DEVELOP a personal coaching "point-of-view" informed by current coaching models, research, "best practices" and a deepened self awareness

Participants interested in establishing and enhancing their career as a professional, executive coach will begin the certification process with this 5-day residential coaching intensive. Participants will have an opportunity to ground their professional practice in the historical, philosophical, and ethical foundations of coaching, combined with leading-edge best practices, current research and emerging trends.

The Intensive provides extensive practice applying foundational coaching skills across a variety of case-based situations that will enhance your capabilities as a coach and establish a clear value proposition for clients.

This is achieved by: (1) establishing a clear coaching "point-of-view" (i.e., guiding principles of effective coaching); (2) exploring strategies and tactics for establishing credibility and building trust with clients; (3) learning the core coaching competencies; and (4) receiving feedback from program instructors and peers during practice sessions designed to demonstrate coaching knowledge and skills. Participants will also examine creative marketing tools for coaches.

Individuals interested in enhancing their coaching competencies are invited to take this Intensive as an "open-enrollment," professional development seminar, without committing to completing the Columbia Coaching Certification Program.

Please note that we generally cap enrollment for the External Coach Intensive and start a wait list after reaching that cap. We have a maximum of 30 participants per cohort.

Note: We have reached capacity for the Spring 2016 ECI and have started a waitlist. To be added to the wait list, please go to the notice on our home page to be added to the google doc for the wait list.
