What is the PGCPLC?
The Post-Graduate Certificate in Psychosynthesis Leadership Coaching is a six month, part-time course that gives you the core skills, principles, models, strategies and tools needed to practice successfully as a leadership or executive coach. The programme provides both the thorough professional underpinning you need to be an exceptional leadership coach, as well as support and guidance for the personal development and inner work that will enable you to work at a deeper level with your clients.
This is an evolutionary programme that goes beyond conventional performance and behaviourally oriented approaches. Aimed at internal and external coaches, both experienced and those new to the role.
Psychosynthesis is a powerful coaching psychology that can help us connect with our inner resources, activate the will, strengthen our sense of self and develop our capacity for being in right relationship with others. It gives coaches a context, method and techniques for helping leaders meet the personal and human challenges of complex organisational change. It provides an accessible grammar for transforming organisations through activating principles of wholeness and purpose.
This six-month Certificate course will also be highly practical, experiential and focused on giving new coaches the basic skills they need and more experienced coaches an opportunity to integrate their learning.
The PGCPLC is a qualification in its own right that can also lead to Professional Membership of APECS (the UK’s leading professional body for executive coaches), and will feed directly into the MA in Psychosynthesis Psychology applied to Leadership Coaching, for those wishing to continue their development.
