Coaches Preparing for Certification Exam

“[Ben had] me get really clear on what I had 100% control over, which could not be taken away from me. He devoted so much time to having me be sure of how I wanted to be, that when the time came, it was easy, effortless and truly the celebration I was longing for.” – Annie Gelfand


“My session with Ben completely shifted my perspective about the exam in a way that I did not think was possible. It’s one thing to talk like you are not coming from fear, but in reality to still be scared deep inside. It’s quite another to be able to stand in a completely new place for real — and that’s what he did for me.” – Susan Olsen


“My exam is tomorrow morning and I cannot express how dramatically more confident I am after having had my pre-exam session with you; a literal night and day change for the better.” – Kerrie Yeats

“Ben’s coaching helped bring my own coaching to a new level. He challenged and inspired me to bring my most powerful self forward where it could shine brilliantly in the light.  He showed me how to use co-active coaching skills in new, powerful ways, allowing me access my best self as a coach, and play a bigger game – all in a way that was fun, playful, and encouraging. Thank you Ben!” – Clare Connoly


“Thank you, thank you, thank you for all your support for the exam, Ben!  I truly appreciate all that you did to help me and all your encouragement, especially after the devastating news that I hadn’t passed the 1st time.  I really think that working with you to prepare for my oral exam made a huge difference not only in passing the exam but also in my coaching.”  – Patty Hagan


“I want to highly recommend Ben Dooley’s wonderful certification exam prep package. Ben has really thought of everything in putting these calls together. What he teaches goes way beyond just preparing for the exam and totally impacts both your coaching and you. I felt so prepared and confident from my work with Ben that I was actually excited about taking my exam.

He really takes the CTI experience to a new level.” – Julia Mattern
