Building Coaching Capabilities

Are your coaching techniques developing independent problem solvers? Our intent is to help the person or persons being coached but our methods can vary greatly. Different scenarios may require you to provide directive instruction, corrective advise or prompting for self-adjustment.   Each of these coaching methods provide a different purpose and more importantly, a different impact on the person or persons being coached.

Our tendency is to think all forms of coaching are basically the same.  This is despite being aware that what an athletic coach yelling on the sidelines and a coach using Socratic questioning are doing is very different and done for different reasons.  One purpose of this workshop is to increase recognition that the method of coaching needs to match the intent for coaching.  One of these needs is coaching up to leaders in the organization, board of directors, or simply the individual you report to in the organization.

As an outcome of this workshop participants can expect the following benefits:

  • Choose the coaching approach to match the intent of the coaching
  • Demonstrate the use open-ended and non-leading questioning more consistently to prompt awareness and thinking as a coach
  • Practice listening skills and focus on what individuals are saying and thinking, a basis for effective humble inquiry.
  • Develop coaching relationships that are learning partnerships creating problem solvers without taking over the problem solving.
