Coach Training & Certification Program
If you think about it, the majority of organizational development coaches work at the level of people, teams, and culture. Still fewer work at the level of strategy, operational excellence, and OKRs. Elite coaches, however, also work at the deeper levels of Structure and Process to catalyze total organizational transformation for their clients.
If you are a leadership and organizational development coach aspiring to add these deeper levels of Structural Design and Process mastery to your practice, then our Coach Training & Certification Program warrants your investigation.
With this program, you will gain a new and valuable skill set that will enable you to help your clients achieve two to three years’ worth of organizational transformation in just three to four months. This capability boosts your value as a coach and gives you a deep sense of satisfaction when you see your efforts make a systemic change in your clients.
Who Is It For?
This is an elite coaching program. To qualify, you must have already have completed the Level 1 Coach Training & Certification Program and have an existing successful coaching practice and credentials. Or, you may be a former C-suite executive looking to transition into leadership and organizational development coaching after a successful exit. Most importantly, you must be a systems thinker who thrives at helping others to be successful.
How Does It Work?
We are big believers in learning by doing. In this program, Organizational Physics founder and head coach Lex Sisney will mentor you as you coach your client through the complete Designed to Scale coaching program.
This means that you are the sole point of contact for your client and that we remain backstage, unless you request us to work directly with your client and we accept. This initial training program lasts three to four months, which is enough time for you to implement the full Designed to Scale program within your first client and to see early results.
Following this initial training program, should you choose to continue, you will be enrolled in the Designed to Scale Coach-Level Membership tier. Through this program, you will receive ongoing mentorship and support from Lex as you work directly with more clients. Once you have successfully implemented the full program with three client companies in total, you can elect to take the Certification Exam.
Throughout the program, we assign reading and reflection exercises, have regularly scheduled mentoring sessions, and are available to answer your client-specific questions and scenarios. We also seek to have a lot of fun while doing it.
This program includes everything you need to become a world-class leadership and organizational development coach. It includes education and training on:
- How to use all Organizational Physics Pro Tools
- How to quickly change an organizational structure without causing a lot of disruption
- How to ensure optimal role fit of existing staff and new hires
- How to read and interpret PSIU Assessments
- How to read and understand an Entropy Map to drive operational excellence
- How to set the right lifecycle stage strategy using the Strategy Map and Top-Level OKRs
- How to run an effective Strategic Execution Team Process
- How to run a world-class Strategic Alignment Workshop
- How to run an effective Cascading Objectives (OKRs) process
- How to design an effective organizational health metrics dashboard
- How to drive smoother strategic execution at scale
- How to market and grow your coaching practice
How Much Does It Cost?
One-time training fee: There is a one-time coach training and certification fee. Please contact us for pricing information. This fee includes one year of complementary access to our Coach-level membership program.
Ongoing fees: To remain in the program after the first year, you must maintain a Coach-level membership, which costs the same as a Pro-level membership with the additional benefit that, as a coach, you receive a 50% discount on any additional credit purchases that you need to work with more clients beyond the first one.
How Long Does It Take?
You should budget nine to twelve months to complete the full Coach Training & Certification program. Here’s how that breaks down.
Months 1 to 3: The initial training period, where we mentor you to work with your first client to take them through the full Designed to Scale program. If your client needs a bit more time to digest new concepts, that’s fine. We work to results, not the calendar.
Months 3 to 12: During the remainder of this program, we continue to provide you with mentorship and support as you work with more clients and master your craft.
Once you have successfully coached three clients total with our mentorship and support, you can now elect to take the full Organizational Physics Coaching Certification Exam. If you pass, you will receive a certificate of completion and you will be able to call yourself a Certified Organizational Physics Coach.
If you cannot successfully complete at least three clients within twelve to eighteen months of starting the program, you will not qualify to take the certification exam.
How Much Can I Earn?
As an independent contractor, you set your own rates. You should expect to charge a minimum of $35K+ USD for the types of services you can offer your clients in this program.
What Happens Afterward
The spirit of this program is to “teach you how to fish.” Meaning, once you have completed the full program, you shouldn’t need much support from us because you will have become a master of the craft. That said, as long as you are a Coach-level member, you will be able to take advantage of the 50% credit discount as well as additional training and support.
