Customer Testimonials

Claire Tondreau

Mina Brown, Peggy Dean, and the team at Coach Academy International have thoughtfully and thoroughly constructed a coach training program that’s rigorous, thought-provoking, engaging, and rewarding. It seamlessly combines theory, hands-on practice, and important and useful lessons from their own experience. The lessons extend from coaching protocols to how to establish and manage a strong coaching business. Mina and the faculty are generous in sharing the abundance of what they know, transparent in how they operate, and excited by both what their students bring to the class and what they learn in the class. They’re dynamic and delightful. And if all that weren’t enough, the program is also a tremendous value since it includes not only class time but hours of support through mentor and peer coaching. It was a tremendous experience and I highly recommend it.

Sonia Cerezo

Great program, great mentor coaching afterward! I am not a morning person, so having to attend a group mentor coaching session at 8 am Monday mornings was not something I was looking forward to. But after the first session with Meg, I was hooked. Her enthusiasm was extremely uplifting and it was a great way to start my day and week.

Along the way, we all had a few technical issues. But Meg was always gracious, regardless if our image was too bright, too dark, too blurry, or just not there but a voice speaking from the beyond.
She dealt with interruptions from others graciously. I wondered how she could stay focused on all that went around, but she did.

Whenever we made mistakes she tactfully guided us. She always gave us time to share, ask questions or just simply vent about clients and used those opportunities as teachable moments to benefit everyone.

The mentor group coaching was a safe environment to share, develop relationships with our colleagues and reaffirm the coaching competencies. This was thanks to Meg’s genuine concern for each person.

Cheryl Hagan

Some of the best professional and personal advice I have ever gotten has come from Mina. I still use it!

RL Newland

Top Notch! I will recommend this to everyone I know who wants to become or consider becoming a coach. And to anyone who just wants to learn to be a better person!

J. Ratclilff

Mina is the gold standard of who I hope to be in my new venture.

Kimberly Robinson

The best thing about this class is face-to- face aspect of the program and the practical exercises. We were able to learn mostly by "doing", not just theory. I wanted an in-class experience and I received that and more.

Ruth Kirby

The best think about this program is it being intensive, best way for me to learn, immersion, loved all the coaching practice, loved being thrown in early to that process ready or not, loved all the materials, and the confidence of the instructors that we would be awesome coaches.

Ginny Mendoza

Even though it is very intense, being able to step away from your life, and focus only on coaching, lends to successful learning!

Genena Woodson Armstrong

It far exceeded my expectations. It was more rich with information and with interactive exercises than I imagined. Also, I could watch Mina teach all day! Very dynamic! Mina is the coaching Guru!

Roni

Just what I wanted, IN person, IN tensive, and IN credible!

Taylor Mechlinski

If you put in the work, come with your most authentic self, and pay attention, Mina and Peggy can make you a coach.

Debbie Keeler

I can’t thank you enough for your excellent training program which has been such a tremendous foundation on which I am building my new career. The quality of the 8-day in person training program was truly remarkable. It was by far the best training I have ever taken in my life! And that is high praise from me – an adult educator. The quality of the learning materials, the interactive exercises that really helped build the skills and develop new and meaningful relationships with other learners, the flow of the material, the high quality of facilitation, the vast experience that you both brought in the learning environment all added up to an amazing learning experience! There isn’t one thing that I would have changed about the entire experience. And then to top it off you include Group and One-to-One mentor coaching in the price of the training. I am still astounded by how supportive you are and how easy you make it to become a coach. I feel truly blessed to have stumbled upon your training.

Debbie Adams

Coach Academy is a fantastic source for coach training, especially for those who desire IN-PERSON training for optimal learning. I looked at many different coach training options, and Coach Academy was launched just in time to fill a unique place in the coach training market.

Mina helps clients make meaningful improvement. She helped me clear the way through an obstacle and on the way forward. She’s a great coach and an exceptional teacher.

Tracey Harris, MSW, CEAP, PHR, SHRM-CP

In 2012, we brought in Mina to lead an interactive team-building event for our leadership group at Caron Texas. It was a very exciting and intensive two day workshop that exceeded our team’s expectations and led to the positive results we hoped for: increased trust and accountability.

Using Patrick Lencioni’s best-seller, The Five Dysfunctions of a Team: A Leadership Fable, as a platform, Mina configured a workshop that she specifically tailored to the composition of our team and the individual personalities we brought to the table.

Through her much proven and stellar facilitation, coaching and teaching skills – and her extraordinary ability to genuinely connect with people, she led us to a place of great collaboration, agreement and commitment to the most important and specific goals we needed to accomplish in order to develop as a great leadership team that was ready to lead Caron Texas into the next stage of growth and success. Not only did we commit to these goals, we followed through on the action plan, seeing a tremendous leap in trust and accountability on the post-assessment we took some months later. She absolutely helped us move from a place of uncertainty to much increased confidence in each other and, also, in ourselves.

Mina is not only an accomplished change leader, she is also an inspiring mentor. I will most certainly look to her in the future as the expert and consultant of choice when any opportunity arises where a great team has the chance to become even greater. .

Jamil Lotia

I had a pleasure of attending one of the Seminar and Workshop on the development of 30 seconds elevator speech at the North Dallas / Plano Focus Group. I loved the way Mina involved the audience to create the 30 seconds elevator speech by developing an individual’s Essence, Guru and Star factors. Mina coaching and training was simple and straight forward such that I as I was able to create my own 30 seconds elevator speech easily. Thanks again Mina for a wonderful workshop.

Brenda Jones

Mina has been an incredible asset to me in my career and life. I had the opportunity to work with Mina at another company where her expertise brought our team great results, and I hired her when I took my current position because of her amazing skills. She consistently provides excellent coaching and helps me see the “bigger picture” when I lose sight of it. She has the utmost integrity and is a joy to work with. Because of my experience working with Mina, I have grown so much in the past five years. I would highly recommend her to anyone.

Sherry Yellin, PhD, ACC, BCC

Mina and Coach Academy have been both a life changer for me personally and a game changer for my business. Three years ago, I was certified through Mina’s program to add the coaching dimension to my leadership development and training company. I could not have predicted the impact of this decision. The performance outcomes and the financial bottom line of my company have increased exponentially. Mina is a wonderful teacher, a generous human being, and a stellar role model, mentor, and coach.

Wendy Rocco

I cannot tell you how much I appreciated my time working with Mina. She has truly helped change my professional life. If you are in need of a highly trained coach, I would consider Mina the best in class! I am happy to answer any questions on my experience with Mina through LI!

Kyle Dunn

Mina is an expert in the executive coaching and advising field. I have worked with Mina for a number of years and she is extremely effective and intuitive at providing key insights in dealing with ambiguous business situations and how to approach short, medium, and long term decisions. I highly recommend Mina as a trusted advisor for business and career decisions.

Bill O’Connor, MBA

I hired Mina to work with me and my team at Home Cinema & Sound. Mina observed the team and its interactions as well as administering some tests for profiling. The results were both eye-opening and right on target. She helped my team learn how to work together better and more efficiently, and coached more out of each of us than we knew we had in us. I would highly recommend Mina Brown for both personal coaching and business consulting.

Antoinette Vincent

Mina provided career coaching for me when I was trying to decide on a new direction for my career. Our sessions provided me with tools to determine exactly what I had to offer as well as how to strategically present them. Most importantly, we discussed, at great length, how to leverage dissappointments to gain future success. My success came recently when I was offered a position at a higher level than I had applied based on my interview! I would not have gotten that kind of success without Mina’s intensive coaching

Brad Struck, SIOR

If you are considering a career transition I highly recommend Mina. She will utilize her experience and analysis to truly understand what you are searching. Mina’s questions are thought provoking and she provides paths to reach a point where you realize what you desire in both a career and life. Mina will challenge you to not only find a career where you can be financially successful but uncover a career where you can find personal happiness as well. Mina never suggests an answer but asks questions in such manner that after private reflection, the answers provide a clear and proper path forward. I have recently changed career paths and I would have definitely not found my way without Mina’s assistance and creativity. Furthermore, Mina did not only help with choosing the future career, but developed an execution strategy to make the transition. Mina’s caring attitude and insight would be a great asset to anyone needing coaching.

Connie Crow

Mina brings her energetic personality to her workshops. Mina has a knowledge of job searching that she presents in a very creative way. With humor and her experienced job skills she gives a working knowledge of landing that desired job. I would recommend Mina to anyone that wants to improve their employment seeking skills.
