Who We Are

About Us .

ONTCO was established in 2017 to provide a platform for ontologically trained coaches and facilitators to make a collective offer to organisations in the public, private and not-for-profit sectors. The modern workplace requires employees to have more than a set of technical or subject matter skills. To this end,  ONTCO was  founded on the assessment that Ontological Coaching can provide organisations, individuals and teams with a powerful methodology to improve performance, build effective working relationships with stakeholders and transform organisational culture. With ONTCO, individuals and teams learn a set of competencies and practices seldom acquired in the traditional preparation for work, that are the foundation of personal and professional success.

Coaching Model & Methodology .

ONTCO’s coaching offer is underpinned by a powerful methodology for effecting change for individuals, teams, and organisations. 

The model is defined by a dynamic interplay between language, mood, physiology (body and posture) referred to as Way of Being. The Way of Being is central to how people learn, function and change. It is an underlying driver of behaviour and communication.
