Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT IS THE APPRENTICESHIP™

Put simply, the Art of Coaching Apprenticeship™ is a highly interactive 2-day live event that is focused on social skill development in today’s coaches and leaders, as well as the science behind what constitutes more effective leadership in chaotic environments. It is the first true resource of its kind and blends research-backed presentations, small group discussion, case studies, live evaluations, breakout sessions, and personalized video breakdowns. Oh, and a bit of laughter as well given that we do try and have a bit of fun amongst the two days.

Attendees will be required to sign a waiver for participation, and will also be required to answer a few quick questions so that the material can be better customized to enhance your experience at the event. We also require those attending to keep an open mind and to ensure that you enter the two days ready to engage, laugh, learn and be receptive to any and all feedback. Titles, awards or years of experience do not exempt any of us from being open to improvement, especially in the area of communication.

WILL CEU’S BE AVAILABLE?

We will be working with a number of governing bodies to discuss CEU’s, yet allocation of CEU’s is not always under our control and is subject to the approval of various governing bodies. If an organization that you are a part of does not support CEU’s for this event, we urge you to reach out to them directly and demand that they do!

Regardless of CEU allocation, we strongly recommend you do NOT sign-up if that is your primary purpose of doing so. Coaches and leaders from all over the world who are dedicated to their craft and have signed up to continue to push themselves for the sake of those they serve. Any CEUs should just be considered a bonus.

IS THE APPRENTICESHIP™ OFFERED ONLINE?

We do offer a variety of online courses that include video, printouts, downloadable notes and even workbooks, but The Apprenticeships™ themselves are only available in person due to the high socially interactive nature of the material and experience.
