Customized Coach Training Cohorts

The Right Fit

One of the biggest challenges aspiring coaches face in choosing the right coach training program is being sure that the curriculum’s focus will be aligned with the type of coaching they wish to offer. Authentic Leadership Advisors Academy was created with this in mind. Rather than delivering the same static content repeatedly, we cover foundational material, followed by facilitated discussion tailored to meet the specific needs of the students enrolled.

Intimate Class Size

ALA Academy limits each cohort to a maximum of eight students in order to ensure that every student receives the time and attention necessary to be transformed in the course of the training. We have a minimum of two fully ICF credentialed faculty, and one or two additional faculty, on staff at all times. Our intentionally small classes and high faculty-to-student ratio are how and why we are able to keep the program so short!

Experiential Learning

We pride ourselves on being anti-PowerPoint! Each session begins with an overview and explanation of that module’s lesson, followed by interactive discussion of real-life scenarios that illustrate the topic. Class consists of a mixture of thought-provoking and fun experiential exercises, as well as in-class practice coaching, designed to solidify an individual and group understanding of the material covered.

Global ICF & SHRM Accredidation

Our Authentic Leadership Coaching Certification (CALC) program is fully accredited by the International Coaching Federation (ICF), which provides students with training hours towards obtaining their ICF Level 1 path to ACC or Level 2 path to PCC credential, and provides 40 PDCs for SHRM Continuing Education.

Curriculum Focus Areas

Leadership, Executive, and Corporate Coaching; Individual Development aka Life Coaching; Internal Coaching; Organizational Development, and Talent Management Strategy; Therapists and Consultants wishing to offer Coaching; Solopreneurship, and Authentic Leadership Professional Development.

Flexible Training Options

Since many coaches-in-training have fulltime jobs and otherwise hectic lives, multiple semi-monthly cohorts are offered throughout the year to meet the scheduling needs of the students enrolled. Participants may choose from live in-person (Raleigh, NC, USA and beyond) and virtual training options.
