Executive, Development and Life coaching.

Artistry of Coaching unfolds in an atmosphere of inquiry and discovery.
Whether you learn best by listening, observing or doing or a combination; our methodology will satisfy your learning style. We blend training, facilitation, discussion, learning exercises, coaching demonstration, peer coaching practice, observed sessions, feedback and mentoring to rapidly build coaching competence. We leverage the diverse knowledge, experience and perspectives that you bring to the program to co-create a unique learning experience for the group.
We strike an optimum balance between theory and practice. We ensure that a deep foundation of essentials is established before building on concepts and models.
Knowing more about coaching is not the same as knowing coaching.
Our methodology allows the learners to:
listen to a concept or theory being presented
ask questions to clarify or to understand
express an opinion, disagreement or exception
share an experience
trigger opinions or discussion
learn the 'What' aspect of the theory in action by observing a live demonstration
learn the 'How' aspect by doing practice coaching
get feedback and mentoring tips
gain insights and own understanding
use the new learning in the next practice coaching
develop new skills/capabilities
