Introducing The  Gateway Program

Getting started as an Integrative Development Practitioner — the future of professional practice

During the pandemic many of us have used this time to invest in our professional development The question now becomes what are we going to do with our new knowledge? What do our clients need as we re-imagine and re-build our workplaces and communities?

We built our Gateway Program to help practitioners address two major trends: (1) the need to integrate the best of who we are and what we can do into how we work and (2) the need to offer services that work across silos to address human issues in real time.

This program brings together personal, spiritual, professional and social development into one practice. It offers an approach to learning & development that will save you time and your clients money  — and deliver more sustainable and transformative results.

This program is THE gateway to all certification programs starting in 2022: Narrative Coaching, Narrative Release and Integrative Development and Design. More certifications are in the works; every one is available to you after completing the Gateway.

The three bodies of work we teach share the same philosophy about life and work. So, we took the best expressions from each and created one transformative experience. It will free you to move through your life and work with greater ease, agility and impact!

Narrative Coaching, 2nd Edition

by David B. Drake, PhD

The book is the definitive guide to working with people's stories in transformative ways. It is timely in an era when we are grappling to create new narratives that enable us to more fully cope, connect, create and contribute.

The second edition has been revised from start to finish to include all of David's latest work and offer more examples and resources.

“What an astonishing achievement and a potent contribution to the field of human development!” – David Hutchens
