Do I already need to be a coach in order to enroll in the Smartside Academy?
Yes, as in addition to your training as a coach, we teach you our Storyleader® coaching technique. It completes your coaching tools by bringing a “narrative” touch to your coaching sessions around presentations, communications, etc.

Are there supervision sessions included in the courses by the Smartside Academy?
Supervision sessions are part of the “community” option, in which you can enroll after completing the course. These sessions come in two different formats: either in one to one sessions with a senior coach, or collectively thanks to the Smartside community of coaches that help each other on their topics. “Upskilling” sessions are also available, as an option, twice a year to stay up to date. They are tought within the Academy at an intermediate and advanced level.
