How we run our course. Course dates and fees.


  • We ask participants to read course material where possible before we then deepen in dialogue.
  • We keep to max 15 mins of theory bursts with minimal use of PowerPoint.
  • Regular breakouts in small groups to keep a high level of interaction and deepen understanding of the theory. Where possible, we have a member of the faculty present to facilitate the discussion / answer questions.

Own experience:

Adults learn through their own experience. We focus on real issues, not role play.

Safe environment:

We take the time to create a safe, non-judgmental / confidential space to facilitate exploration and open curiosity.

Anchor learning:

Participants anchor their learning on what really happens to them and their Organisation (i.e., apply to themselves and to each other, not told).


We ensure the framework is in place for participants to hold one another accountable.

“Zoom fatigue”:

Regular breaks: to keep the energy & engagement high, a short 5-10 min break every hour, including a body exercise (stretching, breathing, standing), works. This replaces coffee/tea breaks. We take an hour break for lunch.

High faculty-to-participant ratio:

To ensure an optimum online learning experience, the ratio of faculty to participant should be 1:5. We can offer this ratio by using the Centre for Coaching’s large international faculty of professional integral coaches who have all trained with us and who have been supporting our academic and/or organizational programs for a number of years.
