Standout from other coaches with an ILM Qualification

We are pleased to announce our dates for our 2018 Coaching & Mentoring Programme.

Full Details Here – Dates, Venue & Prices!

This course always receives excellent feedback and we have helped many people achieve a recognised coaching and mentoring qualification from ILM.  Increasingly, coaches and mentors are being asked to provide evidence of their professional competence and ILM is a perfect option for obtaining a qualification in reasonable timescales.

  • 3 x  monthly 2-day blocks of classroom training (Fri/Sat)
  • Monthly drop-in tutorial sessions to focus on ILM assignment work and meet other delegates
  • Ad hoc support from our ILM Centre
  • The Coaching Programme Manual
  • ILM Registration, assessment and feedback

What previous delegates said:

If you are motivated by leadership and people and how to support and move behaviour then this course and this team are just right for you.   You will have some cathartic moments of self reflection and insight, but you will also experience great points of energy and release. You will understand in a different way and be able to offer help in a different way, I have seen a key benefit of being able to help real people achieve better for less and so much more if they apply energy and decisions in the right way.

 I approached No Guru as an ILM Approved Centre to provide Level 7 places to members of our senior leadership team, to enable us to push forward our agenda to develop coaching and mentoring skills to support leadership development and particularly our talent management programme.  I believe the quality of the delivery of the sessions and the bespoke support provided to be the best I have seen in a training course. I received feedback from one of our most Senior leaders saying that “this was one of the best courses he has been on”. This is reflective of the way the programme has been received

Speaking Truth to Power

For those afraid of speaking …

(But) TED is a tough, pressured, hugely stressful gig, even for experienced public speakers, and I’m not that. Standing in the wings waiting to go on, I told the stage manager that my heart was racing uncontrollably and in an act of great kindness, she grasped both my hands and made me take breath after breath. And what you don’t see in the video – deftly edited out – is the awful, heart-stopping moment when I forgot a line, followed by another act of collective kindness, a spontaneous empathic cheer as I composed myself and found my cue. “That’s when the audience came onside,” an attendee told me. “You were human. That’s when you won them over.”  Guardian April 2019

 

This from Carole Cadwalladr, a journalist at the Guardian who has in this last year investigated the role of tech corporations and their platforms in influencing the workings of our democracy.  What makes her TED talk so compelling is because here she is facing those very same technology giants on their turf.  And speaking truth to power.

The Immortal Memory: Robert Burns

Address to The Liverpool Athenaeum  2nd February 2018

I was delighted to be asked by club President Sir David Maddison to deliver The Immortal Memory at The Athenaeum Burns evening which I attended with my wife Fiona. This is a huge honour for any Scot and I hope I did it justice.  Burns provides such a rich tapestry I found it a real challenge to be succint and speak in a way that would connect with the audience – I chose to set Burns against the universal themes we recognise today and in the challenges we face in uncertain times.  I hope you enjoy it.   JD
