From the Instructor:
Welcome to Coaching Great Performances! I believe this is a must course for anyone who will be in a leadership position, managing and supervising others. Participants will understand that coaching is not consulting, mentoring, or advising employees, but rather encouraging and expecting those you lead to set and achieve their own goals. Your job, as a coach, is to ask open-ended questions, support, and encourage your clients/employees in exploring their next steps, and hold them accountable for their intentions. Coaching empowers and builds confidence and competence in those we manage! The ability to coach supports, energizes, and motivates your clients and employees! In this course you will be introduced to coaching skills, including questioning strategies. You will have the opportunity to coach someone and to share your learning with our class. You will become familiar with the International Coaching Federation (ICF). You will discover that through the coaching process, clients can discover their blind spots and experience break-through moments that can lead to new patterns of behavior! Also in the course, I will ask you to conduct some personal work around value clarification, goal setting, and constructing a life plan. In conclusion, what I have found is that most clients look forward to being coached, experience renewed energy, and view a brighter horizon! The class is facilitated by liscensed and experienced professional coach with a private practice.
