The advanced coach training workshop is distinguished by its dynamic and engaging approach. It fosters an environment rich in interaction, encouraging participants to actively engage in discussions and apply new concepts in real-time. To ensure the utmost relevance and immediate applicability, attendees are encouraged to bring personal examples of their current objectives and challenges. This method ensures that the skills and strategies learned are directly aligned with their specific professional contexts, thereby enhancing the impact and effectiveness of the training.

2. Advanced Coaching Skills Workshop for Executive Coaches

In order to respond to the many and varied situations which arise during the practice of executive coaching, this advanced coach training workshop has been designed to provide experienced coaches with a range of additional tools and models to draw upon for their continuing professional development. Some are more suitable for use in formal coaching sessions and others for manager-as-coach.

Style of Learning

Our advanced coach training workshops are distinguished by their engaging and interactive learning style, ensuring a rich and immersive educational experience. Participants benefit from live demonstrations led by expert trainers, providing a practical insight into effective coaching and leadership techniques. The training is designed to encourage active participation, allowing attendees to engage in interactive practice sessions and collaborative exercises.

A unique aspect of our approach is the use of ‘real-plays’ rather than ‘role plays’, enabling participants to apply new skills directly to their own workplace environment rather than theoretical scenarios. This hands-on method ensures that the learning is directly relevant and immediately applicable.

We pride ourselves on fostering a safe and enjoyable learning atmosphere where participants can explore and grow. Our sessions are fast-paced and challenging, designed to push boundaries and stimulate professional development.
