Programme overview:

Coaching as a profession has grown rapidly over the past 5 years and continues to go from strength to strength, being adopted as an effective and impactful approach in a wide range of small, medium and large organisations in the public, private and charity sectors. The broad purpose of coaching is to empower people to find their own solutions and to take accountability for their own performance and progression whilst at the same time aligning personal goals with those of the organisation.

Coaching is increasingly being adopted as a leadership approach with more and more organisations investing in building a coaching culture which in turn support staff retention and improves employee engagement levels – in short, a coaching culture leads to higher performing individuals, teams and organisations. 

This programme delves deep into individuals’ underlying assumptions, beliefs and values to enable them to increase their ability to build strong relationships and to recognise their own impacts on those around them. It considers how people think, feel and make decisions and how people learn and adapt to change whilst considering the organisation’s strategic purpose and addressing any barriers to achieving that. With a strong focus on people, building confidence and self-efficacy, change management, career progression, outstanding communication and self-awareness as a tool to see situations from a range of perspectives in order to make effective decisions, this is a course for anyone working with people.

Examples of coaching roles : In-house Coach, Performance Coaching, Career Coaching, Leadership Coaching, Team Coaching, Sales Coaching, Wellbeing Coaching, Exam Coaching, Confidence Coaching, Conflict Resolution Coaching, Student progress Coaching, Pastoral Coach, Behaviour Change Coaching, Motivational Interviewing for change, Change Coaching, Coaching for HR/L&D Professionals, Mid-Career Coaching

Why choose MBKB


Topics covered

Fundamentals of coaching
What coaching is and is not, how it is different from other interventions, the roles and responsibilities of a coach, uses and benefits of coaching, core skills and attributes required of a coach and effective contracting.
Self-Awareness as a coach
An enlightening and impactful look into who we are as people and professionals, our personality preferences, our values, beliefs and biases, our own blind spots and ‘hidden self’ and an open and honest look at where we are now, where we’re going and planning for how we will get there.
Advanced Communication skills
Communication in coaching is more advanced and more impactful than general day to day communication. We explore what it means to actively listen, to refrain from judgement, to hold the silence, to ask impactful questions and how to use other non-verbal clues to support someone to go further in their thinking.
Psychology and Coaching
Considering a range of psychological approaches to help us to understand better how people think, feel and behave and how different approaches may be more or less helpful for particular people. We will also take a light touch look at cognitive functions, neuroplasticity and how our thoughts can shape our choices and views of the world.
Coaching Models and tools
Exploring a range of coaching models, tools and techniques to support your practice and ability to have impactful coaching conversations that lead to insight, change and progression.
Theories of Learning
In order to change and to [progress we need to be able to learn so in this unit we will look at the psychology of learning focusing specifically on adults and how they learn, process and develop new thinking patterns in order to change limiting beliefs and behaviours
Effective Feedback and Relationship Management
Coaching is built on effective, trusting and honest relationships and a part of that is having the courage to share meaningful yet non-directive feedback. In this unit, we consider how to use models to support us in giving feedback that is helpful to people whilst protecting the relationships that help us to work well together.
Professional Conduct and Ethics
A coach is a privileged and trusted position and with that comes the responsibility to act in a way that is safe, ethical and within our professional competence and boundaries. Here we look at the regulatory bodies that set out ethical practice and build our confidence in knowing what our boundaries are and how we can practice safely and effectively.
Coaching Conversations
The idea of a coaching conversation is that it is impactful, transformational and has a focus or goal that we work towards. In this unit, we look at how we can create a ‘container’ for a coaching conversation so that we are maximising the benefits and outcomes of our time spent together.
Stakeholder Management and ROI
Here we will look at how you can influence key stakeholders to support the development and embedding of a coaching culture whilst taking a logical and measurable approach to demonstrating the return on investment in the intervention.
Coaching in an Organisational Context
Coaching does not exist in a vacuum and an organisation’s culture can shape the effectiveness and impact of coaching. We will consider a range of leadership tyles and cultures and how we can align individual goals with organisational strategic purpose and goals.

We do things a little differently here at MBKB and as part of that we believe in supporting you to be the coach you want and need to be.  Taking a flexible, bespoke and creative approach to planning we are able to align your journey with your own preferences, interests, strengths and workplace needs so chat to us now to see how we build the programme around you to support this.
