Cardiff, United Kingdom, March 27, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- Executive coaching is becoming a nationwide phenomenon and organisations throughout the country should not miss out on the benefits that accompany it.
Training company, t2 business solutions, and reputed coaching company, Corporate and Executive Coaching Organisation (CECO), have teamed up to create a High Impact Executive Coaching open course, which launches next month.
Recent studies show that fourth fifths of UK respondents are currently utilising coaching in their organisation. Executive coaching can benefit organisations of all sizes through individual, dynamic and flexible learning. By incorporating personal goals and developments, coaching often results in a rapid performance improvement.
Neil Espin, Director of CECO said: “Coaching enables individuals to explore their personal purpose and link this directly to their role and contribution at work. A powerful tool, it also has a significant impact on businesses by bringing in new ways of thinking and challenging them.”
Coaching has experienced fast growth due to an evolving business environment, acceptance of new learning methods and increasing individual responsibility for personal development.
“Even though some HRD professionals have had concerns about coaching in the past, these concerns have been resolved through the increase of quality in coaching, and a multitude of professional bodies and associations now in existence,” Added Neil.
The open course, which will be held in t2 business solutions head office in Cardiff, will give organisations interested in incorporating coaching into their practices a chance to learn the basics and develop their learning through a two day course.
The course gives those new to coaching an introduction, and is endorsed by the Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM). It is also suitable for those considering a career as a coach and no prior knowledge is required.
The High Impact Coaching Course is delivered by two of the UK’s most experienced executive coaches. Neil and Vicki Espin have a combined experience of over 34 years and have delivered coaching to over 5000 individuals.
After completing the two-day open course, participants will have completed the first two modules of the ILM Level 7 Executive Coaching qualification. These can then be taken forward to complete the full ILM course. This qualification has been aimed at larger businesses and teams in the past, but the taster is now available to everyone, giving smaller organisations and individuals the opportunity to introduce coaching practices.
Dave Marr, Sales and Marketing Director of t2 business solutions said: “This course is an ideal stepping stone for those new to coaching. With no previous experience or knowledge necessary, all basics are covered and taken to the next step. t2 and CECO have created this course to enable participants to leaver with a sound understanding about the framework and tools for coaching successfully in an organisational environment.”
ILM is a premier awarding body with nearly 100 years combined experience in the field of leadership and management. Over half a million managers worldwide have improved on their own performance and brought real benefits to their organisations by undertaking ILM qualifications.
