LEAP Coach Certification
Becoming a qualified LEAP coach takes training, experience, and time. LEAP coaches are qualified because they have: completed their own LEAP plans; completed a LEAP Training of Trainers Course; co-moderated LEAP experiences, and worked through a rigorous evaluation process. And most importantly, LEAP coaches must use their own lives as examples when explaining Steps. Coaches must share their “stuff” too. In live LEAP experiences, the facilitator/coach juggles a multitude of tasks—from staying on top of complex emotional issues, to managing group dynamics, helping clients achieve clarity and “reading” clients’ plans with them. And in both live and on-line LEAPs, the coach not only interacts with all clients, but holds individual, scheduled consultations or video calls with each person. Coaches ask questions to help clients sort through their issues. In fact, helping clients find clarity and direction is the primary function of the LEAP coach.
Steps in Becoming a LEAP Coach:
The first Step in becoming a LEAP Coach is to complete your own ten-step LEAP plan. This may be done live, or on line. Then, once you have done a plan and have decided to become a LEAP Coach, you:
- Participate in the “So You Want to be a LEAP Coach?” survey on the TAP website www.tap-trainingassociatespacific.com
- Go through the 30 hour LEAP Coach Training of Trainers on line in which you practice the Steps on a “client” of your choice;
- Co-facilitate a live LEAP workshop with a Certified LEAP Coach;
- Are observed by a Certified LEAP Coach conducing your own live LEAP workshop;
- Are monitored by a Certified LEAP Coach conducting a “LEAP YOURSELF” workshop on line.
