Having used Teleos as an external consulting resource to help build the capability of our internal organizational/leadership consultants, I was eager to further develop my own skills by participating in their coaching program. The program has exceeded my expectations by providing me with theory, practice, and feedback to further enhance my coaching skills.”

For years, I have desired to become a certified coach. As a former Human Resource Director and Six Sigma Black Belt with over twenty years of experience, who is transitioning to a career as a Supply Chain Business Leader, now seemed to be the perfect time to act on my goal. I wanted a program that would lead toward certification and provide a systematic approach to learning. I was seeking a program based in multiple theories and conducted by knowledgeable professionals who hold a world view. My research and inquiry lead me to Teleos where I have had one of the most outstanding learning experiences that I have ever engaged.
The environment was challenging and fun, and the facilitators and participants were professional, supportive, and compassionate. A detailed learning agenda was developed, was followed, and the necessary support provided to enable me to achieve certification. Everything, down to the smallest of details were attended to and executed. I not only believe I am a better coach and leader, but a better person due to my experiences with Teleos, their Staff, and this program

I have just recently retired as an HR Partner with PwC. After considering various paths to take on my next life journey I selected Teleos to be my 'developmental partner'. As a leader in my Firm I have been exposed to the very best external consultants so my expectation was extremely high. I was thrilled with the outcome as I received the framework and structure I was searching for to go with my 34 years of experience! The content was perfect, the instruction was superb and the engagement of the group was outstanding. I not only received the methodology and frameworks I was searching for but it also served to give me a clear focus on planning my next journey. I only wish I had gone to this coaching session much sooner as it would have shaped me into a better leader, husband and father! It was tremendously valuable and I am so thankful that Teleos was the organization I selected!

I’ve attended many development programs over the years. The Teleos Coach Development Program is the best experience I’ve had from both a personal and professional standpoint. Because of the excellent foundational tools and outstanding facilitation throughout the program, I have increased my personal effectiveness as an HR Business Partner and coach. I feel more confident in addressing leadership and behavioral issues because I now have a significant understanding of several coaching theories and their application. For me, a key learning construct of the program included experiencing the group as an organizational system at multiple levels. This has been tremendously helpful to assist leaders in focusing their growth and seeing connections across the enterprise. I would highly recommend this program to anyone in an HR leadership role.

I am a partner in boutique consulting firm that specializes in organization effectiveness. Our major client engagements are typically 5-10 years. I have extensive training in business performance, organization development etc. I am certified in all the major 360 instruments, have interpersonal development programs. They are all warm up opportunities in comparison to the insight, learning and skill development offered through Teleos Leadership Institute’s executive coaching program. Coaching is increasingly a critical component in building client capacity & leadership competence in my client base. If you want to personally experience world class coaching & understand how you can develop the same, the Teleos Coach Development Program is essential. It reminded me every minute what "good form" really looks/feels like and was incredibly energizing.

What stands out for me about this programme is the quality of facilitation and coaching, and as a result an environment that was absolutely optimal for positive learning and practice. I have been on many courses and development programmes but none have come close to this. If you're looking for world-class coaching training based on holistic theory and practice, a group that you will laugh and journey with beyond the programme, and faculty who are second to none you need look no further. The fact that the programme links into ICF accreditation, is led by some of the leading practitioners in emotional intelligence, and has an international flavour (including working in stunning locations such as the Italian lakes), means you will struggle to find something more compelling.

This program provided one of the most powerful professional and personal development opportunities I have ever experienced. The quality, experience, and knowledge of the faculty and the participants was incredible. This program is the perfect intersection of theory, practice, and cutting edge design. The faculty and staff demonstrate internality in their design and focused attention in balancing content and process while supporting our individual and collective needs. For me a key measure of exceptional professional development is the return on investment. With TCDP, I was able to realize a return in two months. The increased value I am delivering to my clients has shown up immediately and the network of incredible colleagues provides a rich platform of possibilities.
