This two-session 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 two core coaching skills that heavily influence communication and relationship efficacy. 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.
As a result of these workshop sessions:
- Participants can describe how coaching supports personal and professional potential
- Participants are better prepared to generate coaching questions that support a coaching conversation
- Participants can describe the framework of a coaching conversation
- Participants are better prepared to use a coaching style when interacting with others
