“I really didn’t know what to expect, but came away with new insights about myself, my goals and my career.”

– Cindy, USA

“The training was incredible! Thank you for all of the follow-up documentation. I have been making my way through the paperwork, as well as the 54 pages of notes that I took. I originally thought that this training was something that I would try to practice over the next few months, but really focus on further down the road. I now know that once the door is opened, you can’t stop destiny. I already have three practice clients booked. I feel grateful for the opportunity to work with [Floursing Life Coaching] and for the wonderful network that was formed.”

The Certified Flourishing Coach Model™ is evidence-based and practitioner focused, meaning that it is based on science and psychology.  “Evidence-based” describes an approach to medicine, education, and other disciplines that emphasizes the practical application of the findings of the best available current research.  Essentially, it means that a concept or practice is supported by a large amount of scientific research.

So, when we describe the Flourishing Coaching Model™ as evidence-based, we mean that we are taking the best available current research around people, change, and specifically how people flourish, and practically applying it with a coaching lens. 

Is the Certified Flourishing Life Coach™ Program


Having literally trained and certified thousands of coaches from dozens of countries all around the world, from all backgrounds and philosophies and paradigms and professions, we have noticed what it takes to become a successful coach who has significant impact.  You may be asking yourself what is needed to make it as a coach.  Here’s what we’ve noticed makes a GREAT coach:


One of the greatest myths is that coaches do most of the talking.  They don’t. They spend the majority of their time LISTENING and asking great questions that lead their clients to the answer they are looking for.  If you’re a great listener, you would be a great coach!


Coaches see opportunities where others see obstacles.  They empathize with their clients and where they are at, but they are also able to move them to see past limitations to possibilities.  If you have a way about you that sees solutions to problems, you would be amazing at this!

Growth Mindset

Great coaches know how to listen to their inner voice.  They are intuitive and reflective.  They know they don’t have all the answers but look for a way to find them.  They are committed to their own personal growth and move others towards a growth mindset as well.  


Your life experience makes you an amazing coach already, and so when you combine that with the evidenced-based practices you can learn in the Certified Flourishing Coaching™ model, you will have a framework for your coaching that will set your clients up for success.

The certified Flourishing coaching courses have been absolutely amazing. I have taken some of the trainings and certification courses, and have found them to be one of the very best out there.

The Certified Flourishing Coaching program is by far one of the most outstanding coach certification programs out there. Being part of the CFC community is so supportive and truly a global family. The 10 different domain certifications are incredible and packed with information and tools to work with your coaching clients, but also such powerful tools to use in you own personal life and self development. Becoming a Coach and Facilitator with Certified Flourishing Coaching really reignited the passion in me to step into full-time coaching. I would highly recommend this program as the strengths-based methods and science of Flourishing is proven to radically change lives for your clients and yourself. Invest in yourself to create a Flourishing life!

With all the life experience so far, I never could have imagined I would be in the coaching industry, yet here I am. I love how Certified Flourishing Coaching is not only about substance filled learning, it’s also strength and evidence based. With a community of support pre-trainings and post-trainings, it has helped an introvert like me learn how to make a positive impact and income as well. Whether you want to build a successful coaching business or lead better in life, this is for you. Thank you CFC 🌿
