Queensland University of Technology via FutureLearn

This course may be unavailable.


Enhance your leadership impact with eFIRE, a new methodology for coaching.

In today’s complex and uncertain world, executive coaching training has never been more vital. How can you use coaching and mentoring to untangle messy problems and find solutions that will help you – and your staff – to survive as well as thrive? What strategies can help you to enhance the potentials and overcome the pitfalls of the leader-as-coach?

This online executive coaching course will show you how to apply eFIRE, a unique coaching model, to increase your impact as a leader, reflect on your experiences and receive peer feedback. You’ll explore a variety of coaching cultures through vignettes and the lens of leaders who are experiencing challenges with staff.

This course is aimed at executives, consultants and human resource professionals, with a global mindset, who seek to sharpen their leadership practice through coaching and mentoring, and possibly become coaching champions in their organisations.

As an executive coaching course, you would ideally have significant professional knowledge of business (in the corporate, government or not-for-profit sectors), as well as full-time, post-degree, professional, supervisory or managerial experience.

You do not need prior coaching or mentoring experience to take part.
