Course Description

The Leadership Coaching Application course is the place where all of the learning throughout the program is integrated and applied. This course assesses a student's learning and integration of ICF competencies. Students learn to be coaches and learn the ICF competencies through coaching pro bono clients, classroom work, and work in their assigned Learning Circles and with Learning Circle Advisors. During the program, students are expected to coach at least three pro bono clients for a total of 30 hours. With a tradition of service, the program encourages students to select at least one client from a non-profit organization. Students also complete many written assignments including the final required papers. These are reviewed and integrated into the program in the practicum. Additionally, students are expected to meet at least monthly with learning circle advisors to forward and deepen mastery of concepts learned in the readings, class, and in coaching practice.
