To develop at an advanced level the applied competence of the student in providing professional leadership coaching interventions. This will be done by developing the competences of contracting, assessing needs, constructing development plans, delivering individual and team coaching sessions and the evaluation of the impact of different coaching interventions through a number of modules. Through a mini-dissertation, the student will show evidence of scientific research and the ability to reflect on the holistic context of leadership coaching. The programme will provide a development experience to psychologists, psychometrists, human resource managers, and managers as well as other postgraduate students in becoming competent and professional leadership coaches in South Africa.
