Peoples' strengths take them to leadership positions, but only by addressing weaknesses — those obstacles that prevent leaders from getting to the next level of success — can they continue their way to the top. Sherpa coaches are skilled at turning weaknesses into new strengths. Like Sherpa mountain guides, Sherpa coaches guide, advise and assist, allowing leaders to reach the summit through their own skill and will.

Whether you're looking for a new career, or want to enhance your work as a consultant or coach, this program will help you become a top-level executive coach. Working with published experts, you will master the six-phase "Sherpa" coaching process and learn the skills and techniques necessary to enable others to achieve professional success. A designation of Executive Coaching Certification is granted upon successful completion of the 60-hour program.

What is a Sherpa Coach?
The model for the Sherpa executive coach is the Himalayan guide. Of all mountain escorts, Sherpas are the most knowledgeable. They help climbers choose a course and reach the summit. In the same way, Sherpa executive coaches advise, provide tools, and share knowledge of the best path for their clients to follow.
