Coaching - Basic Training Course

Next start date: 30 January 2020

Apart from highly professional and methodical competence, the focus of our training courses at EBS Universität für Wirtschaft und Recht is on personal development. Coaching training is an integral part of this framework. The coaching training concept is built on the systemic-constructivist approach. The aim of the training course is to impart the basic knowledge of systemic-constructivist coaching together with the most important intervention techniques. Coaching interviews with the students of the university are incorporated into each module. This enables them to test and expand on what they have learned. This learning process is supplemented by supervision and intervision.

Target group

Today’s fast-changing society and economy pose constantly new challenges for corporate management. Support through coaching is an effective way of meeting these challenges.

We understand coaching as an instrument for personal development, with which employees’ problem-solving and learning skills can be improved, their ability to change increased, and the conflict between personal needs, those linked to the new role and its tasks, and the overarching goals of the company can be balanced.

  • taking part in the basic training course and, in particular, the diploma course, will substantially promote your own personal development.

  • considerable learning experience will be gained by directly employing and implementing the coaching expertise the students have gained both during coaching sessions and subsequent supervision.

  • the participants will be admitted to the EBS alumni network which supports the intercommunication between all EBS-trained coaches.


The following is required:

  • a university degree or an equivalent professional qualification
