Aspiring coaches come to the Imago coaching program from a variety of backgrounds with the intention of building and advancing coaching skills. We offer two designations for individuals and teams who want a coach training program that demonstrates rigor and success with helping clients embrace, make and sustain change.
Coaching is first about the connection between the coach and client that leads to both a supportive and challenging environment. Without a relationship between the coach and client. coaching often remains superficial and does not deliver on expected results. It is also based upon conversations that deepen learning and understanding of self and the world. Next coaching challenges individuals to develop and grow into the best version of themselves. In a corporate setting, leaders and managers also help to remove challenges so that peak performance can be achieved. Finally, coaching requires a commitment and follow-though on action steps to achieve goals.
We believe that coaches act as a catalyst for change through a consistent and confident focus on strengths and while managing to areas for growth. We facilitate learning rather than teaching, provide a conduit for and place emphasis on unlocking potential and maximizing performance while assigning ownership of outcomes to the client.
The Imago Coaching program begins with a proprietary model for coaching based upon guidelines established by WABC™ and the body of coaching research. The model delineates core competencies believed to be essential for demonstrating expertise in coaching.
Our business coach training leads to both a Registered Corporate Coach-RCC™ and Certified Business Coach-CBC™ designation through the Worldwide Association of Business Coaches.
