Coaching Skills Training
Coach skills can be invaluable tools for people in many different areas of influence and applied to your context as a leader, manager, consultant, colleague, romantic partner, parent, teacher, or friend.
These trainings equip you with the coaching mindset and skills that enhance your ability to:
Build trust and cultivate connection
Motivate and create momentum
Generate ideas and expansive solutions
Stimulate deeper learning and transformative growth
And actually reach the goals you want to reach.
Coaching is not another task to add to your already busy schedule. It is an approach to interacting. A mindset. A life-giving way of leading.
I offer two variations on this theme as well as mentor coaching (see below).
The Coaching Workshop
This training, originally developed by Dr. Keith Webb based on his book The COACH Model, is a coaching techniques workshop for leaders and individuals wanting to learn professional level coaching skills, with the guiding principles and assumptions rooted in the Christian faith.
The REAL Coach Cycle
An open coach skills training I developed for creative business owners & consultants offering service-based solutions, and social impact professionals working for non-profit or social enterprises.
New dates and weblink with more information forthcoming. Please get in touch if you are interested and want to find out more.
As an ACC coach (6+ years) in good standing with the International Coach Federation, I offer mentor coaching in 5- or 10-hour packages for aspiring coaches working towards their ICF ACC credential. Please get in touch if you’d like to work together individually or form a group.
“Mentor Coaching for an ICF Credential consists of coaching and feedback in a collaborative, appreciative and dialogued process based on an observed or recorded coaching session to increase the coach’s capability in coaching, in alignment with the ICF Core Competencies.
Mentoring provides professional assistance in achieving and demonstrating the levels of coaching competency and capability demanded by the desired credential level.
Mentor Coaching should take place over an extended time (three-month minimum) in a cycle that allows for listening and feedback from the Mentor Coach while also allowing reflection and practice on the part of the individual being mentored.
Individual Leadership Coaching
Leaders in any realm often spend the majority of their time focused on others. But to lead well you also need somewhere to turn. Leadership coaching provides a space to reflect and grow.
You may need a place to process ideas, be challenged to see beyond your current perspective, or simply grow and develop in order to meet the demands of your position. We focus on what is most helpful and necessary for you, in terms of both professional and personal wellbeing.
If appropriate, I also work with an assessment that helps you become aware of your own leadership style and develop the three key areas of:
Crafting vision: imagining an improved future
Building alignment: relational development and cohesion
Ensuring execution: championing forward movement
