“The journey I have experience as a result of joining the coaching certificate has been truly transformative. The entire process has been a learning experience which I believe I’ll be able to call upon and apply through my future working career.
I started the course with an open mind but wasn’t entirely sure how coaching could help me improve collaboration and performance in my organisation. The course encouraged me to challenge many of the limiting beliefs I once had and gave me new perspectives with regards to the ways in which I now choose to engage with people. I intuitively knew there had to be more productive and inclusive ways of working with people in an organisation but I wasn’t clear on how. As the course evolved I began to trust the techniques and frameworks I had come to learn and could see the benefits of using them. I experienced some “growth pains” along the way, especially in relation to questioning my thoughts and feelings, but with the help of my facilitator I kept faith in the process and I’m extremely grateful that I did.” – Lewis Smales

Diploma in Performance Development Coaching
This opportunity enables you to become a real ‘beacon’ for coaching within your organisation; have the capability to offer supervision to other coaches and be an even more potent and powerful coach.
The Diploma deepens understanding of coaching practice and allows you to tune into your specialism in a way which really can add value. On this programme, each participant has the opportunity to drive their own agenda within an outline modular structure, taking ownership for their thinking and understanding in a particular area of expertise – for example Neuro- Linguistic Programming (NLP) or Transactional Analysis (TA).
The Programme takes approximately seven to nine months to complete to allow for the skills to be developed, practised and refined throughout the time during and in between the two day modules. The commitment to this period of time really supports a sustainable shift in behaviour that continues well after the formal structure of the Programme.
This programme is ideal for managers, leaders and coaches who are already coaching but are looking to gain an even greater understanding of the coaching relationship. It’s also ideal for individuals who have completed our Certificate in Performance Development Coaching.
What does the course cover:
-Six two-day modules spread over a seven month period (non-residential) to support personal reflection and extensive practice.
-Explore personal learning and experiences. These are driven by the participant to support their personal journey and growth as a coach.
-Working with a maximum group size of 12 participants, the Diploma is facilitated by a highly experienced professional coach to ensure individual development is maximised.
“I have learnt so much and found the facilitation excellent – insightful, stretching, skilled, fun and diverse. The modelling that was within the facilitation was a really rich source of learning for me as was the generosity of both facilitators in supporting development outside as well as within the group.” – Dr Sue Butler
