ACT has trained over 500 senior leaders within the government to be Leadership + Performance Coaches.
The next Government only Leadership + Performance Coaching Certification Program will take place in Old Town, Alexandria. Our coach-training program is targeted at individuals within the government seeking a professional, associate-level coaching certification with the International Coach Federation (ICF). This may include organizational leaders and managers, consultants, change agents, HR professionals, trainers, internal coaches or facilitators.
ACT’s Leadership & Performance Coach Training Certification Program is approximately a six-month program, consisting of three in-person experiential modules supplemented with virtual group and individual learning.
Upcoming Program Dates:
Module 1: September 29-October 1, 2020
Module 2: November 4-6, 2020
Module 3: December 1-3, 2020
All coaching delivered by ACT is grounded in ACT’s proprietary Coaching Model, tailored specifically for leadership and performance. The model, the ACT Coaching Compass, has transformed the way individuals and groups view themselves and interact with others. The model is simple and intuitive and creates a playful, metaphorical approach to coaching, unlocking the “right brain” creative side, using concepts such as a journey to help clients navigate from where they are to where they want to go. The model is being applied at a number of ACT clients, including the Department of Defense, where up to 500 Senior Leaders are going through this program, as well as other federal agencies, organizations, consultants, and universities such as Brown University.
Instructor Led Training Modules
The three highly experiential modules will provide participants solid grounding in the core skills of coaching. During the nine days of in-person training, the focus is on learning coaching skills that you will apply to unlock the potential of others, helping students build a coaching culture within their organization. The training style is highly participatory, primarily focused on practical experience rather than lecture, with numerous opportunities to coach and receive feedback on newly acquired coaching skills.
