Coach, Role Model, Counsellor, Supporter, Guide…do these words ring a bell? Being a coach involves being a role model, sometimes a counsellor or supporter, and always a guide. Coaching is based on a partnership that involves giving both support and challenging opportunities to employees. Knowing how and when to coach is an essential skill that can benefit both you and your organization. This one-day workshop will help you become a better coach in all senses of the word.

This one-day workshop will help you teach participants how to:

–       Use coaching to develop their team

–       Develop the coaching skills that help improve individual performance

–       Demonstrate the behaviours and practices of an effective coach

–       Recognize employees’ strengths and give them the feedback they need to succeed

–       Identify employee problems and ways you can help to correct them

 Introduction and Course Overview

You will spend the first part of the day getting to know participants and discussing what will take place during the workshop. Students will also have an opportunity to identify their personal learning objectives.

 Defining Coaching

The first part of the morning will be spent exploring what coaching means (in general and to participants), reviewing coaching skills, and evaluating the pre-assignment.

 Interpersonal Communication Skills

Communicating well is a key aspect of successful coaching. During this session, participants will explore different communication skills and create an action plan.

 Self-Disclosure

Joe Luft and Harry Ingraham developed the Johari windows concept, a way of looking at our self-awareness and our ability to ask feedback of others. This session will look at the window and examine how we can use it when coaching.

 The Coaching Model

This session will explore a four-step coaching model that can be applied to any situation.

The four steps:

1)    Where are you and where do you want to be?

2)    What are your options?

3)    What steps will you take?

4) Give feedback and prompt self-reflection.

The Tools of a Good Coach:

  • Uses questions to prompt discussion on good progress
  • Reaches agreement on progress made
  • Checks the learner’s understanding
  •  Gives praise
  •  Looks for good points to reinforce
  • Clarifies the next steps
  • Makes it clear that he or she is looking forward to the next stage

Feedback

Feedback is an essential component of coaching. You will discuss types of feedback and offer some tips in lecture format during this session.
