Program What Graduates are Saying

What I like about the course is first and foremost the joint commitment of Essence and Leadership that Works. Then comes the rigour to sharpen the edge of participants to become a coach. A world class programme with rich content and fully customized to the participants needs. Close your eyes and go for it. —Vinita Saxena

The dimensions which have contributed to my learning are the structure, rigor of the sessions, content/frameworks, especially the Transformational Leadership embedded with NVC and the resources—material, technology and people. It is an intense experiential learning—working as individuals, pairs and groups. The instructors are excellent—knowledgable, sharing and enabling learning in the most sincere and dedicated manner. —Ravi Srinivasan


Altaf in circle of 4

One of the best things about the course is that to be a coach, you go through the practice coaching as well as the practice of being coached. You also self-coach as the skills become a part of you. This more than anything else convinced me of the quality of coaches CFT creates. You can actually see the process come alive and work so deeply in your own life! It allows me the contentment of knowing that as a coach I would really be contributing to the life of anybody I work with on their journey towards living a life they love. —Mira Shah

I love the balance of spontaneity and planning, structure and creativity. I have always felt very lovingly held and nurtured by the CFT community and its trainers and also challenged to go beyond my comfort zone. Another thing I really appreciate is that CFT not only teaches about the heart of coaching but also the business of coaching. This program is such a sweet balance between opposites. —Ruchika Shukla

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

Belma Gonzalez and Vikram BhattMentor 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.
