Coach Development

Our personal experience over many years of setting up and running the UK’s foremost internal coaching service, the BBC Coaching Network, puts us in a unique position to understand the organisational issues from the inside out. We want to share this experience with you, saving you time, energy and preventing potentially expensive mistakes. We can offer diagnostics to match your coaching strategy with your culture, templates and protocols, support with thinking through ethical and boundary issues, and advice on evaluation.

Whether you’re starting from scratch or are already some way down the line, we’d like to help. Learn more.

We can sum up in three words our philosophy on how to develop a coach: Feedback, feedback, feedback. We developed the BBC’s award-winning internal coaching development programme, the first in-company training scheme to gain intermediate accreditation from the European Mentoring and Coaching Council, by putting the needs of the internal coach first. A low ratio of trainers to participants, one-to-one mentoring and a total dedication to observed practice and feedback give our training the edge for organisations growing time-poor executives to be best practice coaches.

Supervision is a catalyst for learning. It’s a mirror for reflection, a place where unconscious processes are surfaced and unspoken assumptions voiced. It’s a partnership between equals with coaching excellence as its goal. In supervision, experience gives birth to wisdom. The heart of supervision is an intense inquiry into the coach’s practice in the service of present and future clients.

We offer one-to-one and group supervision to teams of internal coaches and independent practitioners. For independent coaches, we offer annual supervision contracts starting from just £95 per month.

We’re passionate about supervision. Let us share our passion with you. Get in touch.

Coach training is just the beginning and internal coaches need continuous development to fulfil their potential. We offer a range of workshops tailored to suit your coaching community, along with support for those interested in pursuing accreditation with one of the professional coaching bodies. We can provide anything from one-off subject specific events to a comprehensive blended learning development programme.

We believe an internal coaching group is a fantastic resource. Let us help you cultivate it.
