Testimonial

“This course helps to bridge the gap between the therapy and corporate world. It was enriched by the variety of tutor-experts in their field, and the practicum proved to be a transformational experience for me.” Lisa Kemsley, 2014

“Having the opportunity to navigate deeply into my personal and professional territory, during the Executive Coaching & Organisational Development Diploma at Naos, has transformed my relationship with myself and the environment that I live in. Directors, tutors and peers created a strong experimenting platform to challenge my practice and integrate the layers of my own system. Deep gratitude lives in my heart today as your presence and support allowed a constant and profound healing within all of us.” Fabian Hirose, 2014

“The NAOS approach to teaching organisational development & executive coaching is an in-depth practical, systemic & personal development training that pushed me to delve deep, learn fast & work collaboratively at the same time as honouring my own integrity. Bernd & Jaap’s warm personal presence & facilitative style make this an enriching experience that has left me feeling confident about my ability to practice in this field while continually expanding my learning. I thoroughly recommend this diploma.” Mubeen Hashmat, 2014

“An exciting course with influential course speakers and directors that enrich the year long training, very well recommended.” Sarah Waite, 2014

Older testimonials
“Working on change programmes in the finance / investment banking industry for 13 years I was looking to gain an understanding of organisational, systems and individual behaviour from a psychoanalytic perspective and to improve my coaching skills.”

“What I found in this course was a unique opportunity to learn from faculty as well as fellow students. It covered many important aspects of organisational development and coaching in depth. Its benefits continue to reveal themselves to me even now, 2 years after completion.”

“The history of coaching comes from the fields of sports and psychology, this course provides a very solid grounding in the latter. It also forms a strong base for anyone serious in self development, improvement as a leader/manager or a career as an executive coach.” Jason Millard

“I took the Diploma in Organisational Development and Executive Coaching 2006-2007. I was interested in the offering of experiential learning. Coming from a business and science background this was new to me and I must say it was not easy to adapt. On the course, I learned a huge amount about how to be a consultant far beyond any simple collection of techniques. The course has changed the way I do my work, all by helping me to be myself and being authentic with people more than I ever thought possible in a professional situation. Throw away those “How to…” books, forget the “X Steps to Consulting Success” seminars and try this course instead.” Dr Michael F O’Neill, Managing Director, Eolas Biosciences Ltd

“I came to the Organisational Development and Executive Coaching training primarily from a psychodynamic therapy and organisational trauma background. I am fascinated, enthralled, always affected by organisations and at times intimidated by them. I wanted to acquire a sharper lens to my organisational work; this was my primary objective for doing the training.”

“As a therapist I am well versed in experiential learning and so was comfortable with the delegates forming an organisation and working with the ‘here and now’. I was out of my comfort zone when working with the Gestalt approach and particularly the importance of the embodied experience as a tool for learning. As a result of the training I am much more attuned to the body and able to integrate this tool in working with individual and organisational clients.”

“Finally I gained a great network of colleagues and a few more priceless friends as a result of the training which have blossomed in to generative, enduring, relationships.” William Devine

“I’ve already started Executive Coaching. I think differently about organisations but I want to consolidate my learning and integrate it into my practice gradually. Having conducted what I consider was a successful site visit and organisational consultancy I have gained greater confidence of my organisational work.”

“This kind of experiential learning was new for me and it will take time to see how it beds in an how I can implement it in my working life. I see the value and have tried to use myself as a presence more in my dealings with clients even in my technical consulting. It is a big step away from how I have worked in the past and I hope I have the courage and tenacity to stick at it. It is very interesting to see how different my approach now is compared to colleagues who still work in the ‘consultant as expert’ model.”

“The learning experience has been fantastic. The change and personal development starts from day one. The approach of the tutors, the topics, and the support made possible for me to take the challenge and develop a better approach with my own team as well as start building my own practice as executive coach and OD consultant. Many thanks!”

“I enjoyed the variety of teaching on the course. I had wanted to find out more about Gestalt and Transactional Analysis and I enjoyed following up the information on the course with reading and putting the information learned into practice.”

“All the sessions taught by Bernd were very well constructed and informative. There was a good mix of teaching and opportunities to put the learning and theory into practice. Bernd’s sessions were extremely full and he worked us hard, but I learned a huge amount from him during this year. The handouts were excellent and the suggested follow up reading was very helpful.”

“Bernd Leygraf: Excellent and high level.”

“Mark Buckle: Good facilitator and good organisational knowledge.”

“Chris Williams: Excellent. Highly skilled facilitator and practitioner.”

“Jaap Westerbos: Excellent material.”

“Anne Litwin: I liked Anne’s work and found most of the material very relevant and appropriate for my needs as I was coming from a limited coach/consultant background.”

“Ilona Eros: Very good work, worked very well with the group…”

“Mark Buckle: Good communication skills and helped me to link what the role as Manager as Coach could look like in the work place.”

“Chris Williams: Excellent work throughout the weekend, my favourite part of the course…”

“Jaap Westerbos: I liked what Jaap brought, I thought it was alive and interesting, definitely out of the box, and had relevant to coaching and consulting.”

“Bernd Leygraf: Excellent, very engaging and challenging to work with him.”

“Ilona Eros: Very good, really enjoyed her style and content.”

“Mark Buckle: Enjoyed the session, lots of energy.”

“Chris Williams. Really enjoyed it. Very thorough and professional. Excellent handouts and preparation .”

“Jaap Westerbos. Very good quality material.”

“I think having a range of different guest lecturers and workshop facilitation styles was useful as for me. It gave me an insight into how different people think about and work in and with organisations (…) which was what I was hoping to get from the course. I also liked the fact that the learning had a practical element to it, especially the coaching diad’s and triads.”

“Bernd is an engaging group facilitator.”

” Ilona Eros: I thought this was a fabulous weekend and one of the best. I really felt that Ilona was able to tailor a weekend to each individual way in a way that simultaneously bonded us. I thought that she was a thoughtful and curious facilitator and really helped me to learn more about my interpersonal style, the paradoxes within it and how these can help or hinder my interactions with people both in the workplace and within my clinical practice.”

“Bernd Leygraf: Brilliant facilitator of the group. (He was) inclusive and listened to everyone’s perspective. Informative and knowledgeable. Didn’t dominate and feel the need to be the expert. Lovely style.”
