Founding Advisors

Our Flagship coach training program was HawkEye Certified Veteran Development Coach Training.  (It is now renamed as CLMC – Certified Life Map Coaching.)

More than 10 years ago we launched it as the FIRST CCE-BCC Approved Coach Certification Training in the USA, to focus on Military Service Members. Since then we have expanded to offer more BCC-Approved Coach Certification programs, CEU programs and in the future potentially will offer other credential training.

We are eternally grateful for the advising from Debra Pearce-McCall, PhD, LP, LMFT and Joseph Almond. Later we brought on several more experts for advising to include:
