SUN is proud to offer an ICF-accredited program that continues to meet the International Coaching Federation (ICF) www.coachingfederation.org professional standards for coach education programs. Graduation from our program is on the path to fulfilling PCC (Professional Coach Certification) requirements for participant contact learning hours, mentor coaching, ethics and passing the SUN program coaching demonstration exams. SUN presence is on 5 continents. We are one of the smaller Coach education and certification programs. Our aim and commitments are for extremely high quality and successful coaches, not number of coaches.
The SUN Coach Education program has its roots in 1980 in England by leaders in Results Unlimited and brought to the US in 1987. Our coaching is holistic and based on a model of Business Management /Sports coaching. The value of our approach to coaching is revealed in Tim Gallwey’s books, The Inner Game of Tennis and The Inner Game of Work. In his tennis book, Mr. Gallwey’s approach is to focus on what happens between hits. It is the focus on “between the meeting approach” that contributes to making SUN a unique and effective coaching program. SUN also works with principles from the fields of Integrated Learning (Peter Kline), NLP (Bandler and Grinder) and The Path of Least Resistance (Robert Fritz).
