What others have to say
Thuli Segalo recently completed the STCC. Take a listen to her experience on the programme.
“Knowing yourself and knowing how your team engages with stakeholders, both internal and external, is the secret sauce to success in all organisations. Having learned new skills and frameworks from the AoEC Systemic Team Coaching certificate course, I am empowered to deliver a better service to my clients.”
“I often work with teams who are so focused only on themselves, their day to day tasks and the different personalities in the group. Of course the internal team goals and dynamics are important, but there is so much more to being a successful team. This program will give you the knowledge, understanding and practical learning experience to coach teams from a systemic viewpoint. Looking from the 'outside - in' to help them define what team success really is and help them deliver this success for their stakeholders and themselves. A wonderful program, I highly recommend it.”
Nick Regan, UK
“The Systemic Team Coaching certificate was an excellent 3-day course. A perfect blend of theory, experiential work, reflection and fun. Thanks to Alan Taylor and Moira Nangle for their expert facilitation, for the AoEC for the organisation, check ins and pre-work and my 19 colleagues who were a pleasure to work with from such a variety of backgrounds. I learnt so much!”
“I wanted to understand the STC framework and process and this course delivered brilliantly, as ever with AoEC, great mix of theory and practice to embed the learning. Fast, fun and based on years of collective experience.”
David Alcock, UK
“A highly interactive and experiential course, which allows you learn and apply the knowledge/skills of systemic team coaching early on, with strong support from expert trainers and coaching peers. Quality of course trainers, materials and operational support is superb and the added value of gaining a network of coaching peers across multiple sectors, as well as the AoEC network, makes the certificate an excellent long-term investment in one’s practice as both a team and 1-2-1 Coach.”
“The Systemic Team Coaching Certificate was a well-structured, thorough programme of learning delivered by experienced faculty. The content is well structured with the closing peer-review session bringing the learning together very effectively. The case-study simulations enabled experiential learning guided by the faculty and made for an energetic on-line experience. The content was practical and aligns well to coaches already involved in team facilitation and coaching; lots of tools and techniques are shared by faculty and fellow participants. Overall a great learning experience for practical application.”
