Our Definition of Coaching
Coaching is about improving leadership and management performance; it is about using the inherent wisdom and knowledge the coachee has to find their own solutions.
It is about helping people discover, from their background, from their experience, from their own knowledge, their own way forward.

Anne Phillipson, Programme Director
“A quality programme full of rich, challenging content that stretched and developed my thinking and practice.”
Grainne McCurry, Head of Leadership & Enterprise Solutions
“This exceeded my expectations in every way, from the facilitation from Wendy and Trudy to the connection within my peer group, the content we covered and the support that I got from the very beginning to the end.
Everything was flawless – one of the best programmes I have ever attended.
Both Trudy and Wendy are incredibly gifted coaches and inspiring people. I really enjoyed every interaction I had with both of them whether it was during the face to face workshops, tutorials of the 1:1 private calls. They made me feel comfortable from the first day to be myself and really added to the wonderful energy that we had as a peer group. Thank you both so much for everything.”
Regional Head of People Development – EMEA

The tutors were superb; approachable, knowledgeable, supportive, constructive and honest in their feedback. They made the whole diploma extremely enjoyable. Would highly recommend this course.”
Jane Askin – Learning and Development Manager
“I felt really privileged to be involved in this programme. The caliber of the facilitators and the other people on the course meant that every hour I was learning. I can’t believe my personal development in such a short space of time, and how enjoyable and stimulating I found the whole experience. Thank you Wendy, Trudie and gang for starting me on my road of coaching!”
Julie Dowsett – Programme Manager
“This was an extremely, enlightening, challenging and rewarding course. The facilitators really know their stuff; they are very professional and have a lot of patience – which helps. There were a high number of ‘value-adding’ moments and I find that I am much better equipped and feel re-invigorated as a coach. I would definitely recommend it.”
