And this is what they’ve said about it:

‘I thoroughly enjoyed the programme, despite my initial concerns about how it would run virtually. Every session ran smoothly and the group was still able to connect, especially as a result of the breakout sessions that were incorporated into each session.’

‘I had a very good experience and glad I chose Maximum Performance as my coaching training provider. I really liked Elizabeth and Rosanne’s style of coaching and was really grateful for the emphasis on individuality during each session. Progress was definitely celebrated and honest feedback provided which enhanced my learning even more.’

‘I have left absolutely wanting to embrace my learning and wanting to become the best coach I can be. Every day on the course challenged me to do things I would not normally do – I felt invigorated!’

I loved both of the group webinars. A great way to introduce the idea of using platforms such as Zoom or Skype for coaching sessions.’

‘I was fortunate to be on a coaching course with Maximum Coaching that covered a broad and challenging curriculum aligned with the ICF Coaching Competencies. I worked to gain my own coaching experience with a variety of clients. A programme of group and 1-2-1 coach mentoring wove these two learning threads together in a manner that made them greater than the sum of their parts. The discussion in these sessions encouraged a deeper consideration of my coaching practice by viewing it from the diverse perspectives of my group and our coach mentor. As a consequence, my preparation, delivery, and review of coaching has become more sophisticated and coach mentoring definitely helped in my preparation for ICF accreditation.’

Above and beyond my expectations. I have learned an enormous amount and feel inducted into a very interesting world.’

‘[The] coach mentoring sessions have helped me to hold a mirror up to myself as a coach and challenge what I see, consistently increasing my awareness and self-knowledge. In particular they have helped me to understand who I am as a coach, how I move beyond the problem to work with the person, and how my natural role in the drama triangle can influence my position as a coach – these reflections have persisted beyond the mentoring sessions to deepen my everyday practice, with noticeable resultsI have grown as a coach and in other aspects of my professional life as a result of these sessions. It’s a lifelong journey and this has been an insightful beginning.’

‘I am very eager to put into practice what I have learned.’

I really appreciate the follow-on mentoring and the support to carry on the journey to [my credential] with the ICF.’

An excellent and extremely well-delivered programme that enabled me to quickly develop my understanding and delivery of value-adding coaching practices. I found the blend of classroom-based, content rich, presentations and practical skills practice an effective way to learn and an approach that allowed me to develop an effective coaching style in a timely and cost effective manner. Highly recommended.’

‘I enjoyed the approach of covering theory in the morning and using the afternoons for practice sessions and feedback.’

‘The programme content was clear and followed a logical sequence. I enjoyed the ‘pace’ and experiential inputs from the tutors’

‘The level of challenge was high through the coaching practice and feedback given, but matched by a high level of support and a safe environment.

‘Elizabeth coach mentored me through my ICF ACC journey. She has been an incredible support. Her feedback and observations have helped me to reflect and develop my coaching practice. She is professional and passionate about doing the right thing. She has thought outside the box to enable me to access further development and has encouraged me to access CPD that has added value to my practice and opened my learning mindset.’

‘Very impressive trainers. Very impressive fellow participants. Very effective training methodology. This was probably the most useful, effective and interesting training course I have done in my entire career – and I’m 56!

‘A joy! I experienced genuine, fulfilling learning about how to help myself and others. The expert team led by Elizabeth that instructed us were all intelligent, understanding and knowledgeable.’

‘It has been a transformational experience, to make me much more self-aware on what my strengths are and how much more I can develop on to take my coaching to the next level. This course is definitely not just about learning a few new techniques but learning to be self-reflective and how to keep developing myself as a coach while helping others develop. It always helped me experience how powerful coaching can be to help people reflect and develop new perspectives / mindset that lead to sustainable change.’

‘In addition to learning new techniques and developing skills, the course helped me re-ignite my passion in coaching and now I am grasping every coaching opportunity I have to both develop myself and to help others.’

Elizabeth is an inspiring woman, I often think that learning experiences are only as good as the facilitator, so I feel very lucky in this respect.’

‘I loved experiencing the different styles and perspectives from both fellow attendees and the faculty. So much collaboration and mutual respect from people who have not worked together before.’
