Real Coaching Sessions Unplugged with your hosts Sheri Boone, MCC and Jamee Tenzer, MCC

“Good news!  You can now earn a Core Competency CCEU by listening to the recordings of our monthly calls.  Details below”

Dear Coach,

We created the Real Coaching Sessions Unplugged series because, as coach mentors, we know the immense value that coaches gain from hearing masterful coaching live. Our goal is to showcase coaches from around the world in a live format. We not only give participants the opportunity to listen, but also to engage in a Q & A following each session.

Real Coaching Sessions Unplugged is for you if you are:

  • A new coach or working toward your coaching credential
  • A seasoned coach looking for professional development
  • Someone with an interest in coaching who wants to hear experienced coaches do what they do best

We hope that you will be inspired as you listen!

Sheri Boone, MCC and Jamee Tenzer, MCC


“You two did such a phenomenal job – professional, warm, connected, great energy moving things along and lingering without rushing. You facilitated beautifully together and both brought such great energy – confident, lovely, real. It is a real service to be able to see inside the coaching session, which is such an intimate place. We know we do this in coach training, but to do this out in the whole world – WOW.”

Jennifer Sellers, MCC

“Thank you for such an excellent session to start the Unplugged series … Peter Reding – a totally inspiring choice to launch these sessions. Much appreciation for holding the space for this to happen.” 

Halina Jaroszewska, PCC Executive Coach
