Experience what it’s like to be an executive coach and begin to understand the power and success of coaching. 


EBS Executive Education is a Partner of Academy of Executive Coaching (UK) starting from 2012 with the intention to provide internationally recognized coaching programmes and executive coaching in Estonia.


The wider purpose of the Academy of Executive Coaching (AoEC) is to foster a coaching culture within organisations. AoEC believes that managers and leaders who have coaching will substantially improve their communication, flexibility and performance. If those managers also learn to coach, they will manage with a coaching style, and the whole company will start to flourish.


AoEC approach to coach training is wholly practical with results-focused courses designed to embed positive change into organisations of every kind. But at the same time they emphasize the importance of the quality of relationships and conversations in organisations, and understanding of behaviours between individuals.


AoEC professional standards could not be higher – the programmes are accredited by the ICF (International Coach Federation) and The European Mentoring and Coaching Council (EMCC), and have Association for Coaching (AC) and Middlesex University validation. More information:

Our coach training opportunities range from entry-level coaching skills to advanced coaching to deepen your practice:
