A Bit of History
2009: Dr. Jeff Evans and Ms. Justina Vail Evans created Envision Coach Training, bringing almost six decades of diverse training and experience between them to the table.
Jeff's brain child, the initial purpose for the school was to train and mentor coaches and consultants working through his company Envision Global Leadership (EGL), best known for its proprietary assessments, the ALII MapTM and LeaderNAVTM and its world-class coaching services. For decades EGL has worked with C-level executives in Fortune 500 companies, including Chevron, the Gap, Clorox, and General Dynamics.
Over the next year Jeff and Justina worked together to develop a high-level curriculum for coaches with a threefold purpose in mind:
Firstly to make sure that the coaches who worked for EGL had a high level of skill and were in alignment with EGL's time-proven model for coaching.
Secondly, the organizations that EGL served were increasingly requiring that only coaches certified by the International Coach Federation (ICF) work with their executives. Earning the program an ICF Accreditation meant that coaches could be trained and certified though the school and the requirement could be fulfilled.
Thirdly, so that Jeff and Justina were able to meet and observe possible candidates to come on board and work with EGL's clients.
2010: With the success of the program Jeff and Justina decided to open our doors to the public and coaches from all over the US showed up to attend our first 6-Module training.
2011: Envision Coach Training was awarded an Accreditation by the International Coaching Federation (ICF) and we were proud to provide our first Accredited Coach Training Program that year.
2020: Our fully in-person program was taken over by the new and improved fully virtual coach training program, allowing people from all over the globe to gain access to our world-class coach training and certification.
"I am convinced this is the best coach training available."
