This 2-day course by the Academy of Executive Coaching introduces you to the core coaching principles and practice, enabling you to apply your knowledge in different professional environments.

During this course, you will learn how to use an effective four stage model that will allow you to begin coaching right away, you will also discover what kind of coaching is right for you. You will experience what it’s like to be an executive coach and begin to understand the power and success of coaching.
