Coaching is an increasingly theoretically-informed practice, with new university-based coach training programs sprouting by the minute.

That leaves coaches who completed their training even just a few years ago at risk of being left behind.

Most continuing education programs for coaches focus on the same limited range of theories and frameworks – positive psychology, neuroscience and adult development theory. This program focuses on those and many more.

Familiarity with a wide range of psychological theories is foundational for a credible coach in 2019.

The Psychology for Coaches course is the most efficient means for coaches to get the grounding in psychology that they need.

If you don’t feel fully equipped to consistently deliver great results to clients, and are looking for an expanded toolbox drawing on a rich tradition dating back 120 years, register for Psychology for Coaches today.
