The Coaching Pathway: Improve Your Skills to Impact More Lives

Whether you’re a manager, teacher, counselor or aspiring coach, you can help the people and groups you most care about to overcome challenges and achieve lasting results by enhancing your coaching skills.

Built by master coaches for developing coaches, this online course focuses on the skills you need to make the most out of every coaching conversation. We cover how coaching differs from other services like consulting, counseling, therapy and mentoring. There is a strong focus on the development of basic coaching skills or core competencies, including listening, questioning, designing and carrying out actions.
