TCI's service not congruent with their teaching

TCI over promises and under delivers! Follow up calls and cards with chocolates enclosed are frequently delivered during the initial sign up period. This then stops quite abruptly. Much of the course content is plagiarised. Complete tests can be found freely on the...

Dont sign up. Its just good marketing but besides that you will loose a lot of money. You will learn some things but you can find the same content with some other coaching body for much much cheaper. And for any extra training it costs thousands again .

NO STAR RATING

DO NOT SIGN UP WITH TCI THIS PLACE IS A CROCK POT AND A HALF! When I questioned their integrity I was told it was MY sceptical mindset that needed to change and I was the reason for not enjoying the experience - I was gaslight from the moment I started at TCI! Brainwashed cult leaders capitalising off vulnerable people who actually want to help others. Cookie cutter coaching methods copied, copied, copied. By far the worst company Ive ever dealt with! A literal joke! These guys should not be allowed to practice!

User's recommendation: DO NOT SIGN UP.

I did the certificate. I was at the time looking for something to fulfill me. A lot of very skilled up selling from the start. They did not like to be questioned on anything and put you down if you dd

I had a lot of hope. Scared by the prices and upselling but felt compelled. A high focus on what money you could make. When questioned about people who needed help but couldnt afford told well that is thete problem. A fellow student with cancer was told it was her fault she got it. A lot of shallow jargon. Not empathetic at all. All money!! I felt worthless

User's recommendation: Dont sign up.

Beware of these people - trying to get a refund is exhausting and demeaning.

Beware of these people - trying to get a legitimate refund, which I'm fully entitled to, has been exhausting and demeaning. Taken months. Utterly disgusted. They appear to care when you're signing up, but the refund process tells you otherwise. People who have left will tell you it is a horrible place to work for this very reason. I've been given the run around, 7 hand-offs so far - for months. Disappointed and disgusted. So far not seeing any integrity.

User's recommendation: Beware of these people - do not hand over your money!

It gets worse...they finally agreed and said they'd pay, took my bank details, nothing came in, an excuse, repeated promises and acting as if it had gone wrong or gone in but went missing. Seriously they were just continually yanking my chain.

They will never know the stress this caused at one of the most challenging times of my life. These people are pure evil. Handed over to 3rd party collectors. No one should get away with this.

Its abusive and especially sticks in the throat since they continually bleat about values and integrity. It is disgusting!!

Long overdue

I signed up with the coaching institute about 7 years ago. It is a Ponsi scheme cult. They are effective, unscrupulous marketers. They believe their own lies. Entirely distasteful experience. I lost over $10k on their rubbish materials. Was a good lesson and inoculation.

User's recommendation: Steer clear: ponsi scheme cult.

I attended a hyped up presentation. I was persuaded by an over zealous sales person who offered me a free trial of a product. The product was never delivered . There was no invoice , no confirmation, email , no link to where it could be accessed. In fact zero...

Positive Feedback

I have followed Sharon Pearson when she first began was 2005 I was a workaholic then,so I never dedicated fully but was still online and sitting on summits. I worked and lived a life I took as fulfilling and happy. Partly yes I was, so I worked lived and did the TCI here and there . So bringing us to today.August 2021 And I am now BETTER for Sharon Pearson and TCI I was very suicidal after being told I can no longer work. So I set my site on trying to LIVE And it was because OF TCI I amalive

Misleading and manipulative sales of education

Sales consultants pose as providing a free coaching session and then pressure people to purchase their education package with false promises of unrealistic income.

User's recommendation: Do not believe their promises of a high income earning business. The successful coaches they show in the videos are fake.

Is only your PERCEPTION of the call. you can say NO!

I have been following TCI and found I DO NOT do what I do not want too. Including listen to the sales pitches.. I purchase the resources of what is useful and helps me. I Attend the Summits and other Webinars WHEN I WANT too.

I have purchased and have used a lot of these resources, they HAVE HELPED me. And I am grateful. They send a link and you can either go or not AND if you purchased the course then Be diligent in your READING of the Rules & Regulations,, MAYBE research BEFORE HAND I DO...

Try not STRESS yourself,, and things can benefit everyone. TY for letting me post.

Sub standard quality of everything

I was completely overwhelmed and would ring them and it would always get turn around on to me. The website is filled with video content of presentations. Finding anything worthy of learning is like looking for a needle in a haystack. I have lodged a complaint with NSW fair trading. I also believe that this organisation is not of RTO quality. They also charge waaaaaay to much for information freely available.

User's recommendation: DO NOT SIGN UP WITH THIS ORGANISATION.

To help/warn people of cult-like practices

I am not a consumer, but I did work for this company for 3 months. I left due to the toxic work environment that they encourage and FORCE you to be apart of. If you know of the American cult NXIVM, this company uses the exact same structure. Their marketing strategy is to appeal to the consumer who is down on his/her luck, usually exploiting middle-age people of their hard-earned money. The management here is toxic and will not hesitate to ridicule its people. If you have a human reaction to any unfair behaviour, as a student or a worker, they will assume no responsibility as it is that has actively chosen to become disheartened or saddened - therefore normalising the behaviour. They will beat you down and assume superior status to make you feel like nothing. If you are defiant, they will work to break you, causing your confidence to slowly dwindle. style=" Do not be fooled, this place has extreme cult-like practices, I dont want to know what happens deeper within its business model. Dont waste your money, go on a holiday and enjoy seeing the world instead.

User's recommendation: Stay away from this company.

Everything is wrong about this company.

I signed up with the TCI after attending one of there free events. Boiler Room sales tactics caused me at a very vulnerable time in my life to sign up for something that in the end I did not need or want. I lost $4000 plus to these people. All evangelical tactics they use, sure they get alot of disciples. But I now in hindsight realise they do not support their students, they dropped me out of the training. Suddenly no one was contacting me. Do your due diligence and do not sign up with the BS discounted rate BLAH BLAH... PS: They will send you so many emails offering free stuff etc... It will overwhelm you. Look elsewhere.okkL

User's recommendation: look elsewhere or get a good therapist..

I encourage all of you to leave google reviews for TCI (on TCI google ratings). Then others too will get this information and would hopefully not fall into their trap and suffer.Let's support change.
