Nurturing potential within a work context is a worthwhile and rewarding skill to master - and valuable across all sectors of employment. This Saturday Masterclass will walk you through the best practice skills of business coaching, which can be immediately put into practice.

Why choose this course?

Coaching is a powerful way to help an individual or group improve their own performance. It is a specialised skill set used by educators, Fortune 500 CEOs, medical professionals and many more professional industries. A coaching approach enriches interactions: from informal conversations to management meetings, academic tutoring to performance reviews.

This one-day workshop offers a comprehensive introduction to the power of coaching skills. Our How to Become a Business Coach training course will lay the foundations for how coaching can best be used within your individual role and place of work. This is an excellent introductory session, ideal if you are to gain a good grasp on the basics of business coaching skills, before enrolling on the more in-depth 10-week Coaching for Business programme.
