We can only travel as far as our stories will take us.
Where would you like to go?

– Dr. David Drake

The Gateway Program


The three bodies of work we teach share the same philosophy. So, we took their best foundational elements and created one transformative experience! The program is based in Dr. Drake's ground-breaking approach to learning & development that delivers more sustainable results in less time. It will transform how you see yourself and your practice; it will free you to work with greater ease, agility, and impact!

It is THE gateway to our Certifications in Narrative Coaching and in Integrative Development. They offer a path to mastery so you can stand out in a crowded market and stand tall in a world in need. Come join fellow pioneers in using the best of David's work over the past 20 years to re-invent your professional practice for these times.

Come join us in learning ways that are both ancient and revolutionary in terms of how we work with clients.



This is a program like no other. It brings together five levels of development —  personal, spiritual, professional, social and contextual — to give you the freedom and ability to work with whatever emerges in the moment in your life and your work.

It is not about gathering more information but about using more improvisation. This program will help you to distill what is essential and be compassionately courageous in helping to re-imagine and re-build our workplaces and communities. 

We built The Gateway Program to help practitioners integrate the best of who they are and what they know in how they work, and to move between roles to address real issues in real time.

There are no formulas to address the challenges we face. David's work honors all that I am and know and supports me to improvise in addressing my clients’ new now.

This was one of the best—possibly THE best workshop—I have ever attended. David is bold and sincere. He practices what he preaches. It was life-changing.

The safe and loving container David provides for transformation is unlike anything I've experienced. His ability to hold space for participants is AMAZING!

Message from David



I have brought together the best of the first half of each of our three programs. The result is the first-ever master class on the foundations of my work over the past 25 years. For those of you seeking to become a Narrative Coach: you will not only get most of our original program, but so much more.

For example, you will get access to the revolutionary Developmental Threshold Zones model from our ID program and strategies for helping clients who are struggling to open themselves up from our Narrative Release program. It is a dream come true for me and a game-changing opportunity for you.

This program opens up a whole world for you with access to our upgraded, world-class Certifications in Narrative Coaching and Integrative Development. You will also gain access to our Labs and an amazing global community. I hope you join us for this cohort.
