Personal Note from Life Coach Mary about Cynthia Loy Darst:
I first met Cynthia Loy Darst at my second weekend of coach training with The Coaches Training Institute. The subject was FULFILLMENT. Cynthia co-lead the course with brilliance, charm and humor. Her unbridled enthusiasm makes learning a joy!! Over the years, every time I see Cynthia at an ICF Conference there is always a smile on her face. And, it was fun to see her up on stage as emcee!! I was delighted to be a part of her breakout session in 2005, when she released her first CD, Celebration, Metaphor and Magic. I love how she's brought so much attention to basking in the win of an accomplishment, before moving on to the "what's next."
This is one of the few coaches who has also been willing to enter the limelight. She was one of 4 finalists to coach the participants on the nationally syndicated NBC daytime series "Starting Over."
Cynthia is not only a Sr. Trainer for CTI, she's a Supervisor and Certification examiner, AND continues to coach and lead her own workshops. I have the utmost respect for this fireball of a woman!
