The Accredited Advanced Diploma in Coaching with Neuroscience is an Advanced Coaching course unlike any other.

This part-time course, conducted over 8 months, takes you deep into the drivers of human behaviours and the hidden impacts our brain has on performance.  As a result of PSG’s early adoption of emotional intelligence and neuroscience in coaching, the PSG ‘whole-person’ coaching model is the most evolved in terms of research, relevance and delivering results.

This leading edge course is uniquely constructed by master coaches and elite performers and is rooted in extensive knowledge and experience. It taps into our coaching expertise and real-world experience bringing the best of coaching with a focus on ‘brain-body based’ science.

Integrating professional education with best practice tools and techniques from a range of disciplines, this Advanced Diploma enables you to confidently step in to the world of Coaching at the highest level with the latest and most up-to date research and knowledge.

Whether you are already coaching and need to upskill to the highest quality or you are seeking the best way to make an impact as an advanced practitioner coach, this course offers you an Advanced Diploma from one of the best Coaching Training Providers in one of the world’s leading third level educational campuses – an unrivaled win-win.

Since 2003 we have been continuing and building on our strength of qualifying top-quality coaches who are now practicing world-wide. This Advanced Diploma is informed with the latest global perspectives, delivered and supported by an exceptional faculty of leading master coaches and trainers and offers forward-focused educational practices to take quality coaching to a new level.

Our mission is to develop quality coach practitioners, with ‘ultra-high self-awareness’, a deep understanding of neuroscience, and wisdom about life in order to bring out the best in themselves and others no matter what their role. As experienced coaches know, you cannot coach with tools and competencies alone. The most successful and impactful coaches enable the ‘whole person’ and have a deep knowledge of how to harmonise and align the full suite of connectors to drivers  leading to new behaviour, new habits and new results.

This Advanced course has the added advantage of bringing a deep understanding of neuroscience and brain-based insights and research. Its learning objectives equip managers, leaders and business owners to support transformation and model the high impact behaviours necessary to deliver consistent performance for individuals, teams and cultures. It fosters confidence in conscious thoughts and actions, competence  and mastery of skills. This enables truly long lasting and transformative thinking and change.

It shares best practice cutting-edge neuro-power tools and skills to coach for high-performance taking a holistic approach and including the view in to the key pillars of Wellness, Health and Mental Strength

One of the key elements that makes this programme so successful and sought after is that it puts the same amount of emphasis on the strength, well-being and performance of the COACH as it does the COACHEE.  We know from experience that the quality of the coaching experience for the coachee is directly related to the ability and strength of the coach to deliver a quality process.

The course provides a transformational educational and experiential journey, both personally and professionally delivering a life-changing intellectual and emotional experience.

What sets this course apart and makes it best in class is the combination of cognitive content supported by neuroscience, the level of quality practice exercises and the dynamic group work that creates meaningful change points in participants’ personal and professional lives.

The 8, two day modules, are made up of 16 face to face highly dynamic, engaging and experiential training days.

The flow of the curriculum has been designed to build and cultivate coaching confidence working through the following themes:

  • Ultra-high-definition SELF awareness, value driven –  authentic – resilient
  • Stepping into the COACH role to enable creative, courageous and innovative thinking/goal setting
  • Leading and partnering through the quality COACHING PROCESS to ensure progression and high performance
