Coach Highlight – Ranger Kielak

Ranger Kielak

CM: Why did you enter TCE? And/or, what did you want to get out of it?

RK: I entered TCE because I saw how valuable it was to be coached by a current student in the course. I saw my relationship improve, my mindset shift to one of resourcefulness, and myself become an overall better communicator. I figured that if I was getting all of that by being coached by someone, it was just be exponentially greater to be trained AS coach! I got all of what I mentioned and then some. I started my own coaching practice and have been able to help multiple people do the same thing I was able to do as a client.

CM: What is the most valuable thing you got out of TCE?

RK: The ability to truly and deeply listen. Not just to hear what the other is saying, but to hear what is underneath everything- all the noise and everything else. It’s been fantastic.

CM: Did your reasons for entering the program change through the program?

RK: Not really. I came in wanting to develop the skills mentioned before, and I did just that.

CM: What are you doing now with your coaching education?

RK: I am currently using my skill to walk across America! I am podcasting, coaching folks along the way, and having stronger, deeper connections and conversations with folks.
