Here are a number of areas that we think make our courses different to our competitors:
1) Our situational coach-mentoring philosophy - simply put, we believe that a coach-mentoring approach creates the greatest impact. Coach-mentors intentionally master a broad toolkit and adjust their style to suit the situation and context enabling them to select the most effective method to support their client rather than being wedded to specific tool or technique. They are pragmatic and not dogmatic. All our courses are underpinned by this philosophy, helping you develop a coach-mentoring mindset and the diverse skills required to be highly effective regardless of situation or context.
2) Create your own unique approach - we don't create "cookie cutter" coaches or mentors, you are a not just another delegate on a course! Instead, guided by our philosophy, we help you to develop your own unique approach to coach-mentoring that is authentic to you, your situation and your context. Yes, our graduates hold common beliefs - a strong ethically underpinning, common process tools to manage relationships effectively, a strong belief in CPD and supervision - and our programmes do have core content to develop the required skills at each level but they are also flexible enough to encourage you to develop your own interests and insights. Furthermore, our coach-mentor supervisors are highly experienced at guiding you through your own learning journey whilst maintaining you on course to successfully complete the requirements of the qualification
3) High levels of 1-2-1 support - we provide you with your own dedicated coach-mentor supervisor (CMS) to guide you through the qualification, consolidate your learning and help shape your practice. Unlike our competitors who mostly rely on group work, this dedicated personal resource ensures that you are stretched and supported in equal measures. We provide this on top of group work, it's expensive but it’s highly effective.
