Program Overview

Our online ICF accredited coach certification program is designed to build a strong foundation for powerful coaching. The focus is on how to coach people across the spectrum, including high-level professionals in complex systems.

The program provides 70 hours of ICF Approved Coach Specific Training Hours (ACSTH) and awards a Certificate of ACSTH. Your certificate can be a stand-alone Coach Certification and you can also use it as part of an ICF ACC credential application.

This course consists of highly interactive live webinar presentations, group applications and coaching exercises, as well as a-synchronous presentation videos, coaching demonstration videos, and assignments.

In the training we focus on the ICF Core Coaching Competencies and how they are integrated and demonstrated in coaching interventions, Envision's time-proven 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 skills, presence and flexibility.

This 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.

This module highlights the power dynamics in all interactions and how to manage them in the coaching engagement. We 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.

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.
