  • Coaching Training Icon
    Coaching Training

    Coaching starts from a position of strength. It says that all of us have within us the ability and skill to develop and grow. It is not a deficit model. People don’t have coaching because there is something wrong with them, they have it to help them improve and build on their current performance so that they can be better. Coaching does encourage us to think back but only so that we can look forward. It’s what’s next that’s really important, not what has gone before. Coaching is not about fixing, it’s about improving performance. Think Back Look Forward provides bespoke training in coaching skills as well as ILM Level 3, 5 and 7 qualifications.

    Projects for 2017: ILM level 3, 5 and 7 Qualifications for South West Councils
