Overview and Schedule

Course Work

Each lesson also includes at least five hours of homework preparation (reading, listening to web audio lectures, learning partner coaching practice). Many hours of web audio recordings are provided to support the live classes, including demonstration coaching sessions exposing you to a wide variety of client scenarios and coach styles. We also provide an archive of recorded lessons from previous classes, as they each have something special to offer. Successful completion of the coach training program requires participation in all 18 teleclasses (verified by online lesson feedback surveys), practice, and study of the Coaching Psychology Manual. While we make the manual available online, we recommend that you purchase the manual as an invaluable reference.

Lesson Topics

  • Defining the Role of the Coach
  • Growth-Promoting Relationships 
  • Thriving: Being Skills and Coaching Presence

Additionally, there are four sessions of facilitated coaching practice where participants will practice with peers, guided to apply the skills and behaviors learned in previous lessons. This format allows for deeper exploration of the content through discussion and applied practice in every lesson.

Course Schedule
