Honoring the Source Guidelines

“Honoring the Source” Guidelines

This page serves as a guide for “Honoring The Source” when using content, programs, and intellectual property that has been created by Alan Seale and/or the Center for Transformational Presence, as well as for the independent creation and delivery by others of programs that rely heavily on Transformational Presence tools, programs, or intellectual property.

These guidelines apply specifically to workshops, lectures, trainings, and presentations in which the primary or majority source of the content, tools, and exercises is Transformational Presence.

Alan Seale and the Center for Transformational Presence have chosen to make their intellectual property available to the public as “open source” for general use. We offer this in the spirit of our mission: to help create a world that works.

Our request is that when you use our materials, you acknowledge the source of the work—that you state clearly that this is work created by Alan Seale of the Center for Transformational Presence. Please do not use our tools, exercises, concepts, or materials in workshops, lectures, presentations, or training programs without acknowledging where they came from.

In lieu of a cumbersome licensing or intellectual property agreement, we invite a contribution or honorarium to the Center for Transformational Presence in recognition and respect of the time, energy, and creativity, as well as the lifetime experience and expertise, that has gone into creating the original source material. We suggest that an appropriate contribution or honorarium could be 5 – 15% of the income before expenses for your program. Your honorarium goes to support the ongoing evolution and development of Transformational Presence work in the world.

Please note that the suggestion of an honorarium or contribution is only for workshops and training programs. This does not apply to your use of Transformational Presence tools, frameworks, concepts, or materials in your ongoing leadership, coaching, or consulting work with individual clients or teams.

This document has evolved out of the invitation that we extend at the end of all of our programs to use the work freely and give reference to the source of the work. At the same time, when we offer that invitation, we do ask that you honor and respect the creative source when you are building a program or content that relies significantly on material and content created by others. We are committed to finding a balance between generosity and sustainability in all of our work and encourage you to do the same. When there is any doubt about whether a particular program or materials should be respected through an honorarium, we invite you to talk with us so that we can discover together what feels fair and appropriate for all.

Use of Our Name, Logo, and Banners
While we encourage your use of Transformational Presence concepts, tools, and frameworks in your workshops and programs, the name “Transformational Presence” may not be used in your workshop, training, or program title. The name “Transformational Presence” may only be used in workshop, training, or program titles for programs that are created, sponsored, or authorized by the Center for Transformational Presence, or with specific permission from Alan Seale.

The Center for Transformational Presence burst logo is to be used only by the Center. Specific banners have been created for Certified Transformational Presence Coaches and for Strategic Alliance Partners. Those banners may only be used by our certified coaches and by graduates with whom the Center for Transformational Presence has entered into a strategic alliance for a particular program.

Future Programming Created in Collaboration
We encourage all jointly created content to be “open source” and to be offered as such with the request for acknowledgment of the source or sources to event participants. We also request adherence to the guidance of the Center for Transformational Presence Manifesto (found in the About Us section of the Center website), specifically as related to respecting co-creators and the use of content outside of the collaboration.

Thank you
Thank you for “honoring the source” in all of your work, no matter whom or what the source may be. This helps all of us maintain a high level of integrity in our work.

Alan Seale, Director, Center for Transformational Presence

Transformational Presence Quotes

Your way begins at the other side. Become the sky. Take an axe to the prison wall. Escape. Walk out like someone suddenly born into color. Do it now.

What People Are Saying

Jo Boniszewski

Jo Boniszewski (Netherlands)

I have yet to follow a coaching programme that has had more impact on me personally and professionally than the TPLC. I have learned and embodied a way of being and doing that enable me to cut straight to the core of an issue with my coaching clients, work with whatever appears, and move forward together with speed and ease. What once took an hour of coaching unfolds now in 20 minutes.

With Transformational Presence, I find myself in a completely non-judgmental and open place of discovery with my clients. The (self) coaching tools offered in the TPLC are hugely powerful in their simplicity, inviting deep insights, new opportunities, and answers to quickly arise, regardless of how complex or emotionally charged my client’s issue is. Utilising the intelligence of both the intellect and our intuition and combining exploration and reflection with action, Transformational Presence has resulted in significant and sustainable growth for me and for my clients.

Magnus Green

Magnus Green, Executive Coach (Sweden)

The Transformational Presence Leadership and Coach Training (TPLC) has been a door opener for me, not just in my coaching, but also as a manager, as a leader, and as a human!

My coaching has a completely different dimension now by working with energy. Imagine that you are working with the positive energies instead of the traditionally used "resources vs. obstacles" in your coaching. With this way of coaching, I am now able to help my clients move forward in a much faster and more professional way. Alan not only gave me new powerful yet simple coaching tools; he also gave me new approaches to discover what is really happening underneath the surface and the greater potential waiting to unfold in the coaching sessions.

As a manager and leader, I now have a new way of looking at organizations and change processes. We start from the essence—from the core of what is really going on and the potential that wants to emerge. And then we work from the inside out. The TPLC gave me new tools for this.

As a human, I now see my surroundings in a completely different way. I have found a deeper perspective, both for myself and for others. I have a much greater understanding of self-awareness, as well as more compassion for others and their actions.

Finally, I have attended many training courses over the years, including my MBA education, as well as trainings in management, sales, and marketing. However, if I were asked to recommend just one of them, without hesitation, I would choose the TPLC. This program has given me so much, both personally and professionally. And the access now to the Transformational Presence global community also provides me with resources and materials.

My advice to you—do not hesitate. Follow your intuition, and if your intuition says "yes" to the TPLC, go for it!

Joanna Zawada-Kubik, PCC (Poland)

The TPLC impressed with its depth, simplicity, and powerful combination of presence and choice. To be able to create space like that requires nothing less than mastery. This is how Alan’s work is different from any other. Until I participated in the TPLC, I only knew how to make big changes through sweat, drama, and tears. Alan has shown me that transformation is possible through the stillness of the quiet heart. The greatest takeaway for me was becoming aware that struggle and difficulty was my choice.

TPLC is for me much more than a training—it is an invitation, once and for all, to declare who I choose to be in my life and what I want to support with my energy and actions.

Marja Sas

Marja Sas, CTPC (Netherlands)

Once I stepped in, I knew I wanted more. TPLC is encouraging, empowering, and inspiring. It is about looking from another place, about the stories you tell yourself, about the choices you have. When you live TPLC and work with it, the clarity it brings is phenomenal. To know, all levels, that everything you need is present.

Alan respects who you are and where you are in your process. He does not push you, yet he challenges, invites, and encourages you, creating a space where you can explore, discover, and learn—a place where transformation can happen.

TPLC and working with Alan has impacted my life and work magically. I now live my essence and work from there. TPLC has become a way of living and working. Do you live what you know? Do you live your essence?

Gijs Dullaert (Netherlands)

So much has happened for me since I was first introduced to the Transformational Presence work. No matter what is going on, my grounding in Transformational Presence is never far away. Decision-making, both day-to-day and long-term, are so much easier and clearer now. I can still get caught on a personal rollercoaster from time to time, yet now I realize that it happens when I need to let go of something and take a big step forward. And now when the rollercoaster appears, I have tools and frameworks that help me quickly get grounded again, find clarity, and take action. I’m also getting better and faster at recognizing the rollercoaster before it sweeps me away.

More and more, I’m able to be a “vessel” for the things that need to happen. Most important to me is that I’m feeling much more at home in myself. My internal fire is so much stronger than ever before. I feel so privileged to have been introduced to Transformational Presence and to continue receiving its incredible gifts.

Alan Seale’s Transformational Presence Leadership and Coach Training program has allowed me to transform my coaching, my life, and my relationships! The program delivered more than I expected. It was simple yet profound and the coaching sessions were eye opening. It was so much more than just adding tools to your toolbox. And it provided me with CCEUs to renew my coaching credentials. I highly recommend this course to new coaches as well as seasoned coaches.

Working with Alan is a powerful experience: following the energy, inviting potential, and being aware of choice. Alan is the living example. Through his trainings and workshops, you see, feel, sense, and live in yourself.

The Transformational Presence tools are hands-on. I use them in the groups of frontline workers (midwifes, general practitioners, community health workers, youth workers) I work with. Together, we create and hold space for transformation in systems that no longer serve. Shifting from chaos, drama, and exhaustion to a grounded path connected through collective wisdom.

My personal path with Alan and the Transformational Presence community is a great inspiration for which I have an incredible flame of gratitude. It’s all about creating a world that works.

Mary Riley, CTPC (USA)

I recommend Transformational Presence Leadership and Coach Training (TPLC) because of my personal and professional experience with Alan Seale’s work. The value of TPLC manifests on many levels that include personal growth, continuing coach education, organizational development, and most of all, its focus on care, community, and serious change in the world. Alan eschews formulas and coaching methodologies in favor of potential-based work that builds on the power of universal connection and co-creation. Our Center for Non-Profit Coaching (CNPC) emerged as a result of TPLC. Unlike training programs that wane over time, TPLC gets stronger as a navigation tool to keep our community and our clients in touch with what matters most: Leadership and service to the world.

Alan is a great teacher. The TPLC is a perfect balance of experience and theory. The tools are practical and Alan really teaches you how to use the tools in such a clear and practical way. Alan's authenticity and warm personality puts you at ease in a second. He is fully present and connected.

Transformational Presence has deepened my relationship with myself and I feel more grounded. The TPLC brought me so much more than just the training itself—I learned so much from Alan and so much about myself. The new friendships that I developed and the connections with colleagues there continue to support your journey. You feel the understanding from them. And they also give you a kick in the butt if you need it! This is all thanks to Alan. He creates a circle of trust from the moment you step into his presence.

Since 2012, I have had the privilege to be enormously inspired and empowered by Alan and his work. I had already taken many steps in my journey from being a “thinker” to being a high-sensitive “feeler,” yet working with Alan took me to a much higher level.

What has helped me in particular is, simply put, Alan’s presence. In an open, totally non-judgmental way, he invites you to explore whatever is arising for you so that you can understand or receive the insights that are waiting for you. He effortlessly creates an environment in which you can easily tap into more intuitive sources of knowing. His unique approach to coaching and leadership creates a strong interconnection between “being” and “doing” that has enabled me to fully enjoy life with a quiet mind, a relaxed body, and an inspired heart! Integrating Transformational Presence into my work has brought an ease and acceptance to my coaching that allows me to be present with my clients on a very deep level.

Jayne L. Garrett, PCC (USA)

As a seasoned professional, I have taken many coach training courses over the years. Not one compares to the caliber of the five-day Transformational Presence Leadership Coaching program offered by Alan Seale. 

The uniqueness of this program is the offering of experiential learning with inter-developmental conversations, which result in building a powerful connection with colleagues and peers. These connections of diverse styles and expertise attract and feed the strength of the Transformational Presence community by offering opportunities of development and collaboration. The methodologies offered in this program are relevant to both clients and your life.

Different from other trainers who solely feed your mind with knowledge and skills, Alan's energy and style are inviting, experiential and uplifting. You leave the gatherings he leads and facilitates with a renewed sense of purpose as well as tangible new tools and techniques. These takeaways are immediately applicable to your work and your life. Passion for this work beams through Alan with laser focus and pure intention, which maximizes the learning experience.

TPLC has allowed me to go deep on many levels—both with myself and with clients—in order to gain clarity, insights, and action items. Additionally, TPLC techniques provide the ability to go wide—to tap into the greater field of potential to create. 

Making changes and creating a new professional/personal life can feel like a mental exercise or hard work. However, through TPLC and Alan’s approaches, realizations naturally arise. Space is given; outcomes are not forced. From that space, shifts in perspective and strategies simply flow. Clients go deep in their process, but it somehow feels effortless. Subtle, powerful, and practical.

Personally, since participating in the TPLC three years ago, I’ve been able to better align how I live, work, and play: creating energetically as well as physically, plugging into something bigger than me to seed possibilities and make them a reality. Transformational Presence has enabled me to live the way I coach, and to coach the way I live.

If this resonates with you, then you’ve found your coaching tribe!

In March 2011, I followed the TPLC program with Alan. After the first day, I knew, “This is what it is all about: Presence is the essence.” The uniqueness about this program is the combination of transformational coaching and leadership with working on your own presence. It is about connecting with the greatest potential and with the universal energy. Before I came in contact with Alan’s work, I always was looking for more. Now I don’t need to anymore. I look deeper instead. I now have created my own training together with Claartje Driessen—Transformational Presence Coaching with children and young people. If we approach children from this Transformational Presence, it would help us come closer to creating a world that works.

At the end of 2009, I was just about to leave the comforts of a corporate job to follow the deeper calling of my heart. I knew this was the beginning of a new adventure that would require profound shifts in my way of life, but I wasn’t sure where to start.

After my first workshop with Alan, I could sense that Transformational Presence would play an important role in enabling this major transition. In the following years, I joined the Transformational Presence Leadership and Coaching Program (TPLC) and became an active participant in the Transformational Presence community. I developed the skills and confidence to anchor the next phase of my work around my deeper calling, while creating an effective connection with the realities of today’s world.

Working in this space between “what is” and “what could be” comes with many creative tensions for which traditional problem solving skills no longer work. With Alan, I have learnt to tap into the “energy of potential” that is contained in these tensions and become a steward for the new opportunities to break through. What started off as a coaching tool or mechanism to change my work has now become a natural and very fulfilling way of life.

I highly recommend TPLC and Supervised Mentor Coaching for those professionals and people who want to make a significant step in their evolution. Not only does it open the door of ancient wisdom; it provides a practical, easy-to-live-and-use approach in all areas of life—personal and professional. TPLC provides a structure and approach for being and doing. If you want to develop your own higher knowledge and wisdom, to equally understand and feel where you are, who you are, and the impact of your presence in the world, and help others to do the same, enroll in TPLC. Transformational Presence is a breakthrough program.

One and a half years ago, as an experienced business coach, I jumped into the Transformational Presence world with Alan and the TPLC training. What an experience-based learning of who we really are and what our bigger potential is, without all of our stories that get in the way! Alan makes it so practical, so friendly, so natural, so aligned, so all-inclusive.

In addition to my personal growth of feeling more confident and grounded, I am able to support teams and organizations much more easily now—to help them get out of being stuck in their challenges and situations and moving them towards their greater potential.

The additional Mentor Coaching Class with Alan was spot on my potential in being and coaching, and it deepened my focus on transforming the client’s relationship towards the issue or topic that we are working with rather than just trying to “fix” the issue. This makes a huge difference in our work. What a great and inspiring coach you are, Alan. A big thank you!

I attended Alan’s Transformational Presence Leadership and Coaching (TPLC) program in the autumn of 2013 in Bucharest, Romania. At the time, I was the Regional HR Director of a large pharmaceutical multi-national corporation. I wanted to augment my coaching skills and learn beyond my formal coaching qualifications.

TPLC has a strong theoretical core, which finds its validation in ancient wisdom as well as modern-day quantum physics. Even more useful, though, was the application part of the theory, which came through simple yet profoundly practical techniques. The best part of the techniques is their instant demonstration and to see them delivering results! I now use the TPLC concepts and techniques in my coaching sessions. They work very well and help my clients.

Alan is a warm and authentic person. He has a personal understanding and special connection with every participant in his programs. His work is incredibly important in today’s world. It offers fresh perspective, energy, wisdom, and hope. I am extremely happy that we met!

I knew the program would be a safe space to learn and explore and I fully expected to take my coaching to a new level. However, the program blew me away. I was personally transformed—getting answers to who I am called to be as a coach. And I left with deeply essential yet truly practical tools to facilitate the transformation of my own clients. This program is for everyone—coach, leader, facilitator, human beings called to co-create with what wants to happen from the largest perspective and potential and make a real difference in the world.

After having been working on personal leadership for many years in different ways, Alan Seale has added something new and important to me. What first struck me about Alan Seale was his presence. By being in his presence, he showed me how to really welcome everything that happens, even the things that may not feel welcome. He showed me how to work in a completely different way, focusing on growth and potential, our true nature.

Thanks to these experiences, my way of perceiving has changed and, as a consequence, my working in coaching and organizational training have fundamentally changed. Moreover, in the TPLC program (Foundation program and the Supervised Mentor Coaching teleclass series), I have learned many new coaching tools. Alan offers them in abundance! However, TPLC is much more than a set of tools. It is a way of perceiving—an approach that opens up the potential in myself and in my clients. I feel great gratitude for the gift that Alan shares.

What an amazing coaching program that emphasizes universal laws and energy as well as one’s intuition to guide us in this world. The tools experienced and learned in this program let life and all possibilities unfold with ease.

Alan is Transformational Presence (and a transformational present). I’ve studied both Transformational Presence and Theory U (Otto Scharmer’s work). Alan brings Theory U alive. Alan uses not so many words, but rather helps you experience (your) potential through his powerful tools. To me, being aligned is most important. Then I’m the instrument. It’s hard to explain in words how TPLC enriched my life and work. To put it simply, TPLC reduces drama and brings a lot more choice, commitment, and vitality. So necessary in these times.

The TPLC was for me both tumultuous and very valuable. I came home feeling changed in my connection to my heart. My heart had opened. I started working with my life instead of pushing against it. As I dared to listen and follow my intuition, things started happening.

During the months after the TPLC, people started coming to me for coaching. It was the first time I could be myself and speak about who I really am. At work, I finally had he courage to start experimenting with the new exercises and tools that Alan taught us. People didn’t always understand how they worked, but they were very happy with the results! My courage grew and so did theirs. All of this has helped me to trust following the energy and using my intuition in my work.

Alan helped me to connect to my heart and to follow the energy of what wanted to happen. As a result, I have a new worldview about how I can influence my life path towards happiness and freedom and now am helping others to do the same.
