CFI’s PGPEC attracts some of the country’s most distinguished and successful leaders, HR heads, entrepreneurs, practitioners and professionals from different walks of life with a median work experience of 25 years.
Given the experience and expertise of running 25 consecutive batches of this flagship programme over the past 12 years, CFI’s PGPEC truly stands out.
The Post Graduate Programme in Executive Coaching (PGPEC) consists of five elements:
Participants invest a significant amount of time in preparatory efforts before they arrive for the learning events. This effort includes preparatory reading, exercises to develop skill concepts and completion of select psychometric tools.
There are two learning events of four days duration each, spread across two months. These learning events are experiential in nature and provide participants with self-awareness skills, perspectives and process know-how for their coaching practice. The learning events cover the following:
Each participant undertakes two supervised coaching engagements under the supervision of a senior CFI coach spread over an eight-month period. The internship is intended to help participants gain an acceptable level of proficiency in handling a coaching engagement.
The Supervisor Coach acts as an extended CFI resource and helps participants gain mastery over the CFI coaching process and competencies.
CFI’s course directors provide participants with continuous feedback. This feedback helps participants deepen their competencies, make course corrections and develop the confidence to undertake paid coaching engagements.
Participants who attend all the learning events, complete their internship and reviews and submit the required documents are invited to participate in a public viva voce. The assessment panel of CFI’s Graduate School of Coaching evaluates the participant’s level of competence and readiness to practice coaching and on that basis certifies them as an Executive Coach.
Graduates of the PGPEC are invited to become members of CFI and avail of a range of professional development and practice development benefits which help them establish their professional practice and stay connected with a community of like-minded professionals.
CFI welcomes to this programme, heads of organizations, CEOs, CXOs, CHROs, senior functional heads, accomplished professionals and consultants in the coaching and human development fields with demonstrated competence, acknowledged respect and credibility, and most importantly, a serious commitment to making coaching their profession, and a way of life.
