ICF certified coach training
Navgati offers two ICF approved coach training programs: Leaders develop Leaders and Transformational Coaching. Both these programs take 4 months or more to complete, with participants investing approximately two days each month. People could do one program with us and apply for the ACC credential or do both programs and apply for the PCC credential.

The vision
Navgati’s vision is to systematically develop coaches, deepen their skills and prepare them for the ICF credential. We envision ourselves to be a one-stop organization that that enables people to reach MCC levels.

Our programs maximize opportunities for people to coach, be coached and receive supervision on coaching. We pride ourselves on the personal support that we give to our participants in both building skills and in getting ready for the ICF credential.

The Lead instructors for both programs are Aruna Gopakumar, PCC and Sunitha Krishnamurthi, PCC. The programs are delivered in English.

Strengths of the programs

  • Limited class size providing ample opportunity for individualized attention
  • Individual practice sessions for each participant with supervision, followed by feedback based on the ICF competencies.
  • Working understanding of a variety of frameworks and models (from Transactional Analysis, Neuro-Linguistic Programing and Positive Psychology)
  • Adequate time in the workshop on reflection and peer learning
  • Spaced learning that allows participants to practice and bring back their experience to the group for processing
  • Flexibility with dates if people have to miss a session. They could attend the missed dates with subsequent batches.

Intended participants for both programs

  • Senior leaders who play the role of coaches within organisations and others aspiring to be professional coaches.
  • Practicing coaches seeking certification from the International Coach Federation
  • Experienced leaders and human resource professionals seeking to expand their portfolio of skills.

Educational Philosophy
Our goal is to make the programs as experiential as possible by

  • Creating a safe learning environment based on mutual and self respect
  • Modeling of trust, openness and commitment by the facilitator
  • Valuing the experience of participants
  • Working with practical or real examples as much as possible
  • Using here-and-now data in applying learning
  • Providing ample opportunity in the program for practicing the newly acquired skills
  • Actively engaging the learner in the learning process;

Coaching philosophy
We view coaching as a process that helps people maximize their potential. It is a goal-oriented conversation about growth and change. Coaching is more about asking the right questions than telling people what to do.

Underpinning the coaching process are the principles guiding effective adult learning. These include the recognition that adult learners are autonomous, have a foundation of life experiences and knowledge from which they are able to generalize, have a readiness to learn and wish to be treated with respect.

The relationship between the coach and the client is fundamentally important as a source for change. It is through the relationship and the environment set by the coach, that the client is able to explore his own experience and choose options for the future.

Requirements students must meet to enter the program
Participants must be graduates with a working experience of at least 5 years.
