Another area of innovation we insisted upon is constructing an open-ended training program. Most certification courses are terminal – that’s to say they come to a grinding halt once a coach has put in the work required to achieve their certificate. And yet, by this point we’ve invested a great deal into learning about each coach – their style, their skillset, their aspirations and goals – almost as much as they’ve invested in becoming one of us.
In our view, once you receive your certification…the relationship has just begun.
Together, we grow as a community. All certified coaches are given access to invite-only communities to share best practices in coaching, leadership, and entrepreneurship. We offer continuous learning opportunities focused on high-impact coaching skills and exercises based on some of Marshall’s greatest hits including What Got You Here Won’t Get You There, TRIGGERS, Mojo, Stakeholder Centered Leadership, and more.
We even encourage and support coaches in creating sub-communities with peer-to-peer coaching, role play practice labs, and local onsite gatherings. At Marshall Goldsmith Stakeholder Centered Coaching® we equip each individual we certify with the skills, tools, and community they need to build the career of their dreams.
