Senior executive experience of coaches can be a potent teacher in the practice of coaching. However, it is not a substitute for rigorous evidence-based professional development and supervised practice. Executive experience and knowledge are required to understand the task at hand. Professional coaching skills are required to structure and implement a course of action effectively. We believe that coaches need to understand the evidence base for any coach training, from basic foundational skills to more advanced conceptual and technical skills, as they grow their professional coaching practice.
“The great man is always the man of mighty effort, and usually the man whom grinding need has trained to mighty effort. “
We pursue theoretically grounded, evidence-based approaches to executive and leadership coach training, an integrated multi-disciplinary approach that can make use of the wide range of theoretical perspectives that can form the foundations of evidence-based coaching practice.
