Learn the foundation skills of being a coach

Our first module of the IPCP framework, is designed to provide the foundational coaching skills required for you to become a world-class coach. You’ll learn about the construction of your own thinking and personality, in order to better understand and serve your clients.

Coaching Foundations Overview

This pathway introduces you to the psychology of human behaviour and looks at your development as a potential coach and human being. It is designed to teach you how to run your own brain so that you can facilitate the same result within others as a coach. The programme will train you in the basic skills of Coaching - Listening, Supporting, Precise Questioning, Meta Questioning and Well-Formed Goal Setting.

We will also introduce you to your construction of self, using the latest psychological theory on personality development. You will learn how to recognise your construction in order to recognise your clients’ construction, thus giving you a unique benchmark for their vertical development. This is called Coaching 2.0 and was developed in England by Dr Darren Stevens as part of his Constructed Development Theory.

The Coaching 2.0 framework uses Intention, Awareness, Choice and Response as the basis for understanding how the client constructs their thinking. We start with their construction of self regardless of the problem they are trying to solve. 


As coaches, what are we listening for?

In Coaching 2.0, we are listening for the client’s unconscious Intention, level of Awareness, resultant limited Choices and finally how they habitually Respond. In essence: how the client’s habituated Thinking Style impacts their construction of, and ability to solve their problem. No other system uses CDT, the Awareness Quotient (AQ) and Dynamic Intelligence as the foundation for their coaching approach.

We will introduce you to Cognitive Intentions, Thinking Styles, levels of Self-Awareness via the Awareness Quotient and more! CDT focuses on bringing those 50 Cognitive Intentions (habituated thinking patterns) into awareness to provide you, the coach, with more choice in your response in the moment. This will make you a more dynamically Intelligent coach, something no other programme offers.
