Trace Hobson Training is a unique experiential training approach that integrates the voluntary Canadian Standard on Psychological Health and Safety, Virginia Satir's Systemic Transformational Therapy, and Alan Seale's Transformational Presence Leadership Coaching modality.

All of the training, mentoring and coaching that Trace Hobson Training performs is intended to assist people in creating an embodied practice of psychological health and safety as the foundation for their roles, responsibilities, management, leadership, projects and relationships at work and home.

If you're like the people and organizations that I work with and me, you might have discovered the same training misconception that we did.

We thought that training and talking about concepts like safety, mental health, engagement, work-life balance, etc., would address problems and create lasting changes we needed. What we discovered was that training concepts alone didn't work.

We understand now that there must be a practice of the concepts that is experiential and practical for people so that they will adopt them individually, as a team, and throughout organizational systems.

To accomplish embodiment that takes important concepts like wellness, mental health and psychological health and safety and makes them the lived experience of the people we work with, we must use evidence-based training that harnesses how human beings learn neurobiological.

Experiential training and coaching based on presence, deep listening, and practical application take what neuroscience has taught us about how human beings learn from infancy and helps us actualize the learning in transformational experiences that last.

People worldwide are learning that when you slow down and become a more conscious manager or leader, you're able to navigate the chaos, confusion, or conflict in resourceful resilient ways.

I've discovered that when we learn to slow down, become present, and add a practice of presence to our work and lives, we tap into our power and strength.

When we learn how to embody concepts like psychological health and safety, we begin to connect to the transformational aspects within ourselves to create practical transformations in the systems we're attached to in our workplaces and homes.

That's what this training is all about.

Transformational Presence Coaching and Leadership helped me to find words, tools and simple practices that gave me something tangible to work with inside of myself, within my family and in my work as an executive leader, business owner, and human being.

I had already been coaching within these different roles, but I found it difficult at times to pass on skills and tools that helped people apply their awareness and insights to everyday life.

As I incorporated all that I learned and knew through the tools of Transformational Presence, I realized that the times that I was most effective as a business leader, project manager, manager, coach, and human being were the times that I slowed down, created a safe space, and moved at my own speed of presence in my work and life.

When I slowed down like this, I learned to listen and interpret what I heard in new ways. I discovered brand new practical solutions that I could apply to the systemic problems I was facing that just moments before seemed impossible. I learned how to apply my transformational presence, and I also learned how to guide others into their transformational presence.

It has become a source of joy for me to witness people in workplaces and homes all over the world who experience healing, wholeness, connection and deeper relationships with each other.

I had the wonderful pleasure of immersing myself in Transformational Presence Leadership and Coach training all over the world.

What is Transformational Presence?

Alan Seale, Founder & Director of the Center for Transformational Presence

In April of 2016, I met Alan in Banff, Alberta, Canada to complete his Transformational Presence Leadership and Coach Training course.

This meeting began a three-year journey for Alan and me. We worked, created, and travelled together and I learned Transformational Presence firsthand from Alan as one of the people that he mentored and taught.  

Author, speaker, and mentor to leaders and coaches around the world, Alan Seale is the founder and director of the Center for Transformational Presence. He is the creator of the Transformational Presence Leadership and Coach Training program which now has graduates from more than 35 countries. 

Alan enjoyed an extensive career as a professional singer and voice teacher in New York City.  He appeared in concert throughout the United States and Europe, and as a soloist with the New York Philharmonic, New York City Opera National Company, the Spoleto Festival (Italy and USA), and the Baltimore Chamber Orchestra. His voice students included Austrian dramatic soprano Brigitte Pinter, American coloratura soprano Cyndia Sieden, and Broadway stars Marc Kudisch and Graham Rowat.
