Coaching mastery – Paths of specialization for professional coaches

Specialization programs and high-level training for professional coaches who want to work towards mastery in coaching

Coaching Mastery represents the opportunity to rise to what is most impressive in the world of coaching. The program is for students who have completed Coaching Fundamentals and Coaching Professional, or for more expert coaches coming from other accredited training programs or possessing an ICF –International Coach Federation – individual accreditation.

There are many specialization programs contributing to mastery level training, part of the systemic evolutionary coach training and certification program. These programs are all approved by the ICF – International Coach Federation, which awards credits for continuing coaching education (CCE) in the core competencies.

As well as these programs Menslab offers the opportunity to expert coaches to take diplomas in specific areas relevant to coaching, such as mentoring and supervision, training, and strategic consultancy, to enhance one’s own professional capacity and expand business results.

The specialization programs are the following:
Advanced level diplomas and international workshops

Every year Menslab sets up a number of innovative paths, facilitated by the best international coaches and trainers, that lead towards diplomas in mentoring and supervision and other disciplines. Apart from paths towards certification, during the year Menslab makes different specialization opportunities available, both during the summer school at Cagliari, and in Milan, Rome and Madrid, as well as through workshops in video-conferencing that can be attended whatever your location.

Teams that create value: from team coaching to team mentoring - 22,5 hours

A training program that will enhance participants’ work competencies with teams through a mentoring approach. There are other phases in which the team, after a certain period of work, begins to acquire dysfunctional habits and strategies and repeats them automatically, either because it is not possible to observe them from within, or because the team has not paused to recognize them, or indeed because it is unaware of the possibilities for generating flexibility and change.

The continued focus on the creation of value, also through adaptation, transformation, and the practice of new work methods, is channelled through the feedback of a neutral and impartial observer who can offer precise information on what is observed and share possible alternative working methods that will allow the team to regain, maintain and develop its effectiveness.

This impartial observer is the team’s mentor or supervisor, who, by means of a wise use of the coaching approach and thanks to precise competence in teamwork’s best practices, can generate new possibilities by adding value to the team’s contributions and those of individual members, as well as offering new working possibilities based on the best practices.

Inspiring questions - 22,5 hours

The numerous practicals will allow the coaches to gain great awareness as to how their own thought strategies and presuppositions can strongly influence the quality of questions.

Coaching built in total partnership is one of the most empowering and valuable experiences for the client and is the characteristic of coaching at mastery level.

Inspiring mentoring - 22,5 hours

Many coaches have specific areas of competence, for example, in the subject matter of communication rather than in personal organization or other areas.
This path is intended to improve the coaches’ competence in the specific strategies of mentoring, to be used for sharing their own experience, when required by the client or organization.
In this seminar coaching competencies will be retraced from the perspective of mentoring and, in particular, the use of direct communication will be dealt with in depth, extremely useful for offering clients observations that can increase their motivation, create awareness of resources, and accompany them to a new level of success.
