Essential Training

Mastering the Fundamentals of Coaching

At the Center for Coaching Excellence, you can build a coach training experience to suit your individual career goals—whether you are a business professional and looking to apply new communication skills within your current role, or you want to become a full- or part-time coach.

If pursuing the International Coach Federation (ICF) designation as an Associate Certified Coach (ACC) is on your horizon, Essential Training is your first building block toward certification. Complete information is found on the CCE Certification page or you can request a free consultation.

 

 

 

Training Overview

Our mentor coach training approach limits classes to ten participants and allows us to invest in every person through individualized guidance in their personal and professional development, coaching style, and coaching mastery.

 

Training Approach

We enhance coach training with a combination of in-person and virtual classroom training. Essential Training workshops provide an invaluable experience of observation, coaching demonstrations, group interaction, collaborative peer exercises, and dialogue that increases comprehension, application, and synthesis. This enriches the virtual classroom interaction and learning experience that follows the workshop.

During Essential Training, you will have the opportunity to engage in weekly peer coaching, independent reading, and gain experience in coaching a client.

Professional Training

Becoming a Master

Following successful completion of Essential Training and Associate Training, Professional Training is the third building block to your coaching development. This course concentrates on master-level coaching skills. 

If pursuing the International Coach Federation (ICF) designation as a Profession Certified Coach (PCC), Professional Training is the next step toward certification. Complete information is found on the CCE Certification page or you can request a free consultation.


Training Approach

Professional Training provides coaching observation, coaching demonstrations, group interaction, and dialogue that strengthens comprehension, application, and synthesis. You will continue to expand your knowledge, understanding, and application of master level coaching skills in an advanced coaching practicum.

The course explores how to work with mindsets. Without understanding mindset, the influences that create mindsets, and how to apply coaching skills to mindsets, we miss important opportunities to zero in on what may be barriers to personal and professional development. This course will give you the skills to facilitate a conversation that creates an environment for the client to observe and recognize the need for a mindset change.
