Growth Coach Program
What is the Laser Focus Growth Coach Certification Program?
The Laser Focus Growth Coach Program is a 12 Week Coaching Intensive comprised of webinars, modules, exercises and unlike many online programs, our program includes one on one imprint sessions with your Master Coach.
Additionally, rather than focus on memorization, our program is about you mastering the art of coaching and to be able to apply what you’ve learned in your own coaching process.
Our team at Laser Focus believes the real test is the application of the tools that you are given. That is why we design the program so that you take it as a coach but also from the client’s perspective.
In other words, you will be applying the tools to your own life in the process so that you have first-hand experience and can then better apply it to your clients.
Many of our coaches also revisit the material more than once as needed as they work with clients and have ongoing access to their Master Coach and our business operations staff.
Finally, while our program is nonacademic and more about owning and understanding a process, we do believe it’s vital to demonstrate a mastery of coaching modalities. As such, a verbal exam is provided at the conclusion of the 12-week certification program.

Is Accreditation a must?
First, we must clarify a common misconception.
The term “accreditation” is applied to a program, while the term “certification” is applied to an individual.
Graduates of an approved program become a certified coach. Accreditation assures you, the prospective student, that the program content has been assessed and reviewed for its inclusive content of the eleven core competencies and ethical standards as recognized and adopted by most world-wide coaching organizations.
Are there any hidden program costs?
No, there are no hidden costs.
Your course includes everything you need to successfully complete your coaching Certification with a guarantee of no hidden extras.

Is there one coaching model I must adhere to?
We firmly believe that the face of coaching is an ever-evolving profession. We do not favor any particular Coaching model over another.
Our program, however, will teach you the accepted ‘standard of practice’ model. We encourage our students to continue to develop his or her discipline as they so choose based on their particular background, strengths and interests by joining our ongoing Coaching Toolkit Expansion Sessions (CTE’s). We typically offer these twice a year.
Do Coaches specialize?
Although many Coaches prefer to keep their options open, a great many coaches do choose to specialize and focus on a particular niche’ in the marketplace.
Business, organizational, health and fitness, relationship, career, confidence, self-esteem, and finances are just a few areas of specialty that we can mention here.
The list is endless and you are only held by your imagination and your interests. Deciding on if a specialty niche is right for you, and discovering just what that niche should be is part of your learning experience in the program.
Once I graduate, must I join a Governing Body?
To date, there is still no ‘one’ accepted regulatory body for the life coaching professional.
How will I be graded while doing my program?
Our purpose is not so much as to ‘grade you’ as it is to provide you with the right tools and the knowledge of how to use them correctly.
