The systemic evolutionary coach training and certification program: visions and objectives

The program integrates the coaching philosophy promoted by the ICF and the study of specific competencies through the approach of linguistic precision, deriving from transformational linguistics, as well as the systemic approach.

  • Observe the world from different perspectives, finding the inter-relationships between elements thanks to a systemic vision;

  • Utilize an empowering language and manage the spaces of silence to generate contexts of successful learning;
  • Live the profession of coaching, making constant reference to a strong ethical approach, as a guide for being of greater use to clients and the profession;
  • Recognize how contexts and systems of learning influence and are influenced by individual choices and actions;
  • Think of clients as a system in which the different components, that is, the body, the mind, the system of values and that of beliefs, such as its own goals or mission, are to be considered in their totality to promote evolution, results and well-being;
  • Keep constantly up-to-date, interacting with expert colleagues and other professionals, to offer to their clients the best possible state-of-the-art training.

Didactic organization

The training modules are given in-person and/or by means of teleconferencing systems. Each module provides for direct interaction between the trainer and the participants. Some modules require a number of activities of greater depth (research, practice …) to be completed.
The path of mentoring is followed partly in-person, and partly by means of audio and/or web conferencing.


The systemic evolutionary coach training and certification program has been developed to offer to the participants solid competencies in the different areas that constitute the theoretical corpus for an excellent coach. As well as the contents, the program provides for numerous practical activities which are aimed at applying what has been learnt.
Each module is designed by taking account of the most up-to-date and effective training methodologies for adults and is structured to respond to different styles of learning. By means of mentoring and supervision the participants are accompanied towards consolidating their learning and are supported in the early phase of their work with clients.

Learning objectives

As a result of participation in the program the students will have integrated the principles of coaching in their lives, making themselves accountable for gaining their personal and professional results, as well as having acquired the competencies to create spaces of learning and development for their clients.


The general objective is pursued by means of the acquisition of a solid theoretical base of reference which includes:

  • the systemic approach, linguistic precision, learning theories, the science of management – principally orientated towards personal success, leadership and the definition of objectives;
  • the promotion of a learning space that enables the coaching competencies to be constantly practiced and integrated in the style of communication;
  • the development of a culture of individual accountability for the continuing pursuit of excellence for oneself and one’s clients;
  • focus upon ethics and respect for every kind of human being and organization to promote individual accountability for the effects of one’s own choices and actions.
Menslab’s coaching approach

In Menslab’s view, an effective coach has increased competence in:

Language. For a coach it is fundamental to understand how language influences the construction of human beings’ reality and well-being. Taking this belief as a starting-point, the training program promotes the development of a ‘clean’ language, direct and effective.

Systemic approach. The systemic vision allows different viewpoints to be considered, as well as the relationship existing between the elements present in a context. Using a systemic perspective in coaching allows consideration of how the client influences and is influenced by systems of belonging, in such a way as to increase the possibility of making choices that will have a positive influence for both the client and his or her context of reference.

Management of cycles and processes. The focus upon coaching as a process rather than on single sessions allows the coach to concentrate upon the learning process and on how her or his client is learning from the experience.

Management of internal states. In order to be effective and at the service of his or her clients, a coach must manage his or her own belief system, emotions and judgement as to what is right or wrong, in such a way as to maintain the neutrality which allows the client to be left his or her own spaces of expression, practice and learning.

The trainers

The program is facilitated exclusively by professional coaches in possession of ICF accreditation who, apart from coaching competencies, have had solid training as trainers and instructors of adults.
