MOMENTUM COACHING IN LATIN AMERICA:
COACHING HALL INTERNATIONAL
An initial pilot program of Momentum Coaching was delivered
by me and my buddy L.A. Reding in March 2003 in Bogotá in
collaboration with our dear friends and colleagues Sonia
Sinisterra and Luis Maldonado. The program was a smash
hit, and led to a contract to design a comprehensive
curriculum that could be used as a powerful basis for
a certification program that would meet the standards
of the International Coach Federation.
A year later, the first cohort of professional coaches
from all parts of Colombia and other Latin American countries
completed the first certification program in its entirety,
and I joined Sonia and Luis as a partner in Coaching
In August 2004 the first group of Program
Leader Candidates completed a leadership training process
to qualify them to lead courses in the Coaching Hall
were off and running! In 2009, we launched a new direction,
new advanced curriculum of Team and Executive Coaching,
and partnership led by myself, Sonia Sinisterra, and
Adriana Vasquez. With a growing faculty and programs
now running in Peru, Costa Rica, Panama, and Ecuador,
our vision is being made real.

In the silence between your
bides a summons.
Do you hear it?
Name it, if you must,
it forever nameless.
But why pretend
it is not there?
