Climate Change Coaching Mastery is a continuing coach education training course that introduces you to the fundamental themes you’re likely to encounter when coaching on the topic of climate change. You’ll join Emily and Ruma, two experienced coach facilitators from our team and up to 25 other trained coaches* for 8 live group sessions over 16 weeks.

Over the course of the curriculum you’ll discover key tools and perspectives to inspire and create climate action in your clients.

What will you get?

  • Six live 2 hour group modules covering essential topics in climate change coaching, practical coaching tools to bring the theory to life, and
    live coaching demonstrations. You’ll also learn by coaching and being coached with your cohort peers in breakout rooms.
  • Two practical 2-hour lab modules where you can roadtest your learning in a collaborative, playful environment with a real coaching client and consider how you can land climate change coaching in your business.
  • Access to our online learning hub (worth over £600) – here you can dive deeper into each topic including preparatory readings and grounding exercises for each session, reflective exercises for each module, downloadable reference sheets for key coaching tools, pre-recorded coaching demos, and additional resources to further your learning.
  • A FREE copy of our book (worth £24.99) “Climate Change Coaching – the power of connection to create climate action” by Charly Cox and Sarah Flynn which you’ll receive before the course starts, so you can arrive ready to learn.
  • Coaching assignments to deepen your learning between modules.
  • Access to video recordings of each module for six weeks after the last live session.
  • A supportive yet stretching course led by two experienced climate change coach-facilitators who will share real client experiences
  • Learn with like-minded peers in a community of practice to support bringing climate change coaching into your work.

Who is this course for?

This course is a continuing education programme for trained coaches and therapists/facilitators conversant in core coaching skills. This course does not certify you as a coach as we do not cover core coaching competencies in the curriculum. The programme is designed to teach you how to apply your existing coaching skills in the context of climate change, and deepen your coaching toolkit with approaches and techniques to have more impact with your clients.

Can’t afford our course but want to develop climate change coaching skills?

As part of our commitment to develop coaches from all over the world, we are offering 2 fee-free places on every cohort to coaches in countries normally less represented on our programmes, who want to coach people where they live.

All of our work is about putting coaching into the hands of climate leaders, to inspire action that changes systems. Climate leaders in the global south often lack that kind of support and we know that the most effective kind of support comes from someone who shares their context.

Our aim with this scholarship programme is to increase the ability and capacity of coaches in the below regions, who find it difficult to cover the costs of such a training, so they can go on to support and increase the impact of their local climate leaders.

You are eligible if you are:

  • a trained coach
  • based in Africa, Asia (excluding Japan and Korea), Latin America/Caribbean, the Pacific Islands or the Arab states
  • unable to pay for your place and able to demonstrate why that’s the case
  • coaching (or wanting to) coach climate leaders where you live and can demonstrate your commitment to using your new skills with climate leaders in your country/region after this course
