Coaching is a collaborative relationship between a trained coach and a client, whether the client is an individual or a team. Coaches make a visible, meaningful impact on the lives of others. They help their clients break through personal barriers and achieve progress and growth far beyond what they could accomplish on their own. Through active listening, powerful questions and direct observation, coaches guide clients through a process of self-discovery and support them in achieving their goals, improving their well-being and succeeding professionally and personally.
If you've thought of becoming a coach, or if you're already a coach and want to become certified by the International Coaching Federation (ICF), our Coaching programs can help. We offer two great programs, both ICF-accredited. The Coaching for Life and Work Certificate Program is a five-month intensive program with a pathway to the Associate Certified Coach (ACC) credential and later the Professional Certified Coach (PCC) credential. Team Coaching for High-Value Results provides targeted, advanced training to coach practitioners in the specialized discipline of team coaching and aligns to the ICF’s new Advanced Accreditation in Team Coaching (AATC).
