Advanced Test Design builds upon your skills in helping clients to 1) identify their limiting assumptions that are ripe for further exploration and 2) create a series of ITC tests that can systematically generate data to overturn their immune systems. The program consists of four weekly 3-hour sessions – giving you the chance to dive deep in each training session and to practice in between our meetings.
Program Faculty: Maria DeCarvalho and Deb Helsing
Credit hours for certification with the International Coaching Federation are pending.
The program consists of four three-hour sessions with individual work in between meetings. Sessions will run from 9 AM – 12 PM Eastern Time.

Health and safety concerns around COVID-19 have prompted us to cancel in-person programs this spring and begin to offer more opportunities to connect online. This way of working is not new for us! We have supported clients and conducted coach development sessions online for a number of years. What is new is the greater variety of offerings we’ve just announced.
Taking more of our programs online also means that many members of our global community will be able to learn about and deepen their ITC practice without the additional expenses of travel.
Our Minds at Work senior faculty: Maria DeCarvalho, Deb Helsing, Bob Kegan and Lisa Lahey lead all of our coach development programs. Typically, all four of them participate in the Boston Facilitator’s Workshop and the Online FW. Deb and Maria lead all the Teams Day programs, in Boston and virtual, and the Advanced Test Design course together. Deb or Maria will lead a cohort in our online Mapmaking for 1:1 Coaching class.
We currently hope and plan to offer the Facilitator’s Workshop and Using ITC with Teams programs in-person in Boston this October. Along with everyone else, we depend on recommendations from the scientists and officials who are guiding efforts to keep everyone safe from the virus. If we are not able to hold the programs in Boston we will switch them to an online format. We will make that decision and inform everyone by early July.
It is our hope to resume offering in-person programs in Boston as soon as circumstances allow.
Just as we do in every Minds at Work program, whether we gather in Boston or virtually, we ask that you commit to being present and engaged for the entire time, which probably requires clearing your calendar of other commitments ahead of time. Our trainings are highly interactive, and your participation and perspective support your colleagues’ learning as well as your own! We always include regular breaks throughout the program, and – since we appreciate the realities of working from home – we aren’t bothered by the on-screen appearance of family members, pets, a cup of tea or a snack. It’s also important to know that the ICF requires anyone seeking credits from a program to participate in every session.
You will need a reliable high-speed internet connection and the ability to access the videoconferencing system Zoom (required) and Google Docs (optional, but recommended). Both Zoom and Google Docs are available for free. A web-enabled camera is strongly recommended as well, so that we can see you! We will send out more info on technology closer to the program.
Final information on materials is forthcoming. We expect to use some readings from the book Immunity to Change. If you don’t already own a copy of Immunity to Change, you may wish to purchase it now. We may also make use of other readings (in the form of digital PDFs) that we will distribute through email.
To protect the privacy of our participants and protect our intellectual property, these programs will not be recorded, in accordance with our policies for in-person workshops in Boston.
Yes, for full participation in our existing programs (both the Boston and Online Facilitator’s Workshops and both versions of Using ITC with Teams) you will receive ICF CCE credits. We will shortly be applying for ICF credentialing for our newest programs: ITC Map Making for 1:1 Coaching and Advanced Test Design. We expect to be able to offer credits for full participation in those programs.
