MCC Radical Wisdom, Essence of Mastery Summit

Biographical Info

Coaching since 1997, Annie Gelfand is the founder of Radical Wisdom and the co-creator and host of the Essence of Mastery Summit.  Annie is certain that the path of coaching mastery has the secret sauce it takes to help us be better human beings. Her sweet spot is mentoring credentialed coaches on the path of coaching mastery.

After learning of the daunting failure rate for the ICF MCC exam in 2009 (it was 93%, by the way), she set about exploring what would help MCC applicants successfully pass the exam. She discovered that mastery is not a destination but a way of BEING. The journey from PCC to MCC was life changing. It grew her personally and professionally, and her effectiveness as a coach catapulted into success she could not imagine.

Annie also founded the Wisdom Foundation, a not-for-profit humanitarian service focusing on education in coaching mastery. When coaches hold a space of love and non-judgement, when people feel seen, heard, and understood and learn how to do that for others, they explore and fulfill their gifts to become better human beings.

Annie holds a Master of Business Administration degree and has more than 30 years of experience in corporate and small business.  She is a Certified Professional Co-Active Coach, trained in Organizational and Relationship Systems Coaching and Team Coaching, and has been an ICF MCC Assessor since 2017.
