The programme has a strongly experiential structure
Our philosophy is to teach coaching through personal development. This means that the emphasis is on giving the participants the opportunity to understand and apply the theoretical parts of the programme to themselves and use in particular context. This gives the programme a strongly developmental, hands-on flavour.
A typical learning day will consist of
- less than 30% transmission of information
- 30 % processing that information in small groups
- 40% practicing in coaching triads. In these practice sessions, participants take the roles of coach, client and observer, thus learning from both active and passive participation.
Participants can expect to learn
- common sense criteria for coaching
- core coaching competencies
- ability to use the necessary skills for leading a coaching conversation
- to recognize ‘own and others’ assumptions
- to use coaching techniques
- to co-create a coaching relationship
- to use support and challenge as interventions
- to understand of what coaches actually do and how they be

- group work
- mini-lectureslive demonstrations
- exercises in triads with peer feedback
During the programme participants are expected to keep a learning Journal.
In-between the modules participants are asked to do some reading, coaching practice and studying in the Internet. This will take notionally 3 hours a week, of which coaching practice in coaching peer one hour a week as a coach and one hour a week as a client.

“From leadership perspective this program has been most beneficial training I have attended.
I have been able to take the learnings from each module immediately into action and try the different methods and approaches in daily work. As my work role includes also training responsibility, I have benefitted from both substance and training delivery perspective, getting new ideas of exercises and activities.
Leda is a wonderful, knowledgable, compassionate coach who shares a lot of her own experiences and also puts her ‘skin in the game’ by running also coaching demo sessions.”
