    A highly structured &
    hands-on curriculum

    Our programme has a clear structure (check out our brochure!) and progresses in a logical manner that makes it easy to follow.

    We also place a huge emphasis on putting theory into practice (Our trainings are conducted entirely face-to-face*).

    Much of our curriculum involves drills and peer coaching - so our students emerge as confident, competent coaches upon graduation.

    *In light of the heightened phase 2 measures, we've shifted our lessons to online for the time being to keep both you and our trainers safe!

    Embark on a journey of discovery and growth

    In coaching, there's a saying that coaches are unable to take clients any deeper than they've gone themselves.

    On top of the rigorous modules that'll have you look within yourself deeply, each student will receive 10 hours of mentor coaching. 

    Many share that upon graduation, they find themselves with a deeper level of self-awareness, able to notice their thoughts, know when they're experiencing limiting beliefs as well as what are the fears which are holding them back.

    Belong to a community of like-minded coaches

    There's this richness of experience when aspiring coaches of different backgrounds, careers and cultures come together and spur on towards a common goal.

    Each cohort, we consistently notice that a deep sense of connection is forged amongst our students as they learn and practice together.

    Many form lasting relationships and even go on to form business partnerships too!

    Before her life as a coach, Mei Yee was an overachiever who won her company’s President Award (Top Sales Award) for her superior performance. These days, she prefers making a difference in the lives of her high achieving clients, working with them to fulfill their potentials.

    What Our Graduates Say

    "Without the right attitudes, experience is blind. The program teaches us to work on our attitudes.

    With the right attitudes, we are able to use our newly acquired knowledge and skills to create better life experiences for ourselves and others."


    Dr Michael Chang, Head of Global Learning of a Tertiary Education Organization

    "I chose ECI as a training organisation as it offered the most structured training to become an effective coach: I believe in trying to achieve the most in the minimum amount of time and ECI was the most professional organization offering this.

    I really enjoyed the professionalism offered by ECI’s trainers and staff: the delivery was clear and engaging, the staff support was great and the content of the sessions was really interesting.

    I learnt much more than I anticipated during this training: at first, I came with the idea I would be able to better coach and understand others but along the way, I also gained a much clearer vision of myself and what also drives me. Being able to realise the synthesis of both is what, in my opinion, makes the training I received at ECI great.

    I also found the interaction with other teammates really good as they will ask you questions that make you consider things in a new light. However, the best part was basically putting into practice everything you have learnt: you really understand then how everything fits together and how coaching can really help you open new doors and opportunities."


    Sebastien Lacroix, Insead MBA Graduate

    "Despite having attended other coaching classes, I feel that the quality and experience of the 2 coach trainers has created a very different experience.

    The “immediate” coaching practices and diversity of real issues have brought this class truly to a professional experience."


    Isabelle Claus Teixeira, Head of Talent Management, Leadership & Organization Development of a Global Pharmaceutical Brand

    Frequently Asked Questions

    How are the courses conducted?

    We have one of the best online learning courses in Singapore.

    For the most recent batch of participants, we were rated an average 8.9 out of 10.

    Is coaching different from mentoring?

    There are some similarities between coaching and mentoring.

    However, coaching focuses on empowering clients and holding them accountable for their own professional and personal development, whereas mentoring largely involves the mentor sharing his or her life experiences.

    Coaching is a professionally certifiable skill-set, where coaches spend hours on training and practice before receiving accreditation.

    Contrary to popular belief, coaches do not tell their clients what to do.

    Coaching is instead a partnership, where coaches ask their clients powerful, open-ended questions which can unlock the answers from deep within clients themselves.

    Coaching also covers a wider spectrum in developing all the different domains in life, including personal relationships as well as finding purpose and direction, which may not be something that all mentors are comfortable speaking about with another industry professional.

    In fact, accredited life coaches are trained to be able to handle any issue (professional or otherwise) that a client may wish to discuss.

    Thus, coaching is a more formal relationship where coaches collaborate with clients in discovering more about themselves, equipping them with new competencies to help them take action and move forward to their goals for life.

    Is coaching different from therapy?

    Coaching focuses on advancing a client’s potential, while therapy focuses on curing and healing a client’s unresolved emotional problems.

    Coaches use a client’s history mainly as a map to see how a client’s path has evolved to his or her present state. Coaching is more concerned with the gap between the present and envisioned future.

    Coaches work hand-in-hand with their clients to reach specific life goals and enhance their growth and development in various domains of life – career, relationships, leadership, finding purpose, finances, health, amongst others.

    For coaching, contact with clients between sessions for accountability is expected, while any contact outside of therapy sessions are meant for crises and difficulties only.

    Trained coaches are able to discern when a client requires therapy rather than coaching (e.g. when a client has addictions, are recovering from trauma or face difficulty in day-to-day functioning).

    Will completing this course allow me to set up a coaching business?

    Absolutely.

    With the ACTP certificate you’ll be accredited with after completing the 4 modules, you’ll be able to formally coach clients.

    And some of our course graduates have done just that, setting up their own businesses and are currently very successful practicing coaches. 

    Will this course be relevant to my career?

    The universal coaching skills that we teach can be used in conjunction with any existing specialisations you have.

    For example, career consultants can become career coaches; someone with expertise in health and fitness can be a wellness coach.

    Many of our trainees come from developmental professions such as consulting.

    They’ve found coaching to be an extremely valuable addition to their repertoire of existing skills, allowing them to better help the people around them.

    Is the certification I will receive internationally recognised?

    Yes. Our program is accredited by the International Coach Federation (ICF), the world’s leading coaching body.

    This means your certification will be recognised worldwide, should you wish to coach anywhere in the world.
