This is the advanced programme, consisting of four sections. Each section becomes a course in its own right if it is to be enrolled for separately. If you enroll for the advanced course as such [this page] your advanced programme journey effectively starts with the date mentioned. There are other onboarding dates also. Please inquire about other dates in the year where you can join the programme. Entering the journey now, participants will join the group as it was originally conceived to start with experiential narrative exposure in view of narrative coaching

Dates and structure

The programme is structured in four contact weeks. During these weeks participants will attend from 08:30/09:00 to 15:00. The group has some leeway in determining whether the contact week will continue up to the Friday at lunch or conclude on the Thursday afternoon. This depends on the content of the module and certain decisions the group will be required to make related to content and several other factors.

August 3-4, 10-11, 17 | Tuesday and Wednesday mornings between 08:15 – 12:15

1415406_81822709_aCoaching is about getting on-track and making the journey. Sometimes it is an athletics track, an outer journey (perhaps ‘performance or skills coaching’).
514153_42494384_aAt other times it is not at all a performance driven track but a mountain track, an inner-journey (for instance, transformational coaching, or coaching for purpose)
