Coaching means supporting a person or a team for a fixed period of time in order to help them achieve what is important in their life. It is based on the principle that the person has unique talents, considerable abilities that are often “latent”, and the resources needed to succeed in their private and professional life.
Training in coaching enables a student to develop a professional activity as a coach or to use coaching skills in their work. These include relationship and communication skills that are now essential in many fields.

The programme exceeded my expectations. I leave a different person, I take the learning within myself onto a new road of life.
"The level of intensity provides a unique learning environment. Extremely knowledgeable trainers. Always open to questions, no matter how large or small."
“The Master course has made it tangibly possible for me to move to a new level of coaching with much more powerful tools that enable us to get even closer to what it is that drives the coachee, his or her essence and realisation on both the personal and professional fronts. The dissertation, for its part, allowed me to identify the model I want to suggest to my coachees. It is of invaluable help. It provides a foundation for the path I wish to take to carry on and strengthen my work as a coach. I recommend it to any and every coach who is looking for more basic, profound and powerful tools.”
“The training is focused on “Doing”, not too Theoretical which boosts confidence. I love the co-creating of the course; feelings are taken seriously, great examples.”
