Program What Graduates are Saying

Coaching for Transformation taught me skills to create a shared sense of ownership in our community. I am seen as a stronger leader and a better person in my work. Coaching is a radical form of de-colonization where people become whole, recognize their uniqueness, and trust their divine knowing about their community needs. This is especially useful when multiple generations have experienced trauma, oppression and subjugation. Coaching for Transformation is the tool for generational healing. —Sophia Kizilbash

The coaching course rejuvenated me. I’ve never had this much impact—I’ve strengthened my intuition and my approach is a return to the old—it feels ancient, sacred, and intuitive. The biggest change in my life is that I feel free and I am not afraid. —Leslie Brown
 

 

Shruti EVENTI’ve attended some dry academic coaching courses in the past, but what instinctively called me to CFT was its edgy feel, and its values of creativity and social justice. The program has been the single most important learning experience I’ve had in over a decade. CFT helped me remember my core values, quirky strengths, and love for community and connection. The program enabled me to trust my intuition and take creative risks, and in turn, it provided me with the tools to help clients do the same. —Jessica Balboni

Coaching for Transformation is an outstanding coach training program that delves into areas generally mentioned but seldom taught. I received formal coach trainings from various schools in the last ten years but this is the first time a program has actually taken me into areas of developing intuition, working with client and coach's vulnerability, allowed coach to experiment with transformative pathways. This program is highly recommended for anyone interested in becoming a highly competent coach, but even more recommended for those who, like me, spent years coaching and are searching for mastery. —Isabelle Min, Transition Catalyst Korea Institute

I help young women in leadership roles step into their power. Shifting from consulting to coaching, my clients are taking ownership in their decisions. The impact of Coaching for Transformation on me personally is magical—the quality of my life and relationships has improved because I’m letting in love and learning. —Dara Silverman




Program 5 Reasons NEW

group coaching rich colorsMentor feedback – Going beyond theory, principles and models, you will coach many people on real issues. You get to work with several mentors, both in small groups and one-on-one. Your mentors help you identify your strengths and give you rigorous feedback to take your coaching to the next level.

Cultural respect – You will explore the dynamics of power and privilege, build capacity to engage across cultures and support awareness of the need for systemic change. Our faculty is committed to the respect and lifelong learning about different cultures and nationalities and shifting the demographics of the coaching profession by making coaching not only more accessible but more welcoming. The ability to coach across differences is vital in today’s world of diverse organizations and nuanced social change initiatives.

Deep, lasting change – Many coaching models just scratch the surface—focusing on short-term impact. In the Coaching for Transformation program, you’ll be diving into uncharted depths to help clients break through limiting beliefs, tap the wisdom of their bodies, identify their emotions and understand their needs. From that grounded, centered place of deep awareness, clients can develop strategies and take actions that honor their values and drive social change.

Supportive learning community – As a student you won’t be stuck on an island with a “how to” manual. In fact, you’ll interact with the same peers for the duration of the course—creating trusting, lasting relationships as you collectively celebrate successes and support each other’s development as coaches.

Business development – What good is it to become a certified coach if you don’t have clients? Coaching for Transformation includes a powerful business development program that helps you start working with clients even before you graduate. You’ll discover your unique gifts and develop marketing messages that reach your specialty niche. With many tools under your belt, you can get your practice up and running quickly.
