The Practitioner Diploma in Executive Coaching, is for individuals wanting to develop a deeper understanding of who they are and how they coach. The multi-day course is spread over three months, introduces participants to a range of approaches to inspire them to develop their own coaching model, unique to them.

The Systemic Team Coaching Certificate, is for experienced coaches and organisational development consultants who wish to deepen their practise.

The Young Professionals Coaching Skills Certificate, a collaboration with CoachBright, is a unique two-day training opportunity that aims to ease the transition from higher education into working life.

All courses will be delivered in English, with the potential to be delivered in French or German at a later stage based on demand. Courses will be held in Zürich, Geneva, Basel or Central Switzerland.

We believe in experiential learning and all our courses provide an engaging balance between theory and live-practise. The learning environment is enhanced with an interactive, online platform. We also provide participants access to a digital collaboration tool for ongoing support and networking.

The Practitioner Diploma is one of the leading executive coach training programmes accredited by the professional coach-accrediting bodies: Association for Coaching (AC), the International Coaching Federation (ICF) and the European Mentoring and Coaching Council (EMCC).
