Transformational Coaching Program
The seventh generation of coaches will start their training in September 2018 in Europe, and we are excited to be doing the eighth generation in Australia in March 2019.
The program will be conducted on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia (60 min drive from Brisbane).
What is transformational coaching?
Transformational coaching involves a wholistic approach, which puts the whole person of the client at its core. Transformational coaches go beyond helping clients shift their perspectives and thereby discover different approaches to achieve their goals.
A Transformational Coach has an understanding of adult development and aim to support their clients in growing “vertically” (increasing their maturity and the complexity of their thinking and acting in the world) as well as “horizontally” (finding new solutions and actionable strategies for accomplishing specific objectives).
A skilled coach helps others to solve their own problems and improve their own performance.
In addition to that, a skilled transformational coach supports the client in developing their consciousness and growing into wisdom.
Who is the program for?
There are many different reasons people choose this program, and many different ways people apply it. Some are seeking personal development, or a step towards becoming a professional coach, others are seeking to enhance performance in their team or organisation. This program is particularly designed for senior leaders who believe that coaching is a means of transforming their teams and organisations and aspire to use these skills at a professional level in the companies they work for. We are seeking participants have both the maturity and the determination to take the knowledge they receive further and become change agents in the world around them.
What is the program about?
The mission of the program is to prepare exceptional coaches, who will become capable of facilitating profound transformation for the organisations they serve or people they will work with. The facilitators are International Coach Federation accredited coaches who believe that a true coach is one who can offer others the priceless gift of being “undissappointable” and make it their mission to prepare participants in the program to become just that.
It is our belief that one cannot instill change if one has not undergone change themselves. This is why the program will place great emphasis on self-awareness and our instructors will provide individual coaching to each participant, in addition to all the feed-forward and mentoring on their coaching skills. This will ensure that our future coaches have had, first and foremost, a transformative experience as a coachee.
Built in accordance with the guidelines and competencies of the International Coach Federation, and approved by ICF at ACSTH level, this program has a unique structure, revolving around three pillars: Mind, Heart and Spirit. It will bring together a unique blend of concepts from neuroscience, psychology and transpersonal coaching to offer participants a comprehensive view of what coaching can be.
This is a challenging, fascinating journey through the complexity of human transformation. At the end of the program, each participant will have identified and formulated their unique coaching approach and will be supported to set it into practice.
The program unfolds over the course of 6 months, consisting of seven, 2-day modules. These are held on Friday and Saturday. We know people can have prior commitments during the program, so exact dates for each intake are set individually with each group of participants once the admission process is over.
Because of the exceptional amount of one on one coaching, mentoring and feedback included in the program (130 hours of face to face training and mentoring and over 160 hours of study overall), we aim to keep the groups small – a maximum of 12 participants. Entry into the program is subject to an admission process consisting of a detailed discussion with the facilitators to determine the intention and motivation of potential participants to enter this learning journey and make sure we find the right fit with the rest of the group and with the mission and vision of this program. Admissions are done on a rolling basis, and will be closed once the program is full. For this reason, please advise your interest as soon as possible. Payment terms and refund conditions are discussed individually with each participant and set into a legal contract to be signed upon admission.
