Coaching.

Great coaches strengthen and empower the people that they coach, push them to grow and develop, and help them become better at whatever it is they do. For more than 25 years, we have helped leaders build coaching skill.

Proven

Our coaching approach is rooted in work with 50+ Olympic medal-winning coaches, is embedded in the team-based MBA and EMBA programs at Queen's Smith School of Business, and has been embraced by over 30,000 leaders.

Practical

Coaching can be a 30 second piece of feedback or a 45-minute 1:1 discussion. Our practical set of tools gives people the ability to seize every coaching opportunity by deploying the right approach at the right moment.

Taught by the best

Our faculty are true experts - not talking heads - and are joined in every program by guest appearances from our extensive network of Olympic medal-winning coaches and athletes.
