Coaching is an area of work in which more and more people are involved in more areas of professional and personal life.

In this article we will see several recommended coaching training programs in Madrid, as well as the characteristics that we must look at when selecting postgraduate training courses and options related to the coach’s activity.
The best coaching training in Madrid: a guide
The capital of Spain, being the largest city in the country, has many organizations that offer in one form or another training programs in coaching of varying duration and characteristics. Therefore, in these lines we will see what are the characteristics that are worth looking at to choose the best ones.
1. It is taught by experts
Coaching is itself a field of work that covers many needs and problems, and therefore it is necessary to learn from those who have a global knowledge of all this so as not to remain with a partial vision of the discipline.
2. Offer personalized attention
It is important to have teaching staff who are in a position to answer questions, monitor work, raise debates, etc.
3. Take advantage of the potential of new technologies
In the XXI century it is absurd not to use the potential of the Internet to improve the quality of teaching and the experience of students. The possibility of learning through videos and streaming must be there.
4. Provide clear and well structured content
Although many processes are included in coaching, the way in which teaching material is used and knowledge is transmitted must make sense and adapt to the needs of the learners.
5. It is backed by certificates
To have all the guarantees, it is good to know that a course or postgraduate course is endorsed by universities or regulatory entities of coaching training, and that we can include that title in our curriculum.
Where to look?
There are several coaching training organizations in Madrid that meet the characteristics that we have seen.
For example, Escuela Europea de Coaching (EEC), which has several centers spread over several countries and whose headquarters are in Madrid on Calle de Zurbano (Chamberí area), has the Executive Coaching Certification Program.
It is a program to professionally train coaches who, upon completion of the process, will obtain the title of Executive Coach by EEC with ACTP accreditation from the International Coach Federation. It has a face-to-face block and an online block (with real-time recordings), and it is especially aimed at executives, managers, psychologists, consultants, middle managers and Human Resources professionals in general.
The program is based on experiential training, which goes far beyond the transmission of theoretical knowledge and is based on training exercises such as role-playing. Since the coach works in changing and dynamic environments, training is also developed through practice-based exercises.
A computer platform designed to follow by streaming (live recordings) sessions and exercises is also used, all accompanied by the necessary technical assistance so that unforeseen problems do not arise.
