Cambridge Advanced Executive Coaching Programme

Dates: Monday 7 October 2024 - Thursday 15 May 2025

Transformational coaching

In a fast-speed, globally competitive and complex world, organisation leaders must act quickly, decisively and confidently.

The value of a trusted, business-orientated confidant to highlight their ‘blind spots’, help them explore confidential topics and weigh-up options has never been greater.

Being that reality check for senior leaders is a hugely rewarding, important and influential role in any organisation.

With the Cambridge Advanced Executive Coaching Programme, you can take your coaching practice to the next level, whilst supporting leaders to avoid pitfalls and drive sustainable performance.

Key features

The Advanced Executive Coaching Programme is a full-board, immersive, modular programme is designed to equip experienced coaches with all they need to accelerate their coaching practice. It will prepare them to advance into the executive coaching of organisation leaders: founders, partners, directors, board members, CEOs (and the rest of the C-suite).

With three modules running over approximately nine months – and requisite inter-modular practice and reading, plus evidence of 60 hours of coaching delivered – this highly experiential and interactive programme provides both personal and organisational impact for the experienced coach.

The three modules are:

Learning outcomes

The Cambridge Advanced Executive Coaching Programme equips its participants with the knowledge, skills and capacities for them to respond with empathy, resilience and presence to the emotional and psychological dimensions presented by executives in the coaching environment.

The programme provides you with the following distinct but inter-connected learning outcomes. By the end of the programme, you will be able to:

  • Establish, build and sustain value-adding coaching relationships with CEOs, directors, partners and senior leaders.
  • Demonstrate expert knowledge and deep understanding of the art and practice of executive coaching.
  • Be highly aware of self, client and the co-created reality within the coaching relationship.
  • Coach ethically, safely and responsibly.
  • Be aware of the systemic influences within coaching;
  • Work with the emergent psychological and emotional dimensions within executive coaching.
  • Demonstrate a clear coaching presence and personal resilience.
  • Understand and apply psychologically informed coaching approaches and methodologies; and
  • Demonstrate the benefits of regular supervision and enhanced reflective practice.

I can say this without hesitation that attending the Cambridge Advanced Executive Coaching Programme was one of the most impactful experiences of my life… it made me a better coach as well as a human being. It was a personal transformational experience, it opened my ears to hear what was not said, and my eyes to see what was not shown. I was encouraged, challenged, and inspired daily to meet my clients where they are with authenticity, humility, and openness. It was a joy to take this unique journey of self-reflection and improvement, and I can truly-say that this programme is the best gift you can give yourself to make an impact upon the world.
