Event Description:

Coaching for Transformation (CFT) is a professional certification program with 90 in-person and 50 online class hours, 10 mentor hours, 40 practice coaching hours, business and marketing preparation, access to an online learning community, weekly online discussions, and oral and written assessments. You also work directly with a CFT certified coach of your choice for 6 hours (not included in the program cost).

This unique offering at Omega Institute is open to all who identify as women. The certification course recognizes and celebrates women as catalysts for transforming themselves, their communities, and their world. While many coaching models simply focus on taking action, the CFT process helps women break through limiting beliefs, become aware of the wisdom in their bodies, identify their emotions, and understand underlying needs. From this grounded, centered place of deep awareness, women may then use their inner resourcefulness to choose actions that honor their values and aligns with deep transformation.

CFT begins with a weeklong intensive at Omega, where you start your professional training, get inspired, meet like-minded people, share meals together, and more—all while enjoying evening events, hiking trails, and other rejuvenating amenities in an intimate natural setting.

After your initial week of training (June 16-21), you stay connected with online teleclasses (Tuesdays – June 25, 2019 through March 31, 2020), discussions, and assignments, plus three additional weekends on campus: August 9-11, September 20-22, and October 25-27. Graduation date (online session) is Tuesday March 31, 2020.

CFT is an International Coach Federation Accredited Coach Training Program.

Who Should Attend:
CFT is for women serious about doing life-changing work and those who want to make a difference in the world. You can use coaching to enhance your existing career or practice, or launch a business as a transformational coach.

While coaching skills are a natural extension of certain professions, such as therapy, management, or consulting, our students come from varied backgrounds—social justice, business, nonprofits, health care, education, ministry, law, and more.

Overall Approach
The learning process is experiential and includes instruction, demonstrations, practice, feedback, and discussions. The teleclasses review and expand the topics. There is a series on creating your coaching business. Mentoring provides small group and individual support in learning the skills and approach. Peer coaching, working with clients, and your own CFT coach provides practice to integrate of the method.
