The program has a powerful training structure that ensures the transfer of skills from the classroom to the workplace. The course is organized in block weekend meetings spread over a 10 month period, a total of 21 days altogether.
This is an in-person, very practical and highly interactive program. Participants study the theory and techniques of coaching. They practice coaching skills in the monthly workshops. They are matched with experienced mentor coaches. They start their own coaching practice with outside clients early in the program. Their work with clients is supervised by the program faculty.
These layered elements of training, theory, skills practice, an outside coaching practice, supervision of that practice, and support from a mentor coach ensure the progressive development of coaching knowledge and skill.
