Certified Coach Program

Distinguish yourself from all the ones calling themselves a coach
but who are still consulting or convincing others they are the expert!

WHY would you certify internal coaches?

A certification program has the following advantages:

  • Participants take the program more serious, so their learning effects are more sustainable
  • Everyone can call themselves a coach. Certified coaches have proven they can go the extra mile and are aligned with an international benchmark of professional coaching
  • Internal trainers and HR gains credibility with an international certificate
  • HR coaches can save a lot of money replacing external coaches
  • Senior managers leading the change process towards a coaching culture, benefit from a head start as certified coach
  • Training programs need to be followed up by professional coaching to enhance application and sustainable learning.

WHO can participate to the Certified Coach Program?

The main requirement to participant to the Certified Coach Program is your motivation and willingess to become the best version of yourself as coach.  During an intake or a information evening you can check out whether this program would fit you.

Besides the training moments, there will be self-reflection, peer groups, and practise, practise, practise. You will be asked to start coaching peers or volunteers, to really learn from practise.

The program will provide you with knowledge, insights, tools and many learning experiences. Coaching is learned by doing, by falling without shame and standing up again with proud, trying again and persisting. 

During the program you might be challenged to review old habits which served you well in other contexts, such as convincing others that you are right and that you know best.

We will invite you to go through a personal change process, expanding your leadership and communication styles. The essential role of a coach is being a ‘change agent’.  By consciously experiencing the change process yourself, you will become a better coach.

 You will be supported by coach-the-coach sessions, supervisions led by very experienced master certified coaches and by many constructive feedback moments for you to grow into your best version of yourself as a coach.
