COACHING SMOACHING...

You may well have been on a 'coaching course' at work - but then, were you able to use those skills? Probably not. And here's the reason why; you were probably being taught how to be an Executive Coach rather than how to incorporate coaching into your day-to-day work. But work just isn't made up of a series of warm, connected 'sit-down' coaching sessions is it? Square peg, round hole...

After a decade of providing coaching to organisations, we could see all the good intentions behind the myriad of training courses out there. Our clients could also see that they weren't landing.

A different peg was needed. So at Notion, we rededicated ourselves to cracking the coaching code... how could we get coaching to work inside organisations?

The result is a range of prestigious qualifications leveraging our knowledge and expertise in the sector, set around award-winning innovative programmes and offering you maximum personal choice and flexibility..... and for those of you that want to go on to become an Internal or Executive Coach we have programmes for you too!


IT'S ALWAYS AN HONOUR

Over the last two decades it's been an honour to have worked with thousands of learners and clients from literally all sectors.

Here is just a small range of organisations that the managers joining our programmes have come from...


...so you'll be in good company




CHOOSING THE BEST PROGRAMME FOR YOU

The information in our brochure should help you start to consider what type of programme you're looking for and which format you'll most enjoy. Remember...there is no bad choice, as you can move and upgrade through the programmes over time.

IN-HOUSE PROGRAMMES ARE AVAILABLE TOO..

Notion's programmes are regularly run in-house, should that be a preference. Also, some of our clients choose to incorporate the STAR® modules into their existing management or leadership development programmes - wrapping any bespoke needs around the online learning by delivering internal workshops at the beginning, middle and end of the online modules; the options are endless.

DO YOU HAVE A PREFERRED FORMAT?

Choose between Online Digital Programmes, Interactive Zoom Workshops and Face-to-Face programmes...

WHAT DO YOU WANT TO ACHIEVE? 

Do you want to:

Improve your day-to-day management and leadership skills?Proactively develop your team?
Become an Internal Coach?
Become an Executive Coach working with senior leaders?


HOW MUCH TIME DO YOU HAVE & HOW MUCH COMMITMENT WILL YOU MAKE?

The Level 3, 4 and 5 STAR® programmes can all be completed with minimal disruption to your day-to-day working life. Bite-sized 30-minute sessions a few times a week will see you completing the qualifications within 3-6 months.

The OCP®, AIC® and Level 7 programmes, on the other hand, require you committing to make specific diarised sessions ranging from half-days to 2 days at a time, plus a slightly wider range of structured additional work. The Level 7 also requires a larger commitment of 20 hours of coaching, additional reading and a number of written assignments you'll have to complete, so you need to have a very high level of commitment for this postgraduate level programme.
