ISC Group
Training

We are delighted to announce that ISC Group are launching training and development courses. 

ISC Group has worked to put together a series of courses designed to help members invest in their career and personal growth, through constant member feedback and collaboration with experienced coaches.

These programmes will be led and facilitated by some of our trusted partners, many of whom you would have met before. The courses are designed to work in conjunction with the workshops and events that we provide through our memberships but will delve deeper into specific aspects of career development in the trademark, safe ISC environment.

Executive Coaching Programme

Facilitated by Famn

ISC Group have partnered with Famn to provide Group Coaching for a select cohort of up to 7 women in leadership positions across the insurance sector.

The Programme will be supportive, stimulating and challenging in equal measure and provides an opportunity for developing self-awareness and allowing you to make more informed choices about how we build relationships (in work and beyond).

Overview:

This is an opportunity for you to get involved with coaching, if you are not already. Although key models and frameworks will be introduced, this programme is not a training course as the real value will come from the opportunity to develop your awareness of self and others through group conversation and exploration.

As with all of our events, we will ensure to provide an environment that is both safe and challenging where you can find nourishment and solidarity but also deepen your understanding of the habitual patterns that we use in managing our lives and building relationships.

The Programme kicks off with an introductory 1-2-1 call with our coach, followed by group coaching sessions every six months. We conclude the Programme with another 1-2-1 to review and consolidate the learnings.
