In order to ensure that our network of Trusted Advisors acquires and maintains world-class coaching skills and techniques, we offer the Coaching Academy.
There are many Coaches in the business world today; however, most Coaches do not have a proven process to produce measurable and meaningful results for clients or a method for generating referrals for their business. Trusted Advisors client-centered approach is a critically important distinction setting us apart from many other coaching models and programs.
Working with clients for an extended period makes the Trusted Advisors process an exceptional foundation for individual coaching. In order to ensure that our network of Trusted Advisors acquire and maintain world-class coaching skills and techniques, we offer the Coaching Academy. Here are the details regarding the Trusted Advisors Coaching Academy and the commitment necessary to achieve certification.
The Academy is designed to take place over an eight-week period of time via videoconference. (The eight-week design does not include actual graduation.) With the exception of the first week, there are two calls per week. The first call each week focuses on the new learning modules for that week. The second call each week will provide practice opportunities and case studies. Please allow 1.5 hours for each call. As part of the graduation requirement, participants can miss no more than one group call, and no more than one breakout call.
