Building your Coaching Practice
We take pride in the fact that in our view we provide more opportunity than any other company for our students to build their Coaching Practice. We do not take up a huge chunk of the main course on this subject as for those intending to apply their skills in current employment, it is inappropriate. However, from practical written guidance given upon completion of the residential experience and advice at the end of a phone to additional workshops and optional membership of our Business for Coaches, if you want to build a successful coaching career, Noble Manhattan can support you all the way.
