You are in the final interview for that position, and you are asked, “What is your experience with coaching?” or “What do you know about the coaching process?” You know just enough to come up with an adequate response, but lacked enough detail to communicate that you really know your stuff.

Or, as you are looking for new opportunities coaching is showing up more and more as a position requirement, coaching is a more and more requested or preferred skill set. Your organization may ask you to include coaching as part of a professional development program and want you to coach participants. Your organization may ask you to hire and manage external credentialed coaches for employees.

Coaching Essentials for Non-Coaches is for individuals who are not credentialed coaches and who want to understand more about coaching, learn and practice some coaching basics, or who manage external coaches and really want to ensure your organization is getting a return on its coaching investment.

Topics include:

  • Understanding What Coaching Is and Isn’t

  • Coaching as an Organizational Strategy

  • Creating the Coaching Environment

  • Critical Coaching Skills

  • Use of Assessments in Coaching

  • Best Practices Working with External Coaches

  • And LOTS of practice with coaching skills

Join us for this full day certificate program! Lunch included. 

Early bird pricing expires October 16!


 Dr. Bernadette Costello
Managing Partner for BCC Consulting

Dr. Bernadette Costello is the Managing Partner for BCC Consulting. The foundation of her coaching and consulting practice is “You are Exactly Where You Are Supposed To Be.” Affirming where you are is the first step in any transformation. Transformation is like looking into a labyrinth: a path for discovery, understanding & clarity. One way in & one way out-there are no dead ends. That symbolism expresses Bernadette’s approach to coaching, consulting, learning and the sacred space created with clients to support their journey.

Bernadette has over 25 years of talent development, coaching, consulting, and leadership experience in human resources and talent development in the public, non-profit, and higher education sectors. She is also an adjunct faculty member in the George Mason University’s School of Business and Schar School of Policy and Government. She is certified in several assessment tools which include Myers Briggs, DiSC, EQi, and Appreciation in the Workplace MBA.

Bernadette has served as President for the Metro DC Chapter of the Association of Talent Development (ATD), as Chair of the ATD Leader’s Conference Program Advisory Committee and was a member of ATD’s National Advisors for Chapters. She has served on other professional organizations in leadership and volunteer roles with Virginia CUPA (Colleges and Universities Personnel Association), and the International Personnel Management Association (IPMA). Bernadette received a Bachelor of Social Work from Southern Illinois University, a Masters in Public Administration from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and a doctorate in Higher Education from George Mason University. She is an ACC certified coach, an Energy Leadership Index Master Practitioner and holds a SHRM-SCP certification.
