During this coaching program participants will fully understand the essence of professional coaching and the mindset and skills required to be an effective coach. They will learn to create a partnership with a client and be thinking partners to empower them in their growth and development towards increased balance, fulfilment, and performance. They will experience how coaching can unlock people’s potential at work as well as in many contexts in our lives.
The program is focused on understanding the updated ICF core competencies that are the foundations of effective coaching. The course is extremely interactive and based on activities, discussions and real life examples. Participants will practice every competency that will be taught in class and experience its impact from different angles – coach, client and observer – during coaching dojos.
The program is structured in three modules. Each of them is articulated in 10 x 2 hrs sessions for a total of 64 hours:
- 7 sessions on core competencies – 1 hr of theory and 1 hr of practice
- 1 session on a recording review
- 2 sessions on coaching practice with written feedback.
Each session will be run in Zoom and we will leverage Miro as our collaboration tool. All sessions will be recorded.
