The 2-day workshop includes the following materials:

           The Coach Approach by CG™Participant Workbook
           The CG Coaching Conversation Protocols™ card
           549 Powerful Coaching Questions 22page PDF manual. 
           Everything DiSC™personality profile and coaching preference summary

Picture4                        Picture5

The Everything DiSC™ personality profile and coaching preference summary is a self-inventory that allows people to discover how they want to give and receive feedback and advice, as well as shows a snapshot of how individuals can have effective communication in relationships. The preferences in the DiSC™show participants both how they want to be coached and how they can be more effective as a coach. It consists of four preferences, each with its own strengths and liabilities: Dominance, Influence, Steadiness, and Conscientiousness.

The Dominance preference describes coaches who like to be in control, are direct communicators, focus on results, and think about the possibilities. They are willing to take on new challenges or risks, set goals, and work hard to achieve them.

The Influence preference describes coaches who are outgoing, enthusiastic, optimistic, and spontaneous. As coaches, they are excellent communicators, can be very persuasive, and are comfortable as the center of attention.

The Steadiness preference describes coaches who are accommodating, humble, tactful and even-tempered. As coaches, they are patient, thorough, and like to make everyone in a group comfortable.

The Conscientiousness preference describes coaches who are analytical, precise, systematic and hardworking. They are careful to think things through, experts at analyzing and solving problems, and careful and diplomatic communicators.



The Coach Approach by CG™ workshop is your opportunity to learn and practice foundational coaching skills in a two-day accelerated program.

You'll discover your natural coaching preference and how to adapt it to be more effective. You'll learn an easy-to-use coaching model and will have numerous opportunities to practice it over the two days with other participants using real-life scenarios.

Learning–just like a coaching conversation–isn’t complete without a plan to act. You’ll create a personal action plan that focuses on outcomes and how you will apply new skills in your role. You will have an opportunity for an individual practice coaching conversation with the facilitator as follow-up after the session in a Group Mentor Coaching call.

A 3 - hour Workshop Experience and overview of all three Advanced Workshops from Character Genetics


Imagine a world inside your mind that has no limits on what you could do? No limit to the love you experience, the impact you make, the wealth you create, and the satisfaction that comes as a result! The dreams you have seen are now within reach and your goals are achievable. The fear of "what if" or the thoughts of "not good enough" turn into "no matter what" and "more than enough" possibilities you can't wait to make happen. Imagine living your life in the real world without the limits that you've placed on yourself. What would living life limitless look like for you?

After years of coaching individuals, leaders, and professionals, I've found several self-limiting mindsets common to human nature that are crushing the dreams of good people... and most people have no idea that their own thinking is the problem. Change our thinking, and we will change our results! But how? What specific mindsets are limiting me? How do I discover them? How do I change them? What do I do to create permanent shifts and lasting change?

I invite you to live life limitless!

In the Limitless™ Workshop you will experience the Inducer Transformation System, a system of tools and activities that will produce accelerated, measurable, sustainable change in all areas of your life.

We also realize many people want to "know what we are all about" before taking the next step into coaching or the advanced workshop series offered through Character Genetics and Limitless™ does just that.

Is Limitless for the executive or entrepreneur? The businessperson or the non-profit leader? Is this for college students or retired adults in transition? Is this for stay at home moms, blue collar or white collar workers? Is Limitless™ for someone who's already attended a workshop from Character Genetics? YES!
