I enrolled to the coaching training because I wanted to learn a new job. But I realized I also learned a new way of thinking. This training changed the way I interact with others, it also changed me because if you want to be a coach, you need to first know who you are. Reaching that level of self-awareness is not an easy exercise, but you can count on the trust and support of the other participants and supervisors. I will never forget these 6 months: for all of us, there will definitely be a before and an after. I think everybody should take this training once in their life!

Koupil jsem si třídenní výcvik Gestalt technik v koučování a očekával jsem obohacení svých koučovacích dovedností. Získal jsem však něco úplně jiného - nový rozměr toho, co znamená přítomnost kouče a jak může probíhat spoluvytváření koučovacího vztahu tady a teď, kontextu učení a dynamiky procesu. Očekával jsem techniky a objevil jsem novou dimenzi toho, že to může fungovat i úplně jinak.

A positive life changing experience, which gave me deep understanding and insight into the way others communicate and into myself. Highly recommended.

The Practitioner training brought more to me than any other training until now. It taught me way beyond simply "coaching tools" which are most commonly used in practice, when communicating with colleagues, subordinates and superiors - it brought insights into the human psyche and self-knowledge.
Jiří Petřík, Production Manager, LEAR Corporation
I realized the importance of inner power, how everyone is unique and the potential in the core of every human. I discovered the importance of rapport, listening, not-judgement, strength of support and importance of feedback.
Jiří Urbanec, Managing Director, ASSA ABLOY Entrance Systems
The basic reason why I decided to attend Academy of Coaching Excellence was that I felt that I coach very instinctively and wanted to do it in a more systematic way. ACE provided me with a lot of theoretical knowledge but also with the possibility to practice coaching in a safe environment and get immediate feedback from my peers. During four modules we met four trainers and each one of them brought their own experience, personality and coaching style. I also learnt how to coach myself and it helps me when I face challenging situations in professional career and private life.

I came to learn some more structured coaching methodology and practice. I expected to do a fair bit of learning from texts and tutor led sessions. I expected a fair amount of theoretical material. I was most pleased to find out that hte course way for more practically oriented than I expected. Coaching practice in a very wide variety of techniques was delivered. These was just enough theoretical learning to introduce the material, but the key element was the repeated practice and feedback sessions. The other vital was the interaction with the order course participants. The variety of personalities, backgrounds and styles really made the learning much were practically useful and real.
When I was looking for solution to create pool of internal / external coaches that would support several of our development programs, I found the most capable provider on the market to be Coaching Systems. After initial meeting with them, where their main focus was on our needs and not their products, we decided to enroll the entire management team of our company for the Academy of Coaching Excellence and haven’t regretted this decision and investment since. The ACE training not only equipped our managers with variety of different tools to become effective coaches for our development programs, but was a great development opportunity for them as individuals and we received excellent feedback on the program from them. I can only recommend attending the ACE to any manager who wants to enrich their management style with effective ways how to work with individual and team potential.
