I’m a practicing leadership coach and career transition coach who has seriously attempted ICF certification for over a decade. Life always got in the way. At the end of my four month process with Coach Academy International, I am proud to say, I will be sitting for the exam in two months, because I will have completed all of the requirements! In a past life I served as the chief learning officer for a Fortune 500 and I’m finicky about training. Their process is outstanding experiential learning facilitated by three master coach/trainers. I wanted a program that integrated brain-based coaching and found a practical version in how they wove NLP methods with the ICF coach competencies. The faculty have been very generous and obviously committed to the success of their coach clients. My cohort was a particularly special group of coaches-in-training and I expect to have professional relationships with several for years. Everything is included except taking the exam for you. I’m so glad to be completing certification and feel blessed to have waited for Mina, Peggy and Lynn and my experience at Coach Academy International.
