Do you want to take your coaching to the next level?
Train with an outstanding coaching team led by Elizabeth Crosse MCC, build your professional coaching career, work towards your coaching credential with the internationally recognised International Coach Federation (ICF) and have the option of picking up the ILM Level 7 qualification along the way.
After successfully completing Maximum Coaching’s Certified Coach Training Programme, and completing the necessary post-training coaching hours, you will be able to apply for and achieve the ICF Associate Certified Coach (ACC) qualification.
The focus of our programme is on active learning, involving group discussion, skills practise and practical exercises, and is split over:
• 4 separate modules
• 2 group coach mentoring sessions
• 3 one-to-one coach mentoring sessions and
• a minimum of 12 hours coaching with at least two volunteer clients
Our expert coaching programme gives you 60 hours of coach-specific training, 10 hours of coach mentoring, and a recommendation of a minimum of 12 hours coaching with at least two volunteer clients.
At the end of your training you will discover ‘who you are as a coach’ and have the confidence to develop your practice in a way that aligns with your style, skills and experience.
MODULE 1 – INTRODUCTION TO COACHING (2 days; face-to-face)
Establishing the coaching relationship and introducing a range of coaching models, skills and techniques that encompass the 11 ICF Core Competencies.
MODULE 2 – BUILDING COACHING SKILLS (2 days; virtual, via Zoom)
Building coaching competence, challenging with integrity and using your intuition. Looking in more detail at ethics, standards and boundaries and their impact on the coach, client and coaching relationship.
MODULE 3 – ADVANCED COACHING SKILLS – (2 days; virtual, via Zoom)
This focuses on transformational coaching: how we support clients in creating sustainable change. It’s about working with their inner world, dealing with emotions, and encouraging them to challenge their assumptions, beliefs and behaviours in order to engage in a different way with current and future challenges. We will also explore ‘who you are as a coach’ as you gain greater clarity on your unique approach and start to integrate your learning. There will also be the opportunity to build your coaching toolkit by exploring some creative coaching techniques.
MODULE 4 – COACHING REVIEW AND CONSOLIDATION – (2 days; face-to-face)
The first day of this module will be an opportunity to think about the impact of your values and needs on how you coach. We will also review and consolidate your learning in preparation for the skills benchmarking against the ICF Core Competencies. The second day will be a skills benchmarking exercise. It will be an opportunity to demonstrate evidence of the ICF Core Competencies against the ACC criteria in a live coaching session. Your feedback report from this day will provide the foundation for a development plan to support your ongoing learning journey.
