Our TPC Practitioner programme is an all-inclusive programme for leaders and people managers, HR professionals and consultants aiming to develop professional coaching skills and enable their clients to thrive.
The programme is ideal for purpose-driven individuals wanting to integrate high-quality coaching skills in their leadership and communication style, or to operate as external or internal coaches.
