Bev Lutz ICF membership provides incredible professional networking opportunities, professional and personal growth, and opportunities to explore my strengths as I volunteer in service of my profession.  My chapter really helps me stay current with coaching, thought leadership, and learn-n-earn (CEU’s) from professional development events.  But it’s the supportive coach-friends and collaborators who have made membership for me priceless. //

How do we maintain a coaching presence when our world has been turned upside down and shaken side-to-side? We are not the persons we were before this global shift and we do not yet recognize who we will become. We feel stuck in a perpetual state of in-between; a place filled with promises of tomorrow that somehow feels increasingly claustrophobic with each passing day. We are born seekers of meaning; trying to make sense of the past and present as we position ourselves toward the future. 

People are looking to their coaches for guidance as they try to move forward... but what can coaches look to? What coaches need now is their very own map that adjusts to the altering speed of change and the shifting matters of each day. In this innovative session we look to Music as that map. Music speaks to all of us in a universal language. It is a resource that all humans innately gravitate toward and respond to. Music gets to the heart of what is needed to build us up beyond what we had before to what we are called to be for the future. It enhances our connections, communication and motivation, when all else falls away, and opens our understanding for new ways to consider complexity and create solutions.

This session is for coaches who are ready to engage imaginative methods for meeting the challenges of enhancing human capital in the midst of constant change. 


If you are seeking resources to increase your awareness and attentiveness to what is needed moment by moment, this session gives you the tools to invite others to fully participate in the process of creating a hum with vitality, strength and long-term success.

-Discover your own story of resilience and its influence on your coaching effectiveness. 

-Explore music as a metaphor for increasing maneuverability within complexity. 

-Translate the universality of musical elements into methods for connecting with clients and increasing well-being markers such as meaning, resilience, engagement and motivation.


Meet: Jennie & Tirzah

Jennie Antolak, president and co-founder of Learning Journeys, and Tirzah Marie Lewis, Director of Creative Development, lead a motley crew of engaging, intelligent, and somewhat funny coaches and coaching trainers representing all areas of business, non-profit, entrepreneurial, and educational arenas. They collectively provide a place where people learn and apply the true essence of coaching.
There are no lessons on skillfully advising, artfully connecting dots, or keenly identifying blind spots for clients. Instead, they teach students how to trust the process of coaching and experience the true strength of the human spirit. In each class, Jennie and Tirzah demonstrate how coaching is the one modality that, if fully embraced, can magnify one’s sense of agency and conviction. In addition, they faithfully teach the coaching competencies that help others reconnect to their inner resources by tuning into intuition instead of listening to experts outside of themselves.   

Jennie possesses a degree in Communications, a Master’s Degree in Organizational Development, a Coach Practitioner and Mastery Level Certification, a Narrative Certification, and is an MCC level certified coach.  

Tirzah obtained her degree in Organizational Communications and holds both a Coach Practitioner and Narrative Certification. In addition, she is ACC credentialed.

While both Jennie and Tirzah value experience and education, many of their less recognized successes are some of their proudest moments. Antolak relishes and shares with anyone who will listen about being crowned champion of the Lafayette Square Noodle Races. And then there is Tirzah’s recent accomplishment-being awarded the Master of Pivoting (with the caveat of: Most likely to lose her “Zoom face” when confounded by a seemingly “simple answer”). Of course, not everyone is as impressed by Tirzah’s latest success, but it doesn’t stop her from sharing either.  Both Jennie and Tirzah are committed to upping their game by never stopping learning, constantly pushing the boundaries, and continuously striving for more. They hope the next time they connect with you, you will be a part of this Learning Journey, and it will be you that has a story you can’t wait to share.
