If leadership coaching is about unleashing leadership potential, culture coaching is about unleashing strategic & organizational potential. Our thought leadership on Executive Coaching as Coaching for Strategy, Culture and Leadership is opening new perspectives for many coaches in the world. We are pioneers of this field as we presented at ICF’s Converge 2021 conference this new field of coaching as a result of our research and practice.
We have developed North America’s first Executive Culture Coaching Certificate Program, focusing exclusively on strategy-culture alignment and culture dynamics of large corporations. This program helps participants work with Executives / Senior Leaders in both 1:1 and team / group coaching settings.
If you are an HR professional, seasoned, or executive leader, or an accredited coach working within organizations, our ICF accredited Executive Culture Coaching program is for you! This program is focused on building the knowledge and skills needed for coaching towards a self-actualizing workplace culture. We focus on strategy-culture alignment, corporate North Star, managing employee engagement, employee experience, building Culture Action Plans and coaching through survey results.
The Executive Culture Coaching Program (Module 3) provides participants with Continuing Coach Education credits (CCEs) through the International Coaching Federation (ICF). This means that upon completion of Module 3, ICF accredited coaches will gain 40 credits of supplemental and advanced education to upgrade skills and renew an ICF credential.
Whether you require the CCE credits or not, your completion of Modules 1, 2 (prerequisites), and 3 will earn you the coveted titles of Maslow Certified Leadership Coach (MCLC) and Certified Executive Culture Coach (CECC). Our enrollment advisors can answer your questions and help you plan your certification path.
