Establishing Dynamic Relationships | CAM 502
What does it take to develop a strong, professional coaching relationship? It takes attention to the essentials and going beyond expectations. In CAM 502, we teach you to do just that. In this ICF-approved course, you will learn: ICF ethics and standards, how to help the person being coached to orient around areas of strengths and high performance patterns, the ingredients for a strong first session, and how to go beyond just the doing of coaching in order to really be a coach.      
 


 
Coaching Change, Transition, and Transformation | CAM 503
Coaching is all about change, but not all change is the same and coaches need to be able to support three types of change: proactive change, transitions, and deep transformation.
 

 
Coaching Teams | CAM 507
Coaching isn't just for individuals. It's also ideal for teams. In this course, you will gain an understanding of the difference between a team and other types of groups, learn how to develop authentic teams, learn the skills needed to coach teams, how to support teams in overcoming dysfunction, use team covenants, and create alliances.
 

The Coach Approach to Evangelism and Discipleship | CAM 508  
This course provides you the knowledge and skills necessary to apply coaching to faith conversations so you can use coaching to support people moving closer to God and deeper in their commitment to Christ. Attention is given to how a dialogical approach can be effective for evangelism and discipleship, how coaching can be expressed in the ministries of a local church, and the relationship between coaching competencies and Christian practices.
 


 

The Coach Approach to Leading and Managing | CAM 510
You know how to coach, and you know how to lead, but how do you incorporate coaching into your leadership? This course provides the knowledge and skill necessary for taking a coach approach to working with teams, managing direct reports/volunteers, and leading within a church or other organization.
