Decision Making

Choosing a coaching course

Deciding on a course for your training can be hard. Often coaching classes can be academic or so generalised it is difficult to apply the techniques inside modern fast-paced environments. At AWA we provide specific courses for real business needs. This page helps you to decide what course suits your need.

Organisational change relies on people’s interactions and behaviours more than what process or tools they use. Coaching helps individuals, teams, and whole systems to discover the right way of working to meet the business needs they face.

All of the AWA courses are interactive and experiential and are designed to solve real business problems and be used practically and professionally inside large organisations.
