Coach Training

 The Center views coaching as defined by the International Coach Federation (ICF) as a "partnering with others in a thought provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize  their personal and professional growth."

The course content is geared towards training coaches to actualize that mission.

The Center uses an original approach to the coaching conversation:


The 5 C's of Coaching: 
Connect. C
ontract. Clarify. Create. Commit.

Module I delves into the 5 C's. Module II dives deep into the 11 Core Competencies of Coaching developed by the ICF as well as the Code of Ethics. Module III affords the professional coach with plenty of tools that a master coach can use.

In addition, there are 15 hours of learning the basics of Positive Psychology and Emotional Intelligence that serve as a background to Module III and the first two modules as well.
