Welcome to a new kind of leadership training.


We're known for transformational leadership training programs that challenge the way our participants show up in the world. You won't find typical self-help book platitudes here at Engaging Breakthroughs.  Side effects of our programs may include significant career growth, making more money, and deeper personal relationships.


Craig and Monttein have practiced leadership training for decades. Because of this, professionals seek them out for transformational support they can't get anywhere else. Whether you want to show up more authentically at work, grow an effective team, or ditch the corporate world, Engaging Breakthroughs has the expertise to help you reach your goals.


Our highly experienced coaches know how to guide learners through difficult situations. They carry a variety of tools to break through barriers that keep teams and individuals from achieving what they want. Engaging Breakthroughs is highly adaptable, offering online leadership training as well as robust corporate workshops delivered on-site at your location.
