Frequently Asked Questions
What makes our Coach Training unique?
The program that we train you to use with clients has an approach with a beginning middle and ending, and it lasts 5- 6 months. We believe in sustainability, we believe that the client can learn how to get into the habit of using the thought processes we introduce, so that the client does not need to stay with the coach for a long time.
In this way, we can be of service to larger numbers of people on the planet and there is no client-coach dependency built into the process. The client program has 8 meetings with 2-3 weeks in between each meeting. Meetings last two hours. Our philosophy is that if we are talking about the most important things in a client’s life, we would like plenty of space for reflection that also allows access to the unknown and spirit to join us.
we include training in the spiritual principles underlying coaching.

Some practice time is pre-formed and others are open-ended.

up to 25 hours of the 100 can be selected by you. Because our trainers have specialties, we have pre-approved training in mindfulness, team coaching, systemic coaching, exploring your shadow, executive coaching and several others.
ALL Coach Trainers have an ICF credential. Senior Trainers have the MCC and Junior Trainers have the PCC, en route to the MCC. We are spiritually aware and include the spiritual principles underlying coaching into your training. Our Trainers go through a Coach Train-the-Trainer program that includes mentoring and supervision of their students. It takes 3 years to become a SUN Coach Trainer.
The accredited coaching training that we offer includes the ICF coaching competencies including ethics and much practice with your trainer, with colleagues-in-training, and with credentialed graduates. In SUN we also have a 5-day annual retreat, our annual learning event.
Spiritual is an acknowledgment that there is something greater than you. It means: 1. Connection with self, with another and with the whole. 2. I am responsible for my choices and not others choices. 3. The best place to live my life is in the present without worry about the past or the future.
Our way of making it easier for a student to pay for the program is to allow installments. We allow a discount if the tuition is entirely paid in advance.
