Coaching Model

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.  So, we ask them to answer the question - how would you like to coach?  And, then provide the tools, guidance and learning needed for them to create their own coaching model. One that will speak to future clients and employers about who they are as a coach and their own unique methodology.

Begin Your Coach Development Plan

In our experience the coaches who PLAN  are the coaches who succeed. And, you should do this before you begin your coach training, to be sure the path and training you follow is aligned with your end goals.  We know this from our 15 years training coaches from all over the world. That's why we now include this process in our core curriculum.
