    I chose the CFI Programme primarily because of the quality of instruction, as well as the rigour that the programme has. During the process of the course, each participant is also assigned a supervisor–guide, which I think is very helpful. I also like CFI’s program on continuing professional development, which helps practitioners like me stay updated on what’s going on in the eld of coaching as well as learn from a community of peer coaches.

      After going through the certification program, I have developed greater faith in the process of coaching. ‑is is because of CFIs unique methodology. ‑e process is crafted to allow the coach trainees to experience coach[1]ing as a coachee and witness self-transformation. continuous feedback through the learning process and internship guided by the scholarly faculty is the distinguisher and gives the coach trainee a holistic learning experience.

                The PGPEC program has been life changing. It has enriched my self-awareness & has made my personal & professional life more fullling. It has also equipped me with the skills & confidence to become a CEO Coach. ¬e high point of the programme was the opportunity to coach two professionals - one an existing CEO & the other an aspiring CEO. Both coachees gained immensely from the engagement & I felt humbled that I was able to make a positive impact in their lives. I am now an evangelist for Executive Coaching as a 'Must Have' HR intervention for aspiring CEOs.

                    “CFI defines Coaching as a very personal, humanistic, result-oriented, potential enhancing developmental relationship, structured between an executive seeking to further their growth and a formally trained, skilled and empathetic coach.
