The Next Generation of Coaching has Arrived…
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.
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.
Curriculum Focus Areas
Authentic Leadership, Life Transition, Relationship, Career, Mindfulness, Energy & Consciousness
Intimate Interactive Learning
Each class session begins with an overview and explanation of that module’s lesson, followed by interactive discussion of real-life scenarios (shared by both instructor and students) that illustrate the topic, and thought-provoking and fun experiential exercises. We are anti-PowerPoint! In addition, students regularly participate in in-class practice coaching as a way to solidify their personal experience and understanding of the material covered.
Since many coaches-in-training have full-time jobs and otherwise hectic lives, multiple semi-monthly cohorts are offered throughout the year to meet the scheduling needs of the students enrolled.
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.
