Program Overview                               ICF ACTP

Created and developed by our center's Leading to Well-Being education experts, the Professional Certificate in Leadership Coaching for Organizational Well-Being program is designed specifically for business professionals striving for positive change in team and organizational culture. Greater organizational well-being results in higher levels of employee engagement, increased productivity, and reduced healthcare costs. Leadership coaching is a powerful framework used to engage employees and their organizations to reach optimal results. Coaching ignites well-being in individuals, teams, and organizations by enabling leaders to uncover potential that might otherwise go untapped.

Leaders of organizations are becoming increasingly aware of the value of coaching skills in the management of change within their organizations. Astute leaders recognize that the rate of change is increasing in a globally interconnected marketplace. Accordingly, coaching skills have become an essential element of a leader’s competencies.   

The Mason coaching focus -- led by our outstanding leadership coaching team -- emphasizes strengths-based approaches and methodologies. Our transformative practices deepen self-awareness, develop coaching presence, and facilitate organizational well-being. This experiential program has a competency and researched-based curriculum that aligns with the International Coach Federation (ICF) requirements and coaching competencies.  

Key Objectives

  • Identify the intersections between coaching, resilience, and results
  • Learn key strategies for individual and organizational well-being
