You didn’t learn how to be a leadership coach when you earned your MBA–but leadership coaching is a critical skill if you want to be the leader people choose to follow and get sustainable results!
Leaders today are working in a time of unprecedented global change and complexity.
Whether the focus is on bottom-line results, customer satisfaction, expanding market share, innovation, or globalization, the pressures are immense.
Being an agile leader means you understand how to coach the people around you to reach their highest potential for better results.
- The people who report to you need your help and expect you to help them grow professionally…
- The people you report to expect you to accomplish greater results with fewer resources…
- The people at home repeatedly ask, “Why are you always working?”
We developed the Heart of Leadership Coaching® Certification Program for modern-day leaders to get better business results without sacrificing the things that are important to them.

Training on core leadership coaching concepts and skills
A model for coaching

What our clients say:
“This Coach Certification has been the most important and rewarding endeavor I have participated in since law school.”
Steve NailDean of Business Anderson University
“Very few people in my career have made such an impact on my business, or my own professional development for that matter, as Cindy has since our implementation of the Heart of Leadership Coaching Certification Program. She combines a savvy understanding of what makes businesses succeed with a deep passion for helping people grow and excel in every facet of their lives quite easily and effectively!”
Greg ForceCEO and President
“Ms. Lamir provided Executive Coach training that was invaluable. I’ve had a long management career in both government and the private sector and I have an MBA from a top business school. Ms. Lamir’s training enabled me to integrate that experience with specific techniques and behaviors of coaching. As a result I am much more effective than I would otherwise be. As a bonus the course was enjoyable.”
Perry MilesExecutive Coach and Principal
“I attended Cindy’s Coach Certification Program to become a business development coach inside my law firm. The program was fantastic, and Cindy is an absolute delight. Her one-on-one coaching with me was stellar, and I wish she was still coaching me. I highly recommend her and am happy to provide more detail to anyone who wants it.”
Valerie NelanChief of Staff at Baker Donelson
“Cindy was the instructor who delivered my training to become a Certified Coach and provided a series of coaching sessions as part of the process. I quickly discovered that Cindy is not only an extremely personable individual, she is an expert at what she does. I benefited greatly from both the classroom instruction and the one-on-one sessions, and highly recommend not only the Coach Certification, but Cindy herself as both a talented instructor and a great coach.”
