How Are We Different?

Our Method

HG Life Coaching is based on the “Handel Method,” which was developed over the last 15 years by HG Co-founder and Chairman, Lauren Zander. The method is the foundation for not only our life coaching work, but also for the courses we teach at MIT, NYU, Rutgers and Stanford Business Schools, and for the work we do within large companies in the Executive Coaching Division. The method is revolutionary yet easy to understand, methodical yet infinitely customizable. Most importantly of all, it has proven to be highly effective.


Our Life Coaches

Look at our coach bios and you will find a Masters in Psychology, past and current business owners and other impressive credentials. But what makes them great Life Coaches is their ongoing training in the Handel Method, their natural intelligence and intuition and their capability to walk their talk. Our coaches are rigorously trained for an average of two years and to keep our coaches sharp, training continues on an ongoing basis. In addition to our Senior and Staff Life Coaches, we have a roster of CIT’s (coaches in training) who are in training to be the next HG Life Coaches.


Our Commitment

The Handel Group was born of an authentic and ambitious desire to change the world in a very positive way. It is a spiritual endeavor for us. Yes, it is a business. Yes, we are trying to make a living from our business. However, we are succeeding and HG continues to grow because of the services we provide and the heart behind them. We fully respect and love our clients because at HG, we all work on ourselves on a consistent basis. We think that those who are willing to dig deep and look at themselves honestly are the most courageous people in the world, not to mention, people we’d want to hang with. In a word, we are looking to make personal development cool. We think it is.
