A student completing their Life Coach Certification online through Life Coach Training Institute.

Our Online Life Coach Training Program focuses on the core competencies of coaching. Each session is approximately 2 hours long and can be completed either self-paced or LIVE & Online.


Coaching is obviously trending, but what is coaching?

In this intro session, we show you how coaching is distinguished from all other advising & helping roles.

You’ll not only learn what coaching is, but how its uniqueness allows individuals to get breakthrough and lasting transformation.

We end this session with the 4 Lenses of a First Class Coach.

This session will fill you so much HOPE, CONFIDENCE, & EXPECTATION for the rest of the course!

The coaching conversation is unlike any other type of conversation.

You’ll learn:

  • 5 steps in the flow of a coaching conversation. 
  • Two coaching conversational models to get dynamic results.

A coaching relationship is GOAL-DRIVEN – it’s a relationship that’s going somewhere. You’ll learn how to measure buy-in from a client, 4 keys for helping clients maintain motivation, and how to help clients set clear goals. You’ll walk away with a clear understanding of goal setting and how to hold clients accountable in a way that helps them reach their potential.

Listening is a lost art. Studies show that the attention span of human beings has dropped to just 8 seconds! With such a lack of listening, people are more disconnected and misunderstood than ever.

Session 04: You’ll learn how to hold space with a client, the 7 filters that keep us blocked from understanding, and the 3 Levels of Listening. We also give you some simple techniques to allow you to build awareness of your own personal listening pitfalls, how to watch out for your listening triggers, and how to adjust in real time.

In Session 05, you’ll learn:

  • The 7 things you should be LISTENING FOR
  • How to develop powerful INTUTION you can TRUST.
  • How to share your intuition with a client.
  • How to interpret BODY LANGUAGE CUES.
  • And we’ll finish up with tips on how you can show up as an ACTIVE LISTENER for your clients.

While it seems everyone else is in the business of advice and telling people what to do, coaches are in the business of EMPOWERING their clients to take bold action using their own strategies. However, most individuals lack PERMISSION and suffer from limiting beliefs that keep them stuck. We’ll show you how to ask BETTER, POWERFUL questions that help your clients UNLOCK insights and their own genius.

Where does a new coach even begin when establishing a coaching practice?

Don’t worry! We answer this question and more!

You’ll learn how to stay in your lane as a coach and stay away from liability issues.

We give you a primer on the 3 primary business structures that coaches choose and the pros & cons of them. We also walk you through the coaching agreement and detail what should be included.

BONUS: intake and coaching agreement samples.

Twice a month, in our Tuesday training, we have LIVE Coaching Demos. In this safe, supportive environment, you can play coach or client and get instant feedback.

When you join LIVE Tuesday trainings, every session concludes with your questions!
