Course Overview

The programme is delivered in two modules with a break between modules to practice and gain experience.

Module 1 - Run over two days, this introduces you to a number of fundamental coaching skills, tools and principles. 

Experience - After module one you are encouraged to put your learning into practice, experimenting within your own organisation.

Module 2 – Delivered six weeks after Module 1 over one day, Module 2 introduces some new ideas and tools and provides the opportunity for you to reflect on your learning and to further refine your  coaching skills.

Throughout both modules, you will learn about coaching not just from a theoretical perspective but also in practice. The programme includes many practice sessions, working with real coaching issues. Constructive and robust developmental feedback will be provided.

“This is one of the best, most useful courses I have ever attended. The balance of teaching input to practical application was just right. Just enough ‘models’ to give you options, and enough practice to make you draw your own conclusion that it’s not the model that matters but the listening. It was particularly helpful to discuss coaching in the context of leadership as a whole.”

"I recently attended the Coaching at Work program and I can honestly say it is one of the best courses I have attended and was great value for money. It was a perfect blend of theory, practical and also reflection time. The tutor, Simon was great, I was in awe of his depth of knowledge on the subject. He ensured everyone was included, he never rushed us and allowed everyone to enjoy the co-coaching which really helped to embed the training. I now use several of the tools and techniques he showed and they are working really well for me. The three days felt like a 'spa for the mind'."
