Coaching for Development (CfD) is a six-month programme in the study and application of Integral Coaching. It is an intensive coach training and apprenticeship programme designed for participants to emerge as coach practitioners, able to see the world through someone else’s eyes, and at the same time able to skillfully coach them to improved performance in any aspect of their lives. This course is ideal for those who are interested in evoking excellence in others while also being open to receiving coaching themselves so they too can bring forward excellence in their own endeavours.
CfD is taught in English, the course materials are in English, and assignments are required to be submitted in English. We do, however, have a faculty team that can support those whose home language is French.
Participants meet as a group for three modules. Learning takes place in many different ways:
Group sessions — flow and philosophy of coaching; exploration of coaching models.
· Individually — reflections, assignments, your own development as a coach.
· In small groups called learning pods — supported by your mentor coach, a Professional Coaching Course (PCC) graduate.
· In pairs with a self-chosen buddy coach from the class.
· The balance of work between modules is self-paced, including readings, written assignments, and three detailed case-study applications of this coaching method with clients.
· Each delegate receives written feedback on each of their assignments – a rich source of learning and reflection.
· There is on-going support provided by the Centre for Coaching faculty over the six months.
