Curriculum

Delve into a holistic curriculum to help people create a better future. Coaching for Transformation goes beyond theories, principles, and models and works with clients on a deep level. You learn how to coach the whole person: the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual.

You'll have weekly teachings, demonstrations, practice, and discussions that focus on real-life applications. Between sessions, you put the teachings into practice. As you discover your strengths, creativity, and core values, you develop the confidence to coach any client on any issue.

Coaching for Transformation takes place in a supportive learning community where you will discover how to put your clients in the driver’s seat. And that’s only the beginning.

The 5 pathways to alignment support deep transformation:

  1. Exploring Needs and Values – Help your clients become conscious of their underlying needs so that their core values snap into focus. This awareness provides a blueprint for making decisions. When clients become aware of what motivates them, they create energized, values-driven action plans.
  2. Experiencing the Moment – Whether they are facing daunting obstacles or cool opportunities, invite your clients to experience the present moment. As they honor the intuitive wisdom of their bodies, explore their emotions, and embrace resistance, they can connect with their authenticity and life force before moving into action.
  3. Expanding the View – When your clients hold limiting beliefs, you can help them explore and embody a wide range of viewpoints. This playful approach helps clients release disempowering viewpoints and embrace new possibilities – and new ways of being.
  4. Envisioning the Future – Discover new methods of visioning that help your clients awaken. Learn how to open new possibilities by engaging the right brain, visualizing, and creating a more compelling future.
  5. Embracing the Shadow – Explore multiple parts of the psyche and embrace their positive intent. Working with your clients’ inner world inspires them to honor all of who they are—and connect to the deep reservoir of wisdom known as the Self.

  • Skills: The Coaches Palette – Experiment widely to learn the nuances of 23 coaching skills and when to apply them.

  • Culturally Aware Coaching – Deepen your awareness of power, privilege, and culture so that you can easily coach people from any culture or background.

  • Calling out the Power – Learn bold coaching methods to help your clients get unstuck and awaken to their full power. Find out how this requires you to step out of your comfort zone—as you ask your clients to do the same.

  • The Business of Coaching – Identify, design, and launch the coaching practice that is right for you. You’ll learn the nuances of starting a coaching business, marketing, pricing, and attracting clients—so your practice becomes sustainable.

  • Soul and Spirit – Explore the realms of soul and spirit, their relationship to coaching, and help spiritually-oriented clients deepen their connection to those realms. You'll also learn to coach secular clients as you develop your intuition and explore life purpose.

  • Celebration and Completion – Integrate your learning, celebrate your journey and your graduation as a Certified Professional Coach!

What's Unique About CFT in Los Angeles

LA2

 

Coaching for Transformation is the first and only accredited coach training program for the social sector. If you advocate for social justice, lead a nonprofit, organize communities or build movements, this program helps you expand your impact. You’ll learn to empower people to deepen cultural respect and shift their relationship to power and privilege. Through coaching, you’ll address many forms of oppression, including racism, sexism, classism, homophobia, ablism, and more.

Accredited by the International Coach Federation, Coaching for Transformation is built on commitment to the values of social justice and making coaching accessible to less-served communities. This program is led by coach trainers with extensive experience in:

  • addressing the assets and challenges faced by people of different cultures and national origins
  • enhancing leadership by diving into diversity and practicing cultural respect
  • healing internalized oppression in a supportive learning community
  • building the capacity in nonprofit leaders and organizers
  • developing spiritual intimacy for healing and alignment

Leadership that Works is an innovator in the coaching field and a lead partner with the Coaching and Philanthropy Project (CAP) created to assess and advance coaching as a strategy for building effective nonprofit organizations. Utilizing the results from the CAP project, CFT-Los Angeles includes competencies for coaches working in the nonprofit sector and with diverse (race, gender, class, etc.) communities. We actively seek new ways to address the needs of the nonprofit sector and integrate them into our dynamic coach-training curriculum.

5 Reasons to Choose Coaching for Transformation

Maria Michael Leslie Faculty Retreat EVENTMentor 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.
