Transformational Coaching for Clients

There are thousands of programs available to help returning citizens prepare for the workforce and get skills training. However, more is needed. Transformation starts with the mind. If there is no success there, recidivism is likely to occur sooner than later. This is what made former Bridging Visions clients become successful. The coaching and workshops provided to them consisted of:

    • Setting yourself free
    • Removing negative behaviors and thought patterns
    • Living Life on Purpose
    • Knowing there is more to your life than what you believed, experienced, or was told
    • Your Next Move
    • Planning and preparing for success. This focuses on mind, body, and soul alignment
    • Strategizing Your Future
    • Putting together the action plan
    • Just Do It!
    • Taking action
