Our Coaching programmes are suitable for professionals working in areas of social development (teachers, trainers, consultants, HR professionals) and/or social support services (social workers, nurses, therapists). They are also useful to those working in service industries with a strong client orientation (such as tourism and hospitality) who would like to develop their people skills and improve their interpersonal communication and client relationship skills.
