Spearheading the awareness, acceptance and growth of executive coaching in business

As a leading coach training institution and a respected home of coaching theory, the Centre for Coaching at the UCT GSB is dedicated to developing world-class one-on-one executive coaches as well as empowering leaders who want to build coaching skills. 

In addition to our specialist focus on coaching we support the local coaching industry to set professional standards and benchmark coaching excellence. We believe that coaching should be recognised as a powerful business and leadership tool and we aim to spearhead the awareness, acceptance and growth of executive coaching.


Creating lasting and meaningful personal development for clients

A key focus has been on the development of the Integral Coaching Philosophy and its application to leadership. Today, we can say with confidence that our integral leadership interventions, together with coaching, have become a recognised and successful business process for international corporations and organisations.

The Centre for Coaching goes about this in a number of different ways:

  • We offer top-calibre one-on-one executive coaches to those individuals and organisations seeking coaching
  • We consult to organisations wishing to invest in leadership development
  • We consult to organisations wishing to experience a transformational culture shift
  • We conduct research into the work we do both in corporate rollouts and in our teaching.
