Q5 95’s Coaching for Leadership Diploma is a new programme designed for leaders/managers, executive coaches, business coaches and HR/L&D professionals seeking a professional coaching accreditation directly relevant to leadership coaching, leadership development and performance management.

Thanks to our partnership with Fuse, who are revolutionising the way the world learns, you can follow the e-learning programme wherever you are based. Our fees are designed to be affordable, and each learning group is limited to a maximum of 14 people.

The programme is accredited with both the International Coach Federation and the European Mentoring and Coaching Council, offering participants a choice of routes to individual coaching credentials.

We’ve worked hard to ensure that the programme’s content is relevant in today’s digital workplaces and can adapt to different organisational cultures and leadership development programmes.

The practical models and techniques have already proved their effectiveness in a Big Four professional services firm, a global building materials manufacturer, a leading charity, technology business, and European consumer products business.


Module 1 'Keep Right' Conversations: 

This stand-alone workshop draws on recent developments in brain science and other disciplines to help participants enhance the impact of coaching-style conversations with colleagues, direct reports, and clients.

Module 2 Breakthrough Cycle:

This equips participants to run a series of formal coaching sessions, and can be combined with Module 1 to provide a foundation in coaching. It includes a goal-setting process grounded in recent research into different motivational drivers.

Module 3 Leadership Coaching:

This places the coaching skills acquired firmly within the organisational context in which leaders/managers operate and focuses on leading self, leading others, and leading organisations. We broaden awareness of the need for robust objective data in coaching to ensure appropriate challenge.

Module 4 Coaching Ethics and Assessment:

This final Module provides participants with the opportunity to consider a range of potential ethical challenges. This is an interactive experience exploring case studies. The Module includes an optional assessment of coaching skills.



  • I thoroughly enjoyed the whole course experience. Our facilitators were great teachers with humour and vast knowledge of their profession.
  • Attending the Coaching for Leadership programme was not only a great experience and a pleasure, but I also now feel well prepared and confident to start working with my first clients. 
  • The course is simple, to the point, and provides exactly the background of neuroscience, psychology, etc. to acquire a sound scientific foundation. For me, this was certainly among the best courses I have ever participated in. 

Flexible eLearning:

We deploy the latest technologies to make it easy to learn alongside busy work lives with live weekly video conference sessions, membership of an online social learning community giving access to downloadable resources, and interactions both with the course facilitator and other participants. 
And where a sufficient number of participants live close to each other, we organise local coaching circles.
