Coaching - training and practice

Helping your client become self-sufficient

Coaching skills cannot be improvised – above all, coaches need to be able to question themselves and be open to others. The aim of this program is to train you in both individual and collective coaching.


At the end of the program you will have the necessary skills to carry out consistent and effective coaching assignments in companies, from a theoretical, methodological, behavioral and ethical perspective.




Ultimately, leadership is about the strength of one's convictions, the ability to endure the punches, and the energy to promote an idea."

– Benazir Bhutto
