The coach certification of HEC Paris executive education coaching

Learning methods


The pedagogy is above all an experiential one. The starting point is the current experience of the participants and enabling them to carry out a wide range of practices in sub-groups or in plenary sessions.

The learning methods also capitalize on collective intelligence and group dynamics, within the class or within the mutual aid groups, to promote learning, solidarity, and awareness.

The pedagogy is also based on key conceptual input from practitioners in co-facilitation sessions. Another key aspect of the learning approach revolves around testimonials or sharing experience. In addition to this, there is the progressive development of an individual project, personalized support, and a two-stage certification, in the middle and at the end of the program, before of a jury, to validate the acquisition of the necessary skills to practice as a professional coach.
