Q — What is the time commitment for this?
Time commitment is maximum of 4 hours per week made up of self-study and assignments (average is 1 hour per week directly related to your work (e.g. a meeting) so the additional reflection/analysis time is minimal, and group coaching calls with your peers (90 mins per week) which leaders have called a game-changer because they really help embed active practice of their skills.
Q — Is this a Self-Paced or Cohort programme?
This is a cohort programme for the Leaders Who Coach™ Enrichment Cohort Certificate which is comprised of 2/3 self-paced study and 1/3 group cohort study. We’ll share a sample schedule with you during the Information Session.

The programme is approximately 4 months including on-boarding and wrap up and 2 x one-week breaks. We cover one skill per week and there are 12 skill across four competencies — you can check out the full curriculum and videos here.
Q — Why is there no fee?
We want to achieve two key goals: A) establish coaching skills as a standard and critical skill that leaders actively demonstrate for their own benefit and that of their teams and organisation, and B) shift the trajectory of productivity and happiness in the workplace to a much better place. We believe this programme helps us meet those goals in the short-term and well into the future, especially as Leaders Who Coach™ find themselves naturally compelled to pass on their knowledge and skills. Speaking of which…
Q — How can I pay this opportunity forward?
