There is no denying it: 'coaching' has become a hollow term today: the profession is not protected and anyone can call themselves a coach. In addition, it is often referred to as 'mentoring' or 'consulting'. The managers and coaches who obtain an ICF-accredited certificate at Training & Coaching Square are educated to become focused 'effect coaches', focused on sustainable evolution - far away from the superficial quick fixes.


Effectcoaching is a smart business strategy to keep evolution and innovation going and to challenge established habits. Even when people have lost their courage or want to give up.

The result is effect coaching:

  • Simplifying reflection and choice processes
  • Lowering resistance to change - by continuing to question one's own truths
  • Promoting self-motivation: core to work-based health
  • Standing in one's own strength without victim behaviour
  • Believing in one's own potential
  • Self-questioning and reflection that stimulates the flow of evolution, innovation and growth

All Training & Coaching Square programmes are given by experienced coaches/trainers of Professional Certified Coach and Master Certified Coach level. We have been a pioneer and trendsetter in coaching programmes with innovative methods for 15 years: pedagogically and technologically. Our expertise is broad and deep: we were one of the founders of professional coaching in Belgium and were the first training institute in Belgium to be recognised by the International Coach Federation (ICF) in 2007.


The expert in the field of training and coaching
We ensure a top-quality professional training programme in which participants go through a genuine evolution. Obtaining a certificate from Training & Coaching Square represents an achievement: under the leadership of the founders and managers Marleen Boen and Leen Lambrechts, both Master Certified Coach (MCC), we made 'coaching' a hallmark. Our alumni can comfortably reflect and question each coaching theme so that the coachee gets a broadening of perception based on self-reflection. The foundation for making new and powerful decisions at every level of consciousness.

Our professional coaching training for managers and coaches is based on an extensive business experience. We are continuously keeping our finger on the pulse of what is needed in our changing and disruptive society. Coaching is the ideal business strategy to give managers the sustenance they need: our focus is therefore on the human side of transformation.

With ROOT+GROW© you engage in continuous process learning, a mature way of learning in which you keep your finger on the pulse of what's going on in today's society ... and tomorrow, with an open mind and wonderment. You personally evolve from 'interpretative or narrative mode' to 'listening and questioning mode'. This is the best way to stimulate new choices, answers and determination. As a manager or coach, you enhance your toolbox with powerful competencies which make the difference. By confronting contradictions and connections, for example, you support a change in the habits of your coachees. Managers and coaches who engage in process learning dare to leave their comfort zone and continue to grow both professionally and as human beings.


As a participant, we want to provide you with the best possible training experience throughout the training programme, which will also have a real effect on your competencies and attitude as a coach. That's why we also add an aspect of Interactive Content & Feedback Learning: this is experience learning at its best. The aim is to increase your decisiveness so that you can deal with 'unforeseen factors' in coaching and leadership in a flexible way. And of course that fits in perfectly with today's 'Volatile, Uncertain, Complex & Ambiguous' society. Your ROOT+GROW© training will become less technical and more an 'experience' of coaching as a profession.

Our objectives:

  • Being able to apply your coaching competencies practically: less theory and more guided coachings with direct feedback and an action and reflection plan.
  • More involvement in your own learning process: fewer schools and more ownership
  • More depth in your own learning process: also individual learning from your comfortable chair to get out of the comfort zone
  • More preparation for each block so you can go straight into learning mode: a large part of the theory is given as 'pre-reading', for example via white papers, summary of a book with question assignments, short films, ...

In short: ROOT+GROW© is the foundation for coaching and leadership in a changing world.
