Answering the "Call to Coach"

The Institute for Coaching Excellence was founded by Alexis Goggans, PCC & Christian Hartley, PCC in 2020 with one mission -- to train a cohort of diverse coaches who embody and lead their clients towards excellence.


Since 2018 Christian & Alexis have provided life, career, and executive coaching to emerging leaders, organizations, and agents for social good. Together they have more than 8 years of formal experience deepening their study and practice of coaching, while running successful coaching businesses.

We are excited to offer our experience, insights, and skills to teach others who feel compelled to answer the call to coach.
