Comprehensive course analysis
About the course
Front-end Coaching Intensive (FECI or VFECI)
Due to the impact of COVID-19 in the metro-New York City region of the United States, The Columbia Coaching Program (3CP) has been unable to offer our standard 1-week residential front-end coaching intensives (i.e., External Coaching Intensive - ECI & Internal Coaching Intensive) since the Spring cycle of 2020. As a result, we offered our newly designed Virtual Front-end Coaching Intensive by combining ECI & ICI into a single 1-week, high-impact digital learning experience for the Fall 2020 and Spring 2021 as a virtual program.
Plan for Fall 2021 Front-end Coaching Intensive Cohort
Our hope is to return to the residential, in-person, version of the Front-end Coaching Intensive at the Tarrytown House Estate and Conference Center from November 14-19, 2021, this Fall. The decision to offer the program in-person or continue with the virtual format in November is dependent on the status of the COVID-19 in the metro New York City Region, around the United States, and around the world. While, in April, it seemed plausible that COVID-19 might be in permanent retreat, at least in communities with high vaccination rates like the New York State region; yet the emergence of the Delta variant has changed the situation, with the number of cases rising in all 50 states in the U.S. and in many regions around the world.

The Front-end Coaching Intensive is intended for individuals wishing to coach a variety of clients from an array of organizations. Most participants in this program later serve as consultants in the coaching field. The key benefits are as follows:
- LEARN how to analyze feedback to co-create the client's developmental story (strengths and limitations) while connecting the data to an action plan.
- APPLY multiple data collection and analysis techniques to guide coaching interventions.
- INTEGRATE organizational behavior concepts with coaching practices at the individual, group and organizational levels.
- ENHANCE your strategic and focused conversation skills.
- EXPLORE cutting edge approaches for leveraging coaching capabilities throughout the organization (group and peer coaching).
- DEVELOP a personal coaching "point-of-view" informed by current coaching models, research, "best practices" and a deepened self awareness
Participants interested in establishing and enhancing their career as a professional, executive coach will begin the certification process with this 5-day residential coaching intensive. Participants will have an opportunity to ground their professional practice in the historical, philosophical, and ethical foundations of coaching, combined with leading-edge best practices, current research and emerging trends.
The Intensive provides extensive practice applying foundational coaching skills across a variety of case-based situations that will enhance your capabilities as a coach and establish a clear value proposition for clients.
This is achieved by: (1) establishing a clear coaching "point-of-view" (i.e., guiding principles of effective coaching); (2) exploring strategies and tactics for establishing credibility and building trust with clients; (3) learning the core coaching competencies; and (4) receiving feedback from program instructors and peers during practice sessions designed to demonstrate coaching knowledge and skills. Participants will also examine creative marketing tools for coaches.
Individuals interested in enhancing their coaching competencies are invited to take this Intensive as an "open-enrollment," professional development seminar, without committing to completing the Columbia Coaching Certification Program.
