The Level 2 Coaching training is part 2 of 3 in our Coaching Accreditation, takes you beyond the Level 1 skills and tools and teaches you how to create a true coaching dialogue. In turn, this allows you to “listen for what is not said”, and will help your clients make meaning of any situation.

Duration: 8 weeks (part-time) (three full days workshop – virtual delivery)

Certification: Certified Organisational Coach, Level 2 (Coaching Theory to Practice 2)

Accredited coach training program

Who is the Level 2 Coaching training for…

Level 2 coaching courses are open to all graduates of Level 1 Coach Training. We recommend you also have approximately 25 hours of coaching practice between Levels One and Two. Levels 1, 2 and 3 combined make up our ICF Accredited Coaching Accreditation (ACTP), however Levels 1 and 2 also stand alone as fully rounded and rigorous coach training programs.

 

Course Content

The course comprises:   

– Preparation readings online, from three weeks prior to the workshop

– A three day intensive coaching skills workshop including lunches and materials

– Three follow-on co-coaching sessions (required for certification)

– Additional learning activities online

– A written Reflective Learning Task (to be written and submitted within a month from date of workshop)

– 41.5 Student Contact Learning Hours

– Participation in the IECL’s Professional Development Network (first year membership included in course fee)

 

Outcomes

Research shows that in the “helping professions” (including coaching) the relationship that the practitioner develops is key to the success of the intervention. In this program we focus on the importance of the coach’s “state” and their ability to develop the coaching relationship.   At the end of Level 2 Coaching training you will have:

– Developed additional coaching skills to build rapport and trust in the coaching relationship

– Developed and demonstrated empathetic and deep listening, in order to “listen between the lines” and surface what’s below

– Developed and demonstrated mindful presence, enabling greater self-awareness

– Understood the importance of mindful presence in support of better coaching outcomes

– Developed an understanding of how people make sense and how this plays out, to enrich the coaching dialogue

– Expanded understanding of a strengths-based approach to the coaching dialogue

– Learned about powerful questions; what they are and how to use them in your coaching

– New ways to apply strengths-based approaches in the coaching encounter

– Developed strategies for managing stressful stories and situations in coaching to manage multiple perspectives

– Practiced coaching, received feedback and experienced being coached.

 The Level 2 coaching course teaches you techniques and approaches that will help build stronger and more trusting relationships with your counterparts and, therefore, deliver better coaching results. Level Two training will add to your coaching repertoire and assist your counterparts to change their old behaviours by being more self-aware, with an expanded perspective and access to deeper insights.

 

Application and Pre-Work

Prior to commencement of Level 2 Coaching training, you are required to:

– Engage in preparatory work online, to learn coaching philosophy

– Have completed Level 1 Organisational Coaching Certification

– Have completed approximately 25 hours of coaching since Level One.

 

Certification

Successful completion of all Level 2 Coaching requirements leads to organisational coaching certification at that level.  Once you are certified at Level Two you can apply for ICF credentials (via the ACSTH pathway) if you have enough mentor coaching hours (click here to join our ACC Fast Track program which includes the six hours of mentor coaching you will need). After Level Two you can enrol in the Graduate Certificate in Organisational Coaching and Leadership at Charles Sturt University (with Level 2 you are half-way through the Grad Cert). You may also choose to continue on to Coaching Accreditation via Level 3.
