At its heart, coaching is a process of deceptive simplicity and power. Coaching is future-oriented and focuses on individual growth and development.
It is a series of purposeful conversations which enables an individual to move towards his or her goals, and it typically involves some form of personal change.
Its purpose is to enable clients to clarify what they want, unstick themselves when they feel stuck, and find the resources to meet the challenges along their chosen path.
Coaching is not about advising, telling or influencing; and, though it can be therapeutic in its effect, it is not therapy or counselling.
The coach is a facilitative partner to the client on their journey of personal learning and development. The client decides on the agenda, and the coach is responsible for keeping the process productively on track. To this end the coach skilfully listens, questions, reflects, encourages, challenges and supports.
Coaching Development’s approach is to develop coaches, rather than 'teach coaching’.
If your main interest is in acquiring tools and techniques for directing, controlling or shaping others' actions, then you will probably not enjoy our coach training courses.
If you are interested in moving beyond technique and seek to develop within yourself the deeper awareness, attitudes and skills essential to effective coaching, then these are the courses for you.

Professional Coaching Skills (Part I Diploma in Coaching)
Description: On our Professional Coaching Skills coach training course you will develop the attitudes and learn the skills of an effective professional coach. Through continuing practice, observation and feedback, you will have the opportunity to become highly proficient.
Our purpose is not simply to provide you with a toolkit of powerful techniques and processes. Techniques have their place and can be useful in moving us forward in various ways, but the point for us is that essentially it will be you, as a coach, who develops.
We will question, encourage, challenge and support you in your learning. In other words you will be coached throughout the coach training course. You will have the opportunity to develop yourself so that coaching becomes an authentic part of who you are.
As you develop your self-awareness you will become more able to ‘get out of your own way’, and out of the way of your clients. You will become able to listen and question more deeply and accurately, be more aware of your perceptions, insights and intuitions, and become more skilled in communicating simply, honestly and effectively.
As you increasingly bring this way of being to your work, you will become more and more able to be truly present with, and for, your clients. The quality of your attention and engagement will become a catalyst which accelerates your clients’ progress; they will feel affirmed, extended, liberated, energized and stimulated to grow. They will increasingly develop themselves into who and what they want to be.
We are passionate about the development of coaching as a profession, and committed to the pursuit of excellence based on clear ethical standards, thorough training and continuing professional development.
We have designed a stimulating, demanding and enjoyable coach training course that will bring out and develop your own inherent knowledge and abilities. We think you will find this a deeply fulfilling journey.
