A Holistic Coach Training Program

The word ‘Coacharya’ combines the best characteristics of a Coach, one who inspires a client to maximize potential holistically, with that of the Acharya, a Sanskrit word for a mentor guide who walks with the client without judgment. Our coach training programs reflect our name.

We want to walk alongside you for the entirety of your career as a coach. We provide various levels of executive coach training as well as continuing coach education to support all steps in your coaching journey.

We recognize the many sides of a coaching education. Our coach training programs are a blend of Western methodologies and Eastern philosophies to ensure a balanced participant experience. Our content focuses on mastery level competencies from the beginning to ensure you get the most value for the time you invest with us.

Finally, we’re mindful of the business of coaching. That is why our training addresses the practicalities of entrepreneurship for independent coaches, and supports you with monthly webinars that address challenges you face along the way.

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.”

Coach Training Programs

Coacharya’s Coach Training Programs are a comprehensive and affordable way to complete your requirements towards coaching certification. They are appropriate for people who want to become business or executive coaches as well as life or personal coaches.

In addition to classroom participation, learners spend two hours of self-study per module, and turn in assignments for trainer and peer review. Participants also engage in peer coaching for practice and in coaching clients, as required by credentialing bodies. You can join us from the start of your coach training or for a bridge program towards your next coaching credential.
