General program vision and goals

Our program offers a blend of coaching theory and practical exercises to help you develop a strong foundation that will allow you to build your coaching practice with courage and confidence. Our low teacher/student ratio ensures that you get timely, detailed and precise feedback during coaching practice sessions (triads). The teachers are also experienced coaches and will share from their practical experience.

Coaching skills are important in building strong teams and essential in times of change to calm anxieties and maintain employee engagement. Integrating these skills in your networks or organization will help to reduce stress and employee turnover as well as increase employee satisfaction and overall performance.

Coaching as a Career

As a coach, you can set your own hours, work from home or an office and choose who you work with. You can even choose your own hourly rate. It is a career with flexibility and challenge. A career that you can feel good about because you are helping others develop self-awareness and create more meaningful and fulfilling lives.

If you decide to become a full-time coach, you can continue to earn money in your current job as you transition to becoming a coach, or you can choose to remain in your current career with the added benefit of having coaching skills to help you navigate your organization or networks with more grace.
