Coaching project

Participants must fulfill at least 20 hours of coaching, with at least two teams; each one will receive at least ten hours of coaching. They should present a written report of those coaching projects to the trainer, within six months of the initial training. You may also present a video with written commentary.

Participants should present their goals for the project to the trainer – the values it represents and their plan of action – one month before the end of the course.
