What others say
“The AoEC’s Team Coaching Fundamentals programme is a beautifully designed learning experience. There is a tremendously engaging mixture of discussion, theory, and application. The framework used is strong and the scenarios and role play really succeed in bringing the subject to life. This programme really helped me to broaden my coaching knowledge and get to grips with the idea of coaching within a system. As an internal coach within a large global organisation the knowledge gained has been invaluable. Highly recommended.”
Paul Williamson - Ambassador Theatre Group (completed pilot programme)
“A great introduction to team coaching. The learning experience was enhanced both by coaching practice and by the way that the course was designed around the AoEC team coaching competency framework”
