Certificate in Coaching
Become a trained and certified professional practicing coach in a variety of areas including: Executive Coaching, Leadership Coaching, Life Coaching, and many more. This certification is perfect for anyone that desires to expand into the coaching profession, or add coaching credentials to an already existing career.
Coaching is a transformational process where a coach and a client partner together to support the client in attaining goals, facilitating breakthroughs, and reaching their potential. Coaching is successfully used in a wide variety of professions including: teaching, business consulting, personal training, therapy, medical practice, management, and training.
The certificate program includes six in-person weekend courses, five phone sessions in between courses, and interim self-paced experiential exercises. The course-work empowers you to feel confident, find your coaching voice, experience the power of coaching by going through your own process, and gain skills to facilitate breakthroughs. Through this program you learn a diverse array of methods and tools with which to empower yourself and your clients as a professional coach. A required and recommended book list is provided. Assessments and observations are provided throughout the course work; culminating in a written exam at certificate completion (pass/fail grading as an ICF requirement).
By the end of the certificate program you will be eligible to apply for the International Coaching Federation’s (ICF) Associate Coach Certification Application (ACC). For more information about ICF, the coaching field, and certification, visits the ICF website at: www.coachfederation.org.
The pre/co-requisites of this Certificate program include:
- Two hours of coaching, by a certified coach, completed pre-entrance.
- Eight hours of coaching, by a certified coach, completed by Certificate completion (includes 2 hours pre-entrance).
There are six courses in the certificate program – completion of all six courses is necessary to earn the full certificate. Continuing education clock hours are available.
The six courses include:
The Foundations course sets the framework for successful coaching. This course ensures participants meet international ethical guidelines, professional standards and fully understands the framework behind true coaching in full alignment with the International Coaching Federation’s (ICF) standard of competency. The Foundations course gives participants an in-depth experience of establishing coaching agreements, creating trust and safety, as well as the nuts and bolts of designing, planning and aligning new awareness with actions and goals.
Creating Clarity course enhances the core framework set in Foundations and moves each participant into establishing a coaching presence, skillful level three listening, developing powerful questions, translating “hard-to-hear” communication, developing compassionate direct communication skills and the process of firming up the desired outcomes. Compassionate communication and the Enneagram are introduced to further ground participants in effective models for positive self-expression and deeper levels of true self-understanding.
The Self-Mastery course explores the concept that all life mastery first stems from self-mastery. Formulas for self-actualization are explored and expounded upon to give the coach-in-training a first hand understanding of what their own personal and/or professional evolutionary road-map looks like, so that they may better help their client create their own evolutionary roadmap for success. In this course the skills of continuing to cultivate a coaching presence, direct communication, unfolding new levels of awareness, listening for what is not being said and managing progress and accountability are further developed.
The Integrative Development course focuses on human development from a coaching perspective. The integrative theories of Ken Wilber, James Flaherty and the Enneagram Institute are combined to provide a solid platform for personal integration. Participants explore their own path of integration as they learn processes of self-discovery and follow-through. This course carries a holistic emphasis on the whole person (mind, body and Spirit) and the concept of “even development”. Progress tracking and self-assessments are introduced to further facilitate accountability and personal achievement.
Emotional Intelligence is integral to establishing trust and intimacy; being able to listen beneath the words and to develop deeply evocative streams of questioning. This course teaches participants how to address the human domain of emotion from a coaching perspective within themselves and within their client in order to become a catalyst for self-understanding and personal growth. Participants further develop an understanding of mind over matter, emotional mapping and processes of emotional transformation.
Time, Life & Business Management
This course gets to the heart of designing effective actions, planning strategies and goal setting. Topics explored include: the key principles and strategies that streamline action steps, maintaining healthy levels of energy output, and the application of these principles to all aspects of life and/or business success. This course also cultivates an in-depth understanding of how to approach logistical bookkeeping and the business side of running a coaching business.
