Institute for Adult Development

A Brand New Approach to Vertical Development

We are more than a membership organisation for professional coaches. We are bringing together, in one place, the future of Coaching Excellence and Leadership Excellence in two ways: we offer the only ethical benchmark system in the industry, and we focus not on the relationship but on the foundational construction of self as the area for development.

What this means is, as a member, you get a brand new development programme that opens your eyes to a new framework for helping your clients. This is called Next Level Coaching! You will benefit from growing your thinking in order to grow your coaching capacity and capability, which will allow you to gain new clients with potentially very different requirements.
As a coach, you get a far more useful method of coaching that goes straight to the root causes of client issues. As a client, you benefit from shorter coaching cycles, safe in the knowledge that your coach is absolutely capable of being your coach.

Next Level Coaching - The Next Level in Coaching

There are no coaching goals here. How you construct YOU is more important.

If we know how you construct you, and the limitations of your Intention, Awareness, Choice and Response, we will know how you construct your problem. By changing your construction, we remove the problem.

Why Us?

The reasons to choose the IAD as your Development Route

Icon

An Ethical Approach

Constructed Development Theory forms the foundation of our vertical development and our coaching approach. The Awareness Quotient is the measure with which we establish the development of coaches and mentors at the IAD. We consider this a more ethical approach as the developmental level of the coaches emerges throughout the programmes, and determine who we can coach.

How to Gain Accreditation

The Institute offers a bespoke number of programmes designed to take you, as a More Complex Other on a journey through the levels of self-awareness until you achieve such a position as to be capable of supervising other MCO's. Each workshop is designed to stretch your thinking to the next level and hold you there, with like-minded individuals who share your ethical approach to vertical development, so you can pass on the Next Leve Coaching framework to clients and colleagues.

“I feel more confident in my own approach knowing I have the IAD behind me. It's not a process but a way of thinking about coaching as a system.”

“Here in Germany, I prefer the IAD system to the other, bigger names out there. It has an ethic with which I agree culturally, and wholeheartedly. ”

“Being multilingual and multicultural, with experiences on several continents, I strongly believe the IAD will offer everyone an unmatched possibility to grow their awareness in regard of cognitive intentions, thus mastering complexity for the challenges to come.”
