Following the outstanding feedback from our successful ILM 7 coach development programme for Chief Executives, we are launching a dedicated offer for Executive Directors within the South West region. This is a unique opportunity to become accredited as an Executive Coach to ILM level 7 alongside peers by gaining the theory, knowledge and practice to build effective coaching relationships with senior leaders.

You will create a safe learning community where you can experiment coaching techniques whilst also gaining an understanding of what it is like to be a coaching client. Whilst this development opportunity requires a high degree of commitment, you will be rewarded with powerful insights into the potential of Coaching and Mentoring.

The programme:

This 6-day highly experiential programme will introduce you to the background of coaching and the key fields, which have influenced its growth and practice. You will learn the fundamental pillars of great coaching conversations and the critical psychological models that underpin behaviour change. You will explore how to utilise a range of coaching styles and how to effectively use challenge to maximise your impact. You will also develop critical skills for developing an effective coaching programme and contract.

Previous participants have cited this programme as some of the most impactful leadership development they have ever experienced.

ILM 7 Accreditation:

To achieve the ILM 7 accreditation attendance is required on all modules, completion of 20 hours coaching practice and submission of a portfolio capturing your learning, knowledge and insights as a Coach. Full details of the portfolio are provided during the programme.

Additional Commitment:

During the programme, to join the South West Leadership Academy Coaching Register as a ‘Coach in Training’ – accessing our range of CPD whilst actively recording your coaching activity.
