What Students Say

  • "The coaching training has enriched me personally - it's greatly expanded my horizons and my intercultural understanding and opened up new perspectives for my career. Each and every week I apply what I have learned in the advanced vocational training Intercultural Coach." - Christoph Scharnweber – Involved in International Development Work and Project Management
  • "It was a good mixture of creative work, practical hands on tools and knowledge transfer. The materials were useful and helpful, as well as the practical content... The methods very much helped me to begin to coach immediately." -Armie Friesen
  • "Very happy – can’t recommend this course highly enough. It is worth every penny." (Penny Bakewell, SIM Ghana Director)
  • I have loved the interactive style and group work in this course. Even using Zoom breakout rooms (by necessity) has worked well for putting principles we have been learning to immediate use, so as to learn by doing, so to speak. It has also been necessary to do a lot of inner work ourselves, in order to know from the inside what the coaching process is all about. It’s been about our own personal growth as much as about learning techniques, and that is another aspect of the course that I have deeply appreciated. (Christine Paterson FleldPartner International)
  • The Intercultural Coaching Course has opened my eyes to the world of asking questions in order to help people move forward in various ways. It’s very helpful to be able to think about this for intercultural settings. I love the interaction and creativity used to teach this course, and I am enjoying being able to try this out in my practice coaching sessions. (anonymous)
  • I really enjoy the ICC course, it challenges me to be very aware of my own cultural perspectives while in contact with clients from other cultures. I have learned so many tools and questions to ask in order to walk alongside clients dealing with issues and guide the client through relevant options and solutions to resolve the issue. It was also amazing to experience how the students on this course came to trust each other and to have so much fun in practising together in small groups. (anonymous).
  • 'Are you are wanting to discover more about coaching? Are you already involved in Intercultural Coaching as a beginner or for many years? The Intercultural Coaching Course is a must for YOU! The fascinating and practical tools for crossing cultures successfully will enable you to work more effectively as a coach or a leader. Discover invaluable skills, and enjoy interaction with like minded life - long learners on the cutting edge of change and Kingdom building'.

    Read more about the modules

Every module is offered once a year. It is, therefore, possible to finish the training within one year or to stretch it over a longer period of time.

Each module consists of compulsory on-site teaching. Modules 1 & 2, 3 & 4, and 5 & 6 are each taught together over 3 intensive weeks. Additional peer supervision/tutor consultation precedes intensive week 2 (Modules 3 & 4) and intensive week 3 (Modules 5 & 6).

Participants are free to start the training with either module 1 or 2. Modules 3, 4, and 5 can be taken in any order. Module 6 is the last module and builds upon the content of the first five modules. It has to be attended as the final module.
