The Wayfinder certification process will give you the opportunity to become as comfortable coaching as you are speaking your native language. Facilitated group coaching, individual mentoring, and personal feedback will complete your training as a Wayfinder Master Coach.
Your progress throughout the course will be evaluated as part of your certification. This will be reflected in your progress toward your own ideal coaching practice, as well as your fluency in using the tools.
Certification will consider:
Once you become a Certified Wayfinder Master Coach, you will be eligible to be considered for teaching MBI-sponsored classes, including Continuing Education for Coach Hub, and becoming a Wayfinder Life Coach Training Instructor. Being a Wayfinder Master Coach, though, does not guarantee these opportunities. You may also propose your own ideas to Martha Beck Inc.
Once you’ve finished the training, you will also receive a certificate of completion verifying eligibility for application for International Coach Federation (ICF) certification at the Associate Certified Coach (ACC) or Professional Certified Coach (PCC) level.*
*While Wayfinder Master Coach Training is not currently ICF-accredited, we will be working with the ICF to become an Accredited Coach Training Program (ACTP) beginning with the Spring 2021 training. We fully anticipate our program will complete the review process and be accredited at the ACTP level in 2022.
What does this mean for you? Anyone who enrolls in the Spring 2021 program will have the coach training and mentoring hours that they need to apply for certification by the ICF, either at the Associated Certified Coach (ACC) level or the Professional Certified Coach (PCC), level once the program has been accredited.
Why would you want ICF certification? Professionals with coaching skills are increasingly sought after in the business and nonprofit sectors. Becoming an ICF-accredited coach can open up opportunities in areas like leadership development, executive coaching, professional development, and team-building. In some sectors, your ICF credential can be a requirement for hiring, similar to how a CPA (certified public accountant) is treated in an accountancy firm.
