Coaching Mastery Training for Professionals

Overview

This training consists of three modules which taken together cover the training and mentoring requirements needed to apply for credentialing at the ACC level with the International Coach Federation. It is aimed at leaders, managers, coaches and other professionals.

The first two modules introduce and develop the core coaching competencies and support participants in applying them in an organisational setting. These are usually taken together as part of the same group but it can be possible to join a later cohort for the second module.

The third module is an intense practicum and mentoring program that deepens participant's skills through practice, observation and feedback - based on the ICF core competencies. This module may be taken following the first two modules or at a later date. It can also be taken on its own by those who have had previous coach training.

Programs are delivered in English with some additional support and translation available depending on the location of the training.

Philosophy

Our overarching philosophy is that everyone has, at their core, a source of wisdom, strength and resourcefulness that when accessed leads to more effective and fulfilling action, results and relationships. When a coach is connected to their own resourceful and authentic self they can empower their clients and colleagues to access their unique experience, wisdom and potential. Coaching clients are then supported to develop greater awareness, learning and responsibility and in turn to positively influence and develop others, including their own teams and organisations.

Thus coaching contributes to learning organisations becoming more effective and better places to work. This results in increased profitability supported by higher levels of staff motivation, loyalty and retention.

And, in the bigger picture, we envisage and contribute to a shared world where people and groups are more connected, supportive and empowered.

General program vision and goals

The aim of the programme is enable participants to coach others to become more connected with their own self resourcefulness, to gain clarity, make better choices and be more effective in their work and in the development and leadership of others.

Participants will also be supported in developing a ‘coach-approach' as part of their leadership, management or other professional work.

An indirect goal of the training is to contribute to healthier and more effective organisations.

Models and approaches used include:
  • The Change model - moving from Reaction to Creation
  • Developing a strong SELF through Sustaining, Empowering, Listening and Friendship
  • The Integral Coaching Model incorporating the ICF Core Competencies
  • Coaching styles of leadership
  • An emphasis on Learning through Practice
  • Coaching Practicums and Mentoring
