About

The Leverage for Leaders Executive Coach Certification Program teaches leading-edge communication techniques and coaching skills. This provides coaches with the ability to coach in the executive and business space, while training leaders to become certified coaches.

“We need leaders who are emotionally intelligent, and able to model and champion cooperative working. They’ll coach, rather than command; they’ll be driven by empathy, not ego. The digital revolution needs a different, more human kind of leadership.”
-Klaus Schwab, founder of the World Economic Forum (WEF)

The values of this program are: Servant leadership, Integrity, Positive Impact, Joy and Flow.

I took the Leverage for Leaders training because I wanted to add coaching skills to the “toolbox” of techniques that I use every day as a lawyer, arbitrator, mediator and advisor. It wasn’t until after I had completed the course and began working with my first coaching clients that I fully realized how fundamentally different coaching is from any of these other disciplines. Yet at the same time, coaching techniques and practices have made every aspect of my professional and personal life easier and more joyful.
–Sandy Froman., J.D

A Message from
our Founder

Hi, I’m Karen Cappello.

“This isn’t just another training program. It’s a way of communicating that inspires everyone around you.”

I am the founder and director of the Leverage for Leaders program.

Why am I so driven to help leaders? I was there. I was in many leadership positions and those positions were hard for me, as I felt pulled in two different directions. I wanted my employees to be happy and I also wanted our customers to be happy. I knew that as long as our customers were happy that our business would be profitable and fund the lives that my people desired.

There were days when the goals of both groups seemed in opposition to each other. Our happy employees were off at their kid’s soccer games, and our customers couldn’t get the answers they needed. Or our customers were happy that they got their deliverables on time, and our employees missed important family events to make that happen. And I was in the middle of it all.

When I left the corporate arena, I said I will never manage people again. It was just too hard.

When I came into coaching, I realized that if I had coaching skills when I was back in corporate, I could have managed people without being caught in the middle. I could have stayed in that leadership position and inspired everyone around me to do their best, while I remained calm and confident.

Instead of being successful and completely overworked, exhausted and tired, I could have success with ease and joy. Using coaching skills in my communication has given me the way to lead with ease, and help others to do the same.

From CEOs to non-profit board members to business professionals, learning a leading-edge, innovative way of communicating and presence has changed their lives.

When I realized that my impact as a leader in the coaching community could be used to train executive coaches who could help leaders enjoy their success and lead with ease, I knew that it was time for me to share this transformative and deeply-needed methodology with other coaches.

This is my life’s work. My desire for you is to join me, my world-class talented and accomplished curriculum leaders and your proficient and gifted peers in the Leverage for Leaders Executive Coaching Certification Program.

    FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

    What is the Leverage for Leaders Program?

    The Leverage for Leaders program is a coach training program that offers leaders an intensive and transformative certification program so they can enjoy their success and lead with ease.

    The original program was named Leverage for Lawyers and created by a lawyer who was supporting outplacement for lawyers who had been let go from large firms. It helped them to find the next job in their career.

    In 2011, Karen Cappello was given the intellectual property rights to expand the original program to include leaders and renamed it Leverage for Leaders.

    In 2012, Leverage for Leaders was named one of the founding approved training providers for the Center for Credentialing and Education.

    The program was offered to small groups of leaders in the Tucson, Arizona area for the next few years and was very well-received.

    In 2018, Karen decided that the program was too valuable to be done on a small scale and decided to get a second external certification from the International Coach Federation and offer it more regularly.

    How much does the Certification Program cost?

    The full Leverage for Leaders Executive Coach Certification Program is $6,500. If you register before the early adopter date, you will receive an early registration savings of $1000, so your cost is $5,500.

    For those who want to forego certification, and participate in the intensive only, the investment is $3,500. If you register before the early adopter date, you will receive an early registration savings of $500, so your cost is $3,000.

    We realize that this is a significant commitment for you to undertake. We have cash-flow friendly monthly options available for you.

    What’s included in the Certification Program investment?

    Your investment in this Certification Program includes all course materials, breakfast and lunch for the in-person intensive, online conference calls, mentor coaching and ongoing support from the various members of our team.

    Are there any additional costs associated with the Certification Program?

    If you need to travel to the in-person intensive, you’ll be responsible for your own transportation and hotel costs. Your breakfast and lunch are included, and you’ll be responsible for any additional meals.

    Is there a deposit to hold my place in the Certification Program?

    No deposit is necessary. Yet, please let us know you are interested so that we can send you the invoice to pay your payment as soon as possible. We limit the group to 15 people to insure that each participant gets the attention they need. Your spot in the Certification Program is not guaranteed until we have received your payment.

    If you request a payment plan, your first payment is due to hold your space.

    Are there monthly payments available?

    Yes! If you register before the early adopter date, you can do monthly…. via PayPal, and they will be $1,100/month for 6 months for the full certification program and $600/month for the intensive only.

    What types of payment are accepted?

    We accept online payments through Stripe and PayPal.

    What’s your refund policy?

    If you withdraw from the program for any reason, we must receive that request in writing. All withdrawal requests received more than 30 days prior to program start will receive a full refund, minus US$1000 deposit fee. From 30 days in advance until the start of the program, no refunds are given. However, you can apply what you’ve paid to another program in the future (up to 2 years from your withdrawal date).

    Registering for the Leverage for Leaders training is a life-transforming decision, and we want to ensure that you stay empowered and aligned with your decision.
