“Extremely Beneficial”

The ILM qualification programme through Coaching focus was extremely beneficial and has allowed me the opportunity to reflect upon myself and my organisation on how I can adapt my approach to get the best out of my abilities and how my organisation can benefit from a coaching culture.  All the tutors have helped me develop ways to deal with situations using thought provoking questions, my own knowledge and self-awareness. It’s been a great process and one which has challenged me to become a better leader for myself and my team. Through doing this qualification, I have gone onto influence and create a coaching culture within my organisation. Thanks, Coaching Focus!

“I thoroughly enjoyed [it]”

I thoroughly enjoyed the ILM Coaching and Mentoring in the Workplace qualification offered by Coaching Focus. The course materials and interactive sessions were thorough, full of practical tools and real life insight. Being ‘forced’ to put my new skills into practice was an essential part of the course and my learning. Since completing the course I have been able to continue coaching, making a positive difference to other people’s lives, which is the part of my job that brings me the most fulfilment. It has also helped me to reflect more on my own approach to work and life, and given me a fresh approach to parenting four teenagers which is an excellent bonus!

“positive impact...on the business”

I enjoyed the training for the ILM course and found that the tutor was able to quickly nurture a group of novices to a point where we were confident to hold hour long coaching conversations. Since qualifying I’ve brought Coaching into my workplace by using coaching techniques in the way that I manage my team. I’ve also formally coached colleagues within the wider organisation. The formal coaching has been particularly rewarding as I’ve been able to witness people grow and the positive impact it’s had on the business.

“Coaching was a beacon of light in the dark”

In 2016, I was at a crossroads in my life, both professionally and personally. Coaching was a beacon of light in the dark, providing focus to chaos and emptiness. After I realised how powerful coaching was, I asked my organisation to get trained. Then, I was enrolled in a coaching program by Coaching Focus! This was a defining moment in my life's choices, and the relationship between Coaching Focus and I grew stronger as we worked through the modules to cover two key parts: getting you prepared to cover the academic part of the training, and making you a great coach. I've been coaching for a few years, and I'm still learning new things all the time. It's given me the confidence to help grow others and leave them with a lasting impression about coaching that Coaching Focus injects into their learners

“If you're committed to in-depth study and practice...I highly recommend Coaching Focus.”

Since 2016, I've coached with Fidessa (now ION Group) using the GROW model. In 2021, I joined the Coaching Focus “Manager as Coach” programme and later the “ILM 5 qualification” programme. The hands-on practice and feedback were invaluable. The training equipped me to offer top-notch executive coaching programmes... I'm on track to earn the ILM qualification after 16 months. If you're committed to in-depth study and practice, I highly recommend Coaching Focus. They've also supported the ION Group in training managers using the LEAP model. I endorse Coaching Focus for introducing coaching skills to any organisation.
