There is an increasing number of team coaching classes on the market. In our experience, many classes are full of theory and make the topic more complicated than it needs to be. In our hands-on training, you will learn what to do, how to coach, which facilitation and coaching techniques are useful when. You will learn techniques for online coachings as well as for real-life coachings. The course is accredited with ICF as ACSTH and with EMCC as TCQA so that you will have a valuable certificate (EMCC ITCA and ICF ACTC when it becomes available) to show for your learning. On top of this, you will receive a social-media badge as "Certified SolutionsAcademy Team Coach".
