About the course
Corporate coaching is more than just listening, sharing and motivating others. It is a skill-based approach to help those being coached (‘coachees’) gain a deeper awareness of what matters, where they want to progress professionally, and how to get there in the best and fastest possible way.
Increasingly, in addition to dedicated external and internal coaches, senior and mid-level executives within organisations are now required to master this approach and contribute to the development of a corporate coaching culture.
The ICC programme is the most comprehensive and highest level corporate coach development programme in Asia for the following reasons:
- It combines the expertise of a regional executive coaching company, Progress-U, with the academic and business knowledge of a highly reputable Asia business school, SMU.
- A ratio of 12 participants is paired to a facilitator, allowing for extensive direct interaction with the facilitators.
- Designed and developed in Asia, all case studies and role plays are based on real coaching situations in the region while adopting the latest global ideas and approaches.
- It is the only coach certification programme in Asia that is both Worldwide Association of Business Coaches (WABC) Level 1 accredited and Approved Coach Specific Training Hours (ACSTH) approved with the International Coach Federation (ICF). At the end of the programme, participants will receive:
- SMU/Progress-U International Corporate Coaching ('ICC') certificate
- Registered Corporate Coach ('RCC') certificate with WABC
