Course Overview

Coaching is a critical skill for any leader, and Coaching Academy gives leaders the ability and confidence to coach senior executives, high-performing teams and talented employees.

The program helps participants build their coaching capability to enhance the performance of others. The program is designed for two cohorts:

  • Executives, managers and other leaders who wish to contribute to the development of a coaching culture in their workplace and deliver better business outcomes;
  • Executives and professionals who would like to transition into an executive coaching consultancy.

This program delivers workshops on coaching and leadership theory and practice. Each participant puts theory into practice immediately through our unique ‘live coachee’ experience, in which they coach an actual client while supported by a Master Coach. This ensures that participants can build on their new coaching skills, gain confidence, and develop trust immediately in a real business context.

All Coaching Academy participants undertake the Gallup StrengthsFinder 2.0 self-assessment. Expert Master Coaches practice and teach a strengths-based approach that encourages each individual to leverage and enhance their identified strengths and coach from a strengths-based approach to unlock the potential in their coachees.

Participants have access to a suite of self-directed learning tools between the workshops and coaching their coachees, receive one-on-one coaching from a Master Coach, and access content and collaboration through a workplace group.

The program is delivered online via live video stream and is a uniquely engaging experience. Delivered over a full 10-week program, it includes three one-on-one coaching sessions, nine virtual workshops, a ‘live’ coachee client for trainee coaches to work with, a strengths assessment, accreditation and a community of practice alumni.

This is an interactive and participatory program and an opportunity to develop lasting relationships and a powerful professional network of fellow coaches. Graduates gain executive coaching certification as an Executive Central Accredited Executive Coach.
