Training for Organizations
Leadership development and coaching skills training for purpose-driven organizations
Zo Tobi, PCC • Certified Coach

We are each here for a purpose, both individually and together. There is some unique contribution we are here to make, to our community and to our world.

Fulfilling that purpose requires a specific skill set for going past obstacles and familiar stopping points, and moving our ideas into physical reality.

That’s where coaching skills training comes in. As a certified coach and licensed trainer, it’s my joy to offer this training to your organization.

I look forward to partnering with you!

With love,

Zo Tobi, PCC
Professional Certified Coach & Licensed Trainer


What you will get

The outcome of coaching skills training is a coaching culture — one that empowers your organization to fulfill its mission with clarity, focus, ease, and grace. This culture is marked by:

  • Mindfulness & self-awareness

    Quickly observe and rise above your self-limiting inner dialogue.

  • Resilience & emotional intelligence

    Stay centered and respond with grace, no matter the circumstances.

  • Authenticity & effective communication

    Act from who you truly are, rather than from your fears and pretense.

  • Empowerment & collaborative leadership

    Create a context in which others can see and act from their greatness.

  • Growth mindset & organizational learning

    Continually and actively learn, grow, and develop amidst of obstacles.

  • Productivity & purpose-driven action

    Move your vision into reality with clarity, focus, ease, and grace.

Training topics

I will custom-tailor your training to your unique needs and context. Topics include (but are not limited to):

  • Stress, overwhelm, and burnout

    Burnout is an all-too-common feature of mission-based organizations. Coaching skills empower us to get to “the root causes” of these issues, so that we can create an environment in which people can flourish.

  • Resilience in times of uncertainty and change

    Stress is often a byproduct in times of rapid change. Coaching skills help lift us out of knee-jerk reactivity and into a responsive way of being that lets us engage — and even thrive — amidst adversity.

  • Creating a culture of trust and compassion

    Organizations with a collaborative culture enjoy increased innovation, performance, and satisfaction. Coaching skills help us create a context in which people are seen, valued, and supported with no one left out.

  • Having difficult conversations with ease

    Difficult conversations put our brains in a heightened state of anxiety. Coaching skills provide a way to bring compassion and a generosity of spirit to these interactions — so that the outcome is empowering.


I have logged over 1600 hours of professional coaching, and am rigorously trained through the Academy for Coaching Excellence (ACE), an Accredited Coach Training Program through the International Coach Federation (ICF).

My work is rooted in ontology, the study of being. Ontology looks at what it truly is to be human: The values we live by, the heroic journey we are each here to take, and, ultimately, the gift to others we want to be known for.

My pedagogy blends didactic presentation, personal reflection, group coaching, peer interaction, and experiential skill-building. My training approach involves:

  • Timeless principles

    The foundation of my work is a set of success and empowerment principles, derived from spiritual teachings and scientific findings.

  • Practical tools

    My approach provides simple tools and practices you can use to immediately apply success principles in your life and work.

  • Lifelong skills

    My trainings create the space and structured support for you to gain skill in using the tools, so you can enjoy their intended benefit.

  • Tangible results

    By practicing the tools provided, you will see a set of concrete, tangible outcomes for your organization and the people in it.
