I have worked with CfC across a number of diverse geographies over the last 9 years (in Africa and central Asia) and I have been hugely impressed by their approach, skills and ability. What has been particularly of note is their ability to understand and appreciate different cultures / team dynamics and to adapt the programs for differing audiences and situations. Their input has been a significant element in delivering demonstrable improvement in both the business delivery and in leadership development (both individual and team) and helping achieve real business turnaround (from decline to growth on all KPI’s – Volume, share, turnover and profit) and a step change in developing a sustainable highly effective local talent pipeline.
“Thank you for providing a course that has resulted in me finding not only new skills, but also a new way of being. Thank you especially for the innovation and dedication that you and the wonderful members of your faculty have shown – it is such an excellent modelling of how we are to be in this world. Was about to say it goes without saying…, but I will stop and say, before I go, that I received enormous value from the course, and that I think you and those members of faculty who gave of their time and input to guide us are providing a service that is truly noteworthy and necessary for future-proofing. Thank you to you all.”
PCC is an in-depth journey of human discovery. Discovery of SELF and discovery of THE OTHER. Our modern western society has conditioned us to look for answers outside, to find meaning and validation in the external world, when, in fact, one needs to start WITHIN. True and lasting transformation starts with(in) the individual, at the individual level. Coaching, at its core, is about the art (and science) of masterful INQUIRY, formulating powerful and timely questions that have the possibility to change or expand a person’s perspective and way of seeing and showing up in the world. PCC equips you for this process, robustly. It enables you, not only to uncover the many layers and the armour that you did not know you had built up over a lifetime yourself, and how to proceed purposefully and impactfully with this new awareness, but it simultaneously prepares you to activate and enable this transformative process for others. What a privilege. The course design and delivery are world class, the level of detail and the rigour rare. I would recommend PCC to anyone who is seriously curious about the human condition and who seeks to unlock and unleash human potential, for themself and for others.
“The course was very well structured and set up in an inspiring environment at Château de Bossey, Switzerland. The tools shown in the theoretical blocks were easy to understand and after a short time we already delved into first practical exercises. These practical exercises helped a lot to internalize and strenghten the before shown tools. Craig, Daniel and Marysia guided through the course in a very congenial, authentic, clear and concise manner. Within a short time a group of strangers with completely different backgrounds got to know each other well. That set the foundation to share a wealth of our personal experiences, trials and tribulations in a very open manner. I left the course “Leading through Coaching” very inspired and with a lot of ideas. As usual after any course, it is down to practising what you have learned and implementing your ideas step by step. Given the easy to remember and applicable tools I have had numerous opportunitites to do so since the completion of the course and feel more energised than before. The tools also help me when I am pondering over any issues and to finally come up with creative solutions ».
[CfD] for me was everything a coaching course could possibly provide, and so much more. Beside the models, tools and techniques to equip me as a coach, I’ve discovered such a solid base for pretty much any interaction in my professional and personal life now. I am simply amazed by the depth and wealth of conversations I am able to hold now. The course is hard work, for sure, but the outcome is so rich that it’s been totally worth it!
“Accessible in any location. The online CfD offering is an excellent example of adapting to change in real time – well done!”
Thanks so very much for creating such a special learning experience. Among the many things that I appreciate collectively about the Centre for Coaching Faculty are: – providing a safe environment for personal learning – your depth of knowledge, expertise and experience in coaching – planting the seeds of life long friendships – allowing the uniqueness and contribution of each delegate to shine – providing the materials and tools to more effective learning – setting the assignments that made the learning experience very real – choosing a superb location, with harmony and stillness – providing a toolkit for life Most importantly I really appreciate that you have given me a better understanding of human beings.
“I have had the privilege of working closely with Janine and Craig, both on an individual 1-2-1 level and within the context of a wider a leadership team environment. On both levels, I have benefitted significantly from their coaching and insights. They bring objectivity and clarity of thought to often complex challenges within team dynamics and in terms of personal development. I would strongly recommend the Centre for Coaching to any individual or team that is committed to personal growth and/or evolving as a team”
“Coaching is a way of helping business leaders to see possibilities they could not see before and explore these in a safe, trusting environment. It is based on values, which transcend culture. Respect is respect, no matter where you come from. Coaching transformed the lives of many of our staff. The behavioural changes are cascading down through the organisation very nicely.”
