Gain a Deeper Understanding

Elisa did a beautiful job with instructing my ministry team (yes, we did the course together) on the principles of coaching. And she gave us so much more than just content, as she shared life lessons to help us gain a deeper understanding regarding the impact we were going to have on our clients.  I learned a lot about myself as those lessons drew me closer to God. If you're on the fence,  I encourage you to jump fully in. You will not regret it for a moment. ~ Cherie Zack, Certified Biblical Counselor and Life Coach

Great for Moms

I felt so blessed to have the tools in my hands to coach my 21-year-old son. I know that he walked away from the convo with much more clarity and some action steps he was going to take, and didn’t feel judged by me. It was also great to assure him that I had intentionally taken off my “Mom Hat” and was listening, reflecting back and asking questions to help him get from where he was to where he wants to go, and that it was about his dreams and desires, (not mine). At the end of the conversation, my son thanked me, and I thank God for His leading and guidance and for the newly learned skills and tools I have already acquired through the life coach training course. - Beth

Training Changed Me!

When I was a student, I came to understand how I skillfully God designed me and how to join Him in His work.  I discovered for the first time, truly, how to listen effectively and reach out to others in a gentle and approachable manner. What a difference it made in my parenting and marriage! Now I delight in teaching other women the same skill set, no matter how they want to use it. - Elisa Pulliam

About Your Instructor

Elisa Pulliam is a graduate of Life Breakthrough Academy, receiving her certification as a life coach in 2011, and a year later joined their family-owned company as an instructor. Since that time, she has trained and equipped women around the world to become coaches and launch their practices.

She remembers the day she enrolled as a student seeking to simply gain a credential and expertise to add to her role as the founder of More to Be, mentoring advocate, mentor, and speaker.

Elisa had no idea coaching would become her passion, ministry, and career, and also the building block upon which she pursued certification in trauma-informed equine-assisted coaching as well as an MA in Clinical Counseling with a Trauma Concentration. Her decade of experience coaching, learning, and healing through personally experiencing how God designed for the mind, heart, and bodywork together and in connected relationships, deeply impacts her teaching style and what she brings to the coach training course and in supporting coaches in the More to Be Coach Network.
