All Certified NeuroTransformational Coaches have first completed a recognized coach training program* before completing all four modules of BEabove Leadership’s Neuroscience, Consciousness and Transformational Coaching,
a total of over 81 classroom hours (in addition to their core coach training). Upon completion of these modules, our certified coaches have then completed a rigorous Certification Program,
which includes additional reading, review, coaching supervision and feedback. At the end of this program, they must pass a comprehensive written test (essay format) covering key neuroscience topics, as well as a one-to-one interview and coaching proficiency test. We’re very proud to recommend all our CNTCs as transformational coaches and experts in the neuroscience of human development.
*in some rare cases, they may instead be trained as therapists — see individual information for more detail.
Dorota Szkodny-Ciolek (PCC, CPCC, ORSCC, CNTC) has 20 years of experience in designing and running Executive MBA courses and leadership workshops. She places special emphasis on development of adaptive leadership competencies, systems thinking and coaching skills for managers.
Dorota’s passion is to help students and clients increase their self-awareness and the ability to see themselves as parts in a web of relationships, and to understand thinking patterns that impact behavior.
When working with executive clients Dorota prefers to view leadership as the practice of leadership that focuses on the work to be done, rather than a manifestation of a pre-defined set of personal ‘leadership characteristics.’
As the practice of leadership is no longer synonymous with authority, leadership and self-leadership competencies are absolutely necessary in all echelons of the organization.
Dorota believes that everybody can become a better leader.
