Integral Coach™ Training Method
“I've rarely experienced a 'training' program that so effectively combines rigorous methodology with generous heart. I now have a living compendium of precise, relevant practices.”
“Working with Joanne and Laura has been transformational at many levels of my life. Through their Integral Coaching® training, I have come to understand what “being human” means.”
“Integral Coaching Canada provides what we believe is the most complete and comprehensive coaching program available. ”
Integral Coaching® Training
By exploring, experiencing, and rigorously practicing Integral Coaching®, our students develop skills, capabilities and ways of being that enable them to immediately and effectively coach in their respective fields of work. Whether participants have never coached or been coached, or are experienced long-time coaching veterans, profound skills are built, enhanced, and sustained.
Our approach to teaching Integral Coaching® is unique and powerful. We model the coaching relationship in every aspect of the curriculum so that participants learn by what we do and how we are with each of them as human beings versus just learning about coaching by what we teach. Live coaching occurs in all of our classes to model and 'make real' the method we teach. We observe participants coach and provide direct feedback on their performance of core coaching competencies and the Integral Coaching® method. The ICF core competencies are embedded in every day of our extensive curriculum design and Integral Theory and Practice is incorporated into all of our course architecture. We have articulated a step-by-step process for Integral Coaching® that demystifies this discipline and breaks it down into components that can be learned and integrated. Through this process and practice, our certified coaches develop skills that are sustainable and embodied. The courses are rigorous while also providing room for the trial and error necessary for learning. Beginner's Mind is encouraged!
Our world-renowned training program, the ICF accredited Integral Coaching® Certification Program (Module 1 and Module 2), takes participants on intensive journeys into the realm of human development. We deeply respect participants who authentically engage in their personal and professional development towards becoming a certified Integral Coach™. We value the skills and backgrounds each person uniquely brings. We firmly believe in the power of rigorous coaching coupled with compassionate understanding. Students in our programs receive coaching (from each other and faculty members) so that they can be on the 'receiving end' of this powerful method while they also practice Integral Coaching® with each other and volunteer clients over time. They progressively develop core coaching competencies as they practice, are monitored, assessed and supported over the duration of the program. Initially, students cognitively understand the adult change principles, coaching method and Integral lenses used in this approach; through practice and customized development, their understanding becomes fully embodied as they develop "self-as-instrument."
Our Training Courses meticulously build excellent coaching skills, human development knowledge, Integral understanding, personal self-awareness and efficacy, and skillful compassion. We enable coaches to integrate this method and fully embody Integral Coaching® as they build their own successful coaching businesses or other ventures within organizations or entrepreneurial endeavours.
Our Mastery Workshops support our cadre of professional certified Integral Coaches™ in their ongoing developmental journey. We are dedicated to supporting our coaches in continuing to become ever more effective, compassionate, and exemplary Integral Coaching® practitioners in the venues through which they contribute.
