What is Whole Person Coaching®?

Evoke change bringing your whole self to the world

We live in a rapidly changing, complex and often chaotic world.  As someone who values a highly adaptive, yet agile approach to effecting change, you’ll love our unique multidisciplinary Whole Person Coaching method for a truly holistic approach to changemaking in the 21st century.

Holistic in every way,
Whole Person Coaching is a lens, a language and a way of being…


Holistic Lens

We are whole beings, resourceful and capable of learning & growth.

As a Whole Person Coach, you view your client as whole, resourceful and with unlimited learning potential. You also view and address their life holistically, taking into consideration the interconnectedness of all aspects of their outer life and inner world to ensure sustainable positive change, inside and out.

The Language

We each learn, lead and love differently.

As a Whole Person Coach, you leverage a multi-disciplinary approach (cognitive, somatic & narrative) to work with the whole person: mental, emotional, physical, social and spiritual. Our evidence -based, transformational learning process addresses the invisible barriers that prevent you and your clients from achieving the results they seek.

Way of Being

You are the most valuable asset in your coaching toolkit.

As the ultimate instrument of change, there is no one else like you. Our mission is to help you to develop yourself be the best you can be in service of others.  Why not become your best self and a highly effective changemaker for those who matter most to you?

          You’ve Probably Got Questions…

          We’ve got answers!

          Is your coach training program Accredited?

          Yes, our Whole Person Certified Coach (WPCC) programs are fully accredited as an ACTP program with the International Coach Federation (ICF).

          What language do you teach in?

          We teach all of our courses and offer mentoring in English.  Many of our students are not native English speakers though!

          How does the program work?

          At CTW, we offer you our personal best. That means our programs are designed to ensure you gain the skills, confidence and capacity to become a highly effective holistic coach. Beyond that, we also want to make sure you’re able to start your own coaching business, build it by attracting your ideal client base, and succeeding long-term. So we provide countless hours of support as well as ongoing resources and support to ensure you succeed. Though a portion of our program are offered exclusively as digital courses, you’ll discover a number of ways in which our personal touch will champion you to success. These include small live classrooms, various mentoring groups, private online groups, and one-on-one support. Please note you can visit this page to see your options for attending each of our courses. Our Certifications reflect the highest standards and requirements of an ICF accredited program, including four core elements:

          • Professional ICF Accredited Coach Training. These are delivered online (live or self-study) and in-person (Portland, OR) over the course of four Three-Day Live Intensives, held once a month. You can choose the timing of these weekend intensives. But if you plan on earning your ICF credential with us, you will need to attend these intensive either online via zoom conference or in-person.
          • Coaching Practicum.These are your additional practice hours where you’ll be coaching others and receiving coaching from peers and advanced students. If you are currently coaching, you may earn these hours with your existing/new clients. If you’re interested in finding practice clients outside of class (whether paid or pro bono), our program teaches you how to do that.

          For those attending the Advanced Coach Training Bundle:

          • Professional PCC/MCC Level ICF Mentor Coaching. In addition to your coach training weekends, you’ll receive one-on-one private mentor coaching and participate in our group coaching mentor program. You are required to participate in three sessions.  This only applies if you are pursuing the Advanced Coach Training Bundle.
          • Coaching Evaluations. During your mentoring you’ll participate in several formal coaching evaluations. This is where you’ll receive appreciative and developmental feedback related to the ICF Core Competencies.

          BONUS: Independent Study. In addition to the live portion of the program, you’ll receive coursework and access to our robust video library. This supplements the classroom training and further develops your robust toolkit by giving you a wide range of additional material and examples.

          Are their additional expenses that I should know about?

          No. Our coach training program is all-inclusive with the exception of any membership or final exam fees that the International Coach Federation requires. These fees may range from $100 to $500 based on the pathway you choose to apply with at the ICF website, and whether or not you are an ICF member. Upon enrollment of our coach training program, you can become an ICF member.

          What is the time commitment for the program?

          That all depends on you! On average, our students report that they spend 3 to 10 hours a week on the program. Unlike a university or community college, most of this time is spent at your convenience. Whenever you can fit the training into your schedule, it’s there waiting for you. Please note that you have up to 2 years to complete your coursework.

          What if I have a schedule conflict with a course?

          From time to time, we all have unavoidable scheduling conflicts or find ourselves a little under the weather. Unlike a college course, all of our sessions are recorded, enabling you to take part live or at a time that’s more convenient for you. Audio files of our calls are uploaded to the web and available for on-demand streaming. This ensures that you’ll never miss out or fall behind. Please note: if you are applying for your ICF credential and know that you are going to miss more than a couple hours of training, Contact Us for your options.

          If I attend “Live” Virtually, what can I expect?

          Some of us prefer to attend trainings in-person. But there are many factors that can make it a challenge to do so: travel expenses, time away from home, scheduling difficulties, and the myriad of preferred learning styles and speeds. That’s why our global student population loves the online coach training courses offered here at Coach Training World! In a recent poll conducted through our private Facebook group, we discovered that students found “no difference” in their learning capacity between training live online and in-person. This was especially true when considering the interactive design of our Intensives and our attention to support. These findings can’t diminish how much we love having you visit us here at our facility in Portland, Oregon. But the web-based coach training program opens our curriculum to a diverse mix of students around the globe – deepening the learning for all of us. That’s why so many new and seasoned coaches are gravitating toward the online platform. If you’re participating for the first time, you still might be wondering about the actual experience. Here’s what you can expect… The virtual experience So what’s it like to train online for three days? As any of our graduates will tell you: it’s convenient, comfortable and immersive. Our Virtual Intensives are highly interactive. Expect a comprehensive mix of education on all the essentials and coaching competencies. These are combined with active participation in demos, group discussions and practice sessions. You’ll also have unlimited access to the vast coaching resources and manuals we’ve amassed in the past two decades in our student center. And we’ll be there to mentor you every step of the way. If you have questions or need any additional support, we’re ready to help. Feel free to chime in at any point if you need further examples or explanation on any of the concepts we present. By the way: that doesn’t apply to just questions – if something strikes a chord with you, let us all know. Our differences make us great! You may share an example that snaps a concept into focus for someone else. Don’t be shy: your contribution makes our Online Intensives unique to you! Technical aspects We use Zoom, a web-based platform that provides conferencing and messaging on any device. One of things we like most about the platform is that it gives you the option to view all the participants at once or focus solely on the speaker. During breakout sessions, you’ll move to a private chatroom with 1 to 4 other people, depending on the exercises. Here you can enjoy the privacy to practice, deepen your understanding of the material, and apply it to your chosen application. Many coaches have discovered new opportunities based on the conversations and ideas that spring from these fun, creative gatherings. Plus, you’re only a click away from calling your instructor’s attention should you need help or additional clarification on something. We are always there for you! The Zoom conference setup allows you to attend on multiple devices, syncing between your smartphone, tablet and home or office computer. We recommend participating on the largest screen possible. This enables you to see the other participants and allows them to see you. For this reason, we do ask that you participate on a device that has an active web-cam.

          What forms of payment do you accept?

          We are able to process payment as follows:

          • Credit Card:  Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Diners Club, JCB, and Discover
          • Check: Personal or Business Checks
          • Money Orders
          • Direct Transfer
          • PayPal & PayPal Credit
          Do you offer scholarships or financial aid?

          Other than split-pay, we do not offer any additional financing options, such as financial aid or scholarships, at this time. Because of the deep value we’re committed to providing, we keep our school small. This enables us to provide the highest level of professional coach training and business mentoring possible. In this program, you won’t be swimming in a sea of thousands but rather engaging and learning alongside a select group of others who are deeply devoted to developing a highly successful business of their own. Also, we have discovered that when someone invests in their development, they are positioning themselves for success. This is one of the lessons you’ll learn to do strategically and effectively in this program. In turn, you’ll be using this same philosophy to ask your clients to invest in your services and programs. It’s worth noting that many people earn back their tuition within the first year. Some even earn 10 times their tuition (or more). The results are different for each attendee. And those who are committed to do what it takes, do succeed.

          How do I get my employer to pay for this?

          We’ve found that employers are often delighted to fund your training, especially if you position the training as a solution to what they perceive as their biggest needs and show them how you could be the next game changer within your company.  Companies throughout the world are bringing coaching into their culture as their secret weapon to success. Why not? If you’ll recall Amy – her HR department told Shirley how much less turnover there was – that’s a HUGE money- and time-saver for businesses!
