BVSSH coaching is designed to support leaders at every level who are striving to improve ways of working in their organisation

Coaching provides the opportunity for ‘skiing’ side by side, helping you to apply specific patterns explored during training inside your own organisation

Coaching  can be offered as a follow up to BVSSH Fundamentals Training or as a tailored programme (e.g. dojo style) for your organisation
