"You coach with your personality. Therefore, itโ€™s invaluable to understand your personality-driven strengths and weaknesses as a coach to work with others who are different, allowing you to more effectively interact with them."

Getting a wide and holistic perspective on coaching

In 2010, I wanted to challenge myself with a longer-term qualification programme that would allow me to make a lasting change in my leadership and enable me to work as an internal coach.

Henley fulfilled my expectations of getting an excellent coaching education in numerous ways. The days spent at Henley with internationally renowned trainers and a great group of participants with different backgrounds were very valuable, as well as the practical experience of coaching real clients. In between, we had assignments and reading to complete. Mixed with self-evaluation personality tests, the entire programme was an outstanding holistic package of coaching content โ€“ and one at a university level of education.

I feel the programme was transformational for me as a leader. One of the highlights for me was deepening my self-awareness and learning how my personality relates to my role as a coach. You coach with your personality. Therefore, it is invaluable to understand your personality-driven strengths and weaknesses as a coach to be able to work with others who are different, allowing you to more effectively interact with them.

I am happy to hear that Henley is now making this programme available in Finland!
