Coach Training for Leaders
Do you want to learn coaching skills so that you can use this proven, effective approach to empowering individuals, relationships, teams, and organizations? Our credentialing path programs equip you with transformational coaching skills and culminate in attainment of your coach credentials. The six-month training program involves 60 hours of experiential face-to-face learning, using quality materials and led by excellent, experienced coaches and trainers. The other major component of the training is mentor coaching, which helps new coaches hone their coaching skills.
Coaching is a powerful relationship where trained coaches assist individuals and organizations in designing their future by clarifying and focusing on their unique gifts and calling, and creating goals and strategies to achieve this future while improving their flow and ease in all of their lives. Coaching both develops the whole person/team and accomplishes the results they are aiming to achieve. In short, coaching helps people become more fully alive. Experience shows that coaching students not only learn to help others in their development, but have huge, transformational learning themselves.
Each three-day training event is designed to provide basic coaching skills and a strong understanding of skills, resources, techniques to support leadership teams in local congregations in moving toward effective ministry. It is a fast-paced, highly interactive training that includes both theory and practice. Participants leave with a set of tools for launching this ministry.
Coach Training for Leaders is accredited by the International Coaching Federation (ICF) for 155 hours of coach-specific education/training. All participants receive coach-specific training hours and a certificate of training at the completion of each training event. Upon completion of 60+ participant contact hours, 5 observed coaching sessions with written feedback, 10 hours of mentor coaching, and a final performance evaluation at the ACC level, participants are issued a Level 1 certificate documenting graduation. (Partial completion credit given for each module, as completed).
Coach Training for Leaders also hosts a monthly Community Call which provides additional support for CTL students and graduates to help them develop their coaching business and make connections with other coaches. The Community Call happens on the second Wednesday of each month, from 1:00-2:00 pm (Eastern).
