GROW© Certified Business Coach is taught by our certified PCC/MCC-level coaches/trainers according to the HILL method (High Impact Learning that Lasts). The classical training is combined with intermediate assignments, distance learning, feedback and encouragement to improve your skills.


With this programme you engage in a continuous learning process, a mature way of learning in which you keep your finger on the pulse of what’s going on in today’s society … and tomorrow, with an open mind and curiosity. You personally evolve from an ‘interpretative or narrative mode’ to a non-judgmental ‘listening and questioning mode’. This is the best way to stimulate new choices, answers and determination. As a manager or coach, you enhance your toolbox with powerful competencies which make the difference in professional working relationships and are really impactful. By confronting contradictions and links, for example, you support a change in the habits of your coachees. Managers and coaches who engage in process learning dare to leave their comfort zone and continue to grow both professionally and personally.


As a participant, we want to provide you with the best possible training experience throughout the training programme, which will also have a real effect on your competencies and attitude as a coach. That’s why we also add an aspect of Interactive Content & Feedback Learning: this is experience learning at its best. The aim is to increase your decisiveness so that you can deal with ‘unforeseen factors’ in coaching and leadership in a flexible way. And of course that fits in perfectly with today’s ‘Volatile, Uncertain, Complex & Ambiguous’ society. Your training will become less technical and more an ‘experience’ of coaching as a profession.


Our objectives:

  • Practically apply your coaching competencies: less theory, more guided coaching with direct feedback and an action and reflection plan
  • More involvement in your own learning process: less scholastic, more ownership
  • More depth in your own learning process
  • More preparation for each module so you can go straight into learning mode: pre-reading (white papers, book summary, …), pre-reflection (question assignments, …), pre-tasking (videos, self-observations, …)


In short: GROW© Certified Business Coach is the spearhead of coaching and leadership in a changing world.
