Academy of Executive Coaching Ireland welcomes new graduatesThe Academy of Executive Coaching Ireland (AoEC), a leading international executive coaching provider, honoured more than 50 professionally-qualified executive coaches in Northern Ireland, after the practitioners completed the accredited AoEC Diploma.

The organisation is hosting a Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Day and Graduation Ceremony at Malone Lodge Hotel in Belfast city centre, facilitated by two leaders in the field of coaching.

AoEC graduates participate in a four-month long course, accredited by Middlesex University, the International Coach Federation, the European Mentoring and Coaching Council and the Association for Coaching. Students enrolled from all walks of industry in Northern Ireland, including financial services, technology, retail, education and healthcare. They typically hold roles such as Head of Learning & Development and Training Manager (in HR), Sales Managers and Directors, Team Leaders or may be independent Organisation Development Consultants.

The qualification provides individuals with the confidence and skills to coach the highest level of business executives, directors and leaders, helping them to develop their own unique coaching style.

The day was hosted by Anthony Eldridge-Rogers, founder of the Foundation for Recovery and Wellness Coaching International and the Foundation for Recover Coaching UK and Gladeana McMahon, an award-winning transformational personal development coach, author and registered therapist. The theme of the CPD day focuses on how to combine health and wellness with a purposeful, meaning-centred executive coaching model, to help organisations improve work at individual, organisation and societal levels.

Jane Askin, Learning and Development Manager at Kainos and graduate of the AoEC Ireland Diploma said: “My experience of the AoEC Diploma exceeded my expectations. The qualification has equipped me with a deeper understanding and effective new set of coaching tools and techniques. I’ve grown in confidence which means I’m able to help nurture and develop the strong coaching culture within Kainos. I now run internal training courses and sessions to help my colleagues to understand coaching – and to realise how effective it can be in overcoming both individual and organisational obstacles.”

Wendy Robinson, Head of AoEC Ireland said: “Organisations in Northern Ireland of all shapes and sizes are facing today’s challenging economic landscape head-on. This has led to a demand for executive coaching, as organisations strive to be the best they can be. Our coaches graduate, fully equipped to work authentically and courageously with leaders from all sectors, to enable them to navigate change, engage their people and lead successfully, whatever the challenges.”

Today’s event was preceded by a two-day conference held for every international branch of the AoEC, including International Partners from the UK, USA, Estonia, Croatia, Kenya, Turkey and Romania. The teams will share best practice ideas and listen to talks in the field of international business coaching.

The AoEC’s Practitioner Diploma in Executive Coaching is now taking applications for the next intake, which begins on 4 October. For more details about the course programme, entry requirements and how to apply, click here.
