Our Entry Level Programme

This self-study programme helps managers and professionals gain fast access to the core principles, definitions and understanding of what coaching is (and isn’t) within the role of a busy manager or leader.

This programme can also engage others during a company-wide programme to encourage coaching in the culture. For example, to offer understanding and engagement in the opportunity of coaching for individuals and the broader business.
