The coaching institute is for individuals interested in entering the field of executive coaching, as well as executives seeking to become better managers and leaders.
This two week coaching workshop will offer intensive study in mastery of the Active Communicating® coaching methodology. This methodology is based on our belief that the coach is a catalyst, and all good managers must have excellent coaching skills.
The program consists of over 90 contact hours of group classes, individual tutorials and coaching and weekly practicum that will lead to a certificate of completion awarded from the Center for Executive Education at the University of California, Berkeley.
The primary focus of the executive coach training is for participants to learn the skill set that is necessary to coach a variety of business professionals as well as work groups.
