Coaching is now a critical skill for any leader. Our unique Coaching Academy gives leaders the ability and confidence to coach executives or high-performing teams. It focuses staff development on individuals and empowers people to deliver better business outcomes and achieve valuable leadership growth. Coaching Academy gives participants structured and pragmatic skills and tools so they can become successful coaches who drive their organisation's success.
WHO IS COACHING ACADEMY FOR?
Coaching Academy is designed to build your leadership coaching capability to enhance the performance of others. The program addresses the capability-building needs of two cohorts:
Executives, managers and other organisational leaders who wish to contribute to the development of a coaching culture within their organisation and deliver better business outcomes;
Executives and professionals who would like to transition into an independent coaching consultancy.
We equip you to become executive coaches with the potential to make a real difference. We provide cutting edge coaching models, skills and practical know-how so that you can build a best-practice coaching capability. Our leadership resources, programs, tools and templates provide a toolkit for developing executive excellence in others. We enable success through mentoring, a community of support and regular follow-up. The Coaching Academy format is a great blend of input and action: we get your ‘coaching rubber’ hitting the road with live clients.
Our unique “Live Coaching” component gives participants the opportunity to work with their first coaching client, or coachee, in a supported, safe environment. This enables participants to build on their new coaching skills, gain confidence, and develop trust immediately in a real business context.
After learning from experts with over 25 years' experience, participants will walk away with the practical experience and techniques to become a world-class leader or coach.

What our clients say
"I came into this program with a wealth of HR experience and Coaching Academy has enabled me to actually think ‘you know what, I can help this person with more than just redirecting and questioning’. I can give them advice or I can facilitate them in some development program. So a big change for my leadership style since going through Coaching Academy is that where I saw myself primarily as a colleague to senior leaders — and I still do — I also now see my role as the HR lead in a business being to coach and mentor to that entire leadership group regularly."
Managing Director People Capability Partners
"Executive Central’s Coaching Academy is practical and it’s real. You can employ the lessons learned from day one. You don’t have to be an executive coach per se, you can be a leader within your organisation. Coaching Academy gives you tools that you can use when working with your people and be able to say to them: ‘actually, here’s something — a concept or approach — you can use in that situation’. People can apply that approach immediately. I found that after Coaching Academy I was able to do that more effectively using the additional tools and model that I’d gained."
Executive Manager Talent within People Experience, Suncorp
"One of the biggest things that can make you feel somewhat ineffective as an executive and leadership coach is that you can often easily get to the root cause of someone’s challenge but not be able to help them fix it immediately. Executive Central’s Coaching Academy has given me some really practical and effective tools to use when having those conversations, so that I can actually assist people then and there and that has been the greatest benefit to me."
