Environmental Design Coaching

Expanding Awareness of Energy Patterns
The results we achieve in life are a function of our thoughts, feelings and actions - each a powerful form of energy.  But often these powerful energy patterns or frameworks do not serve us; in fact they often take us directly away from what we are trying to do!  Mixed emotions and inner conflicts abound in any truly meaningful objective and the masterful coach must know how to identify these patterns and then help the client transcend them.  In fact, transcending our patterns from the past- the essence of growth - is the primary purpose of our desires.  This program was designed by CoachVille CEO Dave Buck
3 modules

Evaluate Progress
Evaluating progress is where the coach and client assess the current reality. Sometimes celebration is called for. Other times, we have to try to understand what is going wrong and learn from it. Sometimes minor course corrections are needed. Other times a major overhaul is called for. Reading the situation accurately is the challenge for the coach.

How it works...

  • First you register for the program!!  The complete schedule for the April 2006 teleclass and live workshop programs is listed below.
  • Then you will receive a phone call from our member services team who will walk you through the web site and show you how to use the on-line learning platform.
  • If you choose the live teleclass option you are given a telephone bridge number to call for each session.  Just call the number at the appropriate time and you'll be connected with the instructor and your fellow students.  Our telephone bridges are all located in the US.  Normal long distance charges apply.  We recommend that you obtain a fixed price long distance calling plan from your local telephone carrier.  Note: voice over IP telephone services sometimes cause problems with our bridge lines so we prefer that you use a standard phone line.
  • If you choose the live event option, you are still welcome to participate in the teleclasses. This is what we call the total immersion method. It is an incredibly robust learning environment for those with a REAL desire to learn. The dates for the 4 workshop weekends are listed below.
  • When you attend a teleclass you are given a code word to enter into the syllabus as you mark the class complete - this is how we confirm attendance requirements for graduation.  After you complete the module you complete the on-line test.  In order to graduate you must pass each test with a score of 80% or better.  If you don't pass a test you can study the material and take the test again.
  • When you complete all of the 25 modules (remember, at least 100 of the 125 class hours must completed via live teleclass or live workshop) you apply for graduation.

Is certification for you?

If are learning coach for the purposes of inspiring your team to greatness, you may not be interested in certification. But it is a worthwhile accomplishment that could be valuable to you in the future. Many professionals enjoy earning meaningful certifications and this would certainly qualify. If you plan to become a professional coach, certification is essential.

Preparing for certification...

  • When your graduation is complete you can purchase the CoachVille certification program.(currently $750)  In it you will record two coaching sessions with a real client or member of your team.  These recorded sessions will be scored independently by two certifying coaches for both 15 Coaching Proficiencies AND 11 Core Competencies of the ICF.  If your scorecard is 80% or higher you will be designated for Certification.  If you don't pass on the first try - many don't - you can submit a new set of recordings in three months for no additional charge.  Most coaches pass on the first or second attempt.
  • The International Coach Federation (ICF) is an independent certifying body for coaches with whom we are affiliated. Much of the design of our program is set to meet the requirements of an accredited coach training program (ACTP) The ICF has additional requirements for certification which you can learn by visiting Typically a professional coach will complete a coach training program and receive a certification from the school. Then they set out to meet the additional requirements of the ICF and apply when they are ready.
