Course Description

Unlock potential with the Leader as Coach program 

Transform your workplace, yourself and others with Leader as Coach, the first International Coaching Federation (ICF)-accredited course to be offered by an Alberta post-secondary institution.

With Lethbridge College’s decades of experience in teaching and learning and ICF’s global reputation in coaching excellence, you’ll be on the path to transforming your leadership through coaching practice.

Whether you want to:
  • transform your business through ethical and competent coaching
  • become a professional coach for individual clients
  • grow your leadership skills through adopting a coach-like approach

Leader as Coach is for you.

Leader as Coach fulfils three of the five necessary steps toward achieving your Associate Certified Coach Credential from ICF. Your registration fee includes 14 sessions directed by our lead facilitator, Ed Temple, a Master Certified Coach with more than 2,500 hours of coaching experience, with support from faculty who are all ICF-certified.

What makes Leader as Coach extraordinary?
  1. CHANGE THE WAY YOU WORK: For Human Resource professionals, Learning and Development leaders, CEOs and business owners, this course can transform your workplace culture by helping managers adopt a coach-like approach.
