Next Coach Certification Course Starts January 28, 2015


Cowan Coach Certification



Cowan International announces the start of our next Cowan Coach Certification group on January 28th. Cowan Coach Certification is designed for mining professionals who believe in the power of coaching as a way to transform human potential and develop talent as part of a sustainable succession plan.  The program was developed in conjunction with the International Coaching Federation (ICF), the globally recognized accreditation body for Coaching.

A Coach Approach To Leadership




The 17 week course is divided into two parts, Coach Skills and Advanced Training to prepare you to apply for the Advanced Coach Certification (ACC) status with the ICF.

Cowan Coach Certification is a revolutionary program in the coaching world. Cowan is unique in offering experiential, situational and practical learning focused on cross cultural integration and adaptation.  With 60 years specialized in talent management in Africa, we understand the impact culture has in areas such as communication, perception, assumptions about time, hierarchy, urgency and priorities.  Culture has a direct impact on performance in the workplace and the potential to develop people. We designed the coach program to give leaders in a global environment an edge– an acute awareness of the influence culture has on talent development.

The difference between a good manager and a remarkable manager is his/her ability to coach. Cowan has partnered  with the ICF to design a Coach Certification program that will transform leadership across cultures.
