3-hour CCE program focuses on:

Our promise is that during these 3 hours, you will:

  • Learn what lessor known factors influence and shape equality, inclusion and diversity and how they are unique to each culture.
  • Gain new insight on how to handle "sticky situations" or moments of uncertainty.
  • Learn new ways to assess a client's life events and emotional situations which may require the coach to refer to a therapist (i.e.: depression, anxiety).

CCE Continuing Coach Education - International Coach FederationCoaching - the art of navigating and discovering with your client. (This course also includes mentoring skills)

Are you are looking for a “graduate course” to deepen your listening and coaching skills? We all know how those bad habits can creep back in.

Come join fellow coaches to create a curious and engaged practice group where we will discover and learn together. The learning happens by listening to coaching sessions as if we were the mentor followed by group conversation where we learn from each other. This is a lively and participatory course not a lecture course.

In our coach training we learned just enough to demonstrate the basic skills of coaching. Now it’s time to re-engage with and re-examine the core competencies and markers from a new perspective - a perspective that can only be acquired through working with clients.


  • Learn the intent of each core competency and the role the markers play in “actioning” that intent.
  • Listen for the structure of a session as well as the tone of the client and the coach.
  • Listen from a new awareness and perspective, increasing your ability to observe and interact with your own and your client’s emotions.
  • Provide direct, relevant and care-full feedforward to support the client’s / student coach’s ambitions and desired outcomes.
