What will I Gain from this Course?
The UCT GSB Professional Coaching Course is organised around four face-to-face sessions that run from Wednesday to Saturday. Days run from 9:00 am to 6:30 pm with a long afternoon break.
During the inter-modular periods, delegates complete written assignments, read books from the "Coaches Bookshelf", coach clients, and undertake their own individual development programme. As they engage in these activities, they draw upon the support of small learning groups called pods. Each pod meets and works together. Delegates are also supported by faculty, pod, phone coach and tape mentors; they also receive periodic coaching from the course leaders themselves.
