72 Coach Specific Training Hours approved by the International Coach Federation (ICF)
With graduates from 32 countries, Transformational Presence Leadership and Coach Training (TPLC) offers a fresh, leading-edge coaching approach to life, leadership, business, government, and education throughout the world. Effective, impactful, and transformative leadership and coaching in today’s rapidly changing world requires new kinds of skills and tools as well as broader capacities for awareness and perception.
TPLC cuts to the essence of circumstances and situations, identifies emerging potential, and then partners with that potential to discover a clear pathway forward—a pathway that can lead us toward a world that works. TPLC is a transformational leadership and coaching approach whose time has come—an essential skill set for navigating the complexities of today’s rapidly changing and uncertain world.
Grounded in ancient wisdom traditions, quantum science, and consciousness studies, TPLC offers practical yet powerful tools, skills, language, and approaches that expand your capacities for Whole-Mind Thinking and Whole-Being Awareness. Transformational Presence is an essential skill set for effective and impactful transformational coaching and leadership in today’s rapidly changing and unpredictable world.
In this program, you will learn how to:
- Navigate complex situations and circumstances and find effective next steps
- Be more receptive, responsive, creative, and innovative
- Work with instead of struggle against
- Sense and perceive beyond the obvious
- Understand what is happening on multiple levels in situations and circumstances
- Meet both opportunities and challenges with clarity and confidence
- “Connect the dots” and work with the interconnection of everything
- Improve communication and collaboration with those you serve
- Sense the right moment for action and how to move forward, as well as when it is time to step back and let things unfold
- Reduce stress and foster resilience in the face of uncertainty, hardship, and challenge
TPLC offers a transformational coaching approach for leaders, coaches, entrepreneurs, visionaries, educators, therapists, healthcare practitioners, spiritual leaders, and anyone committed to making a difference in their world.
More About the Program
Effective, impactful, and transformative leadership and coaching in today’s rapidly changing world requires new kinds of skills and tools as well as broader capacities for awareness and perception. These new skills and tools stretch far beyond the core competencies and analytical, knowledge-based approaches of traditional leadership and coaching into more creative, discovery-based, transformational approaches.
Today, we need leaders and coaches who are:
- able to sense, feel, and listen to the energy underneath what is happening in order to discover what is next
- comfortable in not knowing the answers—and maybe not even yet knowing which questions to ask
- curious and imaginative
- willing to explore without knowing what they will find, yet trust that clues for their next step will appear
- not afraid to take action once they sense what the next step is
- comfortable with who they are and fully embrace their own talents, skills, and gifts, while, at the same time, are committed to continued learning and growth
We need leaders and coaches who recognize that everything is connected to everything else—who embody the understanding that the world is built on a matrix of relationships, and that everything that happens is a part of a larger flow.
This is the kind of leadership and coaching that can transform our world. This is what you will learn in this program.
Transformational Presence provides a strong foundation for conscious living, leading, and coaching through a powerful yet practical set of skills. When those skills are developed together in the step-by-step approach that Alan teaches, you quickly expand your capacities for awareness, understanding, perception, and effective action.
At the core of our work is Whole-Mind Thinking and Whole-Being Awareness. Whole-Mind Thinking is a result of a full partnership between the intuitive and intellectual minds. This partnership actually exists within us already. However, through our socialization and traditional education experiences, most of us have been conditioned that these are two separate minds. And that the intellect is the one that counts.
The first step in developing Whole-Mind Thinking is the understanding that the intuitive mind is actually the larger and more powerful mind. The intellectual mind is just one small part of the much larger intuitive mind. Both are essential today for impactful leadership and coaching. They each play critical roles. Understanding their roles is an important first step in developing these new leadership and coaching skills and capacities.
Whole-Being Awareness stretches Whole-Mind Thinking to include the incredible innate awareness, understanding, and wisdom available to us through our human energy system. Perhaps you’ve heard the saying, “The body knows,” or “The body doesn’t lie.” The human energy system is an extraordinary technology that we’re just beginning to scratch the surface of. It is capable of guiding and supporting us far more than most people have imagined.
As Whole-Mind Thinking and Whole-Being Awareness become your default approach to life, leadership, and coaching, you discover a greater ability to “see the big picture” of what is happening. You begin to understand events and circumstances within a much larger context. You learn to recognize patterns and flows of energy and discover how to navigate complex situations.
When faced with challenges, difficulties, or confusion, Whole-Mind Thinking and Whole-Being Awareness reduce stress and foster resilience by transforming your relationship to what is happening. There are no magic pills, yet as your perception and understanding of what is happening expands, clarity emerges. And you know what to do next.
Transformational Presence is the embodiment of Whole-Mind Thinking and Whole-Being Awareness. It’s the foundational skill set needed for the emerging conscious leadership movement. As individuals, organizations, and societies develop and refine this skill set, they begin to shape a transformational culture around them. As the culture transforms, people are more supported and encouraged to introduce transformational initiatives.
Today, we are faced with unprecedented challenges and rapid change as well as enormous opportunities and potential. Transformational Presence prepares you for meeting any opportunity or challenge from a place of clarity, grounding, and trust. It gives you the skills, tools, and capacities to “think on your feet,” as we might say in business, or to “dance in the moment,” as we often say in coaching.
Transformational Presence is the foundation for conscious leadership, coaching, and service. It helps you to be flexible, adaptable, responsive, and creative, so that you can work with whatever lands in front of you instead of struggle against it.
Transformational Presence is a way of life—a way of being, thinking, and taking action for accelerated and sustainable results. In whatever arena you serve—personal, small business, social entrepreneurship, corporate or government leadership, education, health care, or non-profits—Transformational Presence Leadership and Coaching lays the groundwork for creating a world that works. Join us.
There are nine core curriculum topics or areas of exploration and study in the Transformational Presence Leadership and Coach Training program, all of which go together to expand your capacities for awareness, perception, understanding, clarity, intuitive thinking, and effective and impactful action. Four Levels of Engagement At the foundation of Transformational Presence work are four basic levels through which we engage life. Through the Four Levels of Engagement model, we can quickly identify the habitual approaches of those we serve and immediately give them tools and understanding for choosing with intention and awareness how they will engage with life and leadership in the most productive and constructive ways. Vertical and Horizontal Orientations to Life In Transformational Presence work, we consider two fundamental orientations to life: Vertical and Horizontal. These two orientations relate to being and doing, soul and ego, the intuitive and intellectual minds, and many other aspects of life and work. Having an awareness of both the Vertical and Horizontal Orientations—how each serves us, as well as how each can become a trap—can help those we serve find a balance between being and action that supports their greatest impact and accomplishment. Reflective Practice The TPLC program provides many tools for establishing a personal centering and mindfulness practice that supports and enhances your life and work. Engaging the Intuitive Mind The intuitive mind is the larger mind, of which the intellect is just a small part. The more we operate from the larger intuitive mind, the greater access we have to wisdom, understanding, creativity, and innovation. From the perspective of the intuitive mind, we are able to understand and apply these principles of energy and work from the “big picture” in any situation, circumstance, challenge, or opportunity. We call this “whole-mind” thinking and “whole-being” awareness. The Soul-Ego Partnership In Transformational Presence work, we understand the critical importance of a dynamic partnership between soul and ego. When soul and ego are in full partnership, we have a much better chance of reaching our full potential in all aspects of life and work. Hermetic Philosophy A basic understanding of the ancient wisdom teachings of Hermetic Philosophy and its principles provides a solid foundation for understanding how life and leadership work as energy in motion. Form follows energy. Therefore, if we want to change the form of anything, we begin working with it as energy. The seven Hermetic Principles are:
- The Principle of Mentalism—Everything exists within Consciousness, and Consciousness exists within everything; everything begins as a thought.
- The Principle of Correspondence—As above, so below; as below, so above.
- The Principle of Vibration—Everything is made up of energy in motion.
- The Principle of Polarity—Nothing can exist without its opposite; therefore, the answer is in the question.
- The Principle of Rhythm—everything has its own inherent rhythm and flow.
- The Principle of Cause and Effect—Everything is an “effect” of a “cause;” every “effect” becomes a “cause” of something else.
- The Principle of Gender—Every act of creation has both a masculine (assertive and active) and feminine (reflective and introspective) component.
Basic Principles of Quantum Physics Building upon the foundation of Hermetic Philosophy, we then explore the basic principles of quantum physics to understand the science behind the Hermetic Principles and ancient wisdom teachings. The Human Energy System A fundamental understanding of the spiritual and emotional attributes of the Human Energy System (also known as the Chakra System) provides another strong foundation for understanding the challenges and strengths of those you serve. While you may never talk directly about these energy centers with those you serve, your knowledge of them can inform your questions and understanding for how to support them in the most effective and transformational ways. The Potential Based Approach An important step in creating a world that works is facilitating a shift from a “problem-solving approach” to a “potential-based approach” in leadership, coaching, and life. This means engaging life as energy in motion and being aware of the emerging potential within any situation or circumstance—discovering “what wants to happen” for a greater good and partnering with that potential to bring it to fruition. The Potential-Based Approach utilizes tools and concepts learned through the first eight core curriculum topics to provide a powerful and breakthrough approach to transformational leadership and coaching.
The Transformational Presence Leadership and Coach Training program is structured in two levels: the TPLC Foundation Course and the Transformational Presence Supervised Mentor Coaching Course.
TPLC Foundation Course The TPLC Foundation Course is a 5-day in-person program. The Foundation Course provides 52 Coach Specific Training Hours from the International Coach Federation (ICF). The 5-day format is organized around these themes:
- Day 1—Laying a Foundation
- Day 2—”Whole-Mind” Thinking, “Whole-Being” Awareness
- Day 3—Dialogue and Deep Listening
- Day 4—Creating New Realities
- Day 5—Integration
Because this program is offered in several different countries and in different kinds of venues, the registration fee varies for each workshop. Please check the Calendar page for specific workshop information and details.
Transformational Presence Supervised Mentor Coaching Course Those who want to further refine their Transformational Presence coaching skills may choose to continue with the TPLC Supervised Mentor Coaching Tele-Course via the Zoom videoconferencing platform. The tele-course includes ten 2-hour teleclasses led by Alan Seale and partner coaching in between class sessions. Group size is limited to six participants. Each participant coaches in class at least three times. In each two-hour class, there are two practice mentor coaching sessions followed by specific feedforward for the coach about what worked really well, other directions the session might have taken, other questions that might have been asked, and other approaches that might have been used. The Supervised Mentor Coaching provides 20 Coach Specific Training Hours as recognized by the ICF.
The fee for the Supervised Mentor Coaching Tele-Course via Zoom is $895 USD.
The full TPLC program (both the Foundation Course and the Supervised Mentor Coaching Tele-Course) provides a total of 72 Coach Specific Training Hours or CCEUs.
Participants must have completed the TPLC Foundation Course in order to register for the Supervised Mentor Coaching program. The Supervised Mentor Coaching Course is offered several times a year. To register for the next course, please contact us.
ICF Coach Specific Training Hours

These training hours may also be used as Continuing Coach Education Units (CCEU) for the ICF.
If this is your first coach training, the full TPLC program (Foundation Course plus the Supervised Mentor Coaching program) provides more than the required number of coach training hours to apply for the ICF’s Associate Certified Coach (ACC) credential, their first level of certification. The coach education requirement for the ACC credential is 60 hours; our program provides 72 hours.
If you have already completed your initial 60 hours of training, the TPLC program will provide the additional Coach Specific Training Hours required for the Professional Certified Coach (PCC) credential.

Transformational Presence Global Leadership Gathering
(Pre-requisite: participation in the Transformational Presence Leadership and Coaching Foundation Course or the Transformational Presence Leadership in Action program)
The 2017 Transformational Presence Global Leadership Gathering has come and gone. It was an extraordinary three and a half days. We now look forward to our next Gathering. Our intention is to meet in January 2019 in Costa Rica! We will be at Kantara Retreat Center, a beautiful private property on the side of a canyon near San José, Costa Rica. Kantara is the home of Karen Montealegre, one of our graduates. We are working out some final logistics now.
For full information on the Global Leadership Gathering, visit the Transformational Presence Global Leadership Gathering webpage.
In 2013, Alan created the first Transformational Presence Global Summit, a four-day event where graduates of the TPLC program from around the world could come together, continue to learn from Alan and from each other, and continue evolving Transformational Presence work in the world.
In 2017, the name was changed to the Transformational Presence Global Leadership Gathering. The 2017 Global Gathering was held in June at The Guest House Retreat and Conference Center in Chester, Connecticut (USA). The theme was “Fierce Gentleness and Ferocious Love.” The program was led by Alan and members of the Transformational Presence Community.
The Gathering is a time and a place to:
- reconnect to the energy of Transformational Presence
- deepen the your own personal presence
- rejuvenate your spirit
- learn new tools and approaches
- deepen your leadership and coaching awareness and skills
- clarify your next steps as a Transformational Presence leader and coach
- connect to and co-create for collaborative projects with Transformational Presence colleagues from around the world.

Transformational Presence Company Development Program with Trace Hobson
The Transformational Presence Company Development Program is a highly specialized walking-beside-you coaching and mentoring program with two particular intentions:
1) To help you build or expand your company using Transformational Presence principles, concepts, and approaches
2) To help you become much more comfortable, confident, and successful in taking Transformational Presence principles, concepts, tools, and approaches out into the world. We will help you design programs, tools, frameworks, and approaches specifically tailored to your audience or clientele.
After a very successful pilot in the 2016-17 season, we are now making revisions in this program for 2017-18 based on what we have learned. More information will be available by summer’s end. In the meantime, if you would like to speak with us about this program now and how it might be a fit for you, please email us and we will be in touch with you right away for a conversation.
The concept of Transformational Presence is very familiar to you, yet the idea of building a company with these principles and tools may not be. We are pleased to be able to add this support to our programs.

Jo Boniszewski (Netherlands)
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.

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, CTPC (Netherlands)
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?
—Marja Sas, CTPC, Coach-Therapist

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.

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.

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.
—Nienke van Dijk, Freelance HR Director and Coach
Sander van Eekelen, CTPC (Netherlands)
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.
—Sander van Eekelen, CTPC, Transformational Coach
Jayne L. Garrett, PCC (USA)
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.

Monica Rodriguez (Singapore)
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!

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.

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!

Rajesh Vaidya (India)
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!

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.

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.
