Systemic Team Coaching Diploma
Our Masters-level Systemic Team Coaching Diploma enables experienced coaches, Organisation Development consultants and team leaders to become among the most highly qualified team coaches in the field today.
One of the longest-running team coaching programmes available, this ICF-accredited team coaching training deepens your practice by supporting you in applying your learning to a live client assignment. It offers the expertise of highly experienced coaching faculty and support of an experienced, international learning community.
“Systemic Team Coaching is an ongoing partnership and the Masters-level Diploma helps you learn how to partner with a complex team during a coaching programme lasting 9-12 months. It provides a very rich action learning cycle with theories, practice with your learning group, applying your learning to your client project, as well as review, reflection and supervision from expert faculty. Professor Peter Hawkins, AoEC Honorary President

“This course not only transformed my approach to coaching teams, it helped transform my business by breaking into an area I had long wanted to involve myself in.”
“The programme is transformational; I am a different coach as a result. It’s offered me an opportunity to develop my practice at all levels; when working with individuals, teams and organisations. It allowed me to bring together my life experience, previous training and development, as well as the learning during the programme, to create my signature approach. The faculty and participants were generous with their time and created a safe, but challenging, place to learn and grow as a systemic team coach practitioner. Highly recommended.”

Is this the programme for me?
Before starting the Diploma (next programme starts February 2019), you must have completed the Systemic Team Coaching Certificate – a three-day programme which doubles as Module One of the Diploma. Visit the Systemic Team Coaching Certificate page or contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
This programme is designed to build on your substantial knowledge and experience of developing people.
In addition you must be:
1. An experienced individual coach with at least three years’ practice having completed either a training equivalent to ACC (ICF) or Practitioner Level (EMCC)
2. An external or internal consultant or HR business partner with a five-year+ career in Organisational Development and extensive coaching experience. You will be expected to be able to present your theoretical framework for coaching individuals.
3. An experienced senior team leader with coaching skills
In all cases you will need to secure a client team, or be a leader of your own team, in order to complete a case study – which will be an important opportunity to experiment and practice your developing systemic team coaching skills.
“I wanted to spend more time in a learning environment and tap into the collective knowledge of the faculty at the AoEC. This team coach training programme has enabled me to do just that. It has been the most significant, stretching and rewarding learning experience of my career to date.”
