What makes LightWalker Coaching Accreditation different from others?

The LightWalker coaching programme the only accreditation we know of that works with the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual components of every client. It may sound unusual to mention "spiritual" as part of an executive coaching accreditation, but we believe every human being has a sense of purpose beyond themselves, and a striving for wholeness and contribution. That's what we mean by "spiritual."

There are LightWalker coaches who are Christians, Muslims, Hindus and who identify with other faith traditions -- or no faith tradition in particular. LightWalker coaches are non-directive, and place emphasis on vulnerability, non-judgement, empathy and truth-speaking. LightWalker coaches change lives.

How is the programme structured?

Six modules of 2-days each

Prospective coaches are expected to attend the launch on Saturday afternoon, 16 March 2024.

After that there are there are 6, two-day, live and in-person modules held on a Friday and Saturday in Melrose in Gauteng.

Coaches attend supervised triads, buddy coaching sessions and sessions with accredited mentors

Between each module, coaches will attend a supervised three-hour benchmarked triad for each coach to sharpen their skills.

Coaches will be assigned a buddy to coach and be coached by. This provides a vital opportunity to practice and integrate your skills.

Each coach is assigned a mentor, and will be coached by three separate Accredited LightWalker coaches during the year.

Group projects

Coaches will complete four group projects, all aimed at helping you integrate the skills they are learning.

LightWalker Coaching sets you up for success.

Part of the accreditation is to create your coaching brochure.

Even coaches who choose to use their coaching skills in their leadership roles are required to create a coaching brochure. This sharpens your ability to articulate exactly what your coaching contribute is to the world.

Accredited coaches are featured on the website

Coaches are invited to feature themselves on the LightWalker Coaching website. We assist coaches with setting up their own websites and booking systems. And we arrange a photo shoot with a professional photographer for the coaches who want it.

Continuing education

There are 7 CPD sessions of 2,5 hours a year as well as 5 Supervision sessions and 3 optional Masterclasses, available only to Accredited LightWalker Coaches
