Our Approach

Our approach to coaching and coach development combines scientific, evidence-based knowledge with extensive ‘real world’ practice experience accumulated across decades of coaching, consulting and teaching of coaching and coaching psychology.

Beginning with the principles of behavioural change, participants embark upon an intensive experiential learning process and supervised application of core coaching skills to develop their own systematic coaching practice.  Our approach blends examination of the science of human development and change, formal and informal supervised coaching practice and self-directed workplace coaching assignments.

ICCP’s coach training framework is unique, comprehensive and reflects the latest global research on effective practice. We distinguish between three types of coaching – a) skills coaching; b) performance coaching; and c) developmental coaching. The framework enables participants to identify and target specific coachee needs, tailor coaching interventions to match these differing needs, and appropriately assess impact and efficacy.
