Source Point Training Celebrates 10 Years of Service!

It’s Source Point Training’s

10-Year Anniversary!

And so, it began 10 years ago this month. Lou Dozier and I, along with Kelly Mobeck, Ginny Carter and David Lysenko, launched Source Point Training. There was resistance from some saying launching in the midst of a recession was crazy and encouragement from many.

Lou and I believed our collective experience of bringing transformational trainings in the field of leadership, team building and professional coaching would get us through.

Brad Stauffer, our loyal and dedicated marketing wizard, helped to design the web site and all marketing materials to create a truly amazing brand that has sustained us for 10 years. Lou and my relationship were tested as friends learning to be partners. Ginny and Kelly, the grounded team and objective observers, coached us more than once.

Our Leadership training went from East to West from the Charlotte YMCA to First 5 for Kids in Santa Clara. The Source Point Coaches provided their coaching skills for all of our trainings. And, many new coaches took our Relationship Coach Certification training to advance their coaching skills.

Lou and I went to Mexico City with Diana Navratil and John Strosnider to train and certify professional coaches. In 2013, I began working with InVision Asia to train Leadership Coaching Skills and Certified Professional Performance Coaches in Taipei, Hong Kong, Shanghai and Beijing.

So many people along the way contributed and supported our trainings. So many fun memories and learning experiences. I won’t get into some of the late-night cab ride confessions in Tempe AZ. Many of you still out there are working with us and some like Kelly, has her own successful business now.

Thank you all for being a part of Source Point Training’s team and partner! We appreciate you all staying connected and spreading the word about the great personal and professional trainings we do. If you haven’t browsed through the pages of,  make it a point to do so and see some of our new opportunities for learning to have your personal and professional life work.

Take a few minutes for a look back at some of our SPT memories. 

Have an amazing 2020!

10 Reasons Why You Should Become a Professional Certified Coach



  1. You are working in an organization that does not have a coaching culture.You can BE THE ONE who brings these unique skills into your environment. People don’t know what they DON’T know about the power of coaching until they experience the benefits. You can lead as a coach by example.2. You are excited when people around you are winning.You have been successful in life for the most part and now feel more inspired to contribute to other’s successes.3. You love to hear new ideas and solve problems.As a coach, you will be a creative thinker and partner with clients.

    4. You are naturally intuitive and curious about why people do what they do.

    As a coach, you will ask curious questions rather than coming up with your own ideas on how to solve client’s problems.

    5. You have keenly developed observation skills.

    You enjoy watching people’s behaviors and learning to understand why they do what they do – you find this fascinating.

    6. You are patient and compassionate with people when they face challenges.

    You tend to easily see the other person’s point of view and listen to people patiently share their perspective.

    7. You like to think “outside the box” when it comes to solving problems.

    When working with people, you find yourself coming up with creative solutions and tend to try new things that haven’t been done before.

    8. You are someone whom people describe as honest with high integrity.

    You believe that being trustworthy is the key to all good relationships. You tend to keep your promises and people know they can count on you.

    9. You see problems as opportunities.

    When faced with difficult situations, you spend less time in reaction and more time being proactive. You’d rather put your energy to solutions than negativity.

    10. You are excited to be involved with change and new ideas.

    If there is a new project, you are typically the one who will sign up for it. You get bored if you spend too much time following the same system over and over again.

Why to Consider Coaching

According to a recent study from Bersin and Deloitte, it was determined that organizations with a cultural support for coaching had a 75% higher rating for management results, 39% stronger employee results, and 13% stronger business results than those with no support for coaching.

In a separate evaluation, a national university was facing economic challenges and felt they clearly needed to make substantial effective changes. They decided to invest in coaching and leadership development for its mid-level managers.

The university discovered in evaluating the coaching results, the managers who participated in coaching and leadership development had higher productivity and improved departmental outcomes. Furthermore, more than 30% of the coached managers advanced to more senior positions in the organization.

In our webinar Thursday, October 3rd at 6:00 pm (PDT), you’ll find out more about how coaches impact people’s lives.

Around since the 1990s, executive coaching previously had been used as a remedy to correct employees’ difficult behaviors and peer relationships or perceived lack of competencies.  Today organizations offer coaching as a perk  to develop better employee-management relationships and improve the overall morale of employees.They see this as a solid platform to support executive skill building, performance, and personal leadership agendas.

The Buzz About Coaching

The Buzz About Coaching

With all the buzz about coaching, more and more people are beginning to consider what it might mean for them to get a coach and also, to consider how to increase their performance and skills at work by learning how to coach others.

That is why each year we begin our Coaching Fundamental Curriculum with the student coach learning all about themselves first.

How do they see the world? How do they create judgments, likes/dislikes about others? What are their fundamental beliefs?

When we attempt to coach people with our own filters, we will not be able to really explore their perspectives. This is perhaps the hardest part of learning to be neutral as a coach. For new coaches, it is also one of the most powerful parts of learning to be a coach for others.

At Source Point Training, we refer to this as the “ground of being”. We teach our coaches that to be with others, it is important to understand your own filters so you can focus on the client and be fully present.

Another key principle in being a Professional Performance Coach is to understand you will be coaching ontologically – meaning, whatever area you are coaching the client on will also impact all areas of their life. For example, if I am coaching a client on managing time at work and prioritizing better, then he will begin to see how improvements in this area will increase how he manages time in all other areas of his life and the impact will be even greater.

Here are the top reasons why people seek coaching:

  • 48 % To develop higher potential at work or to be ready to transition to new levels in organizations
  • 26%    To have someone to work with as a trusted sounding board. Unlike a therapist   – to look towards the future and explore options and strategies for their life.
  • 12%    To address behavior issues that have them off track, i.e. to improve communication skills, improve relationships and more effective use of resources such as finances and time.
  • 14%    Misc. –   This could be health and wellness, completing goals that have yet to be accomplished, or addressing an immediate issue.

We are taking applications now for participants in this year’s Coaching Fundamentals. If you would like to schedule an interview with me, Barbara Fagan, or one of our faculty to explore how developing the skills of coaching can support you, please call my office at 707-431-1122 or email me at [email protected]




Personal Transformational Trilogy


Personal growth and change never occurs without real world experiences. Our life’s lessons teach us what to do, what not to do and how to make choices. Unfortunately, many of life’s lessons also teach us how to play it safe or use strategies designed to keep us from getting hurt or feeling like a failure.


Over time, we fail to recognize how our life’s experiences can limit us. We lose the natural desire to explore new horizons or diverse relationships and to take risk to learn something new. Our worldview becomes narrow and closes us off to new possibilities and we can become “fixed” in how we see things, how we react and how we communicate.


Source Point Training is excited to announce the collaboration with Martha Borst of Martha Borst Consulting. Barbara Fagan and Martha have been friends and colleagues for almost 10 years and have found this unique opportunity to collaborate; bringing their unique skills and experiences in the world of consulting and coaching together to form the Transformational Trilogy.


What began six years ago in the bucolic community of Healdsburg, California nestled between the ocean and the hills of wine country, is growing beyond Sonoma County. The word is spreading and many people are coming to experience personal growth and change in this beautiful part of the world.


Insight ––> Breakthrough ––> Application
Discovery ––> Permanent Change ––> Internalization fulfillment


The Basic Self Mastery Course is a caring, hardworking and inspiring educational seminar designed to generate insights and discoveries into the areas of your life that matter most to you, both personally and professionally. As we encounter the constant demands of our busy lives and the fast pace of the rapidly changing environment around us, we can easily lose balance, become overwhelmed, confused and misdirected. Often, you may find yourself feeling stressed while trying to put out fires or perhaps you’re wondering where intimacy went in your relationships. Sometimes you may feel like you’re swimming upstream and working hard, but not getting very far.

At times like these, it is critical to have a clear understanding of who you are, why you’re here, what you want, where you’re going, how you’re going to get there and how you can individually carve out the kind of future you desire.

You will learn skills, receive tools and examine the beliefs and values that influence your decision-making. By becoming aware of your power to influence and direct your current experience as well as your future, you will be able to understand how to master the navigation of your life.

The greater understanding you have of yourself and of Life’s Laws, the more successful you can be in making the right choices for yourself and the people around you and the better able you will be to become a productive, contributing member of your community.

Martha Borst will be by your side, guiding you on how to achieve your wants, needs, dreams and goals. You can count on her communication to be direct and clear. You can never offend her because this is your ride and she is only here to be of service to the quality and effectiveness of your ride. Space is limited to 16 people only and the course is only given six times a year.

I am not a self-help person, so when I was offered to participate in the Basic Self Mastery Program, I was hesitant. However, I cannot describe adequately how profound and influential those three days were for me. I came away with a purpose and a deeper understanding of my world. Martha is a force of nature. I sincerely thank her for offering me this effective and heart-warming method of connecting to self, to community and to humanity.”

Thank you Martha and Barbara for giving me this wonderful gift. I am enjoying the journey of my life more than I could have thought possible. Loving deeper, finding myself in the moment more and connecting with my kids in a wonderful new way.”

Challenging, exciting, and fun, the Leadership Source Training supports you to achieve your most important goals while living a life of rich abundance.

“Leadership was the perfect opportunity to utilize the tools I learned in the Self Mastery courses and working closely with a personal coach in setting up a goal plan, it helped me in ways I cannot begin to describe. My life is so much less convoluted now that I have a clear plan on where I want to be and what I want to do in my life. It was absolutely invaluable to me!  All three courses were hands-down the BEST investment of time and money I’ve ever gifted myself. Thank you!!”

Sourcepoint Leadership Team takes hold of the reins for Russian River Beautification

Pictured: Jarrod Holmes, Kyle Evans, Kat Baird, and Jennifer Lucas, are part of the 20-person Sourcepoint Leadership team who spent 10 weeks planning the project.

Sourcepoint Leadership Team takes hold of the reins for Russian River Beautification

Lots of fun along with gratifying work will be happening Sunday, June 23, 2019 from 10 a.m to noon, when a Healdsburg Sourcepoint Leadership team hosts a Russian River clean-up, followed by a celebratory party for all volunteers as part of their community service project.

“I felt a real need to do something about the river,” said Healdsburg local Eric Wagner, the brain-child behind the project and part of the 20-person Leadership team heading the project. Having grown up on the river, the project is particularly close to his heart. “Through this whole process, it finally feels like (our leadership team) is hitting a stride – getting it going with everybody in the community on board,” said Wagner of the project.

Having Don McEnhill, Executive Director for Russian Riverkeeper as a client in his barbershop made a nice connection for Wagner. “He’s been a client for 17 years…he was absolutely stoked” when Wagner approached him with his idea. The Russian River Beautification project, in partnership with Russian Riverkeeper and Clean River Alliance, will be working to remove trash from the Watershed before it hits the river, causes pollution and is ultimately, carried out to the ocean.

The Sourcepoint team is also selling tickets for prizes in a raffle to raise necessary funds for trash disposal costs, which totaled $20,000 in 2018. The public is invited to volunteer in the clean-up, which will offer support, camaraderie and all the tools needed to be an empowered steward of the river and its clean-up.

At the end of clean-up, a barbecue celebration for all volunteers will take place, where raffle winners will be announced. Ticket holders need not be present to win. For more information on participating in the clean-up and purchasing tickets for the raffle, visit:
