Coaching and Facilitation Skills Development

Every individual must be given the opportunity to unearth his/her highest potential

Lailah Gifty Akita

Our coaching and facilitation programmes enable individuals to develop, practice and extend their skills.

Whether you are new to coaching or facilitation or wanting to enhance your existing skills, we have a choice of open programmes and the capability to deliver bespoke programmes for your organisation.

Our open courses run at regular intervals throughout the year and are residential on our Brathay Estate in Cumbria. Bespoke courses can be run from any location to suit your organisation.

Coaching Leader Programme

We have developed a new Coaching Leader Programme that goes beyond standard frameworks of coaching.

We will equip you with conversational coaching language and techniques that you can use flexibly and integrate effectively into your professional role.

As a result of the programme you will be able to:

  • Provide workplace coaching
  • Integrate coaching language, rapport building and listening techniques into your current role and professional interactions.

The programme has been designed for managers, supervisors, teachers and consultants.

The content and its application will bring considerable value to any professional who manages the performance and development of others, enhancing your ability to engage, empower and improve performance.


Please contact us for further information and availability on the next Coaching Leader Programme at Brathay Hall.

I can genuinely see where each aspect of the Coaching Leader Programme is relevant it has been incredibly enlightening.
