Transforming Conversations (4 days or 28 hours online)


“Brilliantly organised & facilitated. Best run course I’ve been on. Really seeing the value of something I was initially sceptical about”

Transforming Conversations is the foundation to becoming an outstanding coach. And it is a great way for you to get a solid understanding of coaching skills that you can use at work. Many experienced coaches come on 3D’s open programme as part of their CPD.

​The programme is designed by Claire Pedrick MCC who specialises in simplifying coaching so that conversations are more transformational. It is run by experienced coaches who are industry professionals.

The course is practical and based on sound theory​ and research​. You will learn to say less and watch as people have new insights that make a difference to them. Coaching is about changing your behaviour​. That takes practice.​ There are 8 practice sessions over 4 days (or 28 hours online) with a gap half way to allow you to process what you are learning. You will have a coaching session with a 3D Coach so that you can experience for yourself the value and quality of a thinking space.

Learning happens in the room – there are no assignments or essays although we will provide you with a comprehensive booklist ​if that’s useful to you. It might not be. W​e begin with​ some​ simple principles drawn from coaching mastery​. As we build on these each day you’ll be doing less and seeing more transformation.

Transforming Conversations is run as an internal programme in a variety of organisations​ around the world every week​. Some people use it as a first step (28 hours) in a pathway to portfolio accreditation​ as an ICF Certified Coach.​

The next open programme will be run online on Thursdays 16.00-18.00 (UK) between September and February. Claire Pedrick MCC will be the lead trainer.

“Really grateful for such a well crafted course which enabled me to be in a much more confident place in just four days! Stunning! I would definitely recommend 3D to others. Not least because all they teach adheres to ICF core competencies and the hours in training count towards accreditation, but mostly because the course delivers what it claims, in a professional and friendly way and at a great venue!” CS

“It was some of the highest quality training I’ve ever had the good fortune to receive.” JT

“I really liked extremely competent delivery and teaching, non-coercive, real, straightforwardness with no waffle, relevant, very simple and usable, transformational – honestly!” Karl Freeman

3D has been running this programme since 2004 (as Coaching for Excellence). We have trained people in the NHS, Church of England, Church in Wales, Local Government, corporate clients and independent coaches.
