ALA has blazed the next generation of coaching since 2013. The research concepts called upon in this unique program are the sciences of energy, mindfulness, consciousness, neurogenesis, positive psychology, and quantum physics–combined with the art of being human. We don’t simply train you, we transform you.
“True teachers are those who use themselves as bridges over which they invite their students to cross; then, having facilitated their crossing, joyfully collapse, encouraging them to create their own.”
Customized Coach Training Cohorts
THE RIGHT FIT
One of the biggest challenges aspiring coaches face in choosing the right coach training program is being sure that the curriculum’s focus will be aligned with the type of coaching they wish to offer. Authentic Leadership Advisors Academy was created with this in mind. Rather than delivering the same static content repeatedly, we cover foundational material, followed by facilitated discussion tailored to meet the specific needs of the students enrolled.
Intimate Class Size
ALA Academy limits each cohort to a maximum of eight students in order to ensure that every student receives the time and attention necessary to be transformed in the course of the training. We have a minimum of two fully ICF credentialed faculty, and one or two additional faculty, on staff at all times. Our intentionally small classes and high faculty-to-student ratio are how and why we are able to keep the program so short!
We pride ourselves on being anti-PowerPoint! Each session begins with an overview and explanation of that module’s lesson, followed by interactive discussion of real-life scenarios that illustrate the topic. Class consists of a mixture of thought-provoking and fun experiential exercises, as well as in-class practice coaching, designed to solidify an individual and group understanding of the material covered.
Authetic Leadership Advisors Academy’s Authentic Leadership Coaching Certification (CALC) program is recognized by the International Coaching Federation (ICF) as Approved Coach Specific Training Hours (ACSTH), which provides students with 94 or 125 training hours towards obtaining their ICF ACC or PCC credential.
Curriculum Focus Areas
Leadership, Executive, and Corporate Coaching; Individual Development Coaching; Internal Coaching; Organizational Development, and Talent Management Strategy; Therapists and Consultants wishing to offer Coaching; Solopreneurship, and Authentic Leadership Professional Development
Flexible Training Options
Since many coaches-in-training have fulltime jobs and otherwise hectic lives, multiple semi-monthly cohorts are offered throughout the year to meet the scheduling needs of the students enrolled. Participants may choose from in-person and virtual training options.
Be a Catalyst for Authentic Personal Development
What is Professional Coaching?
In simple terms, coaching is the process of facilitating increased self-awareness for individuals interested in achieving personal growth, and yet it is so much more than that. Primarily, coaches partner with their clients to help them develop more self-esteem and confidence in order to make desired changes in their life.
HOW DOES PROFESSIONAL COACHING WORK?
Coaches work with their clients to identify intentions for the future, gain a better understanding of who they are and wish to become, reach clarity of vision, and take bold action steps towards achieving their authentic potential.
How do I know if I'd Make a Good Professional Coach?
People who are destined to be coaches are those who thrive on listening to and supporting others in overcoming their fears. If you are the friend, family member, or colleague that tends to be the ‘go-to-person’ for encouragement and inspiration, chances are you would make a fine coach.
What is a Certified Authentic Leadership Coach (CALC)?
Rather than coaching to the goal or desired outcome, authentic leadership coaches are highly trained to laser in on the internal identity (the story the client believes about who they are) in order to uncover the core intention beneath the goal. Clients may set goals for themselves that are externally driven, and therefore lead them further into an inauthentic life. ALA Academy trains and fosters Certified Authentic Leadership Coaches (CALCs) to uncover the true identity desire that is hidden within the goal, in order to help clients make conscious decisions from the inside out.
