How will I learn?

What methods do you use? What approach do you have?
Experiential Learning

Experiential learning is the most efficient way for acquiring new skills that remain with you. You get concrete tools that you can immediately put into practice, while you also get to experience their impact on yourself. All our programs are based on experiential learning: this means we rarely use presentations and lectures in-class. The learning is done through a lot of practice and exercises where the participants learn by doing, observing, experiencing, self-reflection and feedback from their peers, which are essential for creating awareness and making an impact. Of course, handouts and materials are sent at the end of each module, but practice is the key.

Volcano® Coaching

Volcano® coaching is a holistic approach to doing coaching. We use this metaphor to refer to the sleeping power source of the untapped potential which we bring to life. For long-term results we discovered that self-awareness is the key element to help clients achieve goals. Anchoring the goals into a strong foundation ensures their fulfilment. All our 15+ years of experience of coaching are gathered in this powerful, modern approach to doing coaching. With very carefully chosen exercises and experiential learning you set a goal from knowing your true self and your values. From knowing what gifts and talents you have and with awareness of your dreams and visions you find the energy and power; and in this you find your motivation to reach your goals.


What you focus on grows! This is something that guides us as coaches and is also deeply rooted into the way we do training and into the flow of our coaching programs. As a coach you have unyielding faith into your client and see their greatness. You don’t need somebody to tell you what’s wrong, you grow when somebody gives you feedback on what you do good. We build on what is already there because you have the potential and the answer lies within you. As a participant in our program, you will deeply experience what that means and know that your uniqueness makes you the best coach you can be.

In addition and as a bonus, CoachCompanion invites all our program participants to join us for a Swedish Fika, on all training days. The Fika is a uniquely Swedish tradition, of mingling over coffee and specific Swedish delicacies. Therefore we offer all participants a yummy start to the day with a delicious breakfast buffet, to go with their morning coffee, as well as an afternoon coffee break with organic treats. Enjoy your Fika as you mingle with a great mix of participants who share their experiences with each other from day one!
