Sydney, August 1, 2016 – PHAROS LEADERSHIP is taking its 15 years of experience developing executive coaching and leadership development solutions, and launching the newly inaugurated Institute of Executive Coaching & Mentoring to educate and train coaches and executives, Australia and Asia Pacific.

Officially launching during August 2016, in Sydney and Singapore by Wade Azmy, Founder and Head of the newly formed institute, the institute aims to consolidate years of coaching training and executive coaching experience into programs of specialised education and training curriculum. The Institute will specifically benefit coaches and executives as they look to adopt its newly accredited Diploma of Executive Coaching by the Australian Skills and Quality Authority(ASQA).

“The IECM concept has been in development for many years. The establishment and launch of the institute demonstrate our commitments to the development of executive coaches and business leaders, as well as the up-skilling of current practitioners with the knowledge to help them face the challenges of today’s’ business” said Mr. Azmy.

At IECM, management understands the challenges of executive development and training in business. Training packages are designed with industry in mind and tailored to incorporate the latest research, theory and best practices from global tertiary institutions.
