Lifework Coaching

True career success is not only about ‘getting into the right job’. If you approach career as a true expression of a person’s values, you’ll be able to empower clients at a deeper level instead of getting caught up in the ‘how’ of the job/business/role.

Topics Covered

Program Structure

I. 1 Day Intensive

The aim of the 1-day intensive is to open up space for students to examine their own lifework values and expression, internalizing it in order to effectively coach a client through their journey.

II. Supervision Session

Coaching supervision will support you in applying, integrating and reinforcing distinctions and techniques taught. Your supervisor will catch blind spots in your coaching and observations and provide precise feedback. It is a highly customized process that is adapted to your level and learning style.

III. Self-directed Learning

Assignments related to the module will be issued to you to further anchor in what you’ve learnt through various means. For this module, you will embark on a mini lifework/passion project and engage in peer coaching.

360 Faculty Support

CCI’s advanced coached development program supports your personal growth and development in coaching via multiple avenues


Our lead trainers lead the program training and they have at least 10 years of coach training experience and possess the qualifications and/or experience of an equivalent of a Master Certified Coach (MCC) or a Professional Certified Coach (PCC).


Supervisor coaches guide you and your small group during breakouts, practicums and self-work. They work closely with you to work on your techniques and execution. All supervisor coaches are minimally a certified Professional Certified Coach (PCC) by the ICF.


An integral part of coach training is to practice coaching on clients. All our students gain access to our client body pool – who are ‘clients’ ready to work with coaches on their personal issues. This way, our coaches get to work with real clients and clock real-world experience and hours.

Our Value Proposition

CCI’s professional coach development program supports your personal growth and development in coaching with a multi-layered faculty.


CCI’s faculty of lead trainers and mentor coaches have a cumulative over 100 years of coaching and coach training experience since 2005. The professional coach development program has been conducted in Singapore and China.


Our student relations managers will be with you ever step of the way, ensuring that you are pacing well as the program progresses. They will assist you with materials, logistics, and assist you in the journey along the way.


We keep each cohort size small. This allows close supervision by our faculty , yet at the same time allows for optimal interaction and diversity. CCI boasts one of the lowest faculty-to-student ratio in the region and this ensures your progress and growth as a coach.

Our Testimonies

Hear what our students have to share about their experience.

Really enjoyed the insightful activities done during the intensive session. They helped us coaches see how drawing out career trajectories can help clients take ownership of their careers and make sense and meaning of their various career decisions and career moves.

The activities on crystallising our ideas on the concepts of the 9 desires were also a way for us to see how we could translate that to working with our clients.

Lorraine Kwek

So much personal reflection and support from fellow coaches for my own journey which will help me support clients even better and be aware of my own leanings

Loved that this session was very coach focused and gt us to do self work and reflection

Cynthia Kikelomo

Being reminded of the desires that everybody has is helpful because during my coaching sessions, I can pay attention to these elements further. It helps to label things better and provide more context for the coaching.
I also learned to let the conversation ‘stew’ longer so that I can uncover more about the client’s desire. I used to move on too quickly. I like the repeated emphasis on how work/career is not just work/career on its own, it is deeply tied to our personal life such as passion, desire, etc. Helping our clients to identify that would help.

Jason Ong

As a coach, I’ve learnt that what individuals are looking for can be mapped back to the 9 desires – even when the client is looking for material success, the client is looking for a need to be met (with that material success). In lifework coaching, there is also evidently a lot that may be holding the client back to pursue their wants or desires and what I’ve learnt is that, it is the coach’s responsibility to unbind the client from the veil of socialisation – and help the individual determine how much they want to use their career as an expression of their identity.

What I’ve gained personally is actually gaining a new perspective about my relationship to work. And this came with a very big realisation that the flexibility, which I would like to have cannot be attained in my current role.

Jeffrey Angus

Career Trajectory was a great tool and so was the values piece. Personally, helped me understand the drivers behind my career changes. The delivery and insights by the faculty were refreshing and also highly practical. Keep up the passion for what you do! It rubs off on us!

Juniper Chua

ACD challenges who I already am as a coach and as a person. It was an intensive journey and yet satisfying. It was deeply introspective, and yet liberating. It had help me to open up new avenues in my coaching approaches and lifted my overall experience when interacting with people as well.

Thank you to all faculty members who had used their expertise and their unique deliveries to challenge us to the next level of coaching! This is worth it!”


Business Owner

My decision to continue my learning as a professional coach with CCI taking part in the Advanced Coach Development Program was one my best decision for many reasons. Firstly, I have gained so much new insight about myself both as a person and as a coach. Secondly, the depth of the materials and advanced learning approaches, many interactions both F2F and Online with a smaller group of coaches on the path to our PCC, all with same intent, supported by best in class trainers, mentors and supervisors.

The ACD programs has not only helped me grow as a person, and at same time advanced me to a new level as a professional coach, is simply invaluable and has open many new doors that I would never have thought possible. Thank you CCI ACD Team!

PCD built in me the discipline of listening, ACD built in me the discipline of the ICF Core Competencies.
PCD taught me to ask effective questions, ACD taught me to ask effective and efficient questions.
PCD enabled me to hear and see the emotions, ACD enabled me to hear and see the unsaid.
PCD brought me to life coaching, ACD brought me to coach beyond life.
PCD made me a good coach, ACD made me a much better coach.

I had a great weekend! The Coaches were lovely. The best 2 days I’ve spent in a long time. One thing that I learnt was all the insights that I took away about Coaching, and that its easy to touch somebody’s life by just paying a bit more attention, and listening, and being there for them.
