Unit 1: Introduction to Coaching – Self-awareness 
  
The first unit provides trainees with a basic understanding of what coaching is, familiarizes them with the ethical rules and ethics that govern their practice, and introduces them to the basic skills needed to be a successful coach. Using the fundamentals of positive psychology, particular emphasis is placed on the first unit, exploring the personality of the participants, to identify their strengths as future coaches and opportunities for improvement.
 
Unit 2: Coaching Skills
 
The second unit includes detailed training in leadership skills based on three main models: the model of Coaching Clinic from CCU, which includes the steps and techniques for coaching within and outside organizations, the model of American Management Association (AMA) for High Performance Coaching and Solution Focused Coaching from MDI.  In each model, trainees specialize in multiple techniques at the theoretical and experiential level, covering all stages of the coaching process (beginning, middle, and completion), while analyzing their personal preferred style of guidance through the PCSI questionnaire.
 
Unit 3: Trends and Challenges in Today’s Business Environment 
 
Third Unit presents the modern business reality and the challenges that arise in organization’s operation, problem solving, processes of setting and achieving goals, managing people and processes and change confrontation caused by the economic and social crisis in Greece. The purpose of the unit is for the coach to understand the environment in which his future clients live, work and develop (internal or external), so that he can then guide them by applying appropriate techniques. Using case studies from organizations, participants examine and analyze coaching issues and increase their readiness to recognize coaching challenges and address them effectively.
 
Unit 4: Personal & Interpersonal Development
 
In this unit, trainees participate in multiple experiential workshops on personal and interpersonal skills, which are a key criterion for success in coaching. These include workshops on empathy, communication, conflict investigation, mediation and facilitation of choice identification and decision making. The acquisition of knowledge and skills in the above subjects works complementary and reinforces the knowledge provided by the other unit as the coach develops internally and ensures effective, quality and successful coaching.
 
Unit 5: Practicum 
 
Fifth unit includes practical application of the techniques and knowledge developed during the programme. Trainees participate in hands-on exercises, alternately playing the role of coach and coachee. The practical implementation takes place at designated meetings between modules 1 - 4 and immediately after completion.
 
More details
 
The training includes theoretical and practical knowledge in the subjects mentioned above, which are presented through power points, case studies, experiential exercises, group discussions etc. Assessment is done through assignments, personal development calendar, participation and evaluation in coaching sessions and  individual case report presented by participants upon completion of training.
 
The programme runs on Fridays and Saturdays.
