Online: Executive Coaching and Health: Coaching Skills for Wellness, Recovery & Performance

Integrating health into executive coaching incorporates – a client’s health and health challenges that impact on their optimal functioning, performance and leadership.

Diabetes, weight management, hypertension, dependency and addiction, mental health, cancer, anxiety and depression, the list is endless.

Health affects everyone indirectly or directly. Health challenges can affect your client directly, or maybe a loved one or someone in their team. If there is a health difficulty your client may not be able to function at their optimum and could even be under performing.

This 10 week online programme equips you with essential skills to enhance your coaching and integrate health into your executive coaching role to enable you to take a holistic view.

A definition of executive recovery to wellness coaching:

A specialist form of coaching intervention based on knowledge domains, principles and coach contexts that provide for the specific integration, on an ongoing basis, of the state of a client’s health, lifestyle behaviours and health challenges. A coaching process that initiates, develops and maintains recovery from a health challenge within the context of an individual’s total being and ability to perform. An approach that can be implemented as a preventative measure for serious health challenges.

What is involved?

This is a self-directed online learning module designed to provide you with the essential learnings you need to progress to the more advanced levels.

It is expected to take 10 weeks to complete based on an average of six hours engagement a week.

The online learning platform will consist of theory and multiple-choice questioning.

FAQ’s for coaches interested in the AOEC / FRC programme Executive Coaching and Health: Coaching Skills for Wellness, Recovery & Performance.

A:  The total programme time is 60 hours delivered. This is the amount of time that the activities of watching videos, listening to audio, participating in exercises, taking multiple choice tests and reading material is certified as taking. It is unlikely you can thoroughly engage with the material in less time. How long it takes you will depend on how you approach the material. If you spend six hours a week then it should take you 10 weeks. Of course, we are all different and some parts may be quicker for you or you may wish to spend more time on others. You can decide for yourself and pace yourself as you wish.

A: No. Whilst this programme places some emphasis on the executive coaching role the principles within the programme are useful across almost any coaching context. You will be able to span across a wider group of clients than those typical to executive coaching if you so wish.
