Institute for Adult Development

A Brand New Approach to Vertical Development

We believe in Coaching as the premier way to grow ourselves and our clients, whether individually or in teams. However, we think it needs to be done differently in 2023! So we are more than just 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.

Why Us?

The reasons to Join the IAD as a Developer of People

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.

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 Level Coaching framework to clients and colleagues.
