Other than training programmes, PwC’s Academy is also offering coaching services both internally to PwC and externally to clients. We have a pool of coaches, all accredited through the European Mentoring and Coaching Council (EMCC). 
 The Coach’s role is to ask challenging and skillful questions, aiming to assist coachees in structuring their thoughts and finding their own solutions. 

We are currently running two Coaching initiatives, for our people, as well as External coaching.

Leadership Coaching

The Leadership coaching initiative, is offered to nominated managers and aims in providing a safe space for leaders-to-be to share any concerns, and support them in their current and future roles. Leadership coaching is additional to the day-to-day coaching our people are receiving from their engagement leaders. 

Coachees have the opportunity to build a professional relationship with an accredited coach through one-to-one confidential sessions, focusing on:

  • Remaining resilient during difficult periods of increased pressure
  • Strengthening their capabilities to lead and support others around them
  • Managing effectively significant changes like promotions, transfers, secondments, parenting

Coaching Supervision sessions

Per EMCC Global, “Supervision is a safe space for reflective dialogue with a practising supervisor, supporting the supervisee’s practice, development and wellbeing”. EMCC requires all Accredited Coaches (and Coaches in the process of becoming accredited) to attend as a minimum 4 coaching supervision sessions per year (either one-to-one or group supervision).  For Senior Practitioners the requirement is 1 hour of supervision for every 35 hours of practice.  To abide by the EMCC requirements and ensure the quality of your coaching sessions, we are providing a few Coaching Supervision options.  Please follow the link below for more information and registration.

The purpose of this initiative is to provide a safe space to all colleagues for sharing any concerns and being supported, if needed, in their current and future roles.

Colleagues will have the opportunity to build a professional relationship with a PwC Coach through one-to-one confidential sessions.

In order to maintain the quality of our coaching offering and abide by the EMCC requirements, we also offer supervision services on a regular basis to our internal coaches, as well as to external coaches.
