Erin and Mike Hutchins provided me an unforgettable, life-changing mountaintop experience! As for the coaching skills they shared with me, I thought it was to help others, but in the end, it was soup for the soul for me.

– Che Russell, Leadership Coaching certification alumni

"Over the last year, I've been learning & growing from the coaching the ACT Team offered me. Simply amazing. My personal growth towards becoming a certified leadership coach with the International Coaching Federation (ICF), and the growth of my clients already is life altering, literally. Further, their compassion for, and patience with their coaching students is beyond admirable. As a life long learner, and aspiring leader, coaching is a perfect complement to my existing quiver of skills. When I talk about changing the world, people like Mike and Erin come to mind."

I truly cannot articulate the impact this course has had not only on my professional life, but also my personal life. This course, with Erin and Mike, and their support team, provides material in such a way that it rewired my way of thinking.
