Our customised leader-coach programme is designed for leaders in organisations who have a vision of optimising the potential of the individuals and teams they lead and creating a thinking culture throughout the organisation.

The impact of this training is most profound when the journey begins with the senior leadership. Authentic system change happens when top tier leaders subscribe to and demonstrate a coaching style of leadership. This then becomes a positive model of leadership throughout the organisation.

We partner with you to design a powerful intervention that best serves the leadership needs of your organisation. We draw strongly on our flagship coach training programme, Transforming Insight, which is an ICF accredited coach training programme, offered over 2-3 months.

Rates vary depending on chosen programme design.

What our clients have to say

“A truly life changing experience.”

“This programme has blown my mind with what it is possible to draw out of people when you just have the right conversations.”

“Besides facilitating the personal growth of the leaders who have participated in the programme, the skills and framework learnt during the programme has helped to shift con-versations with individuals and teams where it has been applied.”

“Coach training has helped us as a team to see the best in each other and work with (in-stead of against) each other. We value and appreciate that everyone brings a different view and perspective, this is what we need, united in vision and strengthened by expanded, new thinking. This is the only way we will find effective approaches to complex problems”
