About The Coaching Academy

Established in 1999, The Coaching Academy is now the largest training organisation of its kind in the world.

We're incredibly proud of the reputation we've developed since opening our doors. We started when coaching was a relatively new phenomenon and there weren't any other UK based training organisations for coaches. Now we find ourselves at the forefront of coach training and chosen by more people who want to professionally train in the practical skills of coaching than any other organisation.

"98% of attendees on our live training days rate the experience as above average or excellent"

Your training with us will always be instructive, informative and enjoyable and our team of trainers are hand-picked from the cream of the UK's finest coaches. They are all second to none and all bring with them a wealth of experience and qualifications.

Our MD Bev James, trained with The Coaching Academy herself, attending one of our free 2 day coaching courses back in 2005. Having experience as a delegate and a student of The Coaching Academy, there is no one more committed to ensuring our delivery is world class.

Our head office is based in Chiswick, London but our training takes place in various, carefully selected venues across the UK. We look forward to meeting you soon!

"I would recommend anyone thinking of becoming a coach to contact The Coaching Academy."

What we say can create or destroy rapport, but interestingly only 7% of communication is the spoken word. Our body language and our tone of voice are more important than the actual words spoken.

Limiting Beliefs

05/11/2012

Limiting beliefs are those things you believe about yourself that place limitations on your abilities. Limiting beliefs are simply assumptions about reality that are not true. In order for our actions to have the greatest positive effect, we need to have beliefs that are as close to reality as possible - deceiving ourselves will take us further from the goal.

GROW Model

02/11/2012

The GROW (Goal, Reality, Options, Will) model is the most common and widely used coaching tool. It empowers the coach to structure a coaching conversation and deliver a meaningful result. The GROW acronym suggests that a coach using the GROW model is likely to start by asking the client to set goals, both for what they want to get out of the coaching sessions as a whole and for each individual session.

Lucy has been struggling with a poor self-image for the past six years. She felt unattractive and strongly believed that men didnt find her sexy. She had a successful career as a management consultant but could not stop feeling bad about herself. Through our sessions, I discovered that Lucy had a younger sister.

Going For The Goal

14/05/2012 11:41:42

One of the core skills most coaches deal with is goal setting. It seems relatively straight forward, yet most of us and our clients find it hard to achieve the goals weve set, so lets take a good look at why that is and what we can do about it. The most common model for goal-setting is represented by the acronym SMART specific, measurable, achievable, realistic, and time based. The other element that is usually stressed is that the goal should be positive; for instance, instead of saying I will lose 20 pounds, one might say, I will have a stable, healthy weight of 12 stone.
