Foundations of Coaching Course

The Foundations of Coaching course brings you up to speed on some of the fundamentals of coaching the rational brain.

The Foundations of Coaching course brings you up to speed on some of the fundamentals of coaching the rational brain that aren’t covered in our core workshops. Based on the widely-used book Leadership Coaching by Tony Stoltzfus, it teaches the basics of the coaching approach: goals-setting, action-planning, the coaching funnel model of a conversation, and the fundamental listening and asking techniques used to coach both the emotional and rational. While required for those pursuing LMI certification, it is also a great fit for those who just want to pick up more of the basic skills that form the backdrop to LMI’s core workshops.

  1. This 12-week tele-course is offered by phone, so you can participate from anywhere in the world, and is taught by LMI’s Coaching Director. In between the weekly group sessions, you’ll meet one-on-one with a peer partner (usually by phone) to practice what you are learning. You’ll enjoy interacting with a small group of other aspiring coaches who are on the same journey as you are, trying out your skills on one another, and listening to live and recorded coaching demos that show you the techniques you are reading about.

“”This is an amazing course which gives you the tools to communicate effectively in all aspects of life. The pacing of the material allowed sufficient time for personal reflection and dialog with peers. Dave is very intuitive and connects with and values each participant; he fosters a safe environment and honors the learning process without allowing one person to dominate a conversation or session. Highly recommend this training!” Tamara
