Front-end Coaching Intensive

Front-end Coaching Intensive (FECI or VFECI)

Due to the impact of COVID-19 in the metro-New York City region of the United States, The Columbia Coaching Program (3CP) has been unable to offer our standard 1-week residential front-end coaching intensives (i.e., External Coaching Intensive - ECI & Internal Coaching Intensive) since the Spring cycle of 2020. As a result, we offered our newly designed Virtual Front-end Coaching Intensive by combining ECI & ICI into a single 1-week, high-impact digital learning experience for the Fall 2020, Spring 2021, and Fall 2021 as a virtual program. 


Plan for Fall 2021 Front-end Coaching Intensive Cohort

While Columbia University has decided to have students return to campus this fall in a controlled setting following strict covid protocols (i.e. vaccination requirements and limiting external visitors, etc.), at the advice of the Columbia Medical Center, the Columbia Coaching Certification Program (3CP) has opted to remain virtual for the fall Front-End Coaching Intensive. We will continue to monitor the situation to determine if the back-end Advanced Coaching Intensive (ACI) program will be in-person, virtual, or blended. Thank you for your patience.


Note: As noted above, the format for the Fall 2021 Front-end Coaching Intensive will be virtual. We are at capacity for the Fall 2021 V-FECI program and have started a waitlist. To join the wait list, fill out the following google doc form ( If and when a seat in the program opens up, we will reach out to those on the wait list when it reaches your position on the waitlist. We ask that for the front-end intensive, you only complete Part 1 of the application and do not submit. Thank you for your patience.

If you are interested in the Spring 2022 Front-end Coaching Intensive and would like to be notified of when regstration for that program opens. Please fill out the following google doc form ( However, please note that filling out the google doc itself does not secure your seat. What secures your seat in a program is a deposit when registration opens. We hope this is clear.

Key Benefits


Virtual FECI Sample Schedule

LEARN how to analyze feedback to co-create the client's developmental story (strengths and limitations) while connecting the data to an action plan.
APPLY multiple data collection and analysis techniques to guide coaching interventions.
INTEGRATE organizational behavior concepts with coaching practices at the individual, group and organizational levels.
ENHANCE your strategic and focused conversation skills.
EXPLORE cutting edge approaches for leveraging coaching capabilities throughout the organization (group and peer coaching).
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.
