Course Overview

The Coaching Lab is a 7-week supervised group coaching experience designed to give you practice and feedback about your coaching skills. You will work virtually with a group of 4-5 participants and an experienced coach educator who will guide your group through a series of exercises to practice "Level 1" skills: establishing a coaching agreement, forming strong client relationships, asking powerful questions, and communicating and listening effectively. In order to enroll in this course, you must have completed a minimum of 50 training hours in courses that have covered the process/practice of coaching and interpersonal relationship skills in coaching. We recommend "Coaching Tools for Transformation" and "Coaching Relationship Essentials," but similar courses may be substituted upon approval of our admissions team. Other prerequisites: Participants will need to complete the pre-work and submit an ILP prior to starting the weekly coaching meetings.


7 Weeks | 90-120 minutes per week in small groups, plus online course content


About The Coaching Lab

This is a seven-week course focused on practicing coaching skills in small groups of 4-5, under the supervision of an ELOC Coach. The labs will use "real play" exercises created to focus on one or two coaching competencies each week. Coaching lab meetings will run on either Tuesday nights or Thursday nights, from 7-9pm Central.
