Our Student Policies
Please review our student policy below. If you have any questions, please contact us here.
Please come knowing that this is an accountable place to open up, practice, and explore. There is no wrong. We expect you to be coaching in the classroom, as well as outside of the classroom. The practice of coaching is a big piece here in your learning. In addition, you will be asked to be coached both in the classroom and in practice with your fellow participants.
Please show up for class on time, fully participating. If you will be late or need to miss a class, email your educator as soon as possible.
Come as your authentic self, open to learning. We are all learners; students and educators learning in this space together.
All sessions will be recorded and provided to participants via a password-protected Vimeo link until 30 days after the session for your convenience, however the Zoom recordings do not replace in person instruction.
If you miss a class, you will be expected to watch the video recording and email the instructor with your takeaways or questions. We discourage missing class and you may only miss a total of 6 hours of live classes during the program. After this time is missed, you will need to make up the live instruction time at an extra cost of $150/hour to make up hours missed. This is to meet the requirement of the ICF for the attendance of synchronous class time.
Everything in this class is kept between the classroom’s virtual walls. Respect your fellow participant’s privacy. Classroom materials are intended for your use as a participant. Classroom recordings must not be shared to honor the confidentiality of all participants.
