Sample Exam Now On-line

IAC members can now practice taking the Phase I certification exam on-line by going to http://www.certifiedcoach.org/sample.html.

Here you will find a sample coaching scenario featuring a 49 year old physician approaching burn-out and feeling resentful of his medical partner.

You are then provided choices on how to coach him based on the 15 proficiencies. You receive immediate feedback on your answer by connecting to a link which takes you to the correct answer and an explanation of why it is the right one to choose. In addition, explanations are offered for why the other two possible answers are incorrect.

“We are very grateful to Barbra Sundquist and Donna Steinhorn who created this sample exam,” said Michael “Coop” Cooper, IAC President, when announcing the exam’s availability today. “Both are excellent coaches and dedicated volunteers who have given of themselves to help all IAC members.”

Sundquist is a mentor coach who specializes in helping other coaches obtain their certification. Steinhorn is a life and business coach and the founder of EWIT (Entrepreneurial Women Interested In Innovative Tomorrows), an organization for high-achieving women.
