Course Area 3: Coaching Labs

Coaching Labs are hands on coaching sessions designed to give students feedback on their coaching in the context of a specific ICF competency. Using a “Stop the Clock” technique, your coach trainer will interrupt the coaching session whenever they observe an ICF Competency in practice.

Course Area 4: Peer Coaching

One of the most important components of coach training is applying theory into practice. With peer coaching you have the chance to try out your new coaching skills and techniques with your peers, and at the same time, accrue hours towards an ACC or PCC credential. Many graduates continue their peer coaching networks long after they graduate.

Our Point Of Difference...

We'll help you identify your ideal client, and then create a coaching model that represents your passion, beliefs, values and purpose.

One of the elements of our training that we are most proud of is that we teach our students to create their own coaching model.  Often a coaching school will teach or promote a coaching model that is  based on the personal philosophy, passion or coaching model of the founder. So if the founder was a NLP coach then it's most likely the coaching model they teach has a heavy NLP foundation.  But, at ICA we stay away from cookie cutter coaching models. Instead, as educators with expertise in adult learning principles, we teach the frameworks and theories that have influenced coaching such as cognitive behavioral therapy, appreciative inquiry, NLP, emotional intelligence and mindfulness. We look the background, how it intersects with coaching and how it can be blended with coaching
