Awaken Coach Institute's


There has never been a greater need to be able to unleash the human potential of teams. In this uncertain world where change is constant, teams are under stress and pressure to do more with less. Yet, they struggle to work together and live up to their potential.

This course aims to provide you with Team Coaching skills to support teams to work effectively together where they can achieve results and create an empowering, fun and sustainable culture.

We are all part of teams. These could be a sports team, our family, a project team, a work team, a team in church or with friends. The beauty of teams is that we bring diversity, creativity, and different perspectives.

However, not all teams work well together; they can be chaotic, have mixed priorities, individualism, toxic, clashing personalities, and complex relationships. We have all had the experience of being on a dysfunctional team, and it is a challenge to stay motivated and bring your best self.

Imagine if you had the skills and confidence to work with teams to give them a different way of being together. Your impact could make a difference that helps team members collaborate effectively, build trust and respect with each other, and set them on a path to change behaviours, learn to work successfully together, value diversity, and align around a common goal or purpose.


I'm Debbie Brupbacher, faculty of Awaken Coach Institute. I know the positive impact of a team working well together, and part of my purpose is to give people the tools and skills to support teams to be effective, motivated and productive. 

I remember my first team coaching engagement where one person in the team said, "in my eight years of working with this company, we have never had a training where we got to the bottom of the problems, broke down barriers, were vulnerable and connected more deeply". I saw how team coaching impacted team behaviours and how they connected. Not only were they more collaborative, but they also had more fun working together.   

My purpose is to create a braver world where we can be more loving to each other. 

This means trusting your team members and being vulnerable enough to have productive debates that allow you to make better decisions. I want to give teams these skills that will help them work more effectively together, and what better way to do this than to equip people with the skills to coach their teams? You will gain Team coaching skills to make a difference in team members' lives, their teams and their organisations. 

The joy in Team Coaching is like watching a movie where you can impact the characters' behaviours and help them create a different outcome. Like any journey, there are other challenges, emotions, ups and down, and you have the privilege of supporting them with compassion and directness.  

With the TEAM COACHING CERTIFICATION COURSE, we help you to master team coaching skills and capabilities to respond to different situations and challenges teams face in their development journey. 

This 24-week course has been designed to help you master the foundations of Team Coaching, and the interactive sessions allow you to practice competencies from Day 1. 

You'll discover how to use team coaching competencies in practice and how to run a team in a successful coaching session.

This course is structured into two distinct and interconnected parts.

The first one is design to discover the fundamentals of effective team coaching through an immersive learning experience. In Part 1 of our course, you will embark on a journey to develop a solid understanding of essential skills and theories in team coaching. Through a combination of self-study, interactive discussions, and hands-on experiential exercises, you will acquire the necessary knowledge to lay a strong foundation as a Team Coach.

Each session over the foundational 11-week course provides reflective questions that will help you expand your range and development to hold the space to coach teams. 

During the Part 2, you will learn how to prepare to engage with teams and navigate the complexities that arise in real-world scenarios. Working closely with a co-lead and benefiting from group supervision, you will engage in practical sessions designed to simulate team coaching experiences. These sessions will provide you with a safe space to apply your skills, receive valuable feedback, and refine your approach.

Team Coaching is a journey where we help you enjoy the experience.



Becoming a Team Coach starts with yourself. You are connecting with your heart and evoking a deep trust in yourself and the coaching process. This will require a reflective practice that will give you the energy to expand your capacity, embrace the not knowing and go with the flow in team coaching sessions. 

Team coaching mastery is a journey in your development. Hours of practice in the arena and learning team coaching skills will only work when you are not held back or triggered by your patterns and limiting beliefs.  


When you’ve completed this course, you will be able to…

  • Have a deeper understanding of yourself through interactive sessions and reflective work. 

  • Have deep trust in yourself and the team coaching process 

  • To competently coach a team through their coaching journey using your new team coaching skills and competencies.

    “My world has gotten so much bigger. You just need someone to say, “Go!” I feel expanded. When we started, I still had so much fear, but the gift of being believed in has been so healing. It’s given me the strength to step forward. I have changed and my poetry has changed, it needed the space and it’s growing up with me. I’ve been given so much more than I could have imagined.”

Everything you need to know before enrolling to the Team Coaching Course


These are some of the questions people most frequently ask us:

You will become an Awaken certified team coach, AND walk away with skills and confidence to coach teams by the end of 24 weeks, understanding not only the theory, but practicing your skills.

Not yet! This is our pilot course. The International Coaching Federation requires coaching education providers to run the course at least once as a pilot with a minimum of 5 participants, then apply for accreditation. We will submit the accreditation request in 2023 and, if it is approved (and our track record is 100%), you will receive a certification that you can use toward your ICF credential. You benefit from pilot pricing on this course.

Our participants almost never miss a class. We become a very close-knit community and everyone is really looking forward to meeting. No one flies under the radar--everyone's presence is key. 

A certificate of completion will only be granted if you attend at least 90% of the courses live. If you miss a class, you will watch the video recording and provide a written summary of your learning. If you attend less than 90% of the live classes, you will receive a letter of partial completion.

Each week there is homework that is designed to deepen your learning.  In addition there are reflection exercises that slow you down, tune in and make sense of yourself.  These exercises help you let go of assumptions and access your humanity and wisdom in service of your clients, teams and organisations.
