Private Establish Yourself as A Coach -Telecourse
Wednesday October 4, 11, 18, 25, 2017 @ 8pm to 10pm [Hong Kong time]

Important In-Person Session Notes

  • Homework. There will be approximately 2 hours of homework assigned during the first 4 evenings. Day 5 includes a special project which will be discussed further that evening.
  • Technology-free environment.  To maintain a distraction-free environment for all participants, computers, mobile phones and PDA’s must be turned off in the meeting room while the program is in session.
  • Attendance. Attendance is important – missing any portion of the face-to-face session will result in delaying your graduation date. Unfortunately, due to the special nature of this program, no exceptions can be made for any reason.
  • Saturday – Last Day. We will end at 5:00pm on Saturday with important closing activities. Plan on being in the event room until 5:00pm. (Contact the venue to inquire about when you will need to depart to catch your flight.) We strongly recommend that you book your flight to depart well after 8pm on Saturday to avoid stress. Our schedule is very full on Saturday and the facilitators will be unable to accommodate requests to end early.

Important Post-Event *Private Establishing Yourself as a Coach* Notes

  • Scheduled Dates. Put the Private Establishing Yourself as a Coach course dates in your calendar/diary TODAY to avoid disappointment. If you are absent from any portion of this course, course credit will not be awarded and your graduation date will be delayed. Unfortunately, due to the special nature of this program, no exceptions can be made for any reason.
  • Cohort Group. Most, if not all, students find that they want to complete their post-event Telecourse with their colleagues and instructor(s) from the face-to-face session
  • Homework. There will be approximately 2-3 hours of homework each week between Telecourse sessions. Our goal is to get you up and running as a coach as soon as possible.
  • Commitment. So, again, to avoid disappointment, please enroll in the program with a) the intention on completing all 4 post-event course sessions and b) know and agree to the fact that if you miss any session for any reason whatsoever, your graduation date will be delayed as you enroll and re-take the regular eight week (1-hour per consecutive week) Establishing Yourself as a Coach course.


The Core Essentials Fast Track Programs will be delivered by Coach U and Corporate Coach U faculty – ICF credentialed at the PCC or MCC levels. We prefer to have facilitators with a successful track record in coaching and a successful track record in the telecourse-leading environment. It is more important to us that this training program is facilitated by masterful coaches who know about training rather than masterful trainers who know nothing about coaching.
