If so then please consider joining the Green Templeton Coaching Programme.

What is coaching?

Coaching is a process of guided conversations to help a coachee [client or student] be better able to do what they want to do e.g. improve your skills and capabilities, make the best of yourself and your opportunities in relation to your current circumstances, explore questions, issues or challenges, consider new action plans or approaches to concerns. The coach helps you achieve these aims by encouraging reflection, enabling insights and exploring possibilities with you. This powerful process is highly sought after by top executives.

The programme has been underway in the college for the past 10 years with great success.

All students at GTC are eligible to join the programme during their time in Oxford. MBA students are encouraged to join the Saïd Business School MBA Leadership Coaching Programme for which there is an introductory session at 09:00 on 15 October. The GTC programme begins in October/November each year and runs through until July the following year, with scheduling determined individually between student and coach.
