- Success Stories
“Our organization has contracted coaching services with Todd for many years with stellar results. Unsolicited comments praising his coaching skills and heart for leaders’ personal growth continue to roll in. What makes his coaching work? His emotional intelligence (EQ) is remarkable — he understands and values people. Todd has the uncanny ability to provide perspective for the leader and skillfully creates conversations for open, reflective explorations. He demonstrates the coaching attribute that experts applaud: he serves as a ‘midwife for the narrow, messy emergence into a larger world.’ Todd St. Germain remains one of the most respected and sought-after coaches in my experience.”

“Todd essentially gathers leaders with potential, teaches them how to coach, and in doing so, releases better leaders.
It begins with his Real Talk Training (R.T.T.). This training is an extensive one-day seminar filled with laughter, teaching, role playing and reflection. I have personally taken this course and found it to be essential in the life of leaders I want near me. Todd is an expert question asker, thus, he teaches every person on my leadership team to ask great questions. This not only raises the emotional intelligence of the leader’s life, but also makes them an asset when ministering to another person. Those who complete The R.T.T. are benefited, and often take the next step with Todd to experience another level.
His next step is A.C.T. training, a certified life coaching school. A.C.T. is a fifteen-week mentorship program where people are taught, and then put in real-time coaching environments both for themselves, and for those on their team. I have not taken this class as of yet, but I have had many leaders in my church who have, and let me tell you, I’ve been pleased.
After experiencing the empowerment of coaching, I made a commitment to develop not just pastors at our church, but coaches. I’ve used Todd in this capacity since we met. Each of my staff have been through Todd’s Real Talk Training. Those interested go on to the next level, and I encourage them to do so. I really believe in Todd’s strategy, and being a pastor for most of his life, he understands the needs at the local church level.
I highly recommend the Potential Coach, Todd St. Germain.”
Lead Pastor, The Rock Church, Monroe WA.
“I cannot express enough how beneficial coaching has been for me in my future plans. How do I start? What do I need? How can I express what I believe God has called me to do, to others?
Todd has helped me answer these questions and many more. His coaching helped me uncover things that I did not think about.
If you are starting a minor or major project, you need a coach. Allow me to recommend one for you, Todd St Germain! He’s not just a coach, but a friend. Todd takes interest in the person he coaches.”
Church Planter, Chesapeake VA
“I met Todd St. Germain through attending church. Todd was the first mentoring relationship that I intentionally sought out because I felt like God was leading me to him for some specific reason. Now, after many years of friendship, I look back and am grateful that I was obedient to God’s leading. Todd has served as a mentor and coach to me for the past several years, and I would consider his impact on my spiritual growth and development as a leader invaluable. Todd has a way of seeing things in me, that at the time, I cannot see in myself. More than that Todd has an incredible gift of empowering and cultivating the “best qualities” in others. Todd’s impact on my leadership and spiritual growth will last a lifetime, and encourages me to strive make a similar impression on the lives of others.”

“Todd has a tremendous listening ear to hear you and the Lord. He has the capability to see connections in the things you convey to him that brings a new perspective and depth of meaning to your life. With Todd’s help, I’ve seen new things about my life and myself with clarity, and I’ve been able to recognize the fingerprints of God in my life that I may have overlooked by myself. I’ve been encouraged, affirmed, and challenged during my coaching sessions with Todd. Todd is a high quality coach that understands people, and I highly recommend him.”
Associate Pastor, River of Life Church, Hattiesburg Mississippi
“When I first signed up for The Real Talk Training (R.T.T.) with Pastor Todd, I was about to step foot into a new work environment and was excited about the new relationships I would be developing. What I didn’t know is that the tools that Pastor Todd would teach me would not only make me into a better listener, but also to inspire me to dig deeper into a different level of men’s ministry. God has consistently brought people into my life that have allowed me to use the tools and confidence to use my testimony and speak words of love, encouragement, and victory into people’s lives on a daily basis.
God has used me and the awesome tools from R.T.T. to form new and great relationships at my workplace, church, and out in the community. R.T.T. has definitely pushed my boundaries, but also allowed me to blossom further and take deeper steps in ministry. I am excited for where God is taking me and the men I connect with daily.”

“Had the opportunity to attend a Real Talk Training (R.T.T.) hosted by The Rock Church several months ago and facilitated by Todd St.Germain. As a bivocational pastor in our church, I found the one day event highly informative, introspective and immersive in approach and application. On a personal level, the tools garnered from this event have proven valuable in working one-on-one with the team members we lead within the children’s ministry. We have also benefited from these tools implementing them with those we are walking along side in their journey with Christ.
An added benefit, while not unexpected, has been the cross discipline application of these same tools within my business relationships through work. As project manager for a multi-million dollar commercial construction firm located in Seattle, WA, the ability to better gage and understand the motivations and objectives of others through tactical dialogue strategies learned at The R.T.T., has proven to both strengthen and enhance these relationships and resulting business developments.
Would highly recommend this course for any individual or team desiring improved strategic communication, both internally and externally. Todd’s demeanor coupled with his intuitive approach to the subject material is well suited and adaptable to both the boardroom and classroom.”

“I have enjoyed taking the A.C.T. and R.T.T. program. It has strengthened my thought process to be able to listen more directly and really hear what the other person is trying to work through. I use it a lot at work. My co-workers say I bring a calming affect to our work environment. I believe it is because they feel heard and respected. These tools have saturated every part of my life from home, work place, and yes, even the grocery store. Everyone you meet has a story, it is an adventure to see how God uses a simple skill of listening and asking questions to reveal truth.”
