Purdue to offer certificate in leadership coaching beginning in June

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Those interested in learning how to become an effective coach in the workplace are encouraged to sign up for a new certificate in leadership coaching offered by the Purdue Department of Organizational Leadership and Supervision.

To earn a certificate, participants must attend the two-day kickoff meeting, then take part in 20 90-minute Web seminars on topics such as turbo listening, return on investment, mobilizing the organization, personal coaching styles and learning the language of coaching.

To earn a certificate, participants must attend the two-day kickoff meeting, then take part in 20 90-minute Web seminars on topics such as turbo listening, return on investment, mobilizing the organization, personal coaching styles and learning the language of coaching.

The five-month program begins June 24 and 25 at Purdue’s Dauch Alumni Center with a kickoff meeting that will give participants a chance to meet all the leaders involved. Most of the certificate program will be conducted via phone or Internet.

The 60-hour program, which will conclude in late November, is designed to prepare professionals to qualify for associate-level certification with the International Coach Federation, said Jane Creswell, director of the certificate program and managing director of the Purdue Organizational Leadership Development Lab.

The International Coach Federation defines coaching as “partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential.”

Creswell is a master certified coach through the federation and was an internal coach at IBM before starting her own coaching consulting firm, Internal Impact.

“With managers today constantly being asked to do more with less, coaching skills are vital,” said Creswell, author of “The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Coaching for Excellence.” “Coaching focuses on how to work with every employee in the organization to realize untapped potential to solve problems and increase efficiency. Anyone in an organization can benefit from coaching training.”

To earn a certificate, participants must attend the two-day kickoff meeting, then take part in 20 90-minute Web seminars on topics such as turbo listening, return on investment, mobilizing the organization, personal coaching styles and learning the language of coaching. Those in the program also will be required to take part in Web sessions conducted by guest speakers who are professionals in the coaching industry. Each session will be offered twice in an effort to accommodate each participant’s schedule.

In addition, participants will be divided into small groups, and each group will work with an instructor to listen to recorded coaching sessions and critique them against criteria set forth by the International Coach Federation. Participants also will have one-on-one feedback sessions over the phone with a certified coach who will offer personalized advice.

Those who complete all the requirements will earn a certificate in leadership coaching and will be qualified to apply for certification through the International Coach Federation.

The June 24-25 session is open to those who aren’t interested in completing the rest of the program.

To sign up, or for questions about registration, contact Beth Scharf at Purdue Conferences at bcscharf@purdue.edu. For questions about the program content, contact Creswell at 765-494-7711, jcreswell@purdue.edu.

The application deadline is June 13. Additional information, as well as a link to the registration, is online at http://www.leaderlab.tech.purdue.edu/Overview.html
