Masters in Applied Psychology in Asia 2017. Developing World Class Coaches With its unique but powerful blend of psychological principles and coaching skills, this program will help develop coaches with the ability to understand people and help them reach their full potential in a powerful and structured way. What Does A Professional Coach do? "Coaches partner with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential" – ICF. In essence Coaching is about helping people to attain higher level of performance so that they can succeed in any area, be it in their life success, in their relationship with people, in getting the most of their careers or in becoming a better performer, etc. Professional Coaching: A Driver for Extraordinary Corporate Growth Professional coaches were used to be hired only by among the largest and most elite companies in the world but now this trend has spread to many of the MNCs (multinationals) and GLCs (government link corporations) in Malaysia and the Asia region. This is because there is growing evidence of high ROIs (return on investments) on hiring professional coaches to raise the bar of performance many times more. For example, IBM reported in 2010 a ROI of 563% on their coaching program for sales and marketing executives – ICF. When people in organizations demonstrate extraordinary performance, it is often due to the presence of coaches in their lives. Coaches are the closest and most capable allies anyone can have to help them see their hidden potentials, challenge their self beliefs, stretch and walk with them on the path of excellence. Coaches are not an option but a critical success factor for anyone who wants to be the best they can ever be. This explains why for centuries till this very day, coaches are depended on to help sports people achieve breakthrough achievements. Now this same method is used in almost all aspects of life. Join one of the fastest growing professions in the world today While the majority of clients in the world who employ professional coaches are corporate leaders, there are more and more young working professionals, students, performing artists, professional athletes, people working in government and non-profit organizations employing professional coaches too. A survey conducted by the ICF on over 15,000 respondents in Asia, America, Europe, and Australasia indicated that over 50% of the general population are aware of professional coaching and its benefits. More importantly, recognition of the importance of coaching was the highest among young adults which points to an upward trend in demand for professional coaches. This program is designed to suit the needs of working adults. All lectures and tutorials are scheduled on weeknights (Tuesday and Thursday nights from 7:00pm to 10:00pm) and on Saturdays. [-]
