Our coach training programs are delivered in English both in-person and virtually in United States time zones. We’ve found that the combination of these two training experiences will not only strengthen your skill development but also serve to motivate you personally and professionally. In addition, they offer you the flexibility to and convenience to create a comfortable and engaging environment best suited to your learning style.

  • In-Person Training. We’ve learned through experience that adult learners need to have both face-to-face training experiences and personal time to process what they’ve learned on their own.   What we’ve done is sandwiched the face-to-face experience with virtual training to create a powerfully engaging training opportunity unlike any other. Begin and end motivated, excited and ready to launch your coaching career.
  • Weekly Webinars.   You will register online for 2 hours per week for 5 consecutive weeks to join your mastermind via webinar or teleconference. ICF Certified instructor lead live coaching calls are offered at a regular meeting time each week during a time of the day most convenient to our participants. Most classes start two weeks following the end of your first in-person session. Classes are scheduled during a weekday evening, most starting at 7:00 pm ending at 8:30 pm Eastern Standard Time.
  • Weekly Homework.   In addition to reading the course materials, participants are expected to complete weekly fieldwork to fully implement and integrate learning.  Also, you can expect e-mail tips from faculty and classmates in between weekly sessions.
  • Comprehensive Collaboration.   We’ve created a Mastermind environment to strongly encourage our coaches to develop a strong community of like-minded people all developing their coaching skills just like you!  This will support all of your coaching endeavors now and into the future.

The 73-hour HR Coach Certification Program was designed to help you establish yourself as a coach in your organization.  This means you will participate in an intensive period of training where your skills are developed and tested to ensure you are able to walk away fully capable and confident in your role as an HR coach. Some of our students have said that they had to first “unlearn” some things about what they thought about coaching.

We have carefully designed and tested this program to ensure we are delivering on our promise to provide you with solid high-level coaching exposure, training, and development. You will not find another program like the one you are about to experience.

In addition to the Orientation Webinar pre-requisite, we’ve carefully designed the following three segments for this program:

This includes an introduction to the differences between coaching and mentoring, ICF core competencies, and how coaching is best applied in the work environment. Finally, in this segment, participants will examine their own coaching styles with help from the MBTI assessment, the elements of a great coaching session and how to work with internal customers (employees/staff). Topics addressed include:

  • Professional Ethics in Coaching

In this segment you will learn and practice effective methods for establishing a coaching contract with employees, asking powerful questions, expanding employee perspective, moving through obstacles, designing actions, managing progress and holding employees accountable. You’ll walk away being a better listener, improving your credibility, and strengthening your communication skills. This segment is both rigorous and fulfilling. Topics addressed include:

Through our program, you will have access to a broad network of other HR coaches and to an abundant list of supplemental coaching resources.

The cost of our program is inclusive of all required books and materials. Plus, mentor coaching requirement is met through our program. Keep in mind that there are some things the cost of this program will not cover:

  • Long distance phone charges: price will vary
  • Device or service to record your coaching sessions: price will vary
  • Travel expenses to/from the in-person training location
  • Lunch is on your own for our on-site training – though we will provide continental breakfast and snacks
  • Parking expenses for our in-person training

This pricing strategy is pretty customary and you should find it easy to make any needed adjustments. If you decide to join the webinars through the webinar platform we use, there will be no additional long-distance charges.

Payment Policy

You will have several ways to pay for your experience. You may do so in full by credit card or you may make payment arrangements and pay in 2 or 3 equal payments. We do not retain any credit card information. If you have chosen to pay for your tuition via payment plan, you will be prompted monthly through email communication of your need to make your next payment. Your enrollment in a course is based on the receipt of funds for both the deposit and balance due prior to the start of class. If we do not receive payment in full prior to the start of class, we reserve the right to take any of the following actions:

  • Withdraw you from the training program with monies paid to date applicable to a future training program
  • Assess a monthly late fee

All course enrollments are subject to availability.  Transfers to other Institute programs will not be granted and there are no withdrawals allowed after the close of day 1 of the training.

If we are assessed insufficient fund fees, you will be charged $45 processing fee for each occurrence and may be asked to submit a different form of payment. If we do not hear from you within 48 hours of our notification of your insufficient funds, your requested space in the course(s) may be released.

Withdrawal and Refunds

We understand that sometimes plans change. Because our training is quite intensive, we have created limited-size training programs and your registration reserves your space in the class. Therefore, cancellation of your registration may prevent others from registering because a spot is being held in good faith for you. If you cancel 30 days prior to the start of the event, you will receive a full refund less a $200 administrative cancellation fee. Cancellations that are made less than 30 days before the start of a program will not be refunded but may be transferred to another person with written approval by the authorizing individual or organization. You may also wish to freeze your payment for the next scheduled training or apply the payment towards other programs or services. If you decide to freeze your payment, for the next scheduled training for up to 1 year from the date of the originally scheduled training.

Your lead instructor for your in-person training experiences will be President and Founder, Pamela J. Green.
