In order to respond to the many and varied situations which arise during the practice of executive coaching, this advanced coach training workshop has been designed to provide experienced coaches with a range of additional tools and models to draw upon. Some are more suitable for use in formal coaching sessions and others for manager-as-coach. Most of the topics can be extended and run as one-day courses on their own, including Mindfulness at Work, Clean Language, Team Development, Neuroscience in Coaching, Coaching Skills Review, Managing Difficult Conversations, Somatic Coaching, Kotter’s Eight Steps to Change, the OK Corral, and Leadership Archetypes.
The style of the training is highly interactive. Participants will have plenty of co-coaching opportunities to practise working with the tools, to discuss best practice issues, the use of the tools, and to ask questions.
Participants receive a manual or handout with a summary of each tool.
If you are looking to enhance your coaching skills, improve your management techniques, or learn new skills for managing those difficult conversations, this is an excellent way to add to your toolbox. Click here for a case history of this course.
This course is currently run as an in house option only, not as an open course.
