What participants say about our Executive Coaching Certification Program

Patricia Vázquez-Dodero, Barcelona
Executive Coaching Certification Program
This has been a transformational process: I have had many learnings about myself, about how to accompany people to know what they want, and to focus on it.

I really liked the focus on the future, the help for reflection and personal decision taking, the way in which coaching puts each one in front of what they want and what stops them from focusing themselves towards it. .

Coaching transforms... better: we experience, and we are the ones who lead that transformation through coaching. I lead my own transformation and it has impact in the people around me».

Erika Lo Schiavo, Italy
Executive Coaching Certification Program
I take away lots of tips and perspectives about coaching and about how to approach people's challenges and exigences.

I feel I brought myself out there during the program, and that I grew up in terms of acquiring new points of view. Specifically, I found hard and extremely useful for me learning to practice feedback, both giving and receiving it. .

I feel satisfied about what I learnt and of how I faced it; in general, the environment was really supportive and encouraging so I found myself quite at ease».

Kate Jetmore, USA
Executive Coaching Certification Program
My training with EEC was a watershed moment in my life. This past year has been transformational, and I am stepping back into my life as a new version of myself.

When I decided to take this course, I never dreamed that I would evolve so deeply as a person. I feel fuller, more realized, and ready for what's to come».

Gabriela Erice, Belgium
Executive Coaching Certification Program
"The experiential and practical part is spectacular. Throughout the training, there is constant practice that allows you to consolidate and learn to apply everything you experience in the classes. This set you off on a process of personal growth and development that I find fundamental to then be able to accompany others."
Amalia Santos, Barcelona
Executive Coaching Certification Program
"The moment I walked into EEC I felt that I belonged there. I enjoyed the training methods, the content, the group dynamics and the practical exercises. I learned that the quality of a relationships depends on the conversations and that I am the too. Today, I am a freelance leadership and executive coach and I facilitate and coach and coaching is not only my profession, it’s part of who I am, it's my passion."
Jeremy Attelly, Manchester
Executive Coaching Certification Program
"I just realize how powerful this course has been. It was important then and it's even bigger now. I now realize the real transformation this course has brought to me: in how I express myself, how I think, and how I'm able to connect with people. It's pretty amazing to see how you are a different person, in a good sense, because it's something connected to your gut, your feelings, and your emotions. I know exactly who I am, what I want to do, and I enjoy it."
