There are many professionals out there who call themselves Coaches. Do I need any qualification to be a Coach?
In recent years, the “Coach” title have increasingly been used as a marketing buzzword. This has created a lot of confusion in the industry as to what a “Coach” role should be. More organisations are becoming aware about this issue, and they are now hiring coaches that have the necessary qualifications and credentials. As such, it will become important in the coming years to have the appropriate qualifications as a coach.
Consultants are professionals that provide expert advice in their field of expertise. They provide solutions to address the clients problem.
Coaches on the other hand do not provide any solution or advice to their clients. A coach believes that the client is creative and resourceful, and are in the best position to derive the solution for themselves. Through a process of listening and questioning, the coach helps to create self-awareness and discovery, and empowers the client to achieve his goals.

Our training are face-to-face interactive learning environment. While we do understand the benefits of online learning, we believe that coaching skills are best learnt through experiential learning, not just with the facilitators but also through the interaction with your peer learners. Our minds are conditioned by our past experiences, values and beliefs, which shapes our perception and interpretation of situations and knowledge that we acquire. It’s only through the face-to-face interaction with the facilitators and peer learners that we realise there are many views behind what we thought it might be.
We understand how adult learn. We have designed and refined our program over the years with the right level of activities, games, facilitated learning, group discussion, coaching practicum that will bring the best learning value to our participants.
Moreover, our facilitators have over twenty five years of leadership experience, holding senior regional management positions in large MNCs and organisations. Having led and coached regional teams, the facilitators are able to understand participants challenges and share their experience. See what some of our past graduates have to say.
