The Foundation Course: Certificate Program in Coaching
course is the prerequisite course for students new or even those in the
early intermediate stages of their coaching and consulting careers. This
is the course which started all the excitement about our program, and
which students continue to get excited about in learning coaching.
The course involves hands on experience coaching and being coached by
fellow students and the instructor on the intake process, setting goals,
establishing the relationship, administering assessment tools and coaching
with them. The objective is to give students the ability to collect data
deeply so they can become the worlds leading expert on both their
clients and their client's organization.All students get hands on training
in using the following assessment tools: MBTI, Firo-B, Strong & Skills
Assessment, Emotional Competency Inventory (ECI), and one of the following:
GLOF (Global Leader of the Future), LOF (Leader of the Future), PEA (Professional
Effectiveness Assessment) or Leader of the New Millennium. Note: although
students receive training on all these assessment tools, they will need
to contact the vendors of the instruments if they wish to become certified
in using them.
Classes are delivered on the telephone in one hour conference calls, twice
a week for 32 hours over 16 weeks. There is also a 2-day (in person) weekend
that usually takes place towards the end of the course. For those unable
to attend the weekend, we offer four individual coaching sessions from
an ECA-approved coach as an alternative.
