Masterclass outline:
Too often as coaches we plough on in our work without having the opportunity to truly extend our perspectives and practices and to ground those on a solid foundation. This Masterclass presents the core components of an evidence-based approach to coaching as developed at the world-renowned University of Sydney’s Coaching Psychology Unit, and will extend coaching practitioners’ understanding in terms of coaching models and skills practice. In this Masterclass you will explore simple but powerful coaching models and practices which are solidly evidence-based and that will add real depth to your coaching practice. Pre-readings will be supplied.

This is a rare opportunity to work with Professor Anthony Grant from the University of Sydney’s Coaching Psychology Unit and to develop both your theoretical understanding and your coaching skill set.
