Coach Certification Program

Our most selective and comprehensive program –
and the only path to ITC coach certification!

This in-depth, 12-month, program is designed to train participants in the entire ITC process and to become certified Immunity to Change coaches. This is not a program for people who are new to the coaching field. Successful candidates will have had prior experience in the coaching role, and all participants can look forward to learning with (and from) a community of your professional peers. The curriculum is crafted so that participants experience ITC from both the perspective of the coachee and the coach. In addition to intensive seminars online and several group video-conferences, all participants are paired with a personal Certified ITC Coach and mentor who will guide them through the various aspects of ITC. Our dual approach gives trainees a deep, holistic understanding of Immunity to Change to transform themselves and their practice.

Announcing Our 2022 CCP Cohort!

We know that much of your coaching will continue to take place online in our new world. Over the past two years, we developed and road-tested new tools and delivery approaches, and the responses we are getting from clients is enormously rewarding. There is no better way for us to share these on-line approaches than in an on-line format, and we very much look forward to sharing this new work with you, as well as the established CCP curriculum.

We offered an online CCP program in 2021, and the level of engagement and learning in the cohort has been very gratifying. We combined cohort work with smaller 2-4 person groups to engage in practice and reflection. We offered additional, informal ‘coffee hours’ with Bob Kegan and Lisa Lahey so that participants had the opportunity for more individualized dialogue. And of course, the connections and personal insight participants gained from their 1:1 work with their personal Minds at Work faculty/coach led to deep learning about the ITC process and themselves. As the first applicants for certification submit their coaching portfolios, they demonstrate high quality Immunity to Change work with coachees who are realizing tremendous benefits. Their reflections on the program and coaching success have shown us it is possible to create an intimate, trusting, supportive, and powerful online learning community. And we are thrilled to offer these same possibilities again in 2022.

Our online gatherings will begin in April 2022. This year, we are configuring the cohort gathering meetings as weekly, 2-4 hour sessions, extending over six weeks in our spring (April-May 2022) and then six more weeks in our fall (October-November 2022). Because our cohorts are purposefully designed to include participants from all parts of the world, and therefore many time zones, we are also varying the start and end times of these meetings. We expect that will mean we’ll all be experiencing some “jet-lag-without-the-jet” at times, while enjoying a more convenient schedule at others.
