Coaching Workshops

Introduction to Coaching

Using coaching skills to improve interpersonal relationships, communication effectiveness, productivity and satisfaction

This workshop explores fundamental coaching skills and practices that can be used for coaching or in everyday interactions to improve communications, foster new thinking, and produce meaningful outcomes. We distinguish how coaching is different from other support roles such as mentoring, managing and consulting, and discuss the benefits of coaching, especially for those who lead or manage others. The workshop emphasizes core coaching skills that heavily influence communication and relationship efficacy, listening and asking. Through group discussion, we will identify listening best practices, and the nature of powerful questions. The workshop also introduces the “GEM” coaching model for how to frame and phrase questions powerfully to elicit insight, discovery, new thinking, and new pathways for action and results. Workshop participants have the opportunity to observe a coaching demonstration, practice using coaching skills and the “GEM” coaching model, and receive constructive peer feedback to build and strengthen their coaching competencies. In addition, each participant creates a personal plan for incorporating and implementing these coaching practices in their lives.

Given the COVID-19 pandemic and current public health safety concerns, this workshop is only being offered via Zoom videoconference at this time. The workshop is limited to 25 participants and is delivered over two 2 1/2 hours sessions.
