Course Factsheet


Experience what it’s like to be a coach and begin to understand the power and success of coaching.

If learning to be an exceptional executive coach is a journey, then this exciting 2-day course is your threshold!

Course Summary

Training you can trust.
Our experience and commitment to you.
This 2 day programme will introduce you to the principles and practice of coaching. Not only will you learn how to use an effective four stage model that will allow you to begin coaching right away, you will also discover what kind of coaching is right for you.

Course Objectives

What's special about this course? As the market has matured and coaching has become embedded in everyday language and business life, we noticed the gap has widened between people who have been exposed to coaching (e.g. been coached, worked in a coaching manner or done an NLP course) and those with no prior experience of coaching.

With this programme we want to provide you with the appropriate door into executive coaching…and to do all possible to ensure you are learning alongside similarly experienced coaches.

Discover and learn

Is coaching for me?
The Coaching Skills Certificate will allow you to experience coaching first-hand to help you decide whether you wish to train further in coaching and proceed onto our Practitioner Diploma.

How can I introduce coaching into my organisation?
Understand the unique transformational ability of coaching from the inside out so you can confidently introduce coaching into your organisation.

What kind of coaching is right for me?
Reflect on and discover your personal coaching style and type of coaching you most enjoy. (e.g. life coaching, career coaching, business coaching, performance coaching, transformational coaching)

The coaching context: why – when – who?
Coaching is the most effective approach for a variety of frequent business issues, for example: alignment of goals between individuals, teams and organisation; career transition; overcoming poor or ineffective relationships with colleagues; effective action planning.

Do I have what it takes to be a great coach?
If this is a whole new area for you then you’ll be able to explore further whether this is a good career choice for you and to talk to a highly qualified coach as part of the process.

What will you learn?

You will have access to expert tutor input from an experienced Executive Coach.

You will also receive peer feedback as you test your “coaching wings” in small practice triads: coach – coachee – observer.
