CO-MINDS – The Change Leaders

Lifelong Learning

Learning accompanies us throughout our lives. Learning to walk and talk, learning at school, learning in relationships, learning at work, learning with your own children, learning to enjoy life and so much more.


In so many areas of life, we face new challenges. Flexibility and openness to new things are required in today's professional world. Only those who know their learning behavior and resources can use them optimally to achieve their personal learning stages and goals.


It's not just at school, at university or in vocational training that learners ask themselves questions about a favorable learning environment, how to deal with exam situations or how to deal with their motivation and concentration. Even people in the middle of their professional lives face challenges, such as important job interviews, the first presentation in front of an expert audience, an assessment center that is important for their professional career or an exam as part of a career reorientation.

How can learning coaching help with this?

Learning coaching

  • Supports and accompanies learners of all ages, especially pupils, students and trainees as well as employees and managers, throughout their entire development path.

  • Wants to enable learners to self-regulate their learning process in order to be able to learn more effectively and more happily.

  • Promotes independent learning because the learning coach deals intensively with the learner's thoughts, feelings and experiences. 

  • Is independent of the subject matter and therefore not subject-specific tutoring! So it's about the "how" and not the "what".


The term “coaching” stands for goal-, solution- and resource-oriented individual advice. The word “learning” makes it clear that learning coaching basically refers to learning and factors that influence learning, but also deals with exam skills, for example.

These factors can influence our natural eagerness to learn:

... and only the interaction of all factors makes learning successful.

How does learning coaching work in a 1:1 setting?

  • In a non-binding, free initial consultation (lasting approx. 20 minutes) to get to know each other, the learner's concerns are discussed and his/her questions about the content and process are answered.

  • The learning coaching itself usually includes 2-6 sessions (including a final discussion), each lasting 45-60 minutes, spaced 1-2 weeks apart. 

  • Learning coaching can take place in person and online.

This is how our learning coaches work:

Change processes are initiated in learning coaching. The client is strengthened and encouraged because the focus is on his/her abilities and resources, not the deficits. Together, concrete action strategies are developed that can be put into practice straight away. Content discussed will be treated as strictly confidential.


For educational institutions and companies

In learning-focused group coaching, we accompany several learners at the same time. The pupils, trainees or students deal with topics and questions relevant to their learning. It is a modified form of learning coaching and “multi-person coaching”. Class coaching can be carried out in a class or in groups of three or more people, regardless of whether the learners belong to a class or a group, for example as part of tutorials or support offers. The learners support each other within their peer group.


Methods in class coaching:

  • The learners advise and support each other as peer advisors

  • Individual learners are coached by the learning coach and peer advisors

  • Learners independently reflect on their learning process, guided by the learning coach.
