This highly experiential 30-hour program is designed for individual coaches, organizational consultants and internal HR practitioners seeking to develop a team coaching practice. Now more than ever, organizations are looking at how to motivate and manage their teams in a period of change and uncertainty. This program has been run successfully around the world, and is being delivered virtually for Coacharya’s global community. It has also been adapted to train internal Systemic Team Coaches for one of the “Big Four” international professional services firms.

The Systemic Team Coaching Certificate doubles as the foundation/first module for the 5-course Diploma program.

The emphasis in the Certificate is on covering the theoretical basics of Systemic Team Coaching.
