Our Coach Training Program offers…

• ICF core competency skill training • A holistic/integral foundation • Energy concepts • Step-by-step coaching guidelines • A personal constitution framework

• Transition and transformation concepts • Time-tested, evidence-informed practices • A companion text that explains philosophy and tools • Coaching practice with faculty feedback

The real power and uniqueness of this time-tested coaching model comes from the multidimensional foundation and methods that invite coaches and their clients to look through multiple windows for exploration and action. This facilitates faster and more authentic change and reduces false starts and wrong turns.

This program invites and teaches you to function from an expanded awareness, which allows for a rich partnership to develop between you and your clients, fostering more joy, health, and success for both of you. Our multidimensional approach is not a hodgepodge of applications, but is based on a succinct, theoretical foundation that gives form to an extensive array of coaching interventions. Sometimes seeing a big picture is overwhelming; however this approach helps organize and connect the pieces. Dr. Linda Bark’s model has applied the concept of Structures of Consciousness from philosopher Jean Gebser in a way that creates a user-friendly, structured yet flexible framework to learn both the “being” and “doing” of coaching.

30-Hour Core Competency

This live teleclass or in-person course  covers time-tested core coaching skills based on evidence-informed practices that are embedded in our holistic/integral foundation. Using Jean Gebser’s Structures of Consciousness as a map, you will journey through the lands of the Mental, the Mythical, the Intuitive, and the Archaic to discover tools that invoke the richness of different ways of being, thinking, and doing for those you coach.

This course strategically utilizes an interactive online platform for basic content allowing you the freedom to work at your own pace before each class. Faculty led class time provides an opportunity for application and deep learning.

As you practice coaching with students and volunteers in and outside of class, your confidence will grow and you will begin your coaching career.

Practicum (15-hours)

This live teleclass  is all about practicing coaching in a carefully created, safe, and nurturing environment. Faculty, all senior coaches, listen in class to students coach each other, to role plays, or to recorded coaching sessions that students bring in from their coaching experience. You will learn how to work with resistive, stuck, and ambivalent clients, along with other client and coaching challenges.

Practice, practice, practice with valuable and meaningful mentoring is the best way that coaches become more confident and learn to become better coaches. During this interactive course, you will enhance your ability to create the living, breathing, art and science of coaching and the interactive conversation that will invite and encourage your client’s growth.
