“I am a lifelong learner and this has been the best course I’ve ever done! It’s given me a heightened level of self-awareness.”
-Louise Donhagy, Professional Coaching Certificate alumna
“I’ve always been passionate about mentoring leaders and developing high performing teams. This certificate offered the best combination of practical learning and academic theory. I’ve learnt the human brain has the capacity to rewire itself to new, more positive ways of thinking, which gives individuals the power to step out of their conditioning.”
