Business Coaching Advantage – Essentials & Advanced Coach Training

We are committed to creating inclusive spaces and advocating for equity in the world.


Coursework and virtual practicum make for a compact 4 to 6 month program of intense learning, and you complete the training hours and coach assessment required to apply for your ICF ACC credential (with appropriate number of coaching hours). March 2023 start.

BCA is grounded in solid research and practical experience, including understanding how the brain works, change theory, positive psychology, conversation intelligence, and the context of leading in a complex, fast-changing world.

Learn more here.


For coaches that want to learn the theory and develop the skills and mindsets required to confidently coach teams – from recognizing an opportunity for team coaching and contracting for it, to creating the container for meaningful team engagement and psychological safety and knowing how to recover when things go wrong. March 2023 start.


As coaches we have an opportunity in every conversation to co-create experiences with clients which invites feelings of being deeply seen, heard and valued. To engage in this work from a place of honesty and vulnerability we must begin first with being open to seeing the expansive wholeness of who we are as coaches and how our lived experiences shape how we see and communicate with the world around us. February 2023 start.
