This course is open to anyone that is interested in learning about Coaching and how to use coaching skills to get results. It will teach you some of the core models of Coaching, including the GROW Model and The Wheel of Life. It assumes no prior knowledge and teaches you the core skills you need to be an effective Coach.
You can attend this course without any pre-requisite training. However I do recommend that you complete the NLP Practitioner first.
