One of the best ways to experience coaching, is through the beauty of the Seychelles Island. These islands, retain the charm of an undiscovered paradise for clients to go through the journey of coaching. Clients will experience the 4 stages of coaching: setting a vision, preparing a plan, experience a journey, and reflect on it. Exploring the island was carefully selected in this itinerary to depict each phase. To help enhance the experience, we also recommend clients take a profile assessment in addition to the coaching sessions, to understand their own learning style and way of processing information. Clients who choose to do the assessment will go through a 2-hour workshop, to understand how the assessment works.
