Leadership and Life Coach Training for Religious Women

The Benedictine Sisters of Pittsburgh are launching a pilot program that leads to accreditation by the International Coaching Federation.


Because of three very dedicated Benedictine Sisters who brought a dream to fruition, 12 fortunate women from various parts of the country will begin their journey toward certification as Leadership and Life Coaches.

The online pilot program, which begins at 9 a.m. Oct. 2, is the first step in applying for accreditation by the International Coaching Federation. With the ICF Pittsburgh Chapter already supporting the program by arranging volunteer support, accreditation is all but guaranteed.  First-year participants will be grandfathered in.

Sisters Evelyn Dettling, Susan English, and Roberta Campbell will lead the 120 hours of instruction with additional support from Janice Sabatine, Jane Rahenkamp and coaches from the ICF Pittsburgh chapter.  The program includes four three-day learning retreats occurring every six months with one-hour long webinars every other week in between. The sisters designed the schedule to be suitable for those working full-time Ministries.

What led the three Sisters to coaching? Sister Roberta pointed out that as part of their 150th Birthday Celebration, they wanted to make a gift to the larger community.  According to Sister Susan Merrie, “When an individual develops better communication skills, a broader viewpoint is possible and once that possibility evolves, you have a better chance of working toward world peace.”

If you are interested in finding out more about the program or care to lend some support, you can contact the Sisters at (724) 502-2600.
