Become an Agent of Change

Our leaders are ready to assist those that desire interactive coaching.  By definition “coaching” is an agreement you make with someone you want to learn from. You may request a leader or we will match one for you from our leaders bios below.

The School of Influence team of leaders have sat under the tutelage of Dr. Myles Munroe and Trista Sue Kragh in Naples, Florida. They have been trained in time-tested principles and life coaching.  There is a cost associated with interactive mentorship:
Half-hour $30
Hourly $50
6 Half-hour Sessions $150
6 Hourly Sessions $250

All sessions take place via Skype or Zoom. You must have an internet connection in order to participate. If you don’t have access to an internet connection, or the skype program, just let us know when you complete the Coaching Request form. We will contact you and make accomodations.

Sheila was raised by a group of nuns and her grandmother. Both of her biological parents were absent during her early years. During these years she was always questioning herself, “who am I?” When she arrived to New York she did not speak any English. Sheila was taught many languages, except English, which caused many obstacles for her. She dropped out of college and married at a young age and had three wonderful sons. After years of searching and exploring, her family settled in Naples, Florida, which is where the search finally came to an end. She discovered “Who Sheila was” which fueled her passion for being an advocate for the youth. She is therefore deeply committed to impact the youth ‘s curiosity in order for them to be who they were predestined to be.
