Our Promise at the The Power of Coaching event is simple:You will uplevel your communication skills,
get smarter about the changing world we’re in,
and understand how to grow your business better.
The Power of Coaching LIVE supports and centers underrepresented topics, and leaders that confront the status quo. We collaborate with speakers and teachers who are active in the trenches, fearlessly
creating the new normal, and who have the experience to help us challenge our assumptions.
Through a format we’re calling a “wisdom potluck,” there will be space for anyone with wisdom to share during Q&A and masterminding sessions.
Our content sections will be led by some very exciting leaders, including professors, TEDx Speakers, business leaders, musicians and founders of technology companies. They have led reform in politics, mental health, racial justice and more. We are simply delighted to welcome to Power of Coaching LIVE:
Brooke Donatone, PhD, LCSW
Mental Health in the Age of Gaslighting
After an article she published on Slate went viral, and attracted the attention of trolls, Dr. Brooke Donatone realized her approach towards mental health is profoundly needed. In private practice for over a decade, she specializes in LGBT issues, chaotic families, depression, anxiety, specific phobias, and trauma.
Her paper on the Focused Suggestion with Somatic Anchoring Technique in the American Journal of Clinical Hypnosis won the William S. Kroger Award for Best Paper. She received her Ph.D. in Social Work from NYU, and an MSW from SUNY Stony Brook. She is also the current President of the New York Milton H. Erickson Society for Psychotherapy & Hypnosis (NSEPH).
Unpacking Racial Bias
Leadership to Trudi means (1) creating racial and ethnic diversity across the coaching industry and (2) challenging all leaders, including coaches, to leverage their business models to create social impact. In short, she calls the coaching profession a key player in social change, period. That is, if it fulfills its potential. She consults, speaks, coaches and hosts the popular podcast “That’s Not How It Works.”
Trudi holds a BA in Theatre, MS in Psychology with concentrations in Social Change and Public Administration, and is a PhD candidate in Social Psychology. After her controversial training at the Thrive Transformational Leadership Retreat in 2018, she’s become one of the most sought-after diversity teachers serving the coaching profession.
Innovations in Lead Generation
Maribel’s middle name might as well be ‘collaborative,’ or is it ‘out-of-the-box?’ Whichever, she has a reputation for being an innovator in the area of lead generation. It doesn’t matter how great your offer or product is if you lack in this area!
Whether you’re sick of the traditional launch model and/or interested in adapting it, Maribel will bring her 20 years of biz development for organizations up to multimillions in revenue, and help us see lead generation in fresh ways. In addition to being CEO of Your Dream Launch, she is also the mom of 4, and co-founder, with her husband, of a martial arts non-profit helping to build youth leaders via sports.
Three parts activist leader, three parts nurturer, two parts digital marketer, one part artist, one part rebel. That’s Emily. When you don’t find her investigating abnormalities in a recent election or consulting with leaders about how to do their work more powerfully, you might find her untangling a client’s email automations.
Emily has been a leader in social justice movements since childhood, and in the movement for secure and transparent elections in the U.S. since 2004. Her consulting business combines activist experience, deep listening skills, and digital marketing expertise to elevate the work of women leaders and social impact organizations.
Decolonization, tokenism, white supremacy, there is scarcely an uneasy topic Sonali is afraid to lead us through, and always with heart. A Sri Lankan-American mentor to underrepresented, woman-identifying voices of color, Sonali centered over 20 powerful stories of black, indigenous women of colour in her recent online offering “Dismantling White dominance in Women’s Entrepreneurship”and is credited with helping to tip the narrative in the transformational industry towards equity and inclusion.
Sonali is a council member of the International Council of Interfaith & Indigenous Women, and a celebrated teacher and speaker.

A little more about your host
In case you don’t know me, I discovered the coaching world nearly 20 years ago, as a burned out business owner of a recruitment business. Little did I know, the reason that business was failing was because I really needed coaching skills. Turns out, I was about to learn them, and fast, as the customer service manager, then General Manager, then COO of the world’s first online coach training company!
In those roles, I helped support over 100,000 coaching businesses in a time when coaching was still a mystery all mixed up with sports.
We learned the hard way, as pioneers of a new industry, what it takes to provide clients what they most need.
Through books (Multiple Streams of Coaching Income, anyone?) trainings (How Not to Mess Up a Joint Venture: Sharing the Money was a favorite) and support offerings (like Online Business Manager with business bestie Tina Forsyth, and Events without Borders, the first livestream service of its kind), I have watched, and taken part in, so much good from the coaching world.
I believe coaching is one of the most powerful forces for good in the world.
And yet, recently, I’ve felt sad – people talk about coaching as a big investment that didn’t create a result, or, worse, led to setbacks. Sometimes, I see things sold in the name of coaching that isn’t at all coaching, even if we use a generous definition of it!
The fact is, there’s an enormous amount of power involved in coaching well, like being great at doing internal surgery. Being entrusted with this, I think it’s our job to continuously find ways do better.
We can do much better.
When we invest in making our coaching excellent, we rebuild trust with clients,
and we say yes to the next chapter for coaching
It’s true, over the years, I’ve also helped a good number of businesses make significant money – I still do that with a small number of private clients. Then in 2018, in my work on emotional abuse prevention, I had a video on Upworthy.com go viral, and an article “I verbally abused my husband: Here’s How I Stopped” was accepted in the Washington Post. I’m in the middle of a Master’s degree, and some might say, rather accurately, that I have a full plate. But the vision for The Power of Coaching simply would not quit me, so here we are.
That’s why, after leading 13 live trainings, and returning from 27 months of sabbatical, I’m so thrilled, and why I urge you to join us at The Power of Coaching LIVE.
There are exciting times ahead, with challenges in the world that coaching can help to meet. It’s time to double down on the impact we have for our clients and communities, and re-committing to becoming the best at our craft.
Above everything else, I know this for sure:
you are so much more powerful than you think.
The question that remains is: what are you going to do about that?
