About the course

With the unprecedented shift of generations in the workforce, as well as expectations of both workers and their employers, coaching has become a truly strategic skill set needed to support employee development and management succession strategies. The Coles College Certified Managerial Coach Program or the Applied Coaching for Leaders will help you address these challenges and develop a more engaged workforce.

Managing for Success

Our distinctive programs are designed to enhance your leadership skill set through the following:

  • Self-awareness and understanding of personal strengths and vulnerabilities as a coach.
  • Experience as a coachee.
  • Coaching skills demonstrated by the participant and evaluated by an accredited faculty using direct supervision and a written examination.
