Foundations of Coaching
If you are an HR professional, leader, or an aspiring coach with previous leadership or management experience, our ICF accredited Foundations of Coaching program is for you! Develop critical foundational coaching skills by learning how to have a coaching conversation that will empower and grow potential.
Our Foundations of Coaching (Module 1) Program provide participants with Approved Coach Specific Training Hours (ACSTH) through the International Coaching Federation (ICF). This means that upon completion of Module 1, you will have completed half the coaching training necessary to become an Associate Certified Coach (ACC); if you choose to continue onto another module, you will have all the training hours needed for your ACC application. Additional requirements apply. Our enrollment advisors can answer your questions and help you plan your certification path, including how the completion of Module 1 sets you up to complete our Culture Coaching and Executive Coaching programs as well.
Whether you plan to complete a coaching credential through ICF or not, your completion of Module 1 paves the path for taking our other modules, all resulting in Maslow Coaching Certifications.
