The Corentus Team Coaching Certificate Program is designed as a highly supportive environment where new skills are practiced, new knowledge obtained, and new roles taken on. Participants receive regular feedback and incremental development objectives to help ensure they achieve proficiency.

We take our commitment very seriously to ensure all participants are equipped to begin team coaching confidently, recognizing that there will always be more to learn. Throughout the program, participants coach teams as often as possible; this includes leading a real (pro bono) team development engagement, with a major focus on team coaching. Participants are prepared in advance for each part of the client engagement, and they are supported every step of the way.

In addition, our in-person learning sessions include interactions with thought leaders in the competency areas, as well as practice observing and coaching a variety of real teams. This combination ensures through the course of the program, participants gain both a conceptual understanding of team coaching and the practical experience they need to coach teams with competence and confidence. 

We have accepted the participants for the 2019/2020 cohort!

You may have heard it said that team coaching is the "X Games of coaching." Intensive preparation and hands-on training are critical to be successful in this discipline. The following is a brief overview of what participants can expect after they've been formally accepted into the program.

  • Main Important Dates

    • Currently accepting applications
      — qualified practitioners accepted into program on a rolling basis
      — small cohort and therefore space is limited; if interested apply early

    • Pre-work begins July 1, 2019; including summer learning circle calls

    • Formal Program: September 2019 - May 2020

  • Preparation & Pre-Work

    Before the formal program begins you will receive the following (approx. 40 hours of time):

    • Welcome Packet including pre-work materials (via Google Drive)

    • Name, profiles, and contact information for your Learning Circle Facilitator and other members of your Learning Circle (no more than 4 members per team)

    • Three learning circle calls, led by your Learning Circle Facilitator, to review, digest, and discuss the pre-work materials to ensure a thorough, grounded understanding of the theoretical foundations of team coaching

    Each day of the in-person sessions will commence at 8:00am. The first night will end at 6:00pm, the second night we engage in a full-cohort activity until 8:00pm and the third day will end at 4:00pm. 

    • October 22-24, 2019

    • March 10-12, 2020

    • May 19-21, 2020

Please note that full participation in all in-person sessions is one of the requirements to complete the program and receive a certificate.

  • Activities During In-Person Sessions
    In-person activities include:

    • Workshops in Methods and Skill Development
      Throughout the in-person sessions you will learn methodologies, techniques, and tools from faculty and other thought leaders and specialists in team development and team coaching. You'll also have ample opportunities to put this new knowledge into practice, in a safe and encouraging environment, to develop and deepen your skills.

    • Practice Teams
      During the full duration of the program, you will engage in a team work and experience first hand the team dynamics at play and how Team Coaching feels to the client.

  • Between In-Person Sessions
    Time commitment 5-10 hrs/wk*
    Fewer hours over holidays and more hours during the in-person sessions as noted above.

    * Time commitment between the in-person sessions per participant may vary by the week. This is based on the level of knowledge and competencies obtained by the participant prior to the week. For example if a particular approach, method or practice is being taught and demonstrated during a week and a participant is very familiar with these materials the amount of time for that participant for that week will be on the low end of the range (5-10 hrs/wk).

    Between the in-person sessions, you'll engage in the following activities:

    • Self-Study
      From time-to-time, you will receive additional materials to engage in self study. You may wish to dedicate additional self-study time depending on your experience and educational background in certain competency areas.

    • All-Cohort Calls
      A 90-minute all-cohort call takes place approximately every two-three weeks (dates and times based on availability of the majority of participants). All calls will be recorded so if you must miss a call, you may listen to the recording at a later time.

    • Faculty Support
      One-on-one calls for faculty support will be scheduled at mutually convenient times. You will receive ongoing feedback, coaching, and guidance from your Practice Team Coach, our C4 (Corentus Cohort Customer Care) specialist, and other faculty members.

    • Your Local Pro Bono Team Coaching
      We will support you in engaging with a pro bono team in your local area that you will work with between our in-person sessions. We will assist you every step of the way—supporting you in contracting, data gathering, sensing/observation, and making moves. If you are already engaged with a team in your local area, we will support you in staging this engagement with them.

I appreciate the rigor that Corentus brings to teaching team coaching. This showed up throughout the program and includes the use of frameworks for thinking about team effectiveness and performance; tools for gathering and presenting data; and tools and techniques to help teams test out and sustain new ways of thinking, doing, and being.
