About Us


In 1999, Transformational Leadership Coaching International was formed for the express purpose of bringing the best of coach training into organizations and their key personnel. After a research sabbatical on the future of leadership and executive training in these realms, Dr. Joseph Umidi, Professor of Ministry at Regent University, formed a team to design and test a system that would accelerate leadership development utilizing the unique values and methods of leadership coaching.

Our coach training system became the most popular graduate-level course in the history of Regent University, involving faculty, administrators, and students from several disciplines including business, leadership, education, communication, law, and ministry.

We are now a non-profit 501 (C) 3 organization, Transformational Leadership Resources, doing business as Lifeforming Leadership Coaching, and our global connections and impact continue to expand today.
