Practicum: Supervised Coaching Engagement

The Coaching Practicum is a unique and valuable component of our Graduate Certificate in Excecutive Coaching program. You will be supervised by a Master Coach who will support and advise you through the practicum experience. Your client will be a leader from a non-profit organization. 

This is a 3.5 month coaching engagement; most coaches meet with their clients 7 to 9 times throughout the engagement. During the practicum experience, you will have the opportunity to practice all the components of a coaching engagement, from contracting through assessment to development planning, and implementation. The practicum also includes a class, where you will present your coaching case to your cohort using a method for peer supervision.
