Accelerated Coach Training Program

A Systematic, Effective Method to Develop Coaches and Leaders with Character and Competence

Unlock Sustainable Change Through the ACT Program:

  • Define the Coaching Paradigm
  • Develop the Heart of a Lifeforming Coach
  • Learn to Listen in Partnership and Ask More Powerful Questions
  • Develop Healthy Accountability in Authentic Relationships
  • Learn Two Models for Coaching Conversations
  • Gain a Coaching Approach to Change and Growth
  • Setup and Build a Coaching Relationship with Feedback and Supervision

The ACT Program is an in-depth, 15 week program designed for those who desire to use competencies either as a professional coach or professionally in their current role. It employs a combination of two two-day workshops, eight group sessions, eight personal coaching sessions with a peer coach and/or coach trainer, as well as working with a client, for a thoroughly experiential coach training process which also creates personal transformation in the lives of the trainees.

 ACT training uses a live virtual format. You will work with a Trainer, a cohort peer, online resources and personal study with exercises. Trainees do not need to travel, you only need to have access to a computer and long distance calling.

Your training experience prepares you to replicate sustainable personal change with clients. Individuals' lives are enhanced through Lifeforming coaching values and International Coach Federation (ICF) core competencies. Organizational culture shifts when the leaders of an organization experience personal change through Lifeforming coach training and practice these values and competencies within the organization.

Upon successful completion of the ACT 10.0 you will be a Lifeforming Growth Coach, and you will have completed enough Approved Coach Specific Training Hours (ACSTH) needed to apply for your ACC Credential through the International Coach Federation (ICF) and/or to become an ICF Member. You will also be qualified to present the Lifeforming Real Talk Seminar. There are no prerequisites for taking this course. The course is currently being offered in English. Please contact us if you are interested in another language.
