Become a Coach

The business of being human

Coaching@GIBS offers a complete professional and personal coach training journey.

You are introduced to the concept of professional coaching and given the opportunity to practice these coaching competencies with real-time expert feedback in the GIBS Leader as Coach course. Should you wish to pursue your professional coach training, GIBS offers you the complete package with the Professional Business Coaching course and the Advanced Professional Business Coaching course. Both coaching courses are accredited with the International Coach Federation, giving you the opportunity to apply for your internationally-recognised ICF-credential and perfect your coaching competencies.

Business Coaching Journey

The significance of effective coaching skills go far beyond your potential career as a professional business coach and mentor. The World Economic Forum reports that the Fourth Industrial Revolution is about empowering people, not the rise of machines. They predict that the need for “human skills” will grow across all job sectors in the future. Therefore, Coaching@GIBS has designed three additional courses for your leadership development: Leader as Mentor, Facilitation for High Performing Teams and Navigating and Leading Change.

​​GIBS professional coaching journey is the only TRIPLE Accredited coach training programme with:

Thuli Segalo- GIBS coach​
"The Advanced professional business coaching programme ignited me with confidence to coach C-suite clients. It catapulted me into a seasoned coach, which resulted in my coaching business growth. The programme remains a pivotal anchor in my business acumen. I confidently call myself a professional business coach because of the solid foundation afforded by the programme. The programme opened the direction for me to obtain my PCC credential with the ICF, a credential which is so respected by clients and organisations globally (and allowing me to offer) coaching's greatest impact in a thinking and reflection space for clients to do their best strategic thinking"

Dr Jerry Gule ​
"When I enrolled on the programme I was already an experienced executive and I had many colleagues who asked me to guide them in different areas of their professional or business and personal lives. The programme ot only gave me a rounded understanding of coaching theories and frameworks, it gave me structure and practical tool sets to do what I had done for years better, deeper, insightfully and supported by a solid professional coaching ethics code. It's a worthy investment for yourself and for lives that you will touch and transform subsequently".

“I have been doing Executive Coaching at GIBS for almost 2 years. Laura Malan, has been, without a doubt, the best executive coach I could’ve asked for. Not only did she challenge my thinking, inspire me to action, both professionally and personally, she also stretched me and took me to places I was afraid to venture to. She has added tremendous value to my Executive Development journey. I would strongly recommend that any professional wanting to climb to greater heights, in business and corporate, consider GIBS Executive Coaching Programme.”
- Bongani Mthombeni-Moller, Strategic Business Development Executive and Regional Manager, SMEC Gauteng South.
“My #GIBS MBA journey has allowed me to meet people like Rre Jabu Maphalala. I wish I could bottle him for each and everyone of you. Amazing executive coach. He got me to understand the Japanese philosophy of wabi sabi. It’s ugly, it’s messy and it’s okay, we push through. Botshelo ke kgwetlho, re kgaratlhela pele”
- Masego M
“Andrea is a powerful and insightful coach and the sessions were most valuable. Thanks for the support on this life journey. I am left with deep gratitude.”
