This advanced coach training program offers professional development to expand coaching applications from one-to-one into one-to-many clients and environments. Professional presence and influence style are central to being with a collective in an effective way. Understanding how a collection of people work toward a shared purpose is foundational to using that influence to improve and sustain high performance. The program borrows generously from the fields of organizational and leadership development as well as theories about group dynamics, the development arc of teams over time and organizational health and culture.
Development begins with an individual mentor coaching session that tailors a participant’s development focus to fully embody a coaching mindset when coaching in a one-to-many environment, and to align with their unique set of clients. This is followed with an influence predictor inventory to discover what to strengthen in their presence as a coach in order to meet a diverse client base with equity and inclusion. A third session occurs at mid-point to plan application of the program learning with their clients, and to accelerate the integration of the ICF team core competencies and inviteCHANGE generative team coaching mindset, skills and behaviors.
Coach development through live simulation of team coaching translates knowledge into practice with real-time supportive developmental feedback. Exploration and mastermind discussions occur to identify leading practices in establishing and maintaining agreements, sponsor relationship management, team leader coaching, strengthening team cohesion and sovereign, and measurement of team effectiveness over time. Templates and tools such as team sovereignty and team engagement assessment are provided for participant use and personal branding as they may wish.
