Module 1

Excellence and Authenticity

Coaching is widely embraced by business for its success in accelerating performance and development. The corporate coaching market continues to grow, with organisations seeking coaches to help valued individuals raise self-awareness, enhance relationships and impact, develop leadership capability, re-shape culture, overcome blocks to performance and build resilience.

Enabling clients to meet these challenges, enjoy their careers and achieve work-life balance calls on corporate coaches to excel in a wide range of skills. Coaches need to be credible, ethical, able to manage the process from first contact to final evaluation, and of course add value through the coaching itself.

Would you like to build your capacity as a corporate coach? Have you started coaching in the corporate world, but feel you could be more effective? Are you an established corporate coach looking to take your practice to the next level?

Designed for coaches who work, or wish to work, in the corporate coaching market, this module will enable you to meet the demands and reap the rewards of this exciting work, through exploring the structures and processes that drive excellence in delivery, as well as your skills and authenticity in the critical moments of coaching.

Module 2

Enabling Integrated Change

Corporate coaching is often focused on achieving tangible outcomes for clients and their organisations – measurable shifts in performance, skills, behaviour, relationships and employee engagement or culture. When seen as a business investment in valued people, a focus on the external results of coaching is no surprise. However, achieving these external results frequently requires shifts in the client’s inner world of thoughts, feelings, beliefs and capacity for change.

To be fully effective, corporate coaches need the skills, methods, confidence and judgement to work in both the inner and outer worlds, potentially overcoming client resistance such as seeking quick solutions, scepticism about value, or discomfort with talking about their inner world – anything that might be termed ‘fluffy’, ‘deep’ or ‘woo-woo’.

Enabling Integrated Change draws on the psychology and neuroscience of mindfulness, emotional intelligence, change and adult development. It is designed for coaches who work, or wish to work, in corporate coaching, and all coaches who wish to enhance their skills to help clients achieve sustainable change.

This module will equip you to work more confidently, credibly and effectively with clients on the aspects of their inner world that are blocking change in their outer world development, behaviours, performance and impact.

Module 3

Deploying Diagnostic Tools

Diagnostic tools in the form of personality profiles and 360° feedback are in widespread use in the corporate sector, and can be a powerful element of any coach’s toolbox. Businesses value these tools for the personal insight gained by individual coaching clients, the collective insight gained when results are aggregated, the creation of a common language to talk about how people work and, in the case of 360° feedback, as an impact measure for coaching and development programmes.

Personality profiles provide a framework to describe our preferences, traits and motivations. Having a lens and a language to recognise personal needs and respond to others’ needs through adapting behaviours can help improve communication, relationships, and influence.

360° feedback provides a picture of actual behaviours and impact on colleagues. Through a combination of numerical ratings and written comments, reports may highlight important gaps between what someone thinks they do and what others experience, opening blind spots and catalysing motivation for change, or revealing hidden strengths and how they could be leveraged.

Many licensed diagnostic tools require coaches to complete a practitioner accreditation. However, personal experience of diagnostic tools, and knowledge of core principles and good practices for their use in coaching, are an asset to any coach.

This module explores personality profiling and 360° feedback in coaching, and includes the opportunity to receive your own personality profile and practice interpreting a 360° feedback report.
