Coach Training EDU adopts the coaching skill criteria and core competencies as outlined by the International Coaching Federation (ICF).
The following core coaching competencies are woven throughout your 1.0 and 2.0 coach training courses. Your coach-trainer will use these criteria as a starting point to give you useful feedback in your coach-client overviews (aka mentor coaching).
The following are the specific coaching skills criteria and core competencies the ICF and CTEDU will be referencing and expecting from coaches in training and during the certification process. For a more detailed overview, visit our Certification ICF Marker page.
Setting a clear, measurable agenda for a coaching session provides a strong foundation for the whole session.
Developing trust is a mixture of empathetic listening and skill in designing the coach-client alliance.
The two core skills of coaching are listening and asking effective questions.
Being able to speak directly to what needs addressing is the hallmark of an effective coach.
Helping a client learn about him or herself is one of the most valuable benefits from coaching.
Well-designed actions enable learning and insights to produce tangible results.
A skilled coach also addresses accountability and the larger impact coaching has on the client’s life.
