Accredited Coach Training ProgramThe Certified Ontological Coaching and Leadership program is the most in-depth and comprehensive coach training program currently available in South Africa, Europe and the Asia Pacific region.

Ontological Coaching is an extraordinarily powerful methodology for effecting real change at the individual, team and organisational level. It is highly effective because it is based on a new practical understanding of the power of language, moods and conversations for behavioural and cultural change. As such, the Ontological Coaching Program is relevant to the professional fields of coaching, organisational consulting, management and leadership.

More than 250 people have participated in the Ontological Coaching Program (previously known as the Graduate Diploma of Ontological Coaching), which has been provided in Australia, South Africa, Asia and Europe. Graduates are currently active as coaches, consultants, facilitators and trainers applying the ontological methodology throughout Australia, Asia, South Africa and Europe.

“I have been astounded at the impact the program has made in my personal life and in my profession as an executive coach. I highly recommend this program to both experienced and aspiring coaches”
