Professional Coaching Training
1st Level Training: 75 Hours Core Training for Professional Coaching
Transformative Coaching is for aspiring Professional Coaches, managers and executives wanting to develop a ‘Coaching Management Style’. Our training offers a unique opportunity for leaders to integrate coaching conversation into their managerial skillset. Enabling leaders to access untapped potential and challenge limiting behaviors in their people, this process creates clearly defined goals and specific action plans for success.
A commitment to prepare our coaches to achieve sustainable results for their clients is at the core of our coach training. Achieved through a process of heightening awareness and deepening learning, this differs from other coaching methodologies that employ a tactical or remedial approach more useful in trouble-shooting and problem solving. Through deep and focused coaching conversations a shift from contextual-awareness to self-awareness is created uncovering how meaning is constructed. The result: A greater understanding of what really matters most and truly aligns with their intention. Armed with this emerging understanding a clear path is created along with the ability to hold themselves accountable to what they want to achieve.

Approved by the (ICF) International Coach Federation, the world-renowned organization that sets professional coaching industry standards, our transformative coaching training program offers an exciting and powerful approach not seen until now. With its fresh, leading-edge approach our process enables authentic lasting change. Upon completion of the training, you will receive professional coaching certification. As a graduate of the academy, you would have gained 75 hours of coach training and satisfied the requirements for credentialing that will enable you to apply for ICF Membership and Credential.
At Coach Masters Academy, our coaching framework integrates the science of Emotional Intelligence and Positive Psychology to enable change that is sustainable. Developed over many years by our Founder – Ben Koh - Master Certified Coach (MCC), this revolutionary coaching process uses our proprietary framework known as the Awareness-Clarity-Choice ConversationTM.
The Awareness-Clarity-Choice Conversation TM uses an evocative coaching approach that leverages the advanced adult reflective learning theories to expand people’s capacity for awareness and enabling greater clarity about what motivates them to either engage or hold back. Through deep and focused conversations a shift from contextual-awareness to self-awareness is created uncovering how meaning is constructed. The result: A greater understanding of what really matters most and truly aligns with their intention. Armed with this emerging understanding a clear path is created along with the ability to hold themselves accountable to what they want to achieve.
It is unique in that it focuses not only on learning but on the process of learning itself. When coaching occurs at the meta-level, it allows change to occur at the deepest level by clarifying and refining goals, expectations and outcomes. You will develop an authentic presence and acquire a proven framework that will equip you to support your clients and help them experience a transformative shift in their thinking.
More than 800 coaches across the globe had completed their training with us from 2013 to 2015. Our thoughtful integration of theories, and practical application, provides coaches with the understanding, the skills and the confidence to ignite within their clients a desire, and the commitment toward a new path.
(1) Comprehensive instructional program that focuses on gaining a clear understanding of the concept and applying this learning practically
We know that developing mastery in coaching and acquiring the set of skills, attitudes and competencies necessary in order to become truly professional requires a demanding curriculum that moves a student beyond classroom concepts into participative coach-learning contexts. That is why our coaching certification provides close supervision by experienced coaches so that skills may be systematically and progressively mastered. Every student gets 35 hours of coaching supervision with helpful reviews followed up with one-on-one mentoring sessions. In additional, students will get to listen to the recording of the conversation again, reflecting and reworking to see what they would readjust and do differently.
What makes us stand apart from the crowd and makes our program truly transformative is that we go beyond skills and knowledge into the mastery of coaching presence. Designed to provide a quality layered learning process, our students go through a formative process where the core competencies of coaching are forged and refined: presence, active listening and powerful asking. They gain clarity and awareness through reflection and feedback.

Our locally based Program Directors offer ongoing support for professional development through networking events, helping build client coaching hours, and most importantly to completing the ICF credential application process. At a global level, our academy provides monthly online sessions to keep students abreast of the latest coaching trends allowing them to hone their skills and a platform to form peer-to-peer networks for continual learning even after the course ends. As our student, you become a part of an expanding international community of coaches where our graduates often reach out to the new students to support them in their learning journey.
