Program structure

Globally, our programs are offered virtually, via Zoom. Classes meet weekly, for 3 hours at a time, on a set day and time.

Learners in India can attend face-to-face programs in select cities. Please contact us for more details or see our upcoming schedule.

50% of session time is spent on interactive discussion of concepts and coaching applications. This happens through trainer instruction, question and answers, discussion on books and videos, coaching role-plays relating to live issues, and discussion of cases. The other half of each session is spent on observed/mentored coaching in pairs and teams (dyads/triads/fishbowl formats).

Some of the Observed Coaching sessions are conducted via live teleclass mode to familiarize students with telephonic/audio coaching. This prepares learners to be effective when working with clients across all media and timezones.
