Transforming the way you live and work in the world

Coaches, Consultants, Psychotherapists

As professionals helping others, what tools do coaches, organizational and human resource consultants, educators, and therapists need to stimulate personal and professional growth? As fellow practitioners, we at GISC understand the need to continue to learn, to test new techniques, and to build a community of support. Based on our own Cape Cod Model©, our programs take powerful ideas and put them into action, transforming theory through practice, and inspiring profound change in both our clients' and our own lives.
