Helen Attridge, Founder & President of the Academy of Leadership Coaching & NLP (ALCN) is pleased to announce that plans are now underway for the 2017 International Coaching Federation approved Summer Intensive Coach Training program. The event, which normally takes place in July and August, is slated to start several weeks earlier from June 11 – 30, 2017. ALCN President Helen Attridge notes that the change in programming dates was designed to accommodate individuals who wanted to attend, but did not want to take time away from summer vacation plans.

As was the case during the 2016 programming, the three-week intensive coach training program again will be held at Sonoma State University, which is located in the heart of California’s beautiful wine country, about 45 miles north of San Francisco and just a 30 minute drive from Bodega Bay. Students will enjoy living in the Sonoma State University resident halls, which were recognized by the Princeton Review as “dorms like palaces.” Additionally, the campus was recently rated one of the most beautiful in the United States. It is a sought-after venue for workshops and seminars, combining state-of-the-art facilities with a park-like campus, fantastic gym and outdoor swimming pools. Summer Intensive attendees can choose the residential option which includes overnight accommodation and 3-meals a day and enjoy this beautiful space.

In addition to covering the basics of the ICF coaching methods, the ALCN Coach Training Program will immerse students in skills and tools needed to be successful as a NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) Certified Coach. The program is designed to help both existing coaches and students wishing to become a coach, gain a clearer understanding of how to effectively utilize NLP within their coaching practice.

In addition, the 2016 Summer Intensive training included excellent insight on mindfulness from Celia Manrique De Lara, an executive coach, gestalt therapist and yoga teacher. During the program, Celia lead students in daily mindfulness exercises as well as yoga classes every other day over the three weeks. Stay tuned to hear more about the unique opportunities offered during the 2017 Training.
