Wholebeing Institute is about learning and living into our highest and best, and a coach can support that process. That’s why we have a family of courses designed specifically for coaches, supporting you as you support others.

Created for all coaches—aspiring, new, and experienced—these courses focus on building a thriving coaching practice that’s steeped in the science of human flourishing, including positive psychology, behavior change, and neuroscience.

The courses are designed to complement each other, so you can build upon skills as you take each one. Or, take one as a standalone to develop a particular area of interest. Either way, all our coaching courses have ICF continuing education credits, from core competencies to resource development.
