Attention Coaches, Consultants & Experts:

Take & teach a proven program to help you and your clients flourish during these uncertain times!

(And bring new clients into your practice!)

Hi – I’m Jackie Kelm…

I’ve worked with thousands of people over the past 20 years helping them thrive, but I’ve never seen anything like we are experiencing now.

I reflected on the challenges and opportunities before us as coaches and consultants and decided the most powerful offering I could make is the Appreciative Living Learning Circles.

This program has helped people overcome extreme challenges, navigate major life transitions, rebuild relationships and more. They have been run in more than 9 countries in the past 10 years by licensed facilitators, and also by organizations such as The Duke Integrative Medical Center & The National Multiple Sclerosis Society.

I’m offering this program for you to take and teach to help you and your clients  thrive!

The Learning Circles Teach You How To:

  • Reduce feelings of worry, stress or overwhelm, and feel happier and lighter.

  • Get clear on what matters most  and take appropriate action to make it happen.

  • Take the right amount of precaution and make better decisions about what to do.

  • Setup your day ahead to go more easily and successfully.

  • Be less bothered by difficult people and situations.

  • Be more emotionally available to help others.

I was blown away by the power of the Learning Circles. I wasn’t sure what the impact would be given the challenges of COVID-19, but participants were able to make huge shifts in their perspectives to see what was good and understand the things they could impact, giving them the strength to persevere. I am loving this so much!

My mother unexpectedly passed away the month before she was scheduled to move into our mother-in-law suite, so the shock of her death was a major part of my grieving process. I attended grief workshops, read books on grieving, prayed to God, and talked to our friends and family. However, nothing could relieve the pain of my suffering… The Learning Circles brought the peace I had been seeking and the understanding that you can accept the loss of a family member you loved with all of your heart. These principles are the keys to having joy in your life again.”

– Brenda Mauritz, Georgia

The Program has 4 Main Components:

#1. Weekly Home-Study Class Recording

Each week for 4 weeks you’ll get a training video of Jackie Kelm leading you through the class which you can watch at your convenience. She will provide key lessons and detailed instructions on daily practices to do that week to embed Appreciative Living into your life.

#2. Comprehensive Workbook

The program includes a detailed workbook you’ll refer to as you follow along with the class recording. It is very thorough with a summary of the main ideas along with everything you need to know and do for that week.

#3. Daily Practices

You’ll have simple 10-15 minute daily practices that will help you create the life you want. You will be given clear written instructions and templates so you know exactly what to do, how, and when each week.

#4. Companion Journal

There are several options for taking notes and doing your exercises, including an electronic journal. Some prefer to use their own written journal or write in the Participant Guide and you can choose what works best for you.

I took the Learning Circles into the schools as a past principal and school board member, and the results were incredible. Teachers shared key ideas with students and saw an improvement in academics as student-to-student conversation improved. Parents noticed a change as well and started asking, “What’s going on? My child came home and gave me a hug today…”

The impact has been far reaching, and I continue to share them in the schools and everywhere I can, from assisted living centers to coffee shops.

Here is What the Learning Circles Do

& What They Don’t.

The Learning Circles DON’T:


  • Give you rose-colored glasses. This is where you block out all the bad things going on around you and pretend things are better than they are. This can actually keep you from getting what you want, and can also be dangerous for obvious reasons.

  • Make life perfect. Having an Appreciative Mindset will help you navigate the ups and downs of life, but it will not stop them. There will always be challenges, and the Learning Circles show you how to use them as opportunities to learn and live more joyfully.

  • Provide a quick fix or magic pill. While it only takes 10-15 minutes a day to do the simple practices, it does take 10-15 minutes a day. Over time your thinking will shift more naturally, but you have to do the daily practices to make it happen.

The Learning Circles DO:


  • Allow you to see solutions and good things you are missing. They expand your world-view and allow you to see the positive side of people and situations, opening up new ideas and solutions that are currently out of your awareness.

  • Help you think clearly and make better decisions.  Research shows your thinking gets worse when you are anxious or afraid. Reducing negative emotion helps you think more clearly, take more constructive action, and make better decisions.

  • Make you happier with practice. The Learning Circles teach you how to shift your mindset to experience more happiness and joy. Like going to the gym to get stronger, an Appreciatieve Mindset is something  you build through daily practice. There are no shortcuts or magic pills.

“I am so glad I became a facilitator for the Appreciative Living Learning Circles. The materials are so easy to follow. You have a guide to follow with exactly what to say and checklists of what to prep ahead. It took just a little time to get ready for each class. The time flew and people opened up.

The Amazon site says “kindle edition” but it will work on almost any electronic device. You will also need a computer or other electronic device with an internet connection to access all your materials online. We will provide an electronic journal for you to do your practices and take notes, but some people like to purchase their own journal for writing.

Is the program live or online? The program is all online. If you become a facilitator, you can run the program live or online and we give you materials and instructions to do both.

How Did the Learning Circles Get Started? The Learning Circles began in 2008 as a collaborative effort with over 70 people from around the world who wanted to to change the world for the better through Appreciative Living. Here is the original vision we still hold as our guiding light: Learning Circle Vision

The National Multiple Sclerosis Society ran a pilot program with the Learning Circles several years back. Below are comments from participants and their caregivers:

  • “They made me more open to change & I’m now more appreciative of all that I have.”
  • “I feel this process is transformational; it can result in a whole new context for living!”
  • “It gave me a new way of thinking and reminded me not to think so negative.”
  • “I love this time and the new friends I have made. I know I am not alone anymore.”
