The Next Generation of Coaching has Arrived!
RCA offers the FIRST and ONLY ICF-approved coach training in the world for Authentic Leadership
RALEIGH COACHING ACADEMY proudly offers the first and only globally recognized professional coach training certification program designed specifically to foster Authentic Leadership. The research concepts called upon in the program are the sciences of energy, mindfulness, consciousness, neurogenesis, positive psychology, and quantum physics, combined with the art of being human.
Customized Coach Training Cohorts
The Right Fit
One of the biggest challenges aspiring coaches face in choosing the right coach training program is being sure that the curriculum’s focus will be aligned with the type of coaching they wish to offer. Raleigh Coaching Academy was created with this in mind. Rather than delivering the same static content repeatedly, we cover foundational material, followed by facilitated discussion tailored to meet the specific needs of the students enrolled.
Intimate Class Size
RCA limits each cohort to a maximum of eight students in order to ensure that every student receives the time and attention necessary to be transformed in the course of the training. We have a minimum of two fully ICF credentialed faculty, and one or two additional faculty, on staff at all times. Our intentionally small classes and high faculty-to-student ratio are how and why we are able to keep the program so short!
We pride ourselves on being anti-PowerPoint! Each session begins with an overview and explanation of that module’s lesson, followed by interactive discussion of real-life scenarios that illustrate the topic. Class consists of a mixture of thought-provoking and fun experiential exercises, as well as in-class practice coaching, designed to solidify an individual and group understanding of the material covered.
Raleigh Coaching Academy’s Authentic Leadership Coaching Certification (CALC) program is recognized by the International Coach Federation (ICF) as Approved Coach Specific Training Hours (ACSTH), which provides students with 94 training hours towards obtaining their ICF credential. The mission of RCA is to help foster coaches who are passionate, driven and capable of positively transforming the world around us through their authentically inspired practice.

RCA guiding principles for learning:
We honor the individual uniqueness that each participant brings to the group, which contributes to creating the overall class dynamic.
We respect the power of each student’s perspective and contribution to the class discussion, and facilitate a structured yet organic flow of collaborative learning.
We believe that participants are more likely to push themselves to succeed when they achieve a sense of inspiration. We foster an atmosphere designed to encourage heart-centered inspirational learning.
Don’t ask yourself what the world needs; ask yourself what makes you come alive. And then go and do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.
– Harold Whitman
