High performance coaching requires a deep sense of knowledge and skill in a wide variety of areas. The IMI Diploma in Executive Coaching has significantly increased my knowledge and provided me with an ability to apply enhanced skills in pressurised competitive circumstances. It provides participants with competence and confidence not alone to achieve previously unthought of goals in their own lives, but to empower others to reach out and achieve dreams that they never thought possible. In essence this programme provides a platform for success in both sporting and corporate worlds.
