The Academy of Executive Coaching (AoEC) and Hoolr today announced their partnership to power the coaching practice of AoEC UK delegates, alumni and coaching clients. With Hoolr’s innovative technology, AoEC-trained coaches will be able to manage all of their coaching engagements, follow good practice and track accreditation progress seamlessly in a simple platform.
As one of the world’s leading executive coach training companies, the AoEC is committed to championing coach development. Using this technology, which the AoEC will call ‘GATHER’, participants and alumni of UK AoEC diploma programmes will be equipped to manage their practice more clearly and efficiently*. By handling key tasks surrounding coaching sessions, ‘GATHER’ frees up time for coaches to focus on having meaningful and impactful conversations – coaching!
“Our purpose is to give people access to world-class coaching. By taking care of the admin surrounding coaching we are allowing coaches to focus on delivering the best service,” said Alasdair Ireland, chief executive of Hoolr. “Partnering with the AoEC allows coaches to receive high quality, rigorous training with best-in-class technology.”
John Hill, commercial director of the AoEC said “Coaching is a relatively ‘young’ profession and, not surprisingly, already it is facing the need to evolve. With advances in technology and other fields, there are exciting opportunities for coaching to become much more impactful than it already is. We are at the beginning of being able to leverage and explore the possibilities. We are thrilled to be partnering with Hoolr on this journey.”
As we transition through this pandemic, 71% of coaches believe they will need to invest in more technology. Having easy-to-use technology that does not detract from coaching will become more important. Coaches will be able to use GATHER to help manage their sessions, follow good practice, find out about further coach training and manage accreditation in a single place.
By giving AoEC trainees and alumni access to automation and guided good practice, GATHER will provide a powerful growth opportunity for coaches training with the AoEC.
Within the global coaching industry, this is a pioneering partnership between a coaching platform and a coach training provider. Hoolr will be able to support the AoEC to grow its coach trainee engagement by providing a world-class user experience and insightful data.*Available from 2022 to participants on the public UK Practitioner Diploma in Executive Coaching programme and will soon be available to all UK AoEC Alumni and wider coaching community.
