The Certification in Coaching for Business Leaders is designed for business and other organizational leaders. To participate, you must be in a full-time role with a company, non-profit organization, educational institution, or government. You must currently oversee direct reports.
The program targets leaders who are or wish to be culture influencers; if you are a leader who cares about and can influence growing people on your teams or across your organization, you’ll be an excellent fit.
Although we have had inquiries from executive coaches and we feel grateful for the work those individuals do in the world, there are other programs that are better for coaches.
The six-month certification program is $15,000 plus travel for two in-person sessions in Boulder.
The success of Certification in Coaching for Business Leaders depends on the quality and engagement of the cohort. As such, we require a short application for consideration. Please complete this 10-minute survey today, and we will be in touch.
