"Taking the Coach Approach program was truly life-changing for me. As a new coach, I knew there was a gap in my coaching style that only proper training could help fill. When I discovered this program, something inside of me was being called towards it and I knew I had to take the leap. I'm so glad I did because I wasn't even prepared for what I got - it was a truly exceptional 3 day program that taught me valuable skills in a way that felt comfortable & easy. After day 1, I had a chance to put into practice what I'd learned with a real life client, and I already saw tremendous value & positive change in my conversation with her. I really loved this program and would recommend it to ANYONE looking to develop their coaching skills."

About the founder

Hello, I’m Pam Griffiths, Founder of The Coach Approach Leadership Academy™, a best selling author, Certified Executive Coach (CEC) and a Professional Certified Coach (PCC) with the International Coach Federation.

I am passionate about supporting the coaching profession and helping others step into their true potential. We all have the capability within us to do great things and that's why the world needs more coaches to help us realize our untapped potential. I’ve successfully coached and trained thousands of entrepreneurs, coaches and leaders toward achieving extraordinary results, and live extraordinary lives.  

With over twenty years coaching others to develop leadership skills in themselves, I know that it takes a special kind of person and mindset to rise to the top and there is one thing that separates extraordinary leaders from mediocre ones:  It’s the dedication to consistently develop self and others, and the commitment to get the training and support to do just that.

I’ve been fortunate to have some amazing mentors that supported my development over the years and understand at a visceral level the value of that support.  Now I have the honour of mentoring our certified Coach Approach Leadership Academy™ facilitators who assist me with delivering this transformational, ICF accredited curriculum. The world needs more coaches to unleash capability around the globe!

My Mission: To inspire coaches, thought leaders and entrepreneurs around the globe to change behaviours, transforming themselves and the people around them.

Together we are revolutionizing the coaching industry!

How is The Coach Approach Leadership Academy™ different?

In the Coach Approach Leadership Academy™, you will learn Pam’s unique and proven methodology for successful coaching conversations. Pam distilled and simplified her academic coaching education and created The 5 Steps to The Coaching Conversation™, a pure coaching process that is easy to understand and follow.

In coach training, we teach you how to ask the right questions at the right time, because TRUE coaching is not about telling.

What will I walk away with?  

You will walk away with the skills, knowledge and tools of how to communicate more effectively, build trust and engage teams for high performance. A resource guide containing all of the practical tools we teach during our 3 days. Tools you can take back to your organization or your own coaching practice to help you implement change and embed a coaching culture.  You will also walk away with 30 ICF accredited coach specific training hours to put toward earning your ACC or renewing your credential.

How do I know if this program is for me?  

You might be thinking that coach training is best suited for someone who wants to become a certified executive coach. While I always recommend this program to coaches, the truth is, refining coaching skills helps leaders to better engage and motivate their teams. Research has shown that creating a coaching culture significantly reduces employee turnover, and increases employee engagement and productivity. 

Ask yourself these questions:

  • Am I feeling rundown and burnt out?
  • Am I trying to do it all myself??
  • Do I need to get clear on my goals?
  • Can I improve my leadership skills?
  • Am I unhappy with the results I’m seeing at work? 

The Coach Approach Leadership Academy™ requires big thinking and the outcome is transformational. That’s what our clients tell us. If you’re ready to see greater results in your day-to-day work life and want to feel more fulfilled in your role, this program is for you.  

Can I pay in installments?  

Absolutely! In fact, we have a brand new payment plan to make it easy for you to join us.  

Is there any benefit to taking the program now instead of next year?

Good question! How soon do you want to see results? The sooner you start, the quicker you will get ahead of the change you want to make.
