped me figure it out.

It’s a powerful thing to understand that in order to really make a difference, an impact on others and open up to new opportunities, you need to attach meaning to your actions. Setting an intention, having the big picture in mind of what your big dream is, is what makes the difference.

Listening to the Player Maile Sessions…

There’s two parts I truly enjoyed: 1. When player Maile showcased great awareness on the fact that she had focused her game only on one of the Why’s and lacked a global vision of her Big Dream in its entirety.

She had mastered one portion of her Big Why: her vision for her brand and her tribe but totally overlooked the other portion of her Big Why: the finances.

Great lesson to learn: in your journey towards your Big Dream, having a global vision of the different Why’s is crutial.

2. Also loved the proposal Coach Dave made to offer support to his player: The new learning plan adapted to her “artist mind”.

Another lesson here: Understand your player and when appropriate, make suggestions to offer alternatives.

Coach Jon McCallum shares his experiences

Thanks coach…

My player JH messaged me, saying “Thanks so much for your help! You have been such a wonderful blessing to me!” 

He then went on to say that he wanted to stop the sessions for now. Hah! But I responded, reminding him of his commitment. And then we worked out how to continue by coaching via phone and scheduling shorter sessions if needed.

(Just because it appears that something must end, don’t assume that it does. Challenge it a bit and see what happens. Such a great opportunity to practice being brave and yet caring at the same time. And it worked!)

Insights from the class…

  • I am more aware of and inspired to create Profound Belonging with others.
  • I love how asking Permission honors the player and also yourself by allowing you to give voice to inklings etc without shoving them onto the player.
  • I am reminded of the power of Judgment Free Awareness, to observe the player with care and wonder without the static noise of shoulds and coulds.
  • I am reminded of the significance of Play, how it opens possibility and flips challenges from being dreadful to super fun and full of living.
