WHAT IS PROFESSIONAL COACHING?
Coaching is fundamentally about facilitating change that will lead to desired results– facilitating movement from a current state to a more desirable state in either a personal or professional setting. At Adler we stress experiential, hands-on, applied learning.
We believe you must use the skills to own them. From day one of the Foundations course, and throughout the certificate program, you will coach under the supervision of faculty, so that you will personify the coaching paradigm, and DO as well as KNOW coaching. From the outset of the program, participants are expected to coach and be coached, bringing their own real life issues to the learning process. In addition to learning how to coach, participants engage in a parallel personal learning journey.
Adler's coursework is mainly face-to-face, with teleclasses, online workshops and distance learning as supplements. We feel that nothing can replace personal contact as an aid to learning. Our Practicum is offered both in person and via a distance learning format to accommodate different needs.
Our faculty of top professional coaches has drawn on their experiences with coaching and coach training to develop a sound foundation for this fast growing profession, as well as to provide up-to-date hands-on techniques. Because of this, we have taken our place as a leader in the field of coach training.
