COACH TRAINING

Student CoachRICE 

What is Student CoachRICE?

CoachRICE for students is a unique and highly selective training program that uses a variety of teaching methodologies to deliver a practical skillset for you to continue your leadership journey after completing one-on-one professional coaching, also known as Activation. You will develop your personal leadership skills as well as the ability to support leadership development in others. This non-credit course, accredited by the International Coaching Federation (ICF) will equip you to become a more collaborative, creative and compassionate leader by increasing your self-awareness and growing your listening and communication skills. In summary, you will gain leadership coaching skills that can be applied in multiple contexts.

Students who successfully complete the course will receive a Rice Certificate of Achievement and will earn the 70 hours of coach-specific training required for the ICF's Associate Certified Coach (ACC) application.
