What others say

The Coach Training was originally devised by our sister company, Human Systems (Business Psychologists) Ltd., and is now integrated into maximy. Read what some past delegates have said about the training.

"The Human Systems Executive Coaching Programme is a truly brilliant development opportunity. Whether you are an organisational leader looking for that extra 10% improvement in your performance or training to become a qualified Executive Coach, this course delivers. The blend of a wide and thought-provoking base of theory coupled with challenging experiential case studies makes for a learning triumph. I thoroughly recommend it."

Nic, MD, at a large defence organisation

"I would recommend this course to anyone - and have done to all my peers in banking. The course is excellent, especially the emphasis on practical and experiential coaching. Beyond this, the after-care to support accreditation is far better than any other programme provides. It is flexible to each person’s individual needs, comprehensive and the faculty are the best in business! I have learned so much from them and definitely benefited from the ongoing cpd support, which no other course I looked at even comes close to offering."
