This program establishes a solid theoretical foundation for coaching, supported by practical exercises and the chance to apply learning to real-life scenarios.
The program encompasses:
Definition and distinctions of coaching: We cover key coaching distinctions to create a high standard of professional coaching within the organisation.
The impact of personality types in the coaching process: Coaching can only be effective when all parties involved understand their own and others’ personality types.
Core coaching skills: We cover the key coaching skills to integrate them as a new leadership and communication style. This includes coaching styles, listening, asking questions, relating, trust building, challenging, and using intuition.
GROW (Goals, Reality, Options and Will) coaching model: This model and the associated coaching skills and competencies enable participants to build on core coaching skills. Practised together at a masterful level, they become a way of “being” a coach versus just “doing” the techniques of coaching.
Coaching playground: Coaching is best learned by doing. We put learning into practice with exercises including individual real-life cases, ‘Sand Pit’ coaching, ‘Stop and Go’ coaching and one-to-one coaching.
