  • Excellent! This is very useful in my daily business life. Im committed in using coaching skills in every possible coachable moment and I would highly recommend senior business leaders to take this coaching training. This is the most dedicated and concentrated I have ever been in a programme!

    Davis Tsai
    Managing Director, Microsoft, Taiwan
  • I was not sure if I would be able to apply coaching skills, rather than have the interest to learn what a coach is. However, by the time I walked out from the programme I am looking for any coachable moment to apply. It has renewed my spirit.

  • Our bank has worked with Coaching Australia for over a year, and Lisa has helped build coaching mindsets and capability within a number of our senior HR leaders across the Asia Pacific region. The impact our association has had is clear, and validated through examples of senior HR business partners consciously choosing a coaching conversational style in crucial conversations with the business. The programme itself has been a thorough joy for me. Thanks for all your hard work to get us here!
