Back in 2005, frustrated with coach training options in the market at the time, we developed our initial comprehensive coach training program. Our goal was to create something geared to experienced professionals who knew the basics about coaching but still wanted to be challenged intellectually and to expand their knowledge base beyond coaching fundamentals. Thus Coach Academy was born and has continued to refine its programs and add new dimensions and content as the practice of coaching has advanced.
Coach Academy now provides practical, NLP-based coach training and certification preparation for leaders, HR/OD professionals, practicing coaches, consultants, and other “people” professionals.
Coach Academy International, an independent unit within Positive Coach LLC, offers an exciting catalog of approved coach training programs that equip aspiring entrepreneur coaches, human resource professionals and business leaders to expertly learn and practice coaching skills and, if desired, obtain professional coaching credentials.
Research has proven that Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) is a powerful set of tools and techniques based on the study of human excellence and communication. And the ICF coaching competencies represent the best practices of accomplished coaches. Further, the ICF is the most important and only independent certifying body in the industry.
Our coach certification programs are distinctive training experiences that blend together the science of rapport, communication, and performance excellence that come from Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) with the proven best practices of coaching reflected in the ICF Coaching Competencies. Programs are in-person and led by expert, certified Faculty.
As an approved training provider for both the ICF and the Center for Credentialing and Education (for the BCC), we have worked tirelessly to maintain our training standards and support our students for coaching and credentialing success. We are dedicated to the simple mission of having an exponentially positive impact on our world one person at a time.
We generally offer two “public” coach certification programs every year in Dallas, TX. We also design and conduct customized coach training programs for sponsored industry groups and large organizations. Finally, we offer various webinars for coaching professionals to support continuing education needs.
The Coach Certification program continues to receive rave reviews as an extremely impactful learning experience. It’s “life-changing”—that’s the most common description that we hear from our students. Read what our students have said.
