Your Journey Will Be Led by Jackie Kelm, a 20-year Expert on Appreciative Inquiry.

Jackie Kelm has been an Appreciative Inquiry coach and consultant for over 20 years and is a Board Certified Coach and Heartmath Certified Coach.  She developed the Appreciative Living (AL) Coaching model several years ago, which allows her to create more powerful results for clients in less time than traditional coaching models. She is excited to finally be sharing this model with you!

Contribute to Jackie’s Next Book

Jackie is writing her third book on Appreciative Living Coaching and is looking for additional examples to include. Each week you’ll have an opportunity to write-up and submit something for consideration, and if it’s chosen, you will be listed as a contributor in the book.

Each Week You Will:

  • Listen to a pre-recorded audio that takes about 20 minutes, which will explain the key ideas for that week. You can listen anytime during the week or right before the class if you wish.
  • Participate in a 90-minute live teleseminar, online, with Jackie and the other participants. It will be highly participative, and you will be able to get all your questions answered by Jackie.
  • Do daily exercises that take 15 minutes or less to help you practice and integrate the coaching techniques for that week.
  • Practice with a buddy (Optional) for a one hour call between classes to practice coaching each other. These begin the second week.
  • Videos, articles and additional resources (Optional) you may review as you wish.

Personal Coaching Session with Jackie

In addition to all of the above, you will have an opportunity to get a free coaching session with Jackie to work on anything you wish and experience the AE coaching process first-hand. You simply need to agree to allow her to record it for possible use elsewhere anonymously, after removing any and all parts of the conversation you wish.

This Stuff Really Works!

"The exercises soon became a wonderful part of my day, setting it up in a positive and grateful way that carried throughout the day.

When I am running late and do not do them, my day seems to be off track and full of challenges."
