“As a personal Life Balance Coach for the past 10 years, having taken many courses, seminars and University sponsored programs on the subject of coaching during that time – I can truly say the SCI program leaves them ALL in the dust!  The fact that it’s powerful information is put together in such an easy-to-understand, yet concise manner – makes it a fantastic turn-key system!  Add the clarity and integrity of the program’s presenters as icing on the cake and I highly recommend SCI to both new and seasoned Coaches.  You’ll find it’s an incredibly worthwhile investment in your practice, your future, your life!  Thank you, Jodi and Shawn!”   ~ Christine S. Fox, PhD

“Becoming a Success Coach has been an Extremely Powerful Experience for me. The training was tough for me, not because of the content, but because it made me look at myself for another angle and gave me closure and ability to effectively process my feelings in a safe and nurturing environment. At the same time it taught me how to get out of my own way. Since then, I have hit the ground running, I have become a better Mother, Sister, Friend and Most importantly… Intutive Coach!! Looking forward to a Long Journey with you Jodi and Success Coaching Institute.” – Monica Hernandez
“Jodi is ‘fabulous.’ She intuitively and professionally understands how to connect with her clients on multiple levels. The focus was always on what I needed to get out of the sessions. This wonderful coach won’t stop until you are 100% satisfied with the materials and her services. In our follow up session Jodi went above and beyond to help me to prepare exercises for an upcoming live event. You will be well advised to choose her for your coach or for your coach certification.”
~Beate Chelette, CEO The Women’s Code; BeateChelette.com


My expectations of the training were greatly exceeded and the bond created among my participants and Jodi is something that will deeply be cherished. Learning and doing the Vision Statement was very powerful for me as a divine human being but I’m also looking forward to incorporating it to my coaching practice to empower and inspire my clients to a whole new level.

Thank you again for this amazing journey.

The Success Coach Institute presents innovative concepts, models, and thought scenarios. The materials are built on strong historical, well-researched and reference sources. The course has good closure, relevance is demonstrated in “walking back the cat” through key elements covered all the way to the beginning. The course exceed my expectations and brought new insights to my previous mentoring/coaching approach. It created positive challenges to “translate” SCIs way into context of my practice culture and participant mind set. I would definitely recommend the Success Coach Institute for coach certification. ~ Dr. Francesco A. Calabrese

“In the Success Coach Institute 3-day Training I experienced immediately the power of the tools provided and the coaching received. I know I am now equipped to provide exceptional value to my coaching clients, helping them to discover their best selves. Jodi Nicholson is a master in content delivery, including participants in a value-based setting (meeting our specific needs), and delivering beautifully beyond my expectations.”    

Pam Wiley, CPSC ~ Speaker and Success Coach

My thank you to Jodi: My year 2011 has been a journey of learning starting with TTT where I learned about EFT and immediately registered for a course in that (with Emo Trance and TAT). In October I took The Reconnective Healing course and in November I attended a NLP Practitioner training. After the NLP course I thought that was the crown of my year, and it still is but you and the training with SCI are definitely the jewels in the crown. I hold you highly as a trainer and as a person. The material is of highest quality and yet presented so well it’s easy to understand and use. The work you did with me on Monday has already changed my lifein the sense that I now have trust coming from deep inside of me that I can and I have a mission = I can be of use for others. I’m 53 years old.  There has been a feeling inside of me that I know some good things but also that what I know is of no good to anyone else. NOW I KNOW DIFFERENT! Thank you so much for giving me that!!! Thank you so much for everything and the course. I enjoyed listening to you, doing the exercises and sharing and connecting with the others. Love and deep respect, Anna Mollander

So glad I took this class! It was much more hands-on and less intimidating than I thought it would be to get a certification. I resonated so well with Jodi’s energy and clarity of her message. I loved how our goals were broken down to realistic, do-able chunks since starting a coaching business had seemed like an overwhelming venture to undertake. I was pleasantly surprised at how available Jodi was for after-hours email and phone contact and the openness to retake the course at any time at no cost.

Dear Jodi –

I want to say thank you for all you have done to provide me with the experience of Success Coach Institute.  From our very first conversation a couple of months ago, I could sense the sincerity within you and your desire to do good for others through this program.  I really appreciate the way that you were so willing to work with me on a time frame for the sessions.  Because of your flexibility and concern for my schedule, the timing worked out perfectly.  Thank you.

Through our interactions in the sessions, it was plain for me to see that you are an extremely gifted coach and teacher.  You absolutely know your stuff!  Also, I know I mentioned earlier that I have lived with the obstacle of feeling judged in situations like these (interactive classes, speaking roles, etc.), but it is so clear that you come from a place of service and not judgment that I felt completely at ease and totally safe.

Thank you for being available to me in case I had any questions about anything.  You have such a kind and giving personality and I am so grateful that our paths have crossed. Please let me know if I can help you in any way.

All my best, Marie

Comments made on the SCI Certification Course Evaluation Forms

  • I highly recommend that every coach learn from Success Coach Institute. It is the perfect course for beginners, or seasoned professionals! If you are even considering the profession of coaching, look no further for training programs, THIS IS IT! SCI over delivered in a huge way and I found more value out of this 3 day training course, than some that I’ve taken over the period of 12 months!! SCI is not only about training coaches, it is truly a system for the development of coaches and clients. The level of integrity, value, and quality is simply unmatched! I am proud to have incorporated this course into my Graduate Degree learning! It is that level of education! Thank you SCI! – Tiffany Oddo, CPSC
  • Thank you for putting together such an amazingly thought out and well developed program.  I feel this program has given me the tools and the support I will need to launch my coaching practice.  SCI, has guided me on my journey to rebuild my inner confidence and  to become an excellent coach. By taking time tested methods combined with years of experience in the coaching industry, SCI has developed a program that can be immediately implemented and also gradually expanded upon to personalize my work as a coach.  In addition to the professional aspect of this course, the content can be utilized in my own life as well.

Dear Jodi and Shawn,

 After taking your Success Coach Certification I am so much more confident serving my clients. I loved all your processes and how you taught it all to me. Even better are the tools you gave to me to help me get all my clients on the direct path to success.

Your program not only taught me through your webinar, documentation, and the one-on-one coaching we did with other students – it really anchored the lesson in. I love being a coach and now I am prepared with the best tools in the industry. The ongoing support  you are giving me is indispensable. Having master mentors an email or phone call away means there is no client or issue I will not be able to help.

I loved how you drilled into us that as coaches we do not need to know all the answers, but we must know how to ask the right questions. 

I recommend anyone who is a coach and wants to become the best in their field or someone thinking I always wanted to be a coach, there is no better class certification available. Thank you and I look forward to our long successful relationship,

Charlie Collins, CPSC Certified Professional Success Coach
