Coaches and consultants are keen to find new and deeper ways to understand and work with their clients. This in turn is producing a great deal of interest in what is increasingly called "The Psychology of Coaching".
In our view, it is both unnecessary and unrealistic to expect business coaches to undertake lengthy psychological training as part of their overall development. Nevertheless, many executive coaches are recognising a need to know more and to be more skilled in the psychological and emotional dimensions to coaching issues. With this in mind, we, in collaboration with PBCoaching (formerly Peter Bluckert Coaching) have designed a programme to address this. Our programme is unique in that it provides key psychological theory and practice for coaching practitioners. It also addresses the personal development needs of the coach.
The Diploma in Advanced Business & Executive Coaching is an accredited programme, leading to a UCD qualification in the Advanced Business & Executive Coaching. The programme is accredited at NFQ level 9 and compromises 30 ECTS credits.
This programme typically attracts the following:
The programme provides the theory, skills and both the personal and professional development required for the coach to address the psychological aspects of the coachee's agenda. Participants will critically evaluate key theories and concepts and address best ethical practice. There is a strong focus on coach practice sessions with a psychological focus, including regular opportunities for observed coach practice, with feedback from peers and tutors.
