Meet Dr. Moira Hanna
Coaching Hive Founder, CEO, and NBC-HWC
I’ll never forget the day that I earned my first health coaching certificate.
I was sitting at the dining room table with my husband. We took our 1-year-old son to stay with my parents while I took my health coaching certification exam. My husband was sitting next to me for moral support. I wanted this so badly and had studied for it, but I was still nervous.
Honestly, I was a sweaty mess. Defending my dissertation was a breeze compared to what I was feeling at this moment. Thank goodness I found out immediately that I had passed the exam.
I made more progress in a few weeks than I had made in months.
With my vision in mind, I was able to be intentional in the classes I took to further my skills, I knew who to connect with for mentoring and got hooked into a peer community.
It was through this process that the seed for the Coaching Hive Blueprint was born. I took everything that I learned from building my own health coaching business and became a patient observer of hundreds of coaches as an instructor at the Dr. Sears Wellness Institute. I watched and learned what was working and where the gaps were as coaches built their coaching careers.
I tied this experience and observation in with nearly 15 years of experience as a college professor and mentor. For the past 6 years I have had the opportunity to guide coaches as they learn, grow, and hone their skills and build a coaching practice.
Today, I’m focused on helping coaches take the next step AFTER their coach training program. I’m walking alongside coaches as they build their career. Whether that is a career within an organization, as a coach with a side business, or a full-time entrepreneur, all coaches deserve to have a mentor and peers with whom to walk this journey.
The question today is, “Are you ready to take the next step and invest in a career that you have spent countless hours working toward?” If the answer is yes, I’d like to invite you to join the Coaching Hive.
About the Coaching Hive
The Coaching Hive began to serve one main purpose.
Help the world have more active, committed health coaches.
I know, you may be thinking, how does the Coaching Hive help with that if you don’t train health coaches.
That is a good question. There are many fantastic health coach training programs out there graduating thousands of health coaches a year. They have the training down to a science and it is rooted in science. Why mess with something that is working?
Instead, the Coaching Hive looks to bridge the gap between training and thriving business. There is a disconnect that happens when health coaches leave their training program and start seeking to build their business, especially in a world that is driven by social media.
Coaches need a mindful vision, inspiring guidance, and progress-driven learning to make their dream of becoming an active health become their reality.
When the Coaching Hive mentors and guides health coaches to this reality, the world will have more active, committed health coaches to serve and guide our next generation. Our purpose becomes reality and those around us will benefit from the wisdom, training, and compassion that health coaches bring to the table.
Our company strives to serve and guide with an eye toward giving back in communities around the world.
When the Coaching Hive first started, one thing that has always driven us is to give back. We are a heart-centered company that looks at service as a responsibility and a privilege. As we are still in the early years of the business, our giving may seem small, a thank you note here, 10 books there, but they are given from the heart and with a focus to the future where we are able to do more and give more.
At the Coaching Hive, we honor each person’s uniqueness. You are never asked to be someone you aren’t. In fact, you should celebrate who you are. In this case, Dr. Moira loves going down slides at the park with her son and husband.
Life is too short to do anything but enjoy life. That doesn’t mean that each day is easy or fun, but overall the equation should point to enjoyment. This is yet another reason why we guide and mentor coaches during their journey so that they can also enjoy life.
