ConnectedCoaches has changed me as a coach. When people take the time to reply it makes you take a step back and think 'well maybe I could do that differently'.

I started using ConnectedCoaches as a way of broadening my knowledge as a coach. By using it, not only have I broadened my knowledge, I am now also part of a vast community that supports, helps and encourages one another.  I cannot recommend ConnectedCoaches enough to my fellow coaches!
