What People are Saying

"The certification course has been tremendous. The support and materials provided are very beneficial. In fact, it made me a believer of what can be done in a virtual environment. I am taking this experience and applying it to some of the courses I am moving over to virtual training."

"The TypeCoach certification program was terrific. Shauna did a fantastic job.

Thank you!"

What People are Saying

“The course was excellent. Well-structured and the pace of delivery was just right. Shauna Skinner is an exceptional trainer. The course material, slides, video clips, etc. were also very accessible, easily understood, and helped to reinforce and cement learning. Added to that, the back-up support and customer-care from the TypeCoach Academy were also first-class.” 

- Dom Crotty
CIPD Certified Trainer
Former facilitator of the MBTI® Certification Course
Founder of New Dawn Career Coaching

"I have a 30 year career in the finance industry and over 20 years as a leader and coach. . .  I have taken, and taught, many sessions on the subjects and been exposed to many tools and materials. Type coach is my personal favorite among them all. What I find so effective and compelling about Typecoach is how it masterfully blends the critical areas of a) understanding oneself and b) understanding others and c) how to use that information - quickly and practically - to be more effective. The people I have shared Type Coach with in the past, have all shown progress in their interpersonal effectiveness which translates to improved success, efficiency and satisfaction. Not many tools and resources can do all that - with such a relatively brief investment of time." 

- Christopher Guzikowski
Senior Region Director of Operations
Ameriprise Financial Services

"I decided to get certified in TypeCoach and, even with my decades of experience, I learned an amazing amount of new information and developed or honed many skills. These gains will make taking people through the TypeCoach experience easier and more impactful for my clients. The program also came with a treasure trove of resources as a part of the certification investment. I have never felt so set up for success in any previous program I have taken. Ever. The value far exceeds the investment."

“What I particularly like is the fact that TypeCoach focuses on the practical use, application and interpretation of Type (for both coach and end-user) in one-to-one or one-to-group settings whereas other, competing Type alternatives, put more and less appropriate focus on the assessment process rather than application.”

Dom Crotty
