Note: We also offer a business coach training program and a career coach training program which offers additional content that is approved by the ICF for coach training hours.
Learning goals: The goal of the program is that students are competent in the core coaching competencies for coaching executives, leaders, managers, up-and-coming talent, and business owners on the most pressing challenges that they face as leaders of their organizations, specifically related to engaging employees, communicating, influencing others, leading change, executing for results, setting standards, improving performance, and creating high-performance cultures.
Coaching philosophy: Our philosophy is eclectic, and draws from cognitive psychology, best practices in business, behavioral sciences, behavioral economics, and communication and influence theory. Our program is practical in nature, focused on the key issues that leaders face rather than on pushing a particular fad of the month onto coaching clients. We combine the core competencies of coaching as developed by the ICF with an emphasis on practical results as required by demanding clients in the marketplace. We know from experience that most executives and managers will not tolerate the way that the majority of coaches perform, and we aim to bridge the gap between what coaching can achieve, and what demanding clients expect. Therefore, we teach a process of coaching focused on getting measurable results for clients, and we offer coaching frameworks that are focused on helping clients navigate the most pressing problems that they face – in their language and in ways that are efficient and effective from their point of view.
Lead Instructors: Andrew Neitlich, Founder and Director of the Center for Executive Coaching, teaches the majority of the content. Sheri Boone, MCC, leads the ICF mentor coaching. Other instructors may also provide instruction; See the “About Us” page of our website for the lead instructors’ biographies and biographies of our other instructors.
Intended participants: Our participants tend to have a record of achievement in their careers and/or academia. We have assessed a sample of our participants and they tend to be high scorers in terms of their verbal aptitude. We train both internal and external coaches.
Requirements: Prior to joining we would like to review your bio or LinkedIn profile and speak by phone to confirm a fit with your goals and interest.
Policy on payment: We offer a discount for up front payment and we offer installment payments. Certification and use of our proprietary content is contingent on payment in full.
Policy on withdrawal and refund: We want our members to be committed and serious before they register for our program. At the same time, once you join our program, you are considered to be a member for life and there is no deadline to complete our program.
