In order to become a high-performance professional coach running your own Coaching 2.0 business, you will need to demonstrate a level of self-awareness at least one level above your potential clients. In order to maintain the very high standards of Coaching 2.0, this means you will need to be able to accommodate an AQ8 (late-stage, mature client) client should they choose to coach with you.
Qualification on Completion: The Coaching Room Advanced Professional Coach
Integration, Mentoring, Supervision Accreditation – IPCP Level 3 teaches the skills to become a supervisor and developer of coaches.
In the only coaching training of its kind, you will be Coached for your own development and Supervised as a professional Coach.
As part of your training, we’ll review your coaching sessions piece by piece to support your AQ growth and that of your clients and mentor you.
We will also supervise you live in the room, and provide group and one-to-one developmental coaching along the way.
Level 3 is designed to allow you to expand your coaching to the level of a coaching supervisor. Reviewing the coaching literature highlights that there is no agreed definition of coaching supervision. Grant (2012, p. 17) integrated the main themes and adapted the definition of Hawkins and Schwenk (2006) to refer to supervision in coaching as:
“…a structured process for coaches, designed to help coaches attend to improving the quality of their coaching; to grow their coaching capabilities and support themselves and their practice with the help of a coaching supervisor.”
In order to become a supervisor of coaches, or indeed a developer of coaches running your own Coaching 2.0 workshops, you will need to demonstrate a level of self-awareness at least one level above your potential clients. In order to maintain the very high standards of Coaching 2.0, this means you will need to be able to accommodate an AQ8 (late-stage, mature client) client should they choose to coach with you.
This is something brand new, as no other organisation offers such a rigorous ethical framework for coach development. If you have not progressed through the Coaching 2.0 framework, you will not get the opportunity to supervise other coaches, as it is entirely likely some will be a higher level AQ score than you.
By this time, you will know the ramifications of this scoring, and what it means for the coaching relationship. It is not a topic for debate, as no process for coaching (such as GROW) will mean you are capable of coaching a higher-level client.
You will be both Coached for your own development and Supervised as a professional Coach, as your live and recorded coaching sessions are broken down and dissected for the purposes of your and your client’s AQ growth.
We are certain this point will be understood by the time you get to MCO7, after rigorous debate and development.
“Embarking on my journey as a Coach, I really felt like I was learning all of these great and different techniques and models. However I didn't know which one to use and when. Doing NLP Practitioner, Master Prac and ACMC really laid the foundation that ACCM&S brought together. I have developed so much as a person and as a coach. I highly recommend this program as the natural next step in becoming a great Coach.”
