The Concept and Philosophy Behind the Program

For all levels of coach, Envision's 3-Module ACSTH Foundational Coach Training Program runs over a period of three months and is designed to build a strong foundation for coaching. It is, essentially, the first three modules of our ACTP Program.

This training provides 70 hours of Approved Coach Specific Training Hours (ACSTH) as defined by the International Coach Federation (ICF). Those training hours may be used as part of an ICF ACC credential application. We focus on the ICF framework of coaching competencies, Envision's coaching methodologies, basic human system change, Gestalt models of coaching, and some Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP). The idea is to create coaches who have strong presence and flexibility.

Our Intended Participants

People interested in developing or increasing their professional level of competence in business, life or executive coaching. These can be new coaches, coaches working internal to corporations, external coaches or consultants looking to enhance their effectiveness or shift their career direction, as well as experienced coaches who want to further expand their skill levels, become up to date on ICF's core coaching competencies, garner new tools, and/or earn CCE's and ACSTH's for credential application or renewal.

Take A Look At What's In Store

Module 1

Foundation for Powerful Coaching

• Introducing Envision's Models for Coaching
• Role Definition and Effective Contracting
• The Craft of Coaching Mastery
• Building the Coaching Relationship
• Crafting Powerful Questions
• Direct Communication Skills

This challenging training module introduces Envision's time proven coaching model as well as ICF's most current coaching competency requirements for certification. You will be grounded in the concepts of coaching as a practice, as well as powerful coaching skills as a whole. We focus on establishing a strong framework within the overall coaching relationship through a clarification of role parameters and contracting definitions. You are challenged to bring yourself to your coaching in a more effective way, and to more fully utilize powerful questions and direct communications in your engagements with clients. This is learned through Envision's coaching methodologies, the ICF coaching competencies, systems theory, change processes, as well as Gestalt coaching methodologies. Through an interactive process we also provide direct observation and skills assessments to begin a powerful learning and development plan for each participant.

Module 3

Coaching Systems for Integration

• Power Dynamics
• Working Virtually with Individuals and Groups
• Creating Coaching Engagements
• Accountability and Feedback Systems
• Establishing Engagement Plans
• IntraPersonal Conflict Integration

This intermediate module highlights the power dynamics in all interactions and how to manage them in the coaching engagement. This module will help clarify what it means to have client engagements and how to navigate them. We go over accountability and feedback systems and the structures you can use to illuminate and reinforce the relationship between action and consequence. You will also learn how to coach clients effectively and more powerfully when working virtually. Additionally, we teach you to help your client resolve intrapersonal (inner) conflict through working with rather than against the system, creating an outcome congruent with the whole person.

Module 2

Deepening Your Practice as a Coach

• Building Agreement
• The Quest of Your Questions
• Multiple Perspectives
• Direct Communication
• Working with Multiple Modalities
• Powerful Statements

In this robust 3-day module we step into deeper understanding of coaching skills. You will learn to build a foundation of coaching agreement with your clients, become more aware of how the intent behind your questions affects the engagement, and gain skills that help your client explore new perspectives and resolve inner conflict. Using Envision's models, Gestalt techniques, Neuro-Linguistics (NLP) and advanced coaching competencies, you will also become far more powerful in direct communication with your clients. You will also learn to identify what modality your client tends to experience the world through, allowing you to better create rapport and awareness with them. You are then empowered to assist them via their own unique strategies, working with the client’s strengths. You will also learn how to make powerufl statements as a means to communicate directly and resourcefully with your clients.

Our policies on payment of tuition and fees.

Full payment for each module is required upon registration and must be received prior to the day the 
module begins. All payments will be in US dollars.

All ACSTH participants are asked to commit to the full length of the training. An ICF ACC credential application in the ACSTH pathway requires at least 60 hours of training time. Our program provides 70 hours in total, which means there is some room for absence. However, for the sake of your learning and skill level, we strongly urge full attendance. We understand that illness and emergencies happen. If you do have to miss hours because of illness or emergency, you will be encouraged to read the materials from those missed class hours and you may also seek out a ‘study buddy’ from class to share their learnings with you from the missed time. This may help you feel more 'caught up' but will not make up for the number of hours you are absent. Further, we do not allow students to attend later modules containing the sessions missed unless the entire module is paid for again. There is no makeup. You are entirely responsible for any time you miss and you will be awarded hours of completion based on hours attended calculated by us in compliance with our agreement with the International Coach Federation. Thank you for understanding this important policy.
