Safe-ish spaces

We create and hold spaces that allow you to learn and grow. This requires both psychological safety (so you can take risks) and providing opportunities for you to push your developmental edges so you can level up.

"Artful Design and Facilitation really opened my eyes to the elements that can make trainings really transformational. The breakout group work was very intentional and the participants very engaging."

What Our Community is Saying

"Coaching For Equity gave me so much HOPE! Hope that the transformations we need are possible and hope that I can learn and practice and have the conversations we all need to make those transformations in our schools happen. Thank you, Bright Morning team!"

Tina M.
What Our Community is Saying

"The Art of Coaching Teams workshop went beyond meeting my expectations. It felt so good to be part of a community of learners who wanted to be there and were so open and vulnerable with their contributions to the learning. I liked the role-playing best. It was scary, but it was impactful to practice real potential conversations in a low-stakes way. I really appreciate the learning experience and would take another Bright Morning course in a heartbeat."

Randi R.
What Our Community is Saying

"Hands-on practice in a supportive community is the best way to develop confidence and skills. I felt like a better coach after just the first Transformational Coaching Accelerator!"

Jeanne F.
What Our Community is Saying

"In The Art of Coaching Emotions, no one had a chance to hide behind rhetoric or jargon. We were working. Feelings were centered and truths were told. This is an executive level offering. I'm looking forward to future trainings. Thank you!"

Lavonne H.
What Our Community is Saying

"The Art of Coaching was so practical and inspiring. It is clear that Elena brings a deep well of joy and experience to coaching. The strategies she shared are practical and doable. I feel like I went from watching coaching sessions and thinking "Wow....I'll never know how to do that" to feeling empowered with some clear strategies, thoughts, and question ideas to begin my growth journey as a transformational coach!"

My favorite part of being a Bright Morning member is participating in a supportive community dedicated to learning. I am enjoying the connections with professionals across the country in a variety of roles. We are able to be risk-takers together in role-plays, which help strengthen the new skills. I feel empowered and excited after every session. My colleagues have shared observations in my growth as a coach and facilitator. My membership has been an investment in myself professionally and personally.

My favorite part of being an All-Inclusive Bright Morning member is the opportunity to access so many workshops in community with others, and a bank of resources to work through alone. It has been rigorous and invigorating!

As an Instructional Coach, my Bright Morning membership helped me deepen my coaching skills and stay energized. My favorite part of being a Bright Morning member is getting to learn with amazing presenters and other coaches from all over the world. I especially love working with my peer coaches over multiple sessions - sharing our real-life experiences and things we've taken from these learning sessions has accelerated my growth as a coach so much. And I also really value that my membership allows me to schedule PD when it fits my ever-evolving schedule. Plus, there are powerful one-day sessions - shout out to the Transformational Conversation Accelerators!

My favorite part of being a Bright Morning member is the access to the incredible resources associated with our membership. Bright Morning is already generous with the free tools they provide educators and, as a member, there’s even more access. Another favorite part of my membership is that the incredible trainers actually show us how to use the tools in Elena’s books for full impact. I’ve learned so much about myself and my work and have leveled up my skills as both a coach and trainer. This membership is the gift that keeps giving!

My Bright Morning membership has shifted the way I see myself and the impact my work can have on others and their teaching and learning experiences. It continues to support my personal and professional growth as I dive into the different layers embedded in The Art of Coaching. My favorite parts of being a Bright Morning member are pacing my own learning, as well as all the opportunities to watch and be part of live coaching sessions to extend my learning and strengthen my coaching skills.
