The Fast Track to ICF Credential program is an amazing journey as you prepare for a coaching career.  The coach-facilitators are excellent resources and encouraging as we all worked our way through the modules of the program - a truly inspirational and educational experience.

I have been a career and work life "coach" for many decades.  I have made my living this way and supported myself and my son as a coach.  I thought, "what can I learn after operating successfully for all this time... before the ICF was even rolling?"  My answer now is... A LOT.  I now have a common language with my peers, feel that I am a part of something bigger and know that I AM a coach at heart and that has been a long desire but I have really worked primarily as an Instructor, Mentor, and Consultant.  It is nice to be able to put language to what I have done, what I believe and who I am.

Coaching Out of the Box® has helped broaden my perspective, provided me new skills, allowed me to build a network of fellow coaches, and created a safe space for me to practice coaching and to receive extremely practical feedback on how to improve as a coach.

I have gained the knowledge and skill to be confident in myself as a professional coach.  The program is highly professional, and very suportive.  It's not just a list of courses - it's a community.

In February 2017 I began the Fast Track to ICF Credential.  Each instructor I encountered was gifted, kind, skilled, wonderful and patient. Coaching Out of the Box® has an amazing program that I would recommend to anyone looking to pursue coaching. It has been life changing both professionally and personally. We are expanding our coaching program within our institution and will be enrolling more of our staff soon so that we can grow and expand the coaching culture even further.  Thank you Alison and team for an amazing experience!

What a life changing experience I have had by completing the Fast Track to ICF Credential offered by Coaching Out of the Box®! With the support of Alison Hendren and her team, I am now well on my path to building a strong, viable coaching practice. Alison's expertise and continuous development of new webinar support and coaching material, strengthens and hones coaching skills to above and beyond ICF standards. I greatly appreciate the coaching connections I've made and continue to nurture through collaborative, innovative coach-approach conversations. I am eternally grateful for the professional, supportive coaching environment Alison has created that I am now a part of. A big THANK YOU, and your Fast Track to ICF Credential, in its entirety, has my full recommendation.

Coaching Out of the Box® gave me much more than what I expected. After the first couple sessions of the Fast Track to ICF Credential I was thinking, wow I've learned so much already and was really excited about what I would know by the end of the program. It didn't disappoint, I feel I'm a much better coach and understand coaching in a way that I never imagined I would. Excited about moving people forward with my new found understanding.

The Fast Track to ICF Credential proved to be extremely valuable both from a professional and personal development stand point. The program immerses you into the world of coaching in a hands on and very practical way. The facilitators were professional, friendly, extremely helpful and passionate about ensuring that each of us found our full potential as coaches. While initially the pace of the program and the level of personal development that is required in order to be an effective coach was unexpected and intimidating, going through this program with a cohort of others on the fast track path and with the support and encouragement of the facilitators, I feel like I learned, practiced and excelled at coaching and created a network of friends in the coaching world that will benefit all of us as we launch into coaching in our professional lives. I would highly recommend Coaching Out of The Box® and if you are looking to get your credential, jump in and take the Fast Track option - you won't regret it!

The Advanced Coaching Skills Practicum is a powerful tool to self discovery for coaches. While practicing each week either as a coach, coachee or an observer, I had multiple eye opener moments and deeper understanding to what to look for in order to be more encouraging and trusting to the coachee. It has been a fun and excellent class.

Highly informative and constructive feedback during our coaching practice sessions.
