Fred designs and delivers programs and workshops that include “The Studio Model.” The Studio is a place to experiment, discover and breakthrough to new insights and ways of thinking. The Studio is above all a place in which everything is possible and the possible begins to become real.

“The Innovation Studio experience was eye opening – both personally and as a team. It brought to light the habits and assumptions we bring into work each day that may be getting in the way of true success. I was impressed with Fred and Kathy’s attention to detail in planning and their ability to adjust as the Studio unfolded to ensure the experience produced maximum benefits to both individual participants and the business.”

“Empowering, increases my creativity, incredibly surprising. I thought I knew so much about myself and my coaching and I keep getting surprised in positive ways. It is fun, interesting and curious. I think this course allows my spirit to lead the way.”

Kerry Bennett, M.D., surgeon and life coach

“The design is outstanding: independent work, group interaction, option for “buddy” and the website community. The impact for myself personally and what I’ve done so far with one client is a deeper and quicker path to change.”

Judy Skoglund, Executive Coach and Chief Learning Officer
