Are you a Certified Sherpa Coach? Then you know the Sherpa method is the most detailed process in print. EXCO is about maintaining mastery of that complex process. It’s about recertification. It’s about reconnecting with colleagues from a large and encouraging community. EXCO is like a class reunion – stay in touch and support the people you studied with!


Have you come to appreciate the Sherpa process, in whole or in part? EXCO is a unique chance to work directly with the authors and creators of the process.


Are you considering the Sherpa certification? EXCO is a big step toward the confidence, determination and discipline required to become a Certified Sherpa Coach. Get that first foot in the door!

Over the years we’ve welcomed both a wide variety of speakers and a global audience of coaches. This year we go back to basics. EXCO 2017 will focus exclusively on mastery of the Sherpa process for executive coaching. Who should attend? Every certified Sherpa coach, and every practitioner of the Sherpa process, should be there!


The primary speakers will be the founders of Sherpa Coaching. Brenda Corbett and Judith Kinebrew are the world’s leading educators in the coaching industry. Karl Corbett leads the most extensive market research in the history of coaching, 12 years running. The three of them, along with several Master Sherpa coaches will ramp this conference up to a whole new level.

Think of EXCO2017 as more of a workshop than a conference: Intimate. Focused. Productive. Scattered breakout sessions will be replaced by a single-track event. You can expect lots of group work, case studies, and real interaction. The three-day program will concentrate on actual coaching skills: the skills that make you a better, more successful – and more prosperous – coach. You’ll build a network of top-flight professional peers. Independent coaches will rub elbows with coaches from Fortune 100 corporations, government agencies, and universities, expanding their personal networks while building their coaching proficiencies.


Sherpa Coaching is a corporation dedicated to growth. We used more subcontractors in 2016 than we had in the three previous years. Coaches who remain certified and build additional skills by learning different Sherpa programs are first in line when new client opportunities arise.


As our franchise grows, so does the value of our brand. People who know about coaching know the Sherpa name. We’re the only coaching process endorsed by multiple universities, which brings great benefit to coaches associated with Sherpa. You’ll be associated with the best research in the field. You’ll also be the very first to hear about new developments in SelfWare: applied neuroscience and business behavior.

As coaches, we know about business behavior. To become better coaches, we must develop our skills. The Sherpa process provides a priceless– and practical – toolbox. Get on board today. Work with the authors of the process as they share their experience in applying the tools with top-level clients all the way up to the Fortune Top 20.
