Very briefly, Metasysteme Coaching ‘s specificity rests on a fundamentally systemic and synchronic approach to the coaching developmental dialogue and to the coaching relationship. This professional posture embraces obvious evidence that a-causal coherencies and resonances bridge our coach-and-client inner worlds and material realities.

To a systemic coach, these worlds are in fact mere expressions of one same underlying universal unity. This underlying unity is manifest in our lives, in our souls and in our material environments through common patterns and shared meaning. Within a specific manner of dialogue and with a deep presence to synchronic resonances, In their everyday personal lives, Metasysteme Coaching professionals continuously learn to embrace this systemic perspective.

to consult some client testimonials on the ''Systemic Coaching Fundamentals''

The “coaching fundamentals” systemic coach training program detailed below provides a comprehensive learning process both for confirmed coaches and for beginners in the coaching field.  This coach-training cycle is ACSTH certified by the International Coach Federation.

Beyond the coach population, the proposed practical systemic coaching skill set can very usefully concern all those who wish to learn how to use performing communication tools for in other related fields.  Among other professionals, this can concern managers, recruiters, sales representatives, consultants, HR professionals, trainers, journalists, etc.

The powerful dimension of this relatively short coach training cycle rests on its original teaching frame of reference in total coherence with the spirit of systemic coaching.  The learning process is immediately focused on teaching advanced coaching skills, addressing each participant as a potential master systemic coach rather than as a beginner.   The taught techniques are distilled to their finest dimension, and exempt of superfluous theory. The resulting accelerated learning process is focused on very practically acquiring the art (know-how) of essential masterful coaching.

Consequently, the total proposed training program represents a relatively complete practical educational program on implementing the fundamentals of masterful coaching. The comprehensive program also includes participation in :

  • A peer group which offers intensive and complementary coach training opportunities.
  • A full day of supervision and mentoring at the end of the cycle to prepare for future development as a coach

Consequently, if one can sign up and attend any workshop selectively, priority will be given to participants who will commit to the whole program.

HOW : Each two-day session is conceived as a focused and practical behavioral training environment focused on acquiring practical coaching skills (know-how). The participants will find a setting where they will be asked to actively practice real-life learning situations focused on acquiring behavioral coaching skills and communication techniques.  By following this program, participants learn to become systemic coaches.

WHERE : Bucharest (in English), and Madrid (English),  Paris (in French). The precise address for each program in the above locations are communicated to participants following their enrollment.

Note that the Romania location is geographically close to Serbia, Croatia, Slovenia, Hungary, Slovakia and a host of other Balkan or East European countries.  Participants in the Bucharest Coaching School may also come from Moldavia, Ukraine, Bulgaria and Turkey, and has attracted students from as far as Finland and Italy.  The Madrid "Fundamentals" program is the only one offered in Western Europe in English.
