This course will introduce you to some of the basic values of coaching and will familiarise you with the essential skills necessary for coaching in a range of different situations. It is ideal for anyone who would like to learn the core approaches to Personal and Business Coaching. Participants will learn how to set powerful goals for individual development, understand the non-critical, non-judgemental, and confidential nature of a coaching relationship and develop the skills of active listening and systemic questioning.
Coaching, in both life and business, provides us with a structure to address change in an effective and clear manner. It empowers us to set new goals, clarify options and provide solutions to complex issues. These skills can be put to good effect in the workplace or in assisting others to look at a change in their own personal lives. Self-coaching is also a very effective tool that people use in their own lives in order to address change.
In addition to learning a number of coaching skills, individuals will also be provided with an opportunity to see the benefits of coaching at a practical level by experiencing the coaching process in a structured and objective way.
