Cora is a leading authority on identifying and eliminating barriers. She is a certified Core Dynamics Coach which is very different than a traditional coach.

Clients of Core Dynamics coaches tend to experience rapid and profound breakthroughs that conventional coaches can’t achieve because they don’t have access to the necessary techniques.

Most people know that experience is important. Cora Whittington has offered more than 2600 coaching sessions and taught over 250 different classes on organization, business and personal development as well as trained over 2500 people in facilitation skills. She is a sought after speaker by many business organizations.

A Favorite Quotes:

“Be the change you want to see”

“Appreciate what is coming”

“We cannot focus upon the weaknesses of one another and evoke strengths. You cannot focus upon the things that you think they are doing wrong, and evoke things that will make you feel better. You’ve got to beat the drum that makes you feel good when you beat it. And when you do, you’ll be a strong signal of influence that will help them to reconnect with who they are.”
