  • "I have been a coach with Pharos for over ten years. From the beginning, I was offered quality training that took me on a journey from a primitive understanding of coaching technique and coaching psychology to the Australian Standard for executive coaching - and beyond. At Pharos, our development never stops. Whether it is on the job or formal training, it is fifty-two weeks of the year of continuous education by seminar, reading or personal one-on-one discussion which complements our practice. Pharos can rightly hold its head high in the coaching industry as a world leader in developing executive coaches."

  • "I found the training at Pharos extremely enlightening and insightful. There is a lot of knowledge accumulated through years of experience that I benefited from in a short time. I learn the power of empathy and smart use of questions to draw the coachee to better understand himself/herself and see clearly the situation he/she is confronted with, and the tools to navigate complex situations. Feel confident that I can be an effective coach after the training and able to grow myself through  continuous professional development."

  • "I spent over six months going through a rigorous coaching training program instituted by Pharos before I was accredited. The program provided an insight into the theoretical executive coaching underpinnings, in addition to my sizable management experience. It also helped me realise, with the hindsight, what I could have done better or what I could have avoided. Now through on-going weekly learning sessions the process continues. I learn something new every week."

  • "I found Pharos’ evidence-based coaching methods very powerful and effective in delivering results desired by my coachees and their organizations. The blended learning methods, coupled with one-on-one coaching by Wade, ensured I have a solid foundation in coaching from the start. Now, with on-going case supervision and continuous professional development, my coaching skills continue to scale new heights progressively."

  • "I believe the Pharos Institute methodology is a unique coach training platform that has been a game changer in its approach to facilitate the learning of a professional skill set.  In addition to the psychological and scientific disciplines, it emphasizes on the whole person and finding positive outcomes in an approachable and sustainable manner.  The coursework was challenging but very rewarding as the concepts work seamlessly together.  The methodologies along with the continuing education ensures that my engagement with this discipline is relevant and professional."
