Advanced Business & Executive Coaching
This unique part-time, fully-accredited diploma programme is designed for experienced coaches looking to take their coaching to the next level. It focuses on the psychological dimension of coaching, developing participants ’ability to “raise coachee’s awareness of their ingrained patterns of behaviour”, the most important quality required of coaches by sponsors in large organisations (Ridler Report 2013).
A key feature is the focus on personal development, rooted in the firm belief that it is vital for participants to have personal experience of challenging their own ingrained patterns of behaviour as a basis for working effectively with clients.
The combination of theory, practice, personal and professional development transforms participants’ ability to work more deeply and effectively with their clients.
To ensure participants get the most out of the programme, you must be a practising coach, with a minimum of 2-3 clients (paying/pro bono) who you meet on a monthly basis.
On successful completion of the programme, participants will be awarded the Professional Diploma in Advanced Business & Executive Coaching by UCD Smurfit Executive Development (30 ECTS at NFQ Level 9). This diploma forms part of the MSc in Business and Executive Coaching Pathway.
