John Leary-Joyce conceived the Academy of Executive Coaching (AoEC) in 1999 as the culmination of 30 years’ training and developing people.

He worked with AMED to undertake research into the advanced training of coaches. In addition, he collaborated with leaders in the field of coach training and many experienced coaches to design and implement the initial coach development programme. The AoEC believes that learning to be a great coach is a profound and personal journey.

We have the most talented people as faculty who combine Masters level psychological experience with extensive business leadership and coaching expertise.

Since its inception, the AoEC has been committed to maintaining the highest professional standards, becoming the only European coach training company to be accredited by the three top professional bodies, the International Coaching Federation(ICF), European Mentoring and Coaching Council (EMCC) and the Association of Coaching(AC). The Advanced Practitioner in Executive Coaching and the Systemic Team Coaching Diploma is additionally accredited by Middlesex University*. We can therefore offer you professional and academic credentials that will be recognised internationally.

“We believe in coaching you to be a coach, to be the best you can be. We don’t just teach coaching methodologies, we work with you to identify and develop your own model, your own style, your own signature presence.”
