ACTP stands for Accredited Coach Training Program and is a pathway that is followed by ICF approved coach training institutes, such as Erickson, to conduct programs under the accreditation (see ICF site).

The benefits of the ACTP path are: at least 14 weeks faster, more cost-effective, all-inclusive from training to final evaluation, and allows for ACC/L1, PCC/L2 and eventually MCC/L3 training.

As compared to the offer of ACSTH (Approved Coach Specific Training Hours) approved coaching providers, which only train ACC/L1, are less cost-effective, leading to a cumbersome and lengthy accreditation process, as well as extensive ICF administration.

    Coaching is a unique way to help people improve any aspect of their lives. The concept of coaching is often confused with forms of counseling, consulting, and therapy but coaching is actually very different. Coaching is future-focused. Coaching does not analyze the past but rather guides clients in their own goal setting. Coaches achieve this by asking the right kinds of questions and, most importantly, do not give advice, set goals, or take action on behalf of their clients.

    Erickson Coaching International’s methodology is solution-focused. The solution-focused coaching methodology is based on proven tools, techniques, and processes that help provide clients with the means to create truly transformational changes in their own lives. During coaching sessions, the coach and client embark on a creative partnership that aims to design and implement specific, meaningful, and measurable changes in the client’s personal and or professional life.

    The 4 Pillars of Erickson’s Solution-Focused Coaching Model

    Coaching is solution-focused. Coaching aims to move clients towards a positively framed future outcome. The coach and client do not dwell on past experiences but rather focus on what the client’s new future would look like and how the client shows up in that future vision.

    Systematic Process

    Coaching is a systematic process that helps the coach understand the client holistically. The coach assesses how proposed changes fit in with or may impact the client’s view of the world and contribution to their future vision and the bigger picture. The coach aids the client in exploring their values and how the client can find and create meaning in their life.

    Coaching is a client-centered approach and it is the role of the coach to encourage their client to trust their own inner resources. In Erickson coaching, we believe that clients are experts in their own lives and have the resources within themselves to create their unique future vision. Coaches also understand and respect their client’s values at all times and provide an advice-free zone.

    An understanding of the neuroscience of change and outstanding skills, techniques and competencies to help others reach their full potential…

    Coaching is action-oriented meaning that coaches help clients create change through specific, meaningful, inspired, and actionable steps that lead to fundamental shifts in attitude, behaviors and their desired habit formations.
