Introduction to Coaching Skills
In this course we cover basic modules from our full ICF Diploma in Skilled Coaching and there are no requirements outside of attendance in the sessions. This means that you get a solid foundation in coaching in the most efficient time frame possible. A great way to boost your skills or the skills of your workforce and enhance your capacity to bring out the best in yourself and others.
Transform your business with coaching
Even the toughest corporate environments are starting to realise that wellbeing, positive communication, and environments that raise up their staff are essential to business success. The last few years has been termed ‘the great resignation’ because people aren’t willing to compromise, they want to do work that matters and be valued as whole people. This does NOT mean stepping in to rescue people or disempower them through too much hand holding… It does mean understanding what is truly effective at communicating, understanding, and empowering people to thrive.
This course helps people to gain a skill that they will use in different contexts throughout their careers to have even more of a positive impact on people. Coaching is about helping people to reach their goals and maximise their strengths, while making sure that the process is right for them so they don’t burn out. Leaders, managers, changemakers, and service providers can all benefit from learning this skill.
The knowledge and understanding that you gain can be translated to different contexts. You might be going deep and really helping someone to make sure – or you might use your deep understanding to observe a situation and figure out how best to respond without necessarily doing deep coaching. You will learn how to adapt and to use your insight, not just how to follow a structure (although we give you those too!).
Even better if you fall in love with these skills and want to do the full training, these modules are taught on the full Diploma and you can easily convert or take advantage of a bespoke package.
