OVERVIEW OF OUR PROGRAMS
Our programs seek to bring a state of balance and well-being to the coaching profession, for coach and coachee, based on the fundamental belief that global transformation depends on our understanding and application of ‘Whole Brain thinking’, emotional intelligence, and the integration of values through action.
PHILOSOPHY OR COACHING APPROACH
Our programs follow a holistic approach that seeks to raise the awareness of coaches and coachees about the connection between body, mind, emotions and spirit, and their effect on life. Our methodology is based on an ontological philosophy, directed towards reflection and introspection to generate new mental models, beliefs and behaviors that are aligned to achieving the goals set up in coaching. In addition, our methodology follows a biological/physiological approach, integrating knowledge about how the brain functions and its relevance to the coaching process.
In summary, we use an integral and ontological approach to highlight the importance of going beyond the external work of goal-setting and implementing action plans, and to deepen the inner processes that allow coachees to know themselves better, and to use this information to move forward and achieve their goals.
The Program follows a Blended methodology (in person and online), which includes four (4) in-person modules of 30 hours each (full three-day weekends) with intervals of 2 or 3 months between each meeting. Total work hours for the entire training program are 226. The total approved hours by ICF is 136, which refers to the training requirement for PCC credentialing.
