Åsa Gylling

Josefin Westermarck 

”Got much more than what I paid for: awesome life lessons and mindset ideas.”

Sandra Saarniit 

”This course was definitely part of my favourite learning experiences - so practical and well-designed. Pauliina managed to create such a comfortable and open learning environment and the mix of participants with varying experiences made the examples and practice very fascinating. Couldn't ask for a better intro into the
coaching world.”

Merlin Fraude

amazing course!”

Tommi Pollari

"If you have ever been interested in developing yourself, understanding yourself or helping others to help themselves, this is worth every penny. World-class trainers teaching you the skills to coach yourself and others is valuable whether in relationships or at the work place. Big thumbs up!"

Anna Lönnroth

"This course literally changed my life! I am now working as a Coach, training and coaching organizations. Without the inspirational training from Aksu and Pauliina, I would not be here! I am now more than satisfied with my life. So, I highly recommend the course but I also warn you: be prepared, your life might change in most drastic way!"

Saila Kokkonen

"Inspiring, engaging, practical, and so much fun! In addition to providing an introduction to coaching tools to use both professionally and personally, the WCO course drastically improved the way I view human communication and interaction overall. Thank you for a jump start on my way to a new mindset! Full recommendation for anyone, really."

John Swallow

"This is a great organization providing highly interactive and engaging courses. I love the fact that they maintain their course fees at an accessible level for everyone and still put 100% into every minute. Actually they are not just courses... they are life experiences."


 The answers to the questions you might have

This course has been well ahead of its time since it was initially put together in 2009! Its main innovations are:  

  • In-depth models and theory presented in an engaging and understandable way. Its practical approach is what even more experienced coaches appreciate. 
  • It is designed not only for people interested in professional coaching, but for a much larger audience. In addition to formal and informal coaching tools, all of it goes for personal development.  
  • It is low-cost in terms of two valuable resources: time and money. To make sure everybody can join! 
  • Oh, and did we mention the fun already? We are big believers in engaging and creative methods in learning. That’s why we hand-pick not only professional coaches, but professional trainers to deliver our courses. 

An open mind and a learner’s attitude are all you need to join this course. Any previous coaching experience is a plus, but not a necessity to grow into a skillful coach during our time together.

Interestingly, many participants with previous coaching training say that they gained very practical tools and useful understanding through our frameworks. Coaches should constantly be learning, and we believe that immersing in different kinds of coach training can be inspiring to the least.

We invite a group of learners of up to 25 people. This way, with a team of organizers, we ensure an engaging and intimate enough learning experience for everyone.  

Our certificate is general proof that you have spent a noticeable amount of time and effort learning solid coaching skills. We are big fans and have big respect for global coaching organizations, such as the EMCC and ICF. Their core competences and ethical principles follow us through our training. If you wish, you can use the coaching course to apply for certification through the EMCC or the ICF portfolio path. One day soon, possibly even another path!

If you decide to get certified by us, we will ask you to write two essays on given topics and to coach two people for six sessions each, writing a report on every session and audio recording at least a few of them. We will then go through your material, evaluate your performance according to the 4R core competences, and offer you personal feedback to help you develop.  

We offer you the basics and a bit more. After that it’s in your hands how you take it from there: many choose to go through the certification process and get their diploma, some choose an area of coaching to dive deeper into, others start applying and developing these skills in everyday life. Whatever you choose to do with this course and your future, you will be invited to be a part of a global supportive community united by this unique learning experience.

That is absolutely no problem at all! You will have enjoyed a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and we are assured that you will find the skills useful in different areas of your life. You will still get access to all the resources and our worldwide coach community, and who knows, maybe you will change your mind some day and decide to proceed with your certification process! 

Hello, we’re World Coaching Organization!

I’m a passionate trainer with over 20 years of experience in delivering engaging learning experiences to thousands of learners from around the world, stemming from the open public to industrial companies to small startups. I am in my element when I get to awaken insights through offering new perspectives and when I have the chance to encourage people to throw themselves into new and eye-opening experiences.  

Delivering coaching trainings is my all-time favorite, because learning coaching not only helped me in developing as a trainer and consultant, but because it became a part of my professional and personal DNA. And I could not be more excited to share these same, potentially life-changing lessons and methods with anyone who is open to learn.  

Oh, and when I am not working, you can find me enjoying long walks in nature, running on trails, freediving, or adventuring together with my husband. 

I’m Pauliina Hallama, a social psychologist, a nearly lifelong professional trainer, and a certified Life Coach, Systemic Business Coach® and Systemic Team Coach®. I’m proud and honored to be the Chief Coaching Officer and Master Coach Trainer at World Coaching Organization.
