We welcome participants from all over the world because the entire program is online and by video conference. The Coaching Essentials distance learning course flows seamlessly into Coaching for Transformation-Distance Learning certification training and Coaching Essentials tuition is applied toward the Coaching for Transformation certification program.

This learning community attracts:

  • social justice leaders, community organizers and activists
  • executives, managers, and leaders from all sectors
  • social workers, therapists, and counselors
  • organization development consultants and human resources professionals
  • educators, trainers and facilitators

Regardless of your field, your coaching skills will help people create a better future. You can use this program to become a professional coach or use your coaching skills to enhance your career.

This program is led by coach trainers with a commitment to acknowledging the importance of addressing power, privilege, equity, and oppression, in order to:

  • support organizational transformation
  • partner with and supporting leaders and teams
  • honor diversity and inclusion
  • build awareness of group dynamics, including the impact of power and privilege, and historical and systemic oppression

As a coach, you will increase awareness of discriminatory stereotypes such as racism, colorism, sexism, heterosexism, classism, ableism, and others, and the systems that have maintained these oppressions. This awareness is necessary for becoming a masterful coach and helping clients access their inner wisdom and be wholly seen

Our faculty members have an unwavering commitment to your growth as a coach and their own continuous learning. Our dynamic international team is committed to every participant becoming an excellent coach. To that end, you can count on our faculty to:

  • Co-create a safe, courageous learning environment where you can take risks
  • Give you straightforward, rigorous feedback
  • Challenge you to step into your power as a coach
  • Make room for every voice and keep group learning our first priority
  • Take advantage of learning opportunities that emerge live in the moment
