  • We will guide you in the process of gaining experience and confidence in your coaching and mentoring abilities – amongst other ways, through practical coaching/mentoring assignments (with feedback from clients) and supervision by trained coach trainers.
    …..
  • We will ensure that you get exposure to the use of technology in coaching and mentoring;
    …..
  • We teach you how to utilize feedback from clients to grow in effectiveness;
    …..
