Program Methodology

Through a combination of creative approaches, participants will take away a stronger cognitive foundation, higher level of coaching proficiency, and deeper commitment to providing the best value to their clients. Our holistic approach will utilize the following methods:

  • Online workshops/webinars (demos, simulations, interactive discussions, group exercises)
  • Internship (on-the-job training)
  • 1:1 Mentoring Support
  • Group Mentoring Support
  • Group Work (case study / research)
  • Supplementary Readings

Upon completion, you will have the skills, knowledge, and confidence to ensure your long-term success in this expanding and rewarding profession.


Participants are required to undergo the Internship for immediate application of learnings from the online workshops. It is expected that when participants sign up for the course, they should already engage with a coaching client, either paying or pro bono, for their internship.


During the Internship, they are required to complete six (6) coaching sessions conducted every 2 weeks with their chosen client.


Participants will receive four (4) individualized mentoring sessions and join 3 two-hour group mentoring sessions all throughout the Internship. They are required to submit recordings of their coaching sessions, which will be reviewed by their assigned mentor-coach for feedback.

This workshop provides participants the opportunity to debrief their Internship experience – their challenges, insights, and discoveries. Hearing each other’s internship experience will not only strengthen their learnings but will also prepare them for different coaching cases they will possibly encounter in the future.

This session will also serve as the final evaluation of the participants in terms of their newly acquired coaching skills through a live coaching demo.
