Coaching is a client-driven partnership that empowers people to achieve more growth and change than they would have on their own. Instead of giving advice, a coach applies a set of relational influence skills to draw solutions out of the coachee themselves and their own values and experience. This client and context-oriented approach makes coaching a great cross-cultural tool.
Our trainings use an experiential learning process to develop foundational and advanced coaching competencies. They are designed for those interested in professional level coaching, as well as lay leaders looking to incorporate the coaching model into their work and relationships.
Professional Coach Training Programs:
MCT - Global Coach Training
Designed for those interested in a professional level program designed to train and equip coaches who will effectively serve frontline workers and leaders – especially those working cross-culturally. The training process consists of 5 modules conducted over a 24-month period. The first 12 months are built around three training modules developed by Tony Stoltzfus, a founder and thought-leader in the Christian coaching movement in cooperation with CMI Master Trainers. They cover Foundational Coaching Skills, Coaching with Personality Types, and Coaching Life & Leadership issues from a Life Purpose perspective. The remaining 2 modules are designed by CMI Master Trainers and focus on learning to apply the core skills cross-culturally, all under the guidance of a Mentor Coach committed to helping you develop the 5C’s of an inter-culturally effective professional coach: Confidence; meta-Cognition; Core Competencies; Cultural Intelligence; Commitment to service and excellence.

This program is similiar to MCT, but doesn’t delve as deeply into cross-cultural training.
