Thriving Coaching, Consulting, and Training Team

The Thriving Leadership Academy provides a collaborative environment for consultants and coaches from various organizations to be trained and certified in the Thriving approach to consulting and coaching. Our curriculum follows a well-proven set of principles and methods that have been formulated and tested successfully for over 20 years.
