Have questions before joining? I’ve got answers!
Yes! This mastery program gives you the opportunity to be certified as a mastery method coach. We also have coaches who choose to take this program for their own personal development.
If I have coaching clients, do I still need a certiﬁcation?
You have the option to get certified through this program, but you can take it as an advanced training as well.
The main reason this program was designed was to have a place where coaches learn how to deeply serve their clients and embody their own transformation, while starting or scaling their businesses with more ease.
What kind of coach is this for?
This program is designed for new coaches who want to shortcut the learning curve to be good coaches and experienced coaches who want new tools to coach deeper and with more mastery, while having the business support to up-level faster.
It’s also for any niche and type of coach who wants to do deeper work with their clients and not just talk them through strategies that they can learn by Googling.
You can be a health coach, business coach, relationship coach or not know what your niche is and we’ll support you in choosing a niche or applying this work to your niche.
We get to the depth of what’s really holding someone back. People don’t need more information, they need transformation. So we teach you how to create change from the inside out.
We start by transforming your life, and then you learn to facilitate that in others. Then we support you in having a thriving business, no matter what stage you’re at.
Check in, if that’s you, then we’d love to have you.
What level of experience do I need as a coach to participate?
Whether you’re a brand new coach with no experience, a seasoned coach, or have been coaching but still resist identifying yourself as a coach, this program is for you.
The world is craving masterful coaches who truly understand their craft, have put in the work, and who embody change. While anyone can call themselves a coach, it’s those who have a mastery of coaching who will sustain in this competitive industry.
And if you want to be one of them, then I invite you to join us!
Will I need to participate in person or is it a virtual experience?
This program is a mix of training modules and exercises that you can do at your own pace, with up to three live bonus coaching calls a week. So while you can participate virtually from anywhere in the world, you’re also completely held and supported throughout this entire certification. This isn’t a passive experience — it’s interactive, experiential, engaging, and designed for those who want to truly learn, practice, and implement these coaching tools to create a powerful, impact-driven business.
What is the investment for the program?
The investment for the program varies depending on when you enroll. The earlier you enroll, the better pricing you get. We love to reward action takers!
Are there scheduled times I need to be available, or is this a self-paced program I can work on when it best fits my schedule?
Most of the trainings you can watch on your own at your own pace. If you’re going for certification, there are two calls a week to attend, and we offer two different call times (10 AM or 5 PM PST) to accommodate schedules. But I recommend you attend live — especially because I’m teaching you in real-time how to use these coaching tools to facilitate transformation. ;)
Yes. All calls are recorded and will be available in your private membership site.
How many hours per week will I be investing?
If you’re participating in the Institute of Coaching Mastery for the certification, you can expect to spend about 5 hours a week on the program. Pretty simple, right?! We get right to the good stuff.
Will I be working in a group, or doing this by myself?
Both! There are certain parts of the certification that are perfect to do on your own time (like the training modules, meditations, embodiment practices, visualizations, self-reflection questions).
And because working in a group is a powerful container for a professional training like this, you’ll also have large group coaching calls, small group wisdom circles to unpack and go deeper (so you can fully be seen and celebrated in your leadership), and one-to-one calls with peers where you give and receive coaching each week. All types of learners are supported here!
Will I get support from Alyssa?
Absolutely! This is a very hands-on program and Alyssa will be coaching and providing support every step of the way.
We also have additional mentor coaches to provide extra support regularly in smaller cohorts weekly, so you have up to 3 optional live calls a week to ensure you stay on track and are held throughout the program.
I’ve done a lot of training. How is this different? Will it be helpful for me?
There is no training out there like this one. We are not just training you to be masterful at coaching, we are training you to embody the work yourself first and have a massively successful business, too.
My intention is to support you to have the skills to become a LEADER in the industry, while also transforming the lives of your clients.
I have been through every stage of growing a coaching business, both online marketing as well as offline marketing high ticket sales and I’ve designed this program so that you can choose your own adventure and design a business around what lights you up based on the stage you’re at. This way it’s aligned for you to have a long career, but also because when you do what you love, you can scale with grace and serve people in a profoundly powerful and transformational way.
If you want to make a deeper impact and/or expand your impact to reach more people, this is a no-brainer.
What if I’m already in a program? I’m worried about time…
You are held for an entire year in this program, but once we are full, doors close and there won’t be another chance to get in for an entire year… last time doors opened, it sold out in 8 days!
If you want to get certified, plan for around 5 hours a week for everything between training videos, demos, meditation, practice sessions, and coaching calls with Alyssa, directly.
If you don’t want to get certified, and just want to take this as an advanced training to help you do the work and be a better coach, you can choose the level of commitment that works for you. There is flexibility. This is designed so you can do it from anywhere in the world and at various time zone options. We have either a 10am PST or 5pm PST option for live calls.
When you want something, you make time and show up for it. If you want a completely different business that isn’t just transforming people’s lives, but actually growing, and that’s not something you’re seeing right right now in your business, DO NOT WAIT, APPLY NOW.
I’m a new coach / trying to decide if coaching is for me. Should I wait to take this?
I have designed this for brand new coaches with no experience and seasoned ones who want to uplevel themselves and gain new tools (like embodiment work and a number of other modalities). I’ve developed, tested, and PROVEN 18 years worth of transformative tools. What I will teach you is the best of the best and will benefit a coach at any level.
I’m already so busy! Won’t this just add more to my plate?
You can take this program without the intention of getting certified, and do it at a much easier pace. I find most coaches are overwhelmed, and it’s feedback that you need to do something different. Being scattered won’t help you serve at your deepest capacity as a coach. You need to slow down and get strategic.
What are the requirements for me to be certified?
There are two routes you can take inside this program: participation for your own development, or certification. If you’re getting certified, there are various requirements such as program participation, weekly assignments, and coaching implementation in order to graduate. You can find a full breakdown of requirements here
Is this an accredited school?
Yes! The Institute for Coaching Mastery is accredited by the ICF (International Coach Federation).
If you complete the ICM program and obtain your ICM Certification, you will earn Continuing Coach Education hours (CCEs) that you can apply towards maintaining or applying for your ICF credential as part of your tuition.
If you would like apply for any level of certification with the ICF (ACC, PCC or MCC), there are additional requirements, including mentoring hours, that the ICF requires (so it's an additional investment).
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to learn more about that.
The ICF is here to raise the standards and best practices, upholding and promoting ethical coaching worldwide.
Is there an additional fee to get certified?
Nope! Your investment in the program covers everything.
Are continuing education hours required to keep my certification?
No, once you’re certified in the Coaching Mastery Method, you’re certified!
What is the difference with this program compared to Mastery for Coaches or the Mastermind?
Mastery for Coaches is a 5-week, do-it-yourself business course. Institute for Coaching Mastery is a year-long, in-depth certification program with Live weekly calls, the chance to become trained as a masterful coach and get certified. It includes coach training + business training plus direct coaching from Alyssa on group calls.
Alyssa also occasionally runs a mastermind program (currently closed till 2022). The mastermind is focused on mindest + sales + strategy. There’s no coach training involved so we don’t certify students. The investment to be part of the mastermind is 2x the investment for the coaching certification program and is recommended for business owners making 6 figures.
