CMI Level 7 - Coaching and Mentoring Development Programme

CMI Level 7 Coaching and Mentoring Programme is built on a foundation of key coaching and mentoring skills and techniques. Moving beyond this, participants will be given the opportunity to understand the significance of coaching within the learning and development strategy in any business or organisation.  

This course is designed for leaders who have the responsibility for developing and implementing coaching strategies, or who want to enhance their own personal competency. 

Participants will not only learn from the expertise of the course leader, key theories and models but also the experiences of their peers. By experiencing and reflecting upon different coaching approaches, people will develop a sound understanding of effective coaching methods, and learn how they can adapt and develop their own approach and strategy, specific to the needs of their organisation.  

At this level, the course will focus on individual self-awareness and coaching practice as well as the application of coaching and mentoring into the strategic organisational environment.

With a passion for learning; high standards; committed to social causes; grounded humility; an unerring instinct for developing potential. These qualities are amongst the hallmarks of Fitzroy’s 40-year career, and they continue to drive him as he develops his portfolio of work with individuals and enterprises.

He knows what it is to climb the career ladder. An HR Director at 29, a charity CEO by his mid-thirties, author of an award-winning research report, and a leader at executive and non-executive levels of SMEs and social enterprises over the last twenty years. Fitzroy has accumulated a wealth of knowledge in strategy, leadership development, coaching and mentoring.

A gifted communicator, Fitzroy is turning his talents to focus in two key areas. The first is to work with individuals to make career and life success meaningful through strengthening and expressing what he calls their ‘Achievement Mindset’. This will be delivered through a tailored support package of coaching and self-presentation, and is equally relevant to employed and self-employed professionals.

The second arises out of his experience as a child of the Windrush generation, and is about helping corporate enterprises get the best from inclusive leadership. Teams in today’s workplace need to know how to maximise the contribution and effort from everyone; this places a premium on relationships.
