Practise Your Coaching Skills Within a Coaching Specialty
As one of the largest, most diverse coaching training schools in the world, ICA offers an ever increasing range of coaching specializations. These are driven by the global market and community needs and are often inspired by our current students and graduates.
These coaching groups are niche-specific practicum networks within our student body where you can develop the practical side of your coaching. Here you can run practice freely and explore your own coaching style in a safe supportive space. Students of our couch training groups come together to laugh, share, practise, and discuss their own resources, experiences, stories, tools, and ways of addressing common coaching issues specific to that group— in short they have developed a shared practice to better serve their respective communities. Each practicum is facilitated by an experienced coach and trainer related to the coaching specialty.
Each Coaching Group has its own Forum space – a meeting place providing a dynamic and fun place for brainstorming, creativity, information and resource sharing, a source for all those interested in a particular coaching topic which allows you to continue the conversation beyond just the teleclass environment.
The more you practise, the more confident you will be as a coach.
