Overview

Level 1 - Introduction.
Level 2 - Advanced to Intermediate.

Level 1: Introductory Course

The Introduction level begins a journey of growth and exploration towards a new self-leadership for the future. It will introduce you to the principles and practice of coaching and leadership and provide an insight into a level of purpose that is deeply motivating.

The programme incorporates a range of highly interactive learning modes and motivational techniques and approaches, including real-life coaching, presentation, observation and feedback, a 140-page reference manual and handouts. Most importantly, it will allow you to explore and experience rather than ‘learn’ the foundations and essence of coaching – essential to the development of authentic and powerful coaching.

In the weeks following the 2-day training you will be supported in developing yourself as a coach through coaching practice, assignments, 2 group supervision calls, a coaching diary and self-assessment tool which are designed to focus on creating conscious competence around the key coaching skills which were developed in the training and building on the important foundation of the intuition you have begun to tap into.

The more coaching you are able to build into your work and everyday life, the more confident and natural you will become at coaching yourself and coaching others to integrate performance and purpose, and so release the greater potential and brilliance that lies within us all.
