If you are here, you’ve probably heard and read the word 'coaching' tens, maybe hundreds of times. Coaching is a tool that can turn challenges into inspiring visions and inspiring visions into reality through action. This is the basic principle of coaching.

The modern world presents many challenges both individually and collectively. As we know, the world is becoming more and more unpredictable, the expectations towards leadership are changing, and the online world has shifted how we connect with each other. Statistics about our state of mental health are alarming.

Now let’s flip the coin. Imagine you can think about the future and gain confidence that you can influence it. This has never been more important. This is why we believe coaching is a tool that can help us create better futures for ourselves and others.

Some people roll their eyes, saying, 'Nowadays everyone is a coach.' Our response is: 'We wish!' This is what our mission is all about.

Imagine a world where more and more people knew how to live better

After the course, you will be able to achieve tangible and sustainable results by applying our coaching approach and toolbox. Regardless of how you choose to proceed — whether as a formally certified coach or informally with your colleagues, friends, and family members — we offer a truly valuable training experience that will provide you with the opportunity to utilize all the tools and techniques. This way, you will confidently coach yourself and others in many and varied situations immediately. And by 'immediately,' we mean from minute one.

Meet the International Coaching Certification Course by us, the World Coaching Organization. It was thoughtfully crafted for anyone who wants to learn more about coaching and how to use it on their private and professional lives. Also a fundamental tool for those who want to turn coaching into their profession, part-time or full-time.

our history

our manifesto

At WCO, we truly believe everyone is a coach. From a very young age, we start observing and interacting with the world, and our thoughts, speech, and actions begin to guide us and our interactions with those around us, whether we are aware of it or not.
It is crucial to develop skills that support high-quality thinking and interactions. These skills should be part of our basic education as humans in the world, and we truly believe we should all have easy access to them.
We also know this is a utopia, but a dream worth fighting for. With more and more well-trained coaches in the world, we will be able to develop ourselves into better thinkers, collaborators, and beings. At the end of the day, this should be a 'basic right.'

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.
