About the course

The Essentials of Management Coaching Programme offers participants comprehensive and systemic knowledge of individual coaching, as well as coaching frameworks and models underlying professional coaching practice. This programme is designed to give participants not only coaching skills but also insight into their own way of being. Business coaching is therefore combined with personal development.


Coaching is an essential skill for managers, leaders and those in support professions who have to deal diplomatically and professionally with others concerning issues of a personal or sensitive nature. Over the course of the programme, participants will be equipped to:

  • Debate and critique individual coaching frameworks and models underlying professional coaching practice
  • Coherently and critically assess the multiple theoretical perspectives on coaching
  • Relate these theories to the practical and professional coaching environment
  • Demonstrate evidence of self-directed learning
  • Demonstrate evidence of operating in an environment characterised by situations challenging personal beliefs and ethical points of departure
  • Produce a research report which meets the standard of scholarly research and professional writing
  • Communicate clearly with a client by managing the one-on-one relationship in an ethical and professional way.

Who should attend

The course is aimed at human resource professionals, external trainers, consultants, managers and leaders that are currently coaching or aspiring to coach.
